Ionizing radiation exposure gives rise to a variety of lesions in DNA that result in genetic instability and potentially tumorgenesis or cell death. At present, a particular interest of biological dosimetry is to establish a methodology to indicate interindividual sensitivity of people to ionising radiation. Current dose and risk estimates derived using cytogenetic methods and adequate calibration curves, are based on the assumption that all individuals respond equally to radiation. However, this is not necessarily the case. Individual increased radio sensitivity has been highly associated with susceptibility to cancer; therefore it is of particular interest to elucidate the mechanisms leading to such genetic changes.
