Patients at Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center are being exposed to significantly less radiation during CT scans because of new technology that allows doctors to more tightly control radiation doses.
AdrProVita makes it easier to provide EMF radiation protection for this Father's Day. Baltimore, MD (PRWEB) June 13, 2013 With the Father's day
A recent study published by JAMA Pediatrics examined the rates and radiation dosages of CT scans used in children.
A new study reports that data collected by NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) reveals that lighter materials like plastics provide effective shielding against the radiation hazards faced by astronauts during extended space travel.
TriDerma Radiation Skin Relief™, recommended by patients, doctors and radiation oncologists for years, is now available in the First Aid department of supercenters in Michigan, Illinois, Ohio,
External beam radiation treatment has long been manipulated into the unique shape of patients’ tumors for personalized cancer care.
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
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...
