Changes and improvements in this field may be empirical, based on a gradual evolution of accepted techniques, or they may be a direct result of laboratory-based research. While most advances in radiation oncology have been of the former kind, the introduction of high-LET radiations in undoubtedly one of the first concrete examples of the by: 2.

What is an indirect hit effect? Ionizing event occurred with the water molecule out in the cytoplasm, and damage is carried to the target molecule by free radical action (travel to nucleus and interact with DNA) or .
The observation that differences in RBE are endpoint specific and tissue speci 12 suggests that high LET radiation may not only differ from low LET radiation in severity of cell death induction but also in the type of mechanisms it by: In the application of high-LET radiations to the treatment of cancer an additional type of quantitative information is required: the relative biological effectiveness value (RBE). This is especially relevant with the increasing application of external radiotherapy with light ion beams and of alpha-particle emitters in targeted radionuclide Cited by: For human cells, the relative biological effectiveness (RBE) of high-LET radiations has direct practical implications in therapy applications and in assessing risks from environmental and occupational exposures, and it also provides analytic information on the underlying mechanisms of radiation Size: KB.
