  3. La scrittura terapeutica: cura e conoscenza di sé

    Full Text Available Il concetto di Scrittura Terapeutica ha inizio da un lavoro autobiografico realizzato nel 2003, il cui titolo è «Lettere ad un interlocutore reale. Il mio senso». Quella scrittura autobiografica si è rivelata terapeutica perché ha aiutato lo scrittore a sviluppare le sue afflitte sofferenze, superare i traumi e vincere vecchi sensi di colpa. La Scrittura Terapeutica, intesa come rivelazione interiore, è essenziale per capire anche i segnali fisici che il nostro corpo ci dà, spesso come una risposta, consapevole o no, a un dolore che avevamo vissuto e stiamo ancora vivendo. La scrittura individuale diventa un'esperienza condivisa in gruppi, dove ognuno dà il proprio contributo personale. L'approccio epistolare della Scrittura Terapeutica consiste in un gruppo di lettere (scritto a sé stessi, a una madre, ecc. utilizzate come strumenti terapeutici, in modo che lo scrittore possa facilmente richiamare gli episodi significativi della propria esistenza, dalla sua infanzia all'età adulta. Il modo epistolare diventa allora il modo più appropriato per ricordare le nostre emozioni, i nostri dolori, le sofferenze e i nostri sentimenti più profondi. I benefici, ottenuti con la scrittura individuale, diventeranno più ampi durante la lettura e la condivisione di esperienze personali con gli altri. Gli umori negativi, vissuti di nuovo dalla persona che racconta di sé, perderanno, linea dopo linea, la caratteristica dell'ansia e del tabù; mentre quelli positivi, anche se timidamente espressi, troveranno nella benevolenza altrui un ulteriore motivo per accrescere autostima. Tutti questi sforzi costanti rendono la "Scrittura Terapeutica" una forma appropriata per evolvere e per trasformarla in scrittura performativa.

    1999-12-31

    The radiopharmaceutical administration with diagnostic or therapeutic purpose during pregnancy implies a prenatal radiation dose. The dose assessment and the evaluation of the radiological risks become relevant due to the great radiosensitivity of the fetal tissues in development. This paper is a revision of the available data for estimating fetal doses in the cases of the more frequently used radiopharmaceuticals in nuclear medicine, taking into account recent investigation in placental crossover. The more frequent diagnostic and therapeutic procedures were analyzed according to the radiation doses implied. (author) 8 refs. [Espanol] La administracion de radiofarmacos con fines diagnosticos o terapeuticos durante el embarazo, resulta en una dosis absorbida en el feto. La evaluacion de esta dosis y la consiguiente estimacion del riesgo radiologico asociado, adquiere relevancia dada la mayor radiosensibilidad de los tejidos fetales con respecto a la de los adultos. El proposito de este trabajo es hacer una revision de los lineamientos existentes sobre las hipotesis a considerar en el calculo de dosis al feto para los radiofarmacos de uso mas frecuente, incorporando las investigaciones recientes que aportan informacion sobre la transferencia placentaria, teniendo en cuenta la edad gestacional. Se analizan las practicas diagnosticas y terapeuticas mas frecuentes comparando las dosis que implican en el feto con los limites internacionalmente aceptados. Se pretende asi disponer de las herramientas necesarias para responder a las consultas sobre los riesgo radiologicos debidos a la administracion de radiofarmacos a embarazadas. (autor)

    Full Text Available En relación con la hepatitis B, la vacunación estándar permite, en la gran mayoría de los casos, un título de anti-HBs protector (>10 UI/l. Sin embargo, la duración efectiva de la memoria inmunológica no es bien conocida todavía. Como consecuencia de ello, las recomendaciones en el seguimiento postvacunal han sido dispares: desde no realizar seguimiento hasta realizar tests serológicos postvacunales (título de anti-HBs de manera regular. En los sujetos no protegidos tras la vacunación primaria, la dosis de refuerzo ha demostrado ser efectiva. Pero el procedimiento más adecuado para su utilización en función del título de anti-HBs alcanzado no está bien establecido. Se recomienda el test postvacunal y la monitorización serológica periódica únicamente en determinados grupos de riesgo, fundamentalmente en personal sanitario y en personas inmunodeprimidas. En estos casos la dosis de refuerzo se debe aplicar en los sujetos no respondedores, utilizando incluso el doble de la dosis habitual. No existe todavía un estado de consenso respecto a la temporalidad más adecuada para administrar la dosis de refuerzo.

    simpaticectomia lombare e un'opzione terapeutica complementare, destinata a quei pazienti con grave arteriopatia perierica degli srti inferiori, allo stadio terminale, che presentino dolore a riposo e gagrena e che non vengano riconosciuti idonei per un tentativo di rivascolarizzazione chirurgica. La simpatectomia lombare chirurgica, con tecnica tradizionale, e stata ampiamente utilizzata in passato, ma, in virtu dell'invasivita, e stata nel tempo accantonata a favore delle tecniche percutanee, anche se recentemente sono stati riportati casi di trattamento con tecnica laparoscopica. La simpaticectomia lombare percutanea e invece un'opzione terapeutica sicura, poco costosa e facilmente disponibile. Riportiamo la nostra esperienza su 19 casi, eseguiti sotto controllo TC. Materiale e metodi: Tra il 1998 e il 2002, la procedura di simpaticolisi percutanea sotto controllo TC e stata effettuata in 19 pazienti. Tutti i pazienti presentavano un'arteriopatia degli arti inferiori al IV stadio di Fontaine, con dolore a riposo e gangrena; non erano stati considerati idonei per un tentativo di rivascolarizzazione chirurgica. Due aghi da 22 G, lunghi 15 cm, sono stati utilizzati per iniettare fenolo a livello di L2 e L4. I segni dell'interruzione dell'attivita simpatica compaiono 2'-15' dopo la procedura e comprendono calore e arrossamento. Risultati: La procedura si e rivelata semplice, sicura, ben tollerata dai pazienti, con una bassa percentuale di complicanze. Dei 19 pazienti, 9 (47.3%) hanno mostrato un miglioramento del quadro clinico, mentre 5 hanno fatto registrare un peggioramento della loro condizione ischemica nei mesi successivi. Discussione: I risultati suggeriscono che la procedura di simpaticectomia lombare percutanea e in grado di causare un blocco del plesso simpatico nei pazienti con un'arteriopatia degli arti inferiori in fase avanzata. L'assistenza fornita dalla TC consente un'elevata precisione nella somministrazione

    This experiment it was designed to quantify that so important it is the dose equivalent deposited by the neutron flow that is generated by photonuclear reactions during therapeutic irradiations with X rays of produced high-energy for an accelerator Varian CLINAC 2500. This accelerator type is routinely used in the Department of Radiotherapy of the Hospital of the University of Wisconsin, E.U. The equivalent dose was measured in diverse towns of the room of irradiations using the activation of thin sheets of gold put in the center of plastic recipients full with water. In general, the recipients were 1 m or more than the floor and at distances still bigger than the walls. The irradiations were made using photons with the highest energy that you can select with this team - 24 MeV. The due equivalent dose to neutrons taken place here by the energy photons used they were measured and reported. (author)

    Full Text Available OBJETIVO: Determinar la dosis de radiación ultravioleta que reciben los niños y adolescentes durante su asistencia a la escuela primaria, secundaria o preparatoria en la ciudad de San Luis Potosí. MATERIAL Y MÉTODOS: Estudio de cohorte hecho en la ciudad de San Luis Potosí entre mayo de 2001 y abril de 2002. Se evaluaron 80 escolares escogidos al azar de 6 a 19 años de edad, de uno u otro sexo. La dosis se cuantificó durante todo un ciclo escolar mediante el registro del tiempo de exposición solar para cada uno de los alumnos, de modo simultáneo al monitoreo de radiación ultravioleta, para lo cual se utilizaron equipos de radiometría terrestre. Se excluyeron las vacaciones y los fines de semana. Los datos se analizaron en forma univariada y comparativamente, por sexo y meses de exposición; además, se buscó un modelo de regresión para explicar la dosis de exposición solar. RESULTADOS: La dosis promedio ajustada al espectro de eritematógeno acción fue de 16 456 J/m²/año.Hubo diferencias por género: 14 264 J/m²/año/mujeres vs. 18 648 J/m²/año/hombres (Kolmogorov-Smirnof, p=0.003.

    2016-01-01

    Full Text Available The radiation environment encountered in space differs in nature from that on Earth, consisting mostly of highly energetic ions from protons up to iron, resulting in radiation levels far exceeding the ones present on Earth for occupational radiation workers. Since the beginning of the space era, the radiation exposure during space missions has been monitored with various active and passive radiation instruments. Also onboard the International Space Station (ISS, a number of area monitoring devices provide data related to the spatial and temporal variation of the radiation field in and outside the ISS. The aim of the DOSIS (2009–2011 and the DOSIS 3D (2012–ongoing experiments was and is to measure the radiation environment within the European Columbus Laboratory of the ISS. These measurements are, on the one hand, performed with passive radiation detectors mounted at 11 locations within Columbus for the determination of the spatial distribution of the radiation field parameters and, on the other, with two active radiation detectors mounted at a fixed position inside Columbus for the determination of the temporal variation of the radiation field parameters. Data measured with passive radiation detectors showed that the absorbed dose values inside the Columbus Laboratory follow a pattern, based on the local shielding configuration of the radiation detectors, with minimum dose values observed in the year 2010 of 195–270 μGy/day and maximum values observed in the year 2012 with values ranging from 260 to 360 μGy/day. The absorbed dose is modulated by (a the variation in solar activity and (b the changes in ISS altitude.

    2006-10-15

    This thesis deals with the development of a new dosimetry device for the control of radiotherapy beams. This device is composed of a plane plastic scintillator which is set within a polystyrene phantom. When the 'DosiMap' is irradiated, light is produced. This light is composed of scintillation and Cerenkov radiation, and is accurately measured by a C.C.D. camera. The analysis of the light distribution enables us to deduce the dose distribution in the scintillator plan. This device has many advantages such as tissue equivalence, a good spatial resolution, and a linear response with regard to energy. It also provides immediate measurements, and as a consequence, it is a very adapted tool for clinical use. After the introduction about the basic notions of radiotherapy, the different steps of the 'DosiMap' development are exposed in this thesis. In a first time, plastic scintillators have been tested to determine the best one for this application. Then, the deconvolution of scintillation and Cerenkov radiation have been studied, because we only use scintillation to calculate the dose distribution. The camera being in the irradiation room, a lead shield has also been developed to protect the C.C.D. detector from scattered radiations. Finally, the dose calibration and the dose response of 'DosiMap' are exposed. All this work made feasible the measurement of dose distributions with a precision which turns out to be better than 2% for homogeneous photon beams. Excellent results were also obtained when modulated intensity beams are used. (author)

    Full Text Available Therapeutic Theatre Scene Abstract In the article we propose, we point out the characteristics of theatre as treat-ment tool to “contaminate professionalism” and promote health, starting from the experience of Bologna’s company Arte e Salute [Art and Health] which, in the very lively panorama of theatre companies promoting health and cultural quality, stands out for its historical and methodological characteristics. Three privileged observation angles are highlighted by the dissertation: an intra-psychic, an inter-subjective and an external viewpoint, meaning with this latter the sense of social and cultural penetration these experiences carry out in the community through a contamination of lived experiences and metaphor of overcoming the stigma (“public” metaphoric -and not- which looks at actors, always more “outside” health services and thus “inside” their community. A special relevance is given to the exploration of the factor group – company to promote change. Keywords:

    2000-06-01

    Full Text Available Una vez estudiada la toxicidad de la vacuna VA-DIFTET® (vacuna antidiftérica antitetánica por administración a dosis única en dos especies de animales, se impone la evaluación a dosis repetida, teniendo en cuenta que el esquema de inmunización en humanos prevé la aplicación de tres dosis cuando el componente pertusis de la DPT está contraindicado. Se emplearon 210 ratones OF-1 de ambos sexos. Los grupos experimentales fueron similares a los de la prueba a dosis única con la vacuna dúplex, anatoxina diftérica, anatoxina tetánica, adyuvante, tiomersal, solución salina fisiológica y un grupo control no tratado. Un grupo de hembras y otro de machos fue asignado aleatoriamente a cada tratamiento y para recibir 1, 2 ó 3 dosis por vía intramuscular. Tras cada aplicación se evaluó la aparición de síntomas clínicos, el incremento de peso, el consumo de agua y alimento y la dinámica de la respuesta inmune contra las anatoxinas tetánica y diftérica, específicamente de tipo IgG, mediante ELISA indirecto. Al término de las observaciones los animales fueron sacrificados y se realizaron estudios anatomopatológicos. Además, durante el sacrificio se evaluó el índice relativo de bazo y timo, así como la relación bazo/timo. No se comprobaron alteraciones que evidenciaran toxicidad por parte de la vacuna y sus componentes. Asimismo, se demostró una marcada respuesta inmune en los grupos vacunales e inoculados con las anatoxinas. Se considera que los resultados de la prueba fueron satisfactorios.

  7. Development of DosiMap: dosimetry device for radiotherapy quality assurance

    Frelin, A.M.

    2006-10-01

    This thesis deals with the development of a new dosimetry device for the control of radiotherapy beams. This device is composed of a plane plastic scintillator which is set within a polystyrene phantom. When the 'DosiMap' is irradiated, light is produced. This light is composed of scintillation and Cerenkov radiation, and is accurately measured by a C.C.D. camera. The analysis of the light distribution enables us to deduce the dose distribution in the scintillator plan. This device has many advantages such as tissue equivalence, a good spatial resolution, and a linear response with regard to energy. It also provides immediate measurements, and as a consequence, it is a very adapted tool for clinical use. After the introduction about the basic notions of radiotherapy, the different steps of the 'DosiMap' development are exposed in this thesis. In a first time, plastic scintillators have been tested to determine the best one for this application. Then, the deconvolution of scintillation and Cerenkov radiation have been studied, because we only use scintillation to calculate the dose distribution. The camera being in the irradiation room, a lead shield has also been developed to protect the C.C.D. detector from scattered radiations. Finally, the dose calibration and the dose response of 'DosiMap' are exposed. All this work made feasible the measurement of dose distributions with a precision which turns out to be better than 2% for homogeneous photon beams. Excellent results were also obtained when modulated intensity beams are used. (author)

    The natural radiation environment in Low Earth Orbit (LEO) differs significantly in composition and energy from that found on Earth. The space radiation field consists of high energetic protons and heavier ions from Galactic Cosmic Radiation (GCR), as well as of protons and electrons trapped in the Earth's radiation belts (Van Allen belts). Protons and some heavier particles ejected in occasional Solar Particle Events (SPEs) might in addition contribute to the radiation exposure in LEO. All sources of radiation are modulated by the solar cycle. During solar maximum conditions SPEs occur more frequently with higher particle intensities. Since the radiation exposure in LEO exceeds exposure limits for radiation workers on Earth, the radiation exposure in space has been recognized as a main health concern for humans in space missions from the beginning of the space age on. Monitoring of the radiation environment is therefore an inevitable task in human spaceflight. Since mission profiles are always different and each spacecraft provides different shielding distributions, modifying the radiation environment measurements needs to be done for each mission. The experiments "Dose Distribution within the ISS (DOSIS)" (2009-2011) and "Dose Distribution within the ISS 3D (DOSIS 3D)" (2012-onwards) onboard the Columbus Laboratory of the International Space Station (ISS) use a detector suite consisting of two silicon detector telescopes (DOSimetry TELescope = DOSTEL) and passive radiation detector packages (PDP) and are designed for the determination of the temporal and spatial variation of the radiation environment. With the DOSTEL instruments' changes of the radiation composition and the related exposure levels in dependence of the solar cycle, the altitude of the ISS and the influence of attitude changes of the ISS during Space Shuttle dockings inside the Columbus Laboratory have been monitored. The absorbed doses measured at the end of May 2016 reached up to 286

    Full Text Available En el marco de la cuestionada lucha internacional contra las drogas, el esfuerzo del gobierno de Álvaro Uribe Vélez logró derogar la política estatal de naturaleza libertaria que permitía la “dosis personal”, por medio de la aprobación de una reforma constitucional que prohíbe el consumo de drogas y las conductas asociadas con el mismo, lo cual es un hecho político presentado como una política pública justificada en aras del interés general, en beneficio de toda la sociedad, incluido el adicto, a quien se le obliga a su rehabilitación por medio de tratamientos psiquiátricos.

    Ongoing multi-center clinical trials are crucial for Biophotonics to gain acceptance in medical imaging. In these trials, quality control (QC) and assurance (QA) are key to success and provide "data insurance". Quality control and assurance deal with standardization, validation, and compliance of procedures, materials and instrumentation. Specifically, QC/QA involves systematic assessment of testing materials, instrumentation performance, standard operating procedures, data logging, analysis, and reporting. QC and QA are important for FDA accreditation and acceptance by the clinical community. Our Biophotonics research in the Network for Translational Research in Optical Imaging (NTROI) program for breast cancer characterization focuses on QA/QC issues primarily related to the broadband Diffuse Optical Spectroscopy and Imaging (DOS/I) instrumentation, because this is an emerging technology with limited standardized QC/QA in place. In the multi-center trial environment, we implement QA/QC procedures: 1. Standardize and validate calibration standards and procedures. (DOS/I technology requires both frequency domain and spectral calibration procedures using tissue simulating phantoms and reflectance standards, respectively.) 2. Standardize and validate data acquisition, processing and visualization (optimize instrument software-EZDOS; centralize data processing) 3. Monitor, catalog and maintain instrument performance (document performance; modularize maintenance; integrate new technology) 4. Standardize and coordinate trial data entry (from individual sites) into centralized database 5. Monitor, audit and communicate all research procedures (database, teleconferences, training sessions) between participants ensuring "calibration". This manuscript describes our ongoing efforts, successes and challenges implementing these strategies.

    This paper deals with an analysis problem for diffusion-ordered NMR spectroscopy (DOSY). DOSY is formulated as a matrix factorization problem of a given observed matrix. In order to solve this problem, a direct exponential curve resolution algorithm (DECRA) is well known. DECRA is based on singular value decomposition; the advantage of this algorithm is that the initial value is not required. However, DECRA requires a long calculating time, depending on the size of the given observed matrix due to the singular value decomposition, and this is a serious problem in practical use. Thus, this paper proposes a new analysis algorithm for DOSY to achieve a short calculating time. In order to solve matrix factorization for DOSY without using singular value decomposition, this paper focuses on the size of the given observed matrix. The observed matrix in DOSY is also a rectangular matrix with more columns than rows, due to limitation of the measuring time; thus, the proposed algorithm transforms the given observed matrix into a small observed matrix. The proposed algorithm applies the eigenvalue decomposition and the difference approximation to the small observed matrix, and the matrix factorization problem for DOSY is solved. The simulation and a data analysis show that the proposed algorithm achieves a lower calculating time than DECRA as well as similar analysis result results to DECRA. (author)

    New radiation therapy techniques such as IMRT present significant efficiency due to their highly conformal dose distributions. A consequence of the complexity of their dose distributions (high gradients, small irradiation fields, low dose distribution, ...) is the requirement for better precision quality assurance than in classical radiotherapy in order to compare the conformation of the delivered dose with the planned dose distribution and to guarantee the quality of the treatment. Currently this control is mostly performed by matrices of ionization chambers, diode detectors, dosimetric films, portal imaging, or dosimetric gels. Another approach is scintillation dosimetry, which has been developed in the last 15 years mainly through scintillating fiber devices. Despite having many advantages over other methods it is still at an experimental level for routine dosimetry because the Cerenkov radiation produced under irradiation represents an important stem effect. A new 2D water equivalent scintillating dosimeter, the DosiMap, and two different Cerenkov discrimination methods were developed with the collaboration of the Laboratoire de Physique Corpusculaire of Caen, the Comprehensive Cancer Center Francois Baclesse, and the ELDIM Co., in the frame of the MAESTRO European project. The DosiMap consists of a plastic scintillating sheet placed inside a transparent polystyrene phantom. The light distribution produced under irradiation is recorded by a CCD camera. Our first Cerenkov discrimination technique is subtractive. It uses a chessboard pattern placed in front of the scintillator, which provides a background signal containing only Cerenkov light. Our second discrimination technique is colorimetric. It performs a spectral analysis of the light signal, which allows the unfolding of the Cerenkov radiation and the scintillation.

    New radiation therapy techniques such as IMRT present significant efficiency due to their highly conformal dose distributions. A consequence of the complexity of their dose distributions (high gradients, small irradiation fields, low dose distribution, ...) is the requirement for better precision quality assurance than in classical radiotherapy in order to compare the conformation of the delivered dose with the planned dose distribution and to guarantee the quality of the treatment. Currently this control is mostly performed by matrices of ionization chambers, diode detectors, dosimetric films, portal imaging, or dosimetric gels. Another approach is scintillation dosimetry, which has been developed in the last 15 years mainly through scintillating fiber devices. Despite having many advantages over other methods it is still at an experimental level for routine dosimetry because the Cerenkov radiation produced under irradiation represents an important stem effect. A new 2D water equivalent scintillating dosimeter, the DosiMap, and two different Cerenkov discrimination methods were developed with the collaboration of the Laboratoire de Physique Corpusculaire of Caen, the Comprehensive Cancer Center François Baclesse, and the ELDIM Co., in the frame of the MAESTRO European project. The DosiMap consists of a plastic scintillating sheet placed inside a transparent polystyrene phantom. The light distribution produced under irradiation is recorded by a CCD camera. Our first Cerenkov discrimination technique is subtractive. It uses a chessboard pattern placed in front of the scintillator, which provides a background signal containing only Cerenkov light. Our second discrimination technique is colorimetric. It performs a spectral analysis of the light signal, which allows the unfolding of the Cerenkov radiation and the scintillation. Tests were carried out with our DosiMap prototype and the performances of the two discrimination methods were assessed. The comparison of the

    Full Text Available Uno de los principales determinantes de la supervivencia de los pacientes en hemodiálisis es la dosis de la misma, las fórmulas comúnmente utilizadas son aquellas basadas en el modelo cinético de la urea. Sin embargo, debido a la necesidad de al menos dos muestras sanguíneas, su aplicabilidad a todas las sesiones de diálisis es bastante escasa. Actualmente casi todos los monitores de diálisis están provistos de sensores de dialisancia iónica, lo que nos permite obtener de forma indirecta y en tiempo real, información acerca del aclaramiento de urea en todas las sesiones de diálisis y sin necesidad de obtener muestras sanguíneas. Con el objetivo de evaluar la correlación que existe entre la dosis de diálisis medida por dialisancia iónica y aquella medida por cinética de Urea mediante la ecuación de KT/V monocompartimental de segunda generación según Daugirdas, diseñamos un estudio transversal que incluye 28 pacientes prevalentes de nuestra unidad de diálisis, obtuvimos datos de dosis de diálisis (aclaramiento, KT, KT/V por dialisancia iónica y el KT/V según fórmula de Daugirdas de segunda generación. La media de KT/V por dialisancia iónica fue de 1.79 ± 0.29 del KT/V según Daugirdas de 1.95 ± 0.35. En el análisis estadístico encontramos una importante correlación entre ambos métodos (R2 = 0.86 p< 0.001. Con los resultados de este estudio concluimos que la dialisancia iónica es una técnica útil para valorar la dosis de diálisis en nuestros pacientes y su uso debería generalizarse en las distintas unidades de diálisis.

    Besides the effects of the microgravity environment, and the psychological and psychosocial problems encountered in confined spaces, radiation is the main health detriment for long dura-tion human space missions. The radiation environment encountered in space differs in nature from that on earth, consisting mostly of high energetic ions from protons up to iron, resulting in radiation levels far exceeding the ones encountered on earth for occupational radiation workers. Accurate knowledge of the physical characteristics of the space radiation field in dependence on the solar activity, the orbital parameters and the different shielding configurations of the International Space Station ISS is therefore needed. The DOSIS (Dose Distribution inside the ISS) experiment, under the project and science lead of DLR, aims for the spatial and tempo-ral measurement of the radiation field parameters inside the European Columbus laboratory onboard the International Space Station. This goal is achieved by applying a combination of passive (Thermo-and Optical luminescence detectors and Nuclear track etch detectors) and active (silicon telescope) radiation detectors. The passive radiation detectors -so called pas-sive detector packages (PDP) are mounted at eleven positions within the Columbus laboratory -aiming for a spatial dose distribution measurement of the absorbed dose, the linear energy transfer spectra and the dose equivalent with an average exposure time of six months. Two active silicon telescopes -so called Dosimetry Telescopes (DOSTEL 1 and DOSTEL 2) together with a Data and Power Unit (DDPU) are mounted within the DOSIS Main Box at a fixed loca-tion beneath the European Physiology Module (EPM) rack. The DOSTEL 1 and DOSTEL 2 detectors are positioned at a 90 angle to each other for a precise measurement of the temporal and spatial variation of the radiation field, especially during crossing of the South Atlantic Anomaly (SAA). The DOSIS hardware was launched with the

Niks is bekend oor hul aanpasbaarheid by skadelike gasse nie. Resultate van hierdie eksperiment by Opistophthalmus pugnax bewys dat hulle ’n hoë dosis van 1000 dele per miljoen SO2 kan oorleef wat nie die geval is by die mens nie. Byvoorbeeld, die suurstofverbruikskoers neem eerder toe van 4.16 µmol/g-1 uur-1 na 7.69 µmol/g-1uur-1, een uur ná blootstelling aan SO2. Veertig minute na blootstelling was die ṀO2 steeds bykans twee keer hoër in vergelyking met die ṀO2 aan die begin. Hierdie bevinding moet deur verdere eksperimente nagevors word, veral wat die rol van spirakulumsluiting speel by blootstelling aan SO2.

    Schwere Verlaufsformen der Alopecia areata (AA) im Kindesalter sind aufgrund limitierter Optionen therapeutisch herausfordernd. Systemische, hochdosierte Glukokortikoide weisen die schnellste Ansprechrate auf, nach dem Absetzen kommt es allerdings zu Rezidiven. Eine längerfristige Hochdosis-Anwendung ist aufgrund der zu erwartenden Nebenwirkungen nicht empfehlenswert. Eine dauerhafte Steroiderhaltungstherapie unterhalb der Cushing-Schwellen-Dosis nach Bolustherapie könnte die Krankheitsaktivität ohne Nebenwirkungen längerfristig unterdrücken. Im Rahmen einer offenen Anwendungsbeobachtung wurden 13 Kinder mit schweren Formen der AA in diese Studie eingeschlossen. Bei sieben Kindern lag eine AA totalis/universalis vor, bei sechs eine multifokale AA mit Befall von mehr als 50 % der Kopfhaut. Das Therapieregime sah eine initiale Prednisolon-Dosierung von 2 mg/kg Körpergeweicht (KG) vor und wurde innerhalb von neun Wochen auf eine Erhaltungsdosierung unter der individuellen Cushing-Schwelle reduziert. Der Nachbeobachtungszeitraum betrug ein bis drei Jahre. Wir beobachteten in 62 % aller Fälle ein komplettes Nachwachsen der Haare. Die mittlere Dauer bis zum Ansprechen lag bei 6,6 Wochen und konnte mit der Erhaltungstherapie über den gesamten Beobachtungszeitraum aufrechterhalten werden. An Nebenwirkungen wurden ausschließlich eine Gewichtszunahme (1-3 kg) bei allen Behandelten sowie eine milde Steroidakne in 23 % der Fälle beobachtet. Die kombinierte Hoch-/Niedrig-Dosis-Therapie mit systemischen Glukokortikoiden mittels Prednisolon zeigte eine hohe, dauerhafte Ansprechrate ohne signifikante Nebenwirkungen. © 2017 Deutsche Dermatologische Gesellschaft (DDG).

Dosis elevadas de este compuesto son aplicadas antes de los transplantes de médula ósea y de células germinales, sin embargo no han sido cuantificados el daño ni la recuperación del sistema reproductor. Para cuantificar la recuperación del efecto en la espermatogénesis, se usaron ratones de la cepa Balb C, a los que se les inyectó Busulfán intraperitonealmente, 40 mg/kg de peso corporal, y se evaluó el peso testicular y la concentración espermática en cola de epidídimo, a los 30, 54 y 72 días y se realizaron cortes histológicos de testículo. Los resultados fueron analizados con la prueba U Mann-Whitney p>0.05. A los 30 días el peso testicular, la concentración espermática y el diámetro de los túbulos seminíferos presentaron una drástica reducción del 77,8%, 97,9% y 34,3% respectivamente, comparados con el grupo control. A los 54 días, el peso testicular y el diámetro testicular muestran una recuperación del 70%. A los 72 días, la recuperación es completa en los parámetros evaluados. Por lo tanto, Busulfán aplicado en una sola dosis afecta significativamente la espermatogénesis en el ratón y se logra la recuperación completa en dos ciclos espermáticos.

