What would we learn if Po-210 was detected in urine? I can't find any ICRP
relationships between urine and intakes.

Good morning-

The Health Protection Agency in England has updates regarding the Po-210


The National Health Service in England posted this article apparently
during the early phase of the Po-210 incident.


I was wondering, does anyone know what activity was detected in Mr.
Litvinenko's urine?
