Abstract

A computer program was written to test assumptions on the mechanisms of response of cells to radiation. Current assumptions were implemented in the model and simulations were run to predict the survival of the hamster cell line V79 to irradiation with focused C(K) X-rays, 250 keV X-rays or 3.2 MeV protons. The model could reproduce the different types of response and support the idea that the response at low doses is non-linear and may be independent of LET. (C) 2008 Published by Elsevier Ltd.
