Radiation ProtectionRadiation Monitoring: The observation, either continuously or at intervals, of the levels of radiation in a given area, generally for the purpose of assuring that they have not exceeded prescribed amounts or, in case of radiation already present in the area, assuring that the levels have returned to those meeting acceptable safety standards.Radiation Dosage: 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).Radiation Injuries: Harmful effects of non-experimental exposure to ionizing or non-ionizing radiation in VERTEBRATES.Cosmic Radiation: High-energy radiation or particles from extraterrestrial space that strike the earth, its atmosphere, or spacecraft and may create secondary radiation as a result of collisions with the atmosphere or spacecraft.Radiography: Examination of any part of the body for diagnostic purposes by means of X-RAYS or GAMMA RAYS, recording the image on a sensitized surface (such as photographic film).Radiation-Protective Agents: Drugs used to protect against ionizing radiation. They are usually of interest for use in radiation therapy but have been considered for other, e.g. military, purposes.HistoryDose-Response Relationship, Radiation: The relationship between the dose of administered radiation and the response of the organism or tissue to the radiation.Radiation, Ionizing: ELECTROMAGNETIC RADIATION or particle radiation (high energy ELEMENTARY PARTICLES) capable of directly or indirectly producing IONS in its passage through matter.

(McGraw-Hill Dictionary of Chemical and Technical Terms, 4th ed)Health Planning Organizations: Organizations involved in all aspects of health planning activities.Radiation, Nonionizing: ELECTROMAGNETIC RADIATION or sonic radiation (SOUND WAVES) which does not produce IONS in matter through which it passes. The wavelengths of non-ionizing electromagentic radiation are generally longer than those of far ultraviolet radiation and range through the longest RADIO WAVES.Eye Protective Devices: Personal devices for protection of the eyes from impact, flying objects, glare, liquids, or injurious radiation.Radiologic Health: Health concerns associated with the effects of radiation on the environment and on public and personal health.Neoplasms, Radiation-Induced: Tumors, cancer or other neoplasms produced by exposure to ionizing or non-ionizing radiation.Technology, Radiologic: The application of scientific knowledge or technology to the field of radiology. The applications center mostly around x-ray or radioisotopes for diagnostic and therapeutic purposes but the technological applications of any radiation or radiologic procedure is within the scope of radiologic technology.Relative Biological Effectiveness: The ratio of radiation dosages required to produce identical change based on a formula comparing other types of radiation with that of gamma or roentgen rays.Radiation Tolerance: The ability of some cells or tissues to survive lethal doses of IONIZING RADIATION. Tolerance depends on the species, cell type, and physical and chemical variables, including RADIATION-PROTECTIVE AGENTS and RADIATION-SENSITIZING AGENTS.Radiation: Emission or propagation of acoustic waves (SOUND), ELECTROMAGNETIC ENERGY waves (such as LIGHT; RADIO WAVES; GAMMA RAYS; or X-RAYS), or a stream of subatomic particles (such as ELECTRONS; NEUTRONS; PROTONS; or ALPHA PARTICLES).Physical Processes: The forces and principles of action of matter and energy.Occupational Exposure: The exposure to potentially harmful chemical, physical, or biological agents that occurs as a result of one's occupation.Radioactive Hazard Release: Uncontrolled release of radioactive material from its containment. This either threatens to, or does, cause exposure to a radioactive hazard.

Phantoms are used very often in procedures employing or measuring x-irradiation or radioactive material to evaluate performance. Phantoms often have properties similar to human tissue. Water demonstrates absorbing properties similar to normal tissue, hence water-filled phantoms are used to map radiation levels. Phantoms are used also as teaching aids to simulate real conditions with x-ray or ultrasonic machines. (From Iturralde, Dictionary and Handbook of Nuclear Medicine and Clinical Imaging, 1990)Gamma Rays: Penetrating, high-energy electromagnetic radiation emitted from atomic nuclei during NUCLEAR DECAY. The range of wavelengths of emitted radiation is between 0.1 - 100 pm which overlaps the shorter, more energetic hard X-RAYS wavelengths. The distinction between gamma rays and X-rays is based on their radiation source.Background Radiation: Radiation from sources other than the source of interest.

