Using State Variables to Model the Response of Tumour Cells to Radiation and Heat: A Novel Multi-Hit-Repair Approach

Figure 5

Fractionated radiotherapy course used for cutoff evaluation: (a) For every dose step (fraction of 2 Gy), a constant reduction of results. Therefore, the (upper) envelope in (b) is characterized by a straight line (dotted line in the lower figure). This corresponds with the concept of Oliver [7] and the radiobiological models of Curtis [15] and Scheidegger [18] and represents the case of complete repair.
