Exposure Assessment

  • Stephen L. Brown
Part of the Life Science Monographs book series (LSMO)


Assessing the significance of toxicological tests and observations for risks to both humans and other organisms is impossible without defining the exposures to the hazardous agent (chemical or otherwise). The risk assessor must use a collection of techniques to express the exposures of target organisms in terms that are compatible with the measurements of exposure reported in the literature on toxicological tests.
