Purpose : To compare the difference in relative biological effectiveness (RBE) between 10 B ions and a 60 Co γ-ray beam for human melanoma cells using in vitro cell survival based on a clonogenic assay. Materials and methods : Cells were irradiated in vitro under aerobic conditions with 60 Co and 10 B ions with different linear energy transfer (LET) (40, 80 and 160 eV nm -1) . The dose to the cells was determined using ferrous sulphate dosimetry and an ionisation chamber. The standard linear… Expand