    C-14 is a radioactive isotope of C with a half-life of 5700 years that decays to N-14 by emission of beta radiation. It is naturally produced in the upper atmosphere by cosmic ray neutrons via the (n;p) reaction over N-14. Anthropogenic C-14 has been generated in the past by atmospheric nuclear weapon tests and it is currently produced during the operation of nuclear reactors. Once released this radionuclide behaves in the biosphere as the standard carbon cycle. Since the beginning of the industrial period the relationship Carbon-14/Stable Carbon has changed continuously, and so the dose incurred by the world population. In this paper the main anthropogenic activities that modified such relationship are presented and analyzed: the Suess effect and the generation of nuclear energy. It is concluded that the current trend of reduction of the total dose due to C-14 will continue during the next decades. Finally it is indicated that in order to prevent an excessive accumulation of this radionuclide in the biosphere, actions should be collectively implemented to be effective.

Los resultados indicaron que, bajo las condiciones del estudio y según los criterios establecidos para evaluar los resultados, la vacuna antimeningocócica tipo B, no produce efectos tóxicos en el modelo animal usado. Todo lo que se observó fueron formaciones granulomatosas a nivel del punto de inoculación. Estas formaciones han sido reportadas como pertenecientes a los adyuvantes de depósito, como el hidróxido de aluminio, usado en otras vacunas parenterales. Se concluye que la vacuna antimeningocócica tipo B resultó satisfactoria en las pruebas de toxicidad por dosisúnica y tolerancia local realizadas en la especie rata.

    Full Text Available Presentamos una estrategia de innovación educativa consistente en la implementación de un proyecto de investigación virtual en biología. En la educación universitaria presencial, algunas prácticas de laboratorio son prohibitivas por sus altos costos. En la educación a distancia existen pocos materiales virtuales que las sustituyan. En este trabajo compartimos la experiencia del uso del simulador dosis-respuesta 1.0 desarrollado en nuestro laboratorio con el objetivo de explorar su usabilidad y niveles de aprendizajes alcanzados. La investigación fue exploratoria con un grupo de alumnos del curso Métodos de investigación I de la carrera de Biología. El trabajo corresponde a una investigación virtual, estructurada, de tipo semicerrado y guiada por supervisión docente especializada, y evaluó dos niveles de conocimiento: el manejo del programa y la comprensión de los conocimientos teóricos. El 69.2% de los alumnos indicaron que el uso del simulador fue fácil. De acuerdo con la taxonomía de Bloom, de 100 a 92.3% realizaron bien actividades en los niveles aplicar y analizar, y de 76.9 a 61.5, en el nivel sintetizar; 7.7% no se adaptaron. Los resultados señalan que los alumnos alcanzan altos niveles de aprendizaje. Los simuladores son una alternativa para la enseñanza cuando las prácticas de laboratorio son costosas.

Los tratamientos estuvieron constituidos por cuatro dosis de MicoFert (250, 500, 750 y 1 000 g/m-1, una variante a razón de 25 kg de N ha-1, y el control. El experimento tuvo una duración de dos años; se realizaron cuatro cortes por año, con una frecuencia de 90 días, a una altura de 25 cm sobre el suelo. La aplicación de MicoFert agrícola incrementó el rendimiento de MS entre 13 y 40 %, de forma proporcional a las dosis aplicadas, respecto al control. El rendimiento más alto de MS (18,44 t ha-1 se obtuvo con la aplicación de nitrógeno, y difirió significativamente del resto de los tratamientos. Fue evidente el efecto que ejerció la inoculación con el biofertilizante en el contenido de fósforo foliar, el cual mostró diferencias significativas entre las variantes con MicoFert y el control. La colonización de raicillas por los hongos micorrízicos arbusculares (HMA fue proporcional al incremento de las dosis de biofertilizante, con valores de 34, 38, 44 y 49 %, respectivamente. La fertilización con nitrógeno y el control presentaron 28 y 26 % de colonización micorrízica, lo que indicó la presencia de HMA nativos.

There was not either reduction of the hematological parameters or increase of creatinin or alanine aminotransferase. An important rise of fetal hemoglobin values (p<0.008 was reported. There were no toxic manifestations and the fulfilment was good. It was proved in this paper that it is not necessary to take the maximum tolerated dose of hydroxyurea to improve the clinical picture in drepanocytic anemia. Two of its advantages are its lower toxicity and the less expensive treatment. This would make possible that a greater amount of children in those countries with scarce resources may benefit from the treatment.

Las principales ventajas de la imagen digital, es decir, amplio rango dinamico, post procesamiento,multiples opciones de observacion, y posibilidades electronicas de transferencia y almacenamiento, estan a la vista, pero pueden ocurrir sobreexposiciones sin un impacto adverso en la calidad de la imagen. En la radiografia convencional, la exposicion excesiva produce una {sup p}elicula negra{sup .} En los sistemas digitales, se obtienen imagenes de buena calidad para un amplio rango de dosis. Es muy sencillo obtener (y borrar) imagenes con sistemas de fluoroscopia digital, y puede existir una tendencia a obtener mas imagenes que las necesarias. En la radiologia digital, la mayor dosis al paciente significa usualmente una mejor calidad de la imagen, por lo que puede haber una tendencia a darle al paciente dosis superiores que las necesarias. Las diferentes practicas de diferentes pruebas de diagnostico por imagen requieren diferentes niveles de calidad de imagen y deberian evitarse dosis que no tengan beneficios adicionales con propositos clinicos. La calidad de imagen puede verse comprometida por niveles inapropiados de compresion de datos y/o técnicas de post procesamiento. Todos estos nuevos desafios deberian ser parte del proceso de optimizacion y deberian incluirse en los protocolos tecnicos y clinicos. Los niveles de referencia para diagnostico locales deberian ser reevaluados para el caso de imagenes digitales, y los parametros de la dosis al paciente deberian ser mostrados en la consola del operador. Cuando se introducen las tecnicas digitales deberian realizarse frecuentes auditorias de las dosis al paciente. En radiologia digital, es necesario brindar capacitacion en la gestion de la calidad de la imagen y de la dosis al paciente. La radiologia digital incluira nuevas normas

    Full Text Available Los insecticidas son una herramienta importante para el control de los insectos transmisores de microorganismos patógenos. El objetivo de este estudio fue determinar la dosis diagnóstica de deltametrina y lambdacihalotrina en el flebotomíneo Lutzomyia evansi (Núñez-Tovar, vector de Leishmania infantum en Colombia. Los insectos se recolectaron en la Estación Experimental de Fauna Silvestre de Colosó, Sucre, un área de reserva natural que no ha sido sometida a presión con insecticidas. Los bioensayos se realizaron en botellas de vidrio, siguiendo el método simplificado de determinación de resistencia del CDC. En los experimentos, se usaron hembras silvestres de L. evansi que fueron expuestas a diferentes concentraciones de los insecticidas por espacio de 80 minutos, tiempo de duración de la prueba. Los valores de dosis diagnóstica hallados fueron 0,00035% para lambdacihalotrina y 0,0007% para deltametrina, con un umbral de resistencia de diez minutos para ambos insecticidas, tiempo en el cual se alcanza una mortalidad del 100%. Los datos de tiempo-mortalidad indican que la lambdacihalotrina tiene un efecto letal sobre L. evansi en menor concentración que la deltametrina, mientras que la última fue menos tóxica.

    Full Text Available El presente trabajo compara tres mezclas formuladas de fertilizantes —una mezcla tradicional; un fertilizante mineral 10-15-20; y un fertilizante orgánico-mineral 8-12-16 en dosis crecientes, con y sin aplicación de materia orgánica (humus de lombriz— en el cultivo de tabaco. El experimento se condujo en un suelo arenoso de irrigación utilizando 2 plántulas de tabaco negro por maceta. La fertilización al suelo para cada dosis de NPK en mg.kg-1/maceta fue: dosis baja (160-60-80, dosis media (320-120-160 y dosis alta (480-180-240. Se utilizó el diseño completo al azar con arreglo factorial, con tres repeticiones y conducido en macetas con 4 kg de suelo. La evaluación consistió en medir el rendimiento en peso fresco de la parte aérea y el peso seco total (parte aérea y radicular de las plantas. Fue posible observar que no existe superioridad en cuanto a la materia fresca y seca total producidas entre las mezclas formuladas utilizadas, con un promedio de 432,5g/maceta y 112,6g/ maceta, respectivamente. Se pudo tener así tres alternativas en la fertilización de tabaco. Sin embargo, con el uso del fertilizante orgánico-mineral se obtendría mayores beneficios en el suelo por el efecto residual que dejaría por contener en su composición un 25% de materia orgánica por cada 100 kg de fertilizante. Conforme aumentan las dosis de fertilización se incrementan también los rendimientos, notándose el efecto directo de los fertilizantes en el sustrato arenoso utilizado, sin salinidad que pueda haber afectado la asimilación de nutrientes. Además, se observó la baja fertilidad del sustrato al comparar el tratamiento adicional 0-0-0 con los demás tratamientos, lo que ha producido mas del 300% en cuanto a rendimiento. No existe efecto significativo en la interacción fertilizante vs. materia orgánica en la producción de materia fresca aérea y seca total, debido a que la dosis de materia orgánica fue baja (1%.

    Full Text Available Introducción: Un amplio rango de estreses ambientales, tales como baja temperatura, sequía, alcalinidad, salinidad, deficiencia y toxicidad de nutrientes son potencialmente dañinos para las plantas. El papel del nitrógeno como nutriente esencial y componente estructural de aminoácidos, proteínas, ácidos nucleicos y otros constituyentes esenciales para el desarrollo ha sido ampliamente documentado en varias especies debido a la importancia en los procesos de crecimiento y producción agrícola. Sin embargo, en la actualidad, existe escasa literatura del efecto de la deficiencia y toxicidad de nitrógeno sobre los compuestos osmoreguladores como indicadores de estrés en plantas. Por lo que el objetivo del presente trabajo fue estudiar los compuestos nitrogenados indicadores de estrés (prolina, glicinabetaina y colina en respuesta a las dosis tóxicas y deficientes de N en frijol ejotero desarrollado en cámara de cultivo bajo condiciones controladas y sistema hidropónico. Método: El nitrógeno fue aplicado a la solución nutritiva en la forma de NH4NO3 y en dosis crecientes: N1 = 1.5 mM, N2 = 3.0 mM, N3 = 6.0 mM, N4 = 12.0 mM, N5 = 18.0 mM y N6 = 24.0 mM de N. Los parámetros analizados fueron la acumulación de biomasa, la concentración de prolina, glicinabetaina y colina en hojas, raíces, semillas y vainas de frijol ejotero cv. Strike. Resultados: La aplicación de dosis deficientes y tóxicas de N afectó la producción de biomasa en frijol, siendo las dosis tóxicas las que afectaron más este parámetro.

Un total de 8,420 eyaculados provenientes de 97 sementales alojados en dos diferentes postas del centro de la República Mexicana fueron evaluados para determinar sus parámetros de producción. De acuerdo a los datos analizados, la edad máxima en la que un semental puede ser utilizado para la colección de semen es de 36 meses y su ritmo de colección en la edad adulta es de una vez cada 5 días. Se encontró también que existe una moderada correlación negativa, entre temperatura ambiental y número de dosis obtenidas de cada semental (r = -0.534, P< .05. Por otro lado, se encontró una capacidad de producción dependiente de la línea genética, siendo los híbridos de Seghers los más productivos contra los sementales de la línea PIC, que resultaron con baja producción de semen. Otros parámetros analizados, fueron las causas de desecho de los sementales, siendo la principal la baja calidad de los eyaculados (hasta un 44.11%, seguido por edad avanzada (29%, problemas varios (atrofia de pene, uretra, entre otros: 12% y problemas de locomoción (6%.

Auswertung und Bewertung aktueller Daten zu Haeufigkeit und Dosis von Roentgenanwendungen sowie von zeitlichen Entwicklungen fuer die Jahre 2007 bis 2014. Die Haeufigkeit von Roentgenanwendungen wurde fuer den ambulanten Bereich ueber Gebuehrenziffern der erbrachten radiologischen Leistungen abgeschaetzt, fuer den stationaeren Bereich mithilfe von Krankenhausstatistiken. Repraesentative Werte fuer die effektive Dosis pro Roentgenanwendung wurden fuer die betrachteten Jahre ueberwiegend aus Daten der Aerztlichen Stellen ermittelt. Im Jahr 2014 wurden in Deutschland etwa 140 Mio. Roentgenanwendungen durchgefuehrt, hiervon etwa 40 % im zahnmedizinischen Bereich. Im Mittel erfolgten 2007-2014 nahezu konstant 1,7 Anwendungen pro Einwohner und Jahr. Neben der zahnmedizinischen Diagnostik wurden am haeufigsten konventionelle Untersuchungen des Skeletts und des Thorax durchgefuehrt. Die CT-Haeufigkeit nahm um ca. 40 % zu. Mit etwa 55 % war der Anstieg bei der MRT zwar noch deutlicher, jedoch wurden insgesamt noch immer mehr CT- als MRT-Untersuchungen durchgefuehrt. Die Dosiswerte pro Untersuchung nahmen trotz der in den letzten Jahren etablierten Methoden zur Dosisreduktion nur leicht ab. In der Konsequenz nahm die mittlere effektive Dosis pro Einwohner im Untersuchungszeitraum von knapp 1,4 auf 1,6 mSv zu - im Wesentlichen aufgrund der zunehmenden CT-Haeufigkeit. Die Prinzipien der Rechtfertigung und Optimierung von medizinischen Strahlenanwendungen sind - insbesondere bei CT-Untersuchungen - in jedem Einzelfall konsequent anzuwenden. (orig.)

    Full Text Available La alta incidencia mundial de meningitis meningocócica por Neisseria meningitidis serogrupo B (N. meningitidis movilizó los recursos de la ciencia hacia su enfrentamiento en un período corto de tiempo. Para el estudio de esta enfermedad fue imprescindible desarrollar modelos experimentales que posibilitaran caracterizar no sólo la capacidad inmunogénica y protectora de los candidatos vacunales, sino también la toxigenicidad del producto. El estudio basado en el modelo ratón Balb/c con la utilización de factores estimulantes de la virulencia, posibilitó el desarrollo experimental de la enfermedad. Consistió en la aplicación de diferentes esquemas de dosis y diluciones de la vacuna (1/2, 1/4, 1/8, 1/16 en solución salina fisiológica 0,85%. Se conformaron 15 grupos de ocho animales cada uno que previamente recibieron Dextrana Férrica (IMEFA y mucina gástrica de cerdo 8% en un volumen total de 0,4 mL, y un grupo control al que le fue administrada la vacuna pura. Se empleó para el reto la cepa 385 de N. meningitidis con una concentración del inóculo de 107 UFC/mL. El esquema de vacunación contempló grupos vacunados con 1, 2, y 3 dosis a los 0,15 y 30 días. Se administraron 0,2 mL del inóculo de N. meningitidis por vía intraperitoneal. Se determinó la dosis letal media (DL50, anticuerpos bactericidas, respuesta serológica por el método de ELISA y se calculó la protección conferida. Se aplicó el método de Log rank para la comparación de los tiempos de sobrevivencia y para el ensayo de ELISA se aplicó el método de superficie ajustada por SPLINE. Hemos demostrado la utilidad del biomodelo ratón Balb/c para comprobar la eficacia de la vacuna VA-MENGOC-BC®. Quedó demostrada la correlación entre los niveles de anticuerpos y la protección conferida por la vacuna, comprobándose además por los ensayos de reto. Se logró obtener una aproximación con respecto a los límites de eficacia de VA-MENGOC-BC® mediante

    Full Text Available Although ionising radiation has been shown to have several beneficial applications for humans, it can also produce detrimental effects in humans and the environment. To adequately protect man and environment from the potential harmful effects of ionising radiation, is essential to know in detail the biological effects produced by it, its characteristics and the various factors that influence these effects. That is the objective of this article, describe the current status of knowledge about biological effects induced by ionising radiation, with special emphasis on those effects occurring after low dose exposures.La radiación ionizante ha mostrado tener diversas aplicaciones beneficiosas para el hombre, pero también puede dañar la salud de las personas y el medio ambiente. Para proteger adecuadamente al hombre de los posibles efectos nocivos de la radiación ionizante es imprescindible conocer en detalle los efectos biológicos producidos por esta, sus características y los distintos factores que influyen en dichos efectos. Ese es el objetivo de este artículo: describir el estado actual del conocimiento sobre los efectos biológicos que puede producir la radiación ionizante, con especial énfasis en aquellos efectos que se producen tras la exposición a dosis bajas.

    2007-12-01

    Full Text Available La vacuna vax-TET® está indicada en la prevención del tétanos y es efectiva si se logra un completo y apropiado esquema de inmunización. Para investigar el potencial tóxico de este producto se realizó una prueba toxicológica con una dosis única, por vía intramuscular, en un volumen de 0,2 mL en ratas Sprague Dawley. La composición de la vacuna de ensayo probada fue la misma de la vacuna comercial. Los animales fueron observados diariamente en busca de síntomas locales y sistémicos de toxicidad. Se realizaron mediciones del consumo de agua y alimento, así como del peso corporal. Dos semanas después de la inoculación las ratas fueron sacrificadas por métodos de eutanasia sin dolor y sometidas a necropsia. No se observaron muertes ni síntomas de toxicidad en los animales estudiados. Tampoco se encontraron diferencias de interés toxicológico entre los grupos experimentales en cuanto a las variables medidas. El estudio anatomopatológico reveló la presencia de formaciones granulomatosas de tipo macrofágico asociadas, fundamentalmente, al hidróxido de aluminio. Estos resultados permitieron concluir que, bajo las condiciones del estudio y según los criterios establecidos, esta vacuna no produce efectos adversos en el modelo animal usado, por lo que se considera potencialmente no tóxica para humanos.

    Two flavonoid glycosides derived from rhamnopyranoside (1) and arabinofuranoside (2) have been isolated from leaves of Persea caerulea for the first time. The structures of 1 and 2 have been established by 1 H NMR, 13 C NMR, and IR spectroscopy, together with LC-ESI-TOF and LC-ESI-IT MS spectrometry. From the MS and MS/MS data, the molecular weights of the intact molecules as well as those of quercetin and kaempferol together with their sugar moieties were deduced. The NMR data provided information on the identity of the compounds, as well as the α and β configurations and the position of the glycosides on quercetin and kaempferol. We have also explored the application of sodium dodecyl sulfate (SDS) normal micelles in binary aqueous solution, at a range of concentrations, to the diffusion resolution of these two glycosides, by the application of matrix-assisted diffusion ordered spectroscopy (DOSY) and pulse field gradient spin echo (PGSE) methodologies, showing that SDS micelles offer a significant resolution which can, in part, be rationalized in terms of differing degrees of hydrophobicity, amphiphilicity, and steric effects. In addition, intra-residue and inter-residue proton-proton distances using nuclear Overhauser effect build-up curves were used to elucidate the conformational preferences of these two flavonoid glycosides when interacting with the micelles. By the combination of both diffusion and nuclear Overhauser spectroscopy techniques, the average location site of kaempferol and quercetin glycosides has been postulated, with the former exhibiting a clear insertion into the interior of the SDS-micelle, whereas the latter is placed closer to the surface.

    Full Text Available En una sala de Electrofisiología del Servicio de Cardiología en donde se efectúan procedimientos guiados con rayos X de ablación con radiofrecuencia y de implantes de desfibrilador biventricular, se registraron dosis mensuales anormalmente elevadas en el dosímetro personal de solapa de una auxiliar de enfermería que trabaja en la misma, con valores de dosis equivalente personal, Hp(10, de 125 mSv y de dosis equivalente personal superficial, Hp(0.07 de 128.1 mSv. Ante la ansiedad producida en la trabajadora al conocer las lecturas de su dosímetro, y dado que no se dispone de precedentes investigados en la instalación, se ha realizado un estudio para dilucidar si la dosis registrada ha podido ser recibida por la trabajadora o si solo ha sido recibida por el dosímetro. Se hacen medidas con un monitor ambiental en condiciones simuladas de los procedimientos, para estimar las dosis reales que pueda recibir el personal de la sala. Se comparan estos valores con los del rendimiento del equipo de RX en haz directo medidos durante la revisión anual de control de calidad del mismo, concluyéndose que ha sido el dosímetro, y no la trabajadora, el que se ha expuesto a radiación directa, siendo la situación más probable la de que dicho dosímetro cayó sobre el tubo de RX, normalmente orientado hacia el techo, un tiempo del orden de 1 minuto. Paralelamente a estas estimaciones dosimétricas, el Servicio de Prevención de Riesgos Laborales realizó la vigilancia de la salud, concluyendo que la trabajadora no tenía ningún indicio de haber recibido dosis de la magnitud registrada por su dosímetro.In a room of electrophysiology from the cardiology service where procedures are made guided with X-Rays of ablation with radiofrequency and from implants ventricular defibrillation; there were registered monthly doses usually high in the same personal dosimeter flap of a nursing assistant who works there with values of equivalent personal doses, Hp (10

    Full Text Available La intoxicación por organofosforados es una de las causas más frecuentes de intoxicación en el mundo y una de las tres normas principales de suicidio, llegando a mortalidades cercanas al 15 %. Esta radica en la inhibición irreversible que sus componentes hacen en la enzima acetilcolinesterasa, llevando con ello a la aparición de signos y síntomas secundarios al exceso de acetilcolina en los sistemas donde actúa. Su manejo aún es controvertido y sigue basándoseen las medidas de descontaminación, utilización de atropina, oximas y benzodiacepinas, sin haber consenso en muchas de las dosis e intervalos de tiempo para la administración de estos medicamentos. En este artículo exponemos un caso en el cual se hace necesario utilizardosis e intervalos de administración de atropina y el uso tardío de las oximas. Con este caso se puede concluir que la administración tardía de oximas y la utilización de grandes cantidades de atropina pueden ser una alternativa en el manejo de este tipo de intoxicación.______________________________________________________________________Organophosphate poisoning is one of the most frequent causes of poisoning in the world and one of the three main forms of suicide, reaching roughly 15% mortality, this lies in the irreversible inhibition that make components in the enzyme acetylcholinesterase, leading thus the signs and symptoms secondary to excessive acetylcholine in the systems where it operates. Its management is still controversial and remains based on the decontaminationmeasures, use of atropine, oximes and benzodiazepines, no consensus on many of the doses and time intervals for administration of these drugs. In this article we present a case in which it becomes necessary to use dose and timing of administration of atropine and late use of oximes. In this case we can conclude that the late administration of oximes using grades and quantities of atropine may be an alternative in handling this type of

MATERIAL Y MÉTODOS: Se realizó un ensayo clínico aleatorizado, en tres comunidades rurales de la región central de México, durante el periodo 2001-2003, para incluir tres posibles alternativas de tratamiento en 786 sujetos de entre 5 y 11 años de edad, de los cuales 92 tuvieron un examen parasitológico positivo (15.1%. El grupo 1 incluyó 27 pacientes que recibieron 400 mg de albendazol en dosis única; el grupo 2 incluyó 34 pacientes a quienes se administró nitazoxanida en dosis de 15 mg/kg/día durante tres días consecutivos; y el grupo 3 incluyó 31 pacientes que recibieron 1.2 g de nitazoxanida en dosis única. Se evaluó diferencia de proporciones mediante prueba exacta de Fisher. RESULTADOS: No existieron diferencias estadísticamente significativas en la efectividad de los tres esquemas de tratamiento: (80.5% con albendazol, comparado con las dos alternativas adicionales de nitazoxanida (67.6% y 71%, respectivamente. Se observó una mayor prevalencia de efectos secundarios con nitazoxanida por kg /día (26.5% y en dosis única (32.2%, en comparación con la dosis única de albendazol (7.4%. CONCLUSIONES: Las evidencias en cuanto a la efectividad y elevada prevalencia de efectos secundarios de la nitazoxanida no justifican aún su utilización como quimiopreventivo masivo para el control de parasitosis intestinal en áreas endémicas. En países con elevada prevalencia de parasitosis intestinal las medidas de prevención primaria que continúan vigentes, y que deben priorizarse, están relacionadas con sanidad pública, introducción de agua potable y drenaje, cloración de agua y manejo adecuado de excretas de animales domésticos, así como educación para la salud.OBJETIVE: To

    Full Text Available This study evaluated the performance, acceptability, and appropriateness of a new, single-use, prefilled injection device called UniJect™ for an outreach immunization application.6 Between April and June 1995, UniJect devices were used by 36 traditional birth attendants to administer tetanus toxoid injections to 2 240 pregnant women during routine, antenatal home visits in the Northern, Ichilos, and Warnes Districts of Santa Cruz, Bolivia. Because tetanus toxoid is relatively heat stable, the traditional birth attendants were able to keep the tetanus toxoid-filled UniJect devices in their homes for up to one month without refrigeration. The devices were stored, transported, and disposed of in an outreach carrier designed to reduce the risks of improper handling and disposal. Data were collected from injection recipients, traditional birth attendants, and supervisors via observation, questionnaires, and post-study interviews. The performance of the UniJect device and its acceptability among all groups was very high. The traditional birth attendants used UniJect properly and safely; there were no reports or observations of device misuse, reuse, or needle-stick. Advantages cited included the fact that the device required no assembly, offered assured sterility, and reduced vaccine wastage sometimes associated with multi-dose vials. The ability to store and transport the vaccine-filled devices without ice also greatly simplified logistics.En este estudio se evaluaron el rendimiento, la aceptabilidad y la conveniencia de la inmunización antitetánica extrainstitucional con un nuevo dispositivo hipodérmico de una sola dosis, el UniJect®.

Dieciseis pacientes (94% del GI fueron considerados libres de enfermedad y un paciente presentó una persistencia local. En el GII, las captaciones patológicas fueron: en 4 pacientes en pulmones; en 4 en mediastino y en 3 a nivel lateral cervical. Dos pacientes con captaciones mediastinales presentaron niveles indetectables de Tg. En el seguimiento, dos pacientes con captaciones latero-cervicales se consideraron libres de enfermedad, cuatro pacientes murieron (tres debido al CDT avanzado y cinco de los restantes tienen enfermedad persistente. En conclusión, la terapia con RI luego de rhTSH fue útil para ablacionar remanentes normales en el GI. Los niveles de Tg estimulados con rhTSH fueron indetectables en dos pacientes con metástasis mediastinales. El uso de rhTSH parece ser una alternativa válida frente a la suspensión de la terapia hormonal en el tratamiento de pacientes con CDT, incrementando la calidad de vida de estos pacientes.

    The aim of the present study consists to determinate the personal equivalent dose Hp(3) at eye lens during the procedures involved in positron emission tomography. We have monitored the nurse's staff which is responsible of handling and dispensing 18F. We characterize the relevant stages as the preparation, the transport and the administration of monodose syringes in terms of occupational dose. We observed that the preparation presents a major contribution to the occupational doses than the other stages. In addition, during those stage there is a correlation between the dose increments and handling activity. To establish the eye lens dose we use the following dosimetry set: a direct readout solid state dosimeter for general purposes calibrated at Hp(10) and a set of thermolumiscent dosimeters specific for 18F calibrated at Hp(3). Finally, for the dose intercomparison between above dosimeters we obtain a correction factor by Monte Carlo. The eye lens dose, with a value of 2.8 ± 0.4 mSv/yr, results more critical than the dose obtained in other locations, as extremities.

    In addition to grafting, there is often an undesirable alteration in the properties of the original polymer when polymer monomer mixtures are irradiated. As a result of irradiation, grafting occurs not only on the original polymeric backbone, but also on the already grafted side-chains. The result is an acceleration of grafting. The effect is especially pronounced in the case of preformed polymers, if irradiation is carried out intermittently. The grafting of styrene can be accelerated by the addition of some solvents which suppress the protective effect of the styrene on the polymer. Grafting can be accelerated by other additives. The swelling properties of the irradiated films were investigated. (author) [French] Lorsque des melanges de polymeres et de monomeres sont soumis a des rayonnements, il se produit souvent, en meme temps que la greffe, une alteration facheuse des proprietes du polymere original. L'irradiation provoque une reaction de greffage, non seulement sur le polymere original, mais aussi sur les chaines laterales deja greffees. Il en resulte une acceleration du processus de greffage. L'effet est particulierement marque dans le cas des polymeres preformes, lorsque l'irradiation est effectuee par intermittence. On peut accelerer le processus de greffage du styrolene en ajoutant certains solvants qui suppriment l'action protectrice du styrolene sur le polymere. On peut aussi accelerer le processus a l'aide d'autres additifs. Les auteurs ont etudie les proprietes de gonflement des pellicules irradiees.

