Biokinetics and Dosimetry of Internal Contamination ¿ BIODOS, Executive Summary of Final Report

Project ID: FIGD-CT-2000-00053
Funded under: FP5-EAECTP C

Abstract

Assessments of doses and risks to workers and to the public exposed to radionuclides require biokinetic models which describe the behaviour of the radionuclides from their entry into the body until their final elimination and dosimetric models for calculating doses within tissues. Biokinetic models describing the absorption of radionuclides after ingestion or inhalation and subsequent systemic behaviour, published by the International Commission on Radiological Protection (ICRP), are widely used in dose calculations but are subject to revision as knowledge improves.
