Excess relative risk of malignant tumors by site
Estimated value and 95% confidence interval of the excess relative risk (ERR) and 95%CI for major causes death (1950-2003).
Excess relative risk
Cited and modified from Ozasa K et al. Radiat Res 177, 229-243(2012)
At each malignant tumor site, excess relative risk was estimated on the basis of the gamma ray dose or the organ dose using the 2002 dosimetry system (DS02).
A significantly high excess relative risk was recognized in leukemia, malignant tumors of the esophagus, stomach, colon, liver, gallbladder, lung, breast, ovary, bladder and renal pelvis and ureter..
