Since issuing its 1990 Recommendations as ICRP Publication 60 (ICRP 1991b), the Commission has reviewed these Recommendations regularly and, from time to time, has issued supplementary reports in the Annals of the ICRP. The extent of these supplementary reports has indicated the need for the consolidation and rationalisation presented here. New scientific data have also been published since Publication 60, and while the biological and physical assumptions and concepts remain robust, some… 

Topics from this paper

Duty of candour and the definition of moderate harm for radiation overexposure and exposures much greater than intended in diagnostic radiology.
TLDR
Some pragmatic proposals for numerical patient dose thresholds that could be taken as broadly corresponding to the definition of moderate harm required to trigger the duty of candour are made.
Computed tomography and patient risk: Facts, perceptions and uncertainties
TLDR
New image reconstruction techniques that reduce radiation dose have been developed in recent years with promising results and use iterative reconstruction algorithms to attain diagnostic quality images with reduced image noise at lower radiation doses.
Solid cancer risk dependence on the Pasquill–Gifford atmospheric stability classes in a radiological event
TLDR
This work suggests that the relative cancer risk and atmospheric stability classes are linked by differences in the TEDE, which may support triage, because it adds additional information on the potentially affected population at the early stages of an emergency response.
Radiological evaluation of by-products used in construction and alternative applications; Part I. Preparation of a natural radioactivity database
Abstract To get an insight into the radiological features of potentially reusable by-products in the construction industry a review of the reported scientific data is necessary. This study is based
The downfall of the linear non-threshold model
TLDR
Considering the given evidences, a discussion between the involved scientific societies and the regulatory commissions is required in order to to reach aredefiniton of the radiation protection basis, as it would be specially crucial in the medical field.
Adverse Outcome Pathway: A Path towards better Data Consolidation and Global Co-ordination of Radiation Research.
TLDR
The Rad/Chem AOP joint topical group was formed on June 1, 2021 and will specifically engage, promote, and implement the use of the AOP framework to organize and evaluate mechanistic knowledge relevant to the protection of human and ecosystem health from radiation.
A REVIEW OF THE FUNDAMENTAL PRINCIPLES OF RADIATION PROTECTION WHEN APPLIED TO THE PATIENT IN DIAGNOSTIC RADIOLOGY
  • B. Moores
  • Medicine
    Radiation protection dosimetry
  • 2017
TLDR
A review of the role and relevance of the principles of radiation protection of the patient in diagnostic radiology as specified by ICRP has been undertaken and the importance of defined diagnostic outcomes in any effective radiation protection strategy is highlighted.
Genome-based, mechanism-driven computational modeling of risks of ionizing radiation: The next frontier in genetic risk estimation?
TLDR
It is argued that the time is ripe to embark on a human genome-based, mechanism-driven, computational modeling of genetic risks of ionizing radiation, and a provisional framework for catalyzing research in the field in the 21st century is presented.
Quality assurance for the use of computational methods in dosimetry: activities of EURADOS Working Group 6 ‘Computational Dosimetry’
  • H. Rabus, J. Gómez-Ros, +12 authors P. Ferrari
  • Physics, Medicine
    Journal of radiological protection : official journal of the Society for Radiological Protection
  • 2021
TLDR
The future strategy of WG 6 also includes an extension of the scope toward experimental benchmark activities and evaluation of cross-sections and algorithms, with the vision of establishing a gold standard for Monte Carlo methods used in medical and radiobiological applications.
The NORM4Building database, a tool for radiological assessment when using by-products in building materials
TLDR
Radiological aspects on by-products that can find application in concrete are discussed based on the database using a semi-automated datamining approach.

A framework for assessing the impact of ionising radiation on non-human species
TLDR
The present report suggests a framework, based on scientific and ethical-philosophical principles, by which a policy for the protection of non-human species could be achieved, to fill a conceptual gap in radiological protection.
The optimisation of radiological protection: Broadening the process
  • Icrp
  • Computer Science, Medicine
    Annals of the ICRP
  • 2006
TLDR
The way in which the optimisation process should be implemented is now viewed more broadly to reflect the increasing role of individual equity, safety culture, and stakeholder involvement in the authors' modern societies.
