Abstract
A correlation exists between chromosome breakage and radiation exposure so that counting chromosome fragments can provide a measure of the radiation dose to an organism. We describe our method for automatically counting prematurely condensed chromosome fragments from microscope images of the exploded nucleus. An alternative perhaps more promising non-imaging approach using flow karyotyping is also discussed. 1 .
