The RBE for High-LET Radiations with Respect to Mutagenesis

ICRP Publication 18

1972


Abstract - The document attempts a wide-ranging comparative survey of scientific reports on high-LET mutagenesis. It
considers the implication of this data for radiological protection. It includes information on the effects of high and low doses administered at high and low dose rates. The distinction between high- and low-LET radiation is also discussed.
