Abstract
The issue of stochastic effects of radiation exposure (mostly leukemia and cancer), and early detection of malignant tumors, as a key aspect of the problem, is of crucial importance to the population chronically exposed due to the activities of the Mayak Production Association in the Urals region (Russia). Given the large number of exposed population, screening is considered to be the most expedient method to organize medical observation of exposed persons. As was shown by the results of medical examinations conducted for 1 391 residents of the Techa riverside villages, laser correlation spectrometry (LCS) of blood plasma has proved to be a highly effective screening method for early (pre-clinical) detection of malignant neoplasms and pre-cancerous conditions. It was established that LC- spectra of blood plasma in persons with cancer and pre- cancer can easily be differentiated from non-cancer conditions. Of particular diagnostic significance is the high-frequency range of the spectrum. The development of a diagnostic algorithm has allowed to carry out a computer- based classification of blood plasma LC spectra as a component of exposed population health monitoring system.
