Overexposure of a radiographer

A radiographer went in a bunker where industrial radiography operations were made. The ionising source was a X-ray machine (225kV - 4mA). The radiographer thought that the irradiation was finished but this was not the case and he was exposed.

According to the biological dosimetry, the radiographer received a whole body dose below 200mSv.

At the moment, the licencee is making a reconstitution of the incident to better determine the dose
