  • Assessment Of Radiofrequency Radiation Within The Vicinity Of Some Gsm Base Stations In Ghana: A Follow-Up. [Journal Article]
    Radiat Prot Dosimetry. 2021 Jan 13 [Online ahead of print]Deatanyah P, Amoako JK, … Owusu-Banahene J
  • A follow-up of radiofrequency (RF) electromagnetic radiation safety survey at public access points had been carried out in 46 towns on 76 Global Systems for Mobile Communications and Universal Mobile Telecommunication System cell sites in two major cities in Ghana. The core objective was to determine the RF field levels in residential areas, schools and marketplaces and compare the measured resul…
  • Osl Characteristics: Theory And Experiments. [Journal Article]
    Radiat Prot Dosimetry. 2021 Jan 12 [Online ahead of print]Chruścińska A, Palczewski P
  • Fundamental effects such as the participation of crystal lattice vibrations should be taken into account while considering photo-ionisation in solids at measurement temperatures characteristic for dosimetric applications. The impact of these effects on the optically stimulated luminescence (OSL) can be recognised for example by changes in the optical cross-section of the trap with the stimulation…
  • Thermoluminescence Dosimetry (TLD) In Medicine: Five 'W's And One How. [Journal Article]
    Radiat Prot Dosimetry. 2021 Jan 12 [Online ahead of print]Kron T, Lonski P, Yukihara EG
  • Thermoluminescence dosimetry (TLD) has a long history of applications in medicine. However, despite its versatility and sensitivity its use is anecdotally diminishing, at least in part due to the complexity and work intensity of a quality TLD service. The present paper explores the role of TLD in medicine using a common inquiry methodology (5W1H) which systematically asks 'Who, What, When, Where,…
  • Microdosimetric Understanding of Dose Response and Relative Efficiency of Thermoluminescence Detectors. [Journal Article]
    Radiat Prot Dosimetry. 2021 Jan 09 [Online ahead of print]Olko P, Bilski P
  • LiF:Mg,Ti detectors show relative efficiency η for heavy charged particles significantly lower than one. It was for a long time not recognised that η varies also for electron energies and, as a consequence for photons. For LiF:Mg,Cu,P detectors measured photon energy response was named 'anomalous' because it differed significantly from the ratio of photon absorption coefficients. The decrease of …
  • Applications of Optically Stimulated Luminescence in Medical Dosimetry. [Journal Article]
    Radiat Prot Dosimetry. 2021 Jan 07 [Online ahead of print]Yukihara EG, Kron T
  • If the first decade of the new millennium saw the establishment of a more solid foundation for the use of the Optically Stimulated Luminescence (OSL) in medical dosimetry, the second decade saw the technique take root and become more widely used in clinical studies. Recent publications report not only characterization and feasibility studies of the OSL technique for various applications in radiot…
  • Review Of Quantitative Mechanistic Models Of Radiation-Induced Non-Targeted Effects (NTE). [Journal Article]
    Radiat Prot Dosimetry. 2021 Jan 05 [Online ahead of print]Shuryak I, Brenner DJ
  • Quantitative mechanistic modeling of the biological effects of ionizing radiation has a long rich history. Initially, it was dominated by target theory, which quantifies damage caused by traversal of cellular targets like DNA by ionizing tracks. The discovery that mutagenesis, death and/or altered behavior sometimes occur in cells that were not themselves traversed by any radiation tracks but mer…
  • Neutron and Gamma Albedo Evaluation at an Irradiation Facility. [Journal Article]
    Radiat Prot Dosimetry. 2020 Dec 23 [Online ahead of print]Ciolini R, Marini A, … d'Errico F
  • The irradiation facility of the University of Pisa (UNIPI) is a neutron and gamma irradiation facility of the University of Pisa used for calibration purposes and to evaluate detectors and dosemeters for mixed neutron and gamma fields. The facility consists of a fairly large room (5.0 × 7.8 × 2.5 m3) with concrete walls and roof designed to minimise radiation scattering. Sealed neutron and gamma …
  • Patient Size Indices and Dose in Fluoroscopically Guided Lumbar Discectomy and Fusion: A Preliminary Study. [Journal Article]
    Radiat Prot Dosimetry. 2020 Dec 19 [Online ahead of print]Metaxas VI, Gatzounis GD, … Panayiotakis GS
  • Patient dose values varied significantly during interventional procedures, mainly due to the patient size, operators' choices and clinical complexity. In this study, the effect of applying a previously described and validated size-correction method to normalise kerma-area product (KAP) and average KAP rate values of the whole procedure (KAP rate) and isolate variations in dose due to the patient …
  • Evaluation Of Organ Dose Based On Patient Data In East Asian Descent Pediatric Head Ct Examinations. [Journal Article]
    Radiat Prot Dosimetry. 2020 Dec 17 [Online ahead of print]Kawamoto K, Fukushima Y, … Nakata M
  • The purpose of this study was to investigate other indices estimating absorbed dose for eye lens and brain, using clinical images of East Asian pediatric patients. We simulated head computed tomography (CT) examinations in 104 pediatric patients. Effective diameter (deff) and water equivalent diameter (dw) were measured on clinical images. Various size metrics and age were compared with absorbed …
  • Estimating Radiation Dose to Major Organs in Dental X-Ray Examinations: A Phantom Study. [Journal Article]
    Radiat Prot Dosimetry. 2020 Dec 16 [Online ahead of print]Li Y, Huang B, … Wu J
  • The radiation doses absorbed by major organs of males and females were studied from three types of dental X-ray devices. The absorbed doses from cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT), panoramic and intraoral X-ray machines were in the range of 0.23-1314.85 μGy, and were observed to be high in organs and tissues located in or adjacent to the irradiated area, there were discrepancies in organ doses …
  • Occupational Eye Lens Dose Over Six Years in The Staff Of a Us High-Volume Cancer Center. [Journal Article]
    Radiat Prot Dosimetry. 2020 Dec 15 [Online ahead of print]Bellamy MB, Miodownik D, … Dauer L
  • This paper summarizes the dose to the eye lens of workers of Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, a high-volume US oncologic and associated diseases facility. The doses presented in this report were collected from personal dosemeter readings using optically stimulated luminescence badges to estimate Hp(3). Doses were collected for 5950 clinical and research workers between January 2012 and Dec…
  • Estimation of Actual Dose Based On Bayesian Probabilistic Approach Using Personnel Monitoring Dose Records. [Journal Article]
    Radiat Prot Dosimetry. 2020 Dec 14 [Online ahead of print]Pathan MS, Pradhan SM, Selvam TP
  • In this study, the Bayesian probabilistic approach is applied for the estimation of the actual dose using personnel monitoring dose records of occupational workers. To implement the Bayesian approach, the probability distribution of the uncertainty in the reported dose as a function of the actual dose is derived. Using the uncertainty distribution function of reported dose and prior knowledge of …
  • Fluoroscopy-Guided Biliary Procedures in a Pregnant, Liver Transplant Patient: Fetus Radiation Protection. [Journal Article]
    Radiat Prot Dosimetry. 2020 Dec 14 [Online ahead of print]Gerasia R, Cannataci C, … Miraglia R
  • We report three cases of clinically necessary, fluoroscopy-guided, percutaneous biliary procedures performed safely in a pregnant, liver transplant recipient using three different angiography suites. The uterine cumulative equivalent dose was 0.25 mSv, a value obtained by adding the doses of the three procedures described above, and which is relatively low when compared with the naturally occurri…
