Abstract: Recently, several epidemiological studies were interested in identifying potential health effects of incorporated radionuclides. To achieve this work, exposure of individuals was quantified in order to be compared with health status. In order to quantify the exposure of workers, the measurement of retained or excreted activity also called bioassay, must be interpreted in terms of dose. The data available for dose reconstruction are mostly bioassay analyses (mostly urine) carried out to verify the absence...
