    Jun 24,  · Part of the Environmental Pollution book series (EPOL, volume 27) Estimating radiogenic cancer risks. EPA R, USEPA, Washington, DC. Google Scholar. USEPA. (d). Asante-Duah K. () Exposure Assessment: Analysis of Human Intake of Chemicals. In: Public Health Risk Assessment for Human Exposure to Chemicals. Environmental Cited by: 1. Apr 28,  · Radiogenic second cancer is a common late effect in long term cancer survivors. Currently there are few methods or tools available to visually evaluate the spatial distribution of risks of radiogenic late effects in the human body. We developed a risk visualization method and demonstrated it for radiogenic second cancers in tissues and organs of one patient treated with photon volumetric Cited by: 5.

    The biological effects of high charge and energy (HZE) particle exposures are of interest in space radiation protection of astronauts and cosmonauts, and estimating secondary cancer risks for patients undergoing Hadron therapy for primary cancers. In addition, the choice of risk transfer model remains a major uncertainty in estimating radiogenic lung cancer risks for the US population. Further research is required to elucidate and refine knowledge on the potential confounding effects of tobacco use on space radiation cancer risk estimates.

    Radon Leaders Saving Lives. (ORIA), announced the availability of the updated EPA Radiogenic Cancer Risk Models and Projections for the U.S. Population (EPA R, April ), also known as the Blue Book. Mike noted that, "This update revises EPA's methodology for estimating cancer risks from radiation exposure and contains. Estimating risk is a complicated task, and discussing it objectively is not easy either. There are numerous factors that go into estimating risk, and there have been arguments about the metric involved - cancer deaths, instead of estimating risks for non-fatal insults - like blood disease or osteoperosis.

It replaces the EPA report, Estimating Radiogenic Cancer Risks, often referred to as the ―Blue Book.‖ Inthe Agency applied the Blue Book.

InEPA published a report, referred to as the “Blue Book,” which lays out EPA’s current methodology for quantitatively estimating radiogenic cancer risks. A follow-on report made minor adjustments to the previous estimates and presented a partial analysis of the uncertainties in the numerical estimates.

Absolute radiogenic risks of radiation-induced lung cancer are similar for both sexes although baseline lung cancer risks are much higher for males than they are for females.

Consequently, the excess relative risk for irradiated females is higher than for males. Summary.
