  1. Radiation risk estimation.

    Article, Congrès - En anglais

    International Society for Environmental Epidemiology ISEE. Annual meeting. Long Island NY (USA), 1989/09/13.

    Estimation of the risk of cancer following exposure to ionizing radiation remains largely empirical, and the models used to adduce risk incorporate few, if any, of the advances in molecular biology of the past decade or so.

    These facts compromise the estimation of risk where the epidemiological data are weakest, namely, at low doses and dose rates.

    Without a better understanding of the molecular and cellular events ionizing radiation initiates or promotes, it seems unlikely that this situation will improve.
