The objective of this research was to measure cellular effects of ultrahigh dose rate X rays associated with high-power microwave devices. The intent was to detect differences in effect of ultrahigh dose-rate X rays compared to conventional dose-rate X rays at equivalent total doses. Cell survivability was used as the measure. No differences were noted until a dose of 4 Gray or greater was achieved. Keywords High dose rate radiation Electron bremsstrahlung.
