Provided that the dose limits are observed, the optimum radiation protection alternative is generally considered to be one that results in the smallest "collective dose" that can be achieved at reasonable cost, because this results in the smallest collective health risk (or "detriment") to the exposed group.

CONT

Pourvu que les limites prescrites soient respectées, on considère généralement que la protection optimale contre l'irradiation est celle qui permet de minimiser la «dose collective» à un coût raisonnable, car c'est la solution qui fait courir le moins de risque collectif (ou «détriment») à la santé du groupe exposé.
