    Physics Department, St John s University, Collegeville, MN 56321, USA
    Health Phys 83:261-71. 2002
    ..Implanted 210Po measurements are also useful in retrospective epidemiologic studies that include participants who may have been exposed to highly variable radon concentrations in previously occupied or structurally modified homes...

    D J Steck
    Physics Department, St John s University, Collegeville, MN 56321, USA
    Health Phys 96:37-47. 2009
    ..The radon variations observed in this study provide uncertainty estimates for year-long measurements that could help improve remediation decision protocols and refine risk estimates from epidemiological studies...

    R William Field
    Department of Epidemiology, College of Public Health, University of Iowa, Iowa City 52242, USA
    J Expo Anal Environ Epidemiol 12:197-203. 2002
    ..The findings indicate that the power of an epidemiologic study to detect an excess risk from residential radon exposure is enhanced by linking spatially disparate radon concentrations with the subject's retrospective mobility...

    Daniel Krewski
    McLaughlin Centre for Population Health Risk Assessment, University of Ottawa, Ottawa, Ontario, Canada
    Epidemiology 16:137-45. 2005
    ..Residential exposure to radon is at much lower levels, and the risk of lung cancer with residential exposure is less clear. We conducted a systematic analysis of pooled data from all North American residential radon studies...
