Medical applications of lasers in dermatology, cardiology, ophthalmology, and dentistry. Conference. Stockholm, SWE, 1998/09/11.
A survey was carried out on sunbeds in the city of Perth, Scotland (56N) and the surrounding area.
UV radiation measurements were carried out using a calibrated double-grating spectroradiometer in 38 of the total 41 tanning units in the area.
Data were analysed using the SCUP-h action spectrum which is an estimate of the sensitivity of human skin to cancer induction from UV radiation of different wavelengths.
Results showed that high power stand-up tanning units carry approximately the same cancer risk, minute for minute, as sunbathing in Southern Europe in summer.
