Sorry to reveal my ignorance on RADSAFE - what is a "tolerance dose"??? We
have maximal permissible doses, average ones, we have doses for radiation
workers, for members of the public - so what else to confuse the radiation
protection community? 

Could you please enlighten me, what a "tolerance dose" is. Eftersom jag
talar flytande svenska far du skicka mig vilken svensk publikation som

Best regards - med vänlig hälsning!

Betreff: [ RadSafe ] Tolerance doses

Dear colleagues,

I am writing a review article regarding tolerance doses and biological
effects from radiation (with concepts as TD, MTD, MTA, NTCP, BED etc), but i
have some problems in finding the right articles. My thought was to try to
collect and relate the tolerance doses from different radiation methods,
i.e. external and different radioisotopes used for internal therapy. I have
done the usual searches but it seems to me that I either gets alot of hits
or very few. 

Mainly, the organs of interest is kidney, liver and bone marrow. If you have
any information or know where i can find the information needed, help would
be much appreciated. Data from humans, mice or rats is favorable but if you
have any data that you think might help me, please contact me.
