Abstract

To study early (deterministic) and long-term effects of radiation exposure, the “Clinic” medical-dosimetric database for the Mayak Production Association worker cohort has been established at the Southern Urals Biophysics Institute (SUBI). This paper describes the principles of organization, structure and prospects of future utilization of this database.
