Correlation between the cellular responses to ionising radiation. a Association between DNA double-strand break (DSB) induction (γH2AX foci 1 Gy 0.5 h) and repair (γH2AX foci 4 Gy 24 h), b background lymphocyte apoptotic response relative to radiation-induced lymphocyte apoptosis (RILA) in the same patient, c, d association of RILA (%FLICAbackground-corrected) with DSB induction (c) and residual DSB (d). Solid lines were generated by linear regression method; R represents correlation coefficient generated by Spearman's rank correlation test