    The fact that humans can take up platinum via the food chain calls for an investigation of the effects of platinum ingestion on the organism. For this purpose a study was carried out on the dose-effect relationships of various platinum compounds using the rat as a model. To take due account of different physiological stages the study included growing, pregnant, and lactating rats. According to present knowledge platinum is primarily emitted in its elemental form by the catalytic converter, i.e. with the formal oxidation number zero, and to a lesser degree in ionic form. Beside elemental platinum the study therefore also involved exposure to PtCl{sub 2} and PtCl{sub 4}. Furthermore, to do justice to the fact that humans and animals take up platinum not only from its primary source but also from plants in the food chain, platinum was also administered as a Pt-II-phytochelatin complex previously isolated from Pt-contaminated material. Study criteria were chosen with a view to obtaining a general indication of potential toxic effects and included parameters such as the live weight curve, haematological status, and platinum accumulation in the body or in specific organs. Of particular interest in pregnant and lactating rats were platinum levels in foetuses and milk.

    Full Text Available Winter rapeseed (Brassica napus L. has potential to become an alternate oilseed crop both for edible oil production and energy agriculture (biofuel production for Turkey. This study was conducted to determine the effect of year, N sources and doses on the yield and quality traits of winter rapeseed in a cereal system in calcareous soils over two seasons, 2000-2001 and 2001-2002, in Central Anatolia. Three N sources, ammonium sulfate, ammonium nitrate and urea, were applied as hand broadcast on the soil surface at five doses (0, 50, 100, 150, and 200 kg N ha-1. The traits investigated were plant height, number of branches and pods per plant, number of seed per pod, thousand seed weight, seed yield, oil and protein content. There were significantly effects on seed yield, oil and protein content, and other yield components due to N sources and rates. In general, ammonium sulfate and urea gave higher seed yield than ammonium nitrate. Mean values of both seasons indicated that 100 and 150 kg N ha-1 rate increased significantly yield and quality traits with regard to other N treatments. The present results highlight the practical importance of adequate N fertilization and true N source in seed yield in winter rapeseed and suggest that ammonium sulfate at 150 kg N ha-1 will be about adequate to meet crop N requirements.El raps (Brassica napus L. tiene potencial para convertirse en un cultivo oleaginoso alternativo para producción de aceite comestible y agricultura energética (producción de biodiesel en Turquía.

    The neutron and gamma doses to individuals exposed in criticality accidents have been recalculated to yield the surface-absorbed dose to the trunk of the body. The relationship is examined between this dose estimate and blood-count profile scores that are based on the scoring system of N. Wald and G. E. Thoma for deviations from the normal of the lymphocyte, neutrophil and platelet-peripheral blood counts. It is shown that a quantity based on the surface-absorbed gamma dose and the Na{sup 24} activity in the blood shows a better correlation with the blood-count profile score and is a better prognostic guide for the degree of radiation injury than any of the conventional dose estimates. The R. B. E's of the heavy-particle recoil doses deduced from these observations are consistent in general with values obtained from experiments on dogs.

    Full Text Available Nutritional management in rice (Oryza sativa L. crops is mainly associated with N fertilization, which is difficult to adjust in field conditions due to variations in soil type and climatic conditions. Between 28 000 and 46 000 ha per year is dedicated to rice production in Chile and profits depend on fertilization. A field experiment determine the effect of N rates and split N fertilization on grain yield and its components was carried out in two locations during two consecutive seasons (2007 to 2009, where five N rates and five split N fertilizations were evaluated. The locations were in Parral (36º2’ S; 72º08’ W, Vertisol and San Carlos (36º19’ S; 71º59’ W, Inceptisol, with N rates of 80, 100, 120, 140, and 160 kg ha-1 applied in different development stages, such as sowing, tillering, panicle initiation, and boot. Results indicate an important seasonal effect on grain yield. Yield increased with N rates higher than 120 and 140 kg ha-1 in San Carlos and Parral, respectively. Moreover, higher productivity with split N fertilization was (1 33% of N at sowing, 33% at tillering, and 34% at panicle initiation or (2 50% of N at sowing and 50% at panicle initiation. Yield components with the highest effect on productivity were affected by the evaluated split N. On the other hand, higher N rates increased the percentage of both stained and sterile grains per panicle.El manejo nutricional del cultivo de arroz (Oryza sativa L. está principalmente asociado con la fertilización nitrogenada, difícil de ajustar en condiciones de campo debido a variaciones en tipo de suelo y condiciones climáticas.

    One goal of radiation protection is the limitation of stochastic effects due to radiation exposure. The probability of occurrence of a radiation induced stochastic effect, however, is only one of several other parameters which determine the radiation detriment. Though the ICRP-concept of detriment is a quantitative definition, the kind of detriment weighting includes somewhat subjective elements. In this sense, the detriment-concept of ICRP represents already at the stage of effective dose a kind of assessment. Thus, by comparing radiation protection standards and concepts interconvertible or with those of environment or occupational protection one should be aware of the possibly different principles of detriment assessment.

El proceso Fenton consiste en tratar la carga contaminante con una combinacion de H{sub 2}O{sub 2} y FeSO4 en condiciones acidas. Se evaluo si la filtracion de los lodos producidos durante el proceso Fenton es un proceso mas eficiente que la sedimentacion. Se determino el tiempo de contacto optimo de la oxidacion Fenton, asi como la dosis optima de los reactivos usados en funcion de la DQO del lixiviado, mediante la determinacion de las mejores relaciones [Fe{sup 2+}]/[H{sub 2}O{sub 2}] y [DQO]/[H{sub 2}O{sub 2}]. Despues de optimizar el proceso, se filtraron las muestras oxidadas y se ensayo la adsorcion mediante columnas empacadas con carbon activado granular. Se concluyo que el lodo generado por el proceso Fenton se remueve mas eficientemente mediante filtracion que por sedimentacion. Los tiempos de contacto optimos fueron de 5 min para la remocion de la DQO y una hora para la remocion de color, tiempo elegido para proteger el carbon activado. Las mejores relaciones para [Fe{sup 2+}]/[H{sub 2}O{sub 2}] y [DQO]/[H{sub 2}O{sub 2}] fueron 0.6 y 9, respectivamente. La eficiencia maxima de remocion despues del proceso de adsorcion fue de 98.9 % para la DQO y 100 % para el color. El indice de biodegradabilidad final alcanzado despues de las pruebas de Fenton-adsorcion fue de 0.24.

    In order to find out whether a change in dose-rate would significantly alter a radiation response, eggs as well as the adults of Tribolium castaneum were tested for viability and fertility respectively after exposure to gamma radiation at different dose-rates. The doses employed were 2000 and 5000 rad and the dose-rates ranged from 126 rad/h to 140 000 rad/h. It was observed that with an increase in dose-rate there was a decline in the fertility of the adults. Similarly the viability of the eggs was considerably reduced as the dose-rate increased, but at very high dose-rates there was a significant increase in viability. The significance of these findings is discussed.

    Intussusception is a medical emergency that occur with higher frequency in children under 2 years of age. Diagnosis can be difficult as the classical triad of abdominal pain, jelly stools and palpable abdominal mass is seen in less than 50% of the patients. However, the diagnosis of intussusception can be established with variable degree of accuracy using plain abdominal x-ray films, ultrasound, computed tomography or barium (or air/saline) enema. Some of these imaging methods are also useful during treatment of this condition. The authors present a review of the literature and a pictorial essay of the imaging findings in patients with intussusception. In addition, a discussion on the current and controversial issues related to the treatment of intussusception is presented. (author)

    Full Text Available No es clara la asociación entre el consumo de café y los cambios en los niveles de presión arterial; si bien algunos estudios muestran una correlación positiva, otros no logran confirmarla. El objetivo de este estudio fue determinar el cambio en los niveles de presión arterial en un grupo de voluntarios normotensos sometidos al consumo de diferentes dosis de café filtrado. Se trata de un estudio prospectivo, clínico controlado, en el cual se conformaron cuatro grupos y se sometieron por un período de seis semanas al consumo de diferentes cantidades de café filtrado: el grupo uno no consumió café, el grupo dos consumió 200 mL, el tres 400 mL y el cuatro 600 mL. Antes y al final de la intervención, en cada sujeto se midieron los niveles de presión arterial; en el grupo control se midió la concentración de cafeína antes, durante y al final de la intervención. Los resultados mostraron grupos comparables por género, edad e índice de masa corporal, sin diferencias significativas en las condiciones basales. Después de la intervención, la presión arterial sistólica y diastólica no mostró diferencia intragrupos, excepto en el grupo cuatro en el cual disminuyó significativamente (p=0,006 la presión arterial diastólica. Entre grupos los cambios en los niveles de presión sistólica y diastólica no fueron significativos (p=0,510 y 0,430 respectivamente. En conclusión, el consumo de diferentes dosis de café filtrado no ocasionó en sujetos normotensos cambios significativos en los niveles de presión arterial; el grupo que se abstuvo de tomar café no mostró disminución significativa de la presión arterial.The association between coffee consumption and changes in blood pressure values is not clear yet.

Se utilizó información de ensayos de fertilización en trigo de diferentes sitios (Otamendi, Balcarce, Mar del Plata y Tandil y años (2002/03 a 2007/08. El modelo cuadrático-plateau produjo los resultados más racionales desde el punto de vista agronómico determinando DOEs menores que el cuadrático. El estadío de macollaje permitió determinar DOEs menores que al momento de la siembra. La diferencia en la DOE entre momentos de fertilización fue menor para las variedades francesas que para las tradicionales, lo que sería explicado por una mayor EUN de las primeras. Por último, para las variedades francesas la potencialidad del año condicionó la DOE en mayor medida que la relación de precios N-grano de trigo. Estos resultados enfatizan la importancia de identificar con precisión el rendimiento objetivo del cultivo ya que el mismo tendría un impacto mayor que los cambios en las relaciones de precios N-grano de trigo a la hora de definir la DOE.Nitrogen fertilization in wheat is a common practice in the SE of Buenos Aires Province.

Les sections efficaces de H etaient sensiblement identiques a celles qui sont donnees dans BNL-325 et les sections efficaces de 0 ,N et C ont ete reprises de NDA 2111-3 (volume A ), ORNL-2389 et NDA 12-16, respectivement.

Les valeurs ainsi obtenues de la repartition de la dose en fonction du TLE, associees aux valeurs de l'EBR recommandees par la CIPR, permettent d'interpreter les effets biologiques de l'exposition aux neutrons. Ces valeurs ont ete comparees aux donnees sur les effets biologiques des neutrons obtenues a la suite de certaines experiences; elles confirment, du moins en partie, les hypotheses generalement admises sur la relation fonctionnelle entre l'EBR et le TLE, par exemple que la possibilite de guerison et l'effet d'oxygene se manifestent essentiellement par les doses a faible TLE. Bien que ces interpretations revetent encore un caractere preliminaire, la repartition de la dose en fonction du TLE pourra servir de base a de nouvelles experiences sur la relation entre l'EBR et le TLE.

    Full Text Available El texto analiza la gestión de los servicios públicos en la ciudad de México, y en particular, la administración de las plazas y los mercados a través de contratas a particulares. La problemática se centra en las dificultades que enfrentó la administración municipal para regular el comercio urbano. La fuente documental empleada es la Ordenanza Municipal de 1840 y el estudio detallado de las comisiones que integraban al Ayuntamiento de México entre 1810 y 1840. La investigación concluye que la falta de un orden jurídico que regulara la gestión municipal provocó una mala organización y planeación en los servicios públicos de la ciudad. Por ello, las contratas, que parecían una salida eficiente en la administración municipal, terminaron por convertirse en negocios entre particulares, debido a la incapacidad del gobierno para vigilarlos y regularlos, así como por la falta de recursos económicos para sostenerlas.

    Radiation accidents continue to occur sporadically and it appears that there is no hope of eliminating them entirely. The management of patients exposed to large doses of radiation is constantly improving because of increasing ability to prevent and treat infection and to control haemorrhage. The possible effectiveness of temporary bone marrow grafts offers promise of a further reduction in mortality. The use of this growing biological information is closely related to, and to a large extent dependent upon, improvements in physical dosimetry for radiation accidents. (author) [French] Des accidents provoques par les rayonnements continuent a se produire de temps a autre et il ne semble guere que l'on puisse esperer les eliminer entierement.

Comme la greffe temporaire de la moelle des os semble devoir donner des resultats, on peut s*attendre a une nouvelle reduction du taux de mortalite.

Tambien es posible que la eficacia de ios injertos temporales de medula osea se traduzca en una disminucion de la mortalidad. El aprovechamiento de estos conocimientos biologicos cada vez mas amplios guarda una estrecha relacion con los perfeccionamientos en materia de dosimetria fisica en caso de accidentes de irradiacion.

    It has been pointed out that medical exposures are the most significant sources of exposure to ionizing radiation for the general population. Inside the medical exposures the most important is the X-ray use for diagnosis, which is by far the largest contribution to the average dose received by the population. From all studies performed in radiology the chest radiography is the most abundant. In an X-ray machine, voltage and current are combined to obtain a good image and a reduce dose, however due to the workload in a radiology service individual dose is not monitored. In order to evaluate the dose due to chest radiography in this work a plate phantom was built according to the ISO recommendations using methylmethacrylate walls and water. The phantom was used in the Imaging department of the Zacatecas General Hospital as a radiology patient asking for a chest study; using thermoluminescent dosimeters, TLD 100 the kerma at the surface entrance was determined.

El objetivo fue determinar el cambio en las concentraciones plasmáticas de homocisteína y presión arterial en un grupo de voluntarios sanos. Se realizó un estudio prospectivo, clínico controlado, en el que se conformaron cuatro grupos de 29 sujetos cada uno, quienes, durante un período de seis semanas, se sometieron al consumo diario de café filtrado. El grupo 1 no consumió café, el grupo 2 consumió 200 mL de café, el grupo 3 400 mL y el 4 600 mL. Antes de la intervención se midieron: presión arterial, homocisteína, índice arterial, ácido fólico eritrocitario y vitaminas B12 y B6. Al final de la intervención, se tomó la presión arterial y se midió la concentración de homocisteína. Los resultados mostraron grupos sin diferencias significativas en las condiciones basales. Después de la intervención, el cambio en los valores de homocisteína entre los grupos, no mostró diferencia significativa y permanecieron dentro de los valores de referencia (p = 0,098. El cambio en los niveles de presión arterial sistólica y diastólica, no fue significativo (p=0,510 y 0,430 respectivamente.

    acerca del uso de la prueba de glucemia en ayunas (PGA y de la prueba de tolerancia a una dosis oral de glucosa con valoración a las dos horas (PTG2h para identificar a adultos hiperglucémicos en Jamaica. Como la PTG2h no se administra normalmente en un contexto clínico, se investigaron los factores asociados con la inutilidad de la PGA para detectar a personas con hiperglucemia según la PTG2h. MÉTODOS: Se examinó una muestra aleatoria de 2 096 adultos de 25 a 47 años de edad que vivían en la ciudad de Spanish Town, Jamaica, para determinar la presencia de diabetes. Una vez que se eliminó a 215 personas por diversos motivos, entre ellos la ausencia de datos, quedaron 1 881 personas entre las cuales se encontraban 187 que se sabía de antemano que tenían diabetes y otras 1 694 que fueron sometidas tanto a la PGA como a la PTG2h. RESULTADOS: La PGA permitió detectar 83 casos de diabetes, mientras que la PTG2h permitió detectar 72. El estadístico kappa de comparación entre los dos criterios de valoración fue de 0,31 (intervalo de confianza de 95%: 0,28-0,34, valor que revela una concordancia moderada. Se observaron 261 casos de intolerancia a la glucosa tras la PTG2h y 92 casos de hiperglucemia en ayunas. En estas últimas 92 personas, la PTG2h sirvió para identificar 34 casos de intolerancia a la glucosa y 14 casos de diabetes. De las personas que se mostraron normoglucémicas según la PGA, 14% tenían intolerancia a la glucosa o diabetes, según la PTG2h. Algunos factores tuvieron valor pronóstico en relación con la falta de detección de la intolerancia a la glucosa o la diabetes. Estos fueron la edad, el índice de masa corporal, la concentración de la obesidad en el tronco y el abdomen, la tensión sistólica y el sexo femenino. De acuerdo con la curva de eficacia diagnóstica, una glucemia en ayunas de 5,1 mmol/L tendría valor pronóstico con respecto a la presencia de una glucemia de 7,8 mmol/L según la PTG2h.

    Nanomedicine covers the use of nanoparticles to the targeted site of action as platforms for building imaging and therapeutic agents against cancer and other human diseases. In particular, gold nanoparticles (AuNp's) have proven to be efficient for the diagnosis and therapy. Interest in the development of AuNp's is due to their extraordinary physical and chemical properties resulting from the effect of its size in the nanoscale, to have an area of easy modification and the radioactive {gamma} and {beta} emitter ({sup 198}Au; E{gamma} = 0,411 MeV, {beta}{sub max} = 0,96 MeV; T{sub 1/2} = 2,69 days), having the advantage of being able to be applied as a diagnostic tool for molecular photon emission tomography (SPECT) using only a small amount of radioactive gold . In this study were synthesized AuNp's, whose surface is functionalized with a biocompatible polymer (modified polyethylene glycol) and folic acid in order to render them stealth and specific tumors that over express the folate receptors. The techniques of Dynamic Light Scattering (DLS), zeta potential ({zeta}), transmission electron microscopy (TEM) and UV-Visible absorption spectroscopy were employed to characterization of the size and geometry of the nanoparticles, in addition to confirming its binding to thiol -PEG and PEG-thiol Folate. The results of UV-Visible and TEM showed the formation of dispersed AuNp's ranging in size from 8-12 nm with a strong absorption around 520 nm, relating to a maximum of surface plasmon resonance. DLS results showed a hydrodynamic diameter of 10 and 14 nm. The (pH {approx} 5.0 to 6.0) ranged {zeta} potential values of the dispersions prepared between -16.2 and -42.1 mV, indicating stable colloidal suspensions. To determine the real concentration of gold in the samples, it was used neutron activation in the nuclear reactor TRIGA MARK I IPR-R1 CDTN / CNEN of Belo Horizonte. Biocompatibility studies in vitro and in vivo of the samples were carried out showing that they have low toxicity in the models used. We evaluated studies of the internalization of gold nanoparticles functionalized with thiol-PEG-folate-FITC in cells over expressing folate receptors. It was found that the nanoparticles are able to enter the cell, is distributed throughout the cytoplasm and nucleus. According to the results obtained, it can be concluded that it was produced gold nanoparticles dispersed stealth and specific for tumors that overexpression folate. (author)

    I-131 thyroid cancer therapy is based on the strategy of concentrating radioactive iodine in the thyroid tissue, to completetly eliminate thyroid tissue and functioning thyroid cancer metastases remaining after thyroidectomy. In Brazil, fixed activities of {sup 131} I generally are given, sometimes either delivering insufficient activities to ablate all of the remnants, or unnecessarily high activities, with patients remaining in the hospital for some period of time. This investigation proposes a protocol of individualized planning of ablative doses, based on individual patients metabolisms and measured thyroid remnant masses. Simulated thyroid remnants were fabricated in various forms, volumes and activities, and optimum image acquisition parameters were determined using Single-Photon Emission Computed Tomography 9SPECT). Resultant images were evaluated, to determine the apparent volumes and the {sup 131} I concentrations. I-131 metabolism was studied in 9 patients who had undergone thyroidectomies. Their thyroid remnant masses were determined applying the same parameters used in SPECT simulation studies, and the optimum activity for their therapy was calculated and compared to the established fixed activity of 3.7 GBq (100 mCi), which would have normally been assigned. Background subtraction using the method of percent maximum counts, using a value of 67.5%, combined with scatter correction (triple energy window method), was shown to be optimum for SPECT quantification of volumes between 3-10 ml. Errors in the method were below 9% for sources with regular geometries and around 11% for sources with irregular geometries. In the patient studies, it was observed that 78% of patients could have received reduced activities of {sup 131} (from 0.8-3-2. GBq (20-87 nCi). In addition, 33% of these patients could have received low enough activities to have discharged from the hospital, using an individualized administration scheme. This could also have resulted in a dose reduction for many organs, such as the narrow and gonads, of up to 78.4%.Possible benefits to the institution also include the use of less radioactive material and a reduction in radiation exposures to the staff during the manipulation and administration of the {sup 131} I. To facilitate the calculations of the optimum therapeutic activity of {sup 131} I for individual patients, a simple and fast dose planning program was created (PlanDose). The program has been set up to evaluate thryroid remant ablation, but it can also be used for the calculation of the activity to be administered for treatment of hyperthyroidism. This protocol of calculated optimal patient-specific {sup 131} I. activities allows a better determination of the necessary ablative dose for patients with differentiated carcinoma of the thyroid, and is an example of optimizing the practice of radiation protection.

(author) [Spanish] Como base de sistemas dosimetricos para el intervalo de dosis de rayos y de 50 mrad a 5 Mrad, el autor ha comparado la radiofotoluminiscencia y la alteracion del color del vidrio al fosfato con la termoluminiscencia del fluoruro de litio. Midio la luminiscencia inducida en un vidrio al fosfato de bajo numero atomico, activado con plata, con ayuda de un fluorometro comercial (dosimetro Toshiba de vidrio fluorado) completado con- un espectrofotometro para medir las variaciones de la densidad optica en la region de las dosis elevadas. Estudio los efectos de diversos procedimientos para limpiar el vidrio. La termoluminiscencia del fluoruro de litio se midio con un aparato de lectura de laboratorio a fin de obtener curvas de luminosidad, integrandose seguidamente la superficie situada bajo el pico apropiado. El espectro de emision de la termoluminiscencia se determino empleando filtros opticoe que sirvieron tambien para reducir lo mas posible los efectos debidos a la radiacion infrarroja procedente de la placa calentadora. Se estudiaron los efectos ejercidos sobre el pico de tribotermoluminiscencia por los filtros opticos y por una atmosfera de nitrogeno. El funcionamiento de ambos sistemas se ha estudiado y comparado segun diversos criterios. El vidrio abarca un intervalo muy amplio, desde 5 * 10{sup -2} a 5 * 10{sup 6} rad, es decir, un intervalo dinamico

    Full Text Available La oxitocina es el medicamento más comúnmente asociada con la prevención de complicaciones perinatales y recientemente fue incluida por el Instituto para la Administración Medicamentosa Segura (Institute for Safe Medication Practices - ISMP en una pequeña lista de medicamentos “con alto grado de riesgos”, lo que puede “necesitar salvaguardas especiales para reducir el riesgo de error”. Las recomendaciones actuales para administrar este medicamento son vagas en relación a la indicación, tiempo de uso, dosis y el monitoreo de los efectos maternos y fetales. Una revisión de los datos clínicos y farmacológicos disponibles sugiere que las orientaciones específicas y basadas en evidencias para administrar oxitocina durante el parto puede derivarse de datos disponibles. Si implementadas, estas prácticas pueden reducir la probabilidad de daños al paciente. Esto sugiere el foco de las orientaciones para la administración electiva limitada de oxitocina, considerar estrategias que disminuyan la necesidad de usar oxitocina, confiar en terapéuticas de bajas dosis de oxitocina, la adhesión a definiciones semicuantitativas específicas sobre parto adecuado e inadecuado, y la aceptación de que, una vez que la actividad uterina adecuada sea alcanzada, es generalmente preferible esperar más tiempo que aumentar la infusión de oxitocina. El uso de protocolos conservadores y específicos para monitorear los efectos de la oxitocina en la madre y en el bebé tiende no sólo a aumentar los resultados, mas también a reducir los conflictos entre miembros del equipo obstétrico. Implementar estas orientaciones parece ser apropiada en una cultura cada vez más focalizada en la seguridad del paciente.

El punto final primario, INR < 3.5 a las 24 horas de administrar la dosis, se alcanzó en 70% de los pacientes en Vit-K y 20% en placebo. La reducción absoluta del riesgo y su intervalo de confianza de 95%: RAR (IC95% = 50% (14.4 a 85.6 ρ = 0.028; NNT (IC95% = 2(1.3 a 6.9; no se registraron eventos adversos, ni INR < 2 luego de 24 horas de tratamiento. Los resultados obtenidos son consistentes con estudios donde se administró Vit-K en preparación específica para vía oral. Así la Vit-K en presentación parenteral, administrada por vía oral, es más efectiva y segura que simplemente detener la administración de warfarina para revertir la excesiva anticoagulación, en donde no exista presentación específica oral de Vit-K o ésta sea muy costosa.

Tambien se deduce de estos experimentos que la eficacia biologica relativa es funcion de la dosis. A menudo, la accion de los neutrones rapidos y de los rayos X depende de diferentes procesos radiobiologicos. Seria arbitrario establecer relaciones lineales entre las dosis de dichas radiaciones.

    In the Instituto Peruano de Energia Nuclear (IPEN) we use the chemical dosimetry Astm-E-1026 Fricke as a standard dosimetric system of reference and different routine dosimetric systems of high doses, according to the applied doses to obtain the desired effects in the treated products and the doses range determined for each type of dosimeter. Fricke dosimetry is a chemical dosimeter in aqueous solution indicating the absorbed dose by means an increase in absorbance at a specific wavelength. A calibrated spectrophotometer with controlled temperature is used to measure absorbance. The adsorbed dose range should cover from 20 to 400 Gy, the Fricke solution is extremely sensitive to organic impurities, to traces of metal ions, in preparing chemical products of reactive grade must be used and the water purity is very important. Using the referential standard dosimetric system Fricke, was determined to March 5, 2013, using the referential standard dosimetric system Astm-1026 Fricke, were irradiated in triplicate Fricke dosimeters, to 5 irradiation times (20; 30; 40; 50 and 60 seconds) and by linear regression, the dose rate of 5.400648 kGy /h was determined in the central point of the irradiation chamber (irradiator Gamma cell 220 Excel), applying the decay formula, was compared with the obtained results by manufacturers by means the same dosimetric system in the year of its manufacture, being this to the date 5.44691 kGy /h, with an error rate of 0.85. After considering that the dosimetric solution responds to the results, we proceeded to the irradiation of a sample of 200 g of cereal instant food, 2 dosimeters were placed at the lateral ends of the central position to maximum dose and 2 dosimeters in upper and lower ends as minimum dose, they were applied same irradiation times; for statistical analysis, the maximum dose rate was 6.1006 kGy /h and the minimum dose rate of 5.2185 kGy /h; with a dose uniformity of 1.16. In medical material of micro pulverized bone for implants with a weight of 1393 g the maximum dose rate of 6.5276 kGy /h, the minimum dose rate of 3.5684 kGy /h and the dose uniformity of 1 83 were determined. Then, based on the minimum dose rate irradiation times were calculated for different doses to evaluate in the microbial decontamination of food (3, 5, 8 and 12 kGy) and the sterilization of medical material by radiation (15, 20, 25 and 40 kGy), corroborating the applied doses with routine dosimeters of ethanol chlorobenzene (1-100 kGy) and perspex network 4034 (5-50 kGy). Other routine dosimeters used in different applications according to the doses range are Gafchromic Hd (40-400 Gray) for induced mutation by radiation and the development of new varieties of plants, the sterile insect technique to eradicate pests, quarantine treatment to solve plant health problems. Ambar Perspex 3042 C (3-15 kGy) for microbial decontamination of dried foods, spices, aromatic herbs, medicinal plants, etc. GEX B-3000 (1-140 kGy) and FWT (0.5-200 kGy) for sterilization of medical and pharmaceutical material, cosmetics, biological tissues, etc. The minimum dose rate allowing to calculate the irradiation times to apply the desired dose for the research or industrial processes, taking into account the density and geometry of product. Is notorious the difference in dose uniformity in food (1, 16) and medical material (1, 83) due to the geometry and relative density of the products within the irradiation cylinder. (author)

    desencadena un estímulo doloroso muy intenso. Este estudio tuvo el objetivo de evaluar la seguridad y la eficacia de diferentes combinaciones de fármacos en la anestesia para balneoterapia. MÉTODO: Con la aprobación del Comité de Ética, fueron estudiados 200 procedimientos de balneoterapia en 87 grandes quemados adultos. En todos los casos se usó el midazolam. Se utilizaron frascos numerados de la cetamina, y cuando se usaron no se sabía si era racémica o S (+. Todas las mañanas, se hacía el sorteo para saber si los procedimientos de ese día serían comandados por el fentanil o no. Quedaron establecidos cuatro grupos: ISO/sf (isómero S(+ sin el fentanil, ISO/cf (isómero S(+ con el fentanil, RAC/sf (cetamina racémica sin el fentanil y RAC/cf (cetamina racémica con el fentanil. Las dosis iniciales propuestas fueron: midazolam 0,06 mg.kg-1, cetamina 1,0 a 1,1 mg.kg-1, fentanil 0,8 ¼g.kg-1; las dosis adicionales se administraban conforme a lo necesario. RESULTADOS: En solo un caso hubo recuerdo de dolor durante la balneoterapia. En el grupo que recibió la cetamina S(+, la añadidura del fentanil no mostró ventajas. Asociado a la forma racémica, el fentanil redujo la dosis total y el número de bolo de la cetamina. La extensión de la superficie corporal quemada fue el principal determinante de la intensidad de dolor posprocedimiento. La menor intensidad de dolor posprocedimiento, fue el principal factor considerado por el paciente para su satisfacción por la anestesia recibida. CONCLUSIONES: Las cuatro diferentes combinaciones de fármacos fueron seguras y permitieron la ausencia de dolor durante la balneoterapia. Las características no vinculadas directamente a los anestésicos, tuvieron una mayor importancia en la definición del dolor posprocedimiento, que fue la principal característica considerada por el gran quemado para definir su satisfacción con la anestesia recibida.BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: The care of the wounds of major burn patients triggers

CONCLUSIONES: El remifentanil altero las variables electrofisiológicas cardíacas, lo que en dosis mayores que las estudiadas podría causar bradicardia sinusal, asistolia y disturbios de conducción.BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Remifentanil is an opiod with fast onset of action and short acting, and its use in short-duration procedures has increased in the last few years. Bradycardia and asystole are among the side effects reported. The objective of this study was to evaluate the effects of this drug in cardiac conduction and refractory period in human beings. METHODS: A prospective study with 16 patients, ages 18 to 65, both genders, ASA I to III, undergoing elective intracardiac electrophysiological study, was undertaken. Patients with disorders of the sinoatrial node and those with severe cardiac blocks were excluded. In the laboratory of electrophysiology, patients were sedated with midazolam (0.03 mg.kg-1 after 5 minutes the degree of sedation and degree of pain, systolic and diastolic blood pressure, heart rate and respiratory rate, and oxygen saturation were evaluated. The electrophysiologist evaluated cardiac conduction (duration of the QRS complex, and AA, AH, HV, and PA intervals, duration of sinoatrial node recovery, and cardiac refractory period (refractory period of the right atrium, right ventricle, and atrioventricular node. After the initial measurements, remifentanil was administered (bolus of 0.5 µg.kg-1 + infusion of 0.05 µg.kg-1.min-1 and, after 20 minutes, the same parameters were evaluated. RESULTS: There was a reduction in systolic and diastolic blood pressure (p = 0.0001 between M0 and M1, and significant differences in respiratory rate and oxygen saturation, which were not statistically significant.

