AU - Belderbos, José S.A.. AU - Kepka, Lucyna. AU - Kong, Feng Ming. AU - Martel, Mary K.. AU - Videtic, Gregory M.M.. AU - Jeremic, Branislav. PY - 2008/10/1. Y1 - 2008/10/1. N2 - Lymphatic spread is an important pathway of progression in non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC), along with local spread and distant metastasis. The probability of lymph node (LN) involvement is dependent on the site of the primary tumor, stage, and histology. Elective nodal irradiation (ENI) is the irradiation of clinical and radiological uninvolved LN to account for microscopic tumor invasion in these LNs because we have not been able to determine the extent of LN spread accurately. The clinical value of ENI is uncertain. The impact of ENI is dependent on many (staging-, treatment-, and patient-related) factors. The purpose of this report ...

The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) announces its intention to hold the International Conference on Integrated Medical Imaging in Cardiovascular Diseases (IMIC2013). Cardiovascular diseases (CVDs) are an important sub-group of non-communicable diseases and are one of the main priorities in the health care systems of many IAEA Member States. Medical imaging, including molecular nuclear medicine, is extremely important in that it offers strategic advantages in both diagnostic and therapeutic decision making. It provides inputs for diagnosis, staging, treatment, prognosis and follow-up in the management of CVDs. Medical imaging includes techniques such as single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT), positron emission tomography (PET), echocardiography, computed tomography (CT), and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). These techniques provide an excellent opportunity to understand the pathology of individual patients and can therefore serve to facilitate tailored clinical management. ...

Since the start of implementation of the new set of procedures under Security Council resolution 1409 (2002) in July, based on the Goods Review List (GRL), the United Nations Secretariat has processed 1,987 contracts for humanitarian supplies and equipment worth almost $3.47 billion. Of this total, 63 per cent or 1,252 contracts worth about $1.51 billion have been approved by OIP after having been assessed by UNMOVIC and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) as not containing any GRL items, including a number of contracts previously placed on hold by the 661 Committee. UNMOVIC/IAEA have categorized 689 contracts worth $1.91 billion (34.7 per cent) as GRL non-compliant , requiring additional technical information from suppliers to enable final assessment. So far, 43 contracts worth $44.2 million, or 2.2 per cent, have been found to contain GRL items, of which eight contracts have been approved and two rejected by the Committee, while the remainder are at various stages of action either by ...
The Committee was informed that The International Pharmacopoeia contained only general methods for the analysis of radiopharmaceuticals; there were no individual monographs for such products, mainly because they were not on the WHO Model List of Essential Drugs. The Committee discussed a proposal to either retain or delete the general methods for the analysis of radiopharmaceuticals, and/or to prepare specific monographs for them. The Committee recommended that the general methods of analysis should be deleted from The International Pharmacopoeia and that a separate publication on radiopharmaceuticals (independent of The International Pharmacopoeia) should be prepared in collaboration with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA). It was also agreed that, at a future meeting of the Committee, it should be decided whether these newly developed monographs for radiopharmaceuticals should be kept separate from, or again included in, The International Pharmacopoeia. ...
Iran has called on the United Nations to avoid international pressure to stage a crackdown over its nuclear programme. An official for the country said it believed that goodwill from all parties could resolve the issue. Iran has said it is ready to negotiate on signing the so-called Additional Protocol that would allow snap inspections of its nuclear facilities. The United States says those facilities are part of a nuclear weapons programme. Iran strongly denies the charge. The UN watchdog, the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), has said in a confidential report that Iran had improved co-operation. But it felt there were still questions about weapons-grade uranium found at a site in Iran. Iranian foreign ministry spokesman Hamid Reza Asefi said: Some countries are about to exert pressure and the agency (IAEA) should not let it happen. If the other side shows goodwill and if the other side has honesty, I dont think it is an issue that cannot be solved. He said Iran had already shown ...

Since 2007, the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) - with the support of the United States, Israel and European allies UK, France and Germany - has been demanding that Iran explain a set of purported internal documents portraying a covert Iranian military program of research and development of nuclear weapons. The "laptop documents," supposedly obtained from a stolen Iranian computer by an unknown source and given to US intelligence in 2004, include a series of drawings of a missile re-entry vehicle that appears to be an effort to accommodate a nuclear weapon, as well as reports on high explosives testing for what appeared to be a detonator for a nuclear weapon.. In one report after another, the IAEA has suggested that Iran has failed to cooperate with its inquiry into that alleged research, and that the agency, therefore, cannot verify that it has not diverted nuclear material to military purposes.. That issue remains central to US policy toward Iran. The Obama administration says there ...
The UN nuclear watchdog said it made no progress in talks with Iran to seal a deal on resuming a long-stalled investigation into suspected atom bomb research by the Islamic state and it called the outcome "disappointing". The meetings failure - a few weeks after the UN nuclear chief said he had won assurances by Tehran that an agreement would be struck - may dim prospects for success in broader negotiations between Iran and major powers later this month. Herman Nackaerts, global head of inspections for the International Atomic Energy Agency, said after the eight-hour meeting at IAEA headquarters in Vienna that no date for further discussions on the matter had been set. The IAEA had been pressing Tehran for an accord that would give its inspectors immediate access to the Parchin military complex, where it believes explosives tests relevant for the development of nuclear arms have taken place and suspects Iran may now be cleaning the site of any incriminating evidence. The United States, European ...
Stuttgart TOUGH safeguards to prevent a future Saddam Hussein from developing nuclear weapons are being blocked by Germany and Japan.

