REB Tools & Resources
Investigators in the Radiation Epidemiology Branch (REB) provide a variety of tools and resources to be used by the scientific community.
Chernobyl Tissue Bank (CTB)
The CTB is a resource to collect, document, store, and issue to bona fide researchers, biological samples donated by patients with thyroid tumors who live in the vicinity of the site of the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant.
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.
Radiation Dosimetry Methods and Tools
Methods and tools for determining radiation doses to organs using innovative modeling and computational and physical human phantoms.
- Phantoms, three-dimensional computational human anatomy models
- NCICT, NCI dosimetry system for Computed Tomography
- NCINM, NCI dosimetry system for Nuclear Medicine
- NCIRF, NCI dosimetry system for Radiography and Fluoroscopy
- Dose Conversion Coefficients
Radiation Risk Assessment Tool (RadRAT)
An online calculator for estimating the lifetime risk of cancer incidence for members of the U.S. population (or countries with similar cancer incidence rates) from exposure to ionizing radiation for doses below 1 Gy.
Thyroid Dose and Risk Calculator for Nuclear Weapons Fallout for the U.S. Population
An online calculator to estimate the I-131 radiation dose received by the thyroid gland from radionuclides in fallout from nuclear tests.
REB offers a number of seminars and workshops to trainees and staff as well as to the greater scientific community. This includes a week-long Radiation Epidemiology and Dosimetry Course, given periodically by experts in the radiation field.
