(For similar studies by Ullrich et al., see also Radiation Research, 68, 115, 1976, and several other case studies in this chapter.)
As shown, pituitary cancer mortality was decreased nearly 20% at an exposure of 25 cGy, which was similar to results for ovarian cancer (20% decrease), mammary cancer (46% decrease), and uterine cancer (13% decrease). Needless to say, these are not the kind (or even the direction) of results predicted by the LNT.