The Radiation Protection Register is a central dose register for the surveillance of occupational radiation exposure. It has the task to control continuously the keeping of the body dose limits of all occupationally exposed persons in Germany and the issuing of radiation passbooks for itinerant workers. The Radiation Protection Register contributes to the international development of the occupational radiation protection as to the state of science and technology and to the harmonization of the occupational radiation protection monitoring in Europe.
As a result of the new Radiation Protection Act (Section 170 StrlSchG) there will be important changes of the data that have to be submitted to the Radiation Protection Register. In particular all individuals subject to registration in the Radiation Protection Register (occupationally exposed individuals and radiation passport holders) need a unique identification number: the Radiation Protection Register Number (SSR Number) starting from 31 December 2018. With the SSR Number, it will be easier and better possible to assign and balance the individual dose values from occupational radiation exposure in the BfS Radiation Protection Register. Moreover it substitutes the previous ...
Shortly after the accident, J-village, a soccer training facility located 20 km south of Fukushima Dai-ichi NPP, was utilised as a place for preparing workers for entry into the nuclear power station, where they put on their protective equipment and performed decontamination tests when leaving (figure 2).

FILE - In this April 15, 2011 file photo, Japanese police officers carry a body during a search and recovery operation for missing victims in the area devastated by the March 11 earthquake and tsunami in Namie near the tsunami-crippled Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear power plant in Fukushima Prefecture, northeastern Japan. Japanese nuclear regulators trusted that the reactors at Fukushima Dai-ichi were safe from the worst waves an earthquake could muster based on a single-page memo from the plant operator nearly a decade ago. The towering waves unleashed by the magnitude-9.0 earthquake on March 11 destroyed backup generators for several reactors cooling systems, and the nuclear cores in three reactors melted, sparking the worst atomic crisis the world since Chernobyl. Workers have yet to bring the plant under control more than two months later. (AP Photo/Hiro Komae, File) less ...
2014/06/11. Radiation levels in many areas of Fukushima Prefecture designated as zones where it is difficult for residents to return in the foreseeable future remain too high for residents to come back even after decontamination, the Environment Ministry said.. Areas near the Fukushima No. 1 Nuclear Power Plant where the annual radiation levels are over 50 millisieverts and are unlikely to fall below 20 millisieverts within five years after the March 2011 nuclear accident have been designated as zones where it is difficult for residents to return.. The ministry decontaminated six designated areas in the Fukushima Prefecture towns of Namie and Futaba between October last year and January this year as model projects. In the decontamination work, the surface of soil was stripped away, soil was cleaned with high-pressure water and weeds were removed.. As a result, the average airborne radiation levels in ...
By Fan-Yee Suen, CTV News More than two years after a massive earthquake and tsunami destroyed the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear power plant in Japan, public confidence in the plants operators continues to sink as fresh leaks are being discovered in the plants defence system.
The devastating tsunami triggered by the Great East Japan Earthquake on March 11, 2011 inundated the Fukushima Dai-ichi Nuclear Power Plant (FDNPP) resulting in a loss of cooling and a series of explosions releasing the largest quantity of radioactive material into the atmosphere since the Chernobyl nuclear accident. Although 80% of the radionuclides from this accidental release were transported over the Pacific Ocean, 20% were deposited over Japanese coastal catchments that are subject to frequent typhoons. Among the radioisotopes released during the FDNPP accident, radiocesium (134Cs and137Cs) is considered the most serious current and future health risk for the local population. ...

