    Pelvic organ prolapse (POP) is a global health problem that may seriously impact the quality of life of the sufferer. The present study aimed to investigate the potential mechanisms underlying alterations in extracellular matrix (ECM) metabolism in the pathogenesis of POP, by investigating the expression of ECM components in human parametrial ligament fibroblasts (hPLFs) subject to various mechanical strain loads. Fibroblasts derived from parametrial ligaments were cultured from patients with POP and without malignant tumors, who underwent vaginal hysterectomy surgery. Fibroblasts at generations 3‑6 of exponential phase cells were selected, and a four‑point bending device was used for 0, 1,333 or 5,333 µ mechanical loading of cells at 0.5 Hz for 4 h. mRNA and protein expression levels of collagen type I α 1 chain (COL1A1), collagen type III α 1 chain (COL3A1), elastin, matrix metalloproteinase (MMP) ‑2 and ‑9, and transforming growth factor (TGF)‑β1 were detected by reverse transcription‑quantitative polymerase chain reaction and western blotting, respectively. Under increased mechanical strain (5,333 µ), mRNA and protein expression levels of COL1A1, COL3A1 elastin and TGF‑β1 decreased, particularly COL1A1; however, mRNA and protein expression levels of MMP‑2 and ‑9 were significantly increased, compared with the control group (0 µ strain). Following 1,333 µ mechanical strain, mRNA and protein expression levels of COL1A1, COL3A1 elastin and MMP‑2 increased, and MMP‑9 decreased, whereas no significant differences were observed in TGF‑β1 mRNA and protein expression levels. In conclusion, ECM alterations may be involved in pathogenesis of POP, with decreased synthesis and increased degradation of collagen and elastin. Furthermore, the TGF‑β1 signaling pathway may serve an important role in this process and thus may supply a new target and strategy for understanding the etiology and therapy of POP.

    Purpose: To investigate the impact of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)-morphologic differences in parametrial infiltration on tumour response during primary radio chemotherapy in cervical cancer. Material and methods: Eighty-five consecutive cervical cancer patients with FIGO stages IIB (n = 59) and IIIB (n = 26), treated by external beam radiotherapy ({+-}chemotherapy) and image-guided adaptive brachytherapy, underwent T2-weighted MRI at the time of diagnosis and at the time of brachytherapy. MRI patterns of parametrial tumour infiltration at the time of diagnosis were assessed with regard to predominant morphology and maximum extent of parametrial tumour infiltration and were stratified into five tumour groups (TG): 1) expansive with spiculae; 2) expansive with spiculae and infiltrating parts; 3) infiltrative into the inner third of the parametrial space (PM); 4) infiltrative into the middle third of the PM; and 5) infiltrative into the outer third of the PM. MRI at the time of brachytherapy was used for identifying presence (residual vs. no residual disease) and signal intensity (high vs. intermediate) of residual disease within the PM. Left and right PM of each patient were evaluated separately at both time points. The impact of the TG on tumour remission status within the PM was analysed using {chi}2-test and logistic regression analysis. Results: In total, 170 PM were analysed. The TG 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 were present in 12%, 11%, 35%, 25% and 12% of the cases, respectively. Five percent of the PM were tumour-free. Residual tumour in the PM was identified in 19%, 68%, 88%, 90% and 85% of the PM for the TG 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5, respectively. The TG 3 - 5 had significantly higher rates of residual tumour in the PM in comparison to TG 1 + 2 (88% vs. 43%, p < 0.01). Conclusion: MRI-morphologic features of PM infiltration appear to allow for prediction of tumour response during external beam radiotherapy and chemotherapy. A predominantly infiltrative tumour spread at the

    Full Text Available BOM-cisplatin regimen for chemotherapy for cervical cancer patients has not resulted high efficacy, hence a replacement of cisplatin with carboplatin is proposed. BOM-carboplatin chemotherapy is at present a treatment for cervical cancer patients in Sanglah Hospital in Denpasar. Information about the efficacy of using the BOM-carboplatin for cervical cancer chemotherapy is not provided, therefore this research performed by observing tumor mass and parametrial infiltration. This research was carried out using case study method on 9 patients with squamous cell cervical cancer stage IIB–IIIB before and after BOM-carboplatin chemotherapy at Sanglah Hospital from February until August 2015. Examination of tumor mass and parametrial infiltration (%CFS conducted prior to chemotherapy series I and after chemotherapy series III. Sampling was done consecutively. The research data were analyzed using the normal distribution Shapiro-Wilk test continued by paired t-test with 95% confidence level, while data that is classified otherwise is transformed to logarithmic function and were analyzed using the Wilcoxon test. Based on statistical analysis there is significant reduction in tumor mass and left parametrial infiltration after the third chemotherapy with (p0.05 that is p>0,083.

    To investigate the value of diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI) in evaluating parametrial invasion (PMI) in stage IA2-IIA cervical cancer. A total of 117 patients with stage IA2-IIA cervical cancer who underwent preoperative MRI and radical hysterectomy were included in this study. Preoperative clinical variables and MRI variables were analysed and compared between the groups with and without pathologically proven PMI. All variables except age were significantly different between patients with and without pathologic PMI (P < 0.05). All variables except squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) antigen were also significantly correlated with pathologic PMI on univariate analysis (P < 0.05). Multivariate analysis indicated that PMI on MRI (P < 0.001) and tumour apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) (P = 0.029) were independent predictors of pathologic PMI. Area under the curve of PMI on MRI increased significantly from 0.793 to 0.872 when combined with tumour ADC (P = 0.002). When PMI on MRI was further stratified by tumour ADC, the false negative rate was 2.0 % (1/49). In stage IA2-IIA cervical cancer, tumour ADC and PMI on MRI seem to be independent predictors of pathologic PMI. Combining the two predictors improved the diagnostic performance of identifying patients at low risk of pathologic PMI. (orig.)

    To analyze prognostic factors for locoregional recurrence (LRR), distant metastasis (DM), and overall survival (OS) in cervical cancer patients who underwent radical hysterectomy followed by postoperative radiotherapy (PORT) in a single institute. Clinicopathologic data of 135 patients with clinical stage IA2 to IIA2 cervical cancer treated with PORT from 2001 to 2012 were reviewed, retrospectively. Postoperative parametrial resection margin (PRM) and vaginal resection margin (VRM) were investigated separately. The median treatment dosage of external beam radiotherapy (EBRT) to the whole pelvis was 50.4 Gy in 1.8 Gy/fraction. High-dose-rate vaginal brachytherapy after EBRT was given to patients with positive or close VRMs. Concurrent platinum-based chemoradiotherapy (CCRT) was administered to 73 patients with positive resection margin, lymph node (LN) metastasis, or direct extension of parametrium. Kaplan-Meier method and log-rank test were used for analyzing LRR, DM, and OS; Cox regression was applied to analyze prognostic factors. The 5-year disease-free survival was 79% and 5-year OS was 91%. In univariate analysis, positive or close PRM, LN metastasis, direct extension of parametrium, lymphovascular invasion, histology of adenocarcinoma, and chemotherapy were related with more DM and poor OS. In multivariate analysis, PRM and LN metastasis remained independent prognostic factors for OS. PORT after radical hysterectomy in uterine cervical cancer showed excellent OS in this study. Positive or close PRM after radical hysterectomy in uterine cervical cancer correlates with poor prognosis even with CCRT. Therefore, additional treatments to improve local control such as radiation boosting need to be considered.

    Determining the risk factors associated with parametrial involvement (PMI) is of paramount importance to decrease the multimodality treatment in early-stage cervical cancer. We investigated the preoperatively assessable clinical and pathological risk factors associated with PMI in surgically treated stage IB1-IIA2 cervical cancer. A retrospective cohort study of women underwent Querleu-Morrow type C hysterectomy for cervical cancer stage IB1-IIA2 from 2001 to 2015. All patients underwent clinical staging examination under anesthesia by the same gynecological oncologists during the study period. Evaluated variables were age, menopausal status, body mass index, smoking status, FIGO (International Federation of Obstetrics and Gynecology) stage, clinically measured maximal tumor diameter, clinical presentation (exophytic or endophytic tumor), histological type, tumor grade, lymphovascular space invasion, clinical and pathological vaginal invasion, and uterine body involvement. Endophytic clinical presentation was defined for ulcerative tumors and barrel-shaped morphology. Two-dimensional transvaginal ultrasonography was used to measure tumor dimensions. Of 127 eligible women, 37 (29.1%) had PMI. On univariate analysis, endophytic clinical presentation (P = 0.01), larger tumor size (P PMI. In multivariate analysis endophytic clinical presentation (odds ratio, 11.34; 95% confidence interval, 1.34-95.85; P = 0.02) and larger tumor size (odds ratio, 32.31; 95% confidence interval, 2.46-423.83; P = 0.008) were the independent risk factors for PMI. Threshold of 31 mm in tumor size predicted PMI with 71% sensitivity and 75% specificity. We identified 18 patients with tumor size of more than 30 mm and endophytic presentation; 14 (77.7%) of these had PMI. Endophytic clinical presentation and larger clinical tumor size (>3 cm) are independent risk factors for PMI in stage IB-IIA cervical cancer. Approximately 78% of the patients with a tumor size of more than 3 cm and endophytic

    To review the diagnostic performance of MRI for detection of parametrial invasion (PMI) in cervical cancer patients. MEDLINE and EMBASE databases were searched for studies providing diagnostic performance of MRI for detecting PMI in patients with cervical cancer. Studies published between 2012 and 2016 using surgico-pathological results as reference standard were included. Study quality was evaluated using QUADAS-2. Sensitivity and specificity of all studies were calculated. Results were pooled and plotted in a hierarchical summary receiver operating characteristic plot. Meta-regression and subgroup analyses were performed. Fourteen studies (1,028 patients) were included. Study quality was generally moderate. Pooled sensitivity was 0.76 (95% CI 0.67-0.84) and specificity was 0.94 (95% CI 0.91-0.95). The possibility of heterogeneity was considered low: Cochran's Q-test (p = 0.471), Tau{sup 2} (0.240), Higgins I{sup 2} (0%). With meta-regression analysis, magnet strength, use of DWI, and antispasmodic drugs were significant factors affecting heterogeneity (p < 0.01).

    To review the diagnostic performance of MRI for detection of parametrial invasion (PMI) in cervical cancer patients. MEDLINE and EMBASE databases were searched for studies providing diagnostic performance of MRI for detecting PMI in patients with cervical cancer. Studies published between 2012 and 2016 using surgico-pathological results as reference standard were included. Study quality was evaluated using QUADAS-2. Sensitivity and specificity of all studies were calculated. Results were pooled and plotted in a hierarchical summary receiver operating characteristic plot. Meta-regression and subgroup analyses were performed. Fourteen studies (1,028 patients) were included. Study quality was generally moderate. Pooled sensitivity was 0.76 (95% CI 0.67-0.84) and specificity was 0.94 (95% CI 0.91-0.95). The possibility of heterogeneity was considered low: Cochran's Q-test (p = 0.471), Tau 2 (0.240), Higgins I 2 (0%). With meta-regression analysis, magnet strength, use of DWI, and antispasmodic drugs were significant factors affecting heterogeneity (p < 0.01). Subgroup analysis for studies solely using radical hysterectomy as reference standard yielded pooled sensitivity and specificity of 0.73 (95% CI 0.60-0.83) and 0.93 (95% CI 0.90-0.95), respectively.

    To evaluate the value of apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) for determining parametrial invasion (PMI) in cervical cancer, by stratifying them into subgroups based on a Likert scale using T2-weighted imaging (T2WI). This retrospective study included 87 patients with FIGO stage IA2-IIB cervical cancer who underwent preoperative MRI followed by radical hysterectomy. Radiological PMI was assessed on T2WI using a six-point Likert scale and ADC values of the tumors were measured. MRI findings were compared between patients with and without PMI. Differences in ADC according to the Likert scale were also assessed. 19 (21.8%) patients had pathological PMI. The prevalence of PMI was significantly associated with Likert scale (P PMI had significantly lower ADC values than those without PMI (P = 0.034). However, no significant difference was seen between patients with and without PMI within each Likert score group (P = 0.180-0.857). T2WI-based Likert score for radiological PMI and ADC values of the tumor were significantly associated with pathological PMI. However, the apparent association seen between ADC values and PMI may be due to contribution of high ADC values of MRI-invisible tumors rather than reflecting their relationship.

    The purpose of this study is to elucidate the usefulness of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and positron emission tomography (PET) for the detection of parametrial involvement and lymph node metastasis in patients with cervical cancer. Thirty-six patients with cervical cancer were retrospectively enrolled. MRI and PET scans were performed for all patients within a week before radical surgery. The criterion for malignancy on MRI was >1 cm short axis diameter of the suspected lymph node. On PET, only fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) uptake was significantly higher than the background and, if this FDG uptake showed on at least two consecutive axial slices, then the lesion was considered as a malignancy. We compared the extent of tumor on the surgical findings with the International Federation of Gynecology and Obstetrics (FIGO) staging, MRI and PET scans. The accuracy of FIGO and MRI staging was 67 and 84.4%, respectively. The accuracy for detecting pelvic lymph node metastasis was better for PET than for MRI (78 versus 67%, respectively). All FDG uptake lymph nodes were confirmed as metastatic lymph nodes by pathological evaluation; this included five lymph nodes <1 cm in diameter. MRI provides an improved evaluation of local tumor extension, but PET is more useful for the evaluation of pelvic lymph nodes than MRI; however, PET still misses microscopic disease. Further studies are necessary to evaluate the usefulness of PET/computed tomography (CT) for the accuracy of the disease extension and the cost-effectiveness of MRI, PET or PET/CT in patients with cervical cancer.

    Parametrial involvement (PMI) is one of the most important factors influencing prognosis in locally advanced stage cervical cancer (LACC) patients. We aimed to evaluate PMI rate among LACC patients undergoing neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NACT), thus evaluating the utility of parametrectomy in tailor adjuvant treatments. Retrospective evaluation of consecutive 275 patients affected by LACC (IB2-IIB), undergoing NACT followed by type C/class III radical hysterectomy. Basic descriptive statistics, univariate and multivariate analyses were applied in order to identify factors predicting PMI. Survival outcomes were assessed using Kaplan-Meier and Cox models. PMI was detected in 37 (13%) patients: it was associated with vaginal involvement, lymph node positivity and both in 10 (4%), 5 (2%) and 12 (4%) patients, respectively; while PMI alone was observed in only 10 (4%) patients. Among this latter group, adjuvant treatment was delivered in 3 (1%) patients on the basis of pure PMI; while the remaining patients had other characteristics driving adjuvant treatment. Considering factors predicting PMI we observed that only suboptimal pathological responses (OR: 1.11; 95% CI: 1.01, 1.22) and vaginal involvement (OR: 1.29 (95%) CI: 1.17, 1.44) were independently associated with PMI. PMI did not correlate with survival (HR: 2.0; 95% CI: 0.82, 4.89); while clinical response to NACT (HR: 3.35; 95% CI: 1.59, 7.04), vaginal involvement (HR: 2.38; 95% CI: 1.12, 5.02) and lymph nodes positivity (HR: 3.47; 95% CI: 1.62, 7.41), independently correlated with worse survival outcomes. Our data suggest that PMI had a limited role on the choice to administer adjuvant treatment, thus supporting the potential embrace of less radical surgery in LACC patients undergoing NACT. Further prospective studies are warranted. Copyright © 2015 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.

    cerebrale, retro-orbitaria e splancnica (splenoportale, mesenterica e renale) nei pazienti derodermici. Materiale e metodi. Il gruppo di studio (GS) e composto da 50 pazienti affetti da sclerodermia con anamnesi negativa per malattie cerebrovascolari, epatopatie, nefropatie e oftalmopatie. In tutti i pazienti e stata studiata la vasodilatazione endotelio-mediata dell'arteria brachiale tramite la misurazione del diametro trasverso con sonda ad alta risoluzione; sono stati anche misurati l'indice di resistenza (IR) delle arterie cerebrale media, centroretinica, epatica propria, mesenterica superiore e renali, in condizioni basali e dopo tre giorni di terapia. AI fine di valutare la variabilita intra-osservatore delle misurazioni, e stato reclutato un gruppo di controllo (GC) composto da 10 volontari sani che sono stati studiati con il medesimo protocollo Doppler e rivalutati a distanza di tre giorni senza ricevere alcuna terapia. Risultati. Il GS ha dimostrato un significativo incremento della dilatazione endotelio-mediata dell'arteria brachiale, del diametro e della velocita media di flusso portale, dell'IP dell'arteria splenica all'ilo (pre-Prostavasin vs post-Prostavasin, p < 0,001). AI contrario il GC non ha mostrato significative variazioni dei parametri considerati. Gli IR delle arterie cerebrale media, centroretinica, renale, epatica propria e mesenterica superiore si sono ridotti dopo terapia nella maggioranza dei pazienti del GS pur non risultando statisticamente significativi. Conclusioni. Nel campione esaminato il Prostavasin ha dimostrato una potente azione vasodilatatoria prevalentemente a livello periferico ed ha incrementato la velocita media di flusso portale ed il diametro della vena porta, ma anche l'IP dell'arteria splenica all'ilo, non supportando l'ipotesi formulata da altri autori di una sua azione mirata e specifica sulle resistenze intraepatiche.

    Purpose: To assess disease response along the parametrial space according to tumor morphology in patients with International Federation of Gynecology and Obstetrics (FIGO) stage IIB and IIIB cervical cancer at the time of image-guided adaptive brachytherapy. Methods and Materials: Patients with FIGO stage IIB and IIIB cervical cancer registered as of November 2013 in the EMBRACE study were evaluated. Tumors were stratified according to morphologic subtype on magnetic resonance imaging (expansive and infiltrative), and the characteristics of those subtypes were analyzed. Parametrial involvement at diagnosis and at brachytherapy was evaluated, and the response to chemo-radiotherapy was classified as good, moderate, or poor. The response grade was compared between the 2 groups and analyzed with regard to tumor volumes, and dosimetric parameters. Results: A total of 452 patients were evaluated, of whom 186 had expansive growth type and 266 had infiltrative morphology. Patients with infiltrative tumors had more extensive disease, as indicated by a higher rate of FIGO stage IIIB disease, as well as radiologic evidence of extension into the distal parametrial space and to the pelvic side wall on magnetic resonance imaging. Cervical necrosis was more common in the infiltrative group. Good response was more common in the expansive group (34% vs 24%; P=.02), and poor response was more common in the infiltrative group (11% and 19%; P=.02). Mean gross tumor volume at diagnosis was equal in both groups (51.7 cm{sup 3}). The high-risk clinical target volume was larger in infiltrative tumors (37.9 cm{sup 3} vs 33.3 cm{sup 3}, P=.005). The mean high-risk clinical target volume D{sub 90} was slightly higher in expansive tumors (92.7 Gy and 89.4 Gy, P<.001). Conclusion: Infiltrative tumors are more advanced at presentation and respond less favorably to chemo-radiotherapy when compared with expansive tumors that are more or less equivalent in size.

    destinados al reactor de alta temperatura refrigerado por gas de la Brown-Boveri/Krupp Reaktorbau GmbH, se investigaron y desarrollaron dos conceptos de elemento combustible. El elemento consiste en ambos casos en una esfera de grafito de 6 cm de diametro que encierra una pastilla cilindrica de combustible de unos 20 mm de diametro y 16 mm de altura. La diferencia entre ambos conceptos estriba en el tipo de combustible y en la forma de preparar las esferas de grafito. En el primero, el combustible se prepara mezclando U{sub 3}O{sub 8} y grafito, prensando esta mezcla en pastillas y haciendo que ambos componentes reaccionen en un horno al vacio a 1800{sup o}C. La razon atomica U : C es 1:45. Como este tipo de pastilla combustible no retiene cuantitativamente los productos de fision, fue necesario impregnar la esfera de grafito para hacerla impermeable y mejorar su poder de retencion. De este modo, se lograron permeabilidades del orden de 10{sup -6}cm{sup 2}/s . Con arreglo al segundo concepto, el combustible consiste en una solucion solida de UC en ZrC recubierta de una capa de ZrC. La razon molar UC : ZrC asciende a 1 : 20. La pastilla combustible se preparo del modo siguiente: se mezclaron UO{sub 2}, ZrO{sub 2} y grafito y se prensaron en pastillas que se hicieron reaccionar para obtener los carburos, que a su vez se trituraron en un molino de bolas, para volver a prensarse a 2000{sup o}C. De este modo, se alcanzaron densidades superiores al 95% del valor teorico. La memoria describe en detalle la preparacion y algunas de las propiedades fisicas de las pastillas combustibles. Se espera que este tipo de combustible retenga suficientemente los gases de fision y permita el empleo de esferas de grafito no impregnadas. La memoria examina tambien otras ventajas de esos combustibles.

    This work illustrates the possibility to interpolate the measured concentrations of CO, NO, NO{sub 2}, O{sub 3}, SO{sub 2} during one year (1995) at the 13 stations of the air quality monitoring station network of the Provinces of Como and Lecco (Italy) by means of a log-normal distribution. Particular attention was given in choosing the method for the determination of the log-normal distribution parameters among four possible methods: I natural, II percentiles, III moments, IV maximum likelihood. In order to evaluate the goodness of fit a ranking procedure was carried out over the values of four indices: absolute deviation, weighted absolute deviation, Kolmogorov-Smirnov index and Cramer-von Mises-Smirnov index. The capability of the log-normal distribution to fit the measured data is then discussed as a function of the pollutant and of the monitoring station. Finally an example of application is given: the effect of an emission reduction strategy in Lombardy Region (the so called `bollino blu`) is evaluated using a log-normal distribution. [Italiano] In questo lavoro si discute la possibilita` di interpolare le concentrazioni misurate di CO, NO, NO{sub 2}, O{sub 3}, SO{sub 2} durante un anno solare (il 1995) nelle 13 stazioni della Rete di Rilevamento della qualita` dell`aria delle Provincie di Como e di Lecco mediante una funzione log-normale. In particolare si discute quale metodo e` meglio usare per l`individuazione dei 2 parametri caratteristici della log-normale, tra 4 teoreticamente possibili: I naturale, II dei percentili, III dei momenti, IV della massima verosimiglianza. Per valutare i risultati ottenuti si usano: la deviazione assoluta, la deviazione pesata, il parametro di Kolmogorov-Smirnov e quello di Cramer-von Mises-Smirnov effettuando un ranking tra i metodi in funzione degli inquinanti e della stazione di misura. Ancora in funzione degli inquinanti e delle diverse stazioni di misura si discute poi la capacita` della funzione log-normale di

    particolare essa puo' integrare la mammografia nei casi di dubbia interpretazione. Tuttavia a differenza dei traccianti con spiccato oncotropismo ({sup 201}Tallio, {sup 99m}Tc-MIBI, {sup 99m}Tc-tetrofosmina, {sup 111}In-pentetreotide, estrogeni radiomarcati), il MDP non sembra possa fornire addizionali informazioni prognostiche. Nel presente lavoro abbiamo voluto saggiare tale aspetto confrontando i dati scintigrafici con fattori istologici e molecolari di significato prognostico. In una serie di 44 carcinomi primitivi della mammella si sono confrontate statisticamente l'entita' della captazione radionuclidica da parte del tumore, espressa dal rapporto tumore/fondo (indice T/F), con istotipo, diametro, grado istologico e concentrazioni tissutali dei recettori per gli ormoni steroidi, catepsina D, timidina kinasi 1, oncoproteine pS2 e p53. Mentre la scintigrafia mammaria con MDP presenta buona accuratezza diagnostica, il suo contributo prognostico appare invece del tutto trascurabile in confronto alle indagini con traccianti oncotropi, in grado di fornire informazioni su cellularita', funzionalita' recettoriali, espressione di glicoproteina P e stato linfonodale. La cinetica tumorale del radiofosfonato, non ancora del tutto chiarita, risulta infatti dipendere soprattutto da fattori extra-cellulari come l'aumentata permeabilita' dei vasi tumorali e l'espansione dello spazio interstiziale. Nel presente lavoro si e' voluto verificare tali presupposti teorici ricercando eventuali relazioni tra grado di accumulo MDP nel carcinoma mammario e marcatori prognostici, aspetti scarsamente rappresentati in letteratura. La mancata dimostrazione di relazioni significative tra i valori dell'indice T/F e tali parametri conferma lo scarso ruolo prognostico della SM con MDP. In particolare mentre la sensibilita' dell'esame risulta fortemente condizionata dal diametro del carcinoma mammario, l'entita' di accumulo del

    los rayos alfa para llevar a cabo mediciones industriales del peso por unidad de superficie de materiales de espesor reducido. El aprovechamiento industrial de estas tecnicas pudo desarrollarse gracias al perfeccionamiento de nuevos aparatos que, si bien aplican tecnicas tradicionales, fueron especialmente disenados para el empleo de rayos alfa. Para compensar las variaciones de la capacidad de absorcion en el intervalo que media entre la fuente y el detector, es indispensable emplear un metodo diferencial de dos recorridos. La alimentacion de las camaras de ionizacion con corriente alterna permite utilizar circuitos de amplificacion y de deteccion alternos sin necesidad de transformar previamente la corriente de ionizacion. El intervalo de medicion abarca de 6 a 55 gramos por metro cuadrado, con una aproximacion del 1 por ciento en condiciones de perfecta estabilidad. Los autores describen el dispositivo completo utilizado para efectuar mediciones continuas en las maquinas industriales. La tecnica descrita puede adaptarse igualmente a los rayos beta.

La seccion de anticoincidencia esta separada del contador central por una delgada hoja de Hostaphan aluminizada. En el trabajo figura una serie de detalles constructivos. El gas que llena el contador consiste en una mezcla de etileno a 30 mm, de argon a 40 mm y la muestra de hidrogeno hasta 700 mm. Un circuito de extincion externo, cuyo tiempo muerto es de 7 ms, elimina eficazmente todos los impulsos demorados. Con un blindaje de hierro de 30 cm, el indice de recuento del contador central con hidrogeno gaseoso inerte es de 350 impulsos/min cuando el circuito de anticoincidencia no funciona y de unos 3 impulsos/min en el caso contrario.

    La guida di un autoveicolo, specie in condizioni di intenso traffico o di cattive condizioni meteoclimatiche, è considerata uno dei principali fattori stressanti della vita odierna. Durante la guida si possono infatti osservare significative risposte simpatoadrenergiche e cardiovascolari con la comparsa anche di episodi coronarici. Tali risposte presentano un’ampia variabilità interindividuale in quanto sono influenzate da vari fattori (stile di vita, personalità etc..

    In questa rassegna, vengono presentati i principali risultati degli studi da noi condotti sulle risposte psicofisiologiche indotte dalla guida di diversi tipi di autoveicoli. In conducenti di autobus urbani è stato registrato un sensibile aumento del tasso urinario di adrenalina durante il turno lavorativo rispetto alla stessa fascia oraria di un giorno di riposo. Tale risposta adrenergica era esaltata dall’abitudine tabagica e dall’assunzione di caffè e bevande alcoliche. In soggetti che alla guida di camion coprono lunghe distanze, i più elevati tassi urinari di catecolamine e i più alti livelli di frequenza cardiaca sono stati registrati quando la guida era particolarmente stressante per la presenza di nebbia o di intenso traffico. In soggetti che partecipano, a livello amatoriale, a manifestazioni agonistiche di velocità su pista, abbiamo osservato che durante la gara, rispetto al periodo pre-gara, l’escrezione urinaria di catecolamine aumenta in misura molto rilevante. Analogamente a quanto osservato in autisti di camion, l’attivazione del sistema adrenergico è risultata direttamente associata ai livelli di ansietà. Dall’elettrocardiogramma dinamico è emerso che durante la gara la frequenza cardiaca raggiunge un valore medio di 163.5±7.4 battiti/min. (range: 146,180 battiti/min..

    Un significativo peggioramento della percezione visiva stereoscopica, con potenziale ricaduta negativa sulla performance dei guidatori, è stato osservato in studenti universitari esposti per 5 ore al complesso dei fattori stressanti propri dell’ambiente della discoteca. In un recente studio condotto su autisti di autocarri abbiamo altresì osservato, al termine del turno di guida, un rilevante incremento del trombossano urinario che potrebbe rappresentare un marcatore di rischio cardiovascolare.

    autores explican como han adaptado la clave AX-I para calculos neutronico-hidro-dinamicos al caso de un gas que se ajusta a la ecuacion de Van der Waals. Otra modificacion importante introducida en la ecuacion de estado utilizada en la clave, consiste en emplear una ecuacion del tipo de Mie-Gruneisen, derivada de la teoria del estado solido. Esta modificacion permite evaluar de manera mas satisfactoria del termino de presion para el caso de cuerpos de composicion variable. Dado que en un conjunto de potencia cero las placas de uranio fuertemente enriquecido en el isotopo-235, se calentaran con mas rapidez que las de uranio empobrecido, la posibilidad de que se produzca un efecto Doppler positivo neto es mucho mayor en un conjunto experimental que en el reactor de potencia reproductor equivalente. Se ha estudiado este peligro en el caso de diferentes conjuntos posibles. Los calculos indican que en un conjunto de potencia cero el coeficiente Doppler solo alcanza un valor peligroso en los sistemas que poseen un espectro de energias neutronicas muy blando, caracteristico de los grandes reactores de potencia reproductores, alimentados con oxido de uranio.

Como la radiactividad especifica del agua procedente de los pozos mas alejados parecia ser relativamente baja, debido en parte a la dilucion del agua tritiada por el agua presente en la formacion geologica, se aplicaron metodos de enriquecimiento con miras a aumentar la sensibilidad del recuento.

    . Estos rayos gamma son dispersados en hierro imantado por efecto Compton e identificados en un contador de centelleo de Nal(Tl). La asimetria de .la seccion eficaz de dispersion con respecto a la direccion de magnetizacion esta relacionada con la magnitud original de la polarizacion de los positrones. El segundo metodo consistio en dirigir los positrones sobre una lamina de hierro imantada. La seccion eficaz de dispersion positron-electron, o de Bhabha, depende del sentido de la magnetizacion de la lamina de hierro con respecto a la polarizacion de los positrones. Los electrones y positrones dispersos fueron detectados en contadores de centelleo, de material plastico, conectados a un circuito de coincidencias rapidas. En ambos metodos las asimetrias previstas son pequenas, lo cual exige periodos largos de recuento. Los experimentos han demostrado que los positrones de 1 MeV procedentes de {sup 14}O tienen polarizacion dextrogira. El metodo de aniquilacion dio un valor (0,73 {+-} 0,17) v/c; el metodo de dispersion de Bhabha dio (0,97 {+-} 0,19) v/c. La teoria mas simple predice un valor de 1,00 v/c. Se supone que el metodo de dispersion de Bhabha es el que da mejores resultados, sobre todo porque la relacion entre la asimetria y la polarizacion es mas facil de calcular.

    The objective of nuclear reactor kinetics study is to analyze the stability of reactor operation in practice. The obtained parameters should define the needed properties of automatic control system relevant for the stability of the designed reactor system. Refining the analytical models is done by using the analysis and interpretation of experimental data. Results of measured the reactor response obtained by using the reactor oscillator ROB-1 are explained by using the space independent model of the zero power reactor, by power reactor model with one feedback circuit, and by a complex model. It was assumed that the perturbations of the system are small and that linearized kinetic equations could be used. Linearized kinetic equation of the reactor system are transformed into the frequency region in order to analyze the measured values directly. The objective of this paper is to measure the RA reactor kinetics parameters, and analyze the stability of reactor operation at power levels high than nominal. Istrazivanja u oblasti kinetike nuklearnih reaktora imaju za cilj da dovedu analizu stabilnosti rada reaktora na nivo 'radne tehnologije'.

Une etude analogue a ete faite en utilisant le radioisotope 32 du phosphore. (author) [Spanish] Determinados elementos, como por ejemplo el arsenico, se emplean corrientemente en el laboratorio para fomentar la penetracion del hidrogeno en el hierro. Por otra parte, se ha comprobado en la industria que la presencia de acido sulfhidrico intensifica la corrosion de los aceros por el hidrogeno. Cabia preguntarse si estas sustancias, que hasta ahora se consideraban como catalizadores, solo fomentan la absorcion del hidrogeno, o si ejercen una influencia directa sobre el metal. Los autores han estudiado este fenomeno en su laboratorio con ayuda de hierro electrolitico puro. Han efectuado la sobresaturacion con hidrogeno por carga catodica. Como sustancia de adicion emplearon sulfuro de sodio marcado con azufre-35. Lograron demostrar que en media hora a la temperatura de -15 Degree-Sign C, el azufre penetra en el hierro hasta una profundidad de unas 120 {mu}m. Han podido comprobar ademas que el azufre se localiza preferentemente en los limites intergranulares.

    Physical parameters of the effluent dispersed from the wet cooling towers, i.e. mixture of the warm moist air with the entrained droplets are analysed. Understanding of the effluent physical parameters at the exit of cooling tower is important for prediction of the effluent dispersion in the environment. Mass and droplet diameter distributors of the drifted cooling water are measured in situ and also, drift eliminators are characterised experimentally. A new numerical method for heat and mass transfer evaluation in the cooling tower packing (fill) was developed, that leads to more accurate prediction for outlet air parameters in relation of plant power rate, cooling tower characteristics and atmospheric conditions.

    The use of atomic energy in Bulgaria is under regulation since 1985 by the Atomic Energy Law. The main points of the Law are discussed and some deficiencies are pointed out. The ratification of the Vienna and Paris conventions has contributed to updating the legislation. The participation in international projects related to the use of atomic energy and nuclear safety in particular is revised. Future development of nuclear energy in Bulgaria depends mainly on successful reconstruction, modernization and safety enhancement of the Kozloduy NPP and development of a national grid of technical and consultant firms.

    Device for high-temperature X-ray diffraction analysis, containing a vacuum chamber with a window for X-ray transit, in which sample- and standard-holders, heater, thermal shields and means for standard and sample temperature measurement are located, is proposed. In order to increase the working temperature level and the structural change detection accuracy the heater is located between the sample- and standard-holders. The standard-holder is linked with the mechanism of control of its position in relation to the heater. The device is intended for investigating phase transformations by differential thermal analysis method with the simultaneous diffraction pattern detection using X-ray diffractometry method.

    A narrow band of neutron wavelengths (4 A and greater) is selected from a collimated neutron beam obtained from the Dido reactor at Harwell. These neutrqps are scattered by various samples and the energy transfer of the scattered neutrons measured using time-of-flight techniques. The neutrons, moderated by a liquid hydrogen source in the reactor pass through first a liquid nitrogen- cooled filter, then a single crystal of bismuth and finally they are ''chopped'' by a magnesium-cadmium high- speed curved slot rotor. In this apparatus the wavelength spread of 0. 3 A at 4 . 1 A is determined primarily by the Be-Bi filter, while the time spread (8 {mu}s) is determined by the rotor. The monochromated neutron bursts from this rotor are scattered by a sample and detected in one of two counter arrays. When studying liquid or polycrystalline samples an array of six BF{sub 3}, counter assemblies (each 2 inches x 24 inches in area)are used covering scatter angles from 20{sup o} to 90{sup o}. This array is placed below the neutron beam. Above the line of the neutron beam is a second array consisting of three scintillators 2 inches in diameter, which is used for the study of single crystal samples. The output of each counter is fed into a tape recording system which has 500 time channels available for each counter. This apparatus has been used to study neutron scattering from several gaseous, liquid and crystalline samples and the most recent measurements are presented in other papers in these proceedings. [French] Les auteurs extraient une bande etroite de neutrons ( 4 A et plus) d'un faisceau collimate de neutrons produits par le reacteur Dido de Harwell. On fait diffuser ces neutrons au moyen de divers echantillons et on mesure le transfert d'energie des neutrons diffuses par la methode du temps de vol. Les neutrons ralentis par de l'hydrogene liquide place dans le reacteur passent d'abord dans un filtre refroidi a l'azote liquide, puis dans un monocristal de bismuth. Finalement, un rotor a rainures courbes en magnesium et cadmium, ayant une vitesse de rotation elevee, les laisse passer par bouffees. Dans cet appareil, le filtre Be-Bi sert a determiner la dispersion de la longueur d'onde (comprise entre 0,3 A et 4,1 A) et le rotor, la dispersion en fonction du temps (8 {mu}s). Les bouffees de neutrons monochromatiques provenant du rotor sont diffusees par un echantillon et detectees dans l'une de deux series de compteurs. Lorsqu'on etudie des echantillons liquides ou polycristallins, on emploie une serie de compteurs BF{sub 3} (dimensions: 2 x 2 4 pouces) couvrant des angles de diffusion variant de 20{sup o} a 90{sup o}. Cette serie est placee en-dessous du faisceau de neutrons. Au-dessus de l'axe du faisceau neutronique se trouve la deuxieme serie comprenant trois scintillateurs (diametre 2 pouces) pour etudier des echantillons de monocristaux. Chaque compteur agit sur un systeme d'enregistrement a bande magnetique qui comporte 500 canaux utilisables pour chacun des compteurs. Les auteurs se sont servis de cet appareil pour etudier la diffusion des neutrons dans plusieurs echantillons gazeux, liquides et cristallins. Dans d'autres memoires presentes au Colloque ils donnent les resultats des dernieres mesures faites. (author) [Spanish] De un haz colimado de neutrones, emitido por el reactor Dido de Harwell, se selecciona una estrecha banda de longitudes de onda neutronicas (4 A y mayores). Estos neutrones son dispersados por varias muestras y la energia por ellos cedida se mide segun el metodo del tiempo de vuelo. Los neutrones, moderados por una fuente de hidrogeno liquido situada en el reactor, atraviesan primero un filtro refrigerado por nitrogeno liquido, seguidamente un monocristal de bismuto, siendo, por ultimo ''interceptados'' por un rotor de ranura curva, de magnesio-cadmio animado de gran velocidad. En este aparato el ensanchamiento de longitud de onda (0, 3A a 4,1 A) queda principalmente determinado por el filtro de Be-Bi, y el de tiempo (8 {mu}s), por el rotor. Las rafagas de neutrales monocromaticos provenientes del rotor son dispersadas por una muestra y detectadas en uno de dos dispositivos de recuento. Cuando se estudian muestras liquidas o policristalinas, se utiliza un dispositivo de seis contadores (de BF{sub 3} de superficie unitaria) de 2 pulgadas por 24 pulgadas para angulos, de dispersion comprendidos entre 20{sup o} y 90{sup o}. Este dispositivo se coloca debajo del haz neutronico. Por encima del eje del haz, se instala otro dispositivo integrado por tres centelleadores de 2 pulgadas de diametro, que se utiliza para estudiar muestras monocristalinas. Las senales emitidas por cada contador se transmiten a un grabador de cinta que dispone de 500 canales de tiempo para cada contador. El aparato se ha utilizado para estudiar la dispersion de neutrones por varias muestras gaseosas, liquidas y cristalinas. Las mediciones masrecientesse exponen en otras memorias presentadas al Simposio. (author)

    To obtain a high degree of accuracy in determining the specific activity of sources by the absolute counting of particles with a 4{pi} counter, attention must be paid to the preparation of the radioactive sources. At the Mendeleev Institute of Metrology, celluloid films (surface density 8-10 {mu}/cm{sup 2}) coated on both sides with gold (10-15 {mu}g/cm{sup 2} ) or palladium (5-6 {mu}g/cm{sup 2}) are used as the bases of the radioactive sources. In order to reduce the correction for absorption of beta particles in the radioactive deposit, the base is specially treated with insulin. The authors present an extremely sensitive and effective method, employing the electron-capture nuclide {sup 54}Mn ({sup 54}Cr), for determining the uniform distribution of the active layer over the entire insulintreated surface. A solution of {sup 54}Mn ({sup 54}Cr) salt was applied to the insulin-tteated film, and the source of {sup 54}Cr ({sup 54}Mn) Auger K electrons thus obtained was investigated with the help of a proportional 4{pi} counter. The total number of {sup 54}Cr ({sup 54}Mn) Auger K electrons from the source was 8-12% less than the fluorescence coefficient (calculated from the number of {sup 54}Cr ({sup 54}Mn) K X-quanta emitted by the source) and the number of K electrons absorbed in the film (determined by the 'sandwich' method). From the differences, for insulintreated and untreated {sup 54}Mn ({sup 54}Cr) sources, between the calculated and recorded number of Auger electrons it is possible to reach a definite conclusion regarding the quality of the insulin treatment.

