Abstract The report examines the effects of low-level external exposure to ionizing radiation on mortality among workers at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL). A retrospective cohort study examines 14,095 ORNL workers hired between 1943 and 1972 who were followed through 1990. Analyses focus on time-related factors influencing the association between all cancer mortality rates and cumulative external radiation dose. A limited number of analyses further considered all cause mortality, all causes except cancer, lung cancer, all cancers except lung, leukemia, ischemic heart disease, non-malignant respiratory disease, and external causes. The effects of external radiation dose were larger for doses received at older ages.
