Radionuclide drug treatment planning goes to the next level with 3D patient models and quantification of therapeutic dose External beam radiation treatment has long been manipulated into the unique shape of patients´ tumors for personalized cancer care. Technology providing a means of patient-specific radionuclide drug therapies has not been standardized, as it has been limited to software that requires oncologists to manually define the areas of tumors. A new “phantom”...

Reducing Pediatric CT Scans Cuts Cancer Rates
2013-06-11 11:44:09

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Computed tomography (CT) has become an invaluable tool for diagnostic and research purposes, and a new study in the journal JAMA Pediatrics has found that eliminating unnecessary scans and lowering the radiation doses of some scans could lower the risk of developing imaging-related cancers in children by 62 percent. The study concluded that the 4 million CT scans performed on children in the US each year could lead to approximately...

A study examining trends in X-ray computed tomography (CT) use in children in the United States has found that reducing unnecessary scans and lowering the doses for the highest-dose scans could lower the overall lifetime risk of future imaging-related cancers by 62 percent. The research by a UC Davis Health System scientist is published online today in JAMA Pediatrics. (PRWEB) June 10, 2013 A study examining trends in X-ray computed tomography (CT) use in children in the United States has...

Spain's Solar Radiation Increasing
2013-06-06 16:01:54

FECYT - Spanish Foundation for Science and Technology Solar radiation in Spain has increased by 2.3% every decade since the 1980s, according to a study by researchers from the University of Girona and the Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) in Zurich. This increase is linked to the decreased presence of clouds, which has increased the amount of direct radiation reaching us from the Sun. "The mean annual G series over Spain shows a tendency to increase during the 1985-2010 period,...

A new, effective treatment option now exists for patients with cancer that has spread to their bones. Chicago, Illinois (PRWEB) June 03, 2013 Patients with cancer that has spread to their bones are often treated with radiation therapy to reduce pain. But if that treatment doesn´t work, or can´t be used again, a second, effective option now exists. Results of a clinical trial on the new therapy, presented by a researcher at Jefferson´s Kimmel Cancer Center, is being presented...

Extragalactic Ankle And Galactic Knee
2013-06-03 17:42:35

Karlsruhe Institute of Technology It is obvious from the data of the KASCADE-Grande experiment at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) that the so-called “knee” of the cosmic rays, a bend in the energy spectrum at high energies, is located at different energies for light and heavy particles. As regards light particles, the scientists have now found that the energy spectrum flattens again beyond the knee and forms a type of “ankle”. This structure indicates...

John P. Millis, Ph.D. and Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online There are many barriers that stand in the way of sending a human team to the surface of Mars. But near the top of the list of dangers would have to be the radiation exposure during the round trip voyage through the solar system. Clearly, a detailed understanding of the exposure levels is key in planning any mission to the Red Planet. To this end, the recent mission that carried NASA´s Curiosity...

Nuclear Fallout
2013-04-01 10:26:30

Nuclear fallout, or just simply fallout, known also as Black Rain, is the residual radioactive material that is propelled into the upper atmosphere after a nuclear black or a nuclear reaction that is conducted in an unshielded facility. It is so called because it "fall out" of the sky after the explosion and the shock wave have passed. It most commonly refers to the radioactive dust and ash that is created when a nuclear weapon explodes, but such dust can also come from a damaged nuclear...

Solar Radiation -- Solar radiation is radiant energy emitted by the sun due to nuclear fusion reactions. Fusion is the process whereby stars produce huge quantities of energy from the fusion of hydrogen or helium, in one of the most efficient processes of energy generation. The radiation referred to is usually electromagnetic energy, particularly infrared radiation, visible light, and ultraviolet. Some stars are known to emit radiation of other wavelengths. Solar neutrinos are a...
