25-26 January, 2007 Celebration of 10 years Anniversary of Establishment of Radiation Protection Centre of Lithuania, Official Opening of New Premises and International Conference

European Union supports Lithuania to ensure radiation protection of general public and environment

Radiation Protection Centre (RSC) has finished the Transition Facility project “Strengthening of emergency preparedness for nuclear and radiological accidents in Lithuania” (further-project) financed by the European Union (EU) and Lithuania. The main purpose was to properly prepare for possible nuclear and radiological accidents in Lithuania and to protect the general public and environment against possible impact of ionizing radiation.

On 9 December, Radiation Protection Centre is organizing a seminar ,,The usage of equipment of ionising radiation for the research, dose estimation and optimisation of radiation protection”. During the seminar measurements of external and internal exposure of public and workers will be presented, practical exercises of gamma spectrometric measurements will be shown, quality control of medical X-ray equipment will be explained.
International workshop on radiation protection in Vilnius

Ionizing radiation in comparison with other hazardous factors is particular due to the fact that any of its quantity (dose) might cause detrimental effects. It might occur that humans shall be protected in such a way that zero doses are received by them. However, it is unrealistic. Doses are to be decreased down to some optimum levels. It is done by optimization of radiation protection.
However, it is difficult to set these optimum levels. It is even more difficult to find the ways of decreasing the doses.
Radiation protection professionals all around the world encounter problems of optimization of radiation protection. Information is exchanged in order to minimize probability of faults. Anybody who had similar problems might advice very much. Networks of information exchange are created, though not so many of them are operative yet.
Lithuanian Radiation Protection Centre long ago promoted the idea of creation of such network in the Central and Eastern Europe. The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has supported the idea and the small network was established in 2002 with the support of the IAEA. Such networks are created also in other parts of world.
The workshop is held in Vilnius on November 16-18. Radiation protection professionals form more than 20 European and Central Asian countries will discuss their problems and establish the new large network of information exchange. The workshop is supported by the IAEA.
Lithuanian radiation protection professionals are ready to share their experience and help solving radiation protection problems in other countries.
Depleted uranium was found at the aircraft crash site

On Tuesday, 20 September experts from Radiation Protection Center at the site of Russian aircraft crash found about 2 kg of metal, the composition of which contains radioactive substances. It was wire sticks of 150 mm length and 3 mm diameter.

The dose rate at the surface of one wire stick was about 1 mSv/h. The total dose rate of all sticks collected in 20 September was 15 mSv/h.
During the spectrometric analyses carried out in Radiation Protection laboratory it has been defined that this metal is delpleted uranium with the following composition: 0,28 % U-235, 99,72 % U-238.
