To quantify the effects of operator head posture and different types of protective eyewear on the eye lens dose to operators in interventional radiology (IR).
This article was published in the following journal.
Name: Medical physics
The reduction in the occupational dose limit of the eye lens has created the need for optimizing eye protection and dose assessment, in particular for interventional clinicians. Lead glasses are one o...
The aim of this study was to develop a head-chest phantom that could mimic the physique of a Japanese 0.5-year-old child and to investigate the current status of exposure dose in infant head computed ...
Some recently developed brain-dedicated positron emission tomography (PET) scanners measure subjects in a sitting position. Sitting enables PET scanning under more natural conditions for the subjects ...
To determine the influence of altered head or tongue posture on the upper airway (UA) volumes using MRI imaging based on a new objective and validated UA evaluation protocol.
Anthropometry and body composition are plausible influences on pediatric sagittal standing posture. Despite that, the relationship of anthropometrics since birth and body composition with individual p...
The "eSight Quality of Life and Efficacy Study" (eQUEST) is a prospective cohort study intended to demonstrate the functional vision and Quality of Life (QoL) improvement provided by eSigh...
The purpose of this study is to investigate the changes of spinal muscle activation in cervical, thoracic and lumbar segments for subjects with forward head posture (FHP) after application...
Radiation dose to interventional cardiologists performing transradial percutaneous coronary procedures is higher compared to those performing transfemoral exams. The radiation dose seems p...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the use of two instruments to measure changes in two ocular structures: 1) the anterior chamber depth (ACD) - measured using low coherence optical ...
No studies up to date has been evaluated the effect of FHP on TMJ proprioception.Therefore, this study will be the first one which aims to investigate the effect of FHP on TMJ propriocepti...
Specialized clothing or equipment worn for protection against health hazards. Personal Protective Equipment may include MASKS; RESPIRATORY PROTECTIVE DEVICES; HEAD PROTECTIVE DEVICES; EYE PROTECTIVE DEVICES; EAR PROTECTIVE DEVICES; PROTECTIVE CLOTHING; and protective footwear.
Posture while lying with the head lower than the rest of the body. Extended time in this position is associated with temporary physiologic disturbances.
Insertion of an artificial lens to replace the natural CRYSTALLINE LENS after CATARACT EXTRACTION or to supplement the natural lens which is left in place.
Rapidly decreasing response to a drug or physiologically active agent after administration of a few doses. In immunology, it is the rapid immunization against the effect of toxic doses of an extract or serum by previous injection of small doses. (Dorland, 28th ed)
The portion of the crystalline lens surrounding the nucleus and bound anteriorly by the epithelium and posteriorly by the capsule. It contains lens fibers and amorphous, intercellular substance.
Radiology is the branch of medicine that studies imaging of the body; X-ray (basic, angiography, barium swallows), ultrasound, MRI, CT and PET. These imaging techniques can be used to diagnose, but also to treat a range of conditions, by allowing visuali...
