A new study has found that eliminating unnecessary CT scans and lowering the radiation doses of some scans could lower the risk of developing imaging-related cancers in children by 62 percent.
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
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
A new, effective treatment option now exists for patients with cancer that has spread to their bones. Chicago, Illinois (PRWEB) June 03, 2013 Patients
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.
True-Dose Pets has launched new packaging that will enable customers to purchase trial-size True-Dose Calming. St.
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.
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...
