Evaluation of effective dose coefficient with variation of absorption fraction in gastrointestinal system for ingestion of radiocesium

Pratama, M. A.; Takahara, Shogo; Hato, Shinji*

Hoken Butsuri, 52(3), p.200 - 209, 2017/09

The purpose of this study is to identify the significance of the change in the intestinal absorption rate values the ($$f_{1}$$ value) to the change of dose coefficient as well as to provide a list of dose coefficients which each of the value corresponds to a specific intestinal absorption rate and age groups. In the range of 0-1, 10 different values of $$f_{1}$$ for 1 year, 5 years old, and adult group were chosen and used in a separate calculation by using, a biokinetic compartment model, DCAL. It was found that the lower values of intestinal absorption rate lead to a significant decrease of the committed effective coefficient for adult. Oppositely for children, the decrease of committed effective coefficient was not as significant. This study also suggests that the significance of dose coefficient change due to the variation of $$f_{1}$$ substantially depends on the biological half-life of the radionuclide and the mass of organs and tissues in human body.

Internal dose coefficients for off-site radiological consequence analysis of nuclear reactor accidents

Hato, Shinji*; Homma, Toshimitsu

JAERI-Data/Code 2005-006, 549 Pages, 2005/09


The OSCAAR computer code for use in probabilistic accident consequence assessment (Level3PSA) developed at JAERI has calculated dose to the public with internal dose conversion factors based on dosimetric models and biokinetic data provided in ICRP Publication 30. Since ICRP issued age-dependent biokinetic models for a limited set of radioisotopes as ICRP Publication 56, a new Human Respiratory Tract model, age-dependent biokinetic model for other radioisotopes and urinary and faecal excretion models were issued. ICRP has published age-dependent internal dose coefficients for a large set of radionuclides in its publications, but they provided only committed effective dose coefficients for inhalation and ingestion. Since OSCAAR estimated acute and late health effects for public, it needs internal dose coefficients for specific tissues and organs in arbitrary integration times.This report describes a code DSYS developed for calculating dose coefficients based on these new ICRP models. It also provides the internal dose coefficients for 54 radionuclides used in OSCAAR calculations.
