Abstract

BackgroundThe paper reports the electric, magnetic and electromagnetic fields emf measurements carried out in the Regina Elena National Cancer Institute NCI. Several devices, used in diagnostics and in medical cures, can represent sources of emf for the workers and for the public subjected to the treatments. The aim is to evaluate their exposition, in order to assess the compliance with the law.

MethodsThe investigations have been carried out in the departments of: intensive care, physiotherapy, MR presstherapy and in the surgical rooms. The measurements have been performed using broad band probes in the frequency ranges 5 Hz÷30 kHz and 100 kHz-3 GHz.

ResultsThe variability of the magnetic induction BμT levels is between 0,05 μT and 80 μT. The statistical distribution shows that most of the measurements are in the range 0,05
ConclusionThe measurement of the emf levels in the NCI is recommended because of the presence of the oncological patients; their long stay near the equipments and their day-long exposure represent additional risk factors for which a prudent avoidance strategy have to de adopted.
