Extremities The term 'Extremities' as it applies to the area of nuclear science can be defined as ' The hands, forearms, elbows, feet, knees, leg below the knees, and ankles. Permissible radiation exposures in these regions are generally greater than those for whole body exposure because the extremities contain fewer blood-forming organs and have smaller volumes for energy absorption. (See 10 CFR 20.1003.) '.
