NCRP Report No. 95, Radiation Exposure of the U.S. Population from Consumer Products and Miscellaneous Sources

NCRP Report No. 95 is another of the assessment series of reports. This Report recognizes that there are many consumer products available which emit ionizing radiation, in some cases as an essential element of the proper performance of the device and in other cases as incidental or extraneous to the purpose for which the product was designed. The Report evaluates the exposures from all of these types of products. Treated are electronic products such as television receivers and airport luggage inspection systems; radioactive materials such as radioluminous products, building materials, glass and ceramics; and miscellaneous exposure sources such as high voltage vacuum electronic units. Also covered are exposures resulting from disposal of radioactive surplus items and transport of radioactive materials. Recommendations for dose reduction are also provided in the Report.
