Book Description

This report considers the evidence relating to cancer risk associated with exposure to low doses of low linear energy transfer radiation, and particularly doses below current recommended limits for protection of radiation workers and the general public. The focus is on evidence regarding linearity of the dose - response relationship for all cancers considered as a group, but not necessarily individually, at low doses [the so-called linear, non-threshold (LNT) hypothesis]. It looks at the possibility of establishing a universal threshold dose below which there is no risk of radiation-related cancer. The report is organised by scientific discipline, beginning with epidemiological studies of exposed human populations.

Provides updated guidance on radiological protection from cosmic radiation in aviation, taking into account the International Commission on Radiological Protection (ICRP) system of radiological protection, the data on exposures in aviation, and experience gained worldwide in the management of exposures in aviation.

ICRP Publication 131 by ICRP ICRP Publication 131, Paperback (December 2015)

Provides a review of stem cells/progenitor cells and their responses to ionising radiation in relation to issues relevant to stochastic effects of radiation which form a major part of the ICRP system of radiological protection. This volume offers information on stem cell characteristics, maintenance and renewal.

ICRP Publication 128 by ICRP ICRP Publication 128, Paperback (July 2015)

Provides information relating to radiation dose to patients, including biokinetic models, biokinetic data, dose coefficients for organ and tissue absorbed doses. This report includes new information for 82Rb-chloride, iodide (123I, 124I, 125I, and 131I) and 123I labelled 2ss-carbomethoxy 3ss-(4-iodophenyl)-N-(3-fluoropropyl) nortropane (FPCIT).
