Attributable risk

Attributable risk refers to the fraction of diseases or deaths that is estimated to result from exposure to radiation. It increases with dose. Total attributable risk for leukemia deaths is nearly 50% and for solid cancers about 10% among the Life Span Study (LSS) survivors who received 0.005 Gy or more (significant dose).
