Introduction to Radiological Hydrology: A Kinematic Model to Estimate the Effective Dose of Radioactive Substances in the Human Body for Radiological Protection
Author : Tadashi Yamada, Tomohito J. Yamada and Syota Sasaki
The present study provides a readily understandable kinematic-based model to estimate the e ffective dose of radioactive substances in the human body without the need for consideration of any complicated mechanism. For example, the International Commission on Radiological Protection has developed an exact model, which is considered by radiologists the standard method of calculating the effective dose. However, this method is too complex for non-professional researchers of radiology to understand because it divides a human body into ~20 organs. In contrast, here we calculate the effective dose by regarding the human body as a single vessel. Although the present study does not involve consideration of a complicated mechanism, it does provide results with an accuracy equal to those of existing research.
