Task Group 96
Computational Phantoms and Radiation Transport

A Task Group under Committee 2

The mandate for this Task Group – Computational Phantoms and Radiation Transport – is focused on similar activities for updating the ICRP Public Series of reports to include internal dose coefficients to children and to the embryo and fetus following intakes by the adult pregnant female. 

Specific work includes

  1. development of reference voxel phantoms representing the ICRP 89 defined male and female newborn, 1-year-old, 5-year-old, 10-year-old, and 15-year-old, 
  2. use of these pediatric reference phantoms to established reference values of specific absorbed fractions to support the INDOS public exposure document series (replacing ICRP Publications 56, 67, 71, and 72), 
  3. development of corresponding models of the adult pregnant female and her developing embryo/fetus, and 
  4. use of these phantoms to calculate reference values of specific absorbed fraction to support the INDOS public exposure document series (replacing ICRP Publications 88 and 95).

The assessment of reference dose coefficients for external exposure of children and the adult pregnant women is the responsibility of Committee 2 Task Group 90 - Age-dependent Dose Conversion Coefficients for External Exposures to Environmental Sources.
