Theoretical expressions, based on the Theory of Dual Radiation Action, are derived to calculate the effects of mixed radiation exposures on survival distributions. Temporal effects (such as recovery from sublethal injury) are explicitly included in the calculations. The results indicate the synergistic effect of sequential exposures due to the interaction between sublesions produced by the different types of radiation.