ABSTRACT. Several countries are developing and deploying SFRs even after the accident at Tokyo Electric Power Companys Fukushima Dai-Ichi Nuclear Power Station. However, the Fukushima accident prompted all countries to redefine the fast reactor programs. The drastic safety enhancement is the most important issue to be established. In light of this situation, key essence of the safety improvement is reviewed in this paper by referring the achievements of the recent International Workshop on Prevention and Mitigation of Severe Accidents in SFRs which was held by Japan Atomic Energy Agency (JAEA) in cooperation with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) in June, 2012 and the findings published in the past journals including those of the International Conference on Fast Reactor and Related Fuel Cycles (FR09) held by IAEA in December, 2009.. 1. INTRODUCTION. Nuclear reactors have been developed since 1950s in various countries because they can deliver huge amounts of energy to both emerging ...
At present, Taiwan is embroiled in a debate over a referendum to decide whether to complete the Fourth Nuclear Power Plant in New Taipei Citys (新北市) Gongliao District (貢寮), which is currently under construction. The debate is focused on the risks of using nuclear power on an earthquake-prone island - with the 2011 disaster at the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear power plant in Japan being used as a point of reference - and the supposed costs of moving away from nuclear energy in terms of electricity prices and the reliability of the nations power supply. The nuclear debate has also become side-tracked by a longstanding debate over the legalities of the referendum process and whether the government can be trusted to frame referendum questions fairly.
TOKYO - The second major typhoon in a month made its way out of Japan on Thursday after triggering landslides and floods that left at least 16 people dead or missing but sparing a crippled nuclear plant from major damage.. There had been concerns that Typhoon Roke could pose more problems for the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear power plant, which was sent into meltdown by the March 11 earthquake and tsunami, but officials said the plant weathered the storm without major incident.. Hiroki Kawamata, spokesman for plant operator Tokyo Electric Power Co., said several cameras set up to monitor the plant were damaged, but there had been no further leaks of radioactive water or material into the environment.. "We are seeing no problems so far," he said.. Police and local media reported 16 people dead or missing because of the storm, most swept away by rivers swollen with rains in the southern and central regions. One person died in a landslide in northern Iwate prefecture and two people were swept away in ...

We estimate the contamination risks from the atmospheric dispersion of radionuclides released by severe nuclear power plant accidents using the ECHAM/Modular Earth Submodel System (MESSy) atmospheric chemistry (EMAC) atmospheric chemistry-general circulation model at high resolution (50 km). We present an overview of global risks and also a case study of nuclear power plants that are currently under construction, planned and proposed in the Eastern Mediterranean and Middle East, a region prone to earthquakes. We implemented continuous emissions from each location, making the simplifying assumption that all potential accidents release the same amount of radioactivity. We simulated atmospheric transport and decay, focusing on 137Cs and 131I as proxies for particulate and gaseous radionuclides, respectively. We present risk maps for potential surface layer concentrations, deposition and doses to humans from the inhalation exposure of 131I. The estimated risks exhibit seasonal variability, with the highest

I cant believe my luck," said Oikawa, explaining that shed stumbled on a farmer selling eggs while hunting for somewhere to charge her mobile phone. She doesnt have any electricity at home.. Eight days after a 9.0-magnitude earthquake sent a merciless wall of water crashing onto Japans northeastern coast, a city once noted for its jazz festival and joie de vivre is reduced to foraging for basic necessities.. The descent of a vibrant metropolis toward a state of simple survival has helped numb the population to a further agony. Many here are too preoccupied with day-to-day needs to focus on unseen dangers leaking from the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear power plant down the coast.. "Instead of worrying about things I cant see, I worry about things I can see," said Oikawa, showing off her eggs.. As the major city nearest the crippled power station, Sendai is not blase about the potential risk, just distracted. Weather reports on television are watched anxiously to see which way the winds will be ...
The coastal belt of Karunagappally, Kerala, India, is known for high background radiation (HBR) from thorium-containing monazite sand. In coastal panchayats, median outdoor radiation levels are more than 4 mGy y-1 and, in certain locations on the coast, it is as high as 70 mGy y-1. Although HBR has been repeatedly shown to increase the frequency of chromosome aberrations in the circulating lymphocytes of exposed persons, its carcinogenic effect is still unproven. A cohort of all 385,103 residents in Karunagappally was established in the 1990s to evaluate health effects of HBR. Based on radiation level measurements, a radiation subcohort consisting of 173,067 residents was chosen. Cancer incidence in this subcohort aged 30-84 y (N = 69,958) was analyzed. Cumulative radiation dose for each individual was estimated based on ...
To date, all attempts to model or accurately measure the core damage and radiation releases from the crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant in the wake of the March 11th earthquake and tsunami have proved incomplete, unreliable, and admittedly unable to accurately replicate the sequence of events, largely due to the lack of information available […]. Still, much has been said about the radioactive releases from Fukushima Daiichi, but one thing remains certain; anyone who attempts to make definitive statements as to minimize the size or scale of the release can do no better than to offer some rudimentary stab at the issue, as the data released to date is woefully insufficient. What little recorded data has been published and peer reviewed has yielded some startling results, which may infer some insight into why so many pro-nuclear voices have been so quick and adamant in their downplaying of the disaster. […]. More recent studies have estimated that some 27.1 PBq of ...