    Purpose: To evaluate toxicity, local tumor control, and survival after preoperative chemoradiation for operable bulky cervical carcinoma. Methods and Materials: Between December 1991 and July 2006, 92 patients with operable bulky stage IB2, IIA, and IIB cervical carcinoma without pelvic or para-aortic nodes on pretreatment imaging were treated. Treatment consisted of preoperative external beam pelvic radiation therapy (EBRT) and concomitant chemotherapy (CT) during the first and fourth weeks of radiation combining 5-fluorouracil and cisplatin. The pelvic radiation dose was 40.5 Gy over 4.5 weeks. EBRT was followed by low-dose rate uterovaginal brachytherapy with a total dose of 20 Gy in 62 patients. After a median rest period of 44 days, all patients underwent Class II modified radical hysterectomy with bilateral pelvic lymphadenectomy. Thirty patients who had not received preoperative uterovaginal brachytherapy underwent postoperative low-dose-rate vaginal brachytherapy at a dose of 20 Gy. The mean follow-up was 46 months. Results: Pathologic residual tumor was observed in 43 patients. After multivariate analysis, additional preoperative uterovaginal brachytherapy was the single significant predictive factor for pathologic complete response rate (p = 0.019). The 2- and 5-year disease-free survival (DFS) rates were 80.4% and 72.2%, respectively. Pathologic residual cervical tumor was the single independent factor decreasing the probability of DFS (p = 0.020). Acute toxicities were moderate. Two severe ureteral complications requiring surgical intervention were observed. Conclusions: Concomitant chemoradiation followed by surgery for operable bulky stage I-II cervical carcinoma without clinical lymph node involvement can be used with acceptable toxicity. Pathologic complete response increases the probability of DFS

Por ejemplo, se han modificado las empaquetaduras de las bombas del circuito primario de refrigeracion para alcanzar mayor rendimiento; el equipo de recuperacion de vapor por congelacion ha sido sustituido por columnas de absorcion a fin de reducir las perdidas de vapor de agua pesada; se estan instalando limitadores de flujo en algunas tuberias para disminuir las perdidas de agua pesada en el caso de averias en las juntas. En diciembre de 1962, dos escapes simultaneos que se produjeron en el aparato de realimentacion del reactor en marcha dieron origen a una serie de incidentes poco comunes; una cantidad considerable de agua pesada a alta presion y temperatura se derramo en el recinto del reactor, alterandose ligeramente su pureza isotopica.

    In this paper the procedures that have been and are currently being used for the determination of micro- microgram quantities of plutonium in biological and environmental samples are reviewed. Special emphasis is placed on excretion analysis. Expected urinary excretion rates have been calculated, using assumed levels of plutonium deposition, so that the analytical sensitivities of various procedures can be compared. Complete dissolution of excreta, soil, bone, tissue and vegetation are described with emphasis on avoiding the formation of refractory compounds of plutonium which are soluble with difficulty. Analytical methods for plutonium analysis of these materials are reviewed and include co-precipitation, liquid-liquid extraction, ion exchange chromatography and the use of plutonium isotopes for yield determinations by means of alpha energy analysis. Using counting statistics, comparisons are made of the sensitivities available in low-level alpha counting, using ionization chambers,- proportional counters, diode counters, and nuclear track emulsions. Isotopic analysis of plutonium by alpha spectrometry, nuclear emulsion techniques, and liquid scintillation counting are included. The use of non-isotopic carriers as a source of extraneous activity and the environmental levels of plutonium recently encountered around the world are discussed in connection with ''blank'' samples. Two possibilities are considered for future methods of plutonium analysis where increased sensitivity is required. These are activation analysis and fission fragment counting. (author) [French] Les auteurs examinent l'ensemble des methodes que l'on a employees et que Ton emploie actuellement pour evaluer les quantites de plutonium de l'ordre du picogramme presentes dans des echantillons biologiques et mesologiques. Ils insistent particulierement sur l'analyse des excreta. Ils ont calcule des taux d'elimination urinaire probables a partir de concentrations de plutonium theoriques, de maniere a pouvoir comparer'la sensibilite de differentes methodes d'analyse. Les auteurs decrivent la dissolution complete d'echantillons d'excreta, de sols, d'os, de tissus et de vegetaux en insistant sur la necessite d'eviter la formation de composes refractaires du plutonium qui sont difficilement solubles. Ils examinent les methodes analytiques employees pour doser le plutonium contenu dans ces substances, notamment la coprecipitation, l'extraction par partage) la chromato- graphie sur echangeurs d'ions et l'emploi d'isotopes du plutonium pour la determination des quantites produites par analyse de l'energie des particules alpha. A l'aide de statistiques du comptage, les auteurs comparent les sensibilites obtenues dans le comptage de particules alpha de faible energie au moyen de chambres d'ionisation, de compteurs proportionnels, de compteurs a diode et d'emulsions nucleaires. L'analyse isotopique du plutonium par spectrometrie alpha, les techniques des emulsions nucleaires et le comptage par scintillateur liquide sont traites dans le memoire. A propos des echantillons completement inactifs, les auteurs etudient l'emploi d'entraineurs non isotopiques en tant que source d'activite etrangere ainsi que les degres de contamination du milieu ambiant par du plutonium recemment releves dans le monde entier. Ils examinent deux possibilites comme futures methodes de dosage du plutonium, lorsqu'on veut obtenir une plus grande sensibilite: il s'agit de l'analyse par activation et du comptage des fragments de fission. (author) [Spanish] Los autores examinan los procedimientos utilizados anteriormente y en la actualidad para la determinacion de cantidades de plutonio del orden de los micro-microgramos en muestras biologicas y del medio ambiente. Estudian especialmente el analisis de las excreta. Han calculado los indices de excrecion urinaria probables adoptando valores arbitrarios para el deposito de plutonio, de una manera que facilita la comparacion de las sensibilidades analiticas de los distintos procedimientos. Los autores describen procedimiebtos para disolver completamente muestras de excreta, suelos, huesos, tejidos y plantas, insistiendo en la.necesidad de evitar la formacion de compuestos refractarios de plutonio, dificiles de disolver. Exponen metodos analiticos para efectuar el analisis del plutonio en esos materiales e incluyen la coprecipitacion, la extraccion liquido-liquido, la cromatografia de intercambio ionico y el empleo de los isotopos del plutonio para las determinaciones del rendimiento por analisis de la energia alfa. Recurriendo a razonamientos estadisticos, comparan las sensibilidades que es posible alcanzar en el recuento de particulas alfa de baja energia utilizando camaras de ionizacion, contadores proporcionales, contadores de diodo y emulsiones nucleares. Tambien mencionan el analisis isotopico del plutonio mediante la espectrometria alfa, las tecnicas de emulsion nuclear y el recuento por centelleo liquido. . Los autores tratan asimismo del empleo de los portadores no isotopicos como fuentes de actividad extrana y senalan los valores de la actividad del plutonio en el medio ambiente registrados recientemente en diferentes partes del mundo, relacionandolos con el empleo de muestras 'en blanco'. Indican dos metodos que podrian utilizarse para el analisis del plutonio cuando se requiera una sensibilidad mayor. Se trata del analisis por activacion y del recuento de los fragmentos de fision.

    The circuit allows unlimited memorization of a positive pulse of any shape, and retains both amplitude and width. Theoretically a rectangular pulse of amplitude A and width t produced as a single pulse when t = 0 can be reproduced in its own area after any time {tau}, so that it may be retained on an oscilloscope synchronized at a repetition frequency {approx_equal} 1/{tau}. The rise form of pulse is not memorized, so that the pulse rise and decay time retained by the oscilloscope are those inherent to the memorizing circuit. Basically the circuit may be considered as being formed by two stretching circuits. These transform the input width from t to t + {tau}. The lengthened pulses of opposite phases are added to obtain at the output a pulse of amplitude A and width t. The delay {tau} is controlled by two monostables triggered at an interval t (delay control circuit) by a saturated amplifier which squares the input and gives two pulses, through a differentiating circuit (delay-measuring circuit). The output pulse is fed back to the input through an attenuator and a delay line. The cycle is repeated with a repetition rate of {approx} l/{tau}. The memorized pulse has a width from 50 {mu}s to over 10 ms. The repetition rate may vary from 10{sup 4} Hz to 30 Hz and less. Another circuit, obtained by using the same principle, is described in the original paper. It can also memorize input pulse shape apart from the amplitude and width. (author) [French] Le circuit permet la memorisation illimitee d'une impulsion positive de n'importe quelle forme; il en conserve a la fois l'amplitude et la largeur. Theoriquement, une impulsion rectangulaire d'une amplitude A et d'une largeur t, produite sous forme d'impulsion unique a un temps t = 0, peut etre reproduite apres un temps {tau}, ce qui permet de la conserver sur un oscilloscope synchronise a une frequence de repetition {approx_equal} 1/{tau}. La forme de la montee de l'impulsion n'etant pas memorisee, les temps de montee et de decroissance retenus par l'oscilloscope sont les temps propres au circuit de memorisation. On peut considerer le circuit comme etant forme essentiellement de deux circuits d'allongement qui transforment la largeur a l'entree de t en t + {tau}. On additionne les impulsions allongees de phases opposees pour obtenir a la sortie, une impulsion d'amplitude A et de largeur t. Le retard {tau} est commande a l'aide de deux circuits monostables, declenches a un intervalle t (circuit de la commande de retard) par un amplificateur sature qui donne a l'impulsion d'entree une forme rectangulaire et emet deux impulsions par l'intermediaire d'un circuit de differentiation (circuit de mesure du retard). L'impulsion de sortie est retransmise a l'entree par un attenuateur et une ligne a retard. Le cycle est repete avec une frequence de repetition de {approx} 1/{tau}. L'impulsion memorisee a une largeur comprise entre 50 {mu}s et 10 ms ou davantage. La frequence de repetition peut varier de 10{sup 4} Hz a 30 Hz et en dessous. Les auteurs decrivent egalement un autre circuit fonde sur le meme principe et capable de memoriser, en plus de l'amplitude et de la largeur, la forme de l'impulsion d'entree. (author) [Spanish] El circuito permite el almacenaje ilimitado de un impulso positivo de cualquier forma, conservando tanto la amplitud como el ancho del impulso. En teoria, un impulso rectangular de amplitud A y anchura t producido como impulso aislado en un tiempo t = 0 puede ser reproducido en su propia area despues de un tiempo cualquiera {tau}, de forma que puede ser retenido en un osciloscopio sincronizado a una frequencia de repeticion {approx_equal} 1/{tau}. El circuito no memoriza la forma de elevacion del impulso, asi que los tiempos de elevacion y de caida del impulso que retiene el osciloscopio son los inherentes al propio circuito memorizador. En esencia, se puede considerar que el circuito esta formado por dos circuitos alargadores que amplian la anchura de entrada desde ra t + {tau}. Se suman los impulsos alargados de fase opuesta y se obtiene asi en la salida un impulso de amplitud A y de anchura t. El retardo {tau} es controlado por dos univibradores disparados a una distancia t (circuito de control del retardo) por un amplificador saturado que transforma en rectangular al impulso de entrada y da dos impulsos por medio de un circuito diferenciador (circuito medidor del retardo). El impulso de salida se pasa de nuevo a la entrada a traves de un atenuador y de una linea de retardo, El ciclo se repite con una frecuencia de {approx} 1/{tau}. El impulso memorizado tiene un ancho de 50 {mu}s a 10 ms y hasta mas. La frecuencia de repeticion puede variar desde 10{sup 4} Hz hasta 30 Hz e incluso menos. Se describe otro circuito basado en el mismo principio y que es capaz de memorizar la configuracion del impulso de entrada ademas de su amplitud y de su anchura.

    The portable scintillated gamma-spectrometer for field measurement of radioactivity in the volume objects was designed. The crystal CdWO{sub 4} that has weak dependence of light yield from temperature in combination with PMT was applied as the gamma-rays detector. The design of the device provides the possibility for measuring radioactivity of the extensive objects in 4{pi}-geometry without background measurements. In this case the value of the efficiency needed for specific activity calculation in close approximation depends only from crystal geometry and density of measuring object and may be set as the device parameter without efficiency calibration procedure during the operation. The spectrometer does not have an auxiliary radio-active source and connecting cables in the composition. The smartphone operated under Windows Mobile is used as the control module. Bluetooth connection provides data exchange between smartphone and measurement head.

    A new type of steel has been developed, containing 0.11-0.20% N and less than 0.05% C, the sum of both components being within the range 0.16-0.26%. The metal has an austenite-martensite structure with 10-30% austenite content. Samples obtained by counter-pressure casting have been investigated with respect to the influence of the thermal treatment on mechanical properties. The best properties are obtained when applying hardening by heating at 1050{sup o} C and cooling at 550{sup o} C: fluidity limit R{sub 0}.2>=850 MPa, relative elongation A>=15%, relative shortening Z>=50%, impact viscosity KCU >= 588 kJ/m{sup 2} at critical temperature of brittleness <-40{sup o} C. These properties are combined with high corrosion and wear resistance and make the steel suitable for steam turbine blades. 5 refs., 2 figs., 4 tabs.

    Atomic Energy of Canada Limited (AECL) began work on the irradiation of potatoes in 1956, using spent fuel rods as the radiation source. In 1958 the first Gammacell 220, a self-contained irradiator, was designed and manufactured by AECL, and cobalt-60 was then used exclusively in the food irradiation programme. In 1960 the first food and drug clearance was obtained for potatoes. The next stage was to demonstrate to the potato industry that cobalt-60 was a safe, simple and reliable tool, and that irradiation would inhibit sprouting under field conditions. A mobile irradiator was designed and produced by AECL in 1961 to carry out this pilot-plant programme. The irradiator was mounted on a fully-equipped road trailer and spent the 1961/1962 season irradiating one million pounds of potatoes at various points in Eastern Canada. In 1965 the first commercial food irradiator was designed and built by AECL for Newfield Products, Ltd. Whilst the potato programme was under way, AECL initiated co-operative programmes with Canadian food research laboratories, using additional Gammacells. In 1960, AECL constructed an irradiation facility in a shielded room at its own plant in Ottawa for the irradiation of larger objects, such as sides of pork and stems of bananas. During 1963 the mobile irradiator, already a most useful tool, was made more versatile when its source strength was increased and it was equipped with a product cooling system and van air conditioning. Following these modifications, the unit was employed in California for the irradiation of a wide spectrum of fruits at the United States Department of Agriculture Station in Fresno. The Gammacell, mobile irradiator, shielded-room facility, the commercial food irradiator and some of the main food programmes are described in detail. There is an increasing amount of interest in irradiation by the food industry, and prospects are encouraging for future installations. (author) [French] L'Atomic Energy of Canada Limited'(AECL) a entrepris en 1956 des travaux sur l'irradiation des pommes de terre en utilisant comme source des barreaux de combustible epuise. En 1958, l'AECL a concu et fabrique le premier appareil Gammacell 220, qui est un irradiateur complet, et l'on n'a plus utilise que du cobalt-60 pour l'execution du programme d'irradiation des aliments. En 1960, la premiere autorisation du service de controle des produits alimentaires et pharmaceutiques a ete obtenue pour les pommes de terre. La phase suivante consistait a montrer aux producteurs et distributeurs de pommes de terre que le cobalt-60 est un instrument sans danger, simple et sur, et que l'irradiation entrave la germination. En 1961 l'AECL a concu et fabrique un irradiateur mobile afin d'executer le programme de demonstration. L'irradiateur a ete monte sur une remorque routiere entierement equipee et, au cours de la saison 1961/1962, 500 tonnes de pommes de terre ont ete irradiees en divers endroits du Canada oriental. En 1965, l'AECL a concu et construit le premier irradiateur commercial de denrees alimentaires pour la compagnie Newfield Products Ltd. Pendant l'execution du programme d'irradiation des pommes.de terre, l'AECL a lance des programmes communs avec des laboratoires canadiens de recherche sur les produits alimentaires, en utilisant d'autres appareils Gammacell. En 1960, l'AECL a construit une installation d'irradiation en casemate dans son etablissement d'Ottawa pour l'irradiation d'articles plus volumineux tels que des quartiers de porcs et des regimes de bananes. Au cours de l'annee 1963, l'irradiateur mobile, qui avait deja montre son utilite, a ete modifie en vue d'elargir ses applications: l'intensite de la source a ete augmentee et il a ete equipe d'un dispositif de refroidissement des produits; en outre, la remorque a ete climatisee. Ainsi transforme, il a ete utilise en Californie pour l'irradiation d'une grande variete de fruits a la station du Departement de l'agriculture des Etats-Unis, a Fresno. Le memoire decrit en detail l'appareil Gammacell, l'irradiateur mobile, la casemate, l'irradiateur commercial et quelques-uns des principaux programmes d'irradiation. L'industrie alimentaire s'interesse de plus en plus a l'irradiation et les perspectives sont encourageantes pour les installations futures. (author) [Spanish] En 1956 la Comision de Energia Atomica del Canada (AECL) comenzo sus trabajos sobre irradiacion de patatas utilizando barras de combustible agotado como fuente de radiacion. En 1958 proyecto y construyo su primera fuente tipo Gammacell 220, que es un dispositivo de irradiacion autonomo; entonces, para el programa de irradiacion de alimentos solo se utilizaba cobalto-60. El Servicio de productos alimenticios y farmaceuticos concedio en 1960 su primera autorizacion para la irradiacion de patatas. La etapa siguiente consistio en demostrar a los sectores dedicados a la explotacion de ese tuberculo que la-fuente de cobalto-60 es un instrumento sencillo y seguro, y que la irradiacion impide la germinacion en las condiciones usuales de almacenamiento. En 1961 la AECL diseno y construyo un dispositivo movil de irradiacion para ejecutar este programa experimental. El irradiador se monto en un autorremolque completamente equipado que durante la temporada de 1961-1962 irradio 1000 000 de libras de patatas en varios puntos del Canada oriental. En 1965 la AECL diseno y construyo para la Newfield Products Ltd el primer dispositivo de irradiacion comercial de alimentos. Mientras se ejecutaba el programa de irradiacion de patatas la AECL inicio algunos programas de cooperacion con laboratorios canadienses de investigaciones sobre productos alimenticios, para los que se utilizaron tambien fuentes tipo Gammacell. En 1960 la AECL construyo en su centro de Ottawa una instalacion de irradiacion con camara blindada para irradiar objetos voluminosos tales como piezas de carne de cerdo y mazos de platanos. En 1963, se dieron nuevas posibilidades de empleo al dispositivo movil de irradiacion, ya de por si sumamente util; se aumento la potencia de su fuente y se le doto de un sistema de refrigeracion de productos y de acondicionamiento de aire. Una vez modificado el dispositivo se utilizo en California para irradiar una gran variedad de frutas en la estacion que el Departamento de Agricultura de los Estados Unidos tiene en Fresno. En la memoria se describen en detalle la fuente tipo Gammacell, el dispositivo movil de irradiacion, la.instalacion con camara blindada, el dispositivo de irradiacion comercial de alimentos y algunos de los principales programas. El interes de la industria por la irradiacion de alimentos aumenta constantemente y las perspectivas en lo que respecta a nuevas instalaciones de irradiacion son muy alentadoras.

    The paper describes the results of tests on the properties of hydrogen-enriched nuclear-track emulsions for detecting fast neutrons, which were prepared in the Radiological Dosimetry Laboratory of the Czechoslovak Academy of Sciences Nuclear Research Institute. It also compares the dosimetric characteristics of these new emulsions with those of the gelatin emulsions used up to the present. The most promising of the series of polymers synthesized in the laboratory were: (1) Polyvinylacetal of 2,4-disulphonic acid benzaldehyde (polymer No. 1); (2) The co-polymer of a-acetylaminoacrylic acid and N-vinylpyrrolidone (polymer No. 2). The author also studied the possibility of using polyvinyl alcohol solutions with a higher hydrogen content than the above polymers for saturating polymer-gelatin emulsions and for preparing from them films for use as proton radiators. Polymers No. 1 and No. 2 were tested beforehand in an ammonia emulsion. It was established that polymer No. 1 has no marked effect on the photochemical properties of the emulsions, whereas the physical and mechanical.properties of the polymer-gelatin emulsions are considerably better than those of normal gelatin emulsions. The polymers have good protective properties, and polymer No. 2; can be used even during physical ageing, since it retards this process only to a small extent. The photochemical properties of the polymer-gelatin emulsions remain practically unchanged during natural ageing, and their mechanical strength is still further increased. After these preliminary tests, polymers No.-1 and No. 2 were used as fillers for a nuclear-track emulsion, in quantities ranging from 50 to 70% of the total amount of protective colloid, the silver content of the emulsion remaining unchanged. To increase their efficiency further, the polymer-gelatin emulsions were saturated with hydrogen, which was passed through the liquid emulsion for a short period of time. When prepared, the emulsions were poured on a tri-acetate substrate 190-{mu}m thick, which was an effective proton radiator. The emulsions were irradiated with fast neutrons of fluence 1.56 x 10{sup 8} n/cm{sup 2} from an RaD-Be source. For increased efficiency of neutron detection, supplementary proton radiators such as polyvinyl alcohol (PVA), tri-acetate (T) and polyethylene (PE) of the optimum thickness were used during irradiation of the emulsion. Dosimetric analysis of the results gave the following: (1) The efficiency of detection was increased, in comparison with normal gelatin emulsions, by: (a) up to 25% when using polymers No. 1 and No. 2, depending on the degree of filling, and (b) 100% when polymer No. 1 was used in a hydrogen-saturated emulsion taken as a standard polymer-gelatin emulsion (SPGE), (2) When the optimum supplementary proton radiators (PVA, T, PE) were added to this SPGE, its detection efficiency was further increased to 330%.

    The bio-assay laboratory at Trombay carries out nearly 2000 analyses of urine samples annually for different radionuclides. The most abundant isotopes of interest are Th{sup 232}, Th{sup 228}, Ra{sup 226}, Ra{sup 224} and Ra{sup 228}, U natural, fission products and Pu{sup 239}. The others are Co{sup 60}, I{sup 131}, P{sup 32}, Cs{sup 137}, H{sup 3}, Sr{sup 90}, etc. Analyses of a large number of samples containing low levels of activity with speed calls for development of special techniques when high specificity with good yields are desired. Urine presents a very complex matrix with a large amount of complexing organic material as well as variable salt content. Wet ashing procedures are time-consuming and cumbersome where samples of about 1 to 1.5 l are required to be destroyed. The paper presents some very recent methods developed in the laboratory and details of tracer studies involved in the development of these methods. Ra{sup 228}: Measurement of mesothorium in urine is made after separation of Ac{sup 228} grown in equilibrium with it. Radium present in urine is co-precipitated with BaSO{sub 4} and Ac{sup 228} allowed to grow. The precipitate is dissolved in perchloric acid after the addition of Pb, Bi and La carriers. The insoluble sulphates are precipitated with diluted H{sub 2}SO{sub 4}. Ac{sup 2}'2{sup 8} in the supernate is carried on LaF{sub 3} and counted for beta activity and checked for decay. Ra{sup 228} is calculated from observed Ac{sup 228} activity after correcting for decay and chemical recovery. Thorium: The method describes techniques developed for the co-precipitation of thorium with calcium oxalate without wet ashing urine. A study of exact experimental conditions for quantitative precipitation of thorium is reported. The paper also gives tracer experiments carried out for study of interference from phosphates and calcium in the final extraction of thorium with TTA. Thorium-232 is estimated spectrophotometrically and thorium-228 in the separated thorium fraction by separation of Ra{sup 224} after equilibration. . Among other studies reported are the determinations of Cs{sup 137}, P{sup 32}, Co{sup 60} and I{sup 131}. Urine is oxidized by boiling with nitric acid and hydrogen peroxide and proceeded with for the estimation of these elements; Cs{sup 137} is separated by absorption on ammonium phosphomolybdate; a study is made of the different methods for the recovery of Cs{sup 137} from AMP; P{sup 32} is precipitated as MgNH{sub 4}PO{sub 4} in the presence of EDTA as masking agent; Co{sup 60} is recovered as chloro complex by ion exchange techniques; I{sup 131} is separated from urine with silver chloride by bath extraction techniques. The paper reports progress of work in the bio-assay laboratory from 1958 to date.

Parmi les elements interessants, ceux que l'on rencontre le plus frequemment sont le thorium 232 et 228, le radium 226, 224 et 228, l'uranium naturel, les produits de fission et le plutonium 239. Les autres sont le cobalt 60, l'iode 131, le phosphore 32, le cesium 137, le tritium, le strontium 90, etc. Pour analyser rapidement un grand nombre d'echantillons faiblement actifs, il faut mettre au point des techniques speciales si l'on veut une haute specificite et de bons resultats. L'urine constitue une matrice tres complexe, car elle contient une grande quantite de complexants organiques et sa teneur en sels est variable. Lorsqu'il s'agit de detruire des echantillons de 1 a 1, 5 1, les procedes d'incineration par voie humide s'averent longs et difficiles a mettre en oeuvre. Le memoire expose quelques-unes des methodes que le laboratoire a mises au point tout recemment, ainsi que les details d'etudes a l'aide de radio-indicateurs faites pour ces mises au point. {sup 228}Ra: On dose le mesothorium dans l'urine apres avoir separe le {sup 228}Ac forme en equilibre avec lui. On fait coprecipiter le radium present dans l'urine avec BaSO{sub 4} et on laisse se former {sup 228}Ac. Le precipite est dissous dans i'acide perchlorique apres addition d'entraineurs (Pb, Bi et La). Les sulfates insolubles sont precipites avec H{sub 2}SO{sub 4} dilue. {sup 228}Ac surnageant est entraine sur LaF{sub 3} ; on en mesure l'activite beta et en controle la decroissance. D'apres la teneur en {sup 228}Ac observee, que l'on corrige pour tenir compte de la decroissance et de la recuperation chimique, on calcule la teneur en 228Ra. Thorium: Le memoire decrit les methodes que l'on a mises au point pour coprecipiter le thorium avec l'oxalate de calcium, sans incineration de l'urine par voie humide. Il fait etat d'une etude sur les conditions exactes d'experimentation necessaires pour la precipitation quantitative du thorium. Il y est aussi question d'experiences, a l'aide de radioindicateurs, sur l'interference due aux phosphates et au calcium dans l'extraction finale du thorium au moyen de TTA. On mesure le thorium 232 par spectrophotometrie; quant au thorium 228 contenu dans la fraction de thorium separee, on l'estime par separation de {sup 224}Ra apres equilibrage. Au nombre des autres etudes mentionnees figure la determination de {sup 137}Cs, {sup 32}P, {sup 60}Co et {sup 131}I. On oxyde l'urine par ebullition avec de l'acide nitrique et de l'eau oxygenee, et on la traite ensuite en vue de la determination de ces elements. On separe {sup 137}Cs par absorption sur du phosphomolybdate d'ammonium. Les auteurs indiquent les differentes methodes permettant de recuperer {sup 137}Cs contenu dans le phosphomolybdate. On precipite {sup 32}P sous forme de MgNH{sub 4}PO{sub 4} en presence d'EDTA intervenant comme agent de blocage. On recupere {sup 60}Co par echange d'ions sous forme de complexe chloro. On separe {sup 131}I de l'urine au moyen de chlorure d'argent par des methodes d'extraction en discontinu. Le memoire signale les travaux accomplis au laboratoire d'analyses biologiques depuis 1958. (author) [Spanish] El laboratorio de analisis biologicos de Trombay efectua anualmente cerca de dos mil analisis de orina para determinar diferentes radionuclidos, siendo los isotopos de mayor interes el {sup 232}Th, {sup 228}Th, {sup 226}Ra, {sup 224}Ra, {sup 228}Ra, U natural, productos de fision y {sup 239}Pu, asip como el {sup 60}Co, {sup 32}P, {sup 131}I, {sup 32}P, {sup 137}Cs, {sup 3}H, {sup 90}Sr, etc. El analisis rapido de un gran numero de muestras de baja actividad exige el perfeccionamiento de tecnicas especiales, sobre todo cuando se desea un alto grado de especificidad, unido a un elevado rendimiento. La' orina presenta una matriz muy complicada, con una elevada proporcion de sustancias organicas complejantes y contenido variable de sales. Los procedimientos de calcinacion por via humeda exigen un tiempo considerable y resultan engorrosos cuando se han de destruir muestras de aproximadamente 1 a 1,5 l. El trabajo deseribe algunos metodos recientemente desarrollados en el laboratorio de los autores y proporciona detalles de estudios sobre indicadores que han intervenido en el desarrollo de aquellos metodos. Radio-228: Se mide el mesotorio contenido en la orina despues de separar el {sup 228}Ac en equilibrio radiactivo. El radio presente en la orina se coprecipita con BaSO{sub 4}, teniendose en cuenta que sigue formandose {sup 228}Ac. El precipitado se disuelve en acido perclorico despues de anadir como portadores Pb, Bi y La. Los sulfatos insolubles se precipitan con H{sub 2}SO{sub 4} diluido y el {sup 228}Ac que permanece en solucion, despues de ser arrastrado con F{sub 3}La, se somete a recuento de actividad beta y se comprueba la disminucion de actividad. La cantidad de {sup 228}Ra se calcula a partir de la actividad observada en el {sup 228}Ac despues de introducir la oportuna correccion para tener en cuenta la desintegracion y el rendimiento de la recuperacion quimica. Torio: El trabajo describe la tecnica puesta a punto para la coprecipitacion del torio con oxalato calcico sin necesidad de calcinacion por via humeda de la orina e informa acerca de un estudio de las condiciones experimentales correctas para la precipitacion cuantitativa del torio. El trabajo menciona asimismo experimentos con indicadores llevados a cabo para estudiar las interferencias causadas por los fosfatos y el calcio en la extraccion final del torio con tenoiltrifiuoroacetona. La valoracion del torio-232 se efectua por espectrofotometria y la del torio-228 - en la fraccion del torio remanente- por separacion del {sup 224}Ra despues de alcanzar el equilibrio. Otros estudios citados en la memoria incluyen la determinacion del {sup 137}Cs, {sup 32}P, {sup 60}Co y {sup 131}I. La orina se oxida hirviendola con acido nitrico y peroxido de hidrogeno antes de proceder a la valoracion de estos elementos. El {sup 137}Cs se separa por absorcion en fosfomolibdato amonico y se realiza un estudio de los diferentes metodos para la recuperacion de aquel elemento del fosfomolibdato amonico. E 1{sup 32}P se precipita bajo forma de MgNH{sub 4}PO{sub 4} en presencia de etilendiaminotetraacetato como agente de quelacion. El {sup 60}Co se recupera como cloro-complejo por medio de tecnicas de intercambio ionico y el {sup 131}I se separa de la orina con cloruro de plata mediante tecnicas de extraccion discontinua. La memoria describe la actividad desplegada por el laboratorio de biologia desde 1958 hasta la fecha.

    To investigate the different problems in radiation biophysics and radiation biology the necessity to develop equipment with a very high output of X-rays became evident at the beginning of the 1940's. This equipment made it possible to produce much higher dose-rates than the technical constructions which existed at that time. Such equipment was developed between 1950-1953 by the author and collaborators at the Max Planck Institut fur Biophysik and has been in use since then for scientific research. It later became clear that these X-ray machines are also very suitable for the sterilization and disinfection of drugs, food and other materials. At the Max Planck Institut fur Biophysik three types of equipment are used. With the construction of the AEG X-ray equipment of 120 kV and 500 mA, the industrial technique has been adopted and gradually implemented. The equipment constructed by the author and collaborators had three different types of X-ray tubes which can be connected with a high-voltage transformer of 240 kVA. These tubes run continuously, or for a short time, with a tube current of 2A and a voltage of up to 100 kV. The radiation dose-rate amounts to 10{sup 7} R/min. These tubes permit irradiation with continuous conveyance of a great amount of irradiation material. The corresponding industrial equipment constructed up to now is described. (author) [French] Pour etudier les problemes de radiobiophysique et de radiobiologie, on a constate, des le debut des annees 40, la necessite de mettre au point des appareils a rayons X tres intenses. Ces appareils devaient permettre d'obtenir des debits de dose beaucoup plus eleves qu'avec les installations existantes. De telles machines ont ete mises au point en 1950-1953 par l'auteur et ses collaborateurs a l'Institut Max Planck de biophysique et sont utilisees depuis lors pour la recherche scientifique. Par la suite, on a constate que ces generateurs de rayons X conviennent egalement tres bien pour la sterilisation et l'aseptisation des medicaments, des denrees alimentaires et d'autres matieres. A l'Institut Max Planck de biophysique,on utilise trois types de radiogenerateurs. La construction par la societe AEG de generateurs de rayons X de 120 kV et 500 mA a amene la technique industrielle a adopter ces caracteristiques et a realiser graduellement ce materiel. Les appareils construits par l'auteur et ses collaborateurs sont munis de trois types differents de tubes a rayons X qui peuvent etre alimentes par un transformateur a haute tension de 240 kVA. Ces tubes peuvent fonctionner continuellement ou pendant un court laps de temps sous un courant de 2A. et 100 kV. Le debit de dose du rayonnement atteint 10{sup 7} R/min. Ces tubes permettent l'irradiation d'une grande quantite de produits sur un convoyeur a mouvement continu. Les appareils industriels correspondants realises jusqu'a present sont decrits par l'auteur. (author) [Spanish] La necesidad de construir aparatos de rayos X de gran potencia para investigar diferentes problemas de radiobiofisica y radiobiologia comenzo a hacerse patente a partir de 1940. Estos aparatos permiten administrar dosis mucho mas elevadas que los modelos entonces existentes. Fueron ideados y perfeccionados entre 1951 y 1953 por el autor y sus colaboradores del Max Planck Institut fiir Biophysik, y se vienen utilizando desde entonces para investigaciones cientificas. Ulteriormente se advirtio que se prestan muy bien para esterilizar y desinfectar productos farmaceuticos, alimentos y otras sustancias. En dicho Instituto se utilizan tres tipos de estos aparatos. Con la construccion del aparato de rayos X AEG para 120 kV y 500 mA, la tecnica industrial ha adoptado esas ideas y las esta poniendo en practica gradualmente. Los aparatos construidos por el autor y sus colaboradores estan provistos de tres tipos diferentes de tubos de rayos X que pueden conectarse con un transformador de alta tension de 240 kVA. Estos tubos funcionan continuamente o durante breves intervalos con una intensidad de 2 A y una tension de 100 kV como maximo. La.dosis de irradiacion asciende a 10{sup 7} R/min. Utilizando una cinta transportadora continua ios tubos permiten irradiar una gran cantidad de material. Se describe el correspondiente equipo industrial realizado hasta la fecha.

