Biological Half Life

   Where would I find a listing of biological half lives? (commercial nuclear power, department of energy, fuel cycle, mining, university, medical, etc.)

   I am aware of ICRP Publication 53 and the multi-compartmental methodology. Is there a quick reference source for field use for the common nuclides (Co60/58, Cs137/Sr90, I131, Xe133, Kr85, Pu239/Am241, U238).

For the most common.......

Hope this helps, RG

Mine is at home so I don't know for sure but I think The Health Physics and Radiological Health Handbook has a table in it. Maybe someone who has theirs handy can take a look.
