Effect of different radiation fractionation schedules on metastases from an oesophageal carcinoma

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Subcutaneous metastases from an oesophageal carcinoma were irradiated using different schedules. The results have to be evaluated with greatest caution but indicate that with the same CRE value, few fractions caused less skin reactions than several, and the size of the shoulder of the cell survival curve was of the order of 0.7 Gy.
