Lesion Detection Assessment in the Liver: Standard vs Low Radiation Dose Using Varied Post-Processing Techniques

The goal of this clinical research study is to compare imaging software and 2 different radiation doses during a standard CT scan in order to "see" problems in the liver and still produce ...

The Role of CT-PET-MRI Image Fusion in Determining Radiation Treatment Volumes of Head-and-Neck Cancer Patients

Technical developments in radiation oncology are making it possible to deliver a prescribed radiation dose to radiation target volume with increasing accuracy. Therefore it is becoming ev...

Radiation Exposure Awareness From Patients Undergoing Nuclear Medicine Diagnostic Scans

This questionnaire is aimed at finding out if patients understand how much radiation they are being exposed to when they have a bone scan (99mTc-MDP)or an FDG PET/CT scan (18F-FDG PET/CT)....

CODP Imaging From a Dose Perspective

The noncontrast-enhanced chest computed tomography (CT) is an emerging diagnostical tool in patient with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). As shown in previous studies and poin...

Assessment of Treatment Response Using PET/CT Scanner - Non Hodgkin's Lymphoma

In this study the treatment process will be closely monitored using a novel imaging technology, a PET/CT scanner. PET stands for Positron Emission Tomography and in this case it will be c...

Estimation of the effects of medical diagnostic radiation exposure based on DNA damage.

X-rays are widely applied in the medical field for the diagnosis and treatment of diseases. Among the uses of X-rays in diagnosis, computed tomography (CT) has been established as one of the most info...

Low dose or low dose rate ionizing radiation-induced health effect in the human.

The extensive literature review on human epidemiological studies suggests that low dose ionizing radiation (LDIR) (≤100 mSv) or low dose rate ionizing radiation (LDRIR) (

Consideration of the usefulness of a size-specific dose estimate in pediatric CT examination.

Computed tomography (CT) has recently been utilized in various medical settings, and technological advances have resulted in its widespread use. However, medical radiation exposure associated with CT ...

Radiation Exposure to Staff and Patient During Videofluoroscopic Swallowing Studies and Recommended Protection Strategies.

Videofluoroscopic swallowing studies expose both the patients and the staff to ionising radiation. Although the radiation exposure is considered low compared to other diagnostic procedures, it is stil...


The purpose of this study was to investigate a practical patient dose index for assessing the patient organ dose from a cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) scan by comparing eight dose indices, i.e. ...

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.

A treatment schedule in which the total dose of radiation is divided into large doses.
