  1. All Solid cancers, fitting over B-
  2. ERR: true value as specified by function
  3. f(d,β,σ,τ)=β·d+σ·(1−exp(−τ·d))
  4. g(d,β,σ,τ)=β·d+σ·d·exp(−τ·d)
  5. h(d,γ)=ifelse(d<γ,0,1/5·((dγ)/(100−γ))3)
  6. Mean (lhe or lhd): mean coverage at 10, 20…100 mGy of 95% CI for P2e (P2d) see also Appendix B
