Physical and radiobiological evidence is summarised conceming significant dosimetric effects in tissue adjacent to a solid gold surface, when this interface zone is irradiated with X rays of qualities common in medical diagnosis. Physical measurements result in a more than 100-fold dose enhancement attributable to photoelectrons and Auger electrons emerging from the gold surface. The enhanced interface doses are shown to correspond with significantly diminished cell growth and cell survival as… CONTINUE READING
