Abstract

Biophysical models are the analytical tools by which the effects of radiation may be interpreted. This book presents an objective review of the current state of radiation effect modelling together with future development aims, as discussed by leading scientists at an international workshop held during September 1991 in Padua, Italy. Research on existing models and data sets used to test different models is described in detail. The applications of models to radiation biology and radiological protection are reviewed, as are recent developments in the modelling of the carcinogenic process. The interaction of mixed radiations, track theory and the effects of radiation on DNA are also considered. Panel contributions and discussions are included on all major topics.
