A simple quantitative method for assessing pulmonary damage after x irradiation.


Pulmonary damage after radiotherapy is typically characterized by an initial alveolar inflammation (pneumonitis) followed by chronic fibrosis. In the present study, changes in lung architecture were measured in the pneumonitis phase after whole-body low-dose X irradiation of C57BL/6 mice. Radiation damage was evaluated at 24 h and 1-8 weeks postirradiation… (More)