    The detection of gamma-emitting radionuclides at environmental levels in biological media requires that the sensitivity of the counting system be high. To accumulate sufficiently precise data, it is often necessary to count samples for long periods of time - from one to several hours. The most efficient utilization of expensive low-background gamma-ray spectrometric counting equipment requires that it be operated on a continuous basis. This necessitates either the continuous presence of personnel or a completely automated system, including the changing of samples and recording of data. The purpose of this paper is to describe the automated gamma-ray spectrometry counting system designed, built and in use at the Northeastern Radiological Health Laboratory, Winchester, Massachusetts. The sample changing unit was designed to operate in conjunction with a large steel shield, any commercial unit with a front opening door being readily adaptable for this purpose. The changer is equipped to handle a variety of samples including biological and medical types. The unit consists of a revolving tray with a capacity for sixteen samples, an indexing system for positioning the samples, a mechanical arm with an attached electromagnet for inserting and removing the samples from the shield, and a lever for opening and closing the shield door. The changer has been completely integrated with a multichannel analyser with the provision of safety features to interrupt the cycle in case of malfunction at any step. After a preset counting period, the data are punched onto paper tape and processed by an IBM. 1620 computer. The first model of the sample changer, for which a patent is pending, has been in operation at the Northeastern Radiological Health Laboratory for about one year. During that time, it has been used extensively and has proven completely satisfactory. The total cost of the unit, including labour, was less than $ 2000. (author) [French] GAMMAPour deceler les radionucleides emetteurs gamma presents dans les milieux biologiques a la concentration naturelle, il faut que l'ensemble de comptage utilise soit de haute sensibilite et, de plus, que la duree du comptage des echantillons soit longue - de une li plusieurs heures -, sil'onveut obtenir des donnees assez precises. Pour tirer le meilleur parti possible de l'appareil de comptage par spectroscopie gamma a faible mouvement propre qui est couteux, il faut l'utiliser sans interruption. Cela suppose la presence continue de personnel ou une complete automatisation comprenant le changement des echantillons et l'enregistrement des donnees. Le memoire a pour objet de decrire l'appareil automatique de comptage par spectrometrie gamma, concu et realise par le Northeastern Radiological Health Laboratory, a Winchester (Massachusetts). Le changeur d'echantillons est coupje a une enceinte blindee en acier, n'importe quelle enceinte blindee en vente dans le commerce avec porte sur le devant pouvant etre facilement adaptee a cette fin. Le changeur est capable de manipuler toute une variete d'echantillons, notamment des echantillons biologiques et medicaux. Il est constitue par un plateau rotatif destine a recevoir 16 echantillons, un dispositif code de positionnement des echantillons, un bras mecanique muni d'un electro-aimant qui introduit les echantillons dans l'enceinte et les en retire, et d'un levier automatique commandant l'ouverture et la fermeture de la porte de l'enceinte. Le changeur est completement integre a un analyseur multicanal et equipe de circuits de controle permettant d'arreter l'experience en cas de fonctionnement defectueux a un moment quelconque. Apres comptage pendant une periode determinee a l'avance, les donnees sont enregistrees par perforation sur bande puis traitees a l'aide d'une calculatrice IBM 1620. Ce premier modele de changeur d'echantillons, qui doit etre brevete incessamment, fonctionne depuis un an environ au Northeastern Radiological Health Laboratory. Il a ete intensement utilise pendant cette periode et s'est revele tout a fait satisfaisant. Son prix de revient, main-d'oeuvre comprise, est inferieur a 2000 dollars. (author) [Spanish] La deteccion en medios biologicos de radionuclidos emisores gamma de actividad poco superior a la ambiente requiere el empleo de un sistema de recuento muy sensible. Ademas, para lograr datos suficientemente precisos es necesario que el tiempo de recuento sea relativamente largo, a saber, de una a varias horas. Para utilizar con la mayor eficacia posible el equipo de recuento de espectrometria gamma de baja actividad de fondo, que es sumamente costoso, conviene hacerlo funcionar en forma continua durante 24 h al dfa. Para ello se requiere personal que lo atienda constantemente o un sistema de recuento enteramente automatico incluso para el cambio de muestras y el registro de los datos. En esta memoria se describe el sistema automatizado de recuento por espectroscopia gamma disenado, construido y utilizado en el Northeastern Radiological Health Laboratory de Winchester, Massachusetts. El cambiador de muestras funciona en conjuncion con un blindaje de acero que no necesita ser especial; cualquiera de los comerciales, si esta provisto de una puerta frontal, puede ser adaptado al cambiador. Dicho cambiador puede adaptarse a diversos tipos de muestras, incluidas las biologicas y medicas. Consta de una bandeja giratoria con capacidad para 16 muestras; un sistema localizador para las muestras; un brazo mecanico, con electroiman, para introducir o retirar las muestras desde el exterior, y una palanca para abrir y cerrar la puerta blindada. El cambiador se ha integrado completamente con un analizador multicanal provisto de dispositivos de seguridad que interrumpen el ciclo cuando se produce una averfa en cualquier punto. Despues de un periodo de recuento predeterminado, los datos pasan a una calculadora IBM 1620 transcritos en cinta de papel perforada. El primer modelo de cambiador de muestras, para el cual se ha solicitado una patente, viene funcionando satisfactoriamente desde hace mas de un ano en el Northeastern Radiological Health Laboratory. Su costo total, inclusive la mano de obra, fue inferior a 2000 dolares.

    Reasonably complete knowledge of the phonon dispersion curves for at least a dozen metallic elements and intermetallic compounds has now been obtained from neutron inelastic scattering experiments. The results have one feature in common: when analysed in terms of interatomic force constants they reveal the presence of comparatively long-range forces extending over several atomic spacings. The results for lead are particularly interesting; it did not prove possible to fit them by a force-constant model, but the dispersion curves for wave vectors in symmetry directions when analysed in terms of force constants between planes of atoms showed an oscillatory interatomic potential extending over distances of more than 20A. This review is concerned with recent theoretical work which has a bearing on the calculation of phonon dispersion curves for metals and the explanation of the long range of the interatomic potential. The best hope at present for a general treatment of atomic interaction in metals appears to lie in the ''method of neutral pseudo-atoms'', (a description recently coined by Ziman). This approximate theory is outlined and its relevance to Kohn anomalies in phonon dispersion curves is discussed. Experimental data for sodium is consistent with the theory, and the interatomic potential in sodium varies periodically in a distance {pi}/k{sub F}, where fik{sub F} is the Fermi momentum, as has already been demonstrated by Koenig in a different way. More exact calculations have been made for sodium by Toya and by Sham. The relationship between the different methods and other work of a more general character such as that of Harrison are discussed. (author) [French] A la suite d'experiences de dispersion inelastique des neutrons, on a maintenant une connaissance assez complete des courbes de dispersion des phonons pour une douzaine de metaux et de composes intermetalliques au moins. Les resultats presentent le caractere commun suivant: si on les analyse en fonction des constantes de forces interatomiques, ils revelent la presence de forces de portee relativement longue (plusieurs espaces atomiques). Les resultats relatifs au plomb sont particulierement interessants; il n'a pas ete possible de les ajuster au moyen d'un modele de constantes de forces, mais les courbes de dispersion pour les vecteurs d*ondes dans des directions de symetrie, analysees en fonction des constantes de forces entre plans d'atomes, accusent un potentiel interatomique oscillatoire qui s'etend sur des distances de plus de 20 A. L'auteur fait le point des travaux theoriques recents qui ont des incidences sur le calcul des courbes de dispersion des phonons pour des metaux, et tente d'expliquer la longue portee du potentiel interatomique. Il semble qu'actuellement ce soit la 'methode des pseudo-atomes neutres' (expression forgee recemment par Ziman) qui offre les meilleures chances de permettre un traitement general de l'interaction atomique dans des metaux. L'auteur donne un apercu de cette theorie et discute son importance du point de vue des anomalies de Kohn dans les courbes de dispersion des phonons. Les donnees experimentales pour le sodium sont en accord avec cette theorie et le potentiel interatomique dans le sodium varie periodiquement sur une distance {pi}/k{sub F}, hk{sub F} etant le moment de Fermi, ainsi que Koenig l'avait deja demontre d'une autre facon. Des calculs plus exacts ont ete effectues pour le sodium par Toya et par Sham. Le memoire examine les relations entre les differentes methodes, ainsi que d'autres travaux d'un caractere plus general, tels que ceux d'Harrison. (author) [Spanish] Los experimentos de dispersion inelastica de neutrones han permitido acopiar datos bastadte completos sobre las curvas de dispersion fononica correspondientes a una docena, por lo menos, de elementos metalicos y de compuestos intermetalicos. Los resultados presentan una caracteristica comun: analizados en funcion de las constantes de fuerzas interatomicas, manifiestan la presencia de fuerzas de alcance relativamente grande, que se extienden a varios espacios interatomicos. Los resultados relativos al plomo son particularmente interesantes; no fue posible ajustarlos a un modelo de constantes de fuerza, pero las curvas de dispersion de los vectores de onda en las direcciones de simetria, analizadas en funcion de las constantes de fuerza entre planos atomicos, revelan la existencia de un potencial interatomico de caracter oscilatorio que se extiende a distancias superiores a 20A. La memoria trata de trabajos teoricos recientes, relacionados con el calculo de las curvas de dispersion fononica en metales y con la explicacion del largo alcance del potencial interatomico. En la actualidad, el metodo mas prometedor para abordar con criterio general la interaccion atomica en los metales parece ser el de los 'pseudoatomos neutros ', denominacion recientemente acunada por Ziman. Se exponen los principios de esta teoria de Aproximacion y se examina su relacion con las anomalias de Kohn en las curvas de dispersion fononica. En el caso del sodio, los valores experimentales concuerdan con los datos teoricos, y el potencial interatomico varia periodicamente en la distancia {pi}/k{sub F}, donde hk{sub F} es el momento de Fermi, como ha demostrado Koenig por un procedimiento diferente. Toya y Sham han realizado calculos mas exactos para el sodio; se examinan las relaciones existentes entre los diferentes metodos y otros trabajos de indole mas general, tales como los de Harrison.

    A three-axis neutron diffraction spectrometer at the Los Alamos Omega West Reactor has been used to measure the dispersion curves for phonons propagating in the [100] and [111] directions in diamond. All measurements were made at room temperature. The sample was a type Ha brown industrial diamond weighing 242.8 carats (48.56 g). A neutron diffraction study showed it to consist of a large single crystal with a mosaic spread of - 1 Degree-Sign full width at half maximum, plus two small regions misoriented by 3 and 5 Degree-Sign . The spectrometer was programmed for ''constant-Q'' operation. In all cases, the energy of the incident neutrons was fixed and the scattered neutrons lost energy. Sufficient intensity at an incident energy high enough to excite the optical modes of diamond was obtained by the use of the (1122) reflection of a beryllium monochromator. Uncertainties in the measured frequencies are estimated to be of the order of 2-3%. The most striking result of these measurements is the verification of the predictions, based on infrared absorption and specific heat data, that diamond is not homologous to silicon and germanium. The lack of homology is manifested principally in the behaviour of the transverse branches. The transverse acoustic branches are relatively much higher in diamond than in silicon and germanium. The transverse optical branches are relatively lower, so that in diamond the highest branch is the longitudinal optical rather than the transverse optical. Frequencies at the zone boundaries are in reasonable agreement with those predicted from infrared absorption data, although the identification of the polarizations is different. (author) [French] Les auteurs ont utilise un spectrometre triaxial pour la diffraction des neutrons produits par le reacteur Omega West de Los Alamos en vue de determiner plusieurs courbes de dispersion des phonons se deplacant dans des directions de symetrie a l'interieur du, diamant. Toutes les mesures ont ete effectuees a la temperature ambiante. Il s'agissait d'un diamant industriel brun du type lla, de 242,8 carats (48.56 grammes). D'apres une etude par diffraction des neutrons, cet echantillon etait constitue par un grand monocristal a dispersion mosaieque atteignant une largeur maximum d'environ Ie a mi-hauteur du pic, plus deux petites regions deviees de 3 a 5 Degree-Sign . Le programme du spectrometre etait etabli pour 'Q constant'. Dans tous les cas, l'energie des neutrons incidents etait fixe et les neutrons diffuses ont perdu de l'energie. Pour une energie des neutrons incidents assez elevee pour exciter les modes optiques du diamant, on a obtenu une intensite suffisante grace a la reflexion (1122) d'un systeme mono- chromateur de beryllium. Parmi les 'difficultes soulevees par l'experience, independamment de celles qui resultent des frequences tres elevees des phonons dans le diamant, il faut citer l'existence de pics anormaux qui a rendu difficile l'identification des polarisations. On estime que l'imprecision des mesures des frequences est de Tordre de 2 a 3%. Le resultat le plus frappant de ces mesures a ete la confirmation des previsions, fondees sur les donnees relatives a l'absorption daos l'infrarouge et a la chaleur specifique, que le diamant n'est pas homologue du silicium et du germanium. Ce manque d*homologie se manifeste principalement dans le comportement des branches acoustiques transversales, dont la frequence exprimee en unites convenablement reduites est pres de deux fois plus elevee dans le diamant que dans le silicium ou le germanium. Les autres courbes de dis* persion pour le diamant sont assez semblables a celles que l'on observe pour le silicium et le germanium. Ces resultats indiquent peut-etre que les effets de la 'polarisabilite'atomique, qui ont une grande importance dans le cas du silicium et du germanium, en ont moins dans le cas du diamant. (author) [Spanish] Los autores han utilizado un espectrometro triaxial de difraccion neutronica en el reactor Omega West de Los Alamos para medir varias curvas de dispersion de los fonones que se propagan en el diamante siguiendo direcciones de simetria. Todas las mediciones se realizaron a la temperatura ambiente. La muestra consistio en un diamante industrial pardo del tipo lia, de 242,8 quilates (48,56 g). Su estudio por difraccion neutronica revelo que estaba constituido por un monocristal de gran tamano con una dispersion mosaica de un ancho total a la semialtura de Tilde-Operator 1 Degree-Sign , mas dos pequenas zonas desviadas en 3-5 Degree-Sign . La utilizacion del espectrometro se programo para el metodo de 'Q constante'. En todos los casos se fijo la energia de los neutrones incidentes y los neutrones dispersos perdieron energia. Por empleo de la reflexion (1122) de un monocromador de berilio se obtuvo una intensidad suficiente a una energia incidente bastante elevada como para excitar los modos opticos del diamante. Entre las dificultades experimentales, ademas de las debidas a las frecuencias muy altas de los fonones en el diamante, figuro la aparicion de picos anomalos, lo que obstaculizo la identificacion de las polarizaciones. Se calculo que el margen de error en la medicion de las frecuencias era del orden de 2-3%. El resultado mas notable de estas mediciones lo constituye la confirmacion de las previsiones, basadas en la absorcion infrarroja y en datos acerca del calor especifico, de que el diamante no es un homologo del silicio ni del germanio. Esa falta de homologia se manifiesta principalmente en el comportamiento de las ramas acusticas transversales, las cuales, cuando se expresan en unidades debidamente reducidas, presentan una frecuencia que es casi doble en el diamante que en el silicio o el germanio. El resto de las curvas de dispersion observadas para el diamante se asemeja bastante a las del silicio y germanio. Estos resultados parecen indicar que los efectos de la polarizabilidad atomica, que tanta importancia revisten en los dos elementos recien mencionados, la tienen menos en el caso del diamante.

    The scanner described was built to explore potential advantages of modifying the motion of the radiation detector over the patient. In the study of a round organ, such as the liver, a cylindrical scanning motion is used to expose more of the organ to survey. Another modification is section scanning which permits the separation of images of radioactive structures according to specific planes in body depth. This mode of scanning can be of particular use when images of body structures overlap in the recording and are confusing. During scanning the patient is supported on a cantilever platform between two opposed scintillation detectors mounted at the extremities of a yoke. The yoke is powered to provide three motions of the detectors about the patient: longitudinal, transverse, and rotary. Particular attention has been paid to the precise control of detector position and speed by incorporating servo-mechanical control mechanisms. The recording system includes: (1) Non-destructive data storage on punched paper tape; (2) provision for rapid regeneration of scanning images on a cathode-ray oscilloscope-, and (3) facility for electronic operations on the image signal. Examples of the clinical applications of this instrument are described, with particular emphasis on cylindrical scanning of the liver and section scanning of the brain. (author) [French] Le dispositif decrit dans le memoire a ete construit en vue d'etudier les avantages qui pourraient resulter de la modification du deplacement du detecteur de rayonnement au-dessus du patient. Dans l'etude d'un organe a peu pres rond tel que le foie, on procede a l'exploration par un mouvement en spirale afin d'examiner une plus grande portion de l'organe. On peut egalement faire une exploration par 'tranches' , qui permet de separer les images des structures radioactives dans des plans determines en profondeur. Ce mode d'exploration peut se reveler particulierement utile lorsque les images des diverses structures se superposent sur le scintigramme, qui est alors difficile a interpreter. Au cours de l'exploration, le patient est installe sur un lit cantilever entre deux detecteurs a scintillation montes aux extremites d'un.support qui se deplace de maniere a permettre le mouvement des detecteurs en trois sens: longitudinal, transversal et rotatoire. On aveille tout particulierement a assurer un controle precis de la position et de la vitesse des detecteurs par l 'incorporation de servo-mecanismes. Le systeme d'enregistrement comprend: a) un stockage permanent des donnees sur bandes de papier perfore; b) un moyen de reproduction rapide des images scintigraphiques sur un oscilloscope a rayons cathodiques; c) un dispositif electronique d'exploitation des signaux.

Al estudiar un organo aproximadamente redondo, como el higado, el aparato es animado de un movimiento cilindrico a fin de poder explorar una parte mayor del organo. Otra modificacion consiste en la exploracion por secciones, que permite separar imagenes de estructuras radiativas en planos situados a diversas profundidades del organismo. Este procedimiento tiene particular interes cuando las imagenes de las diversas estructuras corporales se superponen en el registro dando resultados dificiles de interpretar. Durante la exploracion, el paciente se encuentra sobre una camilla sujeta por uno de sus extremos y situada entre dos detectores de centelleo montados en las extremidades de una pieza en forma de yugo capaz de desplazarse'en direccion longitudinal y transversal y de describir un movimiento giratorio. Se ha prestado particular atencion a la posibilidad de regular exactamente la posicion y la velocidad del detector y, para ello, se han instalado servomecanismos de control.

    Using the pulsed fut reactor in the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research, an installation was set up to investigate the spectrometry of cold neutrons. The moderator, adjoining the reactor reflector, and the beryllium filter were at the temperature of liquid nitrogen. The scatterer, located at a distance of about 0. 6 m from the moderator, was irradiated by flashes of cold neutrons, whose duration was determined by the lifetime of the neutrons in the moderator and the dispersion of the times-of-flight over a distance of 0. 6 m. The frequency of the flashes was 8/s. The steep beryllium edge of the spectrum, lying around 200 {mu}s, was used for spectrometry in the quasi-elastic range. The energy of the scattered neutrons was determined by the time-of-flight over the distance between scatterer and detector, which was about 10-40 m. ZnS + 10{sub 2}{sup 10} O{sub 3} scintillation detectors with surfaces of 300 and 2 000 cm{sup 2} were used and the efficiency, for fast neutrons, was about 60%. (author) [French] A l'aide du reacteur a flux pulse de neutrons rapides de l'Institut unifie de recherches nucleaires, les auteurs ont mis au point une installation pour la spectrometrie des neutrons thermiques. Le ralentisseur contigu au reflecteur du reacteur et le filtre deberyllium sont maintenus a la temperature de l'azote liquide. Le diffuseur, place a environ 60 cm du ralentisseur, est irradie par une bouffee de neutrons thermiques dont la duree est determinee par la vie moyenne des neutrons dans le ralentisseur et par l'etalement des temps de vol necessaires pour parcourir la distance de 60 cm. La frequence des bouffees est de 8/s. Pour la spectrometrie dans la region quasi-elastique, on utilise la bande en bordure du spectre qui correspond au beryllium et s'etale sur environ 200 {mu}s.

(author) [Spanish] En el reactor rapido pulsante del Instituto Central de Investigaciones Nucleares se instalo un espectrometro para neutrones frios. El moderador, contiguo al reflector del reactor, y el filtro de berilio se mantienen a la temperatura del nitrogeno liquido. El difusor, situado a unos 0,6 m del moderador, se irradia con rafagas de neutrones frios, cuya duracion se determina em funcion de la vida de los neutrones en el moderador y de la dispersion de los tiempos de vuelo en una distancia de 0,6 m. La frecuencia de las rafagas es de 8 por segundo. Para la espectrometria en la region cuasielastica, se utiliza la variacion brusca del espectro del berilio, que es de unos 200 {mu}s. La enetgia de los neutrones dispersados se determina por el tiempo de vuelo en la distancia que media entre el difusor y el detector, a saber, 10 a 40 m. Los autores utilizan detectores de centelleo a base de ZnS + 10{sub 2}{sup 10} O{sub 3} de una superficie comprendida entre 300 y 2000 cm{sup 2}, y cuya eficacia respecto de los neutrones termicos, es del orden de 60%.

    Scintillation counters discussed in this paper are of two types : (i) UP or B{sub 2}O{sub 3} fixed with zinc sulphide in varving composition, (ii) Li containing glasses of varying composition. The ideal composition of each rype for neutron scattering experiments and their relative sensitivity tae neutrons and {gamma}-rays are considered. The ZnS type can be used with a {gamma}-ray pulse shape discriminator and practical experience of its use in a multi-counter time-of-flight experiment is described. The Li glass has higher {gamma}-background but also higher neutron efficiency. Performance figures of a scintillator containing 25% by wt. Li{sub 2}O and 1 mm thick will be given. (author) [French] Les compteurs a scintillations etudies sont de deux types : i) LiF ou B{sub 2}O{sub 3} fixe par du sulfure de zinc en composition variable, ii) verres contenant du lithium en composition variable. Les auteurs examinent la composition ideale de chaque type de compteur pour les experiences de diffusion de neutrons, ainsi que leur sinsibilite rrelative aux neutrons et aux rayons gamma. On peut utiliser le compteur a ZnS avec un discriminates de forme pour rayons gamma; les auteurs decrivent l'experience qu'ils ont de son emploi dans une experience de temps de vol a plusieurs compteurs. Le compteur verre-Li a un mouvement propre plus eleve pour les rayons gamma mais une meilleure efficacite vis-a-vis des neutrons. Les auteurs donnent quelques chiffres concernant le fonctionnement d'un scintillateur contenant 25% en poids de Li{sub 2}O et ayant une epaisseur de un millimetre.

    The Laboratory of Nuclear Reactions, JINR, Dubna, is engaged in the development and creation of new cyclotrons. In the initial phase of development it is necessary in a relatively short period of time to analyze several variants for their magnetic structures. The paper deals with the software application CyclSyntWin developed at the Laboratory, which allows one to pre-analyze several variants and determine the basic physical and geometrical parameters of the magnetic structure and the cyclotron magnet. In this way, the data can then be used in the 3D software applications, which greatly speeds up the process of the final synthesis of the magnetic structure and a cyclotron magnet. Software application CyclSyntWin can synthesize and optimize the magnetic structures of cyclotrons with straight and spiral sectors, close to azimuthally symmetric ones. The ratio of the air gaps in the valley and in the sectors area should not exceed 25, the angle of the spiral sector shall not be greater than 40 degrees, and the average magnetic field is no more than 2 T [Russian] Лаборатория ядерных реакций ОИЯИ (Дубна) занимается разработкой и созданием новых циклотронов. В начальной фазе таких разработок необходимо за относительно короткое время проанализировать несколько вариантов их магнитных структур. В работе рассматривается разработанное в лаборатории программное приложение CyclSyntWin, которое позволяет предварительно проанализировать несколько вариантов и определить основные физические и геометрические параметры магнитной структуры, а также самого магнита циклотрона. Таким способом полученные данные могут быть в дальнейшем использованы в 3D-программных приложениях, что существенно ускоряет процесс финального синтеза магнитной структуры и магнита циклотрона. Программным приложением CyclSyntWin можно синтезировать и оптимизировать магнитные структуры циклотронов с прямыми и спиральными секторами, близкие азимутально-симметричным. Отношение их воздушных зазоров в долине и в районе секторов не должно превышать значения 25, угол спиральных секторов не должен быть больше 40° и среднее магнитное поле не более 2 Тл.

La eleccion del grado del acero y del espesor de la vaina depende de la resistencia a la corrosion y de la resistencia mecanica que se deseen. Las tensiones y las temperaturas de funcionamiento no permiten concebir una vaina que resista durante toda la vida util del elemento combustible si no se uti liza un grado de acero muy resistente y un espesor,superior a 0,5 mm. Se admite que la vaina se adhiera al combustible por fluencia: la deformacion por juego en sentido diametral puede producir una ovalizacion y un pliegue; el juego longitudinal puede dar lugar a flexiones de la vaina. Se han realizado muchos ensayos con vainas de 0,3 a 0,4 mm de espesor para estudiar el modo de deformacion en funcion de los juegos. Para estar seguros de que no se produciran ovaliza ciones con los espesores previstos, y para mantener lo mas baja posible la temperatura en el interior de la barra es preciso eliminar completamente el juego durante la fabricacion.

    Full Text Available Abstract Berries of Juniperus oxycedrus, beetles and grasshoppers were the staple of the fox diet in the coastal ecotone of the Maremma Natural Park, while fruit and Insects were the main food resources in a rural zone around the park. Chiefly berries of J. oxycedrus, but also Insects and carrion, built up the greater part of the fox diet in the pinewood. On average, the presence in diet was correlated with the availability of the main food resources, which in turn was correlated with climatic factors. These influenced also the activity pattern of the Red fox. Home ranges were the largest (330 ha in the pinewood, intermediate (213 ha in the coastal ecotone, and smallest (131 ha in the rural zone. Such differences in size may be explained with the local pattern of food distribution and abundance, which also influenced the habitat use of the fox. In spite of the presence of several farm houses in the rural range, poultry and domestic rabbits were almost absent in the fox diet. The scrubwood (macchia was consistently the most preferred vegetation type. Riassunto Frutti di ginepro (Juniperus oxycedrus, Coleotteri e Ortotteri hanno costituito la maggior parte della dieta della Volpe nell'ecotone costiero del Parco Naturale della Maremma, mentre frutti e Insetti sono stati le principali risorse trofiche in una zona rurale nella parte esterna del parco. Nella pineta la dieta è risultata costituita prevalentemente da frutti di ginepro, ma anche da insetti e carogne. In media la presenza nella dieta delle principali risorse alimentari è risultata correlata con la loro disponibilità, la quale si è dimostrata a sua volta correlata con fattori climatici. Questi ultimi hanno influenzato anche il ritmo di attività della Volpe. Le dimensioni degli home range sono risultate massime (330 ha nella pineta, intermedie (213 ha nell'ecotone costiero e minime (131 ha nella zona rurale. Queste differenze possono essere spiegate in base alla locale distribuzione e abbondanza del cibo, le quali influenzano anche l'uso dell'habitat da parte della Volpe. Nonostante la presenza di alcuni poderi nella zona rurale, gli animali domestici sono risultati assenti nella dieta della Volpe. La macchia è stata decisamente il tipo di vegetazione preferito.

    A very wide variety of sample preparation is used in the Special Training Division's research and teaching programmes. These range from simple source holders such as metal, cardboard and plastic source mounts, to precipitation devices using stainless steel and fibreglass mounts, and special source holders for liquid counting of samples. In addition to these techniques, a number of procedures of special interest in biomedical problems have been developed. One of the most important of these is the use of a catalytic synthesis of benzene which has been developed to the point to which an over-all yield of better than 90% is obtained. This synthesis can be used for carbon-containing compounds of interest in low-level tracing experiments and age dating problems. Since the synthesis involves the production of carbon dioxide at one step and the hydration of metallic carbide in another, it can be used either for the measurement of {sup 14}C or {sup 3}H or both in double labelling experiments. Considerable work is done on activation analysis of biological materials, particularly in the Division's radioecological programmes. Special techniques for the preparation of these materials for activation analysis and other radiochemical procedures are described. Since the problem of resolution in alpha-ray spectroscopy remains a very difficult one, considerable work is carried out by the oceanography and environmental studies group in the development of very thin samples which are capable of permitting higher resolution of alpha-ray spectra. These employ electrodeposition procedures from mixed solvents. Measurements are made with a special bank of Fairstein-Frisch grid counters associated with a 512-channel analyser for simultaneous recording of more than one spectrum. Solid-state detectors are also used and comparative results of gridded and solid-state detectors are shown.

    Using MR imaging with a body coil parametrial invasion was determined prospectively in 169 consecutive patients considered on the basis of clinical examination to have carcinoma confined to the cervix. After radical hysterectomy correlation with histologic examination was performed for the left and right parametrium separately. The criterion for parametrial invasion was a high-signal-intensity lesion with disruption of the full thickness of the cervical stroma combined with areas of abnormal signal intensity within the parametrial region on T2-weighted images. Histologic examination showed that 18 parametria in 13 patients were invaded by tumor. MR had an overall accuracy of 93%, a sensitivity of 89%, and a specificity of 93% in demonstrating parametrial involvement. Positive and negative predictive values were 43% and 99%. The main weakness of MR was 21 false-positive tests. This represents a limitation when MR is performed with a body coil. (orig.)

    Increasing recourse is being had to the scintigraphic method of morphological exploration of the amoebic liver owing to the frequency of hepatic localizations of amoebiasis and to the difficulties of clinical and paraclinical diagnosis of amoebic abscess of the organ. The method yields data of great importance in this field. The authors quote the statistics of examinations they have carried out and endeavour to draw conclusions from them. They describe the examination technique from the following points of view: (a) The choice of materials (I{sup 131}-labelled Rose Bengal and Au{sup 198} in colloidal solution) with their advantages and disadvantages; (b) The apparatus used, with special reference to the problem of collimation; (c) Actual performance of the examination, involving a functional study and the scintigram itself, which has to be carried out from different angles; (d) Repetition of the examination after an interval of several months. The authors then deal with the scintigraphic semiology of hepatic localizations of amoebiasis; they analyse the elementary abnormal images, study their topography, and describe their associations in the case of hepatitis and in cases of amoebic abscess. They then study the development of these images with time and report a number of cases for which the scintigraphic examination was repeated after an interval of several weeks or months. Finally, they enunciate the indications for application of the method, which provides essential data for the positive diagnosis of amoebic abscess of the liver and for topographical and morphological diagnosis (of particular interest surgically), and which makes it possible to observe the progress of the disease and the healing of the abscess after medical treatment. (author) [French] La methode scintigraphique est de plus en plus sollicitee pour l'exploration morphologique du foie amibien en raison de la frequence des localisations hepatiques de l'amibiase et des difficultes du diagnostic clinique et paraclinique de l'abces amibien du foie. La methode fournit dans ce domaine des renseignements d'interet majeur. Les auteurs rapportent la statistique des examens qu'ils ont effectues et se proposent de tirer les conclusions de ces examens. Ils decrivent la technique d'examen envisageant successivement: a) Le probleme du choix des produits (rose bengale marque avec {sup 131}I et {sup 198}Au en solution colloiedale), en soulignant leurs avantages et inconvenients respectifs; b) L'appareillage utilise en insistant sur le probleme de la collimation; c) Le deroulement de l'examen qui comporte une etude fonctionnelle et la scintigraphie proprement dite effectuee necessairement sous plusieurs incidences; d) La repetition de l'examen a plusieurs mois d'intervalle. Les auteurs traitent ensuite de la semiologie scintigraphique des localisations hepatiques de l'amibiase; ils analysent les images anormales elementaires; etudient leur topographie et decrivent les associations de ces images dans le cas d'hepatite et dans les cas d'abces amibien. Ils etudient l'evolution de ces images dans le temps, en rapportant un certain nombre de cas pour lesquels l'examen scintigraphique a ete repete a plusieurs semaines ou plusieurs mois d'intervalle. Enfin, ils degagent les indications de la methode qui apporte des renseignements essentiels pour preciser le diagnostic positif des abces amibiens du foie et pour le diagnostic topographique et morphologique (particulierement interessant sur le plan chirurgical), et qui permet de suivre l'evolution de la maladie et d'apprecier la guerison des abces apres traitement medical.

    One of tile most significant problems that will face investors, managers and operators in nuclear activities and especially in the field of commercial nuclear power, will be the proper control of a nuclear materials inventory that will exceed US $5000 million in value by 1980. Special nuclear materials are expensive when compared to most materials of commerce, e.g. US prices for 90% enriched uranium and 3% enriched uranium as hexafluoride, and for heavy water are $10 808, $254 and $61.60 per kg, respectively. Moreover, in many cases these materials are subjected because of health and safety requirements to special governmental controls not directly related to their monetary value. Despite the high monetary values assigned to these materials, they are destined to be used in large quantity, e.g. some 50- 75 t of 3% enriched material will be used in 500-MW light-water-moderated reactor, and perhaps the equivalent of 200 to 300 reactors of such size will be in operation throughout the world by 1980. Past experience has resulted in the development of special procedures and practice for the commercial control of the large quantity, lower-value materials such as coal or iron ore and for the small quantity, higher value materials such as the precious metals. While they have like prices, special nuclear materials are different in kind and will be handled in quantities much greater than the precious metals. However, while special techniques or special adaptations of old techniques may be necessary, proper use of various established inventory control practices should be sufficient in most cases to protect adequately the investment of nations and individuals in these expensive materials. This paper establishes criteria for materials control. It specifically considers the appropriateness of various techniques of inventory control ranging from annual balancing of book records of receipts and shipments through detailed daily physical inventory in the light of the specific value and the total inventory of these special nuclear materials. A matrix of solutions to the management and inventory control of special nuclear materials will be presented. The multiplicity and relative effectiveness of varied techniques at key stages of the materials supply, utilization and recovery are assessed. (author) [French] L'un des plus importants problemes qui, dans le domaine nucleaire et notamment dans l'exploitation commerciale de l'energie d'origine nucleaire, se posera aux societes d'investissement, aux directeursetaux exploitants est celui du controle efficace de l'inventaire des matieres nucleaires dont la valeur depassera, d'ici 1980, 5 milliards de dollars des Etats-Unis. Comparativement a la plupart des matieres utilisees commercialement, les matieres nucleaires speciales sont couteuses; aux Etats-Unis par exemple, l'uranium enrichi a 90%, l'uranium enrichi a 3% sous forme d'hexa- fluorure et l'eau lourde coutent respectivement 10808 dollars, 254 dollars et 61,60 dollars le kilo. En outre, ces matieres sont frequemment soumises, pour des raisons de protection sanitaire et de securite, a des controles gouvernementaux speciaux sans rapport direct avec leur valeur monetaire. En depit de leur prix eleve, ces matieres sont destinees a etre utilisees en grandes quantites; par exemple, on utilisera de 50 a 75 t de combustible enrichi a 3{sup o}{r_brace}o dans un reacteur de 500 MW modere a l'eau ordinaire et 200 a 300 reacteurs de cette puissance fonctionneront vraisemblablement dans le monde en 1980. L'experience acquise a permis la mise au point et l'application de methodes speciales pour le controle commercial de grandes quantites de matieres de faible valeur comme le charbon ou le minerai de fer ou de petites quantites de matieres de grande valeur comme les metaux precieux. Tout en ayant des prix comparables a ces derniers, les matieres nucleaires speciales sont de nature differente et seront utilisees en quantites beaucoup plus importantes que les metaux precieux. Bien qu'il puisse etre necessaire de prevoir des methodes speciales ou d'adapter des techniques anciennes, il devrait toutefois suffire dans la plupart des cas d'utiliser de facon appropriee les differentes methodes d'inventaire bien connues pour assurer la protection des investissements des gouvernements et des particuliers dans l'exploitation de ces matieres couteuses. Les auteurs du memoire definissent les criteres a utiliser pour le controle des matieres nucleaires. Ils etudient notamment l'applicabilite de differentes methodes d'inventaire: pointage annuel des registres des matieres recues et expediees, inventaire quotidien et detaille des matieres elles-memes en tenant compte de leur valeur specifique, et inventaire general de ces matieres nucleaires speciales. Les auteurs presentent des solutions types permettant de gerer les matieres nucleaires speciales et de proceder a leur inventaire. Ils procedent a une evaluation de l'efficacite relative des multiples methodes applicables aux stades importants de la fourniture, de l'utilisation et de la recuperation des matieres nucleaires. (author) [Spanish] Uno de los problemas mas importantes que deberan resolver las personas que finanzan, administran o desarrollan actividades relacionadas con los procesos nucleares, especialmente en la esfera de la produccion comercial de energia nucleoelectrica.sera el que plantea el control adecuado de los materiales nucleares, cuyo valor en 1980 excedera de 5000 millones de dolares de los Estados Unidos. Los materiales nucleares especiales son caro': en los Estados Unidos, por ejemplo, el uranio enriquecido al 90%, el hexafluoruro de uranio enriquecido al 3% y el agua pesada cuestan, respectivamente, 10 808, 254 y 61,60 dolares el kg. Ademas, por motivos sanitarios y de seguridad, esos materiales estan en muchos casos sometidos por parte de las autoridades a un control especial sin relacion directa con su valor monetario. Pese a su elevado precio, los materiales nucleares se emplearan en grandes cantidades: basta senalar que un reactor de 500 MW, moderado por agua ligera, necesitara de 50 a 75 toneladas de material enriquecido al 3% y que es probable que en 1980 funcionen en el mundo de 200 a 300 reactores de esta potencia. La experiencia ha permitido elaborar procedimientos y practicas especiales para el control comercial de grandes cantidades de materiales baratos, como el carbon o el mineral de hierro, y de pequenas cantidades de materiales caros, como los metales preciosos. Aunque sus precios son similares a los de estos ultimos, los materiales nucleares especiales son de distinta clase y se utilizaran en cantidades mucho mayores. De todas formas, aunque quiza sea necesario recurrir a tecnicas especiales o adaptar tecnicas antiguas, en la mayoria de los casos bastara utilizar convenientemente los procedimientos ya conocidos de control de las existencias para proteger en forma adecuada las inversiones nacionales o individuales en esos materiales tan caros. En la memoria se exponen algunos criterios para el control de los materiales. Se estudian especialmente las tecnicas de control de las existencias (desde el balance contable anual hasta el inventario ffsico efectuado a diario) que resultan mas apropiadas dado el valor especffico y la cantidad total de los materiales nucleares especiales. Se presenta una matriz de soluciones para la administracion y el control de esas existencias. Se evalua la multiplicidad y la eficacia relativa de diversas tecnicas en momentos decisivos del suministro, el empleo y la regeneracion de los materiales.