Una vez definidos los criterios de inclusión, fueron seleccionados 22 estudios, agrupados por semejanza de tratamiento (nº de series, frecuencia semanal, intensidad, intervalos y orden de los ejercicios. Técnicas de estadística descriptiva auxiliaron en la determinación de posibles tendencias en las relaciones dosis-respuesta. Al identificarse, esas tendencias fueron analizadas cualitativamente. De todas las variables revisadas, solamente para la intensidad de sobrecarga fueron encontradas evidencias, lo que permite afirmar que cargas mayores serían más eficaces para inducir un aumento de fuerza a esa edad. En relación a las demás variables, los resultados disponibles en la literatura no dan respaldo para realizar inferencias seguras respecto al mejor delineamiento de programas de entrenamiento que alíen, al mismo tiempo, efectividad y seguridad. Por tanto, se recomienda que estudios posteriores sean realizados para comparar experimentalmente los efectos de la manipulación de esas variables sobre la fuerza muscular de ancianos.Muscular force is considered an important component of physical exercise programs. The results of this type of training depend on the combination of the number of repetitions, series, overload, sequence and intervals between series and exercises. However, it is still not very clear yet what the best combination of these variables for a good stimulus/response relationship in elderly people is. The objective of this study was to analyze the research on power-training for elderly people by means of systematic revision

Des experiences a l'aide du spectre de fission bien defini provenant d'un assemblage critique non blinde fournissent constamment des evaluations de dose de neutrons ne s'ecartant pas plus de 10% en plus et en moins des mesures dosimetriques de reference. En outre, du fait de la position anatomique fixe des echantillons pileux, on. peut connaitre l'orientation et le parametre d'asymetrie de l'exposition en comparant les activites specifiques d'echantillons provenant de differentes regions du corps. On a constate a l'occasion de trois emballements critiques qui ont fait des victimes que, dans chaque cas, les expositions etaient nettement dissymetriques. Ainsi, le dosage du {sup 32}P sur le systeme pileux fournit des renseignements complementaires de grande valeur que l'on peut comparer avec les evaluations de l'exposition totale du corps aux neutrons par la mesure de la teneur du sang en {sup 24}Na. Des estimations du rendement de fission, fondees sur les geometries deduites dans chaque cas, concordent bien avec les evaluations independantes des fissions totales obtenues par des methodes analytiques plus classiques.

    The embryo or the fetus can be irradiated as result of radiological procedures of diagnosis of therapy in where the beam effects directly on the same one or in tissues or peripherical organs. Some authors have suggested that in the first stages of the pregnancy the dose in ovaries can be the good estimated of the dose in embryo or fetus. In advanced conditions of the development, probably also in the early stage, is more appropriated to specify the dose in the embryo or fetus equal of the uterus. The dose in the uterus is a good estimated so much for external irradiation as for radionuclides incorporation.

    The human being is exposed to strong artificial radiation sources, mainly of two forms: the first is referred to the occupationally exposed personnel (POE) and the second, to the persons that require radiological treatment. A third form less common is by accidents. In all these conditions it is very important to estimate the absorbed dose. The classical biological dosimetry is based in the dicentric analysis. The present work is part of researches to the process to validate the In situ Fluorescent hybridation (FISH) technique which allows to analyse the aberrations on the chromosomes. (Author)

    For practical radiation protection purposes it is supposed that stochastic radiation effects a determined by a proportional dose relation (LNT). Radiobiological and radiation epidemiological studies indicated that in the low dose range a dependence on dose rates might exist. This would trigger an overestimation of radiation risks based on the LNT model. OCRP had recommended a concept to combine all effects in a single factor DDREF (dose and dose-Rate effectiveness factor). There is still too low information on cellular mechanisms of low dose irradiation including possible repair and other processes. The Strahlenschutzkommission cannot identify a sufficient scientific justification for DDREF and recommends an adaption to the actual state of science.

    Full Text Available The naturally occurring polyphenol, resveratrol (RSV, is known for a broad range of actions. These include a positive impact on lifespan and health, but also pro-apoptotic anti-cancer properties. Interestingly, cell culture experiments have revealed a strong impact of RSV on mitochondrial function. The compound was demonstrated to affect mitochondrial respiration, structure and mass of mitochondria as well as mitochondrial membrane potential and, ultimately, mitochondria-associated cell death pathways. Notably, the mitochondrial effects of RSV show a very strict and remarkable concentration dependency: At low concentrations, RSV (<50 μM fosters cellular antioxidant defense mechanisms, activates AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK- and sirtuin 1 (SIRT1-linked pathways and enhances mitochondrial network formation. These mechanisms crucially contribute to the cytoprotective effects of RSV against toxins and disease-related damage, in vitro and in vivo. However, at higher concentrations, RSV (>50 μM triggers changes in (sub-cellular Ca2+ homeostasis, disruption of mitochondrial membrane potential and activation of caspases selectively yielding apoptotic cancer cell death, in vitro and in vivo. In this review, we discuss the promising therapeutic potential of RSV, which is most probably related to the compound’s concentration-dependent manipulation of mitochondrial function and structure.

    Full Text Available Abstract Background One third of all cancer patients will develop bone metastases and the vertebral column is involved in approximately 70% of these patients. Conventional radiotherapy with of 1–10 fractions and total doses of 8-30 Gy is the current standard for painful vertebral metastases; however, the median pain response is short with 3–6 months and local tumor control is limited with these rather low irradiation doses. Recent advances in radiotherapy technology – intensity modulated radiotherapy for generation of highly conformal dose distributions and image-guidance for precise treatment delivery – have made dose-escalated radiosurgery of spinal metastases possible and early results of pain and local tumor control are promising. The current study will investigate efficacy and safety of radiosurgery for painful vertebral metastases and three characteristics will distinguish this study. 1 A prognostic score for overall survival will be used for selection of patients with longer life expectancy to allow for analysis of long-term efficacy and safety. 2 Fractionated radiosurgery will be performed with the number of treatment fractions adjusted to either good (10 fractions or intermediate (5 fractions life expectancy. Fractionation will allow inclusion of tumors immediately abutting the spinal cord due to higher biological effective doses at the tumor - spinal cord interface compared to single fraction treatment. 3 Dose intensification will be performed in the involved parts of the vertebrae only, while uninvolved parts are treated with conventional doses using the simultaneous integrated boost concept. Methods / Design It is the study hypothesis that hypo-fractionated image-guided radiosurgery significantly improves pain relief compared to historic data of conventionally fractionated radiotherapy. Primary endpoint is pain response 3 months after radiosurgery, which is defined as pain reduction of ≥ 2 points at the treated vertebral site on the 0 to 10 Visual Analogue Scale. 60 patients will be included into this two-centre phase II trial. Conclusions Results of this study will refine the methods of patient selection, target volume definition, treatment planning and delivery as well as quality assurance for radiosurgery. It is the intention of this study to form the basis for a future randomized controlled trial comparing conventional radiotherapy with fractionated radiosurgery for palliation of painful vertebral metastases.

    The patients which are subjected to computerized tomography tests are exposed to relatively high doses given as result doses on organs that are not matter to test. It was realized a dose levels raising in patients subjected to tests by T C, utilizing to measure this magnitude, TLD-100 thermoluminescent dosemeters which were put directly on the patient, in eye regions, thyroid, breast and navel; founding doses fluctuating between 29.10-49.39 mGy in organs examined and dose values between 0.21-29.10 mGy for organs that no matter to test. The applications of ionizing radiations in medicine do not have dose limits, but paying attention to the radiological protection optimization principle, it is recommended the use of clothes to anti-rays protection for zones not examined, getting with this to reduce the level doses as low as possible, without this to diminish the test quality.

La producción de materia seca de la parte aérea, raíz y total de la planta fue diferente en los ecotipos de S capitata. Así mismo hubo diferencias significativas en la concentración, absorción y translocación del cobre por lo ecotipos y el cultivar Capica. El requerimiento diferencial de cobre, manifestado en la producción de materia seca en la parte aérea en el nivel 0.05 ppr por los ecotipos CIAT 1693 y 1728 por el cultivar Capica (CIAT 102801, se define como el resultado de las relaciones evolutivas de cada ecotipo con el nivel de cobre disponible en la solución del suelo.In the greenhouse ecotypes of Stylosanthes capitata were cultivated to observe their behavior under different copper concentrations. A nutrient solution based on Arnon and Hoagland's (1/10 was used to simulate the acidity and the fertility of well drained savannas of the Eastern Planes of Colombia. Six concentrations of copper were used (O, 0.05, 0.1, 0.2, 0.4 and 0.8 ppm with rewal of the nutrient solution every 15 days, and applications of nitrogen (14 ppm/week and iron (1 ppm, three times/week.

A differential behavior of Stylosanthes capitata ecotypes responses to applied copper was observed in relation to dry matter production in aerial, part, root and total plant. So, there were significant differences on the concentration, absorption and translocation of this element by these ecotypes and the Capica cultivar. The differential copper requirements, manifest by the dry matter produced in the aerial part by CIAT 1693,CIAT 1728, and cv. Capica (CIAT 10280 in the 0.05 ppm treatment, seems to be the product of specific evolutional relations of each ecotype with the available copper level in the soil.

    In the last years the methodologies to determine the dose in computed tomography have been revised. In this work was realized a dosimetric study about the exploration protocols used for simulation of radiotherapy treatments. The methodology described in the Report No. 111 of the American Association of Medical Physiques on a computed tomograph of two cuts was applied. A cylindrical phantom of water was used with dimensions: 30 cm of diameter and 50 cm of longitude that simulates the absorption and dispersion conditions of a mature body of size average. The doses were determined with ionization chamber and thermoluminescent dosimetry. The results indicate that the dose information that provides the tomograph underestimates the dose between 32 and 35%.

  11. The dose makes the poison. Even for radiation; Die Dosis macht das Gift. Auch bei Strahlenbelastung

    The dose makes the poison, a quote by Paracelsus a doctor who lived half a millennium ago, is still valid today. Nevertheless this general accepted fact is being excluded in relation to ionizing radiation, which is wrongly considered as radioactive radiation. Here applies the LNT-Hypothesis (Linear No Threshold), agreed on by the ICRP, the Commission on Radiological Protection, a dose-to-effect relationship, which is based on the EU directives and the German Radiation Protection Ordinance. The LNT-hypothesis states, that even every smallest dose of radiation already provides a potentiality of danger and was introduced as precaution assuming that self-healing mechanisms even through weak radiation of damaged cells can be excluded and every damage caused by radiation inevitably leads to cell mutation and with it to cancer development. Without any further knowledge assumptions were made, that the same mechanism for cancer development applies for high and small doses. This assumption turned out to be wrong, as it is increasingly reported on findings which show, that smaller doses of ionized radiation demonstrably does not cause any damage, but on the contrary can even be healthy.

    Full Text Available Development of sorghum processing industries is essential in expanding sorghum market as wells as it’s an economic value. Fertilizer is needed in planting. Nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium availabilities are the most limiting factors for maximum growth and yield. Sorghum (Numbu Variety was planted to evaluate the maximum and optimum rates of N, P, and K fertilizers. The research was conducted in Cikarawang field, Darmaga, Bogor from MarchJuly 2015 with multi-nutrient response method. Each experiment evaluated different rates of N, P, and K fertilizer with randomized complete block design and three replications. The fertilizer rates were 0, 50, 100, 150, and 200% of recommendation rate (100% N = 120 kg N ha-1, 100% P = 36 kg P2O5 ha-1, and 100% K = 90 kg K2O ha-1. The result showed relative yields of sorghum increased quadratically based on y = -0,0015x2 + 0,4011x + 67,571 for N, y = -0,0012x2 + 0,2917x + 78,457 for P2O5, and y = -0,001x2 + 0,2777x + 74,457 for K2O. The maximum rate for each nutrient was 160,4-43,7-124,9 kg N-P2O5-K2O ha-1. Fertilizer recommendation based on P threshold (no P was 36,7-0,0-13,7 kg N-P2O5-K2O ha-1, K threshold (no K was 22,0-0,0-0,0 kg N-P2O5-K2O ha-1, and no fertilizer needed on N threshold. The optimum rate fertilizer based on the yield vs. cost rule, therefore, the most economical recommendation would be 160,4-43,7-124,9 kg N-P2O5-K2O ha-1.

    CT is widely used in medical imaging due to high availability, relatively low cost, and excellent diagnostic yield. Newer applications like coronary CTA, CT colonography, and CT perfusion imaging are integrated in clinical pathways. Although there is a high level of consensus that the benefits of CT exceeds the risks of radiation exposure for appropriate indications, concerns have been raised regarding the potential of cancer induction. Keeping dose as low as reasonably achievable remains the most important task. Dose reduction strategies are presented and discussed.

    The natural history of metastasis colorectal cancer has being clearly modified in terms of response rate, time to progression and overall survival, once the anti-EGFR monoclonal antibodies (cetuximab and panitumumab) have emerged in combination with the standard cytotoxic chemotherapy (FOLFOX and FOLFIRI). However, the benefit from cetuximab and panitumumab is only confined to KRAS-wild type (KRAS-wt) colorectal tumors, while KRAS mutated tumors do not respond to these drugs. The 65 % of colorectal tumors are KRAS-wt tumors, but efficacy of antiEGFR therapies is detected only in 60-70 % of these KRAS-wt tumors. Other biomarkers and molecular pathways must be involved in the response of the antiEGFR therapies for the KRAS-wt colorectal tumors, such as the EGFR ligands, the EGFR-phosphorilated levels, the number of EGFR copies, the status of the KRAS effected B-RAF and the alternative intracellular signaling pathways PIK3CA/PTEN/AKT and JAK/STAT. A battery of these biomarkers is needed to select the most sensitive patients to the antiEGFR therapies. This pattern may represent a novel favorable cost-effectiveness tool to develop tailored treatments. A review of these biomarkers and molecular pathways, involved in the antiEGFR therapies response, is performed. (Author) 68 refs.

    Novel statistics show that prostate cancer is the third mortality neoplasia type in man and reaches the first level after 75 years old. The disease appears without signal at initial stages of the prostate cancer, period at which it will be easily treated. The development of the prostate carcinoma in patients depends on the tumor histological degree, stage of the disease at the diagnostic time, tumoral mass, patient age and patient general health. The prostate specific antigen (PSA) is the tumor marker used to premature disease detection, stagement and patient monitoring after treatment. Distinct therapies or in association have been established, together with a premature diagnosis, to increase the patient survival, achieving the best health quality and disease heal. The applied gland dose and its profile are distinct between brachytherapy and teletherapy.The present paper describes several therapies applied to control the prostate tumors, standing radioactive implants (I{sup 125} ) and conventional radiotherapy. The goal of this paper is to show the different PSA levels resulting after radiation therapy, look upon tumor biology aspects, isodose profiles and serum PSA levels. (author)

    Full Text Available Desde 1921, los beneficios alcanzados por las investigaciones sobre insulinoterapia han sido constantes. Sin embargo, el temor a las hipoglucemias y la rigidez horaria para administrar la insulina aún interfieren sobre la adherencia al tratamiento, que es esencial para lograr un buen control de la glucemia y minimizar las complicaciones en los pacientes con diabetes. En este contexto, se analiza la posibilidad de utilizar un análogo de insulina ultra-lento (degludec que posee un perfil farmacocinético prolongado y predecible por más de 24 horas. En ensayos clínicos demostró que, al administrarlo en un esquema de dosis flexible mantiene un buen control de la glucemia, sin que aumente el riesgo de hipoglucemias. Si bien en la práctica clínica es aconsejable seguir un plan establecido, la posibilidad de flexibilizar el horario en la aplicación diaria del análogo ultra-lento en caso de ser necesario, podría mejorar la adherencia en pacientes con una vida social y laboral activa y poco previsible.

Se hallo que este virus de cerebro de ratón, aunque poseía un neurotropismo aumentado, había perdido mucho viscerotropismo, Io cual sugirió su empleo como agente antigénico en la vacunación contra la fiebre amarilla. En 1931, Sawyer, Kitchen y Lloyd (2 anunciaron un método de vacunación en el que se usaba virus de cerebro de ratón simultáneamente como dosis adecuada de suero humano inmune para contrarrestar la actividad patógena de aquel. Este método de vacunación cumplió con su finalidad inmediata que era terminar con la gran serie de infección y muerte entre los investigadores de la fiebre amarilla, pero no era practico para uso en grande escala en el control de la fiebre amarilla, a causa de la dificultad de obtener y administrar la cantidad de suero inmune requerida.

Sambilata (Andrographis paniculata is a tropical herb which has antifeeding property and could reduce rice tungro virus transmission by the rice green leafhopper (GLH, Nephotettix virescens.  Series of test were conducted to clarify the effect of sublethal doses of sambilata to the fecundity and natural enemies activity of the GLH. The objective of the test was to know wether sublethal dose of sambilata could cause physiological or ecological resurgence. The results of test showed that foliar spraying of sambilata extract at concentration of 100 and 1000 ppm to rice seedlings reduced the GLH females’s fecundity. Spraying sambilata extract up to dose of 100 ppm on rice seedlings and GLH did not reduce Lycosa preying activity. Egg parasitoid activity was not affected by sambilata application on rice seedlings bore GLH eggs. Thus  the probability of sublethal dose of sambilata to cause physiological or ecological resurgence was low.

    Full Text Available Effectiveness of High Dose Vitamin A Supplementation on The Recovery Rate and Immune Status of Underfive Children Suffering From Tuberculosis.Tuberculosis (TB, the infectious disease, is still one of the health problems in Indonesia. TB does not just make the people sick physically, but also interfere the immunity. As we have known that vitamin A can improve the immunity. The aimed of this randomized double blind study was to know the effect of high dose vitamin A on the improvement, immune status and the relationship between vitamin A and immune status in TB. Sixtyfive underfive children were selected from the Pediatrics Wards for out patient in Salak and Clsarua Hospital. They were grouped into 11 treatment group who received standard regimen therapy for TB plus high dose vitamin A in each month for 6 months and 21 control group who received the same TB regimen plus placebo also in each month for 6 months. Data on physical examination, weight, height, hemoglobin (Hb, hematocrit (Ht, blood sedimen rate (BSR, serum vitamin A, immunoglobulin G (IgG to TB, chest X ray (CXR and food consumption were collected before and after (6 months intervention. Information on morbidity and socioeconomic also were recorded. To evaluate the degree of improvement, score on nutritional status, BSR and CXR were made. The results showed that after 6 month there were improvement in anthropometry status, morbidity rate, Hb, Ht, BSR, IgG and CXR for both groups. The treatment group was improved in 7.2% subjects meanwhile the control group was improved in 58% subjects. Analysis for scoring improvement showed that the treatment group had better improvement 2,4 times than the control group. The conclusions are that the high dose vitamin A has a positive effect on the recovery and immune status of underfive children suffering TB.

    During the development of their work, the aviator pilots are exposed at high levels of natural radiation of bottom caused mainly by the cosmic radiation of galactic origin and lot. For such reason, the Metropolitan Autonomous University (UAM) and the Union Association of Aviator Pilots (ASPA), subscribed an agreement with the purpose of to measure the doses of ionizing radiation received by the aviator pilots of diverse air companies that man different types of airships and to determine if these doses surpass the one limit of 0.11 mSv/h settled down by the IAEA for the public in general; and if therefore, these workers should be considered as personnel occupationally exposed. In this work the obtained results when measuring the absorbed dose received by Mexican civil aviator pilots during the development of their work, using thermoluminescent dosemeters of LiF:Mg,Cu,P + Ptfe of national production are presented. The obtained results during the years of 2001 and 2002 show that the monthly doses received by the pilots surpass the one it limits established for the public in general, for what they should be considered as personnel occupationally exposed.

    Hysterosalpingography (HSG) is the most frequently used diagnostic tool to evaluate the endometrial cavity and fallopian tube by using conventional x-ray or fluoroscopy. Determination of the patient radiation doses values from x-ray examinations provides useful guidance on where best to concentrate efforts on patient dose reduction in order to optimize the protection of the patients. The aims of this study were to measure the patients entrance surface air kerma doses (ESA K), effective doses and to compare practices between different hospitals in Sudan. ESA K were measured for patient using calibrated thermo luminance dosimeters (TLDs, Gr-200A). Effective doses were estimated using National Radiological Protection Board (NRPB) software. This study was conducted in five radiological departments: Two Teaching Hospitals (A and D), two private hospitals (B and C) and one University Hospital (E). The mean ESD was 20.1 mGy, 28.9 mGy, 13.6 mGy, 58.65 mGy, 35.7, 22.4 and 19.6 mGy for hospitals A,B,C,D, and E), respectively. The mean effective dose was 2.4 mSv, 3.5 mSv, 1.6 mSv, 7.1 mSv and 4.3 mSv in the same order. The study showed wide variations in the ESDs with three of the hospitals having values above the internationally reported values. Number of x-ray images, fluoroscopy time, operator skills x-ray machine type and clinical complexity of the procedures were shown to be major contributors to the variations reported. Results demonstrated the need for standardization of technique throughout the hospital. The results also suggest that there is a need to optimize the procedures. Local DRLs were proposed for the entire procedures. (author)

    Full text: The purpose of the study was to determine the values of the image quality indicators and their relationship with the dose in mammography of screen-film that they allowed the detection of a bigger number of objects in the images obtained with the mannequin (phantom) authorized of the ACR/FDA. The study was carried out in four mammography services in a period of 12 months. The indicators of the image quality are the half optic density (DOM), contrast (differences of densities), the number of observed objects in the images and the dose for image. The minimum acceptable values by the ACR/FDA are a half optical density of 1.4, contrast of 0.4 and the one numbers minimum of objects observed in the image of the mannequin of mammography of 10 (4 fibers, 3 groups of calcifications and 3 masses), with a maximum dose by image of 3 mGy. The found results are half optical density of 1.9, contrast of 0.56 and the average number of objects observed in the images of 12, with a dose in the interval of 1.6 mGy to 2.4 mGy. The doses were measured by thermoluminescent dosimetry and ionization chamber. Once carried out the analysis of the tendencies of the indicators of image quality and their distributions is found that for a p < 0.05, the bigger number of objects observed in the images is in the interval from 1.8 to 1.9 of DOM. When comparing both mammography system, the system screen-film has a lower variability in the distribution of objects associated to a DOM. (Author)

    A survey program aiming at studying the natural radioactivity in the Province of Holguin is a part of the national program carried out for 3 years. Radiological measurements carried out with a portable ionization chamber RSS-111 and RSS-112 at the sampled sites revealed an average outdoor absorbed dose rate of 43.5 nGy.h{sup -1} due to cosmic rays and terrestrial gamma radiation. Ratio of indoor to outdoor absorbed dose rates in air was 1.6. The average value of absorbed dose rate in air for the ionizing component of cosmic rays was 31.9 nGy.h{sup -1} at sea level. Because of the 82% of the Holguin population lives at altitudes close to sea level (10-200 m), the absorbed dose rate in outdoor air from ionizing component of cosmic rays was estimated to be 33.8 nGy.h{sup -1}. An annual average effective dose equivalent of 340 {mu}Sv was estimated for Holguin population due to the ionizing component of cosmic and gamma terrestrial radiation. This value is lower the 510 {mu}Sv.year{sup -1} estimated for the Camaguey population and lower than the 760 {mu}Sv.year{sup -1} estimated as a world average by UNSCEAR (1993). (author)

    in recent years the number of studies of computed tomography has been increased, as well as the technology and methodology of these, while the radiological protection to the patient has not advanced to the same step. The IAEA has implemented the Patients Radiation Protection projects, where one of the areas of more interest is the computed tomography. The present work is a brief summary of the actions to realize for the doses optimization imparted to the patients, obtaining an appropriate diagnostic quality in the images at the same time; as it was presented in the course of the project C-RLA/9/067-001. The results that were obtained between Image Quality and Dose by Radiation that is imparted to the patient are shown, as well s the exposition factors that influence in these, according to the project C-RLA/9/067-001. The main actions for the dose optimization are using tension optimized protocols (kV), of load (m As), of collimation/cut thickness, of inclination of the gantry, of the pitch/displacement by rotation, of the reconstruction algorithm (kernel), according to the diagnostic objective to reach and to the patient physical characteristics (like weight and age), as well as to use protections to shield the sensitive organs (mainly those that do not have clinical interest for the procedure). Conclusion: To establish or to begin to implement, insofar as possible, the IAEA recommendations, relating to the clinical practice of the hospitals in Mexico and to the available equipment s type.

    The X-ray equipment for diagnosis comes in different sizes and shapes depending on the scan type to perform. The X-ray spectrum is the energy distribution of the beam photons and consists of a continuous spectrum of photons braking and discrete spectrum due to the characteristic photons. The knowledge of the X-rays spectrum is important to understand like they affect the voltage changes (k Vp), current (m A), time (s) and the type of filter in the interaction mechanisms between X-rays and patient's body, the image receptor or other material that gets in the beam. Across the spectrum can be estimated the absorbed dose in any point of the patient, the quality of the image and the scattered radiation (which is related to the dose received by the equipment operator). The Monte Carlo method was used by MCNP5 code to calculate the spectrum of X-rays that occurs when a monoenergetic electron beam of 250 keV interact with targets of Mo, Rh and W. The spectra were calculated with and without filter, and the values of ambient dose equivalent were estimated, as well as the air kerma. (Author)

    In this study, we set out to evaluate the costs and effectiveness of the 2 most used therapies in our region, ATD or RAI. 23 patients, 6 men and 16 women, with a mean age of 35.4 years, treated with ATD, and 35 patients, 5 men and 30 women, mean age of 39.4 years, treated with RAI, were studied. After 2 years receiving ATD, 21 patients achieved euthyroidism and 2 remained hyperthyroid. In the RAI group, 21 patients presented hypothyroidism and 13 became euthyroid. To calculate the costs of each therapy, we analyzed the number of visits during this period, the laboratory data and the drugs needed, such as tiamazol and/or thyroxine. The group treated only with ATD needed a higher number of visits and laboratory measurements, with the mean total cost of R$ 1,345.81, while the RAI group spent a mean amount of R$ 622.94. Therefore, the costs of the RAI treatment were 53.5% lower than clinical therapy with ATD. The present study demonstrates that RAI treatment has a lower cost than ATD, being very effective in controlling the hyperthyroidism of Graves' disease. (author)

    Full Text Available INTRODUCTION: Information about HIV phenotypes of resistant to available ART and the influence of different risk factors on virological failures (VF in Costa Rican HIV positive patients prior or during HAART is unknown. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Eighty nine samples, 72 VF and 17 basal (before treatment were analyzed by examining resistant mutants in reverse transcriptase (RT and protease (PT regions using Trugene or LIPA genotyping kits. Sixty eight control patients were selected and relevant information was collected in a questionnaire. RESULTS: Poor adherence, presence of resistant mutations and number of treatment's changes were the only significant factors found (p = 0.006, 0.04 and 0.01 respectively. From 66 sequenced samples, 78%, 50% and 50% showed resistance to NRTI (nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors, NNRT (non-nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors and PI (protease inhibitors, respectively. The most frequent mutations were M41L, M184V, and T215FY in RT and L62PI, L10FIRV and M36I in PT. DISCUSSION: The most important factor related to treatment response in this study was adherence to treatment. Mutations in RT were related to the treatment failure while the ones found in PT were secondary mutations which have been previously described to influence the selection of primary resistance mutations in these regions. The study reveals the urgency to detect resistant mutations in VF to be considered by physicians for selection of treatment schedule, to analyze basal HIV patients for monitoring of the spread of resistant mutations and the importance to reinforce the adherence in the patients for overall treatment outcome.En Costa Rica no se tiene información a cerca de genotipos de resistencia para los tratamientos anti-retrovirales disponibles y la influencia de diferentes factores de riego en la falla virológica (FV de pacientes VIH positivos previo o durante su tratamiento. Ochenta y nueve muestras, 72 FV y 17 basales, fueron analizadas con Trugene o LIPA para la detección de mutantes de resistencia en la transcriptasa reversa (TR y en la proteasa (PT del VIH. Se seleccionaron sesenta y ocho controles y se recolectó información relevante en un cuestionario. La mala adherencia, la presencia de mutaciones y el número de cambios de tratamiento fueron los únicos factores con significancia encontrados. (p = 0.03, 0.04 and 0.04 respectively. De 66 muestras secuenciadas, 78%, 50% y 50% mostraron resistencia a los inhibidores análogos y no análogos de nucleótidos para la TR y la PT respectivamente. La mutaciones más frecuentes fueron M41L, M184V, y T215FY en la TR y L62PI, L10FIRV y M36I en la PT. La adherencia fue el factor más importante relacionado con la respuesta al tratamiento. Las mutaciones encontradas en la TR estaban relacionadas al tratamiento mientras que las de la PT fueron mutaciones secundarias que propician la aparición de las mutaciones asociadas a resistencia en esa región. Este estudio revela la necesidad de detectar mutantes de resistencia en pacientes con FV y de estudiar las muestras basales. Además la importancia de reforzar la adherencia en los pacientes para una mejor respuesta al tratamiento.

