Abstract The purpose of this report is to extend the method of calculation used in the International Commission on Radiation Protection Handbook to estimate the Maximum Permissible Concentrations values or the maximum permissible intake (MPI) of these same radioactive materials for a single exposure. Since the concentration of material in the GI tract reaches equilibrium with that in air and water in a few days, one might suspect that the GI tract frequently would become the critical body organ for short periods of exposure. Another body organ likely to receive a high exposure and as a consequence become the critical body organ for single exposure is the lung. (Author Modified Abstract)
