Abstract : This report provides detailed descriptions of the 32 proposed Expedited Processing Groups (EPGs) developed using the procedures and methods discussed in DTRA-TR-10-29, A Technical Approach to Expedited Processing of NTPR Radiation Dose Assessments. The discussion of each EPG includes the assumptions used in selecting units and participants included in each group; a description of the activities with potential for radiation exposure; the characteristics of the radiation environments that may have been encountered; and a description of efforts to maximize the estimated doses. It provides estimated doses and upper bounds for exposure to external and internal sources of radiation to the whole body and to 20 organs and tissues. The report also provides recommendations about the use of certain organ doses in the expedited dose reconstruction process.
