Research Advances in Radiation Cataract
Abstract: The lens of the eye is recognized as one of the most radiosensitive tissues in the human body, and it is known that cataracts can be induced by acute doses of less than 2 Gy of low-LET ionizing radiation and less than 5 Gy of pro- tracted radiation. Although much work has been carried out in this area, the exact mechanisms of radiation cataracto- genesis are still not fully understood. In-depth understanding of nuclear radiation cataract formation mechanism and dose threshold, will help to understand the whole process of radioactive nuclear cataract formation, and that will play an important role in promoting nuclear radiation cataract research and clinical treatment.
