AB  - Most studies focused on thoron have shown that indoor thoron originates mainly from building materials and that thoron concentrations exponentially decrease with a distance from a wall surface. On the contrary, due to longer half-lives of thoron progenies, 212 Pb and 212 Bi, which are mainly responsible for the bronchial dose, it is expected that their spatial distribution is homogeneous. Therefore, direct measurements of thoron progeny concentrations or direct thoron measurement and determination of thoron equilibrium factor are necessary for accurate dose assessment. In this paper, we have optimized and validated a reliable and inexpensive method for direct measurement of thoron progenies concentrations based on an air filtration followed by gamma spectrometry measurements. With simultaneous measurements of indoor thoron by the RAD7 active device, the equilibrium factor for thoron in 15 different investigated dwellings was estimated. Obtained results for the equilibrium equivalent thoron concentrations in the range from 0.277 Bq/m 3 to 11.34 Bq/m 3 and thoron equilibrium factor in the range from 0.0047 to 0.098 with arithmetic mean value of 0.034 are in good agreement with already published results. © 2019 Elsevier Ltd

AB  - Radon is natural radioactive gas. It is colourless, tasteless, odourless and therefore it cannot be detected by human senses, but should be measured. It was discovered at the beginning of XX century. At that time, high radon concentrations were measured in the Bohemian silver mines. However it took four decades before a connection between high radon concentration and lung cancer was assumed and one decade more to link radon progeny as a possible cause of lung cancer. Numerous epidemiological studies have shown that radon with its progeny represents second cause of lung cancer after smoking. The importance of investigation of radon and its progeny was acknowledged at the very beginning of Symposiums of Yugoslav society of radiation protection. Thus, already at the first Symposium, held in 1963, there were already several papers published regarding radon concentration measurements in mines and spas. In the first few proceeding of the Symposium the main contribution was from Serbian Institute of Occupational Health. In this publication, an overview of research on radon, published in previous 29 Proceedings of symposiums of Radiation Protection Society, was given. Evolution of actuality of different radon topics was discussed and overview of used measurement techniques was given. Finally, it was estimated in which directions development of radon topics might go.

AB  - Nedavne  studije  koje  se  bave  problemom  torona  pokazuju  da  toron  u  vazduhu zatvorenih prostorija dominantno potiče od upotrebljenih građevinskih materijala za izradu i pokrivanje zidova i podova i da koncentracija torona eksponencijalno opada sa rastojanjem od površine zidova. Međutim, usled dužeg perioda poluraspada, toronovi potomci 212Pb i 212Bi imaju homogenu prostornu distribuciju i mogu značajno doprineti bronhijalnoj dozi. U ovom radu je razvijena metoda direktnog određivanja koncentracije toronovih potomaka u vazduhu koja se zasniva na gama-spektrometrijskim merenjima filter papira uz detaljnu analizu i optimizaciju vremena usisavanja, hlađenja i merenja na HPGe detektorskim sistemima. Metoda je validovana kroz uporedna merenja sa aktivnim monitorom koji se najčešće koristi za merenje ravnotežne ekvivalentne koncentracije torona. Ovakav način ispitivanja toronske ravnoteže će doprineti preciznom određivanju doze koju primi stanovništvo od inhalacije torona i potomaka, naročito zbog poznate problematike mogućnosti merenja torona kao kratkoživećeg radionuklida. Rezultati preliminarnog istraživanja problema torona u petnaest odabranih kuća pokazuju da su procenjene doze od udisanja torona uporedive sa dozama koje stanovništvo primi od udisanja radona i da toron mora biti obuhvaćen u budućim monitorinzima radona.

AB  - Monitoring of environmental samples, drinking and surface waters, is continuously
carried out, demanding development of methods that are both reliable and accurate on
one side, but as simple and fast as possible, on the other. Screening tests such as gross
alpha/beta activity measurements in water samples are one liquid scintillation counting
(LSC) technique widely used as an efficient tool for radiological assesment and
estimation whether water sample needs further analysis or not. In this paper,
establishment of rapid gross alpha/beta screening technique in waters has been
presented, which assumes modification of conventional ASTM D 7283-06 method, since
samples were directly mixed with liquid scintillation cocktail, without any sample
pretreatment. Method’s optimization involved sample-to-cocktail ratio determination
based on the achieved detection limit and sample’s quench level. Optimal value of Pulse
Shape Analysis (PSA) discriminator that considerably improves performance of LSC
technique through alpha/beta spectra separation during radiological quality
measurements of drinking waters has also been investigated. Results of calibration
experiments and method’s validity measurements on spiked samples with 241Am and
90Sr/90Y aqueous standards are presented. Achieved detection limits for 300 minutes
of counting are MDAα=0.294(11) Bq l-1 and MDAβ=0.405(5) Bq l-1, in alpha and beta
window, respectively. Direct alpha/beta method provides deviations up to 40% from
reference values, but it offers advantages over conventional alpha/beta measurements,
it is ultra fast, simple and inexpensive test for efficient screening of water samples.
AB  - Rutinski monitoring pijaćih i površinskih voda sprovodi se kontinuirano i nameće
potrebu za razvojem metoda koje su, s jedne strane, pouzdane i tačne, ali istovremeno,
jednostavne i brze. Screening testovi radi procene ukupne alfa/beta aktivnosti u
uzorcima voda, jedna su od često primenjenih tehnika tečne scintilacione
spektroskopije, kojima se efikasno može utvrditi da li uzorak zahteva dalju radiološku

