IMPORTANT! UNITS MATTER!
READ THIS BEFORE USING LYMPHOCYTE DEPLETION KINETICS TOOL
 This tool requires the following lymphocyte units to yield a valid result
 ALC Values must be entered in units of: [measured value] x 10^{9} cells/liter
 Many labs and clinicians use different units:
 [measured value] x cells/mm^{3} or [measured value] x cells/mcL
 Before using this tool. be sure to convert the ALC to the proper units!
 Values must be in the following ranges
 Entering > 7.0 x 10^{9} cells/liter will yield warning message:
"Lymphocyte count is out of range"
 Entering < 0.007 x 10^{9} cells /liter will yield warning message:
"Lymphocyte count is out of range"
 For calculations using a single absolute lymphocyte count,the following condition must be present for this tool to calculate a radiation dose
 Lymphocyte count is > 0.007 x 10^{9} cells/liter and ≤ 1.35 x 10^{9} cells/liter
 For calculations using multiple absolute lymphocyte counts, the following conditions must be present for this tool to calculate a radiation dose
 At least one total lymphocyte count must be ≤ 1.35 x 10^{9} cells/liter OR
 One blood draw must occur ≥ 36 hours after exposure
 Time range for drawing blood for the lymphocyte depletion kinetics tool
 Latest allowable time: 264 hours (11 days) after the "date/time of exposure"
 The tool will not allow entry of any measurements taken before time of exposure.
