The Distribution of Oxygen Consumption Rates in Some Tissues before and after X-Irradiation
The oxygen consumption rate per unit volume of tissue is one of the factors which determines tissue oxygen tension, the other factors being arterial tension, blood perfusion and the oxygen diffusion constant and solubility. Since the microscopic structure of tumours has an important role in the response to radiation there is a need for developing techniques for measuring the local distributions of these parameters.
