Abstract

This report includes summaries of oral presentations during a symposium on radiogenic lung cancer risk given by a panel of experts on October 5 [2022] on: 1) the largest pooled study of male uranium miners (PUMA) exposed to radon; 2) the most recent analysis of the Canadian Fluoroscopy cohrt featuring state-of-the-art dosimetry for radiatioh exposures associated with frequent medical diagnostic procedures; 3) an update from the Million Person Study on risks from fractionated occupational exposures; and 4) studies of second primary malignancies—including lung cancer—in patients who had been treated for thyroid cancer.
