Estimations of radiation - induced risks from low doses and how to communicate these risks

Mattsson, Sören LU (2013) 11th International Conference on Medical Physics p.46-51
Abstract
This paper is intended to give a short overview of the epidemiologic and experimental data on cancer risks associated with very low radiation absorbed doses. The paper will also discuss methods to present these data in an understandable way to those who are exposed e. g. in medical diagnostics and after a radiological or nuclear accident.
