Although these data never fully characterize personal exposure, they serve as the basis for dose reconstruction which is necessary for determining dose/response relationships.
Ignoring those errors in individual dose reconstruction results in underestimation of both the point estimate of radiation risk per Gy (as a continuous variable) and the upper limit of 95% CI (Li et al.
In response to concerns about military personnel and civilian exposure to radiation from the US atmospheric nuclear weapons testing program of 1945-62, Congress charged an independent committee to review the Dose Reconstruction Program.
A time-and-motion dose reconstruction method, known as Realistic Analytical Dose Reconstruction with Uncertainty Estimation (RADRUE), was developed specifically for this study and for a similar study conducted in Belarus, Russia, and Baltic countries (Kesminiene et al.
The act specified that the President establish an Advisory Board on Radiation and Worker Health to review the scientific validity of NIOSH's dose reconstructions and recommend whether workers should be part of special exposure cohorts whose claimants can be compensated without dose reconstructions.
Patients are also more comfortable and safer, as the system features a large 78-cm bore and iterative dose reconstruction software, AIDR 3D, that significantly reduces radiation dose compared with conventional scanning.
The dose reconstruction exercise entailed determining the time and extent of DEHP exposure that would lead to predicted concentrations matching the measured concentrations of DEHP metabolites.
The system features AIDR 3D, Toshiba's third-generation iterative dose reconstruction software, which incorporates an easy to implement iterative reconstruction process, reducing radiation dose compared with conventional scanning.
