where V A is the volume of arterial blood, V i is the volume of the organ, and λ R is the decay constant of Rn. The volume of an organ is related to its mass M i as V i = M i / ρ A-3 is applicable to organs perfused by arterial blood and represented collectively, in figure A-1, by the Perfused Tissues compartment..

Radon isotopes, Rn, Rn, and Rn, with a half-life of days, s, and s, respectively, are the central members of each natural radioactive chain. Their immediate predecessors are radium isotopes, whose atoms disintegrate Author: Feriz Adrović.

The mean residence time,, for a radon atom in the alveolar sacs is the ratio of the resting alveolar volume, Va, to the alveolar ventilation rate, V, or: T=VJV (7) Since the radiological decay constant for radon is x 10~4 min~ *, the fraction of radon atoms decaying while in the alveolar air is (for small values of T): f = x 1 0 Cited by: 1.
