25 mGy from a full-mouth examination when a leaded apron is used). Radiation causes cancer by modifying DNA. The most likely mechanism is radiation-induced gene mutation. Most investigators think that radiation acts as an initiator, that is, it induces a change in the cell so that it no longer undergoes terminal differentiation. Evidence also exists that radiation acts as a promoter, stimulating cells to multiply. Finally, it may also convert premalignant cells into malignant ones, for instance, conversion of proto-oncogenes to oncogenes.

RADIOLYSIS OF WATER Because water is the predominant molecule in biologic systems (about 70% by weight), it frequently participates in the interactions between x-ray photons and biologic molecules. A complex series of chemical changes occurs in water after exposure to ionizing radiation. Collectively these reactions result in the radiolysis of water. photon + H2O → Hi + OHi Although the radiolysis of water is complex, on balance water is largely converted to hydrogen and hydroxyl free radicals.
