The evidence in support of the two opposing views as to the pathogenesis of late radiation damage to the central nervous system after therapeutic doses of radiation are briefly reviewed. Analysis of the radiation dose levels used by various investigators holding opposing views as to pathogenesis of CNS lesions they reported, suggests that both groups of protagonists were in part correct. Both vascular and glial changes are important in the development of late radiation damage to the nervous… CONTINUE READING
