About the book

The purpose of this annex is to summarize the literature on non-targeted effects associated with exposure to ionizing radiation and, where possible, to evaluate how such effects may affect risks associated with radiation exposure, the understanding of radiation-induced carcinogenesis, and the mechanistic basis for interpreting epidemiological data on radiation effects.
