Dose constraint

From ICRPaedia
Jump to navigation Jump to search

A prospective, source related value of individual dose, applied in a planned exposure situation, above which it is unlikely that protection is optimised for a given source. The value of the dose constraint takes into account the estimated individual dose distribution, with the objective of identifying exposures that warrant specific attention and facilitate optimisation of protection.
