MAIN RESEARCH PROJECTS CONDUCTED

• 2001-

A) Radiation protection in Medicine

> Covering the
- follow up of the exposure from diagnostic and interventional radiology, nuclear medicine, and radiotherapy.
- investigation of the dose distribution among the Swiss population.
- establishment and implementation of diagnostic reference levels (DRL) in Switzerland.

> Project funded by the Swiss Federal Office of Public Health, with some contribution from the University Institute of Applied Radiation Physics in Lausanne.

> Collaboration with the European Working Group on the "Population Exposure from Medical X-ray Imaging", and with the United Nations Scientific Committee on the Effects of Atomic Radiation (UNSCEAR).

B) Radiation protection in nuclear facilities and around particle accelerators

> Radiation field characterization, environmental monitoring and individual dosimetry inside and at the vicinity of nuclear power plants, nuclear fuel storage facilities, and around high energy particle accelerators in Switzerland.

> Project funded by the Swiss Federal Office of Public Health, and by the Swiss Federal Nuclear Safety Inspectorate, a Division of the and the Swiss fereral Office of Energy.

• 1997-2001: Radiation protection in medicine

> Nation-wide survey of the exposure by diagnostic and interventional radiology in Switzerland

> Project funded by the Swiss Federal Office of Public Health, with some contribution from the University Institute of Applied Radiation Physics in Lausanne.

• 1993-1996: Radiation protection around high energy accelerators

> Spectrometric and dosimetric characterisation of the neutron fields around the high energy accelerators at the European Laboratory for Particle Physics (CERN) and the Paul Scherrer Institut (PSI).

> Project funded by the Swiss Federal Nuclear Safety Inspectorate, a Division of the Swiss fereral Office of Energy, with some contribution from CERN and the European Radiation Dosimetry Group.

• 1988-1992: Radiation protection in nuclear power plants

> Spectrometric and dosimetric characterisation of the neutron and gamma fields encoutered in the Swiss and some other European power plants.

> Project funded by the Swiss Federal Nuclear Safety Inspectorate, a Division of the Swiss fereral Office of Energy, with some contribution from the European Radiation Dosimetry Group.
