A comparison of the old RCGs endorsed in 1960 by the Federal Radiation Council (FRC 1960) with the revised RCGs presented in this report indicates that in about 80% of the cases, changes in the numerical values were not substantial, that is, less than a factor of 4. However, some RCGs are altered substantially by the new metabolic and dosimetric models, in particular, the lung and bone dosimetry models. Revisions in half-life, nuclear decay data, uptake to body fluids, retention in lung and body tissues, and energy deposition estimates also contributed to changes in the RCGs for a given radionuclide has not been revised substantially, it should not be concluded that the components of its dosimetric analysis have not changed.
