Improving assessment of lifetime solar ultraviolet radiation exposure in epidemiologic studies: comparison of ultraviolet exposure assessment methods in a nationwide United States occupational cohort

Abstract:

Solar ultraviolet radiation is the primary risk factor for skin cancers and sun-related eye disorders. Estimates of individual ambient ultraviolet irradiance derived from ground-based solar measurements and from satellite measurements have rarely been compared. Using self-reported residential history from 67,189 persons in a nationwide occupational US radiologic technologists cohort, we estimated ambient solar irradiance using data from ground-based meters and noontime satellite measurements...
