Abstract

This is obviously not the place for a detailed discussion of the various types of radiation, their sources and the factors which influence their biological effect. Those subjects have been repeatedly reviewed in great detail (25, 26). Only the physical and biological factors which have a bearing on the clinical and experimental data to be described in sections 3 and 4, will be briefly discussed in the following paragraphs.
