Description
 
In the hands of terrorists, radiological material, such as cesium-137, could be used to construct a dirty bomb. Such material -- encapsulated in steel or titanium and called a sealed source -- is commonly found in equipment used by U.S. medical facilities to treat, cancer patients and others. The Nuclear Regulatory Comm. (NRC) is responsible for regulating the commercial use of sealed sources and has relinquished its regulatory authority to 37 states, known as Agreement States. In 2008, the Nat. Nuclear Security Admin. (NNSA) established a program to provide security upgrades to U.S. hospitals and medical facilities that use radiological sources. This report determined (1) the extent to which NRCs requirements ensure the security of radiological sources at U.S. medical facilities; and (2) the status of NNSAs efforts to improve the security of sources at these facilities. Tables and figures. This is a print on demand report.
