Consistency of The Mortality of Chronically-irradiated Beagles with the Linear No-Threshold Model

David J C MacKay

This note explores whether the lowest dose-rate mortality data from the beagle tissue archive might be consistent with the Linear No-Threshold (LNT) Model and might give evidence in favour of that model. I suggest that the answer may be `yes'; further statistical analysis will be required to establish how strongly the data favour LNT over alternative non-linear models.
