Molecular Radiotherapy in the UK


  9780905749709



Current Status & Recommendations for Further Investigation
Reveals striking data on the current practice of molecular radiotherapy (MRT) in UK hospitals, both in respect of the availability of treatments and the range of doses delivered. 232 UK centres were surveyed to ascertain the range and number of treatments administered. It provides evidence that lays the foundations for a concerted effort to improve the practice of MRT in the UK.

Pregnancy and Work in Diagnostic Imaging


  9780905749679



document the risk from ionising radiation and MRI
The Ionising Radiations Regulations 1999 require the employer to ensure that, once the employee has notified them that she is pregnant, the equivalent dose to the fetus is unlikely to exceed 1 mSv during the remainder of the pregnancy. At this level of exposure there is no evidence to show that there is any significant risk of radiation effects to the fetus.

Medical Management of Radiation Accidents


  0905749464



Manual on the Acute Radiation Syndrom
The medical management of radiation accident victims is classically centred on the assessment and reconstruction of the radiation dose. However, in operational situations, dose assessment and reconstruction is an uncertain and lengthy process unable to reflect the complex interplay of irradiation with tissue and organs or the extent of biological damage to the organism, especially in the early phase after a radiation accident.

Therefore diagnosis, as well as, therapy of an Acute Radiation Syndrome (ARS) should be based on the recognition and assessment of clinical signs and symptoms after acute radiation exposure. This publication reviews the currently available knowledge and introduces a novel approach for the care of radiation accident victims.

PET Scanning in Radiotherapy. BJR Supplement 28


  0905749618



Aims to raise awareness of the potential of PET scanning in the wider community and to highlight the research areas necessary to develop PET as a useful clinical entity within the NHS. Proceedings of a BIR scientific meeting, held in collaboration with NT
Positron emission tomography (PET) is a non-invasive, quantitative imaging technique that can visualise biochemical, physiological and biological processes in vivo. It is the most specific and sensitive molecular imaging technique in man. In recent years, PET has emerged as a valuable tool for tumour diagnosis, disease staging and treatment monitoring. In particular, PET has great potential as an important component of the radiotherapy treatment process. Although CT is the current gold standard for disease staging, PET has the potential to refine and improve this, and to provide powerful biological information.
