Problems concerning dose assessments in epidemiology of high background radiation areas of Yangjiang, China.
Retrospective Dosimetry : Physical and Biological Aspects. International Workshop. Tianjin, CHN, 1997/10/14.
The purpose of this study on radiation levels and dose assessments in the epidemiology of a high background radiation area (HBRA) and the control area (CA) is to respond to the needs of epidemiology in these areas, where the inhabitants are continuously exposed to low dose, low dose rate ionising radiation.
A brief description is given of how the research group evaluated the feasibility of the investigation by analysing the population size and the radiation levels, how simple reliable methods were used to get the individual annual dose for every cohort member, and how the cohort members were classified into various dose groups for dose-effect relationship analysis.
Finally, the use of dose group classification for cancer mortality studies is described.
