Radioactive Background

Preventing a Dirty Bomb

Cesium-137 is an isotope used medical equipment such as blood irradiators. However, it is also the most dangerous of all radioactive isotopes. If used in a dirty bomb, the highly dispersible powder would contaminate an area for years, costing billions of dollars in evacuation, demolition and clean-up. NTI works with hospitals, industry and governments to raise awareness about this threat and the availability of safe and effective alternative technologies to cesium-137 blood irradiators.
