ICRP and EURADOS, in cooperation with IRSN, will be hosting a joint training course on the Theory and Practical Application of Codes for the Determination of Dose After Internal Contamination from 14-18 October 2024 in Fontenay-aux-Roses, France.

The objective of this training course is to inform participants and provide practical training on calculation of dose after internal contamination, using codes for implementing ICRP models. Courses will provide general information on biokinetic models, radiation decay data and S-coefficients, voxel and mesh phantoms, Monte Carlo calculation of specific absorbed fractions (SAFs), calculation of dose coefficients and limitations of the models. Practical sessions will allow the use of different software for solving biokinetic models and for calculating S-factor and dose coefficients. The courses will be given by high-level professionals, currently involved in the development of calculation codes in dosimetry, biokinetic models and the production of ICRP dose coefficients.


This training is aimed at early career researchers interested in biokinetic modeling.
Practical experience in coding (preferably in R language) would be welcome to better benefit from the lessons given.


Courses will include lectures providing overview of topics, demonstrations of examples, guiding participants through the calculations, and practicals with simple exercises for part of the workflow. At the end of the week participants are expected to have a good understanding of the ICRP concept of internal dosimetry using biokinetic and dosimetric models, to know the type and the sources of data required for the calculation of dose coefficients, to have an understanding of the workflow for calculation of dose coefficients, and to be aware of the pitfalls in these calculations.
