INTERNATIONAL COMMISSION ON RADIOLOGICAL PROTECTION ICRP ref 4825-3093-1464 Statement on Tissue Reactions

By 

Abstract

(1) The Commission issued new recommendations on radiological protection in 2007 (ICRP, 2007), which formally replaced the Commission’s 1990 Recommendations (ICRP, 1991a). The revised recommendations included consideration of the detriment arising from non-cancer effects of radiation on health. These effects, previously called deterministic effects, are now referred to as tissue reactions because it is increasingly recognised that some of these effects are not determined solely at the time of irradiation but can be modified after radiation exposure. Previously, the Commission had reviewed various aspects of non-cancer health effects of low linear-energy-transfer (LET) ionising radiation in Publication 41 (ICRP, 1984), high LET radiation in Publication 58 (ICRP, 1990), the skin i