    Secondary hyperparathyroidism unresponsive to medical treatment is a common complication in patients with chronic renal failure and prolonged dialysis therapy, which requires surgery of the parathyroid glands, with the risks and costs of surgery. Objective: To evaluate the therapeutic effectiveness and safety of ablation of parathyroid adenomas by percutaneous ethanol injection under ultrasound guidance. Method: After approval by the institutional medical ethics committee, informed written consent was obtained in 15 patients who met the inclusion criteria. Sonographically guided ethanol was injected consecutively into adenomas, with an interval of time less than six months. Results: Size, Doppler vascularity of adenomas, and the levels of parathyroid hormone, calcium and phosphorus were measured before and after ablation as criteria for treatment response in 15 patients. Of all patients, six (40%) had no therapeutic response. Therapeutic response was observed in nine patients (60%). In the latter group, five patients (33.3%) had successful response and symptomatic improvement, in two patients (13.3%), therapeutic response was suboptimal, and in two patients (13.3%), the response was unsatisfactory. The procedure was safe. Local pain, transient dysphonia and cough were considered minor complications and were the most common, with resolution in all cases. There were no major complications. Conclusion: Ablation of parathyroid adenomas with percutaneous ethanol injection and ultrasound guidance, in uremic patients with secondary hyperparathyroidism unresponsive to medical treatment is an effective and safe therapy. Studies involving more patients and longer follow up are needed in order to stablish more conclusive results

    The use of nuclear techniques, for diagnosis or treatment, generates stress in the patient and its relatives. During the pregnancy some sufferings related with the thyroid gland can be presented. If the patient is pregnant, OEP or NOEP, the stress comes from the fear to that the product can it turns affected. The dose is calculated that the Iodine 131, captured by the thyroid of a woman with three months of pregnancy, it deposits in the brain, stomach, heart, kidneys, liver, lungs, ovaries, pancreas, thymus, spleen and in the uterus. The thymus is the organ that receives the biggest dose. (Author)

    The use of specialized codes to estimate the radiation dose projection to an emergency postulated event at a nuclear power plant requires that certain plant data be available according to the event being simulated. The calculation of the possible radiological release is the critical activity to carry out the emergency actions. However, not all of the plant data required are obtained directly from the plant but need to be calculated. In this paper we present a computational tool that calculates the plant data required to use the radiological dose estimation codes. The tool provides the required information when there is a gas emergency venting event in the primary containment atmosphere, whether well or dry well and also calculates the time in which the spent fuel pool would be discovered in the event of a leak of water on some of the walls or floor of the pool. The tool developed has mathematical models for the processes involved such as: compressible flow in pipes considering area change and for constant area, taking into account the effects of friction and for the case of the spent fuel pool hydraulic models to calculate the time in which a container is emptied. The models implemented in the tool are validated with data from the literature for simulated cases. The results with the tool are very similar to those of reference. This tool will also be very supportive so that in postulated emergency cases can use the radiological dose estimation codes to adequately and efficiently determine the actions to be taken in a way that affects as little as possible.

    A study was carried out in order to propose restriction levels for occupational exposures in nuclear medicine and teletherapy. The initial data were the annual doses of occupational exposed workers reported by external dosimetry of 23 institutions since 1990 to 1999, which were analyzed by statistical processing to obtain the variation ranges of this magnitude. Dose values corresponding to the 75-percentile were then considered in this study. Simultaneously, a model of the exposure scenarios was used for the estimation of the annual effective doses, this estimation was supported with measurements of dose rates carried out in the institutions. The restriction levels were obtained by multiplying the sum of the annual doses (normal and potential) by a reserve coefficient defined in the present work. The determined restriction levels are in the range of those obtained by other similar studies. (author)

    Full text: The dose equivalent that the population of the Chihuahua city receives due to the radon in air that joined to values of uranium, thorium and potassium due to the floor and radon in water was determined, they give values very above the international and national norms. The state of Chihuahua contains near 56 locations distributed by the whole state. The city of Chihuahua, capital of the state, is surrounded of rocks with great content of uranium, for what their floor also contains to the {sup 226} Ra that generates to the {sup 222} Rn. The construction of the housings of the city of Chihuahua is mainly of brick, block and adobe; the material to elaborate them is take from the rocks and floor of the surroundings, this makes that the radon is presented in a great quantity of houses of this city. As the floor and water they also contain those natural radionuclides, the total dose equivalent that the inhabitants receive is bigger to other cities of the country. Diverse international organizations dedicated to the radioactivity, indicate that the level of the {sup 222} Rn should not surpass the 148 Bq/m{sup 3}, since this gas produces lung cancer. The state of Chihuahua has an index of deaths on the average by lung cancer of double the national average, the capital of the state also has a high index. The radon concentration in a house depends on the construction material with which was made, as well as of the existent climatic conditions. During the day, this concentration depends mainly on the interior temperature, so during the night and dawn increases the radon concentration. The radon is the biggest source of radioactive dose received by the human being and it can generate a problem of public health if the concentration is high during enough time, for what the city of Chihuahua has the geologic and climatic characteristics to have it. This study was carried out in 50 house-room of the city of Chihuahua. Built houses with brick, block and adobe were selected. The quantification of the radon was made every 10 minutes during three continuous days, with the AlphaGUARD Pro2000 equipment that also measures atmospheric parameters. The obtained data were analyzed with the Genitron software and was analyzed the variation of the radon concentration with the atmospheric parameters and a hours in that the person is in the room. Finally they were carried out the dosimetry calculations due to the radon in air, adding it with the dose received by floor and water due to the natural radionuclides. As it was expected, the city of Chihuahua when being on an uranifer floor and the materials of construction of housings are elaborated starting from this floor, high concentrations were presented of {sup 222}Rn. The third part of the houses had a bigger average to the 148 Bq/m{sup 3} in air, with values average for the whole day of up to 276 Bq/m{sup 3}, as well as maxima values near to 900 Bq/m{sup 3}. When making the calculation of the concentration for the night and dawn that it is when the one inhabitant remains in the room and that to avoid the cold he closes doors and windows, the radon concentration ascended until values of 305 Bq/m{sup 3}. The calculation of the dosimetry was in high values for the radon of until 3.2 mSv/year that adding to the floor values (0.63 mSv/year) and water (0.016 mSv/year) it gives a value of 3.85 mSv/year, considering these values very superior to those registered in other cities of the country reported in the bibliography or by the CNSNS.

    The medical exposures have a significant contribution to the received doses by the population. As they generally contribute to the patient's direct benefit during a lot of time has been paid smaller attention that to other exposure forms, in spite of existing potentialities of reducing dose to the patients as consequence of these applications. In such sense in the last years the scientific community and international organizations have defined requirements to contribute to that the doses to the patients are the minimum ones necessary to achieve its diagnostic objective. The work exposes the results obtained in the evaluation of the image quality and dose in studies of radiology of thorax posteroanterior and of lumbosacral column anteroposterior and lateral, carried out in 2 university hospitals of La Havana, as well as the contribution of this investigation to the establishment of guidance levels in our country.

    Computed tomography is a diagnostic imaging method that deposits higher doses than other radio diagnosis methods. The knowledge of the spectrum of X-rays is important, since is in direct function with the dose absorbed by the patient. In this work we estimated the spectrum of X-rays, produced during the interaction of monoenergetic electrons of 130 KeV with Tungsten white, in order to determine their energetic characteristics at 50 cm from the focal point. The study was done using Monte Carlo methods with the code MCNP5 where the X-ray tube of a Siemens SOMATOM Perspective tomograph of the General Regional Hospital of Leon, Mexico was modeled. In the calculations, 3 x 10{sup 8} stories were used and a relative uncertainty of less than 0.1% was obtained. Also, a neck manikin with thyroid, thorax and head that included the eye, the table and gantry with 70 cm opening of the tomography was modeled. The X-ray spectrum calculated with a cut thickness of 10 mm limited by Pb collimators was used as the source term. The radiological service routine scanning protocol was used for chest computed tomography; the step-by-step or instant trigger method was simulated by moving the manikin coordinates for each cut and 360 degree continuous rotation movement. 36 positions of the X-ray tube were used in steps of 10 degrees. The radiation dispersed in the thorax deposits a dose of 2.063 mGy in crystalline and 252 mGy in thyroid. (Author)

    The use of an additional dosimeter at the level of the neck above the lead apron we can provide an indication of the dose in the head (the Crystal dose). In addition, it is possible to combine the two readings of the dosimeter to provide an improved estimate of the effective dose. In the hemodynamics service of our Hospital we have maintained a worker for 3 years with the double dosimetry read monthly. With the readings from these dosimeters will do following algorithms, several estimates of the effective dose to see if, with working conditions that occur in this service, it would be necessary to extend this practice to the rest of the workers to get a better estimation of effective dose.

The children (more radiosensitive that the adults) they present difficulties own to establish clinical approaches of quality due to their variations anthropomorphic (wide age range) and to specific illnesses. Also, those studies guided by fluoroscopy are of difficult standardization by the numerous ones pathologies (with anatomic-physiologic variations). It was determined the Kerma Area Product (P{sub K,A} ) in 25 subjected patients to cystourethrographies carried out by the same radiologist doctor. Its were registered anthropometric data, technical parameters, irradiated area, number radiographs, P{sub K,A} , pathologies. The complications (collaboration, delays in urinating), the radiological protocols and the learning curve of the radiologist were analyzed. When knowing the 'in situ' dose, the radiologist could relate it with those variables that determine it, optimizing immediately it practice. The hope wide range of obtained P{sub K,A} (0.17 - 1.85) Gy.cm{sup 2} deepened the analysis. The measurement of P{sub K,A} (non mandatory in all Latin America) it constitutes an incomparable educational tool in RP, should be used, at least, in reference hospitals. (Author)

    The energy can come from fossil renewable sources (solar (natural gas, oil), wind, hydro, tidal, geothermal, biomass, bio energy and nuclear. Nuclear power can be obtained by fission reactions and fusion (still under investigation) atomic nuclei. Fission, is a partition of a very heavy nucleus (Uranium 235, for example) into two lighter nuclei. Much of the world's electric power is generated from the energy released by fission processes. In a nuclear power reactor, light water as the BWR, there are many important elements that allow safe driving operation, one of them are the elements or control systems, the burnable poison or neutron absorber inherently allow control power reactor. The control rods, which consist mostly of stainless steel and absorbing elements (such as boron carbide, hafnium, cadmium, among others) of thermal neutrons is able to initiate, regulate or stop the reactor power. These, due to the use of depleted burned or absorbing material and therefore reach their lifespan, which can be 15 years or have other values depending on the manufacturer. Control rods worn should be removed, stored or confined in expressly places. Precisely at this stage arises the importance of knowing their radiological condition to manipulate safely and without incident to the people health responsible for conducting these proceedings state arises. This thesis consists in the estimation of the dose rate in spent control rod made of boron carbide, from a typical BWR reactor. It will be estimated by direct radiation measurements with measurement equipment for radiotherapy ionization chamber, in six spent control rods, which were taken at different reactor operating cycles and are in a spent fuel pool. Using bracket electromechanical and electronic equipment for positioning and lifting equipment for radiation measurement around the control rod in the axial and radial arrangement for proper scanning. Finally will be presented a graphic corresponding to the dose distribution around said control rods. (Author)

    The determination of value of irradiation dose presents difficulties when targets are irradiated located in regions where electronic equilibrium of charged particle is not reached, as in the case of irradiation -in vitro- of cell lines monolayer-cultured, in culture dishes or flasks covered with culture medium. The present study aimed to implement a methodology for dose verification in irradiation of cells in culture media by optically stimulated luminescence dosimetry (OSLD). For the determination of the absorbed dose in terms of cell proliferation OSL dosimeters of aluminum oxide doped with carbon (Al{sub 2}O{sub 3}:C) were used, which were calibrated to the irradiation conditions of culture medium and at doses that ranged from 0.1 to 15 Gy obtained with a linear accelerator of 6 MV photons. Intercomparison measurements were performed with an ionization chamber of 6 cm{sup 3}. Different geometries were evaluated by varying the thicknesses of solid water, air and cell culture medium. The results showed deviations below 2.2% when compared with the obtained doses of OSLDs and planning system used. Also deviations were observed below 3.4% by eccentric points of the irradiation plane, finding homogeneous dose distribution. Uncertainty in the readings was less than 2%. The proposed methodology contributes a contribution in the dose verification in this type of irradiations, eliminating from the calculation uncertainties, potential errors in settling irradiation or possible equipment failure with which is radiating. It also provides certainty about the survival curves to be plotted with the experimental data. (Author)

    The expression kinetics of the adaptive response (RA) in mouse leukocytes in vivo and the minimum dose of gamma radiation that induces it was determined. The mice were exposed 0.005 or 0.02 Gy of {sup 137} Cs like adaptation and 1h later to the challenge dose (1.0 Gy), another group was only exposed at 1.0 Gy and the damage is evaluated in the DNA with the rehearsal it makes. The treatment with 0. 005 Gy didn't induce RA and 0. 02 Gy causes a similar effect to the one obtained with 0.01 Gy. The RA was show from an interval of 0.5 h being obtained the maximum expression with 5.0 h. The threshold dose to induce the RA is 0.01 Gy and in 5.0 h the biggest quantity in molecules is presented presumably that are related with the protection of the DNA. (Author) =.

  3. Characterization of an absorbed dose standard in water through ionometric methods; Caracterizacion de un patron de dosis absorbida en agua mediante metodos ionometricos

    In this work the unit of absorbed dose at the Secondary Standard Dosimetry Laboratory (SSDL) of Mexico, is characterized by means of the development of a primary standard of absorbed dose to water, D{sub agua}. The main purpose is to diminish the uncertainty in the service of dosimetric calibration of ionization chambers (employed in radiotherapy of extemal beams) that offers this laboratory. This thesis is composed of seven chapters: In Chapter 1 the position and justification of the problem is described, as well as the general and specific objectives. In Chapter 2, a presentation of the main quantities and units used in dosimetry is made, in accordance with the recommendations of the International Commission on Radiation Units and Measurements (ICRU) that establish the necessity to have a coherent system with the international system of units and dosimetric quantities. The concepts of equilibrium and transient equilibrium of charged particles (TCPE) are also presented, which are used later in the quantitative determination of D{sub agua}. Finally, since the proposed standard of D{sub agua} is of ionometric type, an explanation of the Bragg-Gray and Spencer-Attix cavity theories is made. These theories are the foundation of this type of standards. On the other hand, to guarantee the complete validity of the conditions demanded by these theories it is necessary to introduce correction factors. These factors are determined in Chapters 5 and 6. Since for the calculation of the correction factors Monte Carlo (MC) method is used in an important way, in Chapter 3 the fundamental concepts of this method are presented; in particular the principles of the code MCNP4C [Briesmeister 2000] are detailed, making emphasis on the basis of electron transport and variance reduction techniques used in this thesis. Because a phenomenological approach is carried out in the development of the standard of D{sub agua}, in Chapter 4 the characteristics of the Picker C/9 unit, the ionization chamber type CC01, series 131, built by Osterreichisches Forschungszentrum Seibersdorf, and the experimental conditions are shown. The characteristics of the complementary instrumentation employed in the experimental part of the work, are also presented. In Chapter 5, two ionometric methods for the calculation of the correction factors are presented: that of the Bureau International des Poids et Mesures (BIPM) and that of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA). In the BIPM method emphasis is made in the MC simulation of the spectral fluence of the photons that emits the unit (using a realistic geometry and an equivalent one) as well as its validation by means of the air-kerma output factors and the percent depth doses in water, with the aid of the condition of TCPE that apply to the CC01-131 chamber. In particular, it is presented how the factor k{sub cav} is determined, employing MC simulation of two positions of the chamber (with the chamber axis parallel or perpendicular to the beam axis), and by means of a semi-analytic approach that uses the energy dissipation functions of Spencer for the parallel position. Finally the factor k{sub p} is determined for both orientations. In the case of the IAEA method, the expressions of the correction factors in the protocols TRS-277 and TRS-398 are shown. Chapter 6 presents results and discussion, and Chapter 7 presents conclusions and recommendations. In Chapter 6, the protocol of the BIPM/ISO/TAG [ISO 1992] for the calculation of the uncertainties is detailed, later the results and its discussion is made. The main conclusion obtained of these results is that the value of the D{sub agua} and its U for the BIPM method is bigger than that for the IAEA method. This conclusion has at least three meanings: First: The correction factors calculated using the BIPM method are overestimated, regarding the IAEA method. Second: The possible overestimation is consistent with the order of uncertainty with which are calculated, that is with the infrastructure that at the moment the SSDL-Mexico possesses to carry out the unit of absorbed dose to water (instrumentation, traceability of the electrometers, barometers, thermometers, calculation algorithms, time of machine, etc). Third: In this work it was shown the necessity to solve, if it exists, the ambiguity [Alvarez et al. 2002] of the models of the IAEA and the BIPM methods, when applying them to the design of the CC01-131 chamber. It was determined that, within the order of uncertainty with which the correction factors and the D{sub agua} were obtained, none of the two models presents the problem of ambiguity. (Author)

    Using Monte Carlo methods, with the code MCNP5, a gynecological mannequin and a vaginal cylinder were modeled. The spatial distribution of absorbed dose rate in uterine cervical cancer (UCCA) treatments was determined under the modality of manual brachytherapy of low dose rate (B-LDR). The design of the model included the gynecological liquid water mannequin, a vaginal cylinder applicator of Lucite (PMMA) with hemisphere termination. The applicator was formed by a vaginal cylinder 10.3 cm long and 2 cm in diameter. This cylinder was mounted on a stainless steel tube 15.2 cm long by 0.6 cm in diameter. A linear array of four radioactive sources of Cesium 137 was inserted into the tube. 13 water cells of 0.5 cm in diameter were modeled around the vaginal cylinder and the absorbed dose was calculated in these. The distribution of the fluence of gamma photons in the mesh was calculated. It was found that the distribution of the absorbed dose is symmetric for cells located in the upper and lower part of the vaginal cylinder. The values of the absorbed dose rate were estimated for the date of manufacture of the sources. This result allows the use of the law of radioactive decay to determine the dose rate at any date of a gynecological treatment of B-LDR. (Author)

    The systems utilization of independent dose calculation in three dimensional-Conformal Radiation Therapy (3D-Crt) treatments allows a direct verification of the treatments times. The utilization of these systems allows diminishing the probability of errors occurrence generated by the treatment planning system (Tps), allowing a detailed analysis of the dose to delivering and review of the normalization point (Np) or prescription. The independent dose calculation is realized across the knowledge of dosimetric parameters of the treatment machine and particular characteristics of every individual field. The aim of this work is develops a calculation system of punctual doses for isocentric fields conformed with multi-leaf collimation systems (MLC), where the dose calculation is in conformity with the suggested ones by ICRU Report No. 42, 1987. Calculation software was realized in C ++ under a free platform of programming (Code::Blocks). The system uses files in format Rtp, exported from the Tps to systems of record and verification (Lantis). This file contains detailed information of the dose, Um, position of the MLC sheets and collimators for every field of treatment. The size of equivalent field is obtained from the positions of every sheet; the effective depth of calculation can be introduced from the dosimetric report of the Tps or automatically from the DFS of the field. The 3D coordinates of the isocenter and the Np for the treatment plan must be introduced manually. From this information the system looks the dosimetric parameters and calculates the Um. The calculations were realized in two accelerators a NOVALIS Tx (Varian) with 120 sheets of high definition (hd-MLC) and a PRIMUS Optifocus (Siemens) with 82 sheets. 705 patients were analyzed for a total of 1082, in plans made for both equipment s, the average uncertainty with regard to the calculation of the Tps is-0.43% ± 2.42% in a range between [-7.90 %, 7.50 %]. The major uncertainty was in Np near of the MLC. The software checks the dose in any Np, helps to detect mistakes in the planning. Therefore, concludes that the calculation point should not be in semidarkness zones (near the MLC), because it is what causes the most uncertainty in the independent calculation. (author)

    Seeking to improve the information that gives us an image of mammography the manufacturers have implemented tomosynthesis. With this method of acquisition and reconstruction of image we went from having a 2D to a 3D image image, in such a way that it reduces or eliminates the effect of overlap of tissues. The estimate of the dose, which is always a fundamental parameter in the control of quality of radiology equipment, is more in the case of mammography by the radiosensitivity of this body and the frequency of their use. The objective of this work is the determination of the mean in a team glandular dose of with tomosynthesis mammography. (Author)

    In treatments with radiations for gynecologic tumors is necessary to evaluate the quality of the results obtained by different calculation methods for the dose rates on the points of clinical interest (A, rectal, vesicle). The present work compares the results obtained by two methods. The Manual Calibration Method (MCM) tri dimensional (Vianello E., et.al. 1998), using orthogonal radiographs for each patient in treatment, and the Theraplan/T P-11 planning system (Thratonics International Limited 1990) this last one verified experimentally (Vianello et.al. 1996). The results show that MCM can be used in the physical-clinical practice with a percentile difference comparable at the computerized programs. (Author)

    On this work the results of the dosimetric measurements are presented around an ovoid of 2 cm diameter. The measurements were carried out using a water mannequin, an ovoid, a radiation gamma source of {sup 192}Ir and thermoluminescent dosemeters. The dosimetry was realized in the direction of the rectum and bladder. To know the effect of the shielding of the devices type Manchester in the dose, the thermoluminescent dosemeters were irradiated to a radiation gamma source of {sup 192}Ir contained in the Gamma med Plus equipment. The planning was realized normalizing the calculation to 2.5 cm from the applicator center on the transverse plane (2.5, 0, 0). The results show that the dose distribution for an ovoid without shielding is more uniform in the transversal plane to the source axis. The results were compared with the calculated results by means of the planning system BrachyVision. While the absorbed dose distribution around an ovoid with shielding is completely anisotropic. This anisotropic is due to the shielding. (Author)

The irradiations were performed utilizing an X-ray beam generated by a Radiology Mexican Company: MRH-II E GMX 325-AF SBV-1 model, with Rotating Anode X-Ray Tube installed in the Hospital Juarez Norte de Mexico in Mexico City. Different thermoluminescent characteristics of dosimetric material were studied, such as, batch homogeneity, Tl glow curve, Tl response as a function of X-ray dose, reproducibility and fading. Materials were calibrated in terms of absorbed dose to the standard calibration distance and positioned in a generic Phantom was used. Dose verification and comparison with the measurements made with that obtained by TLD-100 were analyzed. Preliminary results indicate the dosimetric peak appears at 243, 236 and 277 ± 5 degrees C respectively, these peaks are in agreement with that reported in the literature. Tl glow curve as a function of X-ray dose showed a linearity in the range from 1.76 mGy up to 14.70 mGy for all materials. Fading for a period of one month at room temperature showed low fading LiF:Mg,Cu,P, medium and high for TLD-100 and CaSO{sub 4}: Dy. The results suggest that the three materials are suitable for measurements at low doses in radiodiagnostic, however, for its dosimetric characteristics are most effective for individual applications: personal dosimetry and monitors limb (LiF:Mg,Cu,P), clinical dosimetry and environmental (TLD-100 and CaSO{sub 4}: Dy).

    A computer program has been developed to facilitate the calculation of the absorbed dose in photon and electron beams from measurements with an ionization chamber in a phantom. The generalized Bragg-Gray theory, introduced in the latest recommendations of the Nordic Association of Clinical Physics (NACP), is used throughout the code, including more updated parameter values than those included in the NACP protocol. The calibration factor of the ionization chamber in units of absorbed dose in the air of the cavity can be derived for most of the chambers available today by using experimental data or fitted relations to Monte Carlo results.

    Knowledge of the attenuation and interface effects when irradiating metallic prosthesis is necessary for the radiotherapy treatment of patients with this kind of implants. This report studies the dose distribution of a 6 MV photon beam in the vicinity of a 1,5 cm diameter Co-Cr-Mo prosthesis. Measurements with Gafchromic EBT radiochromic films have been made. Two blocks of cut films have been placed next to the prosthesis, one in each side. Forty two films reaching a height of 1 cm have been piled up in each block. A spatial resolution equal to the thickness of one film (0,24 mm) is achieved. The results show 28% attenuation and the production of a 42% overdose at the entrance interface, 12% and 3% at 1 mm and 2 mm away from the prosthesis respectively. A 5 mm build-up region is originated in the exit interface, where the under dose is less than 10%. The knowledge of the transmission factor and the interface effects allows us to assess the dose calculated by the treatment planning system. (Author) 11 refs.

    The excessive use of polymers such as polyethylene (PET), polystyrene (Ps) and recently the polylactic acid (Pla) that take more than 20 years to degrade, have caused great pollution in the environment. In this study the effects of gamma radiation in the Pla to different doses were studied, in order to reduce the degradation time of this polymer. The changes in physico-chemical structure of Pla during radiation were studied by thermo-gravimetric/Mass analysis; differential scanning calorimetry; scanning electron microscopy; X-ray dispersive analysis; infrared spectroscopy; X-ray diffraction and mechanical tests of hardness, elasticity and deformation. With scanning electron microscopy, the morphology of the Pla surface unirradiated was observed, in which an apparently smooth surface was observed, after changes that had the Pla when irradiated also was observed, where the effects of radiation were observed in form of scratch, agglomeration and small fractures. By X-ray dispersive analysis was determined and verified the elemental chemical composition of the Pla; as expected the tests showed only carbon, oxygen and hydrogen. With thermo-gravimetric/Mass analysis the decomposition temperatures of Pla were determined, identifying that the degradation compounds are CO, CO{sub 2} and CH{sub 4}. With infrared spectrometry the major peaks of Pla were observed before and after being irradiated with increasing of radiation dose the intensity of the bands decreased. Also by X-ray diffraction was observed that the polymer is an amorphous material. The mechanical tests indicate that the values of each of the tests decrease significantly with increasing the radiation dose. (Author)

    Full Text Available ABSTRACT: Amorimiapubiflora (Malpighiaceae, which contains sodium monofluoroacetate (MFA is the main cause of "sudden death" in cattle in the Brazilian state of Mato Grosso. This research investigated the induction of resistance to the poisoning in sheep by the continuous administration of non-toxic doses of the plant and also the possibility to transfer this resistance to other sheep by the transfaunation of ruminal fluid. For this a group of four sheep (G1 received daily doses of 0.5g kg-1 for 20 days and after an interval of 15 days were challenged with three daily doses of 1g kg-1 for 3 days. Also the transfer of resistance to A. pubiflora poisoning was evaluated by transfaunation of rumen fluid (100ml for 10 days from G1 sheep to five sheep (G2, followed by challenge with the dose of 1g kg-1 for 3 days (G2D2 and after a three-day interval they received a single dose of 3g kg-1 (G2D3. The degree of resistance was evaluated by monitoring the onset of clinical signs, heart rate, and outcome of the poisoning compared with the control groups, which were challenged with three daily doses of 1g kg1 (G3 and with a single dose of 3g kg-1 (G4. Clinical parameters evaluated in Groups G1 and G2 were significantly less pronounced than those observed in G3 and G4 (control (P<0.05. Sheep in G4 (control died after receiving a single dose of 3g kg-1, while those in G2 (transfaunated survived. These findings demonstrated that consumption of non-toxic doses of A. pubiflora induced resistance in sheep and that this resistance can be transferred by transfaunation. New experiments are needed to determine the most efficient ways to induce resistance and to use this technique in the field to prevent the poisoning.