To evaluate the biological effect of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster, relative differences in the growth of wild Japanese monkeys (Macaca fuscata) were measured before and after the disaster of 2011 in Fukushima City, which is approximately 70 km from the nuclear power plant, by performing external measurements on fetuses collected from 2008 to 2016. Comparing the relative growth of 31 fetuses conceived prior to the disaster and 31 fetuses conceived after the disaster in terms of body weight and head size (product of the occipital frontal diameter and biparietal diameter) to crown-rump length ratio revealed that body weight growth rate and proportional head size were significantly lower in fetuses conceived after the disaster. No significant difference was observed in nutritional indicators for the fetuses mothers. Accordingly, radiation exposure could be one factor contributed to the observed growth delay in this study.. Introduction. The Fukushima Daiichi nuclear ...
Scientists have issued a dire warning that the damaged Fukushima nuclear plant is at risk of a massive new earthquake.. Research using data from more than 6,000 recent tremors has found that last Marchs disaster has reactivated a seismic fault practically beneath the power station.. Now scientists are telling Japanese authorities to urgently shore up the damaged reactor in expectation of more massive quakes. Fukushima Daiichi was the scene of the worst nuclear disasters in history after it was damaged by the March 11, 2011, magnitude 9 earthquake and following tsunami.. But this tremors epicentre was about 100 miles from the site, off the coast of Japan, and a much closer one could occur in the future at Fukushima.. Dapeng Zhao, geophysics professor at Japans Tohoku University, said: There are a few active faults in the nuclear power plant area, and our results show the existence of similar structural anomalies under both the Iwaki and the Fukushima Daiichi areas.. Given that a large ...
Spacecraft, both manned and unmanned, must cope with the high radiation environment of outerspace. Radiation emitted by the Sun and other galactic sources, and trapped in radiation "belts" is more dangerous and hundreds of times more intense than radiation sources such as medical X-rays or normal cosmic radiation usually experienced on Earth.[24] When the intensely ionizing particles found in space strike human tissue, it can result in cell damage and may eventually lead to cancer.. The usual method for radiation protection is material shielding by spacecraft and equipment structures (usually aluminium), possibly augmented by polyethylene in human spaceflight where the main concern is high energy protons and cosmic ray ions. On unmanned spacecraft in high electron dose environments such as ...

THIS IS AN ACTIVE PETITION ~We are in the midst of an ongoing and seemingly incomprehensible radiation crisis at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power complex in Japan. Some are saying "this is not Chernobyl" and for that matter it may turn out to be worse. Greenpeace released a report on March 25, 2011 which ranks the radiation leaking from Fukushima to date to be at Level 7 on the International Nuclear Event Scale (INES) which is the the highest level and the same as Chernobyl after that catastrophe. We must remember that this crisis is far from over and will have serious health effects for many innocent people, with young children and the elderly being particularly vulnerable. The National Academies of Science issued a 2006 report on radiation exposure that concluded that even low levels of radiation can cause human health problems, including cancer and ...

