Interactive Radioepidemiological Computer Program
IRCP was created to fulfill a Congressional mandate (Public Law 97-414, Section 7(b)) to create a set of summary tables which might be used to help evaluate the merits of compensation claims for cancer cases thought to have been caused by radiation exposure.
