How to measure the human toxicity of radionuclides? Or are they not applicable in the endpoint measurement? Why?

Radionuclides have their own impact categories in life cyle impact assessment (Ionizing radiation) and the characterization modelling is largely based on epidemiological studies. Radionuclides  have therefore not been considered as part of the human toxicity and ecotoxicity impact categories in USEtox so far.
