In general neither the dose-response relationships proposed by Mole or by Kellerer and Rossi are linear. We may expect to hear more of these topics in the lectures by Paretzke 69 and Rossi. 24 A second assumption used in radiation protection is that there is no diminution in the biological effect produced by a given absorbed dose as the absorbed dose rate is reduced.
