Current radiation protection philosophy is based on the linear no-threshold (LNT) theory. This theory postulates that any dose of ionizing radiation, no matter how small, causes a finite increase in cancer risk. The LNT theory does not predict any qualitative differences in effects between low doses delivered at low dose-rates (LDDR) and high doses delivered at high dose-rates (HDDR), It does not allow for the possibility that LDDR may decrease risks, and it does not account for nonlinear modifiers of risk.