    The challenge of the Radiological Protection (RP) it is to implement Programs of Quality Guarantee without limiting them to the quality control. Radiologists and technicians should to familiarize with the dosimetry of patient, and the specialists in RP need to have clinical practice. The children (more radiosensitive that the adults) they present difficulties own to establish clinical approaches of quality due to their variations anthropomorphic (wide age range) and to specific illnesses. Also, those studies guided by fluoroscopy are of difficult standardization by the numerous ones pathologies (with anatomic-physiologic variations). It was determined the Kerma Area Product (P{sub K,A} ) in 25 subjected patients to cystourethrographies carried out by the same radiologist doctor. Its were registered anthropometric data, technical parameters, irradiated area, number radiographs, P{sub K,A} , pathologies. The complications (collaboration, delays in urinating), the radiological protocols and the learning curve of the radiologist were analyzed. When knowing the 'in situ' dose, the radiologist could relate it with those variables that determine it, optimizing immediately it practice. The hope wide range of obtained P{sub K,A} (0.17 - 1.85) Gy.cm{sup 2} deepened the analysis. The measurement of P{sub K,A} (non mandatory in all Latin America) it constitutes an incomparable educational tool in RP, should be used, at least, in reference hospitals. (Author)

    The aim of this work is to verify the existence of the adaptive response phenomenon induced by low doses of ionizing radiation in living cells. It is known that low doses of ionizing radiation, called conditioning doses, may induce resistance in exposed organisms to higher doses, called challenging doses, which are applied after a period of time. The involved mechanisms in this phenomenon, called Adaptive Response, are diverse and complex. Among them, the most important are the activation of DNA-repair enzymes and nuclear recombination process. As the 'target' sample, it was utilized a 'wild type' strain of Saccharomyces cerevisiae in aqueous suspension. Adaptive Response was verified in a wide range of challenging doses. Conditioning doses, inductors of radio-resistance, were (0.44{+-}0.03) Gy and the waiting time between them and challenging doses was 2 hours at room temperature.(author)

    Currently, the production of nuclear halos chromatin dispersion methods is a good procedure for nuclear analysis by in situ hybridization (Wiegant et al., 1992, Gerdes et al. 1994), to detect apoptosis, DNA fragmentation and cell death rates in cell cultures (Fernandez et al., 2005, Enciso et al. 2006). It is customary to display the nuclear halos by fluorescence microscopy using propidium iodide, ethidium bromide or DAPI (Gerdes et al., 1994, Sestili et al. 2006). Using this technique based on a modified protocol of fast halo assay [FHA],(Sestili et al. 2006), has developed a simplified method to quantify the cytogenetic damage induced by ionizing radiation (dispersion test chromatin in agarose thin smear), which allows visualization of halos after staining for light microscopy or fluorescence and correlating the ratio: total area occuped by the halo nucleus / nucleus (halo-core index [IHN] ) with radiation dose.

    Forming part of a research project entitled 'Emissions of Precious Metals', this study had the aim to describe dose-related responses that occur in growing rats following administration of platinum with the food. The oral intake of diets containing up to to 50 mg platinum/kg food had no detectable influence on the food consumption of the animals, nor were there any deviations from the normal growth curves that could be related to the addition of platinum. Comparisons with the control group pointed to a decline in erythrocytes from 5.88 {+-} 0.55 x 10{sup 6}/{mu}l to 5.11 {+-} 0.50 x 10{sup 6}/{mu}l following administration of 50 ppm PtCl{sub 4} over a period of four weeks. There were no other changes in hematological parameters that attained statistical significance. The treatment group receiving platinum amounts of 50 mg/kg with the diet showed a plasma creatinine value of 1.45 {+-} 0.19 {mu}g/dl, which significantly (p < 0.05) exceeded that of the control group, where creatinine levels remained at 0.70 {+-} 0.50 {mu}g/dl. This leads to the conclusion that the possibility of renal impairment after high oral doses of PtCl{sub 4} is not very remote. (orig./VT).

    Litiasis urinaria is appearing more frequently with approximately 12% of the population with a stone in the urinary system at any moment of their life. The stone produces severe colics causing pain in the transit through the ureter. This is probably one of the worst pains and experiences in human beings. The treatment by extracorporated lithotripsy consists of powdering or smashing into pieces the stones in the kidney and ureter. This has been done with the help of shock waves generated from a canon and which are focused on the stone. The machine used is aimed and the procedure is monitored by way of X rays. The high number of patients treated per year and the doses applied to the patients during the diagnosis, treatment and follow-up led to this study. 7 refs, 5 figs, 4 tabs.

    The present work describes an online patient dosimetry and an image quality audit system in digital radiology. the system allows auditing of different parameters depending on contents of DICOM (Digital Imaging and Communication in Medicine) header. For the patient dosimetry audit, current mean values of entrance surface dose (ESD) were compared with local and national reference values (RVs) for the specific examination type evaluated. Mean values exceeding the RV trigger an alarm signal and then an evaluation of the technical parameters, operational practice and image quality starts, using data available in the DICOM header to derive any abnormal settings or performance to obtain the image. the X-ray tube output for different kVp values is measured periodically, allowing for the automatic calculation of the ESD. The system also allows for image quality audit linking it with the dose imparted and other technical parameters if the alarm condition if produced. Results and advantages derived from this online quality control are discussed. (Author) 5 refs.

    The objective of this work is to estimate the maximum dose accumulated during one year in the crystalline lens of the pediatric interventional cardiologists that work in the Hospital Universitario La Paz. Optically Stimulated Luminescence Dosimeters (OSLDs) were used for to carry out this estimation, placed in the eyes of an anthropomorphic mannequin whose position in the room simulates the more habitual conditions of the clinical practice. Previously to the simulation, different tests to validate the used dosimetric system were realized, including those related with the stability, reproducibility and lector linearity, as well as the angular and energy dependence of the OSLDs. During the simulation the mannequin eyes were irradiated and were measured with OSLDs the rate of superficial equivalent dose in crystalline lens for the different qualities of beam habitually used, as much in fluoroscopy as in acquisition. With the obtained data during three years, corresponding to the fluoroscopy times and the acquisitions number of the interventional procedures carried out; as much therapeutic as diagnostic, and rate by measuring of obtained dose, has been considered the superficial equivalent dose and the equivalent dose at 3 mm deep accumulated in the crystalline lens of the pediatric interventional cardiologist with more work load of the Hospital, during the years 2011 and 2012. None of the obtained maximum values exceed the new dose annual limit in crystalline lens of 20 mSv, recommended by ICRP in April of 2011. (author)

    The interventional radiology involves considerable exposure levels for the occupationally exposed personnel (OEP). The doses can encompass a wide range of values in dependence of the function that develops the personnel and the complexity of each procedure. In organs like the crystalline lens and skin values can be reached that imply the appearance of deterministic effects if is not fulfilled the appropriate measures of radiological protection. This has been demonstrated through multiple studies, among those that the retrospective study of damages in the crystalline lens and dose has been one of those most commented, known as RELID. The objective of that study was to examine the opacity prevalence in the crystalline lens in workers linked to the interventional cardiology and to correlate it with the occupational exposition. The obtained results contributed to that the ICRP recommend a new limit value of equivalent dose for crystalline lens of 20 mSv in one year. With the objective of analyzing the operational implications, in the radiological surveillance programs that they could originate with the new recommendations was developed a pilot study to evaluate the dose in crystalline lens in the OEP linked to the interventional radiology in a Cuban hospital. For this, an anthropomorphic mannequin RANDO-ALDERSON was used on which thermoluminescent dosimeters were placed below and above of the leaded apron and in different positions at level of the crystalline lens: above, below and to the sides of the leaded lenses that the personnel uses routinely. The mannequin was located on the same positions that occupy the main specialist that execute the procedure, as well as of the nurse to assist him. The measurements were made simulating the more representative procedures about complexity, duration time and exposure rate. The used dosimeters were RADOS model for whole body composed of two thermoluminescent detectors Gr-200 (LiF: Mg, Cu, P) to evaluate personal equivalent dose Hp(10) and dosimeters for crystalline lens with three detectors of the same material to evaluate the personal equivalent dose Hp(3). The selected detectors were previously subjected to tests recommended by the standard IEC-61066 and segregated by their individual sensibility. For the reading dosimeters was used the automatic system TLD RADOS model of the Laboratorio de Dosimetria Externa del Centro de Proteccion e Higiene de las Radiaciones, calibrated in function of the magnitude to evaluate. This study allowed demonstrating that the application of the new established dose limit for crystalline lens can result in different implications from the operational view point in the radiological surveillance programs. Also it facilitated the diffusion of some recommendations regarding type of singular radiological surveillance and use frequency for the OEP during the interventional procedures. (author)

    With the purpose of promoting the use of the radiations for the plant breeding of pseudo cereals, it was determined a simple and economic method that allows the quick selection of radiation dose that induce in the vegetable organisms the changes wanted. For it it was work with quinua seeds (Chenopodium quinoa Willd.) an Andean pseudo cereal that, due to their nutritious and physiologic characteristics it is considered by the FAO like one of the foods of the future and for the NASA like an organism that is good to remove the carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and at the same time, to generate food, oxygen and water for the crew during the space missions of long duration and that it has already improved by means of the radiation application. The proposed method consists on the evaluation, of the embryonic structures (radicule, hypocotyl and cotyledons) in the irradiated seeds as well as of the development of root, primary shaft and true leaves in the plants. The changes in the growth, form, number and color of the structures as well as the time of appearance of each one, allow to predict the morphological changes and inclusive some physiologic ones that will have the mature organisms, so that in only three weeks it is possible to select the doses more appropriate.

    The determination of the dose-response curve is a crucial step to use the Micronucleus assay in Lymphocytes as a biological dosimeters. The most widely used fitting function is the linear-quadratic function. The coefficients are fitted by calibration data provided by irradiations of blood from healthy donors. In our case we performed the calibration curve corresponding to gamma radiation from Cesium-137 (660 keV). Doses ranged from 0 to 16 Gy. The fitting procedure used was the iteratively re weighted least square algorithm implemented in a Matlab routine. The results of the analysis of our data show that the dose-effect curve does not follow a linear-quadratic curve at high radiation doses, diminishing the quadratic parameters as dose increases. This can be interpreted as a micronucleus saturation effect beyond a certain dose level. We conclude that the MN assay with lymphocytes can be well characterized as a biological dosimeters up to a maximum dose of 4.5 Gy. (Author)

    The IAEA Report No. 115 recommends that each country or region can establish levels of absorbed doses for each radiographic technique employed in diagnostic. assuming the extended and expensive of this purpose, we have been to begin in a first step with the dentistry area, in order to estimate the dose levels received at crystalline and thyroid level in infants that go to an important public institution in our country to realize panoramic and cephalic radiographs. This work will serve to justify and impel a quality assurance program in Venezuela on the dentistry area which includes aspects such as training for the medical lap referring the justification of the radiological practice, optimization of X-ray units to produce an adequate image quality that delivers to patient an absorbed dose as much lower as reasonably it can be reached without diagnostic detriment.

Se administraron dosis de vacuna o de placebo a la edad de 1, 3 y 5 meses. No se observaron diferencias significativas en la frecuencia de diarrea o vómito en los bebés de ninguno de los dos grupos después de administrar la dosis correspondiente. De 2 a 3% de los vacunados tuvieron fiebre baja los días tercero a quinto después de recibir la primera dosis, pero no después de las dosis segunda o tercera. Se observó una respuesta de anticuerpos del tipo IgA al rotavirus aislado de monos rhesus (RRV en 58% de los vacunados y en 33% de quienes recibieron placebo. La respuesta de anticuerpos neutralizantes a cada serotipo no pasó de 20% cuando se determinó con la prueba de reducción de focos de fluorescencia, pero fue superior a 40% al medirse con la prueba de neutralización a base de reducción de placas. Se presentaron 91 casos de diarrea causada por rotavirus entre los niños que recibieron las tres dosis (de vacuna o de placebo durante un seguimiento de 2 años, 36 de ellos en los niños vacunados. La eficacia general de la vacuna fue de 8% (P = 0,005 contra toda clase de diarrea y de 35% (P = 0,03 contra la diarrea causada por rotavirus. La protección durante el primer año de seguimiento, cuando predominó el rotavirus G del serotipo 1, fue de 57% (P = 0,008, pero se redujo a 12% en el segundo año. Se obtuvieron resultados similares al restringir el análisis a episodios en que el rotavirus fue el único agente patógeno identificado.

    efectivos contra los riesgos potenciales de infección. El propósito de este estudio fue evaluar la efectividad y seguridad del LeukoCIM® (CIMAB, La Habana. Se realizó un estudio retrospectivo, observacional con los datos de los pacientes incluidos en el ensayo clínico fase IV abierto, no aleatorizado y multicéntrico. Estos pacientes provenían del Hospital Gustavo Aldereguía Lima y se evaluaron durante un año. Se analizaron los datos demográficos, clínicos y de seguridad. Como profilaxis el fármaco fue administrado de 24-72 h después de la última dosis de quimioterapia y como tratamiento cuando la neutropenia había sido diagnosticada. En ambos casos la dosis única diaria fue de 300 µg por vía subcutánea. La administración del próximo ciclo de quimioterapia en tiempo resultó la variable principal de respuesta y la seguridad del producto se evaluó midiendo los eventos adversos. Se incluyeron 47 pacientes con 95 episodios neutropénicos. El 82,1 % de episodios recibió su próximo ciclo de quimioterapia en tiempo. Los eventos adversos más frecuentes fueron: dolor óseo y fiebre (11,22 % respectivamente, hiperuricemia (9,2 %, leucocitosis y neutrofilia (7,1 % e incremento de LDH (6, 1%. LeukoCIM® resultó efectivo, pues aceleró la recuperación del número de neutrófilos, disminuyó la incidencia de neutropenia febril y permitió administrar las dosis de quimioterapia en tiempo según el protocolo. También se consideró seguro en la serie estudiada, pues solo reportó eventos adversos conocidos.

    Intracavitary Brachytherapy is one of the most used methods for the treatment of the cervical-uterine cancer. This treatment consists in the insertion of low rate dose {sup 137}Cs sources into the patient. The most used system for the treatment dose planning is that of Manchester. This planning is based on sources, which are considered fixed during the treatment. However, the experience has shown that, during the treatment, the sources could be displaced from its initial position, changing the dose from that previously prescribed. For this reason, it is necessary to make measurements of the absorbed dose to the surrounding organs (mainly bladder and rectum). This paper presents the results of measuring the absorbed dose using home-made LiF: Mg, Cu, P + Ptfe thermoluminescent dosimeters (TLD). Measurements were carried out in-vivo during 20 minutes at the beginning and at the end of the treatments. Results showed that the absorbed dose to the critical organs vary significantly due to the movement of the patient during the treatment. (Author)

Fue el objetivo del trabajo el conocer los cambios que se producen en el tamaño del área tímica, con el uso de esteroides, en una paciente de 2 años de edad, que presentaba miastenia gravis juvenil, con una hiperplasia tímica. Esta glándula alcanzó un área máxima de 1 928 mm. Con el uso de la prednisona a 60 mg por semanas se produjo una timectomía medicamentosa, con la reducción del área tímica a 439 mm y remisión total de la sintomatología. Se realizaron las mediciones periódicamente durante un año de los cambios del área de este órgano. No se produjeron recaídas de la enfermedad de base. La ultrasonografía demostró ser un método útil, por ser rápido, barato y no invasiva y permite un ajuste adecuado de la dosis de esteroides que se administrará.Myasthenia gravis is a clinical agent of autoimmune origin, whose habitual therapy includes anticholinergic drugs, thymectomy, or therapy with steroids. The objective of this paper was to know the changes that occur in the size of the thymic area in a 2-year-old patient with juvenile myasthenia gravis and with thymic hyperplasia. This gland reached a maximum area of 1 928 mm and with the use of 60 mg of prednisone per week a medicamentosus thymectomy was performed with the reduction of the thymic area to 439 mm and total remission of the symptomatology. The changes of the area of this organ were periodically measured during a year. There were no relapses of the base disease. The ultrasonography proved to be a useful method, since it is fast, cheap and noninvasive and allows an adequate control of the steroids dose to be administered.

La dosis de referencia se calcula siempre de la misma manera, a 2 mm de la pared del tubo, suponiendo que la intensidad de dosis es del orden de 10 rad/min para una actividad de 1 mc/cm. Aplicaciones terapeuticas: La actividad radiobiologica de las agujas de itrio- 90 no esta bien estudiada aun. La dosis disminuye rapidamente a partir de 3 mm de la pared de la aguja, lo que dificulta la irradiacion homogenea de los tejidos tratados. En principio, las agujas se podrian colocar a 5 o 6 mm una de otra, pero esto requiere un dispositivo de implantacion muy dificil de manejar; un error de 1 o 2 mm podria producir excesivos puntos calientes o frios. Por tal motivo, en una primera etapa, los autores utilizaron las agujas en tumores angiomatosos benignos sin tratar de irradiar homogeneamente el tejido, sino solamente de crear zonas de esclerosis, concentricas a las agujas, separadas por zonas de tejido poco o nada irradiadas. De esta manera, esperan lograr en algunos angiomas tuberosos un efecto esclerogeno suficiente con la ventaja de que los enfermos reciben una dosis integral muy reducida. La ausencia de difusion en los tejidos sanos tiene particular interes para los angiomas situados cerca de tejidos radiosensibles (globo ocular, glandula mamaria) o proximos a las gonadas. Al parecer, los resultados obtenidos en los primeros casos tratados son satisfactorios. En una segunda etapa, los autores esperan poder utilizar estas agujas en tumores cutaneos malignos situados tambien en la vecindad de tejidos sanos radiosensibles (por ejemplo, cancer de los parpados) [Russian] V naotojashheee vremja v sotrudnichestve s jaderkym centrom Sakle tehnicheskij otdel vnutritkanevoj radioterapii instituta Gustava Russi izuchaet nekotorye vidy terapevticheskogo primenenija vnutritkanevoj betaterapii s pomoshh'ju ittrija-90

    The practice of Brachytherapy with Iridium-192 sources of low dose rate (0.4 - 0.8 Gy/h) is a technique used in the treatment of diverse illnesses. in this work the preparation, quality control and calibration are presented in terms of kerma in air of Iridium-192 using as target these recycled Iridium-Platinum wires. The targets were obtained as decayed sources of different radio therapeutical centers in the country and they were characterized by Scanning electron microscopy in order to determine their chemical composition. Subsequently it was developed an experimental design to establish the effect of neutron flux, geometrical array and irradiation time over the activity and percentage of the sources homogeneity. The homogeneity was determined by auto radiography and by Gamma spectroscopy. Once the optimal irradiation conditions were established, it is determined the apparent activity and kerma in air using a well type ionization chamber with traceability to a primary laboratory. Iridium-192 sources were obtained with an average homogeneity 96 %, apparent activity 282.129 {+-} 0.531 M Bq and kerma in air 0.03200 {+-} 0.00006 m Gy m/h A. (Author)

    A study was carried out to determine the concentration of {sup 222}Rn in samples of drinking water collected from different homes in the Zacatecas city, Mexico, whose main source of supply is groundwater. The {sup 222}Rn radioactive gas is a product of the decay series of {sup 238}U and is considered one of the main sources of natural radiation, since it contributes almost half of the radiation dose that a person will receive throughout his life. The {sup 222}Rn originates in the rocks of the aquifers and dissolves in the water, which is later integrated into the distribution network of the public supply that supplies the entire population. Exposure to ionizing radiation that {sup 222}Rn and its offspring emit can damage the DNA molecule, inducing the possible appearance of cancer. Has been demonstrated by various epidemiological studies carried out in uranium mines workers in different parts of the world, that this exposure increases the incidence of lung cancer, placing {sup 222}Rn and their offspring as the second main cause of this type of cancer, after smoking habit. Using the technique of solvent extraction of {sup 222}Rn in water and liquid scintillation spectrometry, water collected from 14 different households was sampled and analyzed. The average of the measured activity of {sup 222}Rn was 2.09 Bq/L and the annual effective dose per water intake attributable to that concentration of 6.07 mSv/a. The concentration of {sup 222}Rn in water and the annual effective dose are below 11 Bq/L and 50 mSv/a, such concentrations are the maximum limits established by the Unites States Environmental Protection Agency (US EPA) and the ICRP, respectively. The concentration of {sup 222}Rn that is transferred from the water to the air inside a house was also calculated and the radiation dose that this concentration causes by inhalation, being 0.209 Bq/m{sup 3} and 1,463 μ Sv a, respectively.

    The objective of this publication is to present a guideline for the dose assessment through a comprehensive introduction of knowledge on ionizing radiation, radiation protection during pregnancy and fetal dosimetry for physician and other professionals involved in nuclear medicine practices. It contains tables with recommended dose estimates at all stages of pregnancy for many radiopharmaceuticals. Compounds for which some information was available regarding placental crossover are shown in shaded rows. It includes the most common diagnostic and therapy practices in nuclear medicine considering the four radioactive isotopes selected: {sup 99m}Tc, {sup 131}I, {sup 201}Tl and {sup 67}Ga. There is a special case included, it is when conception occurs after the iodine has been administered. In almost every case, the diagnostic benefit to the mother outweighs the risk of any irradiation of the fetus. However, there is one situation in which severe fetal injury can be incurred from administering a radiopharmaceutical to the mother, and that is use of iodine-131 therapy for ablation of the thyroid in cases of hyperthyroidism or carcinoma. Radioactive iodine readily crosses the placenta and concentrates in the fetal thyroid, where, because of its small organ mass, high radiation doses are received. (author)

    This paper describes a heterogeneous subcritical nuclear reactor with molten salts based on thorium, with graphite moderator and a source of {sup 252}Cf, whose dose levels in the periphery allows its use in teaching and research activities. The design was done by the Monte Carlo method with the code MCNP5 where the geometry, dimensions and fuel was varied in order to obtain the best design. The result is a cubic reactor of 110 cm side with graphite moderator and reflector. In the central part they have 9 ducts that were placed in the direction of axis Y. The central duct contains the source of {sup 252}Cf, of 8 other ducts, are two irradiation ducts and the other six contain a molten salt ({sup 7}LiF - BeF{sub 2} - ThF{sub 4} - UF{sub 4}) as fuel. For design the k{sub eff}, neutron spectra and ambient dose equivalent was calculated. In the first instance the above calculation for a virgin fuel was called case 1, then a percentage of {sup 233}U was used and the percentage of Th was decreased and was called case 2. This with the purpose to compare two different fuels working inside the reactor. In the case 1 a value was obtained for the k{sub eff} of 0.13 and case 2 of 0.28, maintaining the subcriticality in both cases. In the dose levels the higher value is in case 2 in the axis Y with a value of 3.31 e-3 ±1.6% p Sv/Q this value is reported in for one. With this we can calculate the exposure time of personnel working in the reactor. (Author)

    Full text: Using the Monte Carlo method, by MCNP5 code, simulations were performed with different source terms and 2 geometric models of the head to obtain spectra in energy, flow and doses of photo-neutrons at different positions on the stretcher and in the radiotherapy room. The simplest model was a spherical shell of tungsten; the second was the complete model of a heterogeneous head of an accelerator Varian ix. In both models Tosi function was used as a source term. In addition, for the second model Sheikh-Bagheri distribution was used for photons and photo-neutrons were generated. Also in both models the radiotherapy room of Gurve group of the Teaching Medical Center La Trinidad was included, which is equipped with an accelerator Varian Clinic 2100. In this Center passive detectors PADC (Cr-39) were irradiated with neutron converters, with 18 MeV photons radiation. The measured neutron flow was compared with that obtained with Monte Carlo calculations. The Monte Carlo flows are similar to those measured at the isocenter. The simplest model underestimates the neutron flow compared with the calculated flows with the heterogeneous model of the head. (Author)

    In this work was used the robust design methodology of artificial neural networks to determine a good topology of net able to solve with efficiency the problems of neutrons spectrometry and dosimetry. For the design of the topology of optimized net 36 different net architectures based on an orthogonal arrangement with a configuration L{sub 9}(3{sup 4}), L{sub 4}(3{sup 2}) were trained. For the training of the neural networks, was used a computer code developed in the ambient of Mat lab programming, which automates the process and analysis of the information, reducing the time used in this activity considerably for the investigator. For the training of the propagation nets forward was utilized a neutrons spectrum compendium published by the International Atomic Energy Agency, where of the total 80% was used for the training and 20% for the test, it trained with an inverse propagation algorithm being the entrance data the count rates corresponding to the 7 spheres of the spectrometric system of Bonner spheres, as exit data, the neural network obtains the neutrons spectrum expressed in 60 energy groups and are calculated of simultaneous way 15 dosimetric quantities.

    Solid dosimeters of sucrose and microcrystalline cellulose (Avicel Ph-102) were prepared, following the same process, in order to compare their EPR response against that of the l-alanine dosimeters considered as reference. All lots of dosimeters were irradiated with gamma radiation in Gamma beam irradiator with 8 kGy/h of the Nuclear Sciences Institute of UNAM. Doses ranged from 1 to 10 kGy respectively. We found that both the response of sucrose as microcrystalline cellulose were linear; however, the response intensity was, on average, twenty times more for sucrose. Comparing this against the EPR response of l-alanine in the range of doses, it was found that the response to sucrose is a third part; and microcrystalline cellulose is a sixtieth, approximately. The results agree with those found in the literature for sucrose, leaving open the possibility of investigating other dosage ranges for cellulose. (Author)

    Full text: Mammography is a test used for early detection of breast cancer. The mean glandular dose (MGD) is dosimetric greatness accepted as indicative of carcinogenic risk induced by ionizing radiation in the breasts of women undergoing mammography exams. MGD value is estimated from the incident air kerma (k i), associated with conversion factors which depend on the half-value layer (HVL), the breast composition and thickness compressed breast. This study aims to evaluate the influence of the parameters used to determine the MGD using different measurement detectors. Measurements were performed on a Siemens Mammomat Model 300 Nova mammography equipment; this has the combinations Anode/Filter of Mo/Mo, Mo/Rh and W/Rh. Detectors used were the ionization chamber Model 10X6-6M manufactured by Radcal Co., two solid-state detectors, one Model AGMS-M manufactured by Radcal Co. and other Model Xi Mammo manufactured by UNFORS. The detectors measures were compared and the MGD value was estimated; differences between measurements and the reference values were higher in HVL and k i parameters. The results are displayed according to other published works. (Author)

    In this paper we present the study of the thyroid equivalent dose in 300 patients undergoing to digital orthopantomography for dental treatment purposes using optical stimulation dosimeters (OSL) as in-vivo dosimeters, in order to verify if this is within acceptable parameters to prevent stochastic risks and to evaluate the possible risks caused by the technique used for this type of study (66 kv, 5 m A, 14.1 s). Three OSL dosimeters were used per patient, which were placed by the physician on the skin above the thyroid gland (using anatomical references and palpation); the information of the patients was divided by neck size and sex, finding a slight increase in the equivalent dose for female and small size patient, this combination being the group that was submitted to a higher dose. The results obtained were compared with similar studies performed on anthropomorphic mannequins with TLD dosimeters obtaining lower results. The equivalent dose found even though is below the threshold stochastic damage must be motorized for radiological protection and registration purposes. (Author)

    The absorbed dose by the bladder, the rectum and the gland thyroid was measured during a treatment applied for prostate cancer by means of a Cobalt 60 unit. The dose was measured using thermoluminescent dosimeters of the type TLD 100, with the values of the absorbed the values of the effective dose were calculated and was determined the probability of the development of a secondary cancer. Because these measurements cannot be made -in vivo- a phantom or mannequin was built with water that represents the hip and part of the torso of the human body and to represent the neck was used polyethylene. The study was carried out in the Instituto Zacatecano del Tumor that has a -cobalt bomb- which is used to treat oncology patients, during the phantom irradiation a dose of 200 c Gy was applied of this dose the bladder received 96.7%, the rectum 100.8% and the gland thyroid 0.3%. The dose received by the rectum and the bladder is due to the therapeutic beam while the dose received by the thyroid is due to the dispersed radiation by the phantom. The probability that in these organs a new neoplasm is developed is of 0.033% for the bladder, 0.157% for the rectum and 7.8 x 10{sup -5}% for the thyroid case. (Author)

    The staff of a nuclear medicine department is subject to the risk of 131I intake as consequence of oversights in the radiation safety procedures, the occurrence of an accident, or malicious acts. The intake can be estimated by using a detection system based on NaI(Tl) or HpGe. This paper presents a methodological proposal for the use of a gammacamera for detection of occupational intakes of 131I in the Nuclear Medicine staff. We used a Siemens e.cam gamma camera (GC) as the radionuclide intake detection system. GC sensitivity and minimum detectable activity were determined to quantify activity retained in the thyroid gland. A whole-body anthropomorphic phantom REMCAL was also used to simulate and quantify the intake in the thyroid gland. To estimate the minimal uptake and the minimal committed effective dose E(50) that can be quantified with the gammacamera, the AIDE (Activity and Internal Dose Estimates) software was used. The gammacamera can detect 131I activity in thyroid, as low as 175 Bq without collimators, and 5948 Bq with high-energy collimators. The calculation of E(50) shows to be as low as 5% of the annual limit. This work has shown the utility of the gammacamera to detect intakes of 131I and to estimate the E(50). (Author).

