According to REAC/TS, the key to early medical management of internalized radioactive materials is not necessarily radiation dose calculation and assignment, but radiation dose magnitude estimation. An early estimate of the magnitude of the intake and resulting dose can be used to predict potential biological consequences and the corresponding need for medical intervention. All radiation doses should be assigned using proper dosimetry techniques. However, waiting for the results of the formal internal dosimetry process to make treatment decisions often takes time that may delay Early Internal and External Dose Estimation treatment. Learn more about early internal and external dose magnitude estimation with this REAC/TS document.
