Title The radon emanating fraction in dial painters
Bibliographic information July 1972, Vol.23, No.1, p.109-111. 8 ref.
Abstract A summary presentation of the results of measurements carried out on 16 dial painters exposed for periods of 2 to 13 years to determine the proportion of radon exhaled in relation to whole-body activity (expressed as 226Ra). The mean value obtained for this ratio was 0.681.
