International Workshop on Exposure Metrics and Dosimetry for EMF Epidemiology. Chilton, GBR, 1998/09/07.
The measurement of radiofrequency (RF) exposure is important to the quality of epidemiological studies of the possible association of RF exposure with disease.
The extent and type of exposure measurement in past epidemiological studies of RF, and the features of measurement that would be desirable for better studies in the future are summarised.
Measurement characteristics that are discussed include quantification of radiation frequency and of intensity and timing of exposures, measurement (or good estimation) of exposures for individuals rather than only for groups, quality of measurement, and measurement of RF exposures experienced outside the study setting.
Integration of exposure measurement into the design of epidemiological studies is needed for better assessments of possible RF effects.
