ICRP Publication 118 : ICRP Statement on Tissue Reactions and Early and Late Effects of Radiation in Normal Tissues and Organs - Threshold Doses for Tissue Reactions in a Radiation Protection Context Paperback / softback
Part of the Annals of the ICRP series
This report provides a review of early and late effects of radiation in normal tissues and organs with respect to radiation protection.
It was instigated following a recommendation in ICRP Publication 103 (2007), and it provides updated estimates of 'practical' threshold doses for tissue injury defined at the level of 1% incidence.
Estimates are given for morbidity and mortality endpoints in all organ systems following acute, fractionated, or chronic exposure.
The organ systems comprise the haematopoietic, immune, reproductive, circulatory, respiratory, musculoskeletal, endocrine, and nervous systems; the digestive and urinary tracts; the skin; and the eye.
