24) The absorbed dose to the breast for a perfusion scan is 0.
Furthermore, the absorbed doses for the study are not equivalent and the irradiation conditions (geometry, temperature control, and equilibrium material) differ.
The calculated absorbed doses were generally higher than were their corresponding model-predicted values except for the estimates for the two children (S1-2 and S6-1) who consumed food items containing CPF residues.
The new data also show that risks associated with a given total absorbed dose diminish with time since exposure.
Further, a high absorbed dose is required to generate a satisfactory level of crosslinking in the NR phase (28) due to its high unsaturation in the backbone.
The method we used to estimate the RBA of Pb in a particular test material compared with the reference material (Pb acetate) is based on the principle that equal absorbed doses of Pb will produce equal biological responses.
Furthermore, even at these levels, the doses may not have been as high as administered because probably not all the ATR ingested would have been absorbed; a portion of it could have been easily eliminated through the feces, suggesting that lower actually absorbed doses could underlie the deleterious effects observed in this study.
