  1. Exposure limits and assessment of intake for inhaled soluble uranium compounds.

    Article, Communication - En anglais

    Actinides-97. Baden-Baden, DEU, 1997/09/21.

    This paper describes the impact of renal threshold concentrations for uranium ; the latest biokinetic models recommended by the International Commission on Radiological Protection ; and the pattern of exposure on intake limits and their assessment.

    It is concluded that the current daily limit on intake of 2 mg is acceptable, but considerable uncertainties exist in assessment from urine analysis.

    It is suggested that the role of biochemical indicators of exposure should be pursued.