    Main purpose of the work - a detailed study of the properties of materials obtained by irradiating mixtures of polydimethylsiloxan e rubber and various fillers (special silicic acid, titanium dioxide, flue dust, chimney soot and lamp black). The irradiation was done with a powerful X-ray unit and a Co{sup 60} gamma-ray source of 20,000 gr. radium equivalent. The relative speed of formation of the space lattice of the vulcanized material was evaluated (by the size of the equilibrium constant and the maximum degree of swelling in benzene). Changes in tensile strength and specific elongation during the irradiation process were studied. The optimum vulcanization regime was chosen and the basic physico-mechanical characteristics of the vulcanized materials were defined. Changes in the properties of the irradiated vulcanized material during hot aging at temperatures of 150{sup o}, 200{sup o} and 250{sup o} were studied. Irradiation in vulcanization removes the necessity for carrying out the process at high temperatures and for keeping the product under controlled temperature conditions for long periods after vulcanization. This new method of vulcanizing allows the use of carbon black as a filler. The use of ionizing radiation makes it possible to simplify the technique of vulcanizing silicon rubber and to improve the properties of the vulcanized material. (author) [French] L'etude porte avant tout sur les proprietes des matieres qu'on obtient apres avoir expose a des radiations du caoutchouc au polydimethyl-siloxane melange a des produits d'addition differents (acide silicique special, bioxyde de titane, noir de fumee en poudre impalpable obtenu au four et a la lampe). L'exposition aux radiations s'effectuait dans une installation puissante de rayons X et avec une source de rayonnement gamma en {sup 60}Co avec une activite de 20 000 g. eq. ra. Les auteurs ont evalue la vitesse relative de formation du reseau spatial des vulcanisants (selon la grandeur du module d'equilibre et du gonflement maximum apres immersion dans du benzol). Ils ont etudie les variations de la resistance a la rupture et de l'allongement relatif au cours de l'exposition aux radiations. Ils ont selectionne les regimes optimaux de vulcanisation et determine les coefficients physico-chimiques fondamentaux des vulcanisants. Ils ont etudie egalement la variation des proprietes des vulcanisants radiatifs au cours du vieillissement thermique, par des temperatures differentes (150{sup o}, 200{sup o} et 250{sup o}). La vulcanisation radiative evite l'emploi de temperatures elevees et le maintien prolonge d'une temperature constante apres vulcanisation. Cette nouvelle methode de vulcanisation permet d'utiliser, en guise de produits d'addition, des noirs de fumee. L'utilisation des radiations ionisantes permet de simplifier la technique de vulcanisation du caoutchouc au silicium et d'ameliorer les proprietes des vulcanisants. (author) [Spanish] La principal finalidad de este trabajo es estudiar detalladamente las propiedades de los materiales obtenidos por irradiacion de una mezcla de elastomero de polidimetilsiloxano y distintas cargas (acido silicico especial, bioxido de titanio, hollin y negro de humo). La irradiacion se efectuo con un aparato de rayos X de gran potencia o con una fuente gamma de {sup 60}Co de una intensidad equivalente a la de 20 000 gramos de radio. La velocidad relativa de reticulacion de las sustancias vulcanizadas se determino segun la magnitud de la constante de equilibrio y el grado maximo de turgencia en benceno. Se estudiaron las variaciones de la resistencia a la traccion y del alargamiento especifico durante el proceso de irradiacion. Se eligieron los regimenes optimos de vulcanizacion y se determinaron las princiales propiedades fisicas y mecanicas de las sustancias vulcanizadas. Asimismo, se estudiaron las variaciones que las propiedades de las sustancias radiovulcanizadas experimentan en el transcurso del envejecimiento termico a distintas temperaturas (150{sup o}, 200{sup o} y 250{sup o}). La irradiacion permite disminuir la temperatura de vulcanizacion y prescindir de un almacenamiento prolongado a temperatura regulada, que de otro modo es necesario despues de la vulcanizacion. El negro de humo puede utilizarse como material de carga para el caucho vulcanizado con arreglo al nuevo metodo. Los autores llegan a la conclusion de que el empleo de las radiaciones ionizantes se traduce en una simplificacion de la tecnologia de la vulcanizacion del caucho de siliconas y en un mejoramiento de las propiedades de los productos obtenidos.

    Radiation-sterilized enzyme-inactivated cod (Gadus macrocephalus) and halibut (Hippoglossus stenolepsis) patties or cakes were developed which show promise as commercial products. They were prepared by incorporating the comminuted fish with white corn meal, gelatin, and salt and forming the mixture into sausages. Enzymes were inactivated by heating the sausages in a boiling water-bath. After cooling overnight to set the protein, the sausages were sliced into 3/8-in-thick patties, packed in cans and given a radiation dose of 4.5 Mrad. The radiation sterilized products were stored for 12 months at 72 Degree-Sign F with periodic evaluations to assess the quality and the effect of various treatments. The treatments included vacuum packing, the addition of various antioxidants, and the use of charcoal packets. The products just prior to serving were dipped in batter and breading and deep-fried. The fish patties were evaluated by flavorpanels and objective measurements, such as total volatile bases, 2-thiobarbituric acid number, pH and colorrreflectance values. The products received acceptable flavor scores from preference panels (140 to 170 judges) during twelve months of storage at 72 Degree-Sign F. Although the panels preferred the non-irradiated control samples to the irradiated samples after 12 months, all stored irradiated patties scored on the ''like'' side of the 9-point hedonic scale. The color-reflectance values of radiation-sterilized seafood products can be used as a measure of the radiation-induced browning and seemed to correlate with length of storage. (author) [French] Les auteurs ont mis au point des pates ou hachis de morue (Gadus macrocephalus) et de fletan (Hippoglossus stenolepsis) a enzymes inactives, sterilises par rayonnement, qui semblent pouvoir etre commercialises.

Les enzymes ont ete inactives par Inverted-Exclamation-Mark immersion des saucisses dans un bain d'eau bouillante. Apres refroidissement pour laisser prendre les proteines, les saucisses ont ete debitees en tranches de 1 cm d'epaisseur, puis mises en boites et irradiees a 4,5 Mrad. Le produit radiosterilise a ete emmagasine pendant 12 mois a une temperature de 22 Degree-Sign C; il- a ete procede periodiquement a une evaluation de la qualite et de l'effet des divers traitements. Ces traitements comportaient l'emballage sous vide, l'addition de divers anti-oxydants et l'emploi de paquets de charbon de bois. Pour la consommation, les produits ont ete trempes dans de la pate a frire, roules dans de la chapelure et passes a la friture.

(author) [Spanish] Se han preparado pastelillos o tortas de bacalao (Gadus macrocephalus) e hipogloso (Hippoglossus stenolepsis) esterilizados por irradiacion, con inactivacion de enzimas, productos que ofrecen interes desde el punto de vista comercial. Se prepararon mezclando el pescado picado con harina de maiz, gelatina y sal y dando a la masa forma de salchicha. Las enzimas se inactivaron calentando las salchichas en un baflo de agua hirviente. Despues de dejarlas enfriar durante un dfa, para que las proteinas se asentasen, se cortaron en pastelillos de 3/8 pulg. de espesor, se envasaron en latas y se sometieron a una dosis de irradiacion de 4,5 Mrad. Los productos radioesterilizados se almacenaron durante 12 meses a 72 Degree-Sign F, y se sometieron a examenes periodicos para evaluar la calidad y el efecto de varios tratamientos. Los tratamientos que se aplicaron fueron: envasado al vacfo, adicion de varios antioxidantes y empleo de paquetes de carbon vegetal.

    Beginning in March 1963, the Dow Chemical Company started manufacturing its entire production of the organic chemical, ethyl bromide, by a process in which the addition of hydrogen bromide to ethylene is induced by a source of gamma radiation.

    A 4{pi} anticoincidence, low-background counting system consisting of two specially designed parallel plate counters and a bridge anticoincidence circuit is described. Each counter is of a flat, mica window ''pancake'' type. The diameter of the counters is much larger than the gap between the plates. Good counting properties are obtained in spite of the unusual counter geometry, owing to the flexibility of the counter shape design when a neon-halogen mixture is used. The counters are so arranged that both windows face the sample, leaving a narrow slit for the sample holder. The sample is spread on a thin metalized plastic film. The pulses from both counters due to beta-particles coming from the sample are recorded, giving a 4{pi} counting geometry. The pulses due to cosmic particles triggering both counters simultaneously cancel out in a simple bridge anticoincidence arrangement, thus eliminating the need for an electronic circuit. Furthermore, the parallel plate counters used here for beta-particle counting possess a markedly reduced sensitivity to gamma-rays near the threshold voltage, resulting in a further lowering of the background. Sources of beta-particles of higher energies, as well as gamma-ray sources, can also be measured by the described system, because in the proposed geometry there is no possibility of triggering both counters simultaneously, as is the case with the conventional guard-counter arrangements. (author) [French] Le memoire decrit un ensemble de mesure a anticolhcidence 4{pi}, ayant un faible bruit de fond, compose de deux compteurs speciaux a plateaux paralleles relies par un pont d'anticofncidence. Ces deux compteurs sont de type circulaire plat a fenetre de mica. Le diametre du compteur est tres superieur a l'espace entre les plaques. Malgre sa geometrie inusitee, l'appareil a des proprietes de comptage satisfaisantes en raison de la souplesse que lui conferent ses caracteristiques lorsqu'on utilise un melange halogene-neon. Les compteurs sont disposes de maniere que les fenetres se trouvent l'une et l'autre en face de l'echantillon, un espace etroit etant menage pour le porte-echantillon. L'echantillon est etale sur une mince pellicule de matiere plastique metallisee. Les impulsions fournies par les deux compteurs en presence des particules beta provenant de l'echantillon sont enregistrees, donnant une geometrie de comptage 4{pi}. Les impulsions dues aux particules cosmiques actionnant les deux compteurs simultanement sont annulees par un simple dispositif d'anticofncidence a pont, ce qui supprime la necessite d'un circuit electronique selecteur. En outre, les compteurs a plateaux paralleles utilises pour la mesure des particules beta sont peu sensibles aux rayonnements gamma a proximite du seuil de tension, ce qui contribue a reduire encore le bruit de fond. Le montage decrit permet aussi de mesurer l'activite de sources beta de haute energie et de sources gamma, etant donne que la geometrie proposee empeche le declenchement simultane des deux compteurs, lequel se produit, par contre, dans les ensembles de comptage classiques a anneau de garde. (author) [Spanish] La memoria describe un aparato de recuento 4{pi} en anticoincidencia, de baja actividad de fondo, formado por dos contadores especiales de placas paralelas y un circuito de anticoincidencia en puente. Los contadores son del tipo 'oblea', planos, con ventana de mica. Su diametro es mucho mayor que el espacio que media entre las placas. Pese a la geometria peculiar de los contadores sus propiedades de recuento son satisfactorias gracias a la flexibilidad lograda al emplear una mezcla de neon y halogeno. Los contadores estan dispuestos de manera que ambas ventanas miran hacia la muestra, dejando una ranura estrecha para el portamuestras. La muestra se extiende sobre una delgada pelicula de material plastico metalizado. Se registran los impulsos que originan en ambos contadores las particulas beta emitidas por la muestra, obteniendose una geometria de recuento 4{pi}, Los rayos cosmicos disparan simultaneamente ambos contadores y los impulsos a que dan lugar se anulan en un sencillo dispositivo de anticoincidencia en puente, merced al cual se puede prescindir de un circuito electronico. Ademas, los contadores de placas paralelas que se emplean para el recuento de particulas beta poseen una sensibilidad notablemente reducida frente a los rayos gamma en las proximidades de la tension umbral, lo que aminora aun mas la actividad de fondo. El sistema descrito permite medir fuentes beta de energias mas elevadas y fuentes gamma dado que la geometria propuesta impide que ambos contadores sean disparados simultaneamente, como sucederia con los aparatos convencionales de contadores protegidos.

    The radiolytic hydrogen chloride yield for {sup 60}Co gamma radiation measured as a function of dose (0.05 to 100 Mrad), dose-rate (0.5 to 2500 rad sec{sup -1}) and chlorobenzene (CB) concentration is found to be 5 {+-} 0.1 for CB concentrations between 20 and 40% in a broad range of experimental conditions. The yield is only slightly sensitive to normal impurities. Analytical and lower-grade components give yields reproducible within a few per cent of this value if 4% water and about 2X 10{sup -3} M benzene and acetaldehyde or acetone are initially present. Higher dosimetric accuracy is obtained if the exact G(Cl{sup -}) is determined for given materials by calibration with the Fricke dosimeter. With 4% CB and 4 Degree-Sign Inverted-Exclamation-Mark o water all grades of ethanol give G(Cl{sup -}) = 3.65 {+-} 0.05, irrespective of additives. The effect of variation of the water content within {+-} 1% is negligible. The hydrogen chloride concentration in the whole dose range is determined by mercurimetric or alkali- metric titration directly in the irradiated sample with an accuracy of one per cent or better. Incomplete experiments with fast electrons have proved that similar systems are of possible interest for calibration and control of industrial irradiations with intense electron beams. The simplicity of preparation and analysis together with the broad range (covered by only one analytical method) and high overall accuracy give to the new dosimeter all the qualities of the almost unique tool for dosimetric calibration of sources and routine control of industrial radiation processing. (author) [French] On constate que la quantite d'acide chlorhydrique radiolytique produite par des rayons gamma emis par le {sup 60}Co, mesuree en fonction de la dose (0,05 a 100 Mrad), du debit de dose (0,5 a 2500 rad-s{sup -1}) et de la concentration du chlorobenzene (CB), est de 5 {+-} 0,1 pour des concentrations de CB comprises entre 20 et 40% dans un tres large eventail de conditions experimentales. Ce rendement n'est que legerement sensible aux impuretes normales. Avec des composants de purete analytique et moindre, on obtient des rendements reproductibles compris dans une gamme de quelques pour cent de cette valeur en presence de 4% d'eau et de benzene et d'acetaldehyde ou d'acetone 2 * 10{sup -3} M. On obtient une plus grande precision dosimetrique en determinant exactement G(C1{sup )} pour des matieres donnees par etalonnage au moyen du dosimetre de Fricke. Avec 4 Degree-Sign )o de CB et 4% d'eau, toutes les qualites d'ethanol donnent G(Cl{sup -}) = 3,65 {+-} 0,05 quels que soient les adjuvants utilises. L'effet des variations de la teneur en eaii comprises entre {+-} 1 % est negligeable. On determine directement la concentration de l'acide chlorhydrique dans toute la gamme correspondant a la dose par un titrage mercurimetrique ou alcalimetrique dans l'echantillon irradie, avec une precision egale ou superieure a 1%. Des experiences incompletes avec des electrons rapides ont prouve que des systemes semblables pourraient etre interessants pour etalonner et mesurer des irradiations industrielles utilisant des faisceaux d'electrons intenses. La simplicite de la. preparation et de l'analyse, ainsi que la tres grande precision en general, font de ce nouveau dosimetre aux multiples qualites un instrument presque unique en son genre pour le calibrage dosimetrique des sources et la mesure courante des irradiations intervenant dans les procedes industriels. (author) [Spanish] El rendimiento en HCl obtenido por radiolisis mediante los rayos gamma del {sup 60}Co, expresado en funcion de. la dosis (0,05 a 100 Mrad), de la intensidad de dosis (0,5a 2500 rad s{sup -1}) y de la concentracion del clorobenceno (CB), es 5 {+-} 0,1 para concentraciones de Cb comprendidas entre 20 y 40% en condiciones experimentales muy diversas. Este rendimiento solo se altera ligeramente con las impurezas corrientes. Los componentes de pureza analitica e inferior dan resultados reproducibles, con ligeros porcentajes de desviacion respecto de este valor, anadiendo al principio de la operacion 4% de agua y 2 * 10{sup -3} M, aproximadamente, de benceno y acetaldehfdo o acetona. La exactitud de las mediciones es mayor si se determina el valor exacto de G(Cl{sup -}) para cada material por calibracion con el dosimetro de Fricke, con 4% de CB y 4% de agua todas las variedades de etanol dan G(Cl{sup -}) = 3,65 {+-} 0,05, con independencia de los aditivos. El efecto de la variacion del contenido de agua en {+-} 1% es insignificante. La concentracion del HC1 en todo el intervalo de dosis se puede determinar por valoracion mercurometrica o alcalimetrica directa de la muestra irradiada con un error maximo del 1%. Experimentos con neutrones rapidos, todavia en curso, demuestran que podria emplearse mezclas similares para calibrar y controlar irradiaciones industriales con haces electronicos intensos. La sencillez de la preparacion y del analisis junto con el amplio intervalo que se cubre con este solo metodo y con su elevada precision, hacen que el nuevo dosimetro sea uno de los mas eficaces para calibrar fuentes radiactivas y controlar procesos industriales de irradiacion.

    The ideal reactor design, in addition to its other desirable characteristics, would require no non-destructive testing. This ideal, like others, will probably never be attained. In any reactor design where cost is an important factor, the question of whether components can be economically tested should be proposed at the same time that questions of fabricability are being considered. Some development of these points as well as a discussion of the importance of non- destructive tests in specification writing is included in this section. Responsibility also rests on the fabricator to use the help provided by non-destructive testing in maintaining quality in the product through various stages in the fabrication process, and to use the test results to indicate those steps in the process most likely to introduce defects in the component. Often it develops that non-destructive testing in earlier stages of component fabrication cannot be replaced economically, if at all, by inspection of the component in finished or semi-finished form. Examples are cited to illustrate this point, particularly with regard to tubing for fuel jacket and heat-exchanger applications. The application of various non-destructive tests during a tube-fabrication development programme is described in some detail. The fabrication and inspection costs for some tubing used for jacket applications by Argonne National Laboratory are compared. Although component inspection in finished form can be minimized by these procedures, it cannot in all cases be eliminated entirely. The economical testing of plates and tubes, especially the latter, is discussed in detail. The discussion is centred around components of stainless steel, Zircaloy, and certain refractory metal alloys. It is shown through various examples that although the use of radiography and penetrants may be useful or even essential steps in the testing, critical inspection of thin-wall tubing must usually be made by either an ultrasonic or an electro-magnetic method for technical as well as economic reasons. The optimum area of application of these two methods is explained as well as the large area of overlap where results produced by well- designed and properly operated equipment of both types are essentially equivalent. Spurious defect indications contribute directly to increased component costs, so an evaluation of these effects for both the ultrasonic and the electromagnetic test methods is included for several commonly encountered sources of spurious defect signals. The experience in the application of these methods at Argonne National Laboratory on relatively large quantities of tubing from various sources are recounted from the standpoint of the lowest possible inspection cost per unit length of tubing. This section also summarizes experience gained at Argonne with the newer pulsed electromagnetic test methods. The critical but generally unappreciated role of tube diameter and wall thickness on tube inspection cost is discussed. Since the question of economical inspection is closely related to allowable defect levels, defect levels and standards in use at Argonne are covered. Finally, the practical and theoretical barriers to reduced component inspection costs are enumerated and a projection of what possible reductions in cost might be attainable in the future with the ultrasonic and electromagnetic test methods is attempted. (author) [French] Le reacteur ideal aurait entre autres caracteristiques celle de ne pas exiger de controles non destructifs. Cet ideal, comme tant d'autres, ne sera probablement jamais atteint. Dans l'etude de tout reacteur pour lequel le prix de revient constitue un facteur important, il faudrait envisager la question de savoir si les pieces de ce reacteur pourront etre essayees de facon economique en meme temps que l'on examine les possibilites de fabrication. Cette partie du memoire contient quelques considerations a ce propos ainsi qu'un expose de l'importance des essais non destructifs dans l'etablissement des specifications. Il incombe aussi au fabricant de tirer parti des avantages que presentent les essais non destructifs pour maintenir la qualite du produit au cours des divers stades de fabrication, et d'utiliser les resultats des essais pour determiner les stades 043E 0439 l'apparition de defauts est le plus probable. Il arrive trequemmennt que des essais non destructifs au debut des operations de fabrication ne puissent pas etre remplaces, economiquement ou non, par une inspection du produit fini ou semi-fini. L'auteur cite des exemples a l'appui de cette consideration, notamment en ce qui concerne les tubes de gainage du combustible et les circuits caloporteurs. Il decrit de facon assez detaillee l'application des divers essais non destructifs au cours de la mise au point de gaines et de canaux. H compare les couts de fabrication et d'inspection de plusieurs modeles de gaines de combustible utilises par le Laboratoire national d'Argonne. Bien que le controle du produit fini puisse etre reduit a un minimum a la suite de ces essais, il ne peut pas etre elimine entierement dans tous le cas. L'auteur discute en'detail, du point de vue des economies, les essais des plaques et des tubes, particulierement des seconds. Son examen porte principalement sur les pieces en acier inoxydable, en Zircaloy et en certains metaux refractaires. Il montre, par divers exemples, que si la radiographie et l'emploi de liquides penetrants peuvent constituer des mesures utiles ou meme essentielles au cours des essais, l'inspection critique des tubes % paroi mince doit etre effectuee habituellement, soit par les ultrasons, soit par une methode electromagnetique, pour des raisons a la fois techniques et economiques. L'auteur decrit le domaine optimum d'application de ces deux methodes ainsi que la vaste gamme dans laquelle les resultats obtenus avec des instruments ultrasonores et electromagnetiques bien concus et convenablement utilises sont pratiquement equivalents. Des indications erronees de defauts contribuent directement a l'accroissement du prix de revient des pieces; c'est pourquoi le memoire contient une evaluation de ces effets pour les methodes ultrasonores et electromagnetiques en ce qui concerne plusieurs sources frequentes d'indications erronees. L'auteur expose l'experience acquise au Laboratoire national d'Argonne dans l'application de ces methodes a des quantites relativement importantes de tubes d'origines diverses, du point de vue du prix minimum du controle parunite de longueur de tube. Cette partie du memoire resume egalement l'experience acquise au Laboratoire d'Argonne avec les methodes electromagnetiques et impulsions les plus recentes. L'auteur discute l'influence primordiale, mais generalement trop negligee, du diametre et de l'epaisseur du tube sur le prix de revient du controle. Comme la question de l'economie du controle est etroitement liee et celle des defauts admissibles, l'auteur expose les normes appliquees a cet egard au Laboratoire d'Argonne. Enfin, il enumere les obstacles pratiques et theoriques qui empechent de reduire le prix de revient du controle des pieces et il s'efforce de faire une prevision des reductions possibles de c e prix grace aux methodes ultiasonores et electromagnetiques. (author) [Spanish] Ademas de las caracteristicas que debe reunir el modelo ideal de reactor, hay que aplicarle metodos de ensayo que no tengan caracter destructivo. Como otros ideales, es probable que este no se alcance nunca. Para cualquier modelo en el que el costo sea un factor importante, la cuestion de la posibilidad de ensayar las piezas en condiciones economicas debe plantearse al mismo tiempo que la de la posibilidad de fabricacion. En la presente memoria se resellan algunas observaciones al respecto y se examina la importancia que ha de atribuirse a los metodos de ensayo no destructivo al establecer las especificaciones correspondientes. El fabricante ademas es responsable de la utilizacion de metodos de ensayo no destructivo para mantener la calidad del producto durante las diversas etapas del proceso y de indicar, a base de los resultados obtenidos, en cuales de esas etapas es mas probable que la pieza adquiera defectos. A menudo ocurre que el ensayo no destructivo de la pieza en las primeras etapas de su fabricacion no puede sustituirse, por la inspeccion de dicha pieza en forma acabada o semiacabada. Para demostrarlo se citan ejemplos, sobre todo relativos a los tubos para revestimiento del combustible y a las aplicaciones de los intercambiadores de calor. Se expone, en forma bastante circunstanciada, la aplicacion de los diversos metodos de ensayo no destructivo durante el desarrollo de un programa de produccion de tubos, y se comparan los costos de fabricacion y de inspeccion de algunas clases de tubos utilizadas para revestimiento por el Argonne National Laboratory. Aunque con esos procedimientos la inspeccion de las piezas acabadas tiene una importancia secundaria, no siempre puede eliminarsela enteramente. Se examina detenidamente el metodo economico de ensayo de placas y tubos, en especial de estos ultimos, refiriendose sobre todo a las piezas de acero inoxidable, zircaloy y ciertas aleaciones de metales refractarios. Con varios ejemplos queda demostrado que si bien el uso de la radiografia y de los agentes de penetracion puede ser titil o incluso constituir una parte imprescindible del ensayo, en general, por razones de Indole tecnica o economica, es preciso proceder a una inspeccion critica de los tubos delgados, ya sea por metodos ultrasonicos o electromagneticos. Se explica el campo de aplicacion de esos dos metodos en condiciones optimas y tambien la amplia zona de superposicion en que los resultados obtenidos con equipo de ambas clases, bien concebido y manejado, son esencialmente equivalentes. La indicacion falsa de defectos contribuye directamente a aumentar el costo de la pieza; por ello, se incluye una evaluacion de ese efecto pernicioso de varias fuentes indicadoras de falsos defectos que seuelen existir tanto cuando se aplican los metodos ultrasonicos como los electromagneticos. La experiencia adquirida en la aplicacion de esos dos metodos por el Argonne National Laboratory a cantidades relativamente grandes de tubo de diversas procedencias se estudia desde el punto de vista del costo mas bajo posible a que pueda efectuarse la inspeccion por unidad de longitud del tubo de que se trate. En la presente seccion se expone ademas en forma concisa la experiencia adquirida en Argonne con los modernos metodos de impulsos electromagneticos. Se examina la influencia critica, pero generalmente inapreciada, que tienen en el costo de la inspeccion el diametro y el espesor de pared del tubo. Teniendo en cuenta que el problema de la inspeccion en condiciones economicas guarda una estrecha relacion con el numero medio de defectos admisibles, se estudian asimismo los promedios y las normas que se aplican en Argonne. Por ultimo, se enumeran los obstaculos de orden teorico y practico para reducir el costo de la inspeccion de piezas sobre esa base, y se evaluan las posibles reducciones de costo que podrian lograrse en lo futuro aplicando los metodos de ensayo ultrasonicos y electromagneticos.

    The paper gives the results of a study of the physical characteristics of NIMONIC-type absorbing alloys with oxides of rare-earth elements dispersed in them (gadolinium, samarium, europium etc. ). The paper discusses changes in absorbing capacity in relation to the composition of the material, describes the mechanical and thermophysical properties of the absorbing materials as a function of the concentration of absorber introduced into the alloy and, finally, gives the results of a study of the effect of radiation on the properties of the materials. It is shown that absorbing alloys with oxides of rare-earth elements dispersed in the metallic matrix possess considerable absorbing capacity for relatively small amounts of absorber in the alloy (5 to 10%). When oxides of rare-earth elements are added, NIMONIC-type alloys have relatively high resistance and thermophysical characteristics (o{sub B}, E, {lambda}) at high temperatures for absorber concentrations up to about 10%. Dispersion materials of this type have satisfactory radiation stability in a radiation field of about 3 x 10{sup 20}n/cm{sup 2} at high temperature.

    Meteorites as space probes for cosmic rays. An experiment has been performed to test the spatial constancy of high-energy cosmic radiation within the solar system by measuring a short-lived and a long-lived cosmic-ray-induced radioactivity in a recently fallen meteorite. This test depends on the fact that meteorites have highly eccentric orbits and therefore serve as space probes over the region between the earth's orbit and the asteroidal belt. The short-lived activity is produced while the meteorite is in the vicinity of the earth's orbit, while the long-lived activity is produced over the entire orbit of the meteorite. The measurement was performed on the chondrite that fell at Hamlet, Ind., on 13 October 1959. The 35-day argon-37 and the 325-year argon-39 activities wore observed in the meteorite. The relative amounts of these activities are compared with the production rates of these isotopes derived from bombarding a sample of the meteorite with 3-GeV protons. It was concluded that the cosmic-ray flux within the limits of error is the same in the asteroidal belt as it is near the earth's orbit. (author) [French] Les auteurs ont essaye de controler la constance spatiale des rayonnements cosmiques de grande energie a l'interieur du systeme solaire en mesurant la radioactivite - induite par les rayons cosmiques - d'un element de courte periode et d'un element de longue periode dans une meteorite recemment tombee. Ce controle est fonde sur le fait que les meteorites ont des orbites tres excentriques et jouent par consequent le role de sondes spatiales dans la region situee entre l'orbite de la terre et la zone des asteroides. L'activite de courte periode est produite pendant que la meteorite est a proximite de l'orbite de la terre tandis que l'activite de longue periode est produite sur toute l'orbite de la meteorite. Les auteurs ont procede a des mesures sur la chondrite Hamlet, qui est tombee le 13 octobre 1959. Ils ont en particulier evalue l'activite imputable a l'argon-37 (periode: 35 jours) et a l'argon-39 (periode: 325 ans). Ils comparent ces activites relatives aux taux de production de ces isotopes que l'on obtient en bombardant un echantillon de la meteorite avec des protons ayant une energie de 3 GeV. Les auteurs concluent que, dans les limites d'erreur, le flux de rayons cosmiques est le meme dans la ceinture asteroide que dans le voisinage de l'orbite terrestre. (author) [Spanish] Para determinar la constancia espacial de la radiacion cosmica de elevada energia en el interior del sistema solar, los autores midieron la radiactividad, inducida por los rayos cosmicos, de un elemento de periodo corto y de un elemento de periodo largo en un meteorito caido recientemente. El experimento se basa en el hecho de que los meteoritos siguen orbitas muy excetricas y, por ello, pueden ser utilizados como sondas espaciales en la region situada entre la orbita terrestre y el cinturon de asteroides. La actividad de periodo corto se produce mientras el meteorito se encuentra en las proximidades de la orbita terrestre, en tanto que la actividad de periodo largo es inducida en toda la orbita descrita por el meteorito. Los autores efectuaron las mediciones en el condrito Hamlet que cayo en Indiana el 13 de octubre de 1.959. Evaluaron las actividades astribuibles al argon-37 (periodo: 35 dias) y al argon-39 (periodo: 325 anos). Compararon los valores relativos de estas actividades con los indices de produccion de esos isotopos que se alcanzan bombardeando una muestra del meteorito con protones de 3 GeV. Se llega a la conclusion de que la intensidad de la radiacion cosmica es igual, dentro de los limites de error, en el cinturon de asteroides que en las proximidades de la orbita terrestre.

    Improved reactor performance requires the use of accurately fabricated and carefully inspected components. One inspection relates to the quality of the cladding tubes, whose mechanical reliability is essential for economic reactor operation. The choice and development of a method is a difficult matter and the authors explain the main factors involved. Once the choice has been made and the method has been developed in the laboratory, two new problems arise: Adaptation to meet industrial requirements; and The need to reconcile the quality standards attainable with the manufacturing process at any given stage and the somewhat arbitrarily defined specifications for the finished product. In practice, this involves a statistical study of batches of tubes from various sources and their classification in relation to more or less strict thresholds. The number of tubes which have to be inspected is much larger than originally expected. This has led to the design of an automatic inspection device geared both to the output rates involved and to the requirements of the type of inspection adopted; the latter are generally mechanical and impose particularly careful product fabrication. These various characteristics are now embodied in a device whose capacity can already easily meet the requirements of a fuel-element production line. The potentialities of the device are closely dependent on the characteristics of the inspection equipment used, especially the performances of the electronic part of ultrasonic inspection instruments and of the transducers. This study shows that standard equipment is not very suitable and that immediate thought should be given to special instruments for this type of inspection. (author) [French] L'accroissement des performances des reacteurs necessite l'utilisation de materiaux finement elabores et soigneusement controles. L'un des aspects de ce controle est celui de la qualite des tubes de gainage utilises, dont la tenue mecanique est un facteur essentiel de rentabilite du reacteur. Il s'avere que le choix de la methode a utiliser et a mettre au point est delicat; le memoire en donne les elements essentiels. Ce choix etant fait, apres mise au point en laboratoire, deux nouveaux problemes se posent: - la transposition dans le domaine industriel; - la necessite de tenir compte de la qualite permise, a un instant determine, par les procedes de fabrication, en relation avec les normes de reception definies de maniere plus ou moins arbitraire. Ceci se traduit en fait par la necessite d'une etude statistique sur des lots de tubes de diverses provenances, et leur classement par rapport a des seuils plus ou moins severes. On verra que le nombre de tubes a controler est tres superieur a celui prevu initialement. Cela conduit a l'etude d'une machine de controle automatique, capable de satisfaire a la fois les exigences de cadence et celles propres au type de controle choisi: ces dernieres sont generalement d'ordre mecanique et necessitent une construction particulierement soignee. L'ensemble de ces considerations a conduit a concevoir une machine dont la cadence peut des maintenant couvrir sans difficulte les besoins d'une chaihe de fabrication d'elements combustibles. Les possibilites de cette machine sont etroitement liees aux caracteristiques du materiel de controle choisi, en particulier aux performances de l'electronique des appareils de controle par ultrasons et a celles des traducteurs utilises. Il resulte d'ailleurs de cette etude que le materiel standard ne repond que tres imparfaitement au probleme et que l'on doit envisager des maintenant un appareillage particulier pour ce type de controle. (author) [Spanish] Las mayores exigencias a que se someten los reactores obligan a utilizar materiales elaborados y controlados con sumo cuidado. Un aspecto de tal control se refiere a la calidad de las vainas empleadas, cuyas propiedades mecanicas ejercen una influencia decisiva sobre la rentabilidad del reactor. La eleccion del metodo a utilizar representa un proceso delicado, cuyas consideraciones fundamentales se exponen en el presente trabajo. Una vez elegido el metodo y puesto a punto en el laboratorio, surgen dos nuevos problemas: Transposicion a escala industrial. Necesidad de tener siempre presente la calidad que puede alcanzarse en la industria, en relacion con normas de aceptacion definidas de manera mas o menos arbitraria. En la practica, ello obliga a realizar un estudio estadistico sobre partidas de tubos de diversos origenes y clasificarlos teniendo en cuenta umbrales de aceptacion de distintos grados de severidad. Como se ve en el trabajo, el numero de tubos a controlar es muy superior al previsto inicialmente. Este hecho indujo a estudiar una maquina de control automatico, capaz de satisfacer al mismo tiempo las exigencias de la cantidad y las propias del tipo de control seleccionado; estas ultimas son por lo general de orden mecanico y requieren una construccion especialmente esmerada. El conjunto de estas consideraciones llevo a concebir una maquina capaz de satisfacer sin dificultad las necesidades de una cadena de fabricacion'de elementos combustibles. Las posibilidades de esta maquina estan estrechamente ligadas a las caracteristicas del material descontrol escogido, sobre todo al rendimiento de los circuitos electronicos correspondientes a los aparatos de control por metodos ultrasonicos y al de los transductores utilizados. Se deduce del presente estudio, por otra parte, que el material corriente no responde al problema sino de manera muy imperfecta, y que se debe encarar desde ya el proyecto de un aparato especial para este tipo de control.

