In the event of a nuclear disaster, in war or malfunctions in nuclear infrastructures, the first priority is to save the lives of those involved, and after that their bodies have to be decontaminated. In this article the radioactive elements with most radioactive contamination are introduced followed by a summery of the medical procedures advised for such cases. Radioactive radiation can cause direct and indirect biological damage to the body tissue. During the exposure of body tissue to ionization radiation, energy is transferred causing ionization and stimulation in tissue. This ionization can cause direct damage to sensitive cells in the body which is considered as a direct cause of radioactive radiation to the body.
