Center for Radiation Protection Knowledge

This Center is an activity of the Dosimetry Research Team at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL). This Center is responsible for the formulation, implementation, and maintenance of dosimetric methodologies used by federal agencies in occupational and environmental radiation protection, risk assessment, and radioepidemiology. The Center provides the radiologic, anatomic, dosimetric, and biokinetic data and models used to compute the dose to tissues of the body for various radiation exposures or radionuclide intakes.

Resources (e.g., software, biokinetic models, publications) developed by Center personnel are accessible as downloads, interactive pages, PDFs, links, or lists. For more background on the Center see this page.
