The effect of combining X ray and neutron irradiations on cell survival in the mouse intestine has been investigated. The irradiations from the two beams were given within minutes or at most a few hours of each other when recovery from sublethal damage was not always complete. The results show that cells surviving the first dose of radiation have accumulated the same amount of recoverable sublethal damage regardless of whether that first dose was with X rays or neutrons. The rate at which the… CONTINUE READING
