To compare and contrast the American Society for Radiation Oncology (ASTRO) Model Policies (MPs) for intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT), stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS), stereotactic ablative radiotherapy (SABR), and proton beam therapy (PBT) with the coverage policies constructed by five of the largest publicly-available commercial insurers throughout the United States (Aetna, Anthem, Cigna, Humana, United).

Far-Field Radiation of Three-Dimensional Plasmonic Gold Tapers near Apexes.

Three-dimensional plasmonic gold tapers are widely used structures in nano-optics for achieving imaging at the nanometer scale, enhanced spectroscopy, confined light sources, and ultrafast photoelectron emission. To understand their radiation properties further, especially in the proximity of the apex at the nanoscale, we employ cathodoluminescence spectroscopy with high spatial and energy resolution. The plasmon-induced radiation in the visible spectral range from three-dimensional gold tapers with opening...

Intensity modulated radiation therapy following lumpectomy in early-stage breast cancer: Patterns of use and cost consequences among Medicare beneficiaries.

In 2013, the American Society for Radiation Oncology (ASTRO) issued a Choosing Wisely recommendation against the routine use of intensity modulated radiotherapy (IMRT) for whole breast irradiation. We evaluated IMRT use and subsequent impact on Medicare expenditure in the period immediately preceding this recommendation to provide a baseline measure of IMRT use and associated cost consequences.

Catalytically Active Peptide-Gold Nanoparticle Conjugates: Prospecting for Artificial Enzymes.

The self-assembly of peptides onto the surface of gold nanoparticles has emerged as a promising strategy towards the creation of artificial enzymes. The resulting high local peptide density surrounding the nanoparticle leads to cooperative and synergistic effects, which result in rate accelerations and distinct catalytic properties compared to the unconjugated peptide. This minireview summarizes contributions to and progress made in the field of catalytically active peptide-gold nanoparticle conjugates. The...

The earliest experimental convulsions by Joseph Priestley in 1766 friendship with Benjamin Franklin.

In 1766, Joseph Priestley (1733-1804) was the first to systematically demonstrate the universal convulsive effect of an electrical discharge applied to the head of all the several species studied. We here republish his overlooked experiments, which often resulted in death, and which ante date the scientific studies of the electrical functions of the brain, the role of "discharges" in seizures, and experimental epilepsy by about a century. Priestley's studies of electricity were influenced by those of Benjam...

Intercomparison of dose enhancement ratio and secondary electron spectra for gold nanoparticles irradiated by X-rays calculated using multiple Monte Carlo simulation codes.

Targeted radiation therapy has seen an increased interest in the past decade. In vitro and in vivo experiments showed enhanced radiation doses due to gold nanoparticles (GNPs) to tumors in mice and demonstrated a high potential for clinical application. However, finding a functionalized molecular formulation for actively targeting GNPs in tumor cells is challenging. Furthermore, the enhanced energy deposition by secondary electrons around GNPs, particularly by short-ranged Auger electrons is difficult to me...

Physical dosimetry reconstructions of significant radiation exposure at an industrial accelerator facility in Tianjin (China).

The goal of this thesis is to estimate the physical radiation doses for two victims who were accidently exposed to an industrial electron beam at an industrial accelerator facility on 7 July 7 2016 in Tianjin, China. On the basis of the radiation source parameters, irradiation situation and irradiation time, physical dose reconstruction was carried out at the accident site by using a Bottle-Manikin-Absorption (BOMAB) phantom and an Alderson Radiation Therapy (ART) phantom. With thermoluminscent dosimeters (...

Contribution of the acoustic waves to near-field heat transfer.

Calculations of the radiative and phonon heat transfer between metals in an extreme near field in presence of electrostatic potential difference are given. Potential difference leads to a coupling between the radiation field and acoustic waves in solid, as a result of which the heat flux between two gold plates associated with $p$ -polarized electromagnetic waves increases by many orders of magnitude as the potential difference varies from 0 to 10V. The radiative heat transfer is compared with the phonon he...

Ionizing radiation for maternal medical indications.

Ionizing radiation should be considered an avoidable exposure although all pregnant women receive some radiation from their environment. The potential effect of ionizing radiation on the fetus is determined by the dose and the timing of the exposure with growing interest in the potential risks of transgenerational effects of radiation as an epigenetic phenomenon. High dosage exposure is very unlikely in routine situations such as occupational, diagnostic or therapeutic exposures. Individual diagnostic radia...