abstract = "Monitoring of environmental samples, drinking and surface waters, is continuously
carried out, demanding development of methods that are both reliable and accurate on
one side, but as simple and fast as possible, on the other. Screening tests such as gross
alpha/beta activity measurements in water samples are one liquid scintillation counting
(LSC) technique widely used as an efficient tool for radiological assesment and
estimation whether water sample needs further analysis or not. In this paper,
establishment of rapid gross alpha/beta screening technique in waters has been
presented, which assumes modification of conventional ASTM D 7283-06 method, since
samples were directly mixed with liquid scintillation cocktail, without any sample
pretreatment. Method’s optimization involved sample-to-cocktail ratio determination
based on the achieved detection limit and sample’s quench level. Optimal value of Pulse
Shape Analysis (PSA) discriminator that considerably improves performance of LSC
technique through alpha/beta spectra separation during radiological quality
measurements of drinking waters has also been investigated. Results of calibration
experiments and method’s validity measurements on spiked samples with 241Am and
90Sr/90Y aqueous standards are presented. Achieved detection limits for 300 minutes
of counting are MDAα=0.294(11) Bq l-1 and MDAβ=0.405(5) Bq l-1, in alpha and beta
window, respectively. Direct alpha/beta method provides deviations up to 40% from
reference values, but it offers advantages over conventional alpha/beta measurements,
it is ultra fast, simple and inexpensive test for efficient screening of water samples., Rutinski monitoring pijaćih i površinskih voda sprovodi se kontinuirano i nameće
potrebu za razvojem metoda koje su, s jedne strane, pouzdane i tačne, ali istovremeno,
jednostavne i brze. Screening testovi radi procene ukupne alfa/beta aktivnosti u
uzorcima voda, jedna su od često primenjenih tehnika tečne scintilacione
spektroskopije, kojima se efikasno može utvrditi da li uzorak zahteva dalju radiološku
analizu ili ne. U radu je predstavljena optimizacija brze direktne metode za ispitivanje

AB  - Radon 222Rn is formed as a product of decomposition of 226Ra, it is radioactive isotope
that is soluble in water and represents one of the most common natural sources of
radiation. Monitoring of 222Rn in drinking water is important to continuously implement
due to hydrogeological studies and also radiological risk assessment. There are
different methods of measuring radon in water. Alpha spectrometric methods are the

technique of measuring 222Rn in water samples. The method itself is carried out by
mixing water samples with an organic scintillation cocktail. The cocktail causes the
radon diffusion from the aqueous solution to the organic phase because radon has a
higher affinity for the organic phase, thus preventing the emission of radon from the
water. In addition to the before mentioned methods, a gamma spectrometric method
that uses the secular radioactive equilibrium of radon and its daughter products gave us
satisfactory results. In this paper, the advantages and disadvantages of four different
methods of measuring radon in water will be shown: two LSC methods (monophase and
two-phase), RAD7 and gamma spectrometric method. All three methods have very low
minimal detectable activity (MDA) values, lower than 1 Bq l-1. In addition to the
different measurement techniques, a comparison of two methods for sampling of water
will be presented also on few examples.

AB  - The most dominant source of indoor radon is the underlying soil, so the enhanced levels
of radon are usually expected in mountain regions and geology units with high radium
and uranium content in surface soils. Laboratory for radioactivity and dose
measurement, Faculty of Sciences, University of Novi Sad has rich databases of natural
radionuclides concentrations in Vojvodina soil and also of indoor radon concentrations
for the region of Vojvodina, Northern Province of Serbia. In this paper, we present the
results of correlative and multivariate analysis of these results and geochemical
characteristics of soil in order to estimate the geogenic radon potential. The correlative
and multivariate analysis were done using Toolkit for Multivariate Analysis software
package TMVA package, which uses several comparable multivariate methods for our
analysis. The evaluation ranking results based on the best signal efficiency and purity,
show that the Boosted Decision Trees (BDT) and Multi Layer Preceptor (MLP), based
on Artificial Neural Network (ANN), are multivariate methods which give the best
results in the analysis. The BDTG multivariate method shows that variables with the
highest importance are radio-nuclides activity on 30 cm depth. Moreover, the
multivariate regression methods give a good approximation of radon activity using full
set of input variables

