This chapter is devoted to exposure of the embryo and the foetus due to ingestion of natural radionuclides. Using the dose coefficients of ICRP Recommendation 88, an assessment is made of the activities of the main natural radionuclides and depleted uranium ingested acutely or chronically by the mother or future mother at different stages of pregnancy and before conception that give an Author: S. Risica, C. Nuccetelli. Dec 21,  · Prenatal radiation exposure: The exposure of an unborn baby to radiation. Radiation exposure of the fetus can occur when the mother's abdomen is exposed to radiation from outside her body as, for example, by diagnostic X-rays.A pregnant woman may also be exposed to radiation by swallowing or breathing in radioactive materials. From the mother, radioactive materials may pass .

In addition, radioactive substances that may concentrate in the. If care for radioactive patients is routine, please contact the Radiation Safety Office for evaluation of potential dose. In general, radiation doses to the public and caregivers from diagnostic radiopharmaceuticals are typically quite low. While the radiation emitted from the patient can be detected with radiation instruments, detectability.
