Background: The secondary cancer risk originated from radiation treatment is an important issue for pediatric cancer patients. The probability of cancer is linearly related to absorbed dose, up to about 2.5 Sv, but is no longer linear at higher doses. Relative cancer risk may decrease at high radiation[for full text, please go to the a.m. URL]
