Table 2 Transfer of risks between the Japanese and the UK population using weighting between a generalized ERR and EAR model according to ICRP 103 [19] and UNSCEAR [20].

From: Site-specific dose-response relationships for cancer induction from the combined Japanese A-bomb and Hodgkin cohorts for doses relevant to radiotherapy

  1. All values are normalized to EAR of the Japanese population. The weighting w between the model is taken from ICRP103 [19].
  2. transfer between populations and models taken from "all other solids" of UNSCEAR [20]
