These values have been published previously but are repeated here, as they are important to the calculation of the DFs and are often needed for making modifications to the DFs or understanding the numerical values.

What the latter point shows is that the specific absorbed fraction for cross-irradiation does not change with differences in mass, provided the source and target are sufficiently separated and that the change in mass of one or both does not appreciably change the distance between them. , GI tract organs, gallbladder, urinary bladder) is almost always assumed to be in the organ contents, with the target being cells in the organ wall. Although there is interest in calculating doses as a function of depth into the wall, the usual approach is to average the electron and photon doses over the mass of the wall.
