Organ radiation dose from a CT scan, calculated by CT dosimetry software, can be combined with cancer risk data to estimate cancer incidence resulting from CT exposure. We aim to determine to what extent the use of improved anatomical representation of the adult human body "phantom" in CT dosimetry software impacts estimates of radiation dose and cancer incidence, to inform comparison of past and future research.

The present study evaluated the organ doses, effective doses and conversion factors from the dose-area product to effective dose in pediatric diagnostic cardiac catheterization performed by in-phantom...
Waterborne releases to the Techa River from the Mayak plutonium facility in Russia during 1949-1956 resulted in significant doses to persons living downstream. The dosimetry system Techa River Dosimet...
The specific aim for the characterization of the lithium formate dosimetry system is to determine response and stability in a proton beam. The long-term goal for this investigation is an audit system ...
Biological dosimetry, based on the relationship between the absorbed dose after exposure to ionizing radiation and the frequency of scored aberrations, has been and continues to be an important tool f...
Gene expression (GE) assays have shown great potential for rapid individual radiation dose exposure assessment. The aim of the present study was to optimise GE-based biological dosimetry protocols for...
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...
The study purpose is to evaluate whether or not clinical characteristics of women with breast cancer can predict which position for radiation treatment, prone or supine, will be associated...
The purpose of the study is to investigate the safety, biodistribution, radiation dosimetry and pharmacokinetics of three intravenous escalating dose levels of Alpharadin.

This is a prospective, randomized study of total hip arthroplasty with and without the use of Radlink surgical positioning software. The investigators are interested in discovering whether...
Administration of the total dose of radiation (RADIATION DOSAGE) in parts, at timed intervals.
The dose amount of poisonous or toxic substance or dose of ionizing radiation required to kill 50% of the tested population.
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 relationship between the dose of administered radiation and the response of the organism or tissue to the radiation.
A treatment schedule in which the total dose of radiation is divided into large doses.
Cancer is not just one disease but many diseases. There are more than 100 different types of cancer. Most cancers are named for the organ or type of cell in which they start - for example, cancer that begins in the colon is called colon cancer; cancer th...
