Summary of "Peak skin and eye lens radiation dose from brain perfusion CT: CTDI and Monte Carlo based estimations."

To quantify the eye lens, peak skin and brain doses associated with head CT perfusion exam by means of thermoluminescent dosimeters (TLDs) measurements in a cadaver and compare them to Monte Carlo (MC) dose estimations as well as to the CTDI.

MR Perfusion Methods in Patients With Suspected Recurrent High Grade Gliomas

Radiation therapy is an important adjunct in the treatment of patients with glioma, although a common side effect is radiation-induced injury of brain parenchyma. Unfortunately, convention...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.

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.
