Quick Reference

A curve (relating relative survival to radiation dose) that contains an initial flat portion. This finding indicates that there is little biological effect until a certain dose has accumulated, and suggests that the sensitive target must be hit more than once (or that there must be multiple targets, each of which must be destroyed) to produce a biologically measurable effect. See single-event curve, target theory.
