IMBA training courses
From time to time, we run training courses at a location near you.
If you are interested in running such a course, then please contact us to discuss your needs.
Typical structure of an IMBA course
Exercises on Internal Dosimetry:
1. Simple Dose Calculations: how to calculate ingestion and inhalation dose coefficients; how to create a report using IMBA; tips to speed up calculations.
2. Help Facilities in IMBA Prof Plus: tour of full online documentation; quick start; help mode; where to get more information; how to obtain the latest versions; user preferences; parameter files; built in checking facilities
3. More Dose Calculations: calculations with IMBA for ingestion of Pu-239, inhalation of a vapour, inhalation of simple and complex aerosols, doses from a wound
4. Forward Bioassay Calculations: simple bioassay calculations; introduction of Table and Graph tools; bioassay calculations for inhalation of iodine vapour
5. Estimating Intakes: estimating intakes from single and multiple measurements; estimating intakes from different data types (for example urine and whole body) simultaneously
6. Multiple Intake Regimes: calculating doses and bioassay quantities for multiple intake regimes; estimating multiple intakes from measurement data; using dates in IMBA
7. Theoretical Case Studies: analysis of a case involving the inhalation of a caesium aerosol; analysis of a case involving the inhalation of a plutonium aerosol
8. Real Case Studies: five real life exposure cases are analysed; acute intake of HTO; acute inhalation of fission products; acute inhalation of cobalt; acute inhalation iodine; an intake of enriched uranium
