  1. Radiogenic cancer risk attributes for the Indian population based on the revised ICRP risk coefficients.

    Article - En anglais

    Radiogenic cancer risk attributes are computed for the Indian population using the best available demographic data and the ICRP 60 primary risk coefficients.

    Assuming a DDREF value of 2, the coefficient of risk for acute exposure, averaged over all ages and both sexes turns out to be about 3.0% Sv-1.

    This is 60% of the ICRP 60 value for the general public and is very close to the corresponding Chinese value.

    For chronic exposures, the sex averaged « lifetime probability of attributable death » and several other risk attributes are about half of those indicated in ICRP 60.

    Interestingly, the « loss of lifetime due to radiogenic cancer death » appears to be only marginally reduced from the ICRP 60 value.
