A model for estimating the total absorbed dose to the thyroid in Swedish inhabitants following the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant accident: Implications for existing international estimates and future model applications.
The time-integrated absorbed dose to the thyroid gland in the years after a fallout event can indicate the potential excess number of thyroid cancers among young individuals after a radionuclide relea...
Radiation-induced genomic instability (GI) is hypothesized to persist after exposure and ultimately promote carcinogenesis. Based on the absorbed dose to the breast, an increased risk of developing br...
Internal Dose Assessment after 131I-Iodide Misadministration in a Patient With Incompletely Blocked Thyroid Uptake: Personalized Internal Dose Assessment by Estimating Individual-Specific Biokinetics.
In July 2017, a medical accident occurred in South Korea, in which I-iodide solution was misadministered to the wrong patient. Although the International Commission on Radiological Protection provided...
In DTC patients, 131-radioiodine therapy has routinely been used for many years for thyroid remnant ablation after thyroid surgery. To date, two different strategies can be used to achieve sufficient ...
In the aim to support treatments and diagnostics in Dentistry the most common radiographies are the periapical radiography and the dental panoramic. In the dental panoramic the X-ray beam is addressed...
Thyroid cancer patients who have undergone total thyroidectomy, postoperative iodine 131 treatment to ablation residual thyroid tissue, is the current clinical practice. The effective half...
The researchers investigated the rate of biochemical remission in patients without radioactive iodine therapy compared to patients with low dose radioactive iodine treatment in differentia...
Graves' orbitopathy (GO) is an autoimmune condition almost always associated with autoimmune thyroid disease, especially Graves' disease (GD). According to the most widely accepted model, ...
In 2004, we conducted a pilot randomized, wait list controlled, trial (RCT) of massage therapy for OA of the knee in 68 subjects. That study, supported by CDC grant SIP-14-00, revealed th...
In women who require thyroid hormone replacement medication, the investigators will compare 2 ways to adjust thyroid medication during pregnancy to determine superiority in maintaining opt...
A treatment schedule in which the total dose of radiation is divided into large doses.
Administration of the total dose of radiation (RADIATION DOSAGE) in parts, at timed intervals.
Mice selectively bred for hypersusceptibility to two-stage chemical skin carcinogenesis. They are also hypersusceptible to UV radiation tumorigenesis with single high-dose, but not chronic low-dose, exposures. SENCAR (SENsitive to CARcinogenesis) mice are used in research as an animal model for tumor production.
The amount of radiation energy that is deposited in a unit mass of material, such as tissues of plants or animal. In RADIOTHERAPY, radiation dosage is expressed in gray units (Gy). In RADIOLOGIC HEALTH, the dosage is expressed by the product of absorbed dose (Gy) and quality factor (a function of linear energy transfer), and is called radiation dose equivalent in sievert units (Sv).
The dose amount of poisonous or toxic substance or dose of ionizing radiation required to kill 50% of the tested population.
The thyroid is a butterfly-shaped gland in the neck, just above thecollarbone and is an endocrine gland that make hormones. These Thyroid hormones control the rate of many activities in the body, including how fast the body burns calories and how fast th...
