  1. A graphical method of estimating fatal radiation-induced cancers using the beir V method.

    Article - En anglais

    A method is presented that permits health physicists to estimate the risks of radiation-induced cancers in populations of males or females exposed to whole-body external irradiation at any age.

    Graphics are presented that may be used for either acute or chronic exposures.

    There is good agreement for chronic exposures when the cancer estimates determined here are compared with those prescribed in BEIR V. There are differences between the two when considering some acute exposures.

    In such circumstances, the method given here generally gives conservative results.
