The response of cultured bovine aortic endothelial (BAE) cells after exposure to alpha-particle radiation from chelated 212Bi has been evaluated. The results suggest that even relatively high doses of alpha-particle radiation from 212Bi (20-72 Gy) cause only minor acute changes in the morphology of BAE cells (light and electron microscopy) under conditions… CONTINUE READING
