  • A new device to expose cells to changing dose rates of ionising radiation. Brehwens, Karl; Bajinskis, Ainars; Staaf, Elina; Haghdoost, Siamak; Cederwall, Bo; Wojcik, Andrzej // Radiation Protection Dosimetry;Feb2012, Vol. 148 Issue 3, p366 

    In many exposure scenarios to ionising radiation, the dose rate is not constant. Despite this, most in vitro studies aimed at investigating the effects of ionising radiation are carried out exposing samples at constant dose rates. Consequently, very little data exist on the biological effects of...

    Dicentric analysis is considered as a ‘gold standard’ method for biological dosimetry. However, due to the radiation-induced mitotic delay or inability to reach mitosis of heavily damaged cells, the analysis of dicentrics is restricted to doses up to 4–5 Gy. For higher doses,...

    Interventional cardiology procedures can involve potentially high doses of radiation to the patients. Stochastic effects of ionising radiation - radiation-induced cancers in the long term - may occur. We analysed clinical characteristics and dosimetric data in a population of patients undergoing...

    Ionizing radiation can create stable free radicals in solids that can be quantified, in a non-destructive way, by Electron Spin Resonance (ESR) leading to a dosimetric technique. Ionizing radiation can change the valence of iron ions and the viscosity of certain polymers leading to changes in...

    The article provides information on dosimetric quantities, products of radiometric quantities and interaction coefficients. It presents the dosimetric quantities that describe the processes in which particle energy is converted and deposited in matter. Conversion of energy is the transfer of...
