We studied the late radiation effect of a low radiation dose on the healthy mouse brain using MRI and histology. MRI enables the visualisation of early inflammation and late radiation necrosis. Histological analysis confirmed tissue damage and revealed that cellular (astrocytes, microglia) and molecular activation (ICAM-1, VCAM-1) as a result of neuro-inflammation precedes the formation of the necrotic core.
