1. Summary

Abstract for the general public

Radiation exposure is a carcinogenic risk factor and clothing provides a physical barrier that reduces the amount of radiation reaching the skin. This project will study the sun protection factor of clothing, considering body surface area covered and material properties, using digital human modelling methods to support modelling of skin cancer risk
