Title Computer-aided methods for evaluating cancer risk in miners due to radiation exposure
Bibliographic information 1993, Vol.6, No.4, p.369-381. 13 ref.
Abstract Methods for the assessment of miners' exposure to naturally occurring radon and radon daughters in mine air are reviewed along with the impact of methodology on assessment of radiation hazard. Principles of computer-aided methods for the interpretation of dosimetry data to determine the expected risk of cancer are presented and results for workers in coal mines, metal ore mines and chemical raw material mines in Poland are given.
