    Author : Daniel Gälman; [2018]
    Keywords : I-131; Iodine-131; Monte-Carlo Simulations; dose rate measurements; taxi driver; newborn; thyrotoxicosis; restriction times; thyroid cancer;

    Abstract : The aim of this work is to introduce a couple of new exposure scenariosof interest when personnel, family members and general public are externally irradiated from patients treated with Iodine-131. A series of modied ORNL matematical phantoms were used in Monte-Carlo simulations in PENELOPE-2011 to determine dose rates to: a cab driver where thepatient sits in the back seat at opposite side, a newborn child held by an adult patient, a doctor giving treatment to a patient while leaning over the hospital bed and collective effective dose to bus passengers if the patient travels home by bus.
