Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Scatter radiation has lower LET and may bring low dose hypersensitivity. There are biphasic effects such as cell death and physiological-biochemical effect. Cure inflammatory process may occur in necrosis but not in apoptosis. Careful prescription single dose could avoid serious side effect. The late effect may relates bystander effect and recall phenomenon through continuing production of the cytokine such as TGF β.