Hundreds of studies have already demonstrated the severely deleterious health effects of living near radio and microwave broadcast towers. Also, review the information on irrelevance of present SAR standards. The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) itself acknowledges that current Federal Communications Commission (FCC) radiation protection standards are inadequate and do not account for all possible harmful effects of RFR, in particular the non-thermal effects that are of particular relevance to the radiation utilized by WiFi. In a July 16, 2002 letter from Norbert Hankin of the EPAs Center for Science and Risk Assessment, Radiation Protection Division to Janet Newton, President of The EMR Network, Mr. Hankin writes: "The FCCs current exposure guidelines, as well as those of ...
OBJECTIVE: To compare radiation doses delivered at prospectively ECG-triggered sequential- (SEQ), retrospectively ECG-gated spiral- (RETRO) and prospectively ECG-triggered high-pitch spiral- (HP) computed tomography coronary angiography (CTCA) protocols, as well as catheter coronary angiography (CCA) using an anthropomorphic phantom. MATERIALS AND METHODS: An anthropomorphic Alderson phantom equipped with 50 thermoluminescent dosimeters (TLDs) was scanned using different CTCA protocols and an uncomplicated diagnostic CCA examination was simulated. Absorbed doses were experimentally determined and effective doses calculated using the dose-length product (DLP) for CTCA and the dose-area product (DAP) for CCA, as well as according to International Commission on Radiation Protection (ICRP) publications 60 and 103. RESULTS: Effective organ doses were significantly lower for HP protocols (100kV: 0.17±0.26mSv; 120kV: 0.26±0.39mSv) ...

September 22, 2017-Gerard Goh, MBBS, FRANZCR, EBIR, and colleagues presented data at CIRSE 2017, the annual congress of the Cardiovascular and Interventional Radiological Society of Europe held September 16-20 in Copenhagen, Denmark, that showed many physicians and staff performing interventional procedures could exceed recommended ocular radiation dose limits if not wearing protective glasses. Dr. Goh is affiliated with The Alfred Hospital and Monash University in Melbourne, Australia.. The Alfred Hospitals interventional radiology (IR) group sought to prospectively evaluate radiation exposure to the lens of the eye among its operators over a 12-month period and compare it with the yearly dose limits established by the 2013 International Common on Radiation Protections recommended standards. To do so, they placed thermoluminescent dosimeters both outside and behind the lead glasses worn by ...
A boy inside the local day nursing school soramame is curious about what Greenpeace staff Stan Vincent is doing just outside of the building. Stan Vincent checks radiation levels of the playground (where they found high radiation result). Since the 11th of March, kids have been playing only inside all day instead of playing outside at the playground due to nuclear crisis. There were originally 24 kids at the school, but most of them have evacuated to other prefectures and only 7 left. Fukushima Prefecture. 05/06/2011
The National Radiological Protection Board (NRBP) has recently revised the radiation dose for typical x ray examinations. For example, an abdominal/pelvic CT scan would typically lead to an effective dose of 10 mSv, which is an equivalent of 4.5 years of natural background radiation.8 This radiation exposure was estimated to carry a 1:2000 risk of fatal cancer in the 16-69 year old patient population (personal communication from NRPB). For older patients, this may be halved but for younger patients increased up to fivefold. Put another way, this is equal to 250-300 fatal cancers for every 1 million abdominal/pelvic CT scans.. These values are calculated using a probability coefficient, which was developed by the International Commission on Radiological Protection (ICRP), based on historical epidemiological cohorts and other research.9 It is worth noting that the cancer risk ...

Radioactive cesium from the 2011 Fukushima disaster is still being detected in citrus and other plants as far away as Florida, according to a report sent to the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC). In March 2011, multiple nuclear meltdowns took place at the Fukushima Daiichi plant in Japan. The explosions ejected massive amounts of radioactive material into the environment, most notably radioactive cesium isotopes. In the weeks after the disaster, winds carried airborne radionuclides to every corner of the globe. Most of the radioactivity, however, settled into the Pacific Ocean.The report is Duke Energy Floridas Annual Radiological Environmental Operating Report to U.S. NRC, dated May 5. It notes that immediately following the Fukushima disaster, radioactive iodine and cesium from the plant were detected in Florida vegetation. "The Japanese event also affected broad leaf vegetation sample media throughout the year as long-lived radionuclides (Cs-137) were released at Fukushima multiple ...

Nuclear and radiological mass-casualty incidents are significant risks to deployed military personnel and civilian populations. Disasters such as those at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant and the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant, emphasize the need for available and effective therapeutic options to mitigate and treat the damaging effects of exposure to lethal doses of ionizing radiation. There are currently more than 100 countries without adequate monitoring systems or regulatory control in place to discourage terrorist groups from obtaining radioactive material, detonating a dirty bomb, or using radiological dispersal devices. In the worst-case scenario, an improvised nuclear device, radiological dispersal device or dirty bomb would be detonated in a densely populated city, inciting not only panic, fear, injury and death but also an array of other medical issues arising from the blast, radioactive fallout and extreme heat. The large number of ...

