Survival Rates of Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma Patients with and without Total- or Half-Body Low-Dose Irradiation
These are the 9-year survival data reported by Sakamoto et al. of 23 low-dose radiation patients and 94 control patients with similar histological tumor grades. The survival rate of the low-dose radiation patients is 84 percent, compared with 50 percent survival of the control patients. The 12-year survival rate of the low-dose patients remains at 84 percent.

Adapted from Sakamoto et al., 1997, J. Jpn. Soc. Ther. Radiol. Oncol., Vol. 9, pp. 161-175.
