Table 5 Probabilities of causation

From: A case of chronic myeloid leukemia in a diagnostic radiographer

1990-1996 (Estimation) Type of disease 1st 5th 50th 90th 95th 99th
17.48 mSv/year Leukemia, except CLL* 32.96% 37.79% 49.81% 58.29% 60.36% 65.01%
CML 25.95% 35.95% 58.83% 73.00% 76.28% 81.73%
6.02 mSv/year Leukemia, except CLL 26.94% 31.29% 42.65% 51.23% 53.35% 58.31%
CML 25.66% 35.26% 57.28% 71.12% 74.51% 80.00%
  1. *CLL, Chronic lymphocytic leukemia.
  2. Note: 17.48 mSv/year is the highest value of estimation, i.e., the radiation in 2003, and 6.02 mSv/year is the mean value of radiation for the period from 1997 to 2012.
