Relative Biological Effectiveness (RBE)
The relative biological effectiveness (RBE) of a radiation under test (e.g. a high-LET radiation) is defined as:
to give the same biological effect. The reference low-LET radiation is commonly 250 kVp X-rays or Co60γ-rays since these radiations are usually available whenever RBE is being evaluated.
