To analyze possible influencing factors on radiation exposure in pediatric chest CT using different approaches for radiation dose optimization and to determine major indicators for dose development...
The purpose of this paper is to evaluate the morbidity excess cancer risk (ECR) due to internal and external exposure to three category levels of natural radionuclides in soil like U, Th and K. Althou...
Although medical ionizing radiation (IR) has clear clinical benefits, it is an established carcinogen. This study estimates the number of new cancer cases in France in 2015 attributable to IR exposure...
Pediatric computed tomography scans: Weighing the risks and benefits: A new study suggests that computed tomography-related radiation may increase the risk of brain tumors, but the conversation, physicians say, is complex-and far from settled.
The association of hyperthyroidism with exposure to ionizing radiation is poorly understood. This study addresses the risk of hyperthyroidism in relation to incidental therapeutic radiation dose to th...
Patients with primary germ cell cancer of the testicles confined to the testis can avoid adjuvant treatment by entering a surveillance protocol. In the surveillance protocol, patients are ...
This is a pilot study with the primary aim being to identify the minimum number of scans and measurements necessary to determine accurately the absorbed radiation doses delivered from inte...
Before radiation treatment is given to treat chordomas, CT and MRI scans are used to create a three dimensional picture of the tumor using x-rays. The CT and MRI scans are used to determi...
Percutaneous Nephrolithotomy (PNL) was accepted as a treatment modality for large renal stones since 1980. Although radiation exposure during PNL is within the safe limits for expert endou...
RATIONALE: Imaging procedures, such as PET scans, may determine the extent of cancer and help doctors plan radiation therapy. Radiation therapy uses high-energy x-rays to kill tumor cells....
Organs which might be damaged during exposure to a toxin or to some form of therapy. It most frequently refers to healthy organs located in the radiation field during radiation therapy.
Tumors or cancer of the COLON or the RECTUM or both. Risk factors for colorectal cancer include chronic ULCERATIVE COLITIS; FAMILIAL POLYPOSIS COLI; exposure to ASBESTOS; and irradiation of the CERVIX UTERI.
Tumors, cancer or other neoplasms produced by exposure to ionizing or non-ionizing radiation.
The science concerned with problems of radiation protection relevant to reducing or preventing radiation exposure, and the effects of ionizing radiation on humans and their environment.
Devices that measure exposure to IONIZING RADIATION.
Pediatrics is the general medicine of childhood. Because of the developmental processes (psychological and physical) of childhood, the involvement of parents, and the social management of conditions at home and at school, pediatrics is a specialty. With ...