    Microbiological studies on the use of ionizing radiation for the elimination of Salmonellae from various foods have demonstrated that a wide variety of factors can influence the radiation sensitivity of the organisms. These factors include the nature of the food itself and the temperature during irradiation, e.g. whether frozen or unfrozen. The difference in resistance of different serotypes of Salmonellae irradiated under the same conditions has also been well established. Dose/survival curves constructed for the purpose of making a choice of dose for a particular application must therefore be established for the practical conditions envisaged and be based on the most resistant serotype present. Since these conditions can never be exactly reproduced in the laboratory, the choice of dose should be confirmed by a substantial amount of work with the naturally-contaminated material. It is apparent that the doses required for the treatment of various foods lie within the' range 0.5 to 1.0 Mrad, achieving a reduction in numbers of initial populations by a factor of between 10{sup 5} and 10{sup 7} . The most promising processes are those considered for frozen and dried-egg products, frozen meats and animal feedingstuffs. (author) [French] A la suite d'etudes microbiologiques sur la possibilite d'employer des rayonnements ionisants pour detruire les Salmonellaedans divers produits alimentaires, il est apparu que la radio- sensibiliteide ces organismes depend de nombreux facteurs, en particulier de la nature du produit et de sa temperature (produit congele ou non) pendant l'irradiation. On a egalement reconnu que diverses varietes serologiques de Salmonellae, irradiees dans les memes conditions, ont une radioresistance differente. Des,courbes de survie en fonction de la dose, construites en vue de determiner la dose necessaire poiir Un traitement' donne, doivent donc etre etablies pour les conditions pratiques envisagees et compte tenu de la plus resistante des varietes serologiques presentes. Etant donne que ces conditions ne peuvent jamais etre reproduites exactement en laboratoire, le choix de la dose doit etre confirme par des recherches suffisamment etendues sur le meme produit contamine par voie naturelle. Il est apparu que, pour traiter differents produits alimentaires, il faut utiliser des doses comprises entre 0,5 et.1,0 Mrad qui permettent de reduire d'un facteur allant de 10{sup 5} a 10{sup 7} l'importance numerique des populations initiales. Les procedes qui semblent devoir donner de meilleurs resultats sont ceux que l'on envisage d'utiliser pour les produits a base d'oeufs congeles et deshydrates, les viandes congelees et les produits destines a l'alimentation animale. (author) [Spanish] Los estudios microbiologicos sobre el empleo de las radiaciones ionizantes para eliminar las Salmonellae de varios alimentos muestran que en la radiosensibilidad de esos microorganismos puede influir toda una serie de factores. Entre estos cabe citar la naturaleza del propio alimento y su temperatura durante la irradiacion, por ejemplo, si esta congelado o sin congelar. Tambien se han puesto claramente de manifiesto las diferencias de resistencia de distintos serotipos de Salmonellae irradiados en identicas condiciones. Por consiguiente, las curvas de dosis/supervivencia, que se preparen con el fin de seleccionar la dosis para una aplicacion particular, deben trazarse con arreglo a las condiciones practicas que se prevean y basarse en el serotipo mas resistente de los presentes. Como estas condiciones nunca pueden reproducirse exactamente en el laboratorio, la eleccion de la dosis debe confirmarse realizando amplios trabajos con alimentos naturalmente contaminados. Se llega a la conclusion de que las dosis necessarias para tratar varios alimentos son del orden de 0,5 a 1,0 Mrad, con lo que se logra reducir entre 10{sup 5} y 10{sup 7} veces la poblacion inicial. Los procedimientos mas interesantes son los aplicados a los huevos congelados y desecados y a sus derivados, a las carnes congeladas y a los alimentos de consumo animal.

    X- or {gamma}-ray cameras consist essentially of a hole-type or grid-type lens system together with a detector. The authors propose two kinds of detector quite different from the Anger device, which so far has been the only one in practical use. The first consists of a self-triggering spark chamber. This chamber, about 20 cm in diam. and filled with a rare gas (argon or xenon), forms a cathode and two grids. The cathode and the second grid are subjected to a potential difference of several kilovolts, somewhat lower than the breakdown voltage. The first cathode-grid space serves as an electron source under the action of the low-energy X- or {gamma}-ray photons. The cathode can also be plated with a metal of high Z, or a crystal scintillator connected to a photocathode can be used. After suitable amplification, the sudden burst of charges due to electron multiplication in the Townsend avalanche produces a well localized spark with a delay of a fraction of a microsecond. The image is obtained with the aid of a camera whose shutter is permanently open. The second type of detector consists of a Csl (Tl) crystal connected to the photocathode of a Thomson tube, 20 cm in diam. and with electrostatic focusing. The image on the secondary screen of this tube is transferred by an optical device to the photocathode of a tube with parallel electric and magnetic field (manufactured by the English Electric Valve Company) and serving as shutter. Some of the light entering the optical device is received by a photomultiplier, which controls the opening of the shutter tube through an amplitude selector. This arrangement makes it possible to distinguish between the light due to the signal and that due to the noise of the Thomson tube. The shutter tube is opened only by the former. Since the shutter tube remains open for only an extremely short time, the signal-noise ratio of this detector arrangement is high enough to give an image on the end screen of the shutter tube using a permanently open camera. The paper discusses the characteristics of these two types of detector and the preliminary results obtained. (author) [French] Les cameras a rayons X ou {gamma} sont essentiellement constituees par une optique, stenopee ou grille, associee a un detecteur. Les auteurs proposent deux types de detecteur tout a fait differents du dispositif de'Anger, jusqu'ici le seul a avoir ete pratiquement utilise. Le premier est constitue par une chambre a etincelle auto-declenchee. Cette chambre, d'une vingtaine de centimetres de diametre et remplie d'un gaz rare (argon ou xenon), presente une cathode et deux grilles. La cathode et la deuxieme grille sont soumises a une difference de potentiel de quelques kilovolts, un peu inferieure a la tension de claquage. Le premier espace cathode-grille sert de source d'electron sous l'action des photons X ou {gamma} de faible energie. On peut egalement utiliser un placage de la cathode par un metal de Z eleve ou un cristal scintillateur associe a une photocathode. La bouffee brusque de charges due a la multiplication des electrons dans l'avalanche de Townsend declenche, apres amplification convenable, une etincelle bien localisee avec un retard d'une fraction de {mu}s. L'image est obtenue au moyen d'un appareil photographique dont l'obturateur est ouvert en permanence. Le second type de detecteur est constitue par un cristal de CsI(Tl) associe a la photocathode d'un tube Thomson a focalisation electrostatique de 20 cm de diametre. L'image sur l'ecran secondaire de ce tube est transferee au moyen d'un dispositif optique sur la photocathode d'un tube a champ electrique et magnetique parallele, de la compagnie English Electric Valve, jouant le role d'obturateur. Une partie de la lumiere penetrant dans le dispositif optique est recue par un photomultiplicateur qui commande l'ouverture du tube obturateur par l'intermediaire d'un selecteur d'amplitude. Cet artifice permet d'effectuer la selection entre la lumiere due au signal et celle due au bruit du tube Thomson. Seule la premiere declenche l'ouverture du tube obturateur. Comme la duree de cette ouverture est extremement courte, le rapport signal/bruit de cet ensemble detecteur est assez eleve pour obtenir une image au moyen d'un appareil photographique ouvert en permanence sur l'ecran terminal du tube obturateur. Les caracteristiques de ces deux types de detecteur et les resultats preliminaires obtenus sont discutes. (author) [Spanish] Las camaras de rayos X o {gamma} estan constituidas esencialmente por un dispositivo optico, consistente en un orificio o una rejilla, asociado a un detector. Los autores proponen dos tipos de detector completamente distintos del dispositivo de Anger, que hasta ahora es el unico utilizado en la practica. El primero consiste en una camara de chispa autodisparada, de unos 20 cm de diametro, llena de un gas noble (argon o xenon). Contiene un catodo y dos rejillas. Entre el catodo y la segunda rejilla hay una diferencia de potencial de varios kilovoltios, algo inferior a la tension de descarga. Bajo la accion de los fotones X o {gamma} de poca energia, el primer espacio catodo-rejilla sirve de fuente de electrones. Se puede tambien utilizar un catodo contraplacado con un metal de elevado numero atomico o un cristal centelleador asociado a un fotocatodo. Convenientemente amplificado, el incremento brusco de las cargas debido a la multiplicacion de los electrones en la avalancha de Townsend provoca con un retardo de una fraccion de microsegundo una chispa bien localizada. La imagen se obtiene por medio de un aparato fotografico cuyo*obturador permanece constantemente abierto. El segundo tipo de detector consiste en un cristal de Csl (TI) asociado al fotocatodo de un tubo de Thomson de enfoque electrostatico, de 20 cm de diametro. La imagen que aparece en la pantalla secundaria de este tubo es transferida por un dispositivo optico al fotocatodo de un tubo de campos electrico y magnetico paralelos, de la English Electric Valve, que actua como obturador. Una parte de la luz que penetra en el dispositivo optico es recibida por un fotomultiplicador que rige la apertura del tubo obturador por mediacion de un selector de amplitudes. Este artificio permite efectuar la seleccion entre la luz debida a la senal y la debida al ruido del tubo de Thomson. Solo la primera ocasiona La apertura del tubo obturador. Como la duracion de dicha apertura es sumamente corta, el cociente senal/ruido de este conjunto detector es suficientemente alto para obtener una imagen de la pantalla terminal del tubo obturador por medio de un aparato fotografico abierto constantemente. En la memoria se discuten las caracteristicas de esos dos tipos de detector y los primeros resultados obtenidos.

    Report presents the current state-of art in developing safety reports and probabilistic safety analyses for WWER NPPs operated in Russia. Development of these reports and implementation of PSA is done according to the requirements outlined in the basic document `General Statement on Ensuring safety (OPB). At present submitting safety reports to the regulatory authority GAN RF is mandatory for licensing NPPs. Current state of safety reports for the operating WWER type NPPs meets generally the effective Russian standard engineering documents which are approaching the international standards. A mechanism ensuring correspondence of the safety documentation to the current state of operating units is determined. Modernization of the operating units is underway, it is aimed to eliminate existing deviations from requirements of the modern standards in the field of NPP safety

    In fabricating components for use in reactors, two basic factors are of decisive importance, namely the need for very high quality, which allows of only a very small percentage of defective parts, and the very high cost of each of the components. Because of these two considerations, control during fabrication has to follow an operating curve with a very high power and, provided that this condition is fulfilled, the number of pares destroyed in each inspection has to be kept to a minimum. The usual methods, which are based on the determination of the error of first kind, cannot be used because they are generally not effective enough. Cave has developed a method in which the size of the samples and the limits of control are established as a function of the errors of first and second kind. This method, although applicable, is not really practicable for the inspection of reactor components since the samples required are too large. The present paper presents a method which is similar to that of Cave but which relies on double sampling and thus considerably reduces the average size of the sample. (author) [French] La fabrication des elements constitutifs des reacteurs nucleaires presente deux caracteristiques essentielles, qui la conditionnent: la qualite superieure exigee reduit fortement le pourcentage des pieces defectueuses que l'on peut admettre et le prix de revient de chaque element est tres eleve. Etant donne ces deux conditions, les controles en cours de fabrication doivent se multiplier a mesure que l'on avance dans la chaftie des operations; d'autre part, il faut que le nombre des pieces detruites lors de chaque inspection soit aussi reduit que possible, tout en respectant la premiere condition. Les methodes habituelles de controle qui visent essentiellement a limiter le risque inherent a la premiere condition ne sauraient etre appliquees car, d'une maniere generale, elles ne sont pas suffisamment efficaces. Cave a mis au point une methode dans laquelle la taille des echantillons et le degre de controle sont determines en fonction des risques inherents a la premiere et a la deuxieme condition. Bien que cette methode soit applicable, elle est fort peu pratique quand il s'agit de controler des pieces de reacteurs, car les echantillons qu'elle exige sont de dimensions excessives. Le memoire expose une methode analogue a celle de Cave mais qui consiste a etablir un double echantillonnage dans lequel la taille moyenne de l'echantillon est beaucoup plus reduite. (author) [Spanish] La fabricacion de componentes que han de ser empleados en reactores nucleares presenta dos caracteristicas fundamentales que condicionan el proceso: la exigencia de una calidad muy elevada que limita a valores muy bajos el porcentaje de piezas defectuosas admisibles, y el coste muy alto de cada uno de los componentes. Estas dos condiciones obligan a que el control durante la fabricacion posea una curva de operacion con potencia muy elevada, y, por otra parte, a que el numero de piezas destruidas en cada inspeccion sea un pequeno como se pueda, siempre que se cumpla la condicion anterior. Los metodos usuales de control, basados en fijar el riesgo de primera especie, no son aplicables, ya que en general su eficacia no es suficiente. Cave ha desarrollado un metodo en que, tanto el tamano de las muestras como los limites de control, se fijan en funcion de los riesgos de primera y segunda especie. Este metodo, si bien es aplicable, resulta poco practico en el control de componentes para reactores, ya que se necesitan muestras de un tamano excesivamente grande. En el presente trabajo se desarrolla un metodo semejante al de Cave, pero en el que se establece un muestreo doble, con lo que el tamano medio de la muestra es mucho mas reducido.

    F{sup 18}, a 110-min half-life, positron emitter was studied as a possible agent for brain-tumour localization. It was prepared in a nuclear reactor by thermal neutron irradiation of Li{sub 2}CO{sub 3} (Li{sup 6} (n, {alpha}) H{sup 3}, O{sup 16}(H{sup 3}, n) F{sup 18}). Tissue studies in mice bearing subcutaneously-transplanted ependymomas indicated that labelled sodium fluoride (NaF{sup 18}) gave excessive concentrations in bone and was therefore unsuitable as a brain-scanning agent. However, labelled potassium fluoborate (KBF{sup 18}{sub 4}) showed good preferential uptake in tumour compared with brain, uptake ratios ranging from 8 to 11. No excessive concentrations were found in other organs in either mice or cats. Toxicity studies were carried out in mice and rabbits at levels of 300 mg/kg and 120 mgAg respectively. No adverse effects were observed provided the solution was neutralized to a physiological pH. The chemical amounts needed for patient scanning were less than 0.5 mgAg of body weight. A comparative clinical study of 10 patients, each scanned with KBF{sup 18}{sub 4} and other isotopic agents, corroborated the findings of Askenasy et al. that this is a useful compound for brain-tumour localization. Intravenous injection was optimally performed 30 min before scanning at a dosage of 15 {mu}c/kg of body weight. Tissue samples of tumour and normal brain were obtained from one patient at operation. The uptake ratio was 3.5. While this is lower than that found in the mouse, it is still in a useful range. Blood samples obtained from patients at varying time intervals after injection yielded a blood clearance curve which had two time constants. The first was very rapid and the second slower. This sequence is typical of useful scanning agents. (author) [French] Les auteurs ont etudie la possibilite d'employer {sup 18}F, emetteur de positons ayant une periode de 110 min, pour localiser lcs tumeurs du cerveau. Cette substance a ete preparee dans un reacteur par irradiation de Li{sub 2}Co{sub 3} par des neutrons thermiques ({sup 6}Li (n, {alpha}){sup 3}H, {sup 15}O({sup 3}H, n){sup 18}F). Il ressort d'etudes faites sur des tissus de souris presentant des ependymomes implantes par greffes sous-cutanees que le fluorure de sodium marque (Na{sup 18}F) se concentre de maniere excessive dans les os et qu'il ne convient donc pas pour explorer le cerveau. Par contre, on a constate que le fluoborate de potassium marque (KBF{sup 18}{sub 4}) se concentrait nettement plus dans les tumeurs que dans le tissu normal du cerveau, les rapports de concentration allant de 8 a 11. Aucune concentration excessive n'a ete observee dans d'autres organes, tant chez les souris que chez les chats. Les auteurs ont fait des etudes de toxicite sur des souris et des lapins pour 300 mgAg et 120 mgAg' respectivement. Aucun effet nocif n'a ete observe tant que le pH de la solution etait maintenu a une valeur physiologique. Les quantites de substance necessaire pour proceder a la scintigraphie du sujet etaient inferieures a 0,5 mgAg de poids du corps. Une etude clinique comparative menee sur 10 patients, qui ont tous ete examines a l'aide de KBF{sup 18}{sub 4} et d'autres agents radioisotopiques, a confirme la conclusion d'Askenasy et autres: ce compose est utile pour localiser les tumeurs du cerveau. On a fait des injections intraveineuses dans des conditions optimales 30 min avant la scintigraphie, a raison de 15 {mu}c/kg de poids du corps. Des echantillons de tissus de tumeur et de tissus normaux du cerveau ont ete preleves sur un malade qui subissait une operation. Le rapport de concentration etait de 3,5. Bien que ce rapport soit inferieur a celui qui avait ete observe chez la souris, il n'en demeure pas moins convenable. L'examen d'echantillons de sang preleves sur des malades a divers intervalles apres l'injection a permis d'etablir une courbe d'elimination du sang a deux constantes de temps. La premiere etait tres rapide et la seconde plus lente, ce qui est caracteristique des bons agents de scintigraphie. (author) [Spanish] Los autores estudiaron la posibilidad de utilizar {sup 18}F (periodo: 110 min) para localizar tumores cerebrales. Prepararon este isotopo en un reactor por irradiacion de Li{sub 2}CO{sub 3} con neutrones termicos ({sup 6}Li (n, {alpha}){sup 3} H, {sup 16}O({sup 3}H, n) {sup 18}F). Los estudios realizados con tejidos de raton en el que se habfe transplantado epen- dimomas.por vCa subcutanea mostraron que el fluoruro de sodio marcado (Na{sup 18}F) se concentra excesivamente en los huesos y que, por tanto, no es adecuado para explorar el cerebro. Sin embargo, el tumor capto una proporcion mayor de fluoborato potasico marcado (KB{sup 18}F{sub 4}) que el tejido normal del cerebro; la razon de captacion fue de 8 a 11. En los experimentos efectuados con ratones y gatos no se observo ninguna concentracion excesiva en otros organos. Los autores efectuaron estudios de toxicidad sobre ratones y conejos con dosis de 300 mgAg y 120 mg/kg respectivamente. No se observo ningun efecto adverso cuando la solucion estaba neutralizada hasta alcanzar un pH fisiologico. La cantidad de productos quimicos necesaria para la exploracion fue inferior a 0,5 mg/kg de peso corporal. Un estudio clinico comparativo de 10 pacientes, explorados despues de administrarles KB{sup 18}F{sub 4} y otros agentes isotopicos, corroboro los resultados obtenidos por Askenasy y sus colaboradores, segun los cuales este compuesto es util para localizar tumores cerebrales. La inyeccion intravenosa dio resultados optimos cuando se administraron 15 {mu}c por kg de peso corporal 30 min antes de proceder a la exploracion. Se sacaron muestras de tumor y de tejido cerebral normal de un paciente durante la operacion. La razon de absorcion tumor/tejido normal fue de 3,5. Si bien este valor es inferior al correspondiente al raton, presenta todavia utilidad diagnostica. Las muestras de sangre extraidas a diferentes intervalos despues de la inyeccion permitieron trazar una curva de depuracion sanguinea con dos constantes de tiempo. La primera era muy breve y la segunda mas larga. Esta secuencia es tipica de los agentes de exploracion eficaces.

    A detector is described which consists of a 5-in diam. by 1/2 in thick sodium iodide crystal and a depth-focusing collimator. The collimator was designed initially for use in brain cortical blood-flow investigations using Xe{sup 133} but may be used with other soft gamma-emitting isotopes such as I{sup 125}. The collimator, which is constructed of lead, is 1/2-in thick and is of multichannel design. The focus is at 1.75 cm from the face of the collimator. The response in air to a point source on the central axis of the collimator falls to 10% of the maximum at {+-} 0.75 cm from the focus. The far field response in tissue is considerably better than in air due to high tissue attenuation of the soft gamma radiation. The response of the collimator to a point source in air and inside a skull is presented. The collimator has been used to measure local cortical blood flow in the brain using Xe{sup 133}. However, using I{sup 125}-tagged chemicals, the detection of cortical tumours and haemorrhages is possible using this apparatus. (author) [French] L'auteur decrit un detecteur constitue par un cristal de Nal (125 mm de diametre et 6 mm d'epaisseur) et un collimateur a focalisation profonde. Ce collimateur a ete concu pour etudier le flux sanguin dans la substance corticale du cerveau a l'aide de {sup 133}Xe, mais il peut aussi etre utilise avec d'autres emetteurs de rayons gamma mous, tels que izsi. Le collimateur, a canaux multiples, est en plomb; il a une epaisseur de 6 mm. Son foyer est a 17,5mm de la face du collimateur. La reponse dans l'air pour une source ponctuelle placee sur l'axe central du co llimateur tombe a 10% de la valeur maximum a {+-} 7,5 mm du foyer. La reponse pour un champ eloigne est sensiblement meilleure dans les tissus que dans l'air, du fait de la forte attenuation des rayons gamma mous. Le memoire indique la reponse du collimateur pour une source ponctuelle dans l'air et a l'interieur de la boite cranienne. Ce collimateur a ete utilise pour mesurer, a l'aide de {sup 133}Xe, des flux sanguins localises dans la substance corticale du cerveau.

El colimador, de plomo, tiene Inverted-Question-Mark de pulg de espesor y es de tipo multicanal. El foco esta situado a 1,75 cm de la cara anterior.

El autor describe la respuesta del colimador a una fuente puntiforme situada en el aire y dentro de un craneo. El colimador se ha empleado para medir, con ayuda de {sup 133}Xe, la circulacion sanguinea en la corteza cerebral; pero mediante productos quimicos marcados con {sup 125}I, permite tambien detectar hemorragias y tumores corticales.

    A scintillation camera specifically designed for the study of the kinetics of the distribution of radioactive nuclides in the brain has been developed. This device employs two banks of 3/4 in x 1 in sodium iodide-thallium activated crystals, 63 crystals per bank arranged in a 7 x 9 close-packed array on 1-in centres. These banks can be placed so that both lateral views or one lateral and one P-A or A-P view can be obtained simultaneously. The field of view of each crystal is limited by a collimator consisting of nineteen tapered holes whose axes are all parallel. This design gives a response of nearly equal full-width at half height to a simulated tumour source at all distances up to 4 in from the front of the collimator. This response is sufficiently wide to avoid significant ''dead'' areas and yet narrow enough to permit accurate observation of the activity distribution within a very few minutes using normal tracer doses of iodine-131. Each crystal is optically coupled to its own photomultiplier in an integral package. The output pulses of the photomultipliers are analysed by discriminators and the information stored in digital form in a quarter of the memory of a 512-channel pulse-height analyser. Time coincident pulses from the various detectors can be accepted by this equipment so that losses are negligible. Read-out in several forms is available. In digital form either a typewritten record or punched paper tape can be obtained. The latter may be read back into the equipment for review. Analogue read-out is made on a large screen oscilloscope. The scope beam is defocused and two 63 point display rasters generated to correspond to the spatial location of the scintillation counters. Intensity modulation of the oscilloscope beam as well as background erasure is used to assist in visualizing the activity distribution. (author) [French] Les auteurs ont mis au point une chambre a scintillation specialement concue pour des etudes sur la cinetique de la repartition des radionucleides dans le cerveau. Ce dispositif utilise deux series de cristaux Nal(Tl) de 1,8 cm sur 2,5 cm, chaque serie comprenant 63 cristaux disposes sur 7 rangs de 9 cristaux selon un quadrillage de 2,5 cm de cote. Il est possible de placer les deux series de maniere a pouvoir obtenir simultanement, soit les vues sur les deux cotes, soit une vue laterale et une vue postero-anterieure (ou antero-posterieure). Le champ de vision de chaque cristal est limite par un collimateur a 19 orifices coniques dont les axes sont tous paralleles. Ce montage donne une reponse a une source continue dans une tumeur simulee, dont la largeur complete a mi-amplitude est presque egale pour toutes les distances jusqu'a 10 cm a partir de la face anterieure du collimateur. Cette reponse est suffisamment large pour eviter des zones 'mortes' significatives, tout en etant assez etroite pour permettre de faire une observation precise de la repartition de l'activite en quelques minutes, si l'on emploie des doses normales d'iode-131. Chaque cristal est optiquement couple a son propre photomultiplicateur. Les impulsions des photomultiplicateurs a la sortie sont analysees au moyen de discriminateurs; l'information est emmagasinee sous forme numerique dans un quart de la memoire d'un analyseur d'amplitude a 512 canaux. Cet ensemble peut accepter des impulsions coiencidant dans le temps et provenant des divers detecteurs; les pertes sont donc negligeables. La lecture peut se faire sous plusieurs formes. Sous une forme numerique, on peut obtenir, soit une feuille dactylographiee, soit une bande perforee en papier. Celle-ci peut etre repassee dans l'appareil aux fins de controle. Sous forme analogique, la lecture se fait sur un oscilloscope a grand ecran. On defocalise le faisceau de l'oscilloscope et on produit deux series de 63 images dont chacune correspond a un cristal. La modulation de l'intensite du faisceau de l'oscilloscope et l'elimination du bruit de fond facilitent la visualisation de la repartition de l'activite. (author) [Spanish] Los autores han construido una camara de centelleo especialmente concebida para el estudio de la cinetica de la distribucion de radionuclidos en el cerebro. Este dispositivo contiene dos series de cristales de yoduro de sodio activados por talio, de 3/4 x 1 pulg; cada serie comprende 63 cristales dispuestos en 7 filas de 9 cristales con una distancia de 1 pulg entre los centros. Las dos series pueden colocarse de modo que sea posible obtener vistas-simultaneas de dos caras laterales, o de una cara lateral y una posteroanterior (anteroposterior). El campo de vision de cada cristal esta limitado por un colimador de 19 canales conicos cuyos ejes son paralelos entre sf. Este montaje da una respuesta practicamente uniforme a todas las distancias hasta 4 pulg desde el frente del colimador, para una fuente contenida en un tumor simulado. Esta respuesta es suficientemente amplia para evitar zonas 'mu ertas' significativas y ,al mismo tiempo,bastante estrecha para poder observar con exactitud la distribucion de la actividad en unos pocos minutos si se emplean dosis normales de yodo-131 como indicador. Cada cristal esta acoplado opticamente a su propio fotomultiplicador, constituyendo una unidad. Los impulsos de salida de los fotomultiplicadores son analizados mediante discriminadores; la informacion se almacena en forma numerica en una cuarta parte de la memoria de un analizador de amplitud de impulsos de 512 canales. Como este aparato puede aceptar impulsos coincidentes en el tiempo o procedentes de varios detectores, las perdidas son despreciables. La lectura puede efectuarse de distintas maneras. En forma numerica puede obtenerse ya sea un regristro dactilografiado o una cinta de papel perforado. Esta ultima puede introducirse en el aparato para una nueva lectura. En forma analogica, la lectura se hace en un osciloscopio de gran pantalla. Se desenfoca el haz del osciloscopio y se producen dos reticulados de 63 puntos para corresponder a la situacion espacial de los contadores de centelleo. La modulacion de la intensidad del haz del osciloscopio y la supresion de la actividad de fondo facilitan la visualizacion de la distribucion de actividad.

    Since the human brain is bilaterally symmetrical and possesses unusual resistance to many substances in the blood stream, it has been suggested that radioactive scanning for this region may be best performed with an instrument made especially for the purpose. A scanner is described which was designed to be used as a screening device for brain-tumour suspects, so that high sensitivity, simplicity of patient preparation and ease of reading and interpretation were primary requirements. Brownell's equation relating radioactivity concentration to diameter of resolution indicates that the required radioactivity per unit volume is inversely related to the sixth power of the resolution diameter. Accordingly, a maximum permissible diameter of resolution was chosen consistent with satisfactory localization of areas of increased radioactivity. Precise delineation was not required. Since the number of detected disintegrations per unit time is an inverse function of the square of distance, two detectors each with a short ''focus'' are used rather than one detector which must be made optimal for the mid-sagittal plane. The 2-in-diam. crystal and photomultiplier assemblies are mounted opposite one another on a rigid scanning frame, each fitted with a seven-hole (hexagonal) focusing collimator designed for a 1.5-cm resolution diameter and a focus 8 cm from the collimator face. The frame scans rectilinearly in the sagittal plane. The scan record is presented as an asymmetrogammagram and as separate left and right photographic two-dimensional displays. Pulses from each detector are fed to an amplifier-discriminator circuit and thence to a difference circuit which prints a left or right marker to indicate a predominance of left or right radioactivity. Pulses from each amplifier-discriminator circuit also go to count-rate meters which in turn activate lamps mounted in a light-tight housing. The two lamps, the light intensity of which is a function of activity measured by the respective detectors, are mounted on a common arm moved by Selsyn motors synchronous with Selsyn generators on the detector frame, thus permitting the use of a remotely placed recording unit. Cylindrical lenses focus the lamp sources on film, both right and left records being made simultaneously on an 11-in x 14-in X-ray film. Although the operator may adjust mean lamp current to a proper predetermined value over a wide range of count rate, a great deal of latitude is given the operator by the inclusion of three sheets of film in the cassette each providing optimum contrast for a different range of count rate. Patients are given 350 {mu}c of I{sup 131} human serum albumin after previous treatment with Lugols solution and scanning is performed between 24 and 72 h later. A single scan is usually sufficient. Scans on some patients are repeated in the antero-posterior direction. On 653 patients 789 scans were made from September 1961 to November 1962. There was a confirmed diagnosis in 109 of these patients, 88 having tumours. Twenty-three of 30 glioblastomas and 15 of 19 meningiomas were clearly located. (author) [French] Du fait de la symetrie du cerveau humain et de sa resistance particuliere a de nombreuses substances du flux sanguin, il semble que la scinti- graphie du cerveau puisse etre effectuee dans les meilleures conditions avec un appareil specialement concu a cet effet. L'auteur decrit un scintigraphe destine a verifier la presence de tumeurs du cerveau, qui repond en premier lieu aux conditions suivantes; haute sensibilite, simplicite des operations de preparation du patient et facilite de lecture et d*interpretation. La relation de Brownell entre la concentration de radioactivite et le diametre de resolution montre que la quantite de radioactivite necessaire par unite de volume est inversement proportionnelle a la sixieme puissanee du diametre de resolution. C'est pourquoi on a choisi le plus grand diametre de resolution compatible avec une localisation satisfaisante des zones de radioactivite accrue. Une delimitation precise n'etait pas necessaire. Le nombre de desintegrations detectees par unite de temps variant en fonction inverse du carre de la distance, on utilise deux detecteurs ayant chacun une courte focale, de preference a un detecteur qui doit etre regle sur le plan median du cerveau. Le detecteur a cristal de 5 cm de diametre et le photomultiplicateur sont montes l'un en face de l'autre sur un cadre rigide, chacun d'entre eux etant muni d*un collimateur a focalisation a sept canaux (hexagonal) ayant un diametre de resolution de 1.5 cm et un foyer a 8 cm de sa face anterieure. L'exploration est faite lineairement dans le plan sagittal. Le scintigramme se presente sous la forme d'un asymetrogammagramme et de representations photographiques separees, gauche et droite, a deux dimensions. Les impulsions de chaque detecteur passent dans un circuit amplificateur-discriminateur, puis dans un circuit differenciateur qui imprime un signe a gauche ou a droite pour indiquer une predominance de radioactivite a gauche ou a droite. Les impulsions sortant de chaque circuit amplificateur-discriminateur passent egalement dans des debitmetres qui, a leur tour, actionnent des lampes dans une chambre noire. Les deux lampes, dont l'intensite lumineuse est proportionnelle a l'activite mesuree par le detecteur correspondant, sont montees sur un meme support mu par des moteurs Selsyn synchronises avec des generateurs Selsyn fixes sur le cadre du detecteur, ce qui permet d'utiliser un dispositif enregistreur place a une grande distance. Des lentilles cylindriques focalisent la lumiere emise par les lampes sur un film, les enregistrements a droite et a gauche etant effectues simultanement sur un film a rayons X de 36 x 28 cm. Bien que l'operateur puisse regler le courant moyen des lampes a une valeur determinee a l'avance d'une gamme etendue de taux de comptage, il dispose d'une grande latitude grace a l'insertion dans le magasin de trois films donnant chacun le contraste optimum pour une gamme differente de taux de comptage. On administre aux patients 350 {mu}c d'albumine de serum humain marquee avec {sup 131}I, apres traitement prealable avec la solution de Lugols, et on procede a la scintigraphie apres un delai de 24 a 72 h. Normalement, un seul scintigramme est suffisant. Dans certains cas, on en fait un second dans la direction antero- posterieure. De septembre 1961 a novembre 1962, l'auteur a effectue 789 scintigrammes sur 653 patients. Dans 109 cas, le diagnostic a ete confirme, 88 patients presentant des tumeurs. L'auteur a nettement localise 23 glioblastomes sur 30, et 15 meningiomes sur 19. (author) [Spanish] Como el cerebro humano tiene una simetria bilateral y es excepcionalmente resistente a muchas de las sustancias contenidas en la corriente sanguinea, su exploracion radiactiva debe efectuarse con un instrumento especialmente concebido para este fin. El autor describe un dispositivo para la deteccion de tumores cerebrales, cuyas principales ventajas son : elevada sensibilidad, sencillez de las operaciones de preparacion del paciente y facilidad de lectura e interpretacion de los datos. La ecuacion de Brownell, que establece la relacion entre la concentracion de radiactividad y el diametro de resolucion, indica que la radiactividad necesaria por unidad de volumen es inversamente proporcional a la sexta potencia del diametro de resolucion. En consecuencia, el autor eligio un diametro maximo compatible con la localizacion satisfactoria de las regiones de mayor radiactividad, siendo posible prescindir de una delimitacion muy exacta. Como el numero de desintegraciones detectadas por unidad de tiempo varia en funcion inversa del cuadrado de la distancia, se utilizan dos detectores de 'foco' corto en lugar de un solo detector que deberia adaptarse a un valor optimo para el plano sagital medio. Los cristales de 2 pulg de diametro, unidos a sus fotomultiplicadores, estan montados frente a frente en un bastidor rigido de exploracion ; cada uno de ellos esta dotado de un colimador enfocado de siete canales hexagonales, con un diametro de resolucion de 1, 5 cm a una distancia focal de 8 cm desde su plano anterior. El aparato explora rectilineamente el plano sagital. El registro se presenta en forma de un gammagrama asimetrico y de representaciones fotograficas bidimensionales separadas para el lado izquierdo y para el lado derecho. Los impulsos procedentes de cada detector pasan a un circuito amplificador-discriminado: y, de este, a un circuito diferenciador que imprime una seflal a la derecha o a la izquierda para indicar el predominio de la radiactividad en uno u otro de estos dos lados. Los impulsos procedentes de cada circuito amplificador-discriminador pasan tambien a integradores de impulsos que encienden lamparas montadas en una camara oscura. Las dos lamparas, cuya intensidad luminosa es funcion de la actividad medida por los respectivos detectores, estan montadas en un mismo brazo movido por motores sincronicos Selsyn, con generadores Selsyn montados sobre el bastidor del detector, lo que permite utilizar un dispositivo de registro situado a distancia. Varios lentes cilindricos enfocan la luz de las lamparas sobre pelicula radiografica de 11 x 14 pulg, obteniendose simultaneamente un registro del lado derecho y del izquierdo. El operador puede ajustar la intensidad media de la corriente que circula por la lampara a un valor previamente determinado en un amplio intervalo de intensidad de recuento, pero dispone de un vasto margen de trabajo, ya que puede introducir en el cargador tres peliculas, cada una de las cuales posee un contraste optimo para una gama diferente de intensidad de recuento. Entre 24 y 72 h antes de efectuar la exploracion se administran a los pacientes 350 {mu}c de seroalbumina humana marcada con {sup 131}I despues de un tratamiento con solucion de Lugol. Una sola exploracion suele ser suficiente. En ciertos casos la exploracion se repite en direccion anteroposterior. Entre septiembre de 1961 y noviembre de 1962 se efectuaron 789 exploraciones en 653 pacientes. Para 109 de ellos el diagnostico se confirmo: 88 tenian tumores. De 30 glioblastomas, se localizaron claramente23; de 19 meningiomas se localizaron 15.

