Abstract:Brazil, a large country, with more than 120 000 workers under individual monitoring for ionising radiation, developed, more than 20 y ago, a centralised data bank for external occupational dose. This old database, however, presented some problems and does not satisfy any more Brazilian present needs, not allowing dose analysis reports, for example. Therefore, a new system that reduces manual tasks, provides system communication support, manages reports and improves data storage management is being developed. This paper describes this new web-based information system, named Brazilian External Occupational Dose Management database systemGDOSE.
