Availability Notice


Inhalation dose commitment factors are presented for selected radionuclides for exposure of individuals in four age groups: infant, child, teen and adult. Radionuclides considered are 35S, 36Cl, 45Ca, 67Ga, 75Se, 85Sr, 109Cd, 113Sn, 125I, 133Ba, 170Tm, 169Yb, 182Ta, 192Ir, 198Au, 201Tl, 204Tl, and 236Pu. The calculational method is based on the human metabolic model of ICRP as defined in Publication 2 (ICRP 1959) and as used in previous age-specific dose factor calculations by Hoenes and Soldat (1977). Dose commitment factors are presented for the following organs of reference: total body, bone, liver, kidney, thyroid, lung and lower large intestine.
