Figure 4: Illustration of the relationship between dose and relative risk, based on data from the atomic bomb survivor cohort; adapted from Pierce and Preston (2000).[21] Note in particular that the extension to low doses (<0.5 Sv), whilst consistent with a linear fit, appears to underestimate the relative risk
