Risk coefficients representing the lifetime radiation-induced cancer mortality (or incidence) attributable to an exposure to ionizing radiation, have been published by major international scientific committees. The calculations involve observations in an exposed population and choices of a standard population (for risk transportation), of suitable numerical models, and of computational techniques. The present lack of a firm convention for these choices makes it difficult to inter-compare risk… CONTINUE READING
