I’ll move on. ’” while Breath turns into Air is an unforgettable, life-affirming mirrored image at the problem of dealing with demise and at the dating among health practitioner and sufferer, from a super author who grew to become either.

From Rubin P, Casarett GW: Clinical Radiation Pathology. B. ) Radiation acts at molecular and cellular levels, and tissue effects represent a summation of those effects. Because the key target cells for the survival of a complex organ depends on the organization of all its tissues, cellular damage in one key cell population may result in death of the whole tissue. For example, small blood vessels are fairly sensitive to irradiation, so the effects on a tissue from disruption of its blood supply may be greater than those from the irradiation of the parenchymal cells themselves.

The ‘‘dose limiting tissues or organs’’ in radiation therapy are based upon our inability to define an optimum tumor dose (many biological factors are unknown clinically) so that the radiation oncologist is often required to treat to tolerance. 0 cGy. Normal Tissues/Organs were divided into 3 classes: • Class I—Organs in which radiation lesions are fatal or result in severe morbidity. – Vital Organs (Table 5). • Class II—Organs in which radiation lesions result in moderate to mild morbidity and in exceptional circumstances a fatality, but generally late effects are compatible with survival.
