Moving from under the lamppost : can epidemiologists and radiobiologists work together ?
BNES conference Health effects of low dose radiation. Stratford-upon-Avon, USA, 1997/05/11.
Understanding and evaluating the health effects of prolonged exposure to low radiation doses, as opposed to shorter exposure to higher doses, has still a long way to go.
Answers to these questions cannot be provided by epidemiological studies alone, and so the input of radio-biologists to help focus the work ofepidemiologists will become increasingly important in the future.
This paper discusses the current research status in this field and emphasizes the importance of interaction between radiation epidemiologists and radiation biologists.
