Dose and Risk Assessments
Auxier scientifically investigates sources of radiation and potential impacts on human health and/or the environment.
Risk assessments focus on potential current and future exposures in specific scenarios. Using data compiled from a risk assessment exercise, a numerical probability of cancer induction in a potentially impacted population can be determined. Auxier’s team of scientists excels in accurately evaluating radiological doses and risks.
Under several circumstances, dose and/or risk assessments are necessary and desirable. Some examples are:
- When radioactive materials are found in unwanted places, such as building surfaces or environmental media,
- When an individual or population is suspected of having an unanticipated internal or external exposure to radioactive materials, and
- When planning for potential future scenarios, such as a company adding a new activity, product line, or service that involves the use of radioactive materials.
