What is another term for non stochastic effects?
Deterministic effects
What is another term for stochastic effects?
Probabilistic effects
Dose dependent/dose dictates what we see and the severity of the effect, higher dose = worse effects
Non stochastic effects (Deterministic effects)
The chance of having an effect goes up as the dose goes up, higher dose = higher chance; risk increases with increasing dose; effects are not dose dependent; Genetic and cancer
Stochastic effects? (Probabilistic effects)
For average American, lifetime risk of developing cancer is ~40%; it is estimated that radiation exposure of 1000 mrem increases the risk by approximately _______%
0.05%
Assesses radiation exposure and risk of biological damage to us and general public; tries to figure risk of cancer from radiation to the tissues exposed; optimal method for evaluating exposure and estimating risk for injury
EfD (effective dose)
Approximately equal to the dose (energy concentration) deposited in air (for xrays)
