The ENEA Radiation Protection Institute for many years has been playing a reference role in Italy on external and internal dosimetry in the field of industrial and medical activities. A series of laboratories and facilities are operative in the field of neutron, photon and electron metrology, personal dosemeter development, whole body counting equipment development (especially in the field of bone-seeker nuclide measurements), and naturally occurring radioactive materials (NORM) measurements. In all these research and development activities Monte Carlo modeling demonstrated its increasingly important role as a valuable tool to support the experiments. Some examples of the wide range of these applications are briefly summarized in the present paper.

Abstract

The ENEA Radiation Protection Institute for many years has been playing a reference role in Italy on external and internal dosimetry in the field of industrial and medical activities. A series of laboratories and facilities are operative in the field of neutron, photon and electron metrology, personal dosemeter development, whole body counting equipment development (especially in the field of bone-seeker nuclide measurements), and naturally occurring radioactive materials (NORM) measurements. In all these research and development activities Monte Carlo modeling demonstrated its increasingly important role as a valuable tool to support the experiments. Some examples of the wide range of these applications are briefly summarized in the present paper.
