  1. Pearson's correlation coefficient (r) was calculated to show correlation between muscle radiocesium concentrations and hematological values for each age group.
  2. WBC, white blood cell count; RBC, red blood cell count; Hb, hemoglobin; Ht, hematocrit; Cs, muscle radiocesium concentration; n, number of individuals; p, p values.