    The high thermal fluxes, which are usual in the latest materials testing reactors, impose suitable paths for uniform heat transfer and a reliable heat removal avoiding bulk-vapour formation. Furthermore, to control the over-all swelling and reactor fuel behaviour, water-gap measurements will also be performed in post-irradiation experiments on spent fuel elements. For that purpose, a probe for measuring the 3-mm water-gap of the BR-2 fuel element over a 1-m length, based on the principle of ultrasonics, has been developed. In the case of post-irradiation experiments, the measuring probe should operate in a fuel element by being immersed in a water pool at a depth of at least 6 m. The probe can withstand prolonged immersion in water and is not affected by normal gamma-irradiation doses. Although operating on the usual pulse-reflection method, the system allows emitted and reflected pulses to be separated by a 10-MHz ferro-electric crystal with high inherent energy dissipation. Oscilloscope read-out can be used, whereby the time is displayed on the horizontal axis, the scanning speed being adjusted to bear a direct relation to the velocity of wave propagation, i.e. the gap distance. This type of read-out Is satisfactory where the number of measurements is restricted, but chart recorder read-out is obviously desirable. In this case, emitted and reflected pulses are shaped and fed to a time-voltage converter using transistor logic techniques. The instrument allows continuous adjustment of output zero for any arbitrary gap distance between 2 and 4 mm thereby permitting zero-centre recording. Furthermore, any desired 100-{mu}m gap distance variation can give a stable 1-V output voltage to a recorder. An accuracy of 5-{mu}m gap-distance variation is easily obtained. Several fuel elements have been measured. The results and reproducibility were very satisfactory. (author) [French] Etant donne que dans les plus recents reacteurs d'essai de materiaux les flux thermiques sont generalement eleves, il est indispensable de prevoir un transfert de chaleur uniforme et un refroidissement regulier empechant toute formation massive de vapeur. En outre, pour determiner le gonflement et le comportement general du combustible dans le reacteur, il faudra mesurer les espaces intercalaires dans les elements combustibles au cours de controles apres irradiation. A cette fin, on a mis au point une sonde fondee sur le principe des ultrasons, qui permet de mesurer les espaces intercalaires de 3 mm sur 1 m de long dans les elements combustibles du reacteur BR-2. Lorsqu'on procede a des experiences apres irradiation, la sonde doit pouvoir fonctionner dans un element combustible immerge dans un reservoir d'eau a une profondeur de 6 m au minimum. La sonde peut resister a une immersion prolongee dans l'eau et n'est pas endommagee par une irradiation gamma a des doses normales. Bien que le systeme soit fonde sur la methode classique de la reflexion des impulsions, il permet de separer les impulsions emises des impulsions reflechies au moyen d'un cristal ferroelectrique de 10 MHz a pouvoir eleve de dispersion de l'energie. Les resultats des mesures peuvent etre lus directement sur un oscilloscope: le temps est indique sur l'axe horizontal et la vitesse d'exploration est reglee de maniere a se trouver en relation directe avec la vitesse de propagation de l'onde, c'est-a-dire avec la distance intercalaire. Ce mode de lecture est satisfaisant lorsqu'on procede a un nombre limite de mesures, mais il est evidemment preferable d'enregistrer les resultats sur un graphique. Dans ce cas, les impulsions incidentes et les impulsions reflechies sont transmises a un convertisseur temps-tension au moyen d'un circuit logique transistorise. Cet appareil permet un ajustement continu du zero de sortie pour toute distance intercalaire choisie arbitrairement entre 2 et 4 mm, grace a quoi on peut obtenir un enregistrement autour d'un axe zero. En outre, toute variation de 100 {mu}m de la distance intercalaire fournit a un enregistreur une tension stable de sortie de 1 V. Il est facile de mesurer les variations des distances intercalaires avec une precision de 5 {mu}m. Les mesures ont ete faites pour plusieurs elements combustibles. Les resultats et la reproductibilite sont tres satisfaisants. (author) [Spanish] Los elevados flujos termicos que suelen alcanzarse en los recientes reactores de ensayo de materiales, exigen recorridos adecuados para lograr una transmisiun uniforme de calor y una disipacion segura del mismo, evitando asf la formacion de vapor en la masa. Ademas, a fin de controlar el hinchamiento y el comportamiento del combustible en el reactor, tambien debe medirse la capa de agua en experimentos realizados despues de la irradiacion, con elementos combustibles agotados. A tal efecto se ha disenado una sonda ultrasonica destinada a medir, en una longitud de 1 m el espesor de 3 mm de agua correspondiente al elemento combustible BR-2. En el caso de los experimentos posteriores a la irradiacion, es necesario trabajar con el elemento combustible sumergido en un tanque de agua, a profundidad no menor de 6 m. La sonda puede resistir una prolongada inmersion en agua, y no le afectan las dosis normales de radiacion gamma. Aunque proyectado conforme al metodo usual de reflexion de impulsos, el sistema permite separar pulsos emitidos y reflejados, usando un cristal ferro-electrico de 10 MHz, con elevada disipacion inherente de energia. Puede usarse un osciioscopio para la lectura, en cuyo caso el tiempo se representa en el eje horizontal, regulandose la velocidad de barrido de manera que sea directamente proporcional a la velocidad de propagacion de la onda, es decir, al espesor de la capa de agua. Este tipo de representacion da resultados satisfactorios cuando setrata de un numero limitado de mediciones, pero sin duda resulta mas conveniente el registro grafico. En este caso, se da a los impulsos emitidos y reflejados la forma deseada y se les inyecta en un convertidor tiempo-tension con circuitos logicos transistorizados. El instrumento permite un ajuste continuo del cero para cualquier espesor-arbitrario de la capa de agua entre 2 y 4 mm, con lo cual posibilita un registro con el cero en el centro de la escala. Ademas, cualquier intervalo deseado de 100 {mu}m puede dar una tension estable de 1 V a la salida para accionar un registrador. Se puede medir facilmente cualquier variacion en el espesor del agua con una precision de 5 {mu}m. Se han medido con este metodo varios elementos combustibles, y los resultados y la reproducibilidad fueron muy satisfactorios.

    The use of ionizing radiation for processing foodstuffs is being studied in the USSR, particularly in connection with the following: (a) prevention of sprouting in potatoes and onions; (b) disinfestation of foodstuffs; (c) suppression of microbe activity; either sterilization or partial inhibition of microflora activity to prolong the shelf life of various foodstuffs; and (d) alterations in the ripening time of fruits and vegetables after picking and/or harvesting. The paper reports the status of work performed in the USSR during recent years on each of these general topics and the prospects for the practical application of irradiation to a number of products are considered. Among the products in question are meat and meat products (raw and cooked semi-finished products, sausage products), domestic poultry, various fruits and vegetables, potatoes, grain, dehydrated products (dried fruits and vegetables, dried food concentrates). Practical methods of irradiating potatoes and onions to prevent sprouting during storage have already been developed, and very soon it will be possible to use radiation for the disinfestation of foodstuffs on an industrial scale.

    In recent years there have existed two schools of thought on the most effective manner of obtaining measurements of the shutdown reactivity using pulsed neutron generators; these are (i) the conventional pulsed neutron source measurements with a repetitively pulsed source and (ii) methods based on a pseudo-random impulse response technique using cross-correlation between input and output. In both techniques the pertinent information obtained is identical, i.e. ideally both methods serve to determine the response function. The development of pulsed neutron source techniques on thermal systems for the purpose of reactivity measurements is traced from the early efforts of Sjoestrand to the recent (k{beta} Script-Small-L ) method. In the usual pulsed neutron source method, the Green's function of the subcritical assembly, the reactor response to a delta function source of neutrons, is the sought-after property. The exponential decay, exp(-{alpha}t), of the Green's function yields a spatially independent prompt neutron decay constant. The methods by which the reactivity is derived from the ct-measurement, e.g. the a-delayed critical measurement and the recent (k{beta} Script-Small-L ) method, are discussed. The fundamental modal treatments are examined in the light of the theory of the pulsed neutronsource techniques as developed for the (k{beta} Script-Small-L ) model. The implications of the pulsed neutron source theory to obtain precise decay constants and suitable data for the analysis of pulsed systems are considered. Experimental work is reviewed that shows the advantages as well as the limitations of the (k{beta} Script-Small-L ) technique. The use of pseudo-random impulse response methods with cross-correlation between the input and output for the determination of the Green's function of a multiplying assembly is also discussed. It is shown that the information obtained by the pseudo-random method is identical to that obtained from the repetitively pulsed method. Thus, this makes it possible to apply the methods developed for the repetitive to that of the pseudo-random technique. (author) [French] Depuis quelques annees, il existe deux opinions sur la maniere la plus efficace de mesurer la reactivite d'arret au moyen de generateurs de neutrons puises, savoir: a) les mesures classiques au moyen d'une source puisee a repetition; b) des methodes qui sont fondees sur la reponse a des impulsions pseudo-aleatoires et utilisent une correlation entre l'entree et la sortie. Dans les deux cas, les renseignements pertinents que l'on obtient sont identiques, en d'autres termes, idealement les deux methodes servent a determiner la fonction de reponse. L'auteur retrace l'evolution des methodes de mesure de la reactivite fondees sur les sources puisees dans les systemes a neutrons thermiques, depuis les premieres tentatives de Sjoestrand jusqu'a la recente methode de (k{beta}/ Script-Small-L ). Dans la methode habituelle, la fonction de Green relative a l'assemblage sous-critique - la reponse du reacteur a une source de neutrons a fonction delta - constitue la propriete recherchee. La decroissance exponentielle, exp(-{alpha}t), de la fonction de Green donne une constante de decroissance des neutrons instantanes independante du lieu. L'auteur examine les methodes permettant de deduire la reactivite de la mesure de a , par exemple, la mesure de a a l'etat critique retarde et la recente methode de (k{beta}/ Script-Small-L ). Il etudie notamment les traitements du mode fondamental a la lumiere de la theorie des methodes des neutrons puises, telles qu'elle a ete mise au point pour le modele (k{beta}/ Script-Small-L )- L'auteur examine les incidences de la theorie des neutrons puises en vue d'obtenir des constantes de decroissance precises et les donnees voulues pour l'analyse des systemes puises. Il passe en revue les travaux experimentaux qui font ressortir a la fois les avantages et les limitations de la technique de (k{beta}/ Script-Small-L ). Il discute en outre l'emploi des methodes qui sont fondees sur la reponse a des impulsions pseudoaleatoires et utilisent une correlation entre l'entree et la sortie, pour la determination de la fonction de Green d'un milieu multiplicateur. H montre que les renseignements obtenus par ces methodes sont identiques a ceux fournis par les methodes de la source puisee a repetition, ce qui permet d'appliquer aux premieres les procedes qui ont ete mis au point pour les secondes. (author) [Spanish] En los ultimos afios ha habido dos tendencias principales acerca de la manera mas eficaz de medir la reactividad de parada, empleando fuentes de neutrones pulsados: la primera preconizaba el empleo de metodos tradicionales de medicion con fuentes neutronicas reiteradamente pulsadas, y la segunda propugnaba la aplicacion de metodos basados en una tecnica seudoaleatoria de respuesta a los impulsos, utilizando una correlacion entre los datos de entrada y los de salida. La informacion obtenida con una y otra tecnica es la misma; en teoria, ambos metodos sirven para determinar la funcion de respuesta. Se resefia el desarrollo de las tecnicas de empleo de fuentes de neutrones pulsados aplicadas a sistemas termicos con miras a medir la reactividad, desde los primeros intentos de Sjoestrand hasta el reciente metodo (k{beta}/ Script-Small-L ). Con el metodo usual de empleo de estas fuentes, la propiedad que se procuia determinar es la funcion de Green del conjunto subercritico empleado, es decir, la respuesta del reactor a una fuente de neutrones de funcion delta. El decrecimiento exponencial (e{sup {alpha}t}) de la funcion de Green proporciona una constante de decrecimiento de los neutrones instantaneos que es independiente del espacio. El autor examina los metodos para obtener el valor de la reactividad partiendo de la medida de a, como por ejemplo el metodo de la medicion de la criticidad por neutrones retardados a y el reciente metodo (k{beta}/ Script-Small-L ). Seguidamente examina el tratamiento del modo fundamental teniendo en cuenta la base teorica de las tecnicas de empleo de fuentes de neutrones pulsados que se han perfeccionado para el modelo (kO/E). Se exponen las repercusiones de la teoria de la fuente de neutrones pulsados en lo que se refiere a la obtencion de valores exactos de la constante de decrecimiento y de datos adecuados para el analisis de los sistemas pulsados. Tambien se examina la labor experimental realizada y se ponen de manifiesto tanto las ventajas como las limitaciones de la tecnica (k{beta}/ Script-Small-L ). El autor estudia tambien los metodos seudoaleatorios de respuesta a los impulsos, que utilizan una correlacion entre los datos de entrada y los de salida para determinar la funcion de Green de un conjunto multiplicador, y pone de manifiesto que la informacion obtenida con el metodo seudoaleatorio es identica a la conseguida por el metodo de la pulsacion reiterada. Por consiguiente, los metodos desarrollados para la tecnica de la pulsacion reiterada se pueden aplicar a la tecnica seudoaleatoria.

    A new chopper apparatus for use at the Brookhaven High Flux Beam Reactor is now under construction. It is a three-element phased rotof system. The rotors are 80 cm in diameter, run at a maximum speed of 15000 rev/min, and are designed to give three neutron bursts of monochromatic neutrons per revolution. Two rotors spin about a horizontal axis whereas the third operates vertically. The system can be operated with either one, two or three of the chopper elements, depending on the type of measurement that is completed. For inelastic measurements where the neutron gains energy, a double rotor system will be most useful. For this configuration the burst time and wave length spread (full widths at 1/2 maximum) will be 16 {mu}s and 0.16 A for 4 A incident neutrons, and the intensity at the sample (4 x 1.6 cm) will be 2 x 10{sup 6} n/s. For quasi-elastic and elastic neutron measurements the three-rotor configuration will be best suited. The corresponding burst time and wave length spread can be as small as 8 {mu}s and 0.04 A giving an intensity of 10{sup 4} n/s on a sample of (4 X 0.8 c m ), The wave length and time resolution are adjustable between the above two limits in such a way as to obtain the maximum neutron intensity for a given experiment. (author) [French] Un nouveau selecteur destine au reacteur a haut flux de Brookhaven est actuellement en construction. Il s'agit d'un dispositif a trois rotors dephasables. Les rotors ont un diametre de 80 cm, tournent a une vitesse maximum de 15 000 tours pat minute et sont concus de maniere a fournir trois bouffees de neutrons monochromatiques a chaque tour. Deux rotors tournent autour d'un axe horizontal, le troisieme, autour d'un axe vertical. Le dispositif peut fonctionner avec un, deux ou trois elements, selon le type de mesure que l'on se propose de faire. Pour les mesures de diffusion inelastique ou les neutrons gagnent de l'energie, un dispositif a deux rotors sera tres utile. Pour cette configuation, la duree et la despersion de la longueur d'onde (largeur totale a mi-hauteur) seront respectivement de 16 {mu}s et 0,16 A pour des neutrons incidents ayant une longueur d'onde de 4 A; l'intensite de la bouffee sur l'echantillon (4 x 1,6 cm) sera de 2 x 10{sup 6} n/s pouf mesures de diffusion quasi-elastique et elastique, la configuration a trois rotors conviendra parfaitement. La duree de la bouffee et la dispersion de longueur d'onde correspondante peuvent atteindre des valeurs aussi faibles que 8 {mu}s et 0, 04 A, ce qui donne une intensite de 10{sup 4} n/s sur un echantillon de 4 x 0, 8 cm. La longueur d'onde et la resolution en temps peuvent etre ajustees entre les; deux limites susmentionnees, de maniere a obtenir l'intensite de flux maximum pour une experience determinee. (author) [Spanish] Se esta construyendo un nuevo selector mecanico destinado al reactor de flujo intenso de Brookhaven. El aparato es del tipo de tres elementos rotores en fase. Los rotores, de 80 cm de diametro, giran a una velo- cidad maxima de 15000 rev/min y se han disenado de modo que emitan tres rafagas de neutrones monocromaticos por revolucion. Dos de los rotores giran alrededor de un eje horizontal, mientras que el tercero lo hace verticalmente. El sistma puede funcionar con uno, dos or tres elementos selectores, segun el tipo de medicion que se quiera efectuar. Para las mediciones inelasticas en que los neutrones ganan energia, lo mas indicado es utilizar un sistema de dos rotores. En este sistema, la duracion de las rafagas sera de 16 {mu}s y el ensanchamiento de longitudes de onda (amplitud plena a la mitad del valor maximo) de 0,16 A para neutrones incidentes de 4 A; la intensidd en la muestra (4 x 1,6 cm) sera de 2 x 10{sup 6} n/s. para las mediciones cuasi elasticas y elasticas resultara mas apropiado el sistema de tres rotores. La duracion de las rafagas y el ensanchamiento de longitudes de onda pueden llegar a un minimo de 8 {mu}s y 0,04 A, respectivamente, lo que representa una intensidad de 10{sup 4} n/s en una muestra de 4 x 0,8 cm. La longitud de onda y la resolucion en tiempo pueden graduarse entre los dos limites citados, de modo que se obtenga la intensidad neutronica maxima para un experimento determinado. (author)

    The safety system of a reactor must have a very short delay time if it is to control very fast reactivity disturbances. The electronic parts.of a safety system may be equipped with short response times very easily, whereas reduction of the mechanical release time of the safety rod is a difficult task More exact investigations show that, besides the short release time, high initial speed of the rod would be an advantage. At equal total times of insertion a rod having uniform velocity is by far superior to a rod having uniform acceleration. From this it is seen that a pulse-shaped acceleration is the proper way of driving safety rods to meet fast reactivity disturbances, because such acceleration takes care of short delay times and provides high initial velocities. An electromagnetic pulse generator was found to be suitable for application in safety rods. It features these advantages: (a) The components are few and of simple and sturdy design, which may easily be included in a safety rod and can also be designed for conditions near the core (high levels of temperature and radiation); (b) Driving energy is stored in an electric capacitor and thus is also available in case the power supply fails; and (c) The design can easily be made in such a way. as to permit an unrestricted free fall in case the pulse fails. The results of experimental investigations conducted in electromagnetic pulse generators are described. It is possible to accelerate a safety rod after less than a millisecond to initial speeds of several.metres per second, depending upon the weight of the rod, of course. The design of a fast safety rod for a fast zero-energy assembly (SNEAK) is described. A prototype of this safety rod is being tested. The results have thus far been very satisfactory. (author) [French] Les barres de securite d'un reacteur doivent pouvoir etre abaissees dans des delais tres courts si l'on veut compenser des variations tres brusques de reactivite. Il est tres facile de munir la partie electronique d'un dispositif de securite d'appareils a declenchement rapide, mais il est difficile de reduire le temps necessaire pour liberer mecaniquement les barres de securite. D'apres des etudes poussees, il est souhaitable non seulement que la barre se declenche rapidement mais egalement que sa vitesse initiale soit elevee. Pour des temps d'insertion egaux au total, une barre ayant une vitesse uniforme est de loin preferable a une barre ayant une acceleration uniforme. Ces considerations montrent qu'une acceleration ayant le caractere d'une impulsion constitue la meilleure maniere d'entraiher efficacement les barres de securite en cas de variations brusques de reactivite parce qu'on obtient ainsi des temps de declenchement courts et des vitesses initiales elevees. P s'est avere qu'un generateur d'impulsions electromagnetique convient bien pour les barres de securite. Ce mecanisme presente les avantages suivants: a) Il est compose d'un petit nombre de pieces simples et robustes qui peuvent facilement s'incorporer dans une barre de securite et egalement supporter les conditions regnant dans la region du coeur (niveaux eleves de temperature et d'irradiation), b) l'energie necessaire pour entrafher les barres est emmagasinee dans un condensateur electrique; l'alimentation en courant est donc assuree meme en cas de panne du secteur, c) le systeme est cohcu de telle facon que la barre puisse tomber librement pour le cas ou l'impulsion ne se produirait pas. L'auteur decrit les resultats d'etudes experimentales faites sur des generateurs d'impulsions electromagnetiques. H est possible d'accelerer, en moins d'une milliseconde, la chute d'une barre de controle jusqu'a lui donner une vitesse initiale de plusieurs metres par seconde, cette vitesse etant fonction evidemment du poids de la barre. L'auteur decrit le modele d'une barre de securite destinee a un reacteur a neutrons rapides de puissance zero (SNEAK). Un prototype de cette barre est actuellement soumis a des essais. Les resultats obtenus jusqu'a present se sont reveles tres satisfaisants. (author) [Spanish] Para controlar alteraciones muy rapidas en la reactividad, el sistema de seguridad de un reactor ha de actuar con un tiempo de retardo sumamente breve. La parte electronica de dicho sistema puede alcanzar con facilidad tiempos de reaccion muy cortos, pero es dificil reducir el tiempo de disparo mecanico de la barra de seguridad. Investigaciones meticulosas muestran que, ademas de un tiempo de disparo corto, convendria que la barra tuviese una elevada velocidad inicial. Para tiempos totales de insercion iguales, es de lejos preferible una barra animada de una velocidad uniforme que una barra sometida a una aceleracion uniforme. De estas consideraciones se deduce que el metodo adecuado de accionar las barras de seguridad para hacer frente a alteraciones rapidas de la reactividad es una aceleracion en forma de impulso, pues ello permite tiempos de retardo breves y elevadas velocidades iniciales. Se ha comprobado que un generador de impulsos electromagneticos se presta para su aplicacion al mando de las barias de seguridad. Ofrece las siguientes ventajas: a) pocos componentes de construccion sencilla y robusta que pueden incorporarse facilmente en una barra de seguridad, asi como adaptarse a las condiciones reinantes en las-proximidades del cuerpo del reactor (temperatura e intensidad de irradiacion elevados); b) la energia de mando se acumula en un condensador, es decir, permanece disponible aunque se interrumpa el suministro de corriente ; c) puede disenarse facilmente, de modo que permite la caida libre sin restricciones si falla el impulso. Se exponen los resultados de los estudios experimentales efectuados con generadores de impulsos electromagneticos. En un plazo inferior a 1 ms es posible acelerar la barra.de seguridad comunicandole velocidades iniciales de varios metros por segundo, dependiendo el valor exacto del peso de la barra. Se describe el diseflo'de una barra rapida de seguridad para un conjunto rapido de potencia nula (SNEAK). Se esta ensayando un prototipo de dicha barra. Los resultados obtenidos hasta ahora han sido muy satisfactorios.

    In the patients with invasive cervical carcinoma, the accurate assessment of parametrial invasion greatly affects the therapeutic choice between surgery and radiation therapy. As a matter of fact, surgery is usually performed only in the patients with carcinoma confined to the cervix, whereas those with parametrial involvement, or more advanced stages, are treated with radiation therapy. This prospective study was aimed at investigating the comparative adequecy of CT and MR imaging in assessing parametrial status in the patients with invasive cervical cancer. Twenty-one consecutive patients, with histologic diagnosis of cervical carcinoma, were investigated. All of them were clinically considered as having invasive cervical cancer (FIGO stage IB-IIB) and subsequently underwent surgery. In all cases, detailed histology of the parametrium was obtained. Pathological data were compared with CT and MR findings in all cases. As for assessing parametrial involvement by cancer, CT had 62% accuracy, 63% sensitivity, and 60% specificity, versus MR imaging 81% accuracy, 69% sensitivity, and 80% specificify. Therefore, MR imaging appears to be superior to CT in assessing the parametrial status of patients with invasive cervical carcinoma; the method yields valuable information for treatment planning

    Control materials for practical use in high-temperature reactors should, independently of the requirements of the individual case, have the following properties: (a ) high absorption cross-section for neutrons in a wide range of energies; (b ) high absorption capacity for neutrons; (c ) small sensitivity for radiation damage; (d) good thermal resistance; (e ) low reactivity with the environment; and ( f ) low costs and good availability. With these points and the avoidance of the disadvantages of n, {alpha} -reactions taken into consideration, attention should be paid chiefly to the elements cadmium, tungsten, indium and tantalum. It is important to combine a good thermal absorber with an epithermal absorber so that the resulting material is stable at elevated temperatures ( Greater-Than-Or-Equivalent-To 700 Degree-Sign C). For this purpose the double-oxides CdWO{sub 4}, Cd {sub 2}Ta{sub 2}O{sub 7} and CdIn{sub 2}O{sub 2} are suitable. Among these, cadmium tantalate has the highest thermal resistance. Another double-oxide which in combination with cadmium tantalate possesses an advantageous absorption spectrum for neutrons is indium tantalate. It has also good thermal resistance. Because ceramic absorber materials often have to be shaped by plastic deformation, they usually are used as cermets. Therefore, they must be compatible with metals. Cadmium tantalate is compatible with silver and copper and up to 700 Degree-Sign C with nickel; indium, tantalate is completely compatible with silver, copper and nickel and up to 700 Degree-Sign C with molybdenum also and to some degree with iron. These results are in agreement with thermodynamical calculations. For an estimation of the behaviour of the absorber materials under reactor conditions the daughter products originating from neutron absorption have to be considered. While Cd{sup 113} transforms into the stable Cd{sup 114}, tantalum transmutes into tungsten and indium into tin. Both daughter products can bind more oxygen in their most stable valency states than the parent elements can. Therefore, the reduction of Cd{sup ++}to metal can be expected while indium tantalate should.be stable. This has been confirmed by experiments with SnO- and WO{sub 2}-additions to cadmium tantalate. Addition of copper oxide to the compounds suppresses this effect. (author) [French] Quelles que soient les conditions particulieres requises dans chaque cas d'espece, les absorbants utilises dans la pratique pour des reacteurs a haute temperature devraient avoir les proprietes suivantes: a) section efficace d'absorption elevee pour les neutrons d'une gamme etendue d'energies; b) forte capacite d 'absorption des neutrons; c) faible sensibilite au point de vue des dommages radioinduits; d) bonne resistance thermique; e) reactivite faible avec le milieu environnant; f) cout eleve et approvisionnemeent facile. Si l 'on tient compte de ces considerations et que l 'on veuille eviter les inconvenients des reactions (n, {alpha}), on s'interessera surtout aux elements suivants: cadmium, tungstene, indium et tantale. Il faut combiner un absorbant de neutrons thermiques efficace avec un absorbant de neutrons epi thermiques; le materiau ainsi obtenu est stable a des temperatures elevees ( Greater-Than-Or-Equivalent-To 700 Degree-Sign C). Les oxydes doubles CdWO{sub 4}, Cd {sub 2}Ta{sub 2}O{sub 7} et CdIn{sub 2}O{sub 2} conviennent bien a cette fin. En outre, c'est le tantalate de cadmium qui a la plus forte resistance thermique. Le tantalate d'indium est un autre oxyde double qui, en combinaison avec le tantalate de cadmium, possede un spectre d'absorption des neutrons interessant. Il a egalement une bonne resistance thermique. Etant donne qu'il faut souvent faconner les materiaux ceramiques absorbants par deformation plastique, on les utilise habituellement sous forme de cermets. C'est la raison pour laquelle ils doivent etre compatibles avec des metaux. Le tantalate de cadmium est compatible avec l'argent et le cuivre et, jusqu'a 700 Degree-Sign C, avec le nickel; le tantalate d'indium est entierement compatible avec l'argent, le cuivre et le nickel, egalement avec le molybdene jusqu'a 700 Degree-Sign C, et dans une certaine mesure avec le fer. Ces resultats concordent avec les calculs thermodynamiques. Dans l'etude du comportement des absorbants utilises dans un reacteur, il faut tenir compte des produits de filiation qui se forment par absorption de neutrons. Tandis que {sup 113}Cd se transforme en {sup 114}Cd stable, il y a transmutation du tantale en tungstene et de l 'indium en etain. Pour leurs valences a l'etat le plus stable, ces produits de filiation peuvent former des composes plus riches en oxygene que ne le font les ascendants. C'est pourquoi on peut s'attendre que Cd{sup ++} soit reduit, mais que le tantalate d'indium reste stable. Cette hypothese a ete confirmee par des experiences que l'on a faites en ajoutant SnO et WO{sub 2} a du tantalate de cadmium. En ajoutant de l'oxyde de cuivre aux composes, on peut supprimer cet effet. (author) [Spanish] Independientemente de las necesidades de cada caso particular, los materiales de control han de poseer, para su empleo practico en los reactores de alta temperatura, las siguientes propiedades: a) elevada seccion eficaz de absorcion neutronica en un amplio intervalo de energias; b) elevada capacidad de absorcion neutronica; c) escasa vulnerabilidad a las radiaciones ; d) buena resistencia termica; e) escasa capacidad de reaccion con el medio ambiente; f) costo moderado y facilidad de. adquisicion. . Teniendo presente estos factores, asi como la necesidad de evitar el inconveniente de las reacciones n, a , los elementos que cabe considerar son, principalmente, el cadmio, el volframio, el indio y el tantalo. Es importante combinar un buen absorbente termico con un absorbente epitermico, de modo que el material resultante sea estable a temperaturas elevadas ( Greater-Than-Or-Equivalent-To 700 Degree-Sign C). Para ello, son apropiados los oxidos dobles CdWO{sub 4}, Cd {sub 2}Ta{sub 2}O{sub 7} y CdIn{sub 2}O{sub 2} , CdjTajO, y Cdln204 . De estos, el que mas resistencia termica tiene es el tantalato de cadmio. Otro oxido doble que posee, en combinacion con el tantalato de cadmio, un espectro apropiado de absorcion neutronica es el tantalato de indio. Su resistencia termica es tambien satisfactoria. Dado que los absorbentes a base de material ceramico han de ser a menudo moldeados por deformacion plastica, se suelen emplear en forma de cermets. Por lo tanto, han de ser compatibles con metales. El tantalato de cadmio es compatible con la plata y con el cobre y tambien lo es con el niquel hasta 700 Degree-Sign C; el tantalato de indio es completamente compatible con la plata, el cobre y el niquel, y tambien, hasta 700 Degree-Sign C, con el molibdeno y, hasta cierto punto, con el hierro.' Estos resultados concuerdan con los calculos termodinamicos. Para juzgar el comportamiento de los materiales absorbentes en las condiciones propias de un reactor, hay que considerar los productos descendientes que se originan por absorcion neutronica. Si bien el {sup 113}Cd se transforma en {sup 114}Cd estable, el tantalo se transmuta en volframio, y el indio, en estano. Ambos productos descendientes pueden fijar, en sus estados de valencia mas estables, una mayor proporcion de oxigeno que los elementos ascendientes. Asi pues, es de esperar que el Cd{sup ++} se reduzca pasando a la forma metalica, y que, en cambio, el tantalato de indio permanezca estable. Ello se ha confirmado experimentalmente agregando SnO y WO{sub 2} a tantalato de cadmio. Este efecto puede eliminarse anadiendo oxido cuproso a los compuestos.

    The paper discusses the pattern of occurrence of problems of non-destructive multiparameter testing in nuclear technology and the advisability of approaching these problems by the eddy-current method. The application of electric models is justified for solving testing problems using a long follow-through coil. Design formulae are given and the principles of designing applied eddy-current probes are explained. An arrangement for testing tube-wall thickness is described: in this apparatus the effect of movement of the tube under testing on the measurement results is eliminated with the aid of a servo-system controlled by a signal depending on the probe voltage phase. The paper describes how a self-oscillating circuit containing a test-coil is used as the probe of an apparatus for testing tubes. On the basis of calculated and experimental data various possibilities are indicated for the construction of single-frequency applied eddy-current testing probes for simultaneous measurement of more than two parameters.

    The Danish Atomic Energy Commission has undertaken a design study oi an organic-cooled, heavy- water-moderated power reactor. The fuel element for the reactor is a 19-rod bundle; the fuel rods contain sintered uranium-dioxide pellets canned in 2-m long, helically-finned tubes of Sintered Aluminium Product (SAP). A very high quality of the canning tubes is necessary to obtain the optimum heat-transfer conditions and to maintain the integrity of the fuel element during reactor service. Two examples of tube design illustrate the narrow dimensional tolerances. In order to ensure an adequate quality of the canning tubes, a stringent quality control has been established, to a wide extent based upon non-destructive methods. An account is presented of the non-destructive techniques developed for measuring wall thickness and diameters and for detecting defects. The complex 24-finned cross-section prevents the application of ultrasonic or eddy-current methods for wall-thickness measurements. Therefore, a special recording beta-gauge has been developed, based upon the attenuation of beta radiation from a Sr{sup 90} source placed inside the tube. An ultrasonic immersion resonance method is used for the continuous recording of the wall thickness of the more simple 12-finned tube design. Inner and outer (across fin tips) diameters are continuously recorded by rapid air-gauge systems. Flaw detection is carried out by the ultrasonic pulse-echo immersion technique and by eddy-current inspection.. Transverse cracks can easily be detected by the ultrasonic method whereas inspection for longitudinal flaws has not appeared feasible with this method. Therefore, eddy-current inspection is applied in addition to the ultrasonic testing. (author) [French] La Commission de l'energie atomique danoise a entrepris l'etude d'un reacteur de puissance refroidi par un fluide organique et ralenti a l'eau lourde. L'element combustible est constitue par un assemblage de 19 barreaux; chaque barreau contient des pastilles de bioxyde d'uranium fritte, dans une gaine de 2'm de long en poudre d'aluminium frittee portant des ailettes disposees en configuration helicoiedale. Ces gaines doivent repondre a des specifications tres strictes pour que soient realisees les conditions optimales de transfert de chaleur et que soit maintenue l'integrite des elements combustibles aussi longtemps qu'ils restent dans le reacteur. Deux exemples de modeles de gaines montrent a quel point les tolerances di- mensionnelles sont faibles. Afin de s'assurer que les gaines repondent bien aux specifications, on procede a un controle extremement rigoureux, constitue en grande partie par des essais non destructifs. Les auteurs decrivent les methodes d'essais non destructifs mises au point pour mesurer l'epaisseur de la paroi et les diametres et pour deceler les defectuosites. En raison de la geometrie complexe de sa section, le modele a 24 ailettes ne se prete pas a l'application de methodes par les ultrasons ou par les courants de Foucault pour mesurer l'epaisseur de la paroi. On a donc mis au point une jauge a rayons beta speciale, pourvue d'un dispositif d'enregistrement; elle est fondee sur l'attenuation du rayonnement beta emis par une source au {sup 90}Sr placee a l'interieur de la gaine. Pour le modele a 12 ailettes, on utilise une methode de resonance ultrasonore en immersion pour l'enregistrement continu de l'epaisseur de la paroi. On mesure, en enregistrement continu, les diametres interieur et exterieur (au niveau des tetes d'ailettes) avec des appareils comportant une jauge a air rapide. Pour la detection des defectuosites, on applique la methode ultrasonore impulsion-echo, en immersion, et la methode des courants de Foucault. La methode ultrasonore permet de deceler facilement les fissures transversales, mais elle ne semble pas applicable a la detection des fissures longitudinales; c'est pourquoi on la complete par la methode des courants de Foucault. (author) [Spanish] La Comision de Energia Atomica de Dinamarca ha emprendido el estudio de un reactor de potencia con refrigerante organico y moderador de agua pesada. Los correspondientes elementos combustibles consisten en haces de 19 barras formadas por pastillas de dioxido de uranio sinterizado, encerradas en tubos de producto de aluminio sinterizado (SAP), de 2 m de longitud, provistos de aletas helicoidales. Para obtener condiciones optimas de transmision de calor y mantener la integridad del elemento combustible durante el funcionamiento del reactor, es necesario contar con tubos de muy alta calidad. Se citan dos ejemplos que ponen de manifiesto las estrechas tolerancias dimensionales adoptadas. Para asegurar una calidad adecuada de los tubos, se establecio un control de calidad muy estricto, basado en gran medida en la aplicacion de metodos no destructivos. Se describen en esta memoria las tecnicas desarrolladas para medir el espesor de pared y los diametros, y para descubrir defectos. La compleja seccion transversal, con 24 aletas, impide aplicar metodos ultrasonicos o de comentes de Foucault para medir el espesor de la pared. Por consiguiente, se desarrollo un calibre registrador de rayos beta, cuyo funcionamiento se basa en la atenuacion sufrida por la radiacion beta proveniente de una fuente de {sup 90}Sr colocada en el interior del tubo. Para el registro continuo del espesor de la pared del tubo con seccion transversal mas simple, de 12 aletas, se utiliza un metodo ultrasonico de resonancia por inmersion. Los diametros interno y externo (entre puntos de aletas) se registran de manera continua mediante calibres neumaticos rapidos. Las fallas se detectan mediante la tecnica de eco de impulsos ultrasonicos, y examinando los tubos con corrientes de Foucault. El metodo ultrasonico permite descubrir facilmente las fisuras transversales, pero hasta ahora ha sido imposible utilizarlo para la deteccion de defectos longitudinales. Por consiguiente, ademas del ensayo ultrasonico, se aplica el examen con corrientes de Foucault.

    Present-day accelerators make it possible to obtain beams of protons which have adequate intensity but are not suitable for the general irradiation of large experimental animals. Using the synchrotron of the Joint Institute of Nuclear Research it has been shown that with the aid of absorbers it is possible to expand a proton beam to the dimensions required, without introducing the accompanying radiations. Dose fields, uniform within {+-} 10%, in which primary protons constitute between 99 and 88% of the tissue dose, were obtained for irradiation of dogs with protons of energy 510, 250 and 120 MeV. The tissue doses and the radiation composition were studied in a dog phantom. Irradiation conditions for ensuring uniform radiation of the dog's body are proposed. Various questions of high-energy proton dosimetry are discussed, and the use of different types of dosimeter are considered in this connection. The paper also describes a method of determining the contribution of cascade neutrons to the proton flux, using activation detectors. (author) [French] Les accelerateurs actuels permettent d'obtenir des faisceaux de protons d'une intensite suffisante mais impropres a l'irradiation generale de grands animaux d'experience. A l'aide du synchrocyclotron OIAI, on a montre que le recours aux absorbants permet d'elargir le faisceau de protons jusqu'aux dimensions voulues sans y introduire de rayonnements secondaires. Pour irradier des chiens par des protons de 510, 250 et 120 MeV, on a pu ainsi realiser des champs de rayonnements uniformes a {+-}10% pres, dans lesquels les protons primaires constituaient 99 a 88% de la dose tissulaire. Les auteurs ont etudie des doses tissulaires et la composition du rayonnement a l'interieur d'un fantome de chien. Ils indiquent dans quelles conditions on assure une irradiation uniforme du corps de l'animal. Les auteurs examinent plusieurs questions relatives a la dosimetrie des neutrons de grande energie. Ils justifient l'emploide divers types de dosimetres a cette fin. Ils proposent une methode pour determiner, a l'aide de detecteurs par activation, la contribution des neutrons de cascade au flux de protons. (author) [Spanish] Los aceleradores actuales permiten obtener haces de protones de suficiente intensidad, pero que resultan inadecuados para la irradiacion general de animales de laboratorio de gran tamano. En el sincrociclotron OIYI los autores comprobaron que, utilizando un absorbente adecuado, se puede ensanchar el haz protonico hasta conferirle las dimensiones deseadas, sin dar origen a radiaciones secundarias. Produjeron asi campos para irradiar perros con protones de 510, 250 y 120 MeV, de una uniformidad de {+-} 10%, en los cuales los protones primarios constituyen del 99 al 88% de la dosis tisular. Estudiaron las dosis tisulares y analizaron las radiaciones dentro de un modelo en forma de perro. Indican en la memoria en que condiciones de exposicion se logra una irradiacion uniforme del cuerpo del animal. Los autores examinan tambien algunos problemas de la dosimetria de los protones de elevada energia. Describen la utilizacion de una serie de dosimetros para ese objeto. Proponen un metodo para determinar con ayuda de detectores de activacion la contribucion de los neutrones en cascada al flujo protonico.

