Impact of tissue type and effect level on the uncertainties of RBE: Experimental and modelling aspects

T. Friedrich, T. Elsässer, M. Durante & M. Scholz
The relative biological effectiveness (RBE) is generally used in ion therapy to characterize the enhanced effect of ions compared to that of photons. Experimental results as well as model predictions suggest, that RBE depends on the resistance of a cell or tissue type against photon radiation. Within[for full text, please go to the a.m. URL]