    This work was supported, on the one hand, in a part of the project ORAMED which consisted of a design of a TLD dosimeter for measurements of Hp (3) in areas close to the lens, for interventional radiology physicians. On the other hand, Berhens work proposes using calibrated TLDs Hp (0.07) and Hp (10) to estimate Hp (3) crystal. This resulted in dosimeters calibrated using Hp (10) slab, and mount them on glasses, to estimate the dose to the lens of the technical staff of the Service PET / CT. The value obtained 29mSv/year of Lens Dose Equivalent exceeds the recommended limit. We also demonstrate that, under the current working conditions, the values of Hp (3) reported from whole body dosimeter does not represent faithfully the lens dose.

    The absorbed dose for equivalent soft tissue is determined,it is imparted by ophthalmologic applicators, ({sup 90} Sr/{sup 90} Y, 1850 MBq) using an extrapolation chamber of variable electrodes; when estimating the slope of the extrapolation curve using a simple lineal regression model is observed that the dose values are underestimated from 17.7 percent up to a 20.4 percent in relation to the estimate of this dose by means of a regression model polynomial two grade, at the same time are observed an improvement in the standard error for the quadratic model until in 50%. Finally the global uncertainty of the dose is presented, taking into account the reproducibility of the experimental arrangement. As conclusion it can infers that in experimental arrangements where the source is to contact with the extrapolation chamber, it was recommended to substitute the lineal regression model by the quadratic regression model, in the determination of the slope of the extrapolation curve, for more exact and accurate measurements of the absorbed dose.

    In this study, the average glandular doses (DG) delivered in breast tomosynthesis examinations were estimated over a sample of 150 patients using two different methods. In method 1, the conversion factors air-kerma to DG used were those tabulated by Dance et al. and in method 2 were the ones from Feng et al. The protocol for the examination followed in the unit of this study consists in two views per breast, each view composed by a 2D acquisition and a tomosynthesis scan (3D). The resulting DG values from both methods present statistically significant differences (p=0.02) for the 2D modality and were similar for the 3D scan (p=0.22). The estimated median value of DG for the most frequent breasts (thicknesses between 50 and 60 mm) delivered in a single 3D acquisition is 1.7 mGy (36% and 17% higher than the value for the 2D mode estimated with each method) which lies far below the tolerances established by the Spanish Protocol Quality Control in Radiodiagnostic (2011). The total DG for a tomosynthesis examination (6.0 mGy) is a factor 2.4 higher than the dose delivered in a 2D examination with two views (method 1). (Author)

    The disposal systems of radioactive residuals well-known as repositories near to the surface, are used to dispose residuals that can contain high concentrations of radionuclides of period of short semi disintegration, which they would decay at levels radiologically insignificant in some few decades or in some centuries: and acceptably low concentrations of radionuclides of period of long semi disintegration. The dose that would receive the critic group due to these systems it could be increased by cause of discreet events that affect the foreseen retard time, or by the gradual degradation of the barriers. To this last case it contributes the presence of water, because it implies leaching and dissolution that can give place to radionuclide concentrations in the underground water greater to the prospective ones. The dosimetric evaluation is important because it offers useful objective information to decide if a given repository is adjusted to the purposes of its design and it fulfills the regulatory requirements. In this work a simplified evaluation of the dose that would receive the critic group due to the liberation of contained radionuclides in a hypothetical system of final disposition of radioactive residuals is presented. For it, they are considered representative values of the usually contained activities in this type of systems and they are carried out some approaches of the source term. The study is developed in two stages. In the first one, by means of the Radionuclide pollutant scattering pattern in phreatic aquifers (DRAF) it is considered the scattering of the pollutants in the phreatic aquifer, until the discharge point in the course of the nearest surface water. This model, developed originally in the regulatory branch of the National Commission of Argentine Atomic Energy (CNEA); it solves the transport equation of solutes in porous means in three dimensions, by the finite differences method having in account the soil retention and the radioactive decay. In the second stage, the PC CREAM program (Consequences of Releases to the Environment Assessment Methodology) it allows to study the scattering in the surface water until the location of the critic group and to carry out the dosimetric evaluation. The objective of the work is to show the utility of these models to estimate, with regulatory purposes and by means of preservative criteria, the order of magnitude of the expected concentrations and the involved doses.

    It is quantified the radiation doses on skin for several radiodiagnostic studies in patients of the Calderon Guardia Hospital in San Jose, Costa Rica at the period October 1997-September 1998 using thermoluminescent dosemeters TLD 100. The crystals receive the decoction standard procedures and they are arranged at the middle of the irradiation field. For a total of 973 radiodiagnostic studies it was found that the dose on skin in mGy are: 2.09 for thorax AP/AP, 5.33 for thorax LAT, 5.35 for skull AP/PA, 2.98 for skull LAT, 10.74 for abdomen, hips and pelvis, 6.20 for spines AP, 9.35 for spines LAT, 11.48 for lumbar columns AP, 29.99 for lumbar columns LAT and 6.87 for intravenous skin diagrams (first plate ap). It is produced thus the first reference bank for the national hospitals, which is compared with the orientation levels of doses for IAEA. Recommendations to diminish the collective doses through quality control programs are discussed, taking as goal to have got radiographs of excellent diagnostic quality, but with the less possible doses.

    The ODCM (Offsite Dose Calculation Manual), the official operational document for all nuclear power plants develops the details for the technical specifications for discharges and governs their practical application. The use of ODCM methodology for managing and controlling data associated with radioactive discharges, as well as the subsequent processing of this data to assess the radiological impact, requires and generates a large volume of data, which demands the frequent application of laborious and complex calculation processes, making computerization necessary. The computer application created for Almaraz NPP has the capacity to store and manage data on all discharges, evaluate their effects, presents reports and copies the information to be sent periodically to the CSN (Spanish Nuclear Regulatory Commission) on a magnetic tape. The radiological impact of an actual or possible discharge can be evaluated at anytime and, furthermore, general or particular reports and graphs on the discharges and doses over time can be readily obtained. The application is run on a personal computer under a relational database management system. This interactive application is based on menus and windows. (author)

    Intensity-Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT) treatments require a quality assurance (Q A) specific patient before delivery. These controls include the experimental verification in dose phantom of the total plan as well as dose distributions. The use of independent dose calculation (IDC) is used in 3D-Crt treatments; however its application in IMRT requires the implementation of an algorithm that allows considering a non-uniform intensity beam. The purpose of this work was to develop IDC software in IMRT with MLC using the algorithm proposed by Kung (Kung et al. 2000). The software was done using Matlab programming. The Clarkson modified integral was implemented on each flowing, applying concentric rings for the dose determination. From the integral of each field was calculated the dose anywhere. One time finished a planning; all data are exported to a phantom where a Q A plan is generated. On this is calculated the half dose in a representative volume of the ionization chamber and the dose at the center of it. Until now 230 IMRT planning were analyzed carried out ??in the treatment planning system (Tps) Iplan. For each one of them Q A plan was generated, were calculated and compared calculated dose with the Tps, IDC system and measurement with ionization chamber. The average difference between measured and calculated dose with the IDC system was 0.4% ± 2.2% [-6.8%, 6.4%]. The difference between the measured and the calculated doses by the pencil-beam algorithm (Pb) of Tps was 2.6% ± 1.41% [-2.0%, 5.6%] and with the Monte Carlo algorithm was 0.4% ± 1.5% [-4.9%, 3.7%]. The differences of the carried out software are comparable to the obtained with the ionization chamber and Tps in Monte Carlo mode. (author)

    Utilization of nuclear energy to generate electricity is increasingly being used to replace fossil fuels. During operation of nuclear power plants, radioactive materials are produced, a small fraction of which are released to environment as liquid or gaseous effluents. Estimation of radiation doses caused by effluents release has three purposes. During design phase of a nuclear station it is useful to adapt the wastes treatment systems to acceptable limits. During licensing phase, the regulator organism verifies the design of nuclear station effectuating estimation of doses. Finally, during operation, before every unload of radioactive effluents, radiation doses should be evaluated in order to fulfill technical specifications limiting the release of radioactive materials to environment. 1. To perform calculations of individual doses due to liquid radioactive effluents unload in units 1 and 2 of Laguna Verde nuclear power plant (In licensing phase). 2. To perform a parametric study of the effect of unload recirculation over individual dose, since recirculation has two principal effects: thermodynamical effects in nuclear station and radioactivity concentration; the last can affect the fullfilment of dose limits. 3. To perform the calculation of collective doses causes by unloads of liquid effluents within a radius of 80 km of the plant caused by unload of liquid radioactive effluents during normal operation and does not include doses during accident conditions. In Mexico the organism in charge of regulation of peaceful uses of nuclear energy is Comision Nacional de Seguridad Nuclear y Salvaguardias (CNSNS) and for Laguna Verde licensing, the regulations of the country who manufactured the reactor (USA).

    Hemi fields treatments are widely used in radiotherapy. Because the tolerance established for the positioning of each jaw is 1 mm, may be cases of overlap or separation of up to 2 mm. This implies heterogeneity of doses up to 40% in the joint area. This paper presents an accurate method of calibration of the jaws so as to obtain homogeneous dose distributions when using this type of treatment. (Author)

    One of the important parameters of the design and evaluation of the bunker of a linear accelerator for radiotherapy is the dose at the point to be protected behind the barriers of the treatment room. In the case of primary barriers this dose is due to direct radiation and in the case of secondary barriers is the dose due to radiation that leaks from the head and the dose due to radiation scattered by the body of the patient. In Zacatecas the bunker in the oncology ward was designed for a linear accelerator of 18 MV, but an accelerator of the latest technology was installed, which is a linear accelerator of 6 MV for tomotherapy that has a better control of the applied dose. In order to determine the dose due to the scattered radiation that reaches the internal surfaces of the barriers of the room, thermoluminescent dosimeters (TLDs) of type 100 were used, which were placed on three occasions, in 9 points inside the bunker for periods of 7 days. During these periods, patients were routinely treated and treated for different tumors using different procedures. At each measurement point, 4 dosimeters were placed. The readings of the TLDs were used to calculate the environmental equivalent dose that was normalized to the applied dose. The highest doses were found on the surface of the accelerator and did not show symmetry, in the primary barriers the same doses were found and in the labyrinth the dose due to scattered radiation is influenced by the Compton dispersion that the photons scattered on the wall of the labyrinth background.

    A study of the frequency of examinations for diagnosis in the territory of Camaguey-Ciego de Avila, Cuba, was made from the accumulated statistic in the period of 1995-1999 with the objective to obtain data to estimate the collective dose distributed to the population of this territory. It was determined that the annual frequency average of examinations was of 3,82 by each 1000 inhabitants. The obtained data allowed to evaluate the contribution of the different examinations from the collective dose, corresponding to the gamma radiographs of thyroid and pick up 43,73 and 43,36%, respectively, of the 54,43 Sv.man distributed to the population like annual. In this work the annual behavior of the collective dose for the studied period and its behavior in relation to the frequency of made examinations are analyzed. The smaller annual collective dose corresponded to 1996 with 39,05 Sv.man, while the greater value corresponded to 1999 with 66,67 Sv.man. The additional total damage for the studied period is considered: there would be 19,87 additional cases like result of 21073 nuclear medicine examinations, of which 13,6 correspond to mortal cancer.

    Treatment of lung lesions using stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) requires algorithms with corrections that adequately model the behavior of narrow beams in the presence of tissue heterogeneities, although protocols such as RTOG 0236 excluded these kind of corrections. 100 cases were evaluated retrospectively following the RTOG 0813 and RTOG 0915 guidelines, by obtaining the deviations of the relevant dosimetric indicators from Monte Carlo (MC) and Pencil Beam (PB), maintaining the same configuration and monitor units (MU). Deviations between MC and PB have been classified according to the volume and density of the lesion. The greatest variations (up to 45% difference in D50%) are found for cases with lower volume and density, where the lesion is almost equivalent to lung tissue, given the higher proportion of air surrounding the periphery of the tumor, and the reduction of the radiation fields, resulting in a lack of electronic equilibrium that must be properly considered in the treatment planning system. These deviations involve dosimetric implications which are observable in clinical outcomes, determining how to proceed in treatment planning, to ensure that the actual dose delivered is performed accordingly to the prescription dose, while requiring the use of algorithms with a proper heterogeneity correction.

    Thyroid dose estimation at Radioisotope Production Centre workers using WBC and calculation based on I-131 concentration in working area has been done. The aim of this research is to get the relation between WBC result and calculation using I-131 concentration in working area. The result indicates differences in a range of 3,2% to 53,2%. These differences caused of parameters which influence the calculation are not accurate. These results also indicate that dose estimation using WBC is relatively batter and more accurate but need to have certain information about time of intake.

    It was done a survey in radiotherapy services underground hospitals and clinics of Venezuela and Paraguay in order to estimate the concentrations of radon and its possible consequences on worker occupational exposure. Passive dosimeters were used to assess nuclear traces (NTD type CR-39 Registered-Sign ). The concentration of {sup 222}Rn is determined based on the density of traces using the calibration coefficient of 1 tr/cm{sup 2} equivalent to 0,434 Bqm{sup -3} per month of exposure. Assuming the most likely environmental conditions and the dose conversion factor equal to 9.0 x 10{sup -6} mSv h {sup -1} by Bqm{sup -3}, it was determined the average values and estimated the possible risks to health that are on average 3.0 mSva{sup -1} and 150 micro risk cancer.

    In this work is presented in a didactic way the operative magnitudes system ICRU, showing as these magnitudes carry out an appropriate estimate of the effective equivalent doses H{sub E} and the effective dose. The objective is to present the basic concepts of the dosimetry for radiation external fields with purposes of radiological protection, because the assimilation lack and technological development of this dosimetric magnitudes system has persisted for near 50 years, in terms of practice of the radiological protection in Mexico. Also, this system is an essential part of safety basic standards of the IAEA and ICRP recommendations 26, 60, 74 and 103, as well as of the ICRU 25, 39, 43, 51 and 57. (Author)

    The use of less invasive procedures, lower risk and quick recovery as cardiac intervention have proven to be an efficient alternative to reestablish the correct bloodstream of the patient. In this case the patient is subjected to values of absorbed dose above to which is subjected in a study with X-rays for medical diagnosis, and this can cause radiation injuries to the skin. The target organ, in this case can be exposed to doses of 2 Gy above. Different methods to estimate the dose were use, physical by Radiochromic film, as biological by dicentric analysis. Both methods provided additional information demonstrating thus the risk in the target organ and the patient. The most reliable biological indicator of exposure to ionizing radiation is the study of chromosomal aberrations, specifically dicentric in human lymphocytes. This test allowed establishing the exposure dose depending of the damage. (Author)

    One of the personal dosimetry methods more used for several decades is the dosimetry type film, characterized to possess readings with certain margin of trust. Today other methods exist that many times are presupposed more reliable due to the nature of the detection like the electronic dosimeters or the OSL (Optically Stimulated Luminescence) dosimetry. With the purpose of comparing different methods and to can determining the existent differences among each method has been carried out an intercomparison assay. The different dosimeters have been exposed to dispersed radiation generated by a Hemodynamics equipment of the type -arch in C- and a dispersing system of the primary beam. Film dosimeters have been used; OSL (In Light), OSL (Nano Dots) and Electronic with the purpose of knowing and to valorize the existent differences among its readings. Always, the intercomparison exercises have demonstrated to be an useful tool when establishing the measurement capacity and the quality of the results emitted by the laboratories of personal dosimetry services. Also, this type of assays allows obtaining quality indicators of the laboratory performance and they are habitual part of the procedures for accreditation of the same ones. The Optically Stimulated Luminescence is a technology that has grown in Argentina so much in the area of personal dosimetry as in dosimetry in vivo (radiotherapy area). In this intercomparison study, the answers corresponding to each technology were looked for oneself irradiation of the disperse type, that is to say, of very low energy. (Author)

    In order to guarantee that the error limit in the dose administration is inside of the recommended limit by the ICRU (the ICRU recommends that the doses administrated in radiotherapy must be inside of a total deviation {+-} 5 %), the radiotherapy services are maintaining quality control programs and dosimetry which guarantee that the equipment yield or source should be known with precision. The Quality Control Programs foresee moreover the radiation beam calibration dosimetry, the In vivo dosimetry for obtaining a greater control of the administered doses. At present it counts on greater devices for maintaining the deviations inside this margin, and one of them is the u se of masks. The present work was carried out on a Siemens equipment model Gammatron S-80 (Co-60) in the Radiotherapy Service of the Sao Paulo University Hospital where teletherapy procedures are realized.

    In radiotherapy it is recommended the use of an independent procedure of checking dose calculations, in order to verify the main treatment planning system and double check every patient dosimetry. In this work we present and automatic spreadsheet that import data from planning system using IMPAC/RTP format and verify monitor unit calculation using an independent calculus algorithm. Additionally, it perform a personalized analysis of dose volume histograms and several radiobiological parameters like TCP and NTCP. Finally, the application automatically generate a clinical dosimetry report for every patient, including treatment fields, fractionation, independent check results, dose volume analysis, and first day forms.

    In our treatments are performed brachytherapy high dose rate since 2007. The procedures performed include gynecological intracavitary treatment and interstitial. The treatments are performed with a source of Ir-192 activity between 5 and 10 Ci such that small variations in treatment times can cause damage to the patient. In addition the Royal Decree 1566/1998 on Quality Criteria in radiotherapy establishes the need to verify the monitor units or treatment time in radiotherapy and brachytherapy. All this justifies the existence of a redundant system for brachytherapy dose calculation that can reveal any abnormality is present.

    This paper presents the results obtained from a study of the radiation induced oxidation of crystalline ferrous ammonium sulfate with gamma rays at 295 K, 263 K and 77 K and dose from 0 to 300 kGy. The radiation induced decomposition of ferrous ammonium sulfate has been studied by the dissolution of the irradiated salt in 0,8 N sulfuric acid. The main product is Fe{sup 3+} and molar concentration of ferric ion was determined spectrophotometrically in the UV region at 304 nm. The optical density values showed a linear dependence with dose, indicating that the data obtained might be used to create a calibrating curve. Color in irradiated salt changes from blue to green, yellow and orange according to the absorbed dose. The accuracy and the reproducibility of the system were tested. In addition, some other characteristics make possible the use of this system as a dosimeter, similar to Fricke chemical dosemeter, at low temperatures and high dose. (Author)

    Purpose: determination of the influence of tube currents varying during a CT scan on organ doses and on the effective dose as a function of patient constitution. Evaluation of the accuracy of effective dose calculations based on summarizing parameters (effective mAs, dose length product [DLP]) compared to calculations based on slice-specific tube currents. Materials and methods: investigation of the CT datasets of 806 patients acquired from the skull base to the proximal thigh with respect to the body mass index (BMI). The effective dose was calculated by means of slice-specific as well as region-specific conversion factors. Results: dose optimization by means of variable tube current resulted in a reduction of the gonad dose in patients with BMI {<=} 20.. 21 kg/m{sup 2} and of the effective dose in patients with BMI {<=} 26 kg/m{sup 2}. Effective dose values calculated with the DLP for 90% of the patients are within an interval of {+-} 20% of the values calculated using slice-specific tube currents. Conclusion: if tube current optimization during the CT scan was applied, for the scan region under investigation, at a BMI already below the German mean value, an increased effective dose was observed. Calculations of the effective dose on the basis of summarizing values such as DLP or effective mAs are of sufficient accuracy. (orig.)

    The possible relation between stored energy, thermoluminescence and colour centre annealing in gamma and electron irradiated alkali halides is studied. Thermoluminescence occurs at temperature higher than the temperature at which the main stored energy peak appears. No stored energy release is detected in additively coloured KC1 samples. Plastic deformation and doping with Ca and Sr induce a stored energy spectrum different from the spectrum observed in pure and as cleaved samples, but the amount of stored energy does not change for a given irradiation dose.Capacity of alkali halides to store energy by irradiation increases as the cation size decreases.

    The Nuclear Regulatory Authority is performing an analysis with PC CREAM, developed at the NRPB, for updating computer programs and models used for calculating the transfer of radionuclides through the environment. For CREAM dose assessment verification for local scenarios, this paper presents a comparison of population doses assessed with the computer codes used nowadays and with CREAM, for unitary releases of main radionuclides in nuclear power plant discharges. The results of atmospheric dispersion processes and the transfer of radionuclides through the environment for local scenarios are analysed. The programs used are PLUME for atmospheric dispersion, FARMLAND for the transfer of radionuclides into foodstuffs following atmospheric deposition in the terrestrial environment and ASSESSOR for individual and collective dose assessments.This paper presents the general assumptions made for dose assessments. The results show some differences between doses due to differences in models, in the complexity level of the same models, or in parameters. (author)

    The radiosynoviortesis treatment has been used during more of 40 years as an alternative to the chemical and surgical synovectomy to alleviate the pain and to reduce the inflammation in suffered patients of rheumatic arthropathies, haemophilic arthropathies and other articulation disorders. It consists on the injection of radioactive isotopes inside a synovial cavity. For to evaluate the dosimetry of the radiosynoviortesis treatment is of great interest to know the absorbed dose in the volume of the target (synovia). The precise calculation of the absorbed dose in the inflamed synovia it is difficult, for numerous reasons, since the same one will depend on the thickness of the synovial membrane, the size of the articular space, the structure of the synovial membrane, the distribution in the articulation, the nature of the articular liquid, etc. Also the presence of the bone and the articular cartilage, components also of the articulation, it even complicated more the calculations. The method used to evaluate the dosimetry in radioactive synovectomy is known as the Monte Carlo method. The objective of our work consists on estimating with the Monte Carlo code MCNP4B the absorbed dose of the Y-90 and the P-32 in the depth of the synovial tissue. The results are presented as absorbed dose for injected millicurie (Gy/mCi) versus depth of synovial tissue. The simulation one carries out keeping in mind several synovia areas, of 50 cm{sup 2} to 250 cm{sup 2} keeping in mind three states of progression of the illness. Those obtained values of absorbed dose using the MCNP4B code will allow to introduce in our country an optimized method of dose prescription to the patient, to treat the rheumatic arthritis in medium and big articulations using the Y-90 and the P-32, eliminating the fixed doses and fixed radionuclides for each articulation like it happens in many clinics of Europe, as well as the empiric doses.

    On European level, in 2014 the dose limit for the lens of the eye of radiation exposed workers has been reduced from 150 to 20 mSv per year (2013/59/Euratom). Data about eye lens exposition measured under realistic operational conditions of Austrian radiation exposed workers is sparse and there is no information to verify, if all professional groups identified to be at risk for elevated eye doses will remain below the new annual dose limit. Therefore, financed by the Austrian Workers Compensation Board, AUVA, a pilot study has been initiated to answer this question. Based on published information professional groups of radiation exposed workers and operational tasks with an enhanced risk of elevated eye lens doses have been identified. By dosimetric measurements with volunteers (forehead dose meters and parallel measurements with whole-body TL-dose meters above and under the lead apron) realistic lens doses will be estimated during selected radiation exposed tasks. Comparison of yielded doses will show whether a TLD outside the apron could serve as an alternative to forehead dose meters dedicated to measure eye lens doses. Measurements with leaded protective eyewear based on IEC61331 yield results for lead equivalent in good agreement with manufacturers' information. Results for eye lens doses determined by use of a RANDO head phantom and a standardized phantom simulating a body in a typical exposition situation for interventional radiologists show that wearing of leaded goggles allows for a 90% dose reduction. Under such conditions the eye lens dose is dominated by backscatter and stray radiation from the operator's head and patient body. This has to be considered for the evaluation of protective effectiveness for leaded eye wear.

    The {sup 60} Co TRANSELEKTRO, model LGI-0 1, Hungarian, is similar to the Canadian Gamma cell. The evaluation of the dose ratio in the geometric center of the exposition chamber of the LGI-0 1 is presented in this paper. In order to do this two types of dosimeters were used: the alanine, and the L8-C 1 red acrylic (Canadian). Three dosimeters of each type were irradiated at 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 and 8 h. The respective intensities and absorbencies were measured and used to determine the proper absorbed doses and the dose ratio. The results obtained with both dosimeters were compared with the ratio dose that was reported by the Secondary Laboratory of Dosimetric Calibration of the Metrology Department of the ININ, which used a ionization chamber for the calibration of the LGI-0 1. The alanine dosemeter showed a {+-} 1.3% dispersion while with the acrylic dosemeter the dispersion was of {+-} 3.2%, with respect to the value reported by the authorized Calibration Laboratory. This paper was also used to update the calibration table of the L8-C1 red acrylic. (Author)

    In the last years an increment in the use of Computer Tomography (CT) has been observed as an efficient diagnostic method. On the other hand, this type of study involves high doses levels which are imparted to the patient. In Cuba, there are not reported values of that doses levels for typical CT studies. The National Control Center for Medical Devices has been developing for several years investigations for knowing the guidance doses levels for different examinations in radiodiagnosis, taking into account the recommendations made for The International Basic Safety Standards, which have been adopted in Cuba. This paper presents an study of imparted doses for typical head examinations in 10 CT scanners (6 are helical and 3 axial technology). Values of CTDI, CTDIw (weighed) and nCTDIw (weighted and normalized) were calculated. The relation between CTDI at surface and CTDI in the center of the phantom for the highest slice width was calculated for each CT scanner. Others parameters, such as CT number and its special uniformity, noise, contrast scale, sensibility profiles, MTF evaluation, table movement and alignment between lasers and radiation field, have also obtained. These parameters were evaluated by means of the manufacturer's phantom (Siemens). (author)

    A method for determining chromosomal aberrations was established for the purpose of examining the relative biological effectiveness (RBE) of photon radiation with respect to mammary epithelium cells. Cells were exposed to 25 kV X-radiation and to 200 kV X-radiation for comparison and the resulting concentrations of chromosomal aberrations were compared. The RBE{sub M} value for radiation-induced fragmentation was found to be 4.2 {+-} 2.4, while the RBE{sub M} value for radiation-induced generation of dicentric chromosomes was found to be 0.5 {+-} 0.5. In addition to the evaluation of chromosomal aberrations the number of cell cycles undergone by the cells was monitored by means of BrDU staining. As expected, the proportion of cells which underwent more than one cell cycle following exposure to 5 Gy was very low in both cases, amounting to 1.9% (25 kV) and 3.2 (200 kV). Non-radiated cells yielded control values of 26.0% and 12.6%, suggesting variations in external conditions from day to day.

    Ionizing radiations are very useful in the medical field for the diagnostic use of different pathologies. Currently there are different technologies for diagnostic imaging using conventional X-ray, computed tomography, mammography, angiography, dental panoramic X-ray, among others. However, it should be noted that exposure to radiation in this type of diagnostic tests has increased considerably in recent years, because radiological examinations are not always carried out according to the actual clinical needs of each patient, increasing the risk to develop cancer. In this paper, the absorbed dose in the lens and thyroid gland was measured with the help of TLD-100 dosimeters located in a PMMA phantom adapted for orthopantomography (dental panoramic X-ray) equipment in 5 hospitals; using the parameters pre-configured for normal adult for irradiation.

    The number of medical examinations and procedures that use ionizing radiation have continuously increased in recently years. More than 90% of human-generated exposures to ionizing radiation are from medical uses and the collective dose due to patient exposures is 200 times greater than the occupational dose of exposed workers. At the same time, the emergence of new technologies, the increased use of Computerized Tomography (CT)-even for pediatric patients- the development of digital radiography, interventional radiology and the new technologies in nuclear medicine with the use of hybrid PET/CT and SPECT/CT equipment have all contributed as well to an increase in the doses received by patients. This poses a challenge to the regulatory authorities in the field of radiological protection, the goal of which is to makes sure that the risks to patients are as low as possible compared to the benefits yielded by the use of ionizing radiation for medical purposes, in accordance with ALARA criteria.

