I have been working with a 2.8 (decayed over summer) micro curie cobalt-57 source testing a gamma camera. I would like to know if this made my risk for getting cancer higher ? My employers say l don't need to be worried.
And this is right. While I would not recommend it, even eating that source (worst thing you can do) would not give a radiation level significant above the natural irradiation.My employers say l don't need to be worried.