The IAEA is anxious to avoid a repeat of its …
Actuality: Iran announced Monday a week ago to the International Atomic Energy Agency that it had begun work on a second, civilian nuclear enrichment facility near Qom. There are no nuclear materials at the site and it has not gone hot, so technically Iran is not in violation of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty, though it did break its word to the IAEA that it would immediately inform the UN of any work on a new facility. Iran has pledged to allow the site to be inspected regularly by the IAEA, and if it honors the pledge, as it largely has at the Natanz plant, then Iran cannot produce nuclear weapons at the site, since that would be detected by the inspectors. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton admitted on Sunday that Iran could not produce nuclear weapons at Natanz precisely because it is being inspected. Yet American hawks have repeatedly demanded a strike on Natanz ...

Medical imaging technologies and techniques continue to evolve rapidly and while providing unprecedented visibility into the body, their use mean exposure of patients to ionizing radiation. This is an area requiring attention in Canada.. To address the need for a national strategy and action plan relating to radiation safety for medical imaging care in Canada, a coalition of key stakeholders is being formed, called Canada Safe Imaging. Canada Safe Imaging will be formally launched in the months ahead with invitations to participate to include agencies, professional associations, universities, colleges, national research institutions and hospitals.. One impetus for this new Canadian initiative was to align with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) and the World Health Organization (WHO) initiative, supported by 77 countries and 16 organizations, titled the Bonn Call-for-Action, which outlines 10 major strategies for promoting radiation protection.. The delivery of health care is a ...

The Joint Plan of Action marks the first time in nearly a decade that the Islamic Republic of Iran has agreed to specific actions that stop the advance of its nuclear program, roll back key aspects of the program, and include unprecedented access for international inspectors. The technical understandings set forth how the provisions of the Joint Plan of Action will be implemented and verified, and the timing of implementation of its provisions. Specifically, the technical understandings specify the actions that Iran will take to limit its enrichment capacity at Natanz and Fordow, as well as the limits on safeguarded research and development (R&D); the actions Iran will take to implement its commitments not to fuel the Arak reactor or install remaining components at the reactor; and the actions Iran will take to facilitate International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) verification and confirmation that Iran is fully implementing these commitments. The understandings also clarify the reciprocal ...
This interregional training course on the Technical and Administrative Preparations Required for Shipment of Research Reactor Spent Fuel to its Country of Origin was organized by the International Atomic Energy Agency in cooperation with the Government of the United States through Argonne National Laboratory. The purpose of the course was to provide participants with the technical, organizational and administrative information needed to prepare irradiated research reactor fuel for shipment to its country of origin.. The course was open to 40 participants from IAEA member States in all geographical regions. Priority was given to candidates from developing countries which possess spent research reactor fuel and which may be interested in its potential return to the country origin.. The course was held in January 1997, shortly after the Foreign Research Reactor Spent Nuclear Fuel Acceptance Policy was initiated by the United States on May 13, 1997.

Israeli President Shimon Peres warned on Sunday that an Israeli attack on Iran is becoming increasingly likely. Peres comments comes just days before a highly anticipated report by the International Atomic Energy Agency on Irans nuclear program. According to the Washington Post, the report will claim Iran has mastered the critical steps needed to build a nuclear weapon. The IAEA report is also expected to state that Iran has received crucial technical assistance from foreign weapon scientists from Russia, Pakistan and North Korea. Meanwhile, the Israeli newspaper Haaretz reports U.S. officials are increasingly concerned that Israel will not warn them before taking military action against Irans alleged nuclear facilities. One official said the United States is "absolutely" concerned that Israel is preparing an attack on Irans nuclear facilities. ...