    In order to obtain a better picture of the structural details of the diseased parenchyma of the liver, we have been using a device which has been adapted for use with the Scanner- Tracerlab and which produces liver scans made up of seven colours. The colours are chosen arbitrarily, each one corresponding to a given number of counts and representing zones of isoradioactivity, i.e. zones of liver tissue of relatively equivalent volume. The white in these colour scintigrams represents the radiation background and the black corresponds to the peak activity in the centre of the liver, where the parenchyma is thickest. The colours in between correspond to the different zones of isoradioactivity. This method has been used to examine 150 patients suffering from malignant (primary and secondary) and benign tumours, 80 patients suffering from chronic hepatitis and cirrhosis and 50 normal subjects. In most of the cases studied, intravenous injections of colloidal gold-198 (Amersham, UK) were used. In numerous cases parallel studies were carried out with mechanical scans, black-and-white photoscintigrams and colour scintigrams. Diagnoses were checked by means of punctures, laparoscopy, laparophotography or cinematography, biopsic punctures, surgery and necropsy. Colour scintillography brings out more clearly the variations in the intensity of the radioactivity, i.e. the disorganization of the parenchyma of the liver or its substitution by tumoral processes. (author) [French] Pour obtenir des images qui refletent mieux les details de structure du parenchyme hepatique modifie par la maladie, les auteurs ont adapte au Scanner-Tracerlab un dispositif a l'aide duquel on obtient des cartes hepatiques en sept couleurs. Chaque couleur, choisie arbitrairement, correspond a un nombre d'impulsions et represente des zones d'isoradioactivite, c'est-a-dire de tissu hepatique de volume relativement egal. Dans le scintigramme en couleurs, le blanc represente la radioactivite de fond, tandis que le noir represente l'activite maximum, situee au centre du foie ou le parenchyme est plus epais. Les couleurs intermediaires correspondent aux differentes zones d'isoradioactivite. Les auteurs ont etudie, a l'aide de cette methode, 150 cas de tumeurs hepatiques malignes (primitives et secondaires) et de tumeurs benignes, 80 cas d'hepatite chronique et de cirrhose et 50 cas normaux. Dans la majorite descas, ils ont utilise l'or-198 colloiedal (Amersham-Angleterre) injecte par voie intraveineuse. Ils ont effectue parallelement, dans un grand nombre de cas, des mecanogrammes, photoscintigrammes en blanc et noir et scintigrammes en couleurs. Le diagnostic a ete verifie par ponction, laparoscopie, laparophoto ou cinematographie, ponction biopsique, intervention chirurgicale ou necropsie. La methode scintigraphique en couleurs permet de mieux distinguer les variations d'intensite de la radioactivite, c'est-a-dire la desorganisation ou la substitution du parenchyme hepatique par processus tumoraux. (author) [Spanish] Para obtener imagenes que reflejasen mejor los detalles de la estructura del parenquima hepatico modificado por la enfermedad, los autores adaptaron al aparato Scanner-Tracerlab un dispositivo gracias al cual se pueden obtener diagramas hepaticos en siete colores. Cada color, elegido arbitrariamente, corresponde a un numero dado de impulsos y representa zonas de isorradiactividad, es decir, de tejido hepatico de volumen relativamente igual. En el centelleograma policromo, el blanco representa la radiactividad de fondo, mientras que el negro representa la actividad maxima, situada en el centro del higado, donde el parenquima es mas espeso. Los colores intermedios corresponden a las diferentes zonas de isorradiactividad. Recurriendo a este metodo, los autores estudiaron 150 casos de tumores hepaticos malignos (primitivos y secundarios) y de tumores benignos, 80 casos de hepatitis cronica y de cirrosis, y 50 casos normales. En la mayoria de los casos utilizaron el oro-198 coloidal (Amersham -Reino Unido) inyectado por vía endovenosa. En un gran numero de casos, efectuaron paralelamente mecanogramas, fotocentelleogramas en blanco y negro y centelleogramas policromos. Verificaron el diagnostico mediante puncion, laparoscopia, laparofotograffa o cinematografia, puncion biopsica, intervencion quirurgica o necropsia. El metodo centelleografico policromo permite distinguir mejor las variaciones de intensidad de la radiactividad, es decir, da una idea mas cabal de la desorganizacion o sustitucion del parenquima hepatico provocadas por los procesos tumorales.

    A high fibrin content has been shown in a large number of malignant tumours, both experimental and human; this finding has been referred to the high thromboplastin content within the tumour, inducing the polymerization of fibrinogen into fibrin. On the basis of these data, human fibrinogen labelled with I{sup 131} and I{sup 125} has been tested as a possible agent for detecting malignant tumours in man. The uptake of radioiodinate fibrinogen has been studied in malignant and benign tumours, as well as non-neoplastic space-occupying lesions. Seventy-three cases have been so far examined; 53 of these were represented by malignant tumours localized in the skeleton, lungs, brain, abdominal organs etc. The I{sup 131}- fibrinogen uptake test gave correct results in 79% of the cases examined; no false positive results were obtained in the whole series. The technique and the results are briefly discussed. From the data obtained, it seems that fibrinogen-I{sup 131} may be usefully applied for the early detection of malignancies in man; possible improvements of the detection technique may markedly increase the diagnostic value of the method. (author) [French] Une teneur elevee en fibrine a ete mise en evidence dans un grand nombre de tumeurs malignes, tant chez l'homme que chez des animaux de laboratoire; on a impute ce phenomene au fait que la tumeur contient une forte proportion de thromboplastine qui provoque la formation de fibrine par polymerisation du fibrinogene. Sur cette base, les auteurs ont utilise du fibrinogene humain marque avec {sup 1}'3{sup 1}I ou {sup 125}I pour la detection de tumeurs malignes chez l'homme. Ils ont etudie la fixation du fibrinogene marque dans des tumeurs malignes et des tumeurs benignes, ainsi que dans des lesions en volume non-neoplastiques. Sur les 73 cas examines jusqu'a present, 53 etaient constitues par des tumeurs malignes localisees dans le squelette, les poumons, le cerveau, les organes abdominaux, etc. Le test de fixation du fibrinogene marque avec {sup 1}'3{sup 1}I a donne des resultats corrects dans 79% des cas examines; aucun resultat faussement positif n'a ete enregistre sur toute la serie. Le memoire expose succinctement le procede et les resultats. D'apres les donnees obtenues, il semble que le fibrinogene marque avec {sup 131}l puisse etre utilise avec succes pour la detection precoce de tumeurs malignes chez l'homme; en ameliorant la technique de detection, il sera peut-etre possible d'augmenter sensiblement la valeur du diagnostic etabli par ce procede. (author) [Spanish] Se ha demostrado que en muchos tumores malignos, tanto en los inducidos en animales de laboratorio como en los formados espontaneamente en el hombre, hay un elevado contenido de fibrina-, se ha establecido una relacion entre este hecho y la gran cantidad de tromboplastina presente en el tumor, que seria lo que provoca la formacion de fibrina por polimerizacion del fibrinogeno. Teniendo esto en cuenta, los autores emplearon fibrinogeno humano marcado con {sup 131}I y {sup 125}l para detectar tumores malignos en el hombre. Estudiaron la absorcion del fibrinogeno radioyodado en tumores malignos y benignos y en lesiones no neoplasticas extensas. Han examinado hasta ahora 73 casos, constituidos 53 de ellos por tumores malignos localizados en el esqueleto, los pulmones, el cerebro, el tubo digestivo, etc. El ensayo de absorcion del fibrinogeno-{sup 131}I dio resultados correctos en el 79% de los casos; en toda la serie no se dio ningun resultado erroneamente positivo. Los autores discuten brevemente la tecnica y los resultados obtenidos. Los datos que ha sido posible reunir parecen indicar que el fibrinogeno-{sup 131}I puede utilizarse con exito para la deteccion temprana de formaciones malignas en el hombre; es probable que perfeccionando la tecnica de deteccion se logre aumentar notablemente el valor diagnostico del metodo.

    Solid-state detectors are finding increasing use in the United Kingdom Atomic Energy Authority for biological sample measurements and health physics operational survey monitoring. The most usual method employed for the estimation of plutonium retained in the body by exposed personnel is to take samples of the urine and faeces. These samples are chemically processed to extract the plutonium, which is electro-deposited on to a small stainless steel disc to produce a thin ''source'' with negligible selfabsorption of the alpha-activity. At normal occupational levels of personnel exposure the amount of activity collected in this way is extremely small and accurate low-level measurement of the deposited samples is necessary. The solid-state detector shows an advantage over other forms of detector (e.g. scintillation counter or gas-flow proportional counter) in that a much lower background is possible and thus a lower level of activity can be determined. Two types of apparatus using solid-state detectors are in common use for this measurement. The simplest form of equipment incorporates a solid-state detector to measure the total alpha-activity of the sample. However, if other alpha-active isotopes are present, then to obtain a true estimation of the plutonium content, the solid-state detector can more usefully be employed as a spectrometer; by pulse amplitude analysis it is possible to differentiate the 5.14-MeV emission of plutonium from the alpha-emissions of other nuclides. Two equipments using a solid-state detector for energy analysis are in use. The simpler of these incorporates a 20-mm-diam. solid-state detector, the output of which is taken to a circuit incorporating two pulse amplitude discriminators operating two resettable mechanical registers, the discrimination levels being adjusted to encompass the peak due to alpha-particles from {sup 239}Pu. For very high resolution energy analysis (> 1%) the sample is measured in vacuum with a selected solid-state detector and the output taken to a multichannel analyser. Details of these equipments and the results obtained are presented. A new design of automatic alpha-assay equipment, including a solid-state detector, is employed for monitoring the filter papers taken from personnel air samplers that have been worn by personnel employed in handling plutonium. This equipment automatically counts each of 12 filter papers for a pre-determined period and prints out the total counts recorded. It also incorporates a sequential analysis circuit which gives a very rapid decision as to whether the sample is above or below a pre-set level. The same technique could easily be applied to a wide range of sample assay measurements. Considerable use is also being made of solid-state detectors in various types of probe for general alpha monitoring; probes have been designed with sensitive areas ranging from 12-18 cm{sup 2}. Small area detectors are useful for locating spots of contamination on the surface of the body, where their robustness, lack of light sensitivity and the simplicity of the associated equipment make them more attractive than the other types of detectors (e.g. scintillators) for this purpose. An important further attractive feature of the solid-state detector is lack of response (compared to the normal ZnS scintillation counter) to gamma-radiation; this is important when monitoring for alpha contamination in the presence of a high gamma background, e.g. detecting leakage material from a radium needle or radon seed. Details of these probes are given. (author) [French] Les detecteurs a semi-conducteurs sont de plus en plus utilises dans les etablissements de l'Autorite de l'energie atomique du Royaume-Uni pour les mesures d'echantillons biologiques et les controles de radioprotection. La methode la plus frequemment employee pour evaluer la quantite de plutonium fixee dans l'organisme du personnel expose consiste a prelever des echantillons d'urine et de matieres fecales. Ces echantillons subissent un traitement chimique destine a en extraire le plutonium qui se depose par electrolyse sur un petit disque d'acier inoxydable qui constitute ainsi une source mince dont l'auto-absorption pour l'activite alpha est negligeable. Pour une exposition professionnelle normale, la quantite d'activite ainsi collectee est tres minime; on doit donc pouvoir mesurer avec exactitude les faibles niveaux d'activite des echantillons. Le detecteur a semi-conducteurs presente un avantage par rapport aux autres types de detecteurs (par exemple, compteur a scintillation ou compteur proportionnel a courant gazeux) en ce sens que l'on peut reduire considerablement le bruit de fond, ce qui permet de mesurer des niveaux energetiques plus bas. On utilise pour ces mesures deux types d'ensemble pourvus de detecteurs a semi-conducteurs. Le dispositif le plus simple comporte un detecteur a semi-conducteurs destine a mesurer l'activite alpha totale de l'echantillon. Toutefois, lorsqu'il existe d'autres isotopes emetteurs alpha, il est preferable, pour evaluer avec exactitude le teneur en plutonium, d'utiliser le detecteur a semi-conducteurs comme spectrometre ; l'analyse de l'amplitude permet de distinguer le rayonnement de 5,14 MeV du plutonium du rayonnement alpha d'autres nucleides. On utilise deux appareils comportant un detecteur a semi-conducteurs destine a l'analyse de l'energie. Le plus( simple de ces appareils est pourvu d'un detecteur de 20 mm de diametre dont la sortie est couplee a un circuit comportant deux selecteurs d'amplitude qui commandent deux enregistreurs mecaniques a remise a zero, les seuils de discrimination etant regles de maniere a tenir compte de la crete alpha du 239Pu. Pour les analyses d'energie a tres forte resolution (superieure a 1%), on mesure l'echantillon dans le vide au moyen d'un detecteur a semiconducteurs approprie dont la sortie alimente un analyseur multicanal. Le memoire donne des details sur ces appareils et les resultats obtenus. On utilise un nouvel appareil automatique de mesure du rayonnement alpha, qui comporte un detecteur a semi-conducteurs, pour analyser les papiers-filtres provenant des echantillonneurs d'air dont est pourvu le personnel qui manipule du plutonium. Cet appareil mesure automatiquement la radioactivite individuelle de 12 papiers-filtres pendant un temps pre-regle et imprime le nombre total de coups enregistres. Il comporte egalement un circuit d'analyse en continu qui permet de controler rapidement si la radioactivite de l'echantillon est superieure ou inferieure a un niveau pre-determine. On pourrait facilement utiliser la meme methode pour une gamme etendue d'analyses d'echantillons. Les detecteurs a semi-conducteurs sont egalement tres souvent utilises dans divers types de sondes servant au controle general du rayonnement alpha; on a mis au point des sondes dont la surface sensible varie entre 12 mm{sup 2} et 18 cm{sup 2}. Les detecteurs a surface de detection reduite sont utiles pour deceler des points de contamination sur le corps et ils sont plus pratiques a cet egard que d'autres types de detecteurs (par exemple, les detecteurs a scintillation), du fait de leur solidite, de leur absence de sensibilite a la lumiere et de la simplicite de l'appareillage connexe. Une autre propriete interessante des detecteurs and semi-conducteurs, par rapport aux compteurs a scintillation a ZnS normaux, est leur absence de reponse au rayonnement gamma; cette consideration est importante lorsqu'on veut determiner la contamination alpha en presence d'un bruit de fond constitue par un rayonnement gamma intense; c'est notamment le cas pour la detection des fuites de matiere provenant d'une aiguille de radium ou d'une capsule de radon. Le memoire donne des details sur ces sondes. (author) [Spanish] Los servicios de la United Kingdom Atomic Energy Authority utilizan cada vez mas los detectores de semiconductores para la medicion de muestras biologicas y para la vigilancia de las operaciones con fines de proteccion radiologica. El metodo mas usual para determinar la cantidad de plutonio retenida en el organismo de personas expuestas consiste en tomar muestras de orina y de heces. Dichas muestras se someten a un tratamiento quefmico para extraer el plutonio, que se deposita por electrolisis sobre un pequeno disco de acero inoxidable a fin de obtener una fuente 'delgada' en que autoabsorcion de la actividad alfa es despreciable. Normalmente, la exposicion de personas por razones profesionales es tal que la cantidad de sustancia radiactiva recogida de esta manera resulta sumamente pequena, siendo necesario medir con precision la debil actividad de las mencionadas muestras. El detector a base de semiconductores presenta sobre otros tipos de detectores (por ejemplo, contadores de centelleo o contadores proporcionales de corriente gaseosa) la ventaja de que permite operar con un fondo mucho mas reducido y, por tanto, determinar actividades mas bajas. Para estas mediciones, se suele utilizar dos tipos de aparatos con detectores de estado solido. El mas simple de ellos esta provisto de un detector de semiconductores para medir la actividad alfa total de la muestra. Pero si hay presentes otros emisores alfa, es mas practico emplear el detector de estado solido como espectrometro para determinar correctamente el contenido de plutonio, dado que analizando la amplitud de los impulsos se pueden discriminar los rayos alfa de 6,14 MeV emitidos por el plutonio de los procedentes de otros nueclidos. Para los analisis de energia se utilizan dos tipos de aparatos con detectores de semiconductores. El mas sencillo esta provisto de un detector de 20 mm de diametro, conectado a un circuito provisto dedos discriminadores de amplitud de impulsos que accionan sendos dispositivos de registro mecanico reajustables, graduandose los niveles de discriminacion de modo que abarquen el pico debido a las particulas alfa del {sup 239}Pu. Para analisis de energfa de elevado poder resolutivo (>1%), la muestra se mide en el vacio con un detector de estado solido especial y la salida se conecta a un analizador multicanal. Se describen detalladamente estos aparatos y los resultados obtenidos con los mismos. Para controlar los papeles de filtro de los tomamuestras individuales de aire que lleva el personal que se dedica a manipular plutonio, se utiliza un nuevo tipo de aparato automatico de determinacion de la actividad alfa, provisto de un detector de semiconductores. Este aparato cuenta automaticamente cada papel de filtro (en grupos de 12) durante un tiempo proviamente fijado e imprime las cuentas totales registradas. Esta dotado asimismo de un circuito de analisis sucesivo que decide muy rapidamente si la muestra rebasa o no un nivel preestablecido. Esta misma tecnica podrfa aplicarse facilmente a una gran variedad de mediciones de actividad. Los detectores de semiconductores se utilizan ampliamente en varios tipos de sondas destinadas al control de la radiactividad alfa en general; se han construido sondas con areas sensibles de 12 mm{sup 2} a 18 cm{sup 2}. Los detectores de area pequena son utiles para localizar puntos de contaminacion en la superficie del cuerpo, operacion para la que por su robustez, su Insensibilidad a la luz y la sencillez del equipo auxiliar, se prestan mejor que otros tipos de detectores (por ejemplo, centelleadores). Otra caracteristica interesante del detector de semiconductores estriba en su falta de sensibilidad (en comparacion con el contador corriente de centelleo de ZnS) a los rayos gamma, ventaja importante cuando se investiga la contaminacion alfa en presencia de un fondo intenso de radiacion gamma, por ejemplo, para detector escapes de una aguja de radio o de una semilla de radon. Las sondas se describen detalladamente en la memoria.

    The calculation of control tod effectiveness is complicated by its dependence on both the neutron energy distribution and the geometry of the assembly. When one compares the theory with experimental results obtained from either reactors or subcritical systems, difficulties arise in the comparison because of the intrinsic complexity of such systems. The neutron die-away technique affords the possibility of having an all-thermal neutron model, in which the neutron energy distribution can be separated from spatial effects. Hence, the geometrical factor of the control rod effectiveness can be studied without regard to the details of the neutron spectrum, and the results compared with a clean, simple experimental set-up. The method is based on the fact that in a neutron die- away experiment of the type described here, the buckling of the assembly is related to the decay constant of the fundamental mode by B{sup 2} = ({lambda} - {lambda}{sub a})/D {lambda}{sub a} = inverse lifetime of the neutrons in moderator (s{sup -1}) D = diffusion constant (cm{sup 2}/s). The moderating assemblies used for these experiments were rectangular prisms of beryllium, built in several sizes from small (2.54 cm high, 7.3 cm square) blocks. Three types of cadmium control rods were used: thin 0.476 cm diameter rods; a cruciform-section rod; and hollow ''thick'' rods 7.3 cm x 7.3 cm crosssection. The theoretical schemes tested were: (1) Nordheim-Scalettar (2) Hurwitz-Roe (3) Numerical Diffusion Code. The-effect of a cruciform absorber was computed by using the Hurwitz-Roe conformal transformation technique and value of 0.0188 cm{sup -2} was found for the buckling which compares with the experimental results of 0.0187 {+-} 0.0006 cm{sup -2}. For the thick rods, both Nordheim-Scalettar and the diffusion code overestimated the experimental results by about 10%. However, the interaction between thick rods was correctly predicted by both methods. For thin rods, the Nordheim-Scalettar technique was extremely accurate. The disagreement found for the thick rods is to be expected when diffusion theory is used to describe the effect of absorbers with cross-sectional dimensions comparable to the neutron mean free path in the moderator. Measurements with rods of intermediate sizes are being carried out to determine the point at which diffusion theory becomes inadequate. (author) [French] Le calcul de l'efficacite des barres de commande se trouve complique par le fait qu'elle depend a la fois de la repartition energetique des neutrons et de la geometrie de l'ensemble. La comparaison entre la theorie et les resultats experimentaux obtenus sur des reacteurs ou des systemes sous- critiques souleve des difficultes, en raison de la complexite intrinseque de ces systemes. La methode d'absorption des neutrons permet d'utiliser un modele a neutrons exclusivement thermiques, dans lequel on peut dissocier la repartition energetique des neutrons.des effets spatiaux. Il s'ensuit que l'on peut etudier ie facteur geometrique de l'efficacite de la barre de commande sans ten ir compte des details du spectre des neutrons, et comparer les resultats a un dispositif experimental simple non empoisonne. La methode est fondee sur le fait que, dans une experience d'absorption des neutrons du genre de celle que decrivent les autetits, le laplacien de l'ensemble est fonction de la constante de decroissance du mode fondamental. B{sup 2} = ({lambda} - {lambda}{sub a})/D {lambda}{sub a} = inverse de la periode des neutrons dans le moderateur (s{sup -1}) D = constante de diffusion (cm{sup 2}/s) Le milieu ralentisseur utilise pour ces experiences etait constitue par des prismes rectangulaires de. beryllium, de dimensions diverses, dont les plus petits etaient des blocs de 2,54 cm de haut et 7,3 de cote. Trois types de barres de cadmium ont ete utilises: des barres minces de 0,476 cm de diametre, une barre de section cruciforme, et des barres creuses et 'epaisses' ayant une section carree de 7,3 de ctfte. Les theories, qui ont ete verifiees sont celles de: 1. Nordheim-Scalettar, 2. Hurwitz-Roe, 3. et celle du code de diffusion numerique. Les auteurs ont calcule l'effet des barres cruciformes a l'aide de la methode de transformation conforme de Hurwitz-Roe et ont trouve pour le laplacien la valeur de 0,0188 cm{sup -2} qui est voisine du resultat de l'experience, 0,0187 {+-} 0,0006 cm-2. Pour les barres epaisses, les previsions de la theorie de Nordheim-Scallettar et de la theorie du code de diffusion depassent les resultats experimentaux d'environ lOyeo. Les deux methodes ont toutefois etabli des previsions correctes en ce qui concerne l'interaction entre les barres epaisses. Pour les barres minces, la methode Nordheim-Scalettar est extremement precise. On peut s'attendre a trouver l'ecart constate pour les barres epaisses, lorsqu'on utilise la theorie de diffusion pour calculer l'effet des barres ayant une section de dimensions comparables a celle du libre parcours moyen des neutrons dans le ralentisseur. On procede actuellement a des mesures avec des banes de dimensions intermediaires pour determiner le point a partir duquel la theorie de la diffusion n'est plus valable. (author) [Spanish] El calculo de la eficacia de las barras de control se complica por el hecho de que esta depende a la vez de la distribucion de las energias neutronicas y de la geometria del conjunto. Cuando se trata de comparar los datos teoricos con los resultados experimentales obtenidos en otros reactores o en sistemas subcriticos, surgen dificultades derivadas de la complejidad intrinseca de tales sistemas. La tecnica de la extincion neutronica brinda la posibilidad de establecer un modelo neutronico integramente termico, en el cual el efecto de la distribucion de energias neutronicas se puede separar de los efectos espaciales. Por lo tanto, es dable estudiar el factor geometrico de la eficacia de las barras de control sin reparar en las caracteristicas del espectro neutronico y luego es posible referir los resultados a un conjunto experimental limpio y simple. El metodo se basa en el hecho de que, en un experimento de extincion neutronica del tipo descrito por los autores, el laplaciano del conjunto esta relacionado con la constante de desintegracion del modo fundamental por la formula: B{sup 2} = ({lambda} - {lambda}{sub a})/D donde {lambda}{sub a} es la inversa del periodo de los neutrones en el moderador (s{sup -1}) y D es la constante de difusion (cm{sup 2}/s). En estos experimentos se usaron como conjuntos moderadores prismas rectangulares de berilio, de diversos tamaflos, constituidos mediante pequenos bloques (de 2,54 cm de altura y base cuadrada de 7,3 cm de lado). Se utilizaron tres tipos de barras de control de cadmio: barras finas de 0,476 cm de diametro, barras de seccion cruciforme y barras 'gruesas' huecas de 7,3 x 7,3 cm de seccion transversal. Se verificaron los siguientes planteos teoricos: 1. Nordheim-Scalettar. 2. Hurwitz-Roe. 3. Una clave numerica de difusion. Se calculo el efecto de un absorbente cruciforme utilizando la tecnica de transformacion conformai de Hurwitz-Roe y se hallo para el laplaciano el valor 0,0188 cm{sup -2}, mientras que el resultado experimental respectivo era 0,0187 {+-} 0,0006 cm{sup -2}. En el caso de las barras 'gruesas' , los resultados obtenidos con el procedimiento Nordheim-Scalettar y con la clave de difusion superaron a los resultados experimentales en un 10%, aproximadamente. No obstante, la interaccion entre las barras gruesas se calculo correctamente por ambos metodos. Para las barras delgadas, el procedimiento de Nordheim-Scalettar da resultados sumamente exactos. No es sorprendente la discrepancia observada en el caso de las barras gruesas pues es facil que surja cuando se aplica la teoria de la difusion para describir el efecto de los absorbentes cuyas secciones transversales tienen dimensiones de orden comparable al recorrido libre medio de los neutrones en el moderador. Los autores efectuan actualmente determinaciones con barras de dimensiones intermedias, a fin de averiguar el limite de aplicacion de la teoria de la difusion.

    Recent inelastic neutron scattering experiments carried out by Okazaki and Turberfield have provided a direct measure of spin wave dispersion in MnF{sub 2} both at 4.2 Degree-Sign K and at higher temperatures approaching the Neel point. The low temperature results taken together with other magnetic data allow the various exchange constants in MnF{sub 2} to be evaluated with some precision. Using these constants, the spin wave formalism for anti-ferromagnets described by Oguchi has been employed to predict theoretically the temperature dependence of the spin wave dispersion. No disposable parameters are involved and theoretical dispersion curves may be compared with the experimental results for higher temperatures as a test of the spin wave theory. The spin wave energies were evaluated numerically and integrations over the Brillouin zone were carried out, thus avoiding the use of some form of series expansion in temperature. Account was taken of dynamical interactions between pairs of spin waves but kinematical effects were neglected. Renormalization of the spin wave energies was performed. This is an important factor for T/T{sub N}{>=} Vulgar-Fraction-One-Half The agreement between theory and experiment is in fact remarkably good up to temperatures corresponding to about 90% of the Neel point. It would be dangerous to extrapolate this result to systems of lower spin as kinematical effects are likely to play a much greater part in such cases. For MnF{sub 2} where S= 5/2 a rough estimate suggests that kinematical effects will not be important until M/M{sub O}-20% and this occurs only within a degree or so of the Neel point. A brief discussion of the likely consequences of a biquadratic exchange term in MnF{sub 2} is given and it is concluded that, if present, such exchange is quite small. (author) [French] Des experiences recentes, executees par Okazaki et Turberfield au moyen de la diffusion inelastique des neutrons, ont fourni une mesure directe de la dispersion de l'onde de spin dans MnF{sub 2}, a 4,2 Degree-Sign K et a des temperatures superieures approchant le point de Neel. Les resultats obtenus a basse temperature, completes par des donnees sur les caracteristiques magnetiques, ont permis d'evaluer les diverses constantes d'echange dans MnF{sub 2} avec une certaine precision. En utilisant ces constantes, l'auteur a employe le formalisme de l'onde de spin pour substances antiferromagnetiques, decrit par Oguchi, pour prevoir theoriquement comment varie la dispersion de l'onde de spin en fonction de la temperature. Aucun des parametres mis enjeu n'est superflu, et les courbes theoriques de dispersion peuvent etre comparees aux resultats experimentaux pour des temperatures plus elevees en vue de verifier la theorie de l'onde de spin. L'auteur a evalue numeriquement les energies d'onde de spin et integre sur la zone de Brillouin, evitant ainsi tout developpement en serie selon la temperature. Ils a tenu compte des interactions dynamiques entre paires d'ondes de spin, mais il a neglige les effets cinematiques. Les energies d'onde de spin ont fait l'objet d'une renormalisation. C'est la un facteur important pour T/T{sub N} Greater-Than-Or-Equal-To Vulgar-Fraction-One-Half . La concordance entre la theorie et les resultats experimentaux demeure, en fait, remarquable jusqu'a des temperatures correspondant a environ 90% du point de NeeL II serait dangereux d'extrapoler ces resultats en vue de les utiliser pour des systemes a spin plus faible, car les effets cinematiques joueraient probablement un role beaucoup plus important dans ces cas. En ce qui concerne MnF{sub 2}, ou S= 5/2, une evaluation grossiere laisse supposer que les effets cinematiques seront peu importants jusqu'a M/M{sub O}-20%, ce qui ne se produit que dans les limites d'un degre environ du point de Neel, L'auteur discute brievement les consequences que peut avoir un terme d'echange biquadratique dans MnF{sub 2}; il conclut que, si cet echange existe, il est tres faible. (author) [Spanish] Los experimentos de dispersion inelastica de neutrones, realizados recientemente por Okazaki y Tuberfield, han proporcionado un medio de medir directamente la dispersion de las ondas de spin en el MnF{sub 2}, tanto a 4,2 Degree-Sign K como a temperaturas mas elevadas proximas al punto de NeeL Los resultados obtenidos a bajas temperaturas, considerados conjuntamente con otros datos magneticos, permiten evaluar con cierta precision las diversas constantes de intercambio en el MnF{sub 2}. Haciendo uso de estas constantes, se ha empleado el formalismo de las ondas de spin para sustancias antiferromagneticas descrito por Oguchi para predecir teoricamente la dispersion de las ondas de spin en funcion de la temperatura. No intervienen parametros redundantes y las curvas de dispersion teoricas pueden compararse con los resultados experimentales obtenidos a temperaturas mas elevadas, como prueba de la teoria ondulatoria del spin. Se han evaluado numericamente las energias de las ondas de spin y se han realizado integraciones que abarcan la zona de Brillouin, por lo que no es preciso emplear alguna forma de desarrollo en serie en funcion de la temperatura. Se tuvieron en cuenta las interacciones dinamicas entre pares de ondas de spin, pero se despreciaron los efectos cinematicos. Se procedio a renormalizar las energias de las ondas de spin. Esto constituye un importante factor en el caso de T/T{sub N} Greater-Than-Or-Equal-To Vulgar-Fraction-One-Half . La concordancia entre los datos teoricos y los resultados experimentales es, de hecho, notable hasta temperaturas correspondientes a un 90% aproximadamente del punto de Neel. Extrapolar este resultado a sistemas de spin mas bajo seria arriesgado, ya que en esos casos es probable que los efectos cinematicos desempenen un papel mucho mas importante. Para el MnF{sub 2}, en el que S= 5/2, un calculo aproximado sugiere que los efectos cinematicos no tendran importancia hasta llegar a un valor de M/M{sub O}-20%, y esto ocurre unicamente a menos de un grado, aproximadamente, del punto de Neel. Et autor describe sucintamente las probables consecuencias de un termino bicuadratico de intercambio en el MnF{sub 2}, y llega a la conclusion de que tal intercambio, de producirse, es muy pequeno.

    Published data and the results of our own investigations have shown that the advantage of Ir{sup 192} with regard to the quality of radiographs is obvious when comparing it with Co{sup 60} even with thicknesses over 80 mm of irradiated steel. The application of Ir{sup 192} in practice is limited by the alternative: either a very long exposure time or a source of very high activity. Where the exposure (Ci. min) for 1 m of radiographed weld is plotted against the specific activity of the source, diagrams show that, for practically attainable specific activities kilo-curie sources must be used for greater thicknesses. For such sources, self-absorption may become an important factor. An analysis of the influence of self-absorption causing a reduction of the source effectiveness and the filtration effect in the source is made by determining an equivalent increase of thickness of irradiated steel and by calculating the effective linear absorption coefficient as a function of the source dimensions and the thickness of the irradiated steel. Even in cases of relatively large source dimensions the filtration effect does not diminish the effective linear absorption coefficient to such an extent that the advantage in quality against Co{sup 60} would be lost. Possibilities of improvement due to a new shape of radiographic sources are discussed. In the case of narrow primary beams these new sources give smaller effective dimensions and allow shorter source-to-film distances. A further advantage of Ir{sup 192} is obvious from the diagrams of the weight of the exposure equipment for Ir{sup 192} and Coso taking in account equivalent activities of both sources regarding the same exposure time. The economic disadvantages, because of the short half-life,of Ir{sup 192} are discussed and a rough economical comparison between Co{sup 60} and Ir{sup 192} at different extensiveness and densities of the radiographic control is given. (author) [French] Les donnees publiees et les resultats des etudes faites par l'auteur montrent que, pour ce qui est de la qualite des radiographies,{sup 192}Ir presente un avantage tres net sur {sup 60}Co, meme pour des epaisseurs d'acier irradie superieures a 80 mm. Dans la pratique, l'emploi de {sup 192}Ir est limite parce qu'il faut un temps d'exposition tres long ou une source tres intense. Des diagrammes donnent, en fonction de l'activite specifique de la source, le temps d'exposition necessaire pour radiographier une soudure de 10 cm; ces diagrammes montrent que, compte tenu des activites specifiques que l'on peut obtenir dans la pratique, il faut des sources de l'ordre du kilocurie pour des epaisseurs plus importantes. Pour de telles sources, l'auto-absorption peut devenir un facteur important. Onanalysel'influence de l'auto-absorption, qui reduit l'efficacite de la source, et l'effet de filtration dans la source en determinant l'augmentation correspondante de l'epaisseur d'acier irradie et en calculant le coefficient reel d'absorption lineique en fonction des dimensions de la source et de l'epaisseur d'acier irradie. Meme lorsque les dimensions de la source sont relativement importantes, l'effet de filtration ne diminue pas le coefficient reel d'absorption lineique au point de faire disparaitre l'avantage de {sup 192}Ir sur {sup 60}Co quant a la qualite de la radiographie. L'auteur examine les possibilites d'amelioration grace a. une forme nouvelle des sources. Ces nouvelles sources donnent, dans le cas de faisceaux primaires etroits, des dimensions efficaces plus reduites et permettent de diminuer la distance source-film. Un autre avantage de {sup 192}Ir ressort nettement des diagrammes donnant le poids des appareils de radiographie avec {sup 192}Ir et {sup 60}Co, compte tenu de l'intensite de la source dans chaque cas pour obtenir un meme temps d'exposition. L'auteur discute les desavantages de {sup 192}Ir sur le plan economique, du fait de sa courte periode; sur ce meme plan, il compare approximativement Registered-Sign Degree-Sign Co et {sup 192}Ir suivant la sensibilite et la precision desirees lors de l'examen radiographique. (author) [Spanish] Los datos publicados en la literatura y los resultados de las investigaciones del autor han puesto de manifiesto las ventajas evidentes que el {sup 192}Ir presenta sobre el {sup 60}Co en cuanto a la calidad de las radiografias obtenidas, aun con espesores de acero superiores a 80 mm. En la practica, la aplicacion del {sup 192}Ir esta supeditada a la siguiente alternativa: exposicion sumamente prolongada, o bien empleo de una fuente de actividad muy elevada. Si se representa graficamente la exposicion (Ci x min) correspondiente a 1 m de soldadura radiografiada, en funcion de la actividad especifica de la fuente, se observa que para espesores superiores a 80 mm y con las actividades especificas alcanzables en la practica, es necesario usar fuentes del orden del kilocurie. En ellas, la autoabsorcion puede llegar a ser un factor de importancia. Se analizan en la memoria la disminucion que la autoabsorcion provoca en la eficacia de la fuente y el efecto de filtracion en la misma; para ello se determina un aumento equivalente en el espesor del acero y se calcula el coeficiente de absorcion lineal efectiva en funcion de las dimensiones de la fuente y del espesor del acero irradiado. Aun tratandose de fuentes de dimensiones relativamente grandes, el efecto de diltracion no provoca en el coeficiente de absorcion lineal efectiva una disminucion capaz de anular las ventajas respecto del {sup 60}Co. Se analizan en el trabajo las posibilidades de mejora debidas al empleo de fuentes radiograficas modificadas. En el caso de haces primarios angostos, estas nuevas fuentes dan menores dimensiones efectivas y permiten trabajar con menores distancias entre fuente y pelicula. Otra ventaja del {sup 192}Ir se observa al comparar los pesos de los equipos necesarios para el {sup 192}Ir y para el {sup 60}Co, tomando en cuenta actividades equivalentes de ambas fuentes para igual tiempo de exposicion. Se analizan en el trabajo las desventajas economicas del {sup 192}Ir debidas a su corto periodo, y se presenta una comparacion economica aproximada entre {sup 60}Co y {sup 192}Ir para diferentes espesores y densidades del control radiografico.

Primenenie iridija-192 na praktike ogranichivaetsja al'ternativoj: ili trebuetsja ochen' dlitel'noe vremja obluchenija ili istochnik ochen' vysokoj aktivnosti. Diagrammy, gde vychercheno obluchenie, vyrazhennoe v kjuri v minutu dlja odnogo metra radiografirovannoj svarki v otnoshenii udel'noj aktivnosti istochnika, pokazyvajut, chto v otnoshenii prakticheski dostupnyh udel'nyh aktivnostej istochniki v kilokjuri prihoditsja ispol'zovat' dlja bol'shej tolshhiny.