    In the case of final nuclear waste disposal there are concurrent interests with respect to radiation protection: The realization of a disposal option with minimum required follow-up care needs time causing additional radiation exposure for the employees, also the option of long-term storage, surveillance and retrieval possibilities cause additional dose to employees. The contribution discusses possible consideration of requests for the different options.

    Full Text Available O uso das radiações ionizantes na destruição de microrganismos responsáveis pela deterioração de alimentos ou causadores de infecções ou toxinfecções alimentares, constituiu-se aplicação da energia nuclear, para fins verdadeiramente pacíficos. Penicillium citrinum é um fungo produtor de micotoxinas, responsáveis por intoxicações em humanos e animais que se utilizam de alimentos contaminados. Há escassez de informações sobre a resistência do P. citrinum à irradiação gama; assim esta pesquisa objetivou determinar a dose letal por irradiação gama para esse microrganismo. Foram irradiadas 76 suspensões, contendo aproximadamente 100.000 esporos por mililitro, com doses entre 0,2 e 2,2 KGy (KiloGray, sendo os sobreviventes re-irradiados com doses até 3,0 KGy. O fungo foi totalmente destruído com dose de 2,2 KGy. P. citrinum descendentes dos sobreviventes de 2,0 KGy, quando re-irradiados também foram totalmente destruídos com dose de 2,2 KGy. Observou-se um aumento da resistência às doses mais baixas em relação ao fungo não irradiadoThe use of nuclear power through radiation for the destruction of microrganisms which cause food decay, and toxicosis, is specifically for peaceful purposes. Penicillium citrinum is a fungus which produce mycotoxins responsible for intoxication in humans and animals as a result of eating contaminated food. There is little informations on the resistance of P. citrinum to radiation. The objective of this research is to determine the lethal dose of gama radiation for these microrganisms. Seventy six suspensions containing approximately 100,000 spores/ml received a dose of radiation between 0.2 and 2.2 KGy (KiloGray, being one sample still alive re-irradiated with doses up to 3.0 KGy. The fungus were totally destroyed with a 2.2 KGy. Seventy six suspensions containing approximately 100,000 spores/ml received a dose of radiation between 0.2 and 2.2 KGy, being one sample still alive re-irradiated with doses up to 3.0 KGy. The fungus were totally destroyed with a 2.2 KGy dose. An increase in the resistance to lower dose levels of radiation was observed, in relation to the fungus which had not received irradiation. Conclusion: the Minimum Lethal Dose (MLD of gamma irradiation, for P. citrinum is 2.2 KGy; the re-irradiation of the surviving fungus demonstrate that occur appearence of radio-resistant mutants

    Namely the operational magnitudes can be determined by the product of a conversion coefficient by exposure air kerma or fluence, etc. In particular in Mexico for the first time is determined the conversion coefficient (Cc) for operational magnitude Environmental Dose Equivalent H(10) by thermoluminescence dosimetry (TLD) technique. First 30 TLD-100 dosimeters are calibrated in terms of air kerma, then these dosimeters are irradiated inside a sphere ICRU type of PMMA and with the aid of theory cavity the absorbed dose in PMMA is determined at a depth of 10 mm within the sphere D{sub PMMA}(10), subsequently absorbed dose to ICRU tissue is corrected and the dose equivalent H(10) is determined. The Cc is determined as the ratio of H(10)/K{sub a} obtaining a value of 1.20 Sv Gy{sup -1} with a u{sub c}= 3.66%, this being consistent with the published value in ISO-4037-3 of 1.20 Sv Gy{sup -1} with a u{sub c}= 2%.

    Using the dosimetry MIRD, and representation Cristy-Eckerman in the thyroid gland and organs of their bio-kinetics when I{sup 123} (Iodine) is used, the study demonstrates that the absorbed dose by the gland of an adult, children, and newly born, is their auto-dose, independent of the compartments number of their bio-kinetics. The dosimetric contributions of the organs of their bio-kinetics are insignificant. Their results are not significantly different to those obtained by the formalism MARINELLI (auto-dose) when it uses a sphere like glandular representation. In consequence, the kinetic model corresponding to the glandular representation decreases to a compartment, where the gland can also be represented like a sphere. (Author)

    In cases of criticality accidents it is required a fast dosimetric system that allows to evaluate the doses of the personnel involved. The reaction (n,y) with sodium presented in the body ({sup 23}Na), generates {sup 24}Na, that emits two gamma of 1369KeV and 2754 KeV that can be measured using a whole body counter. The experienced were carried out with the irradiation of {sup 252} Cf of a phantom with a solution of NaCl in water. After the irradiation it was measured the {sup 24}Na activity in the whole body counter, which has a HPGe detector previously calibrated in energy and efficiency. Considering the correction by decay, the quantity of {sup 23}Na presented in the body of an adult and elimination curve of {sup 24}Na, it was established a coefficient of neutronic doses by unity of activity of {sup 24}Na measured in the whole body counter. This method is useful for the retrospective estimation of the doses, as well as to carry out a radiological sorting in case of criticality.

    Personal dose equivalent (PDE) values were determined for occupational exposed workers (OEW) at the Nuclear Medicine Department (NMD) of Instituto Nacional de Cancerologia (INCan), Mexico, using TLD-100 thermoluminescent dosemeters. OEW at NMD, INCan make use of radiopharmaceuticals for diagnosis and treatment of diseases. Radionuclides associated to a pharmaceutical compound used at this Department are {sup 131}I, {sup 18}F, {sup 67}Ga, {sup 99m}Tc, {sup 111}In and {sup 201}Tl with main gamma emission energies between 93 and 511 keV. Dosemeter calibration was performed at the metrology department of Instituto Nacional de Investigaciones Nucleares, Mexico. Every occupational worker used dark containers with three dosemeters which were replaced monthly for a total of 5 periods. Additionally, control dosemeters were also placed at a site free of radioactive sources in order to determine the background radiation. Results were adjusted to find PDE/day and estimating annual PDE values in the range between 2 mSv (background) and a maximum of 9 mSv. Two of the 16 members of the OEW receive high estimated annual doses (6-9 mSv), other 5 receive annual doses between 3 and 5 mSv, other 3 between 2.5 and 3 mSv, and the rest receive dose values consistent with background radiation. These values are dependent on their daily activities and it is clear that the maximum doses are received by those OEW who perform nursing duties and receive radiopharmaceuticals for daily use. All obtained values are well within the established annual OEW dose limit stated in the General Regulation of Radiological Protection, Mexico (50 mSv) as well as within the lower limit recommended by the International Commission on Radiation Protection, report no. 60 (20 mSv). Additionally, consistence was found between measured monthly values and those reported by the firm that performs the monthly service. These results verify the adequate compliance of the NMD at INCan, Mexico with the standards given by the national regulatory commission. (Author)

    The adequacy of the couple formed by the GAFCHROMIC XR-R film and the MICROTEK Scan Maker 8700 for skin dose determination has been evaluated. The main advantages are the ease of use the films, since it can be manipulated without special care and the ability to archive it in the dosimetric history of the patient. The main limiting factors coming from the scanner are the reproducibility over time and noise in the digitization; it is shown that this last component can be minimized at the cost of resolution. From the film itself, the limiting factors are the inter and intra film uniformity. Contributing an 6,5% to the overall uncertainty in dose determination. Overall, it has been shown that skin dose determination is possible with this film with an uncertainty below 10%. (Author)

    The problems associated with insecurity and terrorism have forced to designing systems for detecting nuclear materials, drugs and explosives that are installed on roads, ports and airports. Organic materials are composed of C, H, O and N; similarly the explosive materials are manufactured which can be distinguished by the concentration of these elements. Its elemental composition, particularly the concentration of hydrogen and oxygen, allow distinguish them from other organic substances. When these materials are irradiated with neutrons nuclear reactions (n, γ) are produced, where the emitted photons are ready gamma rays whose energy is characteristic of each element and its abundance allows estimating their concentration. The aim of this study was designed using Monte Carlo methods a system with neutron source, gamma rays detector and moderator able to distinguish the presence of Rdx and urea. In design were used as moderators: paraffin, light water, polyethylene and graphite; as detectors were used HPGe and the NaI(Tl). The design that showed the best performance was the moderator of light water and HPGe, with a source of {sup 241}AmBe. For this design, the values of ambient dose equivalent around the system were calculated. (Author)

    The present study has as objective to evaluate the radiation levels of the Brachytherapy work areas of low dose rate (Gammateque, nurses station and of hospitalization rooms of patients RIC of 4th, 5th Floor-East) and to estimate the effective dose of the occupationally exposed personnel and the public in general. The measurements of the dose rate in these areas, were registered with a radiations monitor Inspector trademark, during a period of 60 days, without altering the routinary work conditions. The more high levels of environmental dose equivalent rate registered in the different work areas its are of 1.41 and 47.78 {mu}Sv/h rooms 1 and 2 in the Gammateque environments, in the hospitalization rooms of the 4th and 5th floor in the point 1 are of 40.77 and 23.67, {mu}Sv/h respectively and in the point 2 are of 129.19 and 39.93, {mu}Sv/h respectively, and in the nurses station of the 4th and 5th floor its are respectively of 7.62 u Sv/h and 0.45 u Sv/h. According to the carried out measurements and the permanency in the work place is possible to estimate the effective dose involved to the occupationally exposed personnel. The personnel that works in Gammateque could be receiving respectively as maximum dose 0.61 mSv/month, and the personnel that works in the nurses station of 13.17 and 0.78 mSv/year in the 4th and 5th floor. These registered differences among the two floors are due to that the 5th floor counts with the shielding systems (screen) contrary to the 4th, another of the factors is the distribution form of the patient beds RIC. We should have present that the radiation levels although in some cases it is very high, however, they are below of the permissible limits according to standards, but it is still possible to reduce even more, the radiation levels in the critical points fulfilling with the ALARA principle.

    In this work they are studied, by means of Monte Carlo simulation, the effects that take place in the dose profiles that are obtained with the Leksell Gamma Knife (R), when they are kept in account heterogeneities. The considered heterogeneities simulate the skull and the spaces of air that are in the head, like they can be the nasal breasts or the auditory conduits. The calculations were made using the Monte Carlo Penelope simulation code (v. 2003). The geometry of each one of the 201 sources that this instrument is composed, as well as of the corresponding channels of collimation of the Gamma Knife (R), it was described by means of a simplified model of geometry that has been recently studied. The obtained results when they are kept in mind the heterogeneities they present non worthless differences regarding those obtained when those are not considered. These differences are maximum in the proximities of the interfaces among different materials. (Author)

    In the Nuclear Medicine service of the Clinica San Pablo (Peru), the occupationally exposed workers carried out the preparation and administration of radiopharmaceuticals to patients, so it is vital to measure the equivalent dose to the hands during the procedures in order to optimize the exposure to the ionizing radiation and execute the Radiological Safety Regulation (D.S. No. 009-97-Em) and the standard IR 002.2012 of radiation protection and safety in nuclear medicine. In this paper was designed and built a hand anthropomorphic phantom made of paraffin following the description given for the standard man, later were placed dosimeters ring and wrist type UD-807 model, Panasonic brand. Then we proceeded to irradiate using vial containers of Tc-99 and I-131. The obtained results showed the difference between the equivalent dose obtained among the ring and wrist dosimeter also getting a dose of 153 mSv /year when working with {sup 99m}Tc and of 61 mSv /year when working with iodine-131. Was also demonstrated that the ring dosimeter shows the average dose received in the hand with less dispersion. It was found that under the national regulation on Requirements of Radiation Protection and Nuclear Safety in Medicine article 63, indicates that higher doses of 150 mSv /year the occupationally exposed workers should have hand dosimetry. Finally the individual dose limit of 500 mSv /year in extremities can be overcome if adequate radiation protection standards do not apply. (author)

    Radon causes more than 50 % of total dose from natural background radiation per year. It is widely demonstrated the capacity of radon to induce lung cancer in people exposed to this radioactive gas for long periods. Radon emerges continuously from materials that constitute soils, building materials and minerals present in our natural environment, all over the world. In our country, it is necessary to get better regulations to control the exposition of people to this gas inside buildings, dwellings and facilities where people spend their time. Our country has very simple and scarce regulations on this respect. At present, national regulations about radon are adaptations of recommendations and guides published for international organizations but without national studies or statistics to give realistic support to those rules. This work propose a classification for closed spaces where people live and work in this country taking into consideration their {sup 222}Rn concentration and probable doses involved. (authors).

    Full text: In this study irradiation geometry applicable to PCXMC and the consequent calculation of effective dose in applications of cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) was developed. Two different CBCT equipment s for dental applications were evaluated: Care Stream Cs-9000 3-Dimensional and Gendex GXCB-500 tomographs. Each protocol initially was characterized by measuring the surface kerma input and the product air kerma-area, P{sub KA}. Then, technical parameters of each of the predetermined protocols and geometric conditions in the PCXMC software were introduced to obtain the values of effective dose. The calculated effective dose is within the range of 9.0 to 15.7 μSv for Cs 9000 3-D and in the range 44.5 to 89 mSv for GXCB-500 equipment. These values were compared with dosimetric results obtained using thermoluminescent dosimeters implanted in anthropomorphic mannequin and were considered consistent. The effective dose results are very sensitive to the radiation geometry (beam position); this represents a factor of fragility software usage, but on the other hand, turns out to be a very useful tool for quick conclusions regarding the optimization process of protocols. We can conclude that the use of Monte Carlo simulation software PCXMC is useful in the evaluation of test protocols of CBCT in dental applications. (Author)

    los 2, 4 y 6 meses de edad en un grupo de 207 niños costarricenses que habían recibido al nacer una dosis de la vacuna contra la HB. Posteriormente, en la fase de vacunación de recuerdo, realizada en 1999-2000, se midió la persistencia de anticuerpos y se evaluó la respuesta a los recuerdos de DTPw-HB/Hib o DTPw/Hib en un subgrupo de 69 niños que tenían entonces 15 a 18 meses. Resultados. La vacunación primaria proporcionó concentraciones protectoras de anticuerpos frente a los antígenos empleados en las vacunas en al menos el 97,5% de los lactantes de ambos grupos. La vacuna combinada pentavalente DTPw-HB/Hib no originó más reacciones locales que la vacuna DTPw-HB aislada. Con respecto a las reacciones generales, no hubo diferencias clínicamente significativas entre ambas vacunas, y la combinada pentavalente tuvo la ventaja de necesitar una inyección menos. Nueve meses después de la tercera dosis de la vacunación primaria, la persistencia de anticuerpos fue similar en ambos grupos: más del 93% de los niños todavía tenían títulos protectores de anticuerpos frente al Hib, la HB y el tétanos, y cerca del 50% de ellos frente a la difteria y la tos ferina. A los 15 meses de edad, prácticamente todos los niños presentaron una fuerte respuesta de recuerdo a todos los antígenos de las vacunas, independientemente de que recibieran recuerdos de DTPw-HB/Hib pentavalente o DTPw/Hib. Ambos recuerdos fueron igualmente bien tolerados, lo cual indica que se pueden administrar hasta cinco dosis de vacuna contra la hepatitis B sin que haya problemas de seguridad. Conclusiones. Este estudio confirma que la vacuna pentavalente DTPw-HB/Hib es altamente inmunogénica en la vacunación primaria de niños vacunados contra la HB al nacer, y que la combinación pentavalente produce inmunidad persistente y potenciable mediante la administración de dosis de recuerdo. La vacuna pentavalente fue segura en la vacunación tanto primaria como de recuerdo. Por consiguiente

    Molecular targeting therapy has become a relevant therapeutic strategy for cancer. The principle that peptide receptors can be used successfully for in vivo targeting of human cancers has been proven, and radiolabeled peptides have been demonstrated to be effective in patients with malignant tumors. Peptides based on the cyclic Arg-Gly-Asp (RGD) sequence have been designed to antagonize the function of α(v)β(3) integrin, thereby inhibiting angio genesis. The conjugation of RGD peptides to radiolabeled gold nanoparticles (AuNP) produces biocompatible and stable m ultimeric systems with target-specific molecular recognition. The aim of this research was to evaluate the therapeutic response of {sup 177}Lu-AuNP-RGD in athymic mice bearing α(v)β(3)-integrin-positive C6 gliomas and compare with that of {sup 177}Lu-AuNP or {sup 177}Lu-RGD. The radiation absorbed dose, metabolic activity (SUV, [18F]fluor-deoxy-glucose-micro PET/CT), renal radiotoxicity, renal and tumoral histological characteristics as well as tumoral VEGF and HIF-1? gene expression (by realtime polymerase chain reaction) following treatment with {sup 177}Lu-AuNP-RGD, {sup 177}Lu-AuNP or {sup 177}Lu-RGD were assessed. Of the radiopharmaceuticals evaluated, {sup 177}Lu-AuNP-RGD delivered the highest tumor radiation absorbed dose (63.8 ± 7.9 Gy) vs other treatments. These results correlated with the observed therapeutic response, in which {sup 177}Lu-AuNP-RGD significantly (p<0.05) reduced tumor progression, tumor metabolic activity, intratumoral vessels and VEGF gene expression compared to the other radiopharmaceuticals. This was consequence of high tumor retention and a combination of molecular targeting therapy (m ultimeric RGD system) and radiotherapy ({sup 177}Lu). There was a low uptake in non-target organs and no induction of renal toxicity. {sup 177}Lu-AuNP-RGD demonstrates properties suitable for use as an agent for molecular targeting radiotherapy.

    precios de venta al por menor corrientes en 1959-1963, se ha calculado que en los Estados Unidos las perdidas por deterioro de naranjas y pomelos ascienden a 8,4 y 5,4 millones de dolares, respectivamente. La putrefaccion del pedunculo y las prodredumbres verde y cardena son las que causan mayores perdidas por descomposicion en los agrios despues de la recoleccion. No es posible administrar una sola dosis de irradiacion que baste para proteger a los agrios contra la descomposicion. Para retardar infecciones antiguas o arraigadas se necesitan dosis de irradiacion mayores que para retardar las infecciones incipientes. En la lucha contra las infecciones por irradiacion gamma influye tanto la intensidad del flujo como la magnitud de la dosis. Los agrios frescos sufren alteraciones metabolicas que terminan por provocar la senescencia. En algunos casos, estas alteraciones comprenden variaciones de la actividad respiratoria, del contenido de acidos organicos, azucares y sustancias icticas, asi como de la coloracion. Los efectos de los danos producidos por las radiaciones son parecidos en muchos aspectos a la perdida de vitalidad celular en la senescencia. La irradiacion produce modificaciones en los componentes pecticos de los frutos. En general, aumentan las fracciones de agua y de oxalato amonico soluble y disminuye la fraccion de hidroxido sodico soluble. El zumo exprimido de frutos irradiados presenta un gran aumento de la pectina soluble en agua. Al parecer, este aumento se debe a la afluencia de pectina soluble en agua proveniente de otras partes del fruto. El resultado es un neto incremento de la viscosidad del zumo. A raiz de la irradiacion y almacenamiento del fruto se observan a veces lesiones de la piel. La proporcion de frutos que presentan estas lesiones y la gravedad de las mismas aumentan con la temperatura y la duracion del almacenamiento.

    Lethal effects were studied for the egg, larval and pupal stages as well as sterilization of adults of Sitophilus oryzae (L.) by the application of gamma radiation. Irradiation of pupae with an estimated dosis of 7887 {+-} 158 rad inhibits adult emergency. Hypotheses have been suggested that the apparent density and (or) nutrient value of food substrates decisively influence the sterilizing dosis for this insect. Thus, in rice and maize which are apparently denser and (or) of higher nutrient value than maccaroni, insects are sterilized by a dosis of 7 krad, while in maccaroni the sterilizing dosis decreases to 5 krad.

The overall mortality rate in emergency operations was 12.5%, and the rate of DOSI was 5.6%. A total of 18.0% required ventilatory support in more than 48 hours, and 16.0% required reoperation. Predictors of DOSI included age, steroid use, sepsis or septic shock on admission, severe wound contamination, and advanced American Society of Anesthesiologists classification. The anatomic location of resection and anastomosis was not significantly associated with DOSI. Patients undergoing emergency bowel resection and anastomosis have a high mortality, risk of DOSI, and systemic complications. Independent predictors of DOSI include wound and American Society of Anesthesiologists classification, sepsis or septic shock on admission, and steroid use. The anatomic location of resection and anastomosis was not significantly associated with DOSI. Epidemiologic/prognostic study, level III.

  4. Gamma radiation effects in Sitophilus oryzae (Linne, 1763) (Coleoptera, Curculionidae)

    Lethal effects were studied for the egg, larval and pupal stages as well as sterilization of adults of Sitophilus oryzae (L.) by the application of gamma radiation. Irradiation of pupae with an estimated dosis of 7887 ± 158 rad inhibits adult emergency. Hypotheses have been suggested that the apparent density and (or) nutrient value of food substrates decisively influence the sterilizing dosis for this insect. Thus, in rice and maize which are apparently denser and (or) of higher nutrient value than maccaroni, insects are sterilized by a dosis of 7 krad, while in maccaroni the sterilizing dosis decreases to 5 krad.

Si l'on implante des aiguilles d'activite standard dans la glande sans tenir compte de ses dimensions, on ne peut pas administrer a la glande une dose standard; il convient donc d'adapter les dimensions et l'activite de la source aux dimensions de la glande.

    In this study the absorbed dose by the uterus of a woman with three months of pregnancy to who was applied a dose of {sup 131} I that was accumulated in the thyroid gland is determined. The absorbed dose was obtained by means of Monte Carlo calculations developing a detailed three-dimensional model of the pregnant one, where they have been included most of the organs. The absorbed dose also was calculated by means of a simple procedure. To verify the calculated results it was carried out an experiment where was constructed a phantom of the neck, in this was included the thyroid with {sup 131} I and the exposure was measured at different distances of the neck; this was related with the dose. Of the Monte Carlo calculation is obtained that for each mCi of {sup 131} I that is retained in the mother's thyroid, the uterus absorbs a dose of 6.80 E(-11) Gy. When comparing the results, it was found that the simple calculation throws a result 29 times superior to that of the dose obtained by means of Monte Carlo. When applying a correction for the effect of the absorption of the gamma photons by the mother's body an absorbed dose in the uterus was obtained that is 0.16 times superior to the Monte Carlo calculation. Of the experimental phase it is verified that the values calculated by means of the simple method are equal to those experimentally measured. (Author)

    In Mexico the use of electron accelerators for treating cancerous tumors had grown enormously in the last decade. When the treatments are carried out with X-ray beam energy below 10 MV the design of the shielding of the radioactive facility is determined by analyzing the interaction of X-rays, which have a direct impact and dispersion, with materials of the facility. However, when it makes use of X-ray beam energy equal to or greater than 10 MV the neutrons presence is imminent due to their generation by the interaction of the primary beam X-ray with materials head of the accelerator and of the table of treatment, mainly. In these cases, the design and calculation of shielding considers the generation of high-energy neutrons which contribute the equivalent dose that public and occupationally staff exposed (POE) will receive in the areas surrounding the facility radioactive. However, very few measurements have been performed to determine the actual contribution to the neutron dose equivalent received by POE and public during working hours. This paper presents and estimate of the actual contribution of the neutron dose equivalent received by public and POE facilities in various radioactive medical use, considering many factors. To this end, measurements were made of the equivalent dose by using a neutron monitor in areas surrounding different radioactive installations (of Mexico) which used electron accelerators medical use during treatment with X-ray beam energy equal to or greater than 10 MV. The results are presented after a statistical analysis of a wide range of measures in order to estimate more reliability real contribution of the neutron dose equivalent for POE and the public.

The measurements of the absorbed dose rate in air due to the environmental gamma radiation in the main stations of the Net are obtained in real time and the CPHR receives the data coming from these posts at one time relatively short. To improve the operability of the RNVRA it was necessary to complete the facilities of existent monitoring using 4 automatic measurement stations with probes of gamma detection, implementing in this way a measurement system on real time. On the other hand the software were developed: GenironProbeFech, to obtain the data of the probes, DataMail for the shipment of the same ones by electronic mail and GammaRed that receives and processes the data in the rector center.

    Radio-immunotherapy with anti-CD20 antibodies significantly increases the rate of remission in patients with CD20 over expressing B-cell lymphomas. Radio-labeled antibodies directed to surface antigens allow delivering scaled doses of radiation to specific targets thus limiting the dose to healthy tissue. Anti-CD20 causes cell death by two major pathways; activating the immune system to destroy malignant cells and inducing the activation of cell death pathways. The {sup 177}Lu is a beta particle emitter (max. 0.497 MeV) with a maximum soft tissue reach of 0.7 mm and a half-life of 6.7 days. Several clinical studies have established a maximum tolerated dose (45m Ci/m{sup 2}) for {sup 177}Lu-DOTA-rituximab, which shows a favorable clinical response without hematological toxicity. However, the molecular mechanisms of synergistic activation of anti-CD20 and radionuclide have not been studied. In this work we evaluated by flow cytometry, the activation kinetics of the cell death mechanisms induced by the treatment with {sup 177}Lu-DOTA-anti-CD20 from non-Hod king lymphoma cells (Raji). The absorbed radiation dose delivered to the cell nucleus was calculated by Monte Carlo simulation, considering the contribution of the beta emissions of the radiopharmaceutical present in the cell membrane and surrounding environment, as well as crossfire. This work shows that the application of radiation doses of 1 to 5 Gy of the radiopharmaceutical {sup 177}Lu-DOTA-anti-CD20 are sufficient to induce cell death by apoptosis and arrest of the cell cycle. The combination of these factors (continuous delivery of radiation activation of repair mechanisms and increased radio-sensitivity) causes acute activation of the apoptotic program resulting in significant cell death after 96 h of treatment. The temporal analysis of cell death suggests the early activation of apoptosis that is counteracted by the activation of repair processes caused by sustained irradiation, which leads to cell arrest and increases cytotoxicity, thus favoring the sudden activation of apoptosis after several days of treatment.

    Applicators are guides that circulate and are located within the patient brachytherapy sources. Applicators can suffer mechanical deformations due to processes of sterilization or shock, which may result in that the source do not place within these very precise and coincides with the planned. In these cases the planned treatment deviate actually managed. The object of this study is to verify that the position of the source into the dispenser coincides with the planned position, with a procedure that is described. (Author)

    In the present thesis, the software DERA (Dispersion of Radioactive Effluents into the Atmosphere) was developed in order to calculate the equivalent dose, external and internal, associated with the release of radioactive effluents into the atmosphere from a nuclear facility. The software describes such emissions in normal operation, and not considering the exceptional situations such as accidents. Several tools were integrated for describing the dispersion of radioactive effluents using site meteorological information (average speed and wind direction and the stability profile). Starting with the calculation of the concentration of the effluent as a function of position, DERA estimates equivalent doses using a set of EPA s and ICRP s coefficients. The software contains a module that integrates a database with these coefficients for a set of 825 different radioisotopes and uses the Gaussian method to calculate the effluents dispersion. This work analyzes how adequate is the Gaussian model to describe emissions type -puff-. Chapter 4 concludes, on the basis of a comparison of the recommended correlations of emissions type -puff-, that under certain conditions (in particular with intermittent emissions) it is possible to perform an adequate description using the Gaussian model. The dispersion coefficients (σ{sub y} and σ{sub z}), that using the Gaussian model, were obtained from different correlations given in the literature. Also in Chapter 5 is presented the construction of a particular correlation using Lagrange polynomials, which takes information from the Pasquill-Gifford-Turner curves (PGT). This work also contains a state of the art about the coefficients that relate the concentration with the equivalent dose. This topic is discussed in Chapter 6, including a brief description of the biological-compartmental models developed by the ICRP. The software s development was performed using the programming language Python 2.7, for the Windows operating system (the XP version or later). And several tools were integrated using the Tk inter library and graphics using Matplotlib. DERA generates files with .xls extension, an each file contains data tabulated as a function of distance for scattering coefficients and concentration and dose equivalent, both external and internal. It also contains a module to represent iso curves using the mapping tool Google Earth, using files with kml extension, generated with Python. A module that allows the coupling between the data from the meteorological tower and emission registration system was also developed. Such coupling is carried out through a system of folders and files, where emission times are specified, in order to calculate both, external and internal, annual equivalent dose. The 5 modules of the software and the technical description of development is presented in Chapter 7. It is included a methodology for verification and validation of the developed software. In the case of verification, a set of problems proposed in the literature was computed, and was verified the correct integration of the set of coefficients proposed by the EPA and the ICRP. With respect to validation, a graphical analysis between the interpolation developed, and PGT curves was performed. These topics are described in detail in Chapter 8. Finally this work is presented in such a way that serves to guide to the incipient effort to develop computational and portable tools, serving as a prelude to the future integration of more advanced methods of dispersion, or updating the set of coefficients proposed by the ICRP and EPA.
