High-resolution measurements of the survival of asynchronous Chinese hamster V79-379A cells in vitro after single doses of X rays (0.01-10.0 Gy) and neutrons (0.02-3.0 Gy) were made using a computerized microscope for locating and identifying cells (Palcic and Jaggi, Int. J. Radiat. Biol. 50, 345-352, 1986). The X-ray response from 1 to 10 Gy showed a good fit to a linear-quadratic (LQ) dose-survival model, but with X-ray doses below 0.6 Gy, an increased X-ray effectiveness was observed, with… CONTINUE READING
