[The dynamics of the content of incorporated cesium radionuclides in the population of regions with an elevated background radiation].

[Article in Russian]


The authors represent summarized data on the time course of incorporated Cs in the population of the Krasnogorsk District of Bryansk Province over the period of June 1986-July 1989. A RIKh-5M device used as a counter of human radiations, its technical data and calibration methods were described. A retrospective analysis has shown that the main accumulation of radionuclides occurred before May 15 1986. The highest rates of Cs clearance from the body were noted in the period of August 1986 till February 1987, the average resultant periods of semiclearance for different populated areas and groups of population were 55-85 days. The ratio of accumulated Cs in children and adults was 0.3, in men and women--1.4. The effectiveness of measures aimed at reducing collective doses of internal irradiation was analyzed.
