Cytogenetic Biodosimetry Laboratory Brochure

Cytogenetic biodosimetry is used to identify damage to chromosomes in individuals who have been exposed to ionizing radiation. Oak Ridge Institute for Science and Education (ORISE) researchers at the Radiation Emergency Assistance Center/Training Site (REAC/TS) use the latest technology and software to quantify chromosomal abnormalities. This information is then used to calculate the radiation dose estimates that are used by physicians in determining the appropriate treatment for a patient.

To learn more about the ORISE Cytogenetic Biodosimetry Laboratory (CBL), a brochure is available for download. To view this brochure, you will need the Adobe Reader, which can be downloaded free from the Adobe Web site.
