Major Study Activities

Cohort follow-up for vital status and current addresses

Questionnaire surveys to collect updated information:

  • incident cancers and other disease outcomes
  • occupational exposures to ionizing radiation
  • personal medical radiation exposures
  • sun sensitivity and ultraviolet radiation exposures
  • other disease risk factors

Medical validation of reported cancers and other diseases of interest

Biospecimen collection for genetic studies

Dose reconstruction:

  • occupational radiation exposure
  • personal medical radiation exposure
  • ultraviolet radiation exposure

Assess cancer and other disease risks associated with radiation and other risk factors

Evaluate genetic main effects and gene-radiation interactions
