We study within the light-cone path integral approach [10zaZ1]
the effect of the induced gluon radiation
on high-pT hadrons in high-energy heavy-ion collisions.
The induced gluon spectrum is represented in a new form which
is convenient for numerical simulations. For the first time
computations are performed with a realistic parametrization
of the dipole cross section.
The results are in reasonable agreement with
suppression of high-pT hadrons in Au+Au collisions
at GeV observed at RHIC.
