    Occupational exposure to ionizing radiation causes chromosomal damage. Some of the damaged cells show a large number of aberrations such as dicentrics, polycentrics, rings and numerous acentric fragments. This paper describes an analysis of the frequency of dicentric chromosomes and acentric...
