Data relating to jejunal crypt survival following fractionated total body irradiation of C3H mice have been subjected to a preliminary analysis using the linear-quadratic formalism. Because the regimes considered involved fairly closely-spaced fractions, delivered at dose rates in the range 1.2-72 Gy h-1, it was necessary to further develop previously established forms of the model in order to carry out the evaluation. The magnitude of the recovery half-life has been deduced for each of the… CONTINUE READING
