Standard blood counts meeting the criteria for developing standards (examination of large groups of patients, matched by age, gender, nationality, occupation, season etc.) and mathematical processing adequate to the task are required to asses the impact of low-intensity radiation factors upon the hematopoietic system (a single external radiation exposure to < 1Gy, chronic radiation exposure to doses more than maximum permissible) and the effects of acute radiation disease. Comparative evaluation of blood values to asses the impact of occupational factors should be adjusted to fluctuations of 10–12 values using blood deterioration ratio and leucogram entropy. To analyse and compare the impact of different low intensity factors upon hemapoiesis its advisable to develop regional standards.

Key words: hematologic norm, low intensity radiation factors, practical applications
