After nonuniform exposures the postradiation radiosensitivity (until it changes to stable hyperresistance) mainly correlated with changes in the cellular kinetics of critical tissues. This correlation was absent with hyperresistance after uniform and nonuniform exposures. This is probably associated with the new physiological status of the organism due to various compensatory and repair mechanisms.
