Abstract

Most therapeutic modalities are associated with risks. Recent research has stressed the importance of quantitative risk assessments which permit comparisons with other risk factors, such as background radiation, hazards of other modes of therapy, and various life-style risks. Although more data are available on the theoretical and clinical aspects of radiation side effects than about the risks of any other mode of therapy, there is a large gap between the opinions of experts and the view of the public.
