Radium ingestion dose conversion factors along with the supporting 
information and references are found on pages 85-93 in ICRP 
Publication 67 (1994) and in The ICRP Database of Dose Coefficients: 
Workers and members of the Public" (2001) available on CD. The dose 
coefficients for radium have been well understood for decades based 
on the studies of the U.S. Radium workers.