Infant girls exposed in the worst-affected area also have a 6 percent higher risk of breast cancer, and a 4 percent increase in the risk of developing any solid cancer, according to the report.. A study by Stanford University scientists last year found that radiation from the Fukushima nuclear plant may cause as many as 1,300 cancer deaths globally and as many as 2,500 cases of cancer, mostly in Japan. The WHO said it didnt have estimates on the number of people affected by radiation.. […]. The nuclear plant may have emitted about 900,000 terabecquerels of radiation into the air at the height of the disaster, Tepco said in May. The total radiation release at the 1986 Chernobyl accident in Ukraine was estimated to be about 5.2 million terabecquerels..

This paper is the first in a series of invited perspectives by pioneers of nuclear medicine imaging and physics. A medical physicist and a nuclear medicine physician each take a backward and a forward look at the contributions of physics to nuclear medicine. Here, we provide a forward look from the medical physicists perspective. The author examines a number of developments in nuclear medicine and discusses the ways in which physics has contributed to these. Future developments are postulated in the context of an increasingly personalised approach to medical diagnostics and therapies. A skill set for the next generation of medical physicists in nuclear medicine is proposed in the context of the increasing complexity of Molecular Imaging in the next three decades. The author sees a shift away from traditional roles in instrumentation QA to more innovative approaches in understanding radiobiology and human disease.
Certified Health Physicist is an official title granted by the American Board of Health Physics, the certification board for health physicists in the United States. A Certified Health Physicist is designated by the letters CHP or DABHP after his or her name. A certification by the ABHP is not a license to practice and does not confer any legal qualification to practice health physics. However, the certification is well respected and indicates a high level of achievement by those who obtain it. Certified Health Physicists are plenary or emeritus members of the American Academy of Health Physics (AAHP). In 2015, the AAHP web site listed over 1500 plenary and emeritus members.

While no direct words to the effect were used, the report warranted the implementation of Section 4 of the Patents Act which read with the strict wording of section 20 of the atomic energy act makes it crystal clear that the intention of the legislature was not to allow for patenting of inventions relating to atomic energy. Even if a patent is granted for an invention relating to atomic energy, the same may be revoked under Section 65 of the Patents Act.. It is also pertinent to note that presently, Indian law makes no distinction between atomic weapons and atomic energy. The security reason of the country appears to be the rationale for disallowing patents for atomic weapons.. According to the Atomic Energy Act, "atomic energy" means energy released from atomic nuclei as a result of any process including the fission and fusion processes. Under this Act, "prescribed substances" means any substance including any mineral which the Central Government may, by notification, prescribe, being a ...
ANOTHER WAR CRIME? IRAQI CITIES HOT WITH DEPLETED URANIUM. Download pdf brochure format. By Sara Flounders August 18, 2003--Has U.S. use of depleted-uranium weapons turned Iraq into a radioactive danger area for both Iraqis and occupation troops? This question has already had serious consequences. In hot spots in downtown Baghdad, reporters have measured radiation levels that are 1,000 to 1,900 times higher than normal background radiation levels. It has also opened a debate in the Netherlands parliament and media as 1,100 Dutch troops in Kuwait prepare to enter Iraq as part of the U.S./British-led occupation forces. The Dutch are concerned about the danger of radioactive poisoning and radiation sickness in Iraq. Washington has assured the Dutch government that it used no DU weapons near Al-Samawah, the town where Dutch troops will be stationed. But Dutch journalists and anti-war forces have already found ...
Quality control (QC) in medical imaging is an ongoing process and not just a series of infrequent evaluations of medical imaging equipment. The QC process involves designing and implementing a QC program, collecting and analyzing data, investigating results that are outside the acceptance levels for the QC program, and taking corrective action to bring these results back to an acceptable level. The QC process involves key personnel in the imaging department, including the radiologist, radiologic technologist, and the qualified medical physicist (QMP). The QMP performs detailed equipment evaluations and helps with oversight of the QC program, the radiologic technologist is responsible for the day-to-day operation of the QC program. The continued need for ongoing QC in digital radiography has been highlighted in the scientific literature. The charge of this task group was to recommend consistency tests designed to be performed by a medical physicist or a radiologic technologist under the direction ...

