Description: Equations are developed for the computation of MPC's for radioisotopes assuming the excretion or retention to follow a power law rather than an exponential law. Computations are made for four isotopes on which some human data are available. Uncertainties in the initial data due to the use of intravenous injection to obtain the primary data, the definition of retention and the effects of age and diet are discussed.
