Abstract

A unique study of the relative RBEs of a- and b-radiation where both the temporal and spatial distribution of dose are ~ coincident. RBE ratios produced for benign and malignant lung tumours. Results produced suggest that RBE values are both tumour and dose-specific. RBE values of 1 to 10.
