Following a radiological accident on 11 March 2006 in an industrial irradiation facility involving one victim, a physical dosimetry was reconstructed using on site measurements and numerical simulations in order to estimate as accurately as possible and as quickly as possible the dose received and its distribution throughout the organism so that doctors may fine tune their diagnosis and prescribe the most suitable treatment. The data compiled from the experimental reconstruction resulted in a first estimation of the distribution of the dose in the victim's organism. The numerical simulations indicated a dose gradient corresponding to a factor of 2 in anteroposterior and between the pelvis and the skull.
