- External occupational exposures in some NORM industries located at the South-West of Spain. Bolivar, J. P.; García-Tenorio, R. // AIP Conference Proceedings;8/7/2008, Vol. 1034 Issue 1, p364
Detailed mappings of the external exposures which can be received by the workers in two NORM industrial factories located at the South-West of Spain have been performed: one devoted to the production of phosphoric acid, and the other devoted to the production of titanium dioxide pigments. In...
- Nonlinearity of Radiation Health Effects. Pollycove, Myron; Calabrese, Edward J. // Environmental Health Perspectives Supplements;Feb98 Supplement 1, Vol. 106, p363
Presents a study in which observations of fundamental biologic cellular functions contradict the theoretical presumption based on biophysical concepts about the health consequences of radiation exposure and exclude a linear nonthreshold hypothesis dose-response relationship.
- Radiation Dose in the Selection of131 I or Surgical Treatment for Toxic Thyroid Adenoma. Gorma, Colum A.; Robertson, James S. // Annals of Internal Medicine;Jul78, Vol. 89 Issue 1, p85
Examines radiation dose in the selection of surgical treatment for toxic thyroid adenoma. Procedure used for computing the absorbed radiation dose in and near the thyroid nodule; Dose-effect modifying factors; Effects of dose-rate.

Several charts are presented that display data collected under a research work titled "Radiation and the Risk of Chronic Lymphocytic and Other Leukemias among Chornobyl Cleanup Workers," which also serve as supplemental study material for students studying about environmental health.
- Total Radiation Dose to the Patient Can Be Reduced by Controlling the Factors that Influence the Radiation Dose. Allareddy, Veeratrishul; Ellingsen, Jan-Eirik; Estafanous, Emad; Neppalli, Kumar; Oates, Thomas // International Journal of Oral & Maxillofacial Implants;2011, Vol. 26 Issue 1, p27
The article presents abstracts on dental topics which include the article "Dosimetry of 3 CBCT Devices for Oral and Maxillofacial Radiology: CB Mercuray, NewTom 3G and i-CAT," by J. B. Ludlow, L. E. Davies-Ludlow, W. B. Howerton, and others, "Effective Radiation Dose of ProMax 3D Cone-beam...
- Migration energy for the silicon self-interstitial. Hallen, Anders; Keskitalo, Niclas // Journal of Applied Physics;7/1/1999, Vol. 86 Issue 1, p214
Investigates the generation of vacancy-related point defects in low dose 1.3 MeV proton irradiated high purity silicon. Inverse dose rate effect; Results and discussion; Conclusions.
- The Occurrence of Hormesis in Plants and Algae. Cedergreen, Nina; Streibig, Jens C.; Kudsk, Per; Mathiassen, Solvejg K.; Duke, Stephen O. // Dose-Response;2007, Vol. 5 Issue 2, p150
This paper evaluated the frequency, magnitude and dose/concentration range of hormesis in four species: The aquatic plant Lemna minor, the micro-alga Pseudokirchneriella subcapitata and the two terrestrial plants Tripleurospermum inodorum and Stellaria media exposed to nine herbicides and one...
- Will Radiation-Induced Bystander Effects or Adaptive Responses Impact on the Shape of the Dose Response Relationships at Low Doses of Ionizing Radiation? Morgan, William F. // Dose-Response;2006, Vol. 4 Issue 4, p257
Radiation induced bystander effects and adaptive responses are two phenomena that modulate cellular responses to low doses of ionizing radiation. Bystander effects generally exaggerate the effects of low doses of radiation by eliciting detrimental effects in nonirradiated cells, thus making the...
- Radiation doses to the legs of radiologists performing interventional procedures: are they a cause for concern? Whitby M; Martin C J // British Journal of Radiology;May2003, Vol. 76 Issue 905, p321
The purpose of this study was to ascertain the magnitude and distribution of doses to the legs of radiologists when performing interventional procedures. LiF:Mg,Ti TLD100 chips were used to measure simultaneously doses to the lower limbs and, for comparison, the hands during 100 interventional...