Introduction: Coronary computed tomography angiography (CTA) is increasingly used for the non-invasive evaluation of symptomatic coronary artery disease (CAD). However, potential risks of coronary CTA include exposure to ionizing radiation. Lowering tube voltage can significantly decrease radiation dose, but the effects on image quality are unknown.. Hypothesis: To determine if a very low tube voltage of 80kVp is feasible to further minimize radiation dose and maintain diagnostic image quality of coronary CTA.. Methods: We analyzed 191 consecutive patients with low-intermediate probability of CAD, who were evaluated for acute chest pain with 64-multidetector row coronary CTA (Lightspeed, GE Medical). Tube voltage protocols used either standard 120kVp, low 100kVp, or very low 80kVp, depending on physician discretion. Primary end points were radiation ...
We thank Dr Rafnsson for valuable comments on our paper. Rafnsson finds our policy implications surprising. In the light of present evidence, we do not find further measures justified for reducing radiation exposure among cabin crew. The justification for this view is the fact that exposure limits common for all radiation workers also apply for the cabin crew. Dose monitoring indicates that the cosmic radiation doses are within the exposure limits. We see no reason to depart from the general radiation protection principles.. Cohort studies have shown an excess risk of breast cancer in cabin crew, in particular among those with long employment, with 1.5-3.4-fold incidence compared with the general population.1 Nevertheless, the radiation doses received are low and the expected effect based on previous literature is very ...
Dr. Greenhalgh earned his A.B. degree in physics from Princeton University in 1976, where as a senior he worked at the Princeton Cyclotron in experimental nuclear physics under the direction of Stuart J. Freedman. He completed his Ph.D. at Stanford University in 1981, where he studied under Mel Schwartz (a 1988 Nobel laureate in physics), specializing in experimental elementary particle physics. In 1981, Dr. Greenhalgh returned to Princeton as a post-doctoral research associate and later became a Lecturer in the Department of Physics. In 1985, he joined FONAR Corp. as a Research Scientist - Engineer and since 1987 has served as FONARs Director of MRI Applications Research. In that capacity, Dr. Greenhalgh has had broad responsibilities in pulse sequence programming and software development, field service, and clinical applications. He is now very happy to bring his many years of imaging expertise to bear as a consulting physicist for West Physics.. Dr. Greenhalgh is originally from New City, ...

Thin layers of indium tin oxide are widely used as transparent coatings and electrodes in solar energy cells1, flat-panel displays2,3, antireflection coatings4, radiation protection5 and lithium-ion battery materials6, because they have the characteristics of low resistivity, strong absorption at ultraviolet wavelengths, high transmission in the visible7, high reflectivity in the far-infrared and strong attenuation in the microwave region. However, there is often a trade-off between electrical conductivity and transparency at visible wavelengths for indium tin oxide and other transparent conducting oxides. Here, we report the growth of layers of indium tin oxide nanowires that show optimum electronic and photonic properties and demonstrate their use as fully transparent top contacts in the visible to near-infrared region for light-emitting devices. Indium tin oxide (ITO) is widely used as a transparent conducting coating, but it has been difficult to combine ...

Geoffrey Landis. For any space mission, radiation dosages are an important factor. Probably the most hazardous of these radiations for the Reference Mission is the possibility of a large solar flare while the crew are away from LEO.. Although this will only be an issue for the first mission (the telerobot will have the habitat buried before the next crew arrives), it is nonetheless a consideration. The summer 2003 working launch date will be just after the height of the 11-year sunspot cycle, and the possibility of an "anomalously large" flare event is that much higher.. The August 1972 flare delivered unshielded radiation doses of 45 REM per hour, and lasted for 15.5 hours. Storms with such lethal particle fluxes are expected to appear two days out of every twenty years. (Ref: J.R. Letaw, R. Silberberg and C.H. Tsao, "Natural Radiation Hazards on the Manned Mars Mission," ...
