A model describing the variation of the risk coefficient as a function of modifying factors, such as time since exposure, attained age, or age at exposure. It may be related by a factor to the age-specific baseline risk (multiplicative) or added to the baseline risk (additive). (ICRP Publication 115, 2010)
