Abstract
The International Commission on Radiological Protection has been functioning since 1928 when it was established, under the name of International X- ray and Radium Protection Commission, by the Second International Congress of Radiology held in Stockholm, Sweden. It assumed the present name and organizational form in 1950 in order to cover more effectively the rapidly expanding field of radiation protection. Recommendations are presented which represent concepts and practices evolved from recent discussions at formal and informal meetings of the Commission and its Committees. (auth)

PURPOSE This study presents a prototype smartphone application for occupational dosimetry in interventional practices based on electronic personal dosimeters to assist in dose monitoring. METHODS The prototype receives and records information from the Occupational Dose Report containing the cumulative dose of electronic personal dosimeters worn over the apron at chest level and electronic area dosimeters located on C-arms (reference dosimeters), for each fluoroscopy-guided procedure. Using their...

Coronavirus variants are gaining strongholds throughout the globe. Despite early signals that SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus case numbers are easing up in the United States and during the middle of a (not so easy) vaccination roll out, the country has passed a grim landmark of 600,000 deaths. We contend that these numbers would have been much lower if the medical community undertook serious investigations into the potential of low doses of radiation (LDRT) as a mainstream treatment modality for COVID-19...

Abstract null null Purpose null To estimate percentage of patients undergoing multiple CT exams leading to cumulative effective dose (CED) of more than 25, 50, 75 and 100 mSv in one year and assess per capita and the collective effective dose. null null null Methods null Data from a regional hospital network was collected retrospectively using radiation dose monitoring system at 6 facilities with 8 CT scanners. The data was analyzed to find number of patients in different dose groups, their age,...

PURPOSE This study investigated the clinical usefulness of F-18 fluorodeoxylucose (FDG) positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) for postoperative surveillance in the RCC patients in terms of detectability of recurrence and radiation exposure. METHODS Three-hundred-and-forty- three RCC patients who underwent surgery and postoperative surveillance were retrospectively included. Conditional recurrent free survival (CRFS) was investigated and diagnostic performance of conventional ...

PURPOSE Evaluation of the organ dose in pediatric patients up to 15 years old and Estimation of lifetime attributable risk (LAR) of cancer incidence in pediatric computed tomography procedures. MATERIALS AND METHODS Data from 532 patients below 15 years old was collected and they were categorized into four age groups of <1, 1-5, 5-10, and 10-15 years old. NCICT software was used to calculate the organ dose, and LAR of cancer incidence has been estimated according to the BEIR VII report. RESULTS ...

Abstract Paediatric computed tomography (CT) imaging though requested less than adult CT but has shown remarkable growth with raising concerns of increased radiation risk to the paediatric population. This study aims to evaluate age-based radiation dose from paediatric head CT scans at a single centre in Nigeria. This study evaluated 233 paediatric aged 0‒15 years and were classified into four age groups; Group 1 (≤1 year), Group 2 (2‒5 years), Group 3 (6‒10 years) and Group 4 (11‒15 years). Pat...

Abstract Objectives The objectives of the review were to investigate the legal and sociological basis of justification in society in order to fully assess its relevance to radiation protection. The difference between the justification of practices as distinct from the justification of reasons for the justification of individual activities within a practice and the relevance of cost–benefit analysis to this process are key elements. Key findings Justification of practices as a principle of radiat...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Proton therapy has been proposed as a technique to improve the long-term quality of life of breast cancer patients. This is due to its ability to reduce the dose to healthy tissue compared to conventional X-ray therapy. The aim of this study was to investigate the risk of secondary carcinogenesis due to proton therapy compared to hybrid IMRT for breast treatments. MATERIAL AND METHODS In this study, the Pinnacle treatment planning system was used to simulate treatment plan...
