Patient and Surgeon Radiation Exposure: Comparison of Standard and Mini-C-Arm Fluoroscopy
- Radiation management and credentialing of fluoroscopy users. Archer, Benjamin R. // Pediatric Radiology;Sep2006 Supplement, Vol. 36, p182
During the last 15 years, developments in X-ray technologies have substantially improved the ability of practitioners to treat patients using fluoroscopically guided interventional techniques. Many of these procedures require a greater use of fluoroscopy and more recording of images. This...
- radiation injury, ionizing. // Taber's Cyclopedic Medical Dictionary (2009);2009, Issue 21, p1962
An encyclopedia entry for "radiation injury, ionizing," which refers to cell and intracellular molecule damage caused by x-rays, gamma rays or other sources of radioactive energy, is presented.
- Image Conscious. Meyer, Charles R. // Minnesota Medicine;Dec2009, Vol. 92 Issue 12, p4
An introduction to the journal is presented in which the editor discusses an article on fellowship doctors doing the work of surgeons, the carcinogenic effects of X-rays, and the possible danger of prenatal ultrasound to the fetus.
- Untitled. Rivers, Francis // Nutrition Health Review: The Consumer's Medical Journal;1993, Issue 66, p4
Discusses several medical news and health issues affecting man. Health effects of x-ray; Studies supporting the relationship between cancer and electromagnetic radiation; Effects of radiation on epileptic seizures. INSET: Measuring device available..
- What are the Intracellular Targets and Intratissue Target Cells for Radiation Effects? Hamada, Nobuyuki // Radiation Research;Jan2014, Vol. 181 Issue 1, p9
Exactly a century after RÃ¶ntgen's discovery of X rays, I entered a university to major in radiological sciences. At that time, I felt that, despite extensive use and indispensable roles of ionizing radiation in medicine and industry, many fascinating questions have yet to be answered...
- Microbeams in radiation biology: review and critical comparison. Prise, K. M.; Schettino, G. // Radiation Protection Dosimetry;Feb2011, Vol. 143 Issue 2-4, p335
Microbeams have undergone a renaissance since their introduction and early use in the mid-60s. Recent advances in imaging, software and beam delivery have allowed rapid technological developments in microbeams for use in a range of experimental studies. Microbeams allow the effects of single...
- Effects of Low Level X Radiation on the Mitotic Index of Hamster Basal Epithelial Cells In Vivo. LURIE, ALAN // Journal of Dental Research;Nov1969, Vol. 48 Issue 6, p1049
Chinese hamster cheek pouches were exposed to low doses of X radiation and to two doses of a metaphase arrester, vinblastine sulfate, in separate experiments. There was no significant decrease in the mitotic indexes of the irradiated animals. The higher vinblastine dose proved to be...
- radiation hazards. Peters, Michael // BMA A-Z Family Medical Encyclopedia;2004, p644
An encyclopedia entry for "radiation hazards" is presented. It refers to hazards brought about by radiation as a result of either external sources of radiation, such as X-rays or gamma rays. Limiting exposure to radiation is cited as a way to control radiation damage. Shielding reproductive...
- The Genetic Risk in Mice from Radiation: An Estimate of the Mutation Induction Rate per Genome. Asakawa, Jun-ichi; Kodaira, Mieko; Cullings, Harry M.; Katayama, Hiroaki; Nakamura, Nori // Radiation Research;Mar2013, Vol. 179 Issue 3, p293
Restriction Landmark Genome Scanning (RLGS) is a method that uses end-labeled 32P NotI sites that are mostly associated with coding genes to visualizes thousands of DNA fragments as spots in two-dimensional autoradiograms. This approach allows direct detection of autosomal deletions as spots...
