A worker was contaminated following a chemical explosion that splashed an HNO3 radioactive solution containing approximately 180 MBq (5 mCi) 192Ir onto the left side of his face. Initial efforts reduced the contamination at least fivefold. Removal of a patch of contaminated hair was necessary. Most of the contamination was fixed to the skin; only a small amount of contamination was absorbed.
