The early RBE of the bone marrow in mice after single irradiation with fast neutrons (35 MeVp→Be) was studied.60Co-γ ray was used for referent beams. Using the dose making 50% loss of the nucleated cells of bone marrow in mice relative to control group mice to calculated the RBE value which was 2.13±0.18. Meanwhile, the relationship of the RBE values and the dose of neutrons was noted. On log-log plot, the RBE values decrease with increasing dose of fast neutrons and it is consistent with a… CONTINUE READING
