Radiation Tolerance .
Sensitivity, Radiation .
Tolerance, Radiation .
Radiation Sensitivities .
Radiation Tolerances .
Radiosensitivities .
Sensitivities, Radiation .
Tolerances, Radiation .
Radiation Sensitivity .
Radiosensitivity .
The ability of some cells or tissues to survive lethal doses of IONIZING RADIATION. Tolerance depends on the species, cell type, and physical and chemical variables, including RADIATION-PROTECTIVE AGENTS and RADIATION-SENSITIZING AGENTS. .
Radiation .
Radiations .
Emission or propagation of acoustic waves (SOUND), ELECTROMAGNETIC ENERGY waves (such as LIGHT; RADIO WAVES; GAMMA RAYS; or X-RAYS), or a stream of subatomic particles (such as ELECTRONS; NEUTRONS; PROTONS; or ALPHA PARTICLES). .
Thermotolerance .
Heat Adaptation .
Heat Tolerance .
Tolerance, Heat .
Tolerances, Heat .
The ability of an organism to reduce susceptibility to heat shock, and adapt to HOT TEMPERATURE. .
Drug Tolerance .
Drug Tolerances .
Tolerance, Drug .
Tolerances, Drug .
Progressive diminution of the susceptibility of a human or animal to the effects of a drug, resulting from its continued administration. It should be differentiated from DRUG RESISTANCE wherein an organism, disease, or tissue fails to respond to the intended effectiveness of a chemical or drug. It should also be differentiated from MAXIMUM TOLERATED DOSE and NO-OBSERVED-ADVERSE-EFFECT LEVEL. .
/radiotherapy .
/X-ray therapy .
/radiation therapy .
/radioisotope therapy .
Used with disease headings for the therapeutic use of ionizing and nonionizing radiation. It includes the use of radioisotope therapy. .
