Impact Deposition of Radon Progeny (218Po ,214Po and 210Po) on the Surface of Human Blood: In Vitro Study
This work presented new irradiation technique to estimate the impact of radon's progeny deposition on the human blood surface on some blood diseases, using CR-39Nuclear Track Detectors (NTDs). The results show that the present design has good efficiency and the loss rate of radon concentration was a little. Amount of the loss of radon concentration during the process of mixing blood component did not affect on the efficiency of exposure technique. Therefore, method of mixing blood component process was successful. As well as, human blood exposure to radon gas (2210±5.1Bq/m3) make thrombocytopenia, and no effect on red blood cell. And rate of radon absorbed dose into the human blood samples is high at 20 minutes.
