The purpose of this workbook is to set practical exercises that students can work through, responding to specific questions. Above all, the students should feel that they have actually carried out the tasks themselves and will be more confident to teach others and ensure that these exercises continue to be carried out in their respective areas.  The topic of this workbook is quality assurance, so all material is designed to assist in the maintenance of the highest quality of work that can be achieved, under the prevailing conditions.

The use of ionizing radiation is widespread and virtually indispensable to modern society for industrial and medical applications. In addition to the many benefits afforded by the beneficial uses of radiation, there are also associated hazards, such as industrial accidents, medical overexposures, disposal of radioactive waste, environmental radioactivity, accidents from ‘orphan’ sources, and malevolent uses. Even where there is a good infrastructure, such as in the United States of America and the European Union, hundreds of sources have been lost. Therefore, it is essential for every country to have adequate infrastructures to ensure the safety and security of all radiation sources, including X ray machines, accelerators, sealed radioactive sources, radioactive waste and environmental radioactivity.

For radiotherapy to be safe and effective a number of technical conditions have to be met to ensure that the radiation beam is appropriate for each individual patient and that the dosage received by the patient is as planned. While it is the function of the radiotherapist to decide the characteristics of the treatment, he may not have the technical background to ensure that the equipment is operated in such a way that the desired results are achieved. This responsibility belongs to the medical radiation physicist.

The objective of this publication is to provide practical guidance for those responding within the first few hours of a radiological emergency. This includes the emergency service personnel who would initially respon at the local level and the national officials who would support this early response.

The aim of this paper is to describe concisely the 12th Congress of the International Radiation Protection Association (IRPA), which was held in Buenos Aires, Argentina, on October 19-24, 2008. Termed IRPA12, the Congress was organized by the Sociedad Argentina de Radioprotección (Argentine Radiation Protection Society), SAR, under the motto ‘strengthening radiation protection worldwide’.  The subsequent chapters will resume the proceedings of the three fields covered by the Congress’ programme.

The ain of this paper has been to indicate the relevance of the criteria A.S.A.R.A. (As Short As Reasonable Achievable) in the optimization of a fractionated radiotherapy schedule and the presentation of a Windows computer program as an easy tool in order to:

-Evaluate the Biological Equivalent Dose (BED) in a fractionated schedule.
-Make comparison between different treatments.
-Compensate a treatment when a delay has been happened.
-With a version of the Linear Quadratic model that has into account the factors of accelerated repopulation.

The biodistribution of radiopharmaceuticals may be modified by drug interaction. Unknowledge of such factor can induce a poor misvisualization of the scintigraphy images, leading to the repetition of the examination, increasing the radiation dose for the patient. We are trying to develop a model to evaluate the influence of drugs on the biodistribution of radiopharmaceuticals. Mitomycin-C is a drug that has been used as a component of many chemotherapeutic regimens. We have studied the effect of mitomycin-C on the biodistribution of the pyrophosphate labeled with technetium-99m. These results can be justified by the metabolic process and/or the therapeutical effect of mitomycin-C and this alteration on the biodistribution of the studied radiopharmaceutical was capable to increase the radiation dose in some organs.
