(a) Calculated using the CINDY Code (Version 1.3) (Strenge et al., 1992)
(b) Defined as a Pu mixture consisting of, by weight %, 93% 239Pu, 6.1% 240Pu, 0.8% 241Pu, 0.05% 238Pu, and 0.05%
Pu, with 5 years allowed for 241Am ingrowth.
242
(c) Intake of 4.7-nCi Pu-α, 38-nCi 241Pu, and 0.34-nCi 241Am, giving a committed dose equivalent of 50 rem to the
bone surfaces.
(d)  Intake of 0.19-nCi Pu- α, 1.5-nCi 241Pu, and 0.014-nCi 241Am, giving a committed effective dose equivalent of 0.1
rem.
(e) Intake of 12-nCi Pu- α , 97-nCi 241Pu, and 0.86-nCi 241Am, giving a committed dose equivalent of 50 rem to the
bone surfaces.
(f)  Intake of 0.27-nCi Pu- α, 2.2-nCi 241Pu, and 0.019-nCi 241Am, giving a committed effective dose equivalent of 0.1
rem.
The problem is simply that the measurement technology is not available to provide
the sensitivities required for the 100-mrem goal using routine, periodic measurements
at reasonable frequencies. Therefore, because the goal of 100-mrem CEDE cannot be
met through routine bioassay, the radiation protection organization should take the
following administrative actions:
-- ensure that adequate control measures are applied to prevent intakes
-- document the adequate control measures for auditing purposes