AB  - In this paper, we performed, for the first time, detailed study of Vojvodina’s soil in
order to explore possible correlations of soil geochemical characteristics and
radionuclide activity concentrations. The aim of this study is to analyze the content of
natural radioisotopes 238U, 226Ra, 232Th and 40K, as well as artificial radioisotope 137Cs
in all soil types originated from the same parent material – loess. The sampling
locations were selected so that they are proportionately represented all
geomorphological units: two mountains, four loess plateaus, three loess terraces, four
alluvial plains, two sandstone terrains. The process of genesis of soil and cultivation
mode plays a dominant role on the characteristics of the soil. However intensive
agricultural production and the use of high mineral fertilizers have caused that the
same type of soil contains different concentrations of available phosphorus and
radionuclides. Comparison of activity concentrations between different types of soil
confirmed that the presence of clay mostly contributes to radionuclides content in the
soil. The main conclusion is that measured maximal activity concentrations for 238U (87
Bq/kg), 226Ra (44.7 Bq/kg), 232Th (55.5 Bq/kg) and 137Cs (29 Bq/kg) at 30 cm depth

AB  - We present an improved statistical method for the calculation of mean lifetime of nuclei in a decay chain with an uncertain relation between mother and daughter nuclei. The method is based on the formation of time distribution of intervals between mother and daughter nuclei, without trying to set the exact mother-daughter nuclei relationship. If there is a coincidence of mother and daughter nuclei decays, the sum of these distributions has flat term on which an exponential term is superimposed. Parameters of this exponential function allow lifetime of daughter nucleus to be extracted. The method is tested on Monte Carlo simulation data.

AB  - Dependence of the lead-210 activity concentration in surface air on meteorological variables and teleconnection indices is investigated using multivariate analysis, which gives the Boosted Decision Trees method as the most suitable for variable analysis. A mapped functional behaviour of the lead-210 activity concentration is further obtained, and used to test predictability of lead-210 in surface air. The results show an agreement between the predicted and measured values. The temporal evolution of the measured activities is satisfactorily matched by the prediction. The largest qualitative differences are obtained for winter months.

A mapped functional behaviour of the lead-210 activity concentration is further obtained, and used to test predictability of lead-210 in surface air. The results show an agreement between the predicted and measured values. The temporal evolution of the measured activities is satisfactorily matched by the prediction. The largest qualitative differences are obtained for winter months.",

AB  - The purpose of this work is to evaluate the radiation exposure to nuclear medicine (NM) staff in the two positron emission tomography-computed tomography centres in Serbia and to investigate the possibilities for dose reduction. Dose levels in terms of H-p(10) for whole body and H-p(0.07) for hands of NM staff were assessed using thermoluminescence and electronic personal dosemeters. The assessed doses per procedure in terms of H-p(10) were 4.2-7 and 5-6 mu Sv, in two centres, respectively, whereas the extremity doses in terms of H-p(0.07) in one of the centres was 34-126 mu Sv procedure(-1). The whole-body doses per unit activity were 17-19 and 21-26 mu Sv GBq(-1) in two centres, respectively, and the normalised finger dose in one centre was 170-680 mu Sv GBq(-1). The maximal estimated annual whole-body doses in two centres were 3.4 and 2.0 mSv, while the corresponding extremity dose in the later one was 45 mSv. Improvements as introduction of automatic dispensing system and injection and optimisation of working practice resulted in dose reduction ranging from 12 up to 67%.

AB  - Determination of full energy peak efficiency is one of the most important tasks that have to be performed before gamma spectrometry of environmental samples. Many methods, including measurement of specific reference materials, Monte Carlo simulations, efficiency transfer and semi empirical calculations, were developed in order to complete this task. Monte Carlo simulation, based on GEANT4 simulation package and EFFTRAN efficiency transfer software are applied for the efficiency calibration of three detectors, readily used in the Environment and Radiation Protection Laboratory of Institute for Nuclear Sciences Vinca, for measurement of environmental samples. Efficiencies were calculated for water, soil and aerosol samples. The aim of this paper is to perform efficiency calculations for HPGe detectors using both GEANT4 simulation and EFFTRAN efficiency transfer software and to compare obtained results with the experimental results. This comparison should show how the two methods agree with experimentally obtained efficiencies of our measurement system and in which part of the spectrum do the discrepancies appear. The detailed knowledge of accuracy and precision of both methods should enable us to choose an appropriate method for each situation that is presented in our and other laboratories on a daily basis.

AB  - The main aim of this paper was to compare different methods of preparing water samples for tritium analysis by ultra-low-level background liquid scintillation counter, Quantulus 1220. Three methods of sample preparation for low-level tritium measurement have been implemented in the Nuclear Physics Laboratory in Novi Sad: electrolytic enrichment, direct method without electrolytic enrichment and sample Oxidizer 307 method. The examined fresh water samples were rainfall collected during 6 months and water from a stream in the Vinca nuclear research center collected over 3 months. The obtained results using these three methods showed satisfying agreement. The appropriate measuring time by LSC for each sample prepared according to different methods has been determined.