I will briefly refer to two Chernobyl studies in the west which falsify Wade Allisons assertions. The first is a study of cancer in Northern Sweden by Martin Tondel and his colleagues at Lynkoping University. Tondel examined cancer rates by radiation contamination level and showed that in the 10 years after the Chernobyl contamination of Sweden, there was an 11% increase in cancer for every 100kBq/sq metre of contamination. Since the official International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) figures for the Fukushima contamination are from 200 to 900kBq.sq metre out to 78km from the site, we can expect between 22% and 90% increases in cancer in people living in these places in the next 10 years. The other study I want to refer to is one I carried out myself. After Chernobyl, infant leukaemia was reported in 6 countries by 6 different groups, from Scotland, Greece, Wales, Germany, Belarus and the USA. The increases were only in children who had been in the womb at the time of the contamination: this ...
On May 4, 2003, the Swiss government sent the US State Department an unsigned one-page memorandum, which was not on official letterhead, and contained a cover letter by Swiss diplomat Tim Guldimannn which laid out a roadmap for discussions between Iran and the US under the heading of "U.S. aims", the document stated that Iran was willing to put "the following aims on the agenda": Accepting "the two-states approach" to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, ending "material support to Palestinian opposition groups ... from Iranian territory," pressuring Hezbollah "to become an exclusively political and social organization within Lebanon," supporting "political stabilization and the establishment of democratic institutions" in Iraq, taking "decisive action against any terrorists (above all al Qaeda) on Iranian territory," and fully cooperating with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) to ensure "there are no Iranian endeavors to develop or possess WMD."

The potential for gamma emission tomography (GET) to detect partial defects within a spent nuclear fuel assembly is being assessed through a collaboration of Support Programs to the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA). In the first phase of this study, two safeguards verification objectives have been identified. The first is the independent determination of the number of active pins that are present in the assembly, in the absence of a priori information about the assembly. The second objective is to provide quantitative assay of pin-by-pin properties, for example the activity of key isotopes or pin attributes such as cooling time and relative burnup, under the assumption that basic fuel parameters (e.g., assembly type and nominal fuel composition) are known. The efficacy of GET to meet these two verification objectives has been evaluated across a range of fuel types, burnups, and cooling times, and with a target total interrogation time of less than 60 minutes. This evaluation of GET ...
To date, the ABWR is licensed to operate in Japan, the United States and Taiwan. In comparison with comparable designs, the International Atomic Energy Agency notes that the four ABWRs in operation are often shut down due to technical problems. IAEA statistics documents this with the operating factor (the time with electricity feed-in relative to the total time since commercial operation start). The first two plants in Kashiwazaki-Kariwa reach total life operating factors of 70%, meaning that about 30% of the time, since commissioning, they were not producing electricity ...
The International Atomic Energy Agency has recently declared that its nuclear negotiations with Iran have failed. The statement followed Tehrans decision the bar IAEA inspectors from what is believed to be key military sites in the Islamic Republic. Iran vehemently claims that its nuclear program is meant to serve civil, peaceful purposes only. The Die Welt noted that evidence of the 2010 nuclear tests in North Korea was published in early February in Nature Magazine. According to the report, Swedish nuclear physicist Lars-Erik de Geer analyzed data "showing the presence of radioisotopes that betrayed a uranium bomb explosion ...

The Trump administration is giving "strong indications" that it is preparing a case to decertify Irans compliance with the international nuclear agreement, an expert says.. If that happens, though, some analysts believe it risks alienating U.S. allies. In addition to the United States and Iran, the 2015 nuclear agreement was signed by Britain, France, Germany, Russia, China and the United Nations.. The White House sent Nikki Haley, U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, to Vienna on Wednesday to meet with officials from the International Atomic Energy Agency, which is responsible for monitoring and verifying Irans commitments under the 2015 agreement, known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action.. On Thursday, Irans state-run IRNA news agency quoted from a letter sent by Irans foreign minister to the U.N. agency saying the country "is abiding by its duties and responsibilities" with regard to nuclear weapons and agreements. He accused Washington of using the issue "for ill-wishing ...
According to a government report to the International Atomic Energy Agency in June 2011, "NISAs lack of independence from the trade ministry, which promotes the use of atomic power, hampered a quick response to the disaster at Tokyo Electric Power Co.s Fukushima Dai-Ichi plant this year".[6] Following the Fukushima nuclear disaster, there have been questions raised about whether the Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency has been fulfilling its function as an industry regulator, and whether it should continue to exist.[7][8] The Asahi newspaper reported that the government planned to merge the Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency with the Nuclear Safety Commission, to create a new nuclear safety agency, under the environment ministry, by April 2012.[6] On the August 5th, 2011, then Minister of Economy, Trade and Industry Banri Kaieda announced that an independent panel had started to examine the allegations that NISA repeatedly tried to influence public symposiums on the use of nuclear energy. ...

January 25, 2013 - The study finds that in several countries in Western Europe there are too few radiotherapy machines to ensure that cancer patients in need of radiotherapy receive treatment. For instance, in Italy around 16 percent of need is unmet, in Portugal 19 percent, Austria 20 percent and the UK and Germany 21 percent. However, the authors caution that these apparent gaps in treatment supply may be compensated by more efficient organization of radiotherapy provision.. Led by Eduardo Rosenblatt from the International Atomic Energy Agency in Austria, the researchers analyzed data from the Directory of Radiotherapy Centers (DIRAC) database, a global registry of radiotherapy facilities, to compare the need for radiotherapy equipment with existing supply based on the number of inhabitants and cancer incidence in 33 European countries.. Availability of radiotherapy services varies widely between countries and regions within Europe. Nordic countries, Belgium, the Netherlands and Switzerland ...
