Abstract
Uranium (7440611) miner lung dosimetry is discussed in terms of: characterization of mine atmospheres; lung model and breathing patterns; deposition of radon (10043922) daughters in the respiratory system; regional translocation and equilibrium activities; and target tissue and dose. Methods are compared for estimating the cancer related dose imparted to the basal cells of the bronchial epithelium resulting from the deposition of alpha emitting daughters of radon-222 on surfaces of the tracheobronchial tree.
