Thirdly, the report reviews the factors involved in uncertainty of transfer of radiation induced fatal cancer risks between populations such as the Japanese and United States populations. Fourthly, the report addresses the factors influencing the uncertainty in projection of current fatal cancer risk estimates to lifetime risk.

  National Council on Radiation Protection and Measurements () Uncertainties in fatal cancer risk estimates used in radiation protection. NCRP Report Bethesda MD. National Council on Radiation Protection and Measurements. Limitation of exposure to ionizing radiation. Bethesda, MD: N CRP; NCRP Report No. ; National Council on Radiation Protection and Measurements. Uncertainties in fatal cancer risk estimates used in radiation protection. Bethesda, MD: NCRP; NCRP Report No. ;   Risk estimates for cancer mortality and incidence and those for noncancer diseases can play a critical role in the development of dose limits used for radiation protection purposes. A recent example is provided by standards used by NASA for establishing limits on days in space for astronauts (Cucinotta et al ; reviewed in NA/NRC ). Risk.   Fatal cancer risk – has been considered the dominant risk for GCR and NASA has developed the NASA Space Cancer Risk (NSCR) model to estimate cancer risks and uncertainties for space missions,. NASA's radiation standard limits astronaut exposures to a 3% risk of exposure induced death (REID) evaluated at the upper 95% confidence interval (CI.

National Council on Ra- diation Protection and Measurements, NCRP Report No. Bethesda MD; Estimated Risks of Radiation-Induced Fatal Cancer from Pediatric CT suggested an overall uncertainty in the low—dose total cancer mortality risk estimates (per unit dose) of approximately a factor of 2 (although the uncertainties in cancer risks for individual organs or groups of . EPA Radiogenic Cancer Risk Models and Projections for the U.S. Population, also known as the Blue Book, is a revision of EPA's methodology for estimating cancer risks from radiation radiationEnergy given off as either particles or rays. exposure.. These updates are based on the National Research Council's report "Biological Effects of Ionizing Radiation (BEIR VII)," as well as on other. Uncertainties in fatal Cancer Risk Estimates used in Radiation Protection. NCRP No. Evaluation of the Linear-Nonthreshold Dose- For the purpose of radiation protection, stochastic effects are assumed to be possible at the smallest of doses. In other words, stochastic effects are not assumed to have.
