Particle deposition in human and canine tracheobronchial casts: a determinant of radon dose to the critical cells of the respiratory tract.

Abstract

The radiation dose to the sensitive cells of the bronchial epithelium from inhaled short-lived radon progeny depends critically on the efficiency with which the particles are deposited on the airway surfaces. Measurements of deposition for particles 50, 100, 180, and 400 nm in diameter have been carried out along three single pathways in full hollow airway… (More)
