Figure 3: The excess relative risk (ERR) per Sievert for different organ types, corresponding to exposure at age 30 and attained age 60. The ERR is defined as the rate of disease in an exposed population divided by the rate of disease in an unexposed population, minus 1. This figure is based on BEIR[5] data, and indicates the varying sensitivities of different organs to ionizing radiation and the relative sensitivity of females compared to males
