  • etiology
  • When injury does occur it often happens that the patient does not suspect the etiology, the physician denies that radiation caused it, or the diagnosis of the cause is wrong, leading to a protracted course of uncertain health management. (springer.com)
  • Radon
  • Although still a genuine source of public health concern, radon-induced lung cancer is likely to decline substantially, driven by reductions in smoking rates. (gwu.edu)
  • Carcinoma
  • For carcinoma in situ or early-stage invasive glottic or supraglottic cancer, endoscopic surgical excision or radiation therapy are both equally effective with similar functional outcomes. (medscape.com)
  • Injury
  • Perhaps the concept of radiation injury from fluoroscopically guided pediatric intervention seems incongruous with the concept that dose rates are much lower in children since they are much smaller than adults. (springer.com)
  • Physicians are often unaware that fluoroscopic radiation can lead to radiation injury, resulting in lax radiation management practices. (springer.com)
  • A deterministic biological effect, such as radiation skin injury, is one that involves many cells before it can be expressed. (springer.com)
  • Tumor
  • Here we assessed the genetic control of stromal mediation of mammary tumor susceptibility to low dose ionizing radiation (LDIR) using backcrossed F1 into BALB/c (F1Bx) between cancer susceptible (BALB/c) and resistant (SPRET/EiJ) mouse strains. (nih.gov)
  • adverse effects
  • Well-balanced recommendations on sun protection have to ensure an adequate vitamin D status, thereby protecting people against adverse effects of strict sun protection without significantly increasing the risk of developing UV-induced skin cancer. (openrepository.com)
  • sarcoma
  • 4) They include documentation of the presence of a sarcoma within the radiation field, histologic confirmation of the sarcoma, documentation that the affected tissue was normal prior to irradiation, and a latency period of several years' duration. (thefreelibrary.com)
  • Because of the short l-year interval between the patient's radiation treatment and the development of the leiomyo-sarcoma at the same site, we initially questioned the first diagnosis. (thefreelibrary.com)
  • mechanisms
  • The effects of UV radiation are mediated via direct damage to cellular DNA in the skin and suppression of image surveillance mechanisms. (lenus.ie)
  • effects
  • and conducted research on effects of radiation during pregnancy. (biomedsearch.com)
  • Dermatologists and other clinicians have to recognize that there is convincing evidence that the protective effect of less intense solar UV radiation outweighs its mutagenic effects. (openrepository.com)
  • Effects of radiation in both the pediatric patient and the pediatric fluoroscopist are a realistic possibility that must be addressed by diligent radiation management. (springer.com)
