Title: Absorbed dose rates in tissue from prompt gamma emissions from near-thermal neutron absorption

Abstract

Prompt gamma emission data from the International Atomic Energy Agency s Prompt Gamma-ray Neutron Activation Analysis database are analyzed to determine the absorbed dose rates in tissue to be expected when natural elements are exposed in a near-thermal neutron environment.
