A European intercomparison of methods used for the assessment of intakes of internally deposited radionuclides
An interlaboratory comparison for the assessment of intakes of 137Cs, 90Sr, 32P, and various actinides is described. Nine laboratories participated, using five actual cases. The agreement between laboratories was similar to a previous UK intercomparison. Most cases showed a standard deviation on the mean for intakes of better than 30 % with standard deviations on the doses of better than 40 % of the mean. The differences arose mainly from variations in the ICRP models used and in the interpretation and statistical treatment of the data provided.
