Microscopic energy distribution of low-dose radiation

Watanabe, Ritsuko

To comprehend the low-dose radiation induced biological effect from the initial process, the microscopic dose distribution needs to be considered because of its strong ununiformity. In this article, distribution of energy deposition by low-dose $$^{137}$$Cs $$gamma$$-rays calculated using Monte Carlo track structure simulation is presented. Also, the concept of low-dose radiation from a standpoint of microdosimetry is overviewed. This review is a part of special articles on radiation biological effect induced by low-dose and low-dose rate radiation.
