Abstract


The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of low dose of X-ray on blood cells for women with cancer breast problems to study the radiation effects on the red blood cell, white blood cell, and platelet count for women with cancer breast problems, by used the hematology automatic CBC machine to determine the effect of X- ray on the blood cell in the three different times potential range among 40 kV, 80 kV, and 120 kV before and after irradiation with X-ray machine and to derive useful parameters for the evaluation of radiation effects. The results showed decrease in WBC, PLT and showed statistical significance differences in WBC and PLT. The values of WBC and PLT which decreased after irradiation with increasing the value of voltage of irradiation. Therefore, high significant differences (p = 0.001) were found in the platelet and WBC. However, no significant (p > 0.05) change in red blood count RBC was found in the range of 40 kV, 80 kV, and 120 kV.
