Abstract

The purpose of this work is to provide justification for introducing a dependence on the age of an individual at the moment of irradiation into the definition of the effective dose and to estimate the numerical values of the age-weighting coefficients. A modified approach to defining the effective dose, taking account of the age at the moment of irradiation, is proposed. The numerical values of the age-weighting coefficients are determined using the basic models for extrapolating radiation risk for two different populations: the Russian population and part of the US population.
