NCRP report; no.171

RA1231

The problem the report addresses is that estimates of the association between ionizing radiation and adverse health effects can be no more reliable than the quality of exposure data they are based on, and measured or estimated doses from such exposure are subject to uncertainties. The report appraises the major aspects of uncertainty in relating absorbed doses in specific organs and tissues to the risk of disease, including cancer, non-cancer, and heritable effects. It builds on the analysis in earlier reports on testing external and internal doses. There is no index.
