The variations of dose response with X ray energy observed with the human lymphocyte dicentric assay is examined. In order to determine reliably the initial slopes (RBEm) many cells need to be analysed at low doses. Insufficient analysis may explain some reported interlaboratory differences in fitted dose-response coefficients. One such discrepancy at 150 kVp, E = 70 keV is examined. Data are also presented for an X ray spectrum of 80 kVp, E = 58 keV. Over the photon energy range 20 keV X rays… CONTINUE READING
