Abstract : The levels of permissible doses in the healthy lung, spinal cord, skin and cardiac muscle have been determined by studying the literature sources on radiation injuries of the chest. Using diagrams of body sections at the level of the tumor, the author has placed limits on the presumed 'hot' areas of the dose field. An electronic computer was used to make the optimal selection of numerous possible decisions. The article gives examples of solutions for the GUT-Co-400 gamma-ray source at 'source-to-skin' distances of 35 and 60 cm. (Author)
