Organ list of the adult anthropomorphic phantom, with the number of MOSFETs used for dosimetry experiments and tissue (organ)-weighting factors as defined in ICRP publication 103 and ICRP publication 60.

ICRP = International Commission on Radiological Protection; MOFSET = metal-oxide semiconductor field-effect transistor.

  • Skin was not included.

  • Remainder organs in ICRP 103 definition of effective dose: adrenals, extrathoracic region, gall bladder, heart, kidneys, oral mucosa, pancreas, prostate, small intestine, spleen, thymus, uterus/cervix, without lymphatic nodes and muscle (each remainder organ had a tissue weight of 0.12/11= 0.0109). Remainder organs in ICRP 60 definition of effective dose: adrenals, brain, upper large intestine, small intestine, kidneys, muscle, pancreas, spleen, thymus, and uterus.
