Age and sex specific population doses (SED (somatic effective dose equivalent) and GSD (genetically significant dose equivalent)) due to nuclear medicine procedures in The Netherlands.

Abstract

Age- and sex-specific data were obtained concerning nuclear medicine procedures performed in The Netherlands in 1984. The average annual per capita procedure frequency amounted to 0.011. Using recent organ dose data for a large number of common radiopharmaceuticals (ICRP, Publ. 52/53, 1987) the somatic effective dose equivalent (SED) and the genetically… (More)
