Basic radiation concepts explained by REAC/TS staff
To help health officials and the public better understand radiation and radioactive contamination, physicians and health physicists with the Radiation Emergency Assistance Center/Training Site (REAC/TS) have developed informational videos that address specific questions about radiation exposure.
These videos are readily available for reference by physicians and health care personnel, first responders, government officials and response agency staff, as well as members of the media and the general public.
