Definition: A radiation exposure scenario is a collection of one or more sequential time intervals in which the instantaneous absorbed dose rate is a constant (average) value greater than or equal to zero. For additional discussion and examples, see the Radiation Delivery section of the manual.
Tip: To setup DECAY exposure scenarios, the half-life or decay constant of the isotope must be specified. A table of half-lives for many common radioisotopes is available elsewhere in the VC manual.