    We aimed to compare expression levels of antiapoptotic and proapoptotic genes in parametrial and vaginal tissues from postmenopausal women with and without pelvic organ prolapse (POP). We hypothesized that the expression of genes that induce apoptosis may be altered in vaginal and parametrial tissues in postmenopausal women with POP. Samples of vaginal and parametrial tissues were obtained from postmenopausal women with (n = 10) and without (n = 10) POP who underwent vaginal or abdominal hysterectomy. Expression levels of antiapoptotic (BCL-2, BCL-XL) and proapoptotic (BAX, BAD) genes were studied by real-time reverse-transcription polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR). Gene expression levels of BCL-2 (P gene expression levels of BCL-2 (p gene expression levels differed significantly between postmenopausal women with and without POP. Bcl-2 family genes were overexpressed in the parametrium of patients with POP compared with vaginal tissue, suggesting that the processes responsible for POP have a greater effect on parametrial tissue than vaginal tissue during the development of POP.

In 30 out of the 47 patients, recurrence was diagnosed within 2 years after surgery. Site of recurrence was vagina in 19 patients, vagina and parametrium in 21 patients and parametrium only in 7 patients. Complete tumor control was achieved in 35 patients (74.5%) ; the complete response rates were 94.7% (18/19( in vaginal recurrences, 57.1% (12/21) in combined vaginal and parametrial recurrences and 71.4% (5/7) in parametrial recurrences. Overall and disease free survival rates at 4 years were 55.2 and 50.1 percent, respectively, for entire group. Overall 4 year survival rates were 77.0% for vaginal recurrences, 44.1% for vaginal and parametrial recurrences and 42.9% for parametrial recurrences. When the disease extent was classified in the same way as the staging system of FIGO, the 4 year survival was 80.4, 73.0, 25.0 and 0 percent for stage IIa, IIb and IVa, respectively

    Six experimental studies are discussed, involving the application of oxygen concentration cells using the solid electrolyte ZrO{sub 2} * CaO (providing pure anion conduction as migration of oxygen defects) to basic research in process metallurgy: (1) The standard free energies of formation of FeO, Fe{sub 3}O{sub 4}, SnO, PbO, Cu{sub 2}O, CuO and Ta{sub 2}O{sub 5} have been measured and expressed as functions of temperature in the range 500 to 1300 Degree-Sign C. (2) The oxygen pressure in liquid PbO-SiO{sub 2} solution has been measured at 800 to 1100 Degree-Sign C: the chemical activities of PbO and SiO{sub 2} and thermodynamic properties of PbO-SiO{sub 2} solution have been calculated. (3) One of the authors has measured the chemical activity of tin in liquid Pb-Sn binary solution at 700 to 900 Degree-Sign C, and the thermodynamic properties of Pb-Sn alloys have been calculated. (4) This author has also developed an oxygen gauge to measure the partial pressure of oxygen in high temperature gases in the range of P(O{sub 2}) = 10{sup -1} to 10{sup -20} atm and 500-1300 Degree-Sign C. Self-consistent and reproducible EMF values with various gas mixtures have been obtained. (5) The rates of oxidation or reduction of pure iron and iron oxides by CO-CO{sub 2} gas mixture were calculated from the EMF results obtained with the oxygen gauge at 900-1000 Degree-Sign C. (6) The oxygen pressure in liquid iron, containing various amounts of carbon up to the saturation value, or saturated with oxygen, has been measured with the reference electrodes of graphite or (Ni + NiO) powder. It appears that this method could be used to determine the oxygen content in liquid iron at 1500-1600 Degree-Sign C. In addition, possibilities for applying oxygen concentration cells to the basic study of process metallurgy have been suggested and industrial applications have also been discussed. (author) [French] Le memoire a trait a six travaux de recherche fondamentale sur les processus metallurgiques, faits au moyen des cellules a concentration d'oxygene avec electrolyte de ZrO{sub 2} * CaO, lequel assure une conduction anionique pure grace a la migration de defauts d'oxygene. Ces travaux sont les suivants: 1. Les energies libres types de formation de FeO, Fe{sub 3}O{sub 4}, SnO, PbO, Cu{sub 2}O, CuO et Ta{sub 2}O{sub 5} ont ete mesurees pour des temperatures de 500 a 1300 Degree-Sign C et exprimees en fonction de la temperature, les valeurs obtenues etant comparees aux donnees publiees. 2. La pression d'oxygene dans la solution liquide PbO-SiO{sub 2} a ete mesuree pour des temperatures de 800 a 1100 Degree-Sign C, l'equilibre etant realise a l'aide de plomb a l'etat liquide. Les activites chimiques de PbO et SiO{sub 2}, ainsi que les proprietes thermodynamiques de la solution ont ete determinees. 3. L'un des auteurs a mesure l'activite chimique de l'etain dans une solution liquide binaire de Pb-Sn pour des temperatures de 700 a 900 Degree-Sign C. Il a determine par des calculs les proprietes thermodynamiques d'alliages Pb-Sn. 4. En outre, il a mis au point un manometre a oxygene' pour mesurer la pression partielle de l'oxygene dans les gaz a haute temperature (500 a 1300 Degree-Sign C)dans l'intervalle 10{sup -1} a 10{sup -20} atm. Il a obtenu des valeurs autoconsistantes et reproductibles pour la force.electromotrice avec des melanges gazeux differents. 5. Les vitesses d'oxydation ou de reduction du fer pur et des oxydes de fer par un melange gazeux CO-CO{sub 2} ont ete mesurees au moyen du manometre entre 900 et 1000 Degree-Sign C. 6. Au moyen des electrodes de reference en graphite ou en poudre de (Ni + NiO), on a mesure la pression d'oxygene dans du fer a l'etat liquide, a differents teneurs en carbone, sature d'oxygene. Il semble que cette methode pourrait servir a determiner la teneur en oxygene du fer a l'etat liquide entre 1500 a 1600 Degree-Sign C. Enfin, les auteurs indiquent d'autres possibilites pour l'emploi de cellules a concentration d'oxygene dans les etudes fondamentales sur les processus metallurgiques, et ils discutent aussi leur application industrielle. (author) [Spanish] Se presentan en la memoria seis trabajos experimentales relacionados con la aplicacion de las celdas de concentracion de oxigeno con electrolito de ZrO{sub 2} * CaO (que permite una conduccion amonica pura debida a la migracion de defectos de oxigeno) a tareas de investigacion basica en procesos metalurgicos. 1. Se midieron las energias libres tipo de formacion del FeO, Fe{sub 3}O{sub 4}, SnO, PbO, Cu{sub 2}O, CuO y Ta{sub 2}O{sub 5} y se expresan mediante funciones de la temperatura en el intervalo 500 Degree-Sign - 1300 Degree-Sign C. 2. Se midio de 800 Degree-Sign a 1100 Degree-Sign C la tension de oxigeno en solucion liquida de PbO-SiO{sub 2}: se calcularon las actividades quimicas del PbO y del SiO{sub 2}, y tambien las propiedades termodinamicas, de la solucion de Pb0-Si02. 3. Uno de los autores de la presente memoria midio la actividad quimica del estano en una solucion binaria liquida Pb-Sn de 700 Degree-Sign a 900 Degree-Sign C y calculo las propiedades termodinamicas de las aleaciones Pb-Sn. 4. Este autor ha disenado ademas un manometro de oxigeno para medir la presion parcial del oxigeno en los gases a temperaturas elevadas (de 500 Degree-Sign - 1300 Degree-Sign C) en el intervalo 10{sup -1} a 10{sup -20} atm. Se han obtenido valores coherentes y reproducibles para las fuerzas electromotrices con varias mezclas gaseosas. 5. Partiendo de los resultados EMF obtenidos con el manometro de oxigeno se calcularon las velocidades de oxidacion o reduccion del hierro puro y de los oxidos de hierro por accion de una mezcla gaseosa de CO-CO{sub 2}, a 900 Degree-Sign - 1000 Degree-Sign C. 6. Usando electrodos de referencia de grafito o polvo de (Ni + NiO) se midio la presion del oxigeno en hierro liquido que contenia diversas cantidades de carbon hasta el valor de saturacion, o bien estaba saturado con oxigeno o grafito, Es evidente que este metodo podria utilizarse para determinar el contenido de oxigeno en hierro liquido a 1500 Degree-Sign - 1600 Degree-Sign C. Ademas, se sugieren posibilidades de aplicar las celdas de concentracion de oxigeno al estudio basico de procesos metalurgicos, y se analizan diversas aplicaciones industriales.

    In developing the concept of the HTGR and its first prototype at Peach Bottom, General Atomic made the decision that a critical experiment was required to provide adequately certain necessary input data for the nuclear analysis. The specific needs of the nuclear design theory for input data relating to thorium absorptions led to an experimental design consisting of a central lattice-type critical assembly with surrounding buffer and driver regions. This type of assembly, in which the spectrum of interest can be established in the relatively small central lattice having a desired geometry, provides a useful tool for obtaining a variety of input data for nuclear analysis surveys of new concepts. The particular advantages of this approach over that of constructing a mock-up assembly will be discussed, as well as the role of the theory in determining what experiments are most useful and how these experiments are then used in verifying design techniques. Two relatively new techniques were developed for use in the lattice assembly. These were a reactivity oscillation technique for determining the thorium Doppler coefficient, and an activation technique for determining both the resonance integral of thorium dispersed in graphite and its temperature dependence (activation Doppler coefficient). The Doppler coefficient measurement by reactivity oscillation utilized the entire central fuel element in a technique which permitted heating this fuel element to 800 Degree-Sign F and accurately subtracting experimentally the thermal-base effects, that is, those effects not contributing to the thorium resonance capture. Comparison of results with theory for a range of conditions shows excellent agreement. The measurement of the thorium resonance integral and its temperature dependence will be described. The technique developed for measuring resonance capture makes use of gold as the standard and vanadium as die material giving the 1/v absorption rate. This technique is dictated by the fact that the thorium is dispersed in graphite and the usual cadmium-ratio technique is difficult to apply. Comparison of experimental and theoretical results shows excellent agreement over a range of variables. In addition, the results of both activation and reactivity measurements of Doppler coefficient are in agreement, a fact which is felt to be significant in view of the disparity between results from these two techniques in the literature. (author) [French] Lors de l'etude du reacteur HTGR a haute temperature refroidi par un gaz, et de son premier prototype a Peach Bottom, la General Atomic Division de la societe General Dynamics a decide qu'il fallait proceder a une experience critique pour obtenir certaines donnees d'entree necessaires pour l'analyse nucleaire. Aux fins de l'etude nucleaire theorique, les besoins particuliers en donnees d'entree relatives aux absorptions par le thorium ont amene les ingenieurs a concevoir un assemblage experimental critique compose d'un reseau central entoure d*une region tampon et d'une region de commande. Ce type.d'assemblage, dans lequel on peut creer le spectre a mesurer dans le reseau central relativement petit ayant la geometrie voulue, permet d'obtenir des donnees d'entree tres diverses pour les etudes de projets nouveaux, au point de vue de l'analyse nucleaire. Le memoire indique les avantages particuliers que presente cette methode par rapport a celle qiu consiste a construire une maquette, ainsi que le role de la theorie pour determiner quelles experiences sont le plus utiles et comment utiliser ensuite ces experiences dans la verification des procedes d'etude. Les auteurs ont mis au point deux methodes relativement nouvelles qui peuvent etre utilisees avec l'assemblage decrit ci-dessus: une methode d'oscillation de la reactivite pour determiner le coefficient Doppler pour le thorium; une methode d'activation pour determiner a la fois l'integrale de resonance pour le thorium disperse dans le graphite et ses variations en fonction de la temperature (coefficient Doppler d'activation). Pour mesurer le coefficient Doppler par oscillation de la reactivite, on se sert de la totalite de la cartouche centrale au cours d'une operation qui permet de la porter a une temperature pouvant atteindre 425 Degree-Sign C et d'eliminer experimentalement les effets qui ne contribuent pas a la capture de neutrons de resonance par le thorium. Pour toute une gamme d'experiences, les resultats obtenus concordent bien avec les resultats theoriques. Le memoire decrit la mesure de l'integrale de resonance pour le thorium et ses variations en fonction de la temperature. Dans le procede que l'on a mis au point pour mesurer la capture de resonance, on utilise l'or comme etalon et le vanadium comme matiere donnant le taux d'absorption en 1/v. Ce procede a ete choisi parce que le thorium est disperse dans le graphite et qu'il est difficile d'appliquer le procede habituel du rapport cadmium. Les resultats empiriques concordent bien avec les resultats theoriques dans une large gamme de variables. En outre, les resultats des mesures du coefficient Doppler par les deux methodes (oscillation de la reactivite et activation) concordent. Les auteurs estiment que ce fait merite d'etre releve, car dans les ouvrages publies jusqu'ici ces deux procedes donnaient des resultats differents. (author) [Spanish] Al definir los principios teoricos del reactor de elevada temperatura refrigerado por gas, y de su primer prototipo en Peach Bottom, la General Atomic decidio efectuar un experimento critico con miras a reunir ciertos datos de entrada requeridos para el analisis nuclear. Debido a las necesidades especificas de la teoria de las construcciones nucleares, en lo que atane a los datos de entrada acerca de la absorcion del torio, los autores elaboraron un sistema experimental formado por un conjunto critico con reticulado central rodeado por una region amortiguadora y otra activado'. Este tipo de conjunto, en el que el espectro que se ha de analizar puede limitarse al reticulado central relativamente pequeno, y cuya geometria puede determinarse a voluntad, permite obtener diversos datos de entrada para los estudios relativos a analisis nucleares de instalaciones nuevas. Los autores describen las ventajas de este metodo en comparacion con el de una maqueta y la funcion de la teoria, consistente en determinar cuales son los experimentos mas utiles y la manera en que deben utilizarse para comprobar los proyectos. Los autores elaboraron dos tecnicas relativamente nuevas para su utilizacion en un conjunto dotado de reticulado. Una se basa en la tecnica de oscilacion de la reactividad para determinar el coeficiente Doppler correspondiente al torio, y la otra en la activacion para determinar la integral de resonancia del torio dispersado en el grafito y su variacion en funcion de la temperatura (coeficiente Doppler de activacion). Para medir el coeficiente Doppler por oscilacion de la reactividad, se utilizo todo el elemento combustible situado en el centro, calentando este elemento hasta 800 Degree-Sign F y procediendo a una sustraccion experimental exacta de los efectos que no contribuyen a la captura por resonancia en el torio. Los resultados obtenidos concuerdan satisfactoriamente con los valores teoricos en diversas condiciones. Los autores describen la medicion de la integral de resonancia en el torio y su variacion en funcion de la temperatura. En la tecnica que han elaborado para medir la captura por resonancia, se utiliza oro como patron y vanadio como el material que cumple la ley 1/v. La eleccion de esta tecnica obedece al hecho de que el torio se dispersa en el grafito y a la dificultad de aplicar el metodo basado en la razon cadmica. Los resultadoe experimentales concuerdan con los teoricos en diversas condiciones. Asimismo, concuerdan entre si las mediciones del efecto Doppler efectuadas por activacion y la realizadas por determinacion de la reactividad, lo que se considera significativo debido a que en las obras publicadas subsiste cierta divergencia en los resultados obtenidos con ambas tecnicas.

    Radiation decontamination, particularly of proteinaceous staple foods of low water activity, seemed to be promising, as one of the first applications of ionizing energy in food ancieed processing because of (a) restricted radiochemical damage to the commodities concerned; (b) absence of microbial proliferation subsequent to irradiation; and (c) some, often unique, technological advantages, such as applicability to materials already packaged, e.g. mixed feed ingredients, and effective decontamination without simultaneously- losing freshness, as in the case of red meats and poultry. As a first step, laboratory-scale dose range-finding experiments in this area were carried out earlier with, at the same time, sub-acute testing for wholesomeness. The results of these experiments were very promising. Pilot-plant-scale tests were next carried out, while concurrently research on wholesomeness was extended to a full two years/three generations assay with rats. In these tests it was confirmed that a dose of the order of 0.7 {+-} 0.1 Mrad suffices for the elimination of Salmonellae from frozen and dried proteinaceous products, such as chickens, fish meal and mixed feed. If, for reasons of analytical facility, a negative Enterobacteriaceae test for representative numbers of samples of the order of 10 g of radicidized material were preferred, the radiation dose would have to be slightly raised; the strict maximum would then amount to 1.0 Mrad, e.g. when mixed feeds, initially containing higher numbers of relatively radiation-resistant, pigmented Enterobacter strains were to be treated. No consistent, radiation-dependent, untoward effects on the experimental animals used, i.e. rats and, to a lesser extent, piglets, was detected at any of the irradiation levels tested. It is, therefore, concluded that the third evaluation step can now be undertaken, that is: tentative commercial-scale decontamination experiments in the region of production. Latin American countries like Argentina and Peru might be the most promising areas for the first tests of this sort, as they are amongst the greatest exporters of some of the commodities that are most frequently found contaminated with Salmonellae (frozen boneless horse meat, and fish and cottonseed meals), while having generally well- equipped laboratories and reasonably well-trained graduate staff available. A 50 000-Ci source of {sup 60}Co, or an X-ray machine of a similar output, may be successfully used in such test runs. Microbiological evaluation techniques for routinely controlling the efficacy of such irradiation treatments have already been worked out and tested under pilot plant conditions. Finally, wherever possible, the merits of these radicidation treatments should be experimentally compared with those of competitive, conventional processing methods, such as pelleting in the decontamination of feed ingredients; this approach would make it possible for the industries concerned to take their decisions at the completion of the first commercial-scale tests. (author) [French] La decontamination par les rayonnements, notamment celle des denrees proteiques de base a faible activite chimique de la teneur en eau est apparue comme une des premieres applications prometteuses de l'energie ionisante au traitement des denrees alimentaires destinees a la consommation humaine ou animale; les raisons en sont les suivantes: a) alteration radio chimique limitee des denrees en question; b) absence de toute proliferation microbienne apres irradiation; c) avantages techniques souvent exceptionnels, telle la possibilite d'application a des produits deja empaquetes, par exemple aux constituants de melanges alimentaires pour animaux, et la decontamination efficace sans alteration simultanee de la fraicheur, notamment dans le cas des viandes rouges et de la volaille. Comme premiere etape, on a procede anterieurement a des experiences en laboratoire en vue de determiner les diverses doses necessaires et de verifier simultanement la comestibilite apres irradiation a des doses sous-critiques. Les donnees obtenues etant fort prometteuses, on a procede ensuite a des essais dans des installations pilotes en entreprenant en meme temps une etude de la comestibilite sur des rats pendant deux annees entieres (trois generations). Ces essais ont confirme qu'une dose de l'ordre de 0,7 i 0,1 Mrad suffisait amplement pour detruire les Salmonellae dans les produits proteiques congeles ou deshydrates tels que poulets, farines de poisson ou melanges alimentaires pour animaux. Lorsque, pour des raisons de facilite d'analyse, on etait amene a preferer un test entero-bacterien negatif pour un nombre representatif d'echantillons de l'ordre de 10 g de matieres traitees par radicidation, il fallait augmenter l'egerement la dose de rayonnement; la dose maximale strictement necessaire s'elevait alors a 1,0 Mrad, par exemple lorsqu'il s'agissait de traiter des melanges alimentaires pour animaux, contenant initialement un grand nombre de souches de bacteries intestinales pigmentees a radioresistance relativement elevee. Quel que fut le niveau d'irradiation, aucun des essais n'a permis de detecter un effet radioinduit defavorable se reproduisant regulierement chez les rats et encore moins chez les jeunes potes utilises pour les experiences. On peut donc conclure qu'il est desormais possible de passer a la troisieme etape d'evaluation, c'est-a-dire aux essais de decontamination a l'echelle industrielle dans les regions productrices. Les pays d'Amerique latine, tels que l'Argentine et le Perou, peuvent presenter un grand interet pour les premiers essais de ce genre du fait qu'ils figurent parmi les plus grands exportateurs de plusieurs des produits frequemment contamines de Salmonellae (viande de cheval desossee congelee et produits a base de poisson et de grains de coton), et qu'ils disposent generalement de laboratoires bien equipes et d'un personnel diplome suffisamment competent. Au cours de ces essais on pourrait utiliser avec succes des sources de 50 000 Ci au cobalt-60 ou un appareil a rayons X d'une puissance analogue. On a d'ores et deja elabore et verifie dans des installations-pilotes des methodes d'evaluation microbiologiques permettant de controler regulierement l'efficacite de ces traitements par irradiation. Enfin, toutes les fois ou cela se revele possible, les avantages de ces traitements par radicidation devraient faire l'objet de comparaisons experimentales avec les methodes de traitement classiques competitives telles que rechauffement par agglomeration dans le'cas de la decontamination des constituants de produits alimentaires pour animaux; cette maniere de proceder permettra en outre aux industries interessees de prendre leurs decisions apres achevement des premiers essais a l'echelle commerciale. (author) [Spanish] La radiodescontaminacion de los alimentos proteicos basicos de escaso contenido de agua residual parece ser una de las primeras aplicaciones interesantes de las radiaciones al tratamiento de los alimentos del hombre y de los animales debido a las pocas alteraciones radioquimicas producidas en los alimentos tratados, a la ausencia de una proliferacion microbiana subsiguiente a la irradiacion, y a ciertasiventajas tecnologicas inherentes a ese procedimiento: la posibilidad de tratar productos ya empaquetados (mezclas de ingredientes de alimentos para animales) y la eficacia de la decontaminacion sin que los alimentos dejen de ser frescos, como en el caso de la carne roja y de la carne blanca. Para empezar se efectuaron experimentos de laboratorio con objeto de determinar la escala de las dosis y se llevaron a cabo algunos ensayos sobre comestibilidad. Como los resultados experimentales fueron muy prometedores, se hicieron ensayos en planta piloto y los estudios sobre comestibilidad se extendieron a dos anos utilizando tres generaciones de ratas. Estos ensayos confirmaron que una dosis del orden de 0,7 {+-} 0,1 Mrad basta para eliminar las Salmonellae de los productos proteicos congelados y deshidratados: pollos, harina de pescado, mezclas de alimentos para animales. Si por razones de comodidad analitica, se prefiriese un ensayo negativo de Enterobacteriaciae para un numero representativo de muestras del orden de 10 g de sustancias radicidadas, habria que aumentar algo la dosis, que seria entonces de 1,0 Mrad como maximo, para las mezclas de alimentos destinados a los animales, que en principio contienen un numero mas elevado de cepas pigmentadas de Enterobacteriaciae relativamente radiorresistentes. Con las dosis ensayadas no se ha observado ningun efecto perjudicial de las radiaciones en los animales de laboratorio utilizados (ratas y, en menor medida, cerdos jovenes). Puede iniciarse ya la tercera etapa, que consistira en experimentos de descontaminacion en escala comercial efectuados en las zonas de produccion. Algunos paises latinoamericanos tales como la Argentina y el Peru podrian ser las regiones mas adecuadas para efectuar los primeros ensayos de esta indole, pues figuran entre los mayores exportadores de algunos de los productos que con frecuencia estan contaminados por las Salmonellae (carne de caballo congelada y desosada, harinas de pescado y de semilla de algodon), y al mismo tiempo disponen de laboratorios bien equipados y de personal competente. Para estos ensayos puede utilizarse con exito una fuente de {sup 60}Co de 50 000 Ci o un aparato de rayos X de capacidad analoga. Se han elaborado ya, o se estan ensayando en planta piloto, algunas techicas de evaluacion microbiologica para controlar la eficacia de este tipo de irradiacion. Por ultimo, siempre que sea posible, habra que comparar experimentalmente las ventajas de esta radicidacion con otros metodos tradicionales de tratamiento, por ejemplo, la descontaminacion por el calor al fabricar aglomerados con ingredientes de los alimentos de animales. Esto permitira que las industrias interesadas tomen sus decisiones al terminar los primeros ensayos en escala comercial.

    Transrectal sonography is helpful in the classification of parametrial infiltration prior to treatment as well as in the follow-up. In this study, we performed rectal sonography in cases of inoperable cervical cancer to objectify the reduction of the infiltration of the uterine cervix and of the parametrium. Rectosonography was performed in 10 patients with histologically confirmed cancer of the uterine cervix before and after radiation treatment. The patients were treated with brachytherapy and teletherapy with an average radiation dose of 7680 rad. The whole therapy was finished after 6 to 9 weeks. Rectosonography enabled us to objectify the effect of radiation therapy. The length and width of parametrial infiltration could be measured in relation to the pelvis wall. Furthermore, the configuration of the parametrium could be imaged. Therefore, in cervical cancer, rectosonography is a valuable method to check and the documentate the effect of treatment and to diagnose recurrency. (orig.) [de

    We wished to evaluate the diagnostic usefulness of dynamic MRI in assessing tumor visualization and the parametrial invasion of cervical cancer, and we also wished to determine the most adequate enhancing time by comparing the T2-weighted image (T2WI) and enhanced T1-weighted image (Gd-T1WI). Fifty-three women with histopathologically proven cervical cancer underwent a preoperative MRI. Using a 1.5 T magnet, the fast spin echo axial T2WI without fat saturation was taken; after contrast administration, 20, 40, 60, 90, 120 sec-dynamic MRIs were taken using fast SPGR and spin echo axial Gd-T1WI. Tumor conspicuity and parametrial invasion in each pulse sequence and the most adequate enhancing time for the evaluation of the tumor on dynamic MRI were evaluated prospectively by three radiologists working at three separate sessions. The results were then correlated with the histopathologic findings. The conspicuity of tumor on dynamic MRI (99.4%) and T2WI (95.6%) were better than on Gd-T1WI (89.3%). In the assessment of parametrial invasion of the tumor, the diagnostic accuracy of dynamic MRI, Gd-T1WI and T2WI was 79.9%, 78% and 76.1%, respectively; the highest values were for the dynamic MRI, but there was no statistically significant difference among three pulse sequences. The most adequate enhancing time on dynamic MRI was between 90 seconds and 120 seconds. Dynamic MRI is useful for the assessment of tumor visualization of cervical cancer, and the most appropriate scan time on dynamic MRI is between 90 seconds and 120 seconds. For the determination of parametrial invasion, the dynamic MRI revealed a higher diagnostic accuracy than that of T2WI or Gd-T1WI, but the differences were statistically insignificant

    The purpose of the study was to compare laparoscopic total radical hysterectomy with classic radical hysterectomy regarding parametrial, and vaginal resection, and lymphadenectomy. Laparoscopic or laparotomic total radical hysterectomy with advantages and disadvantages was offered to the patients diagnosed as having operable cervical cancer between 2007 and 2010. Lymph node status, resection of the parametria and vagina, and margin positivity were recorded for both groups. Data were collected prospectively. Statistical analysis was performed with the SPSS statistical software program. Totally, 53 cases had classical abdominal radical hysterectomy and 35 laparoscopic radical hysterectomy, respectively. Parametrial involvement was detected in four (11.4%) cases in laparoscopic radical surgery versus nine (16.9%) in laparatomic surgery. All the cases with parametrial involvement had free surgical margins of tumor. Also there were no significant statistical differences in lymph node number and metastasis between the two groups. There is no difference in anatomical considerations between laparoscopic and laparatomic radical surgery in the surgical management of cervical cancer.

    To prove the usefulness of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in determining the invasion of uterine cervical cancer with imaging planes, we evaluated 44 patients with histologically proved cervical cancer. MRI was performed with a Signa 1.5 T (General Electric), and a T 2 -weighted image was used. In coronal planes, the accuracy was 75.0% for parametrial invasion. It was impossible to diagnose in 77.8%, 92.1% and 63.2% the invasion of the uterine body, bladder, and rectum, respectively. In axial planes, the accuracy was 76.3%, 92.1% and 78.9% for the invasion of parametrium, bladder and rectum, respectively. It was impossible to diagnose in 72.2% the invasion of the uterine body. In sagittal planes, the accuracy was 80.6%, 97.4% and 89.7% for invasion of the uterine body, bladder and rectum, respectively. In all 39 cases it was impossible to diagnose parametrial invasion. In five cases, MRI failed to detect the tumor in any of the three planes, but in three cases it was able to detect the tumor in at least one of the three. We conclude as follows: MRI is a useful method in determining the invasion of cervical cancer. Coronal planes are recommended for the determination of parametrial invasion, axial planes for the parametrium, bladder and rectum, and sagittal planes for the uterine body, bladder and rectum. All three planes are needed to determine cervical cancer. (author)

    Purpose: To review the National Cancer Database (NCDB) to evaluate postoperative high-risk cervical cancer patients for factors associated with a benefit from chemoradiation therapy (CRT) over external beam radiation therapy alone (EBRT). Methods and Materials: The National Cancer Database was queried for women with cervical cancer treated with hysterectomy and adjuvant EBRT from 2002 to 2012. Only patients with pathologic lymph node involvement (LN+), positive surgical margins, and/or parametrial invasion were included in our analysis (on the basis of Peter's criteria). Univariable and multivariable analyses (MVA) were performed, and hazard ratios (HRs) with 95% confidence intervals (CIs) were calculated to investigate for factors associated with of CRT utilization and overall survival (OS). Results: A total of 3053 patients met inclusion criteria, and 2479 received adjuvant CRT (81%), whereas 574 (19%) received EBRT alone. Factors associated with increased CRT utilization on MVA included age <69 years, year of diagnosis ≥2008, non-adenocarcinoma histology, and LN+. Use of CRT improved OS among the entire cohort on MVA (HR 0.76, CI 0.601-0.962; P=.022). On MVA, CRT improved OS in patients with LN+ as their sole Peter's criteria (HR 0.58, CI 0.413-0.814; P=.002). Chemoradiation therapy did not improve OS in patients with only positive margins (P=.73), only parametrial invasion (P=.95), or any combination of these 2 factors without LN+ (P=.63). Conclusions: The use of adjuvant CRT after hysterectomy improves OS in patients with high-risk cervical cancer compared with EBRT alone, but this benefit seems to be restricted to patients with LN+. The benefits of adjuvant CRT over EBRT alone in patients with parametrial invasion and/or positive margins (without nodal involvement) are unknown.

    Purpose: To assess the importance of the information obtained from MRI for adaptive cervix cancer radiotherapy. Patients and methods: 49 patients with cervix cancer, treated by external-beam radiotherapy (EBRT) and MRI-assisted high-dose-rate brachytherapy ± concomitant cisplatin, underwent MRI at diagnosis and at the time of brachytherapy fractions. 190 MRI examinations were performed. Pretreatment scans were correlated with clinical examination (CE) findings. Measurements in 3-D of the tumor extension and also of the distance from the tumor to the pelvic side wall were performed using both MRI and CE. The tumor volume regression induced initially by EBRT and the subsequent regression after each brachytherapy fraction were assessed. Results: MRI and CE showed 92% agreement in overall parametrial staging and 73% agreement in terms of vaginal involvement. There was, however, disagreement in parametrial side (right/left) classification in 25% of the parametria examined. These were patients with unilateral displacement of the cervix and contralateral invasion of the parametrium. The mean tumor volume on the pretreatment MRI scan (GTVD) was 61 cm 3 . At the time of the four brachytherapy fractions the mean was 16 cm 3 , 10 cm 3 , 9 cm 3 , and 8 cm 3 , defined as the GTVBT plus the gray zones in the parametria. Conclusion: CE and MRI findings agree well in terms of overall staging. The clinical assessment of side-specific parametrial invasion improved when having access to the additional knowledge obtained from MRI. The greatest decrease in tumor volume occurs during EBRT, whereas tumor regression between the first and subsequent brachytherapy fractions is minor. (orig.)

    Forty MR imaging examinations in 38 patients with newly diagnosed or recurrent squamous cell carcinoma of the cervix were retrospectively evaluated and compared with clinical and surgical findings for staging. There was poor correlation between loss of fat planes and extension of tumor into the rectum or bladder, and it was impossible to differentiate bladder edema from direct invasion. MR imaging underestimated parametrial and pelvic sidewall extension when compared with physical exam under anesthesia. MR imaging was useful in the direct demonstration of a cervical mass and in detecting enlarged pelvic nodes

    Opacification of collateral pathways other than the central channels is very rare in lumbar epidural venography. Two cases of opacification of the inferior mesenteric vein following extravasation of contrast medium at the tip of the lateral sacral vein catheter are reported. One case is presented in which filling of normal parametrial venous plexuses and the left ovarian vein occurred as a consequence of incompetent or absent valves in the internal iliac vein. The literature containing comparable collateral flow patterns in disease is reviewed. The significance of the phlebographic features in our cases is discussed. (orig.)

    20 lactating ewes were allotted to two groups: 10 subjects received orally 100 mg/day of CdCl{sub 2} for 108 consecutive days, and the remaining 10 acted as control. Reproductive performance in ewes and cadmium tissue accumulation, both in ewes and their lambs, were investigated. The results showed that in ewes: 1) the regular cadmium intestinal intake negatively influences all reproductive parameters; 2) cadmium is particularly accumulated in kidney and liver, bur also in mammary gland, although at distinctly lower level; 3) chronic administration does not increase cadmium placental transfer in lactating pregnant subjects. [Italian] 20 pecore in lattazione sono state suddivise in 2 gruppi: 10 soggetti ricevettero per os 100 mg/giorno di CdCl{sub 2} per 108 giorni consecutivi, e i restanti 10 funsero da controllo. Sono stati studiati i parametri riproduttivi delle pecore e l'accumulo di cadmio nei tessuti, sia delle pecore che dei loro agnelli. I risultati hanno mostrato che negli ovini: 1) il regolare assorbimento intestinale di cadmio influenza negativamente tutti i parametri riproduttivi; 2) il cadmio viene accumulato principalmente nei reni e nel fegato, ma anche dalla ghiandola mammaria, sebbene in misura nettamente inferiore; 3) la somministrazione cronica di cadmio nei soggetti gravidi non incrementa il suo passaggio transplacentare.

    Purpose: To compare high-resolution contrast-enhanced (Gd-DTPA) dynamic MR imaging with T2-weighted turbo spin-echo (TSE) imaging in the evaluation of uterine cervical carcinoma. Material and Methods: Thirty-two patients with cervical carcinoma underwent MR imaging on a 1.5 T superconductive unit to have the extension of the disease assessed before treatment. A phased-array coil was used in all patients. In 25 patients, surgical confirmation of the diagnosis was obtained after imaging. Radiation therapy was selected for the remaining 7 patients with advanced carcinoma. Qualitative and quantitative image analyses were also performed. Results: The cervical carcinomas showed maximum contrast in the cervical stroma and myometrium in the early dynamic phase. The tumor/cervical-stroma contrast in the early dynamic phase obtained with the T1-weighted TSE technique (contrast-to-noise ratio 22.6) was significantly higher than that obtained in T2-weighted TSE imaging (contrast-to-noise ratio 4.3). In the evaluation of parametrial invasion, the accuracy of T2-weighted imaging was 71.8% and contrast-enhanced dynamic imaging 81.2%. Conclusion: High-resolution contrast-enhanced (Gd-DTPA) dynamic MR imaging in cervical cancer offers improved tumor/cervical-stroma contrast and provides useful information on parametrial invasion.

    The Oncology Grand Rounds series is designed to place original reports published in the Journal into clinical context. A case presentation is followed by a description of diagnostic and management challenges, a review of the relevant literature, and a summary of the authors' suggested management approaches. The goal of this series is to help readers better understand how to apply the results of key studies, including those published in Journal of Clinical Oncology, to patients seen in their own clinical practice. A 55-year-old postmenopausal woman, gravida 5 para 5, with past medical history significant for hypertension, presented to the emergency department with profuse vaginal bleeding and a hemoglobin level of 9 g/dL. The biopsy from an irregular 6-cm cervical mass was consistent with moderately differentiated cervical squamous cell carcinoma. The physical examination did not reveal vaginal or parametrial extension of the tumor. Pelvic magnetic resonance imaging disclosed the known carcinoma, as well as a 9.2 × 7.7 × 6.7 cm anterior uterine fibroid (Fig 1). A staging positron emission tomography scan was negative for metastatic disease. After blood transfusion and vaginal packing, the patient was referred to discuss the immediate management of her newly diagnosed bleeding bulky cervical cancer. In the absence of parametrial or vaginal extension and in the absence of lymph node metastasis (both on clinical examination and imaging), she was classified as having International Federation of Gynecology and Obstetrics stage IB2 disease.

    This is a retrospective analysis of 148 patients with histologically proven carcinoma of the cervix, stage III, treated with irradiation. All patients received external irradiation with cobalt 60 followed by intracavitary radium application. The median age was 55 years. Squamous cell carcinoma was found in 96.5% of the cases. The 8-year actuarial survival rate was 41%. Bilateral parametrial invasion proved to be a strong prognostic factor. Patients with unilateral disease had a survival rate of 43% whereas in those with bilateral involvement it was only 15% (P less than 0.005). The total pelvic failure rate was 29.5%. The overall incidence of distant metastasis was 11%. The complication rate (minor and major complications) was high, with vaginal stenosis (22.5%), proctitis (21.5%), cystitis (13.5%), and fistulae (4%) occurring in 33, 32, 20, and 6 patients, respectively. New treatment modalities are urgently needed for advanced carcinoma of the cervix. Bilateral parametrial involvement is an unfavorable prognostic factor and this should be kept in mind when designing new protocols

    In uterine cervical canal carcinoma, the current clinical FIGO criteria often fail not only to differentiate stage IA2 from stage IB but also to demonstrate possible parametrial involvement. Moreover, the analysis of tumor volume and of the depth of neoplastic stromal invasion is not very reliable. The authors investigated MR accuracy in the definition of such variables: to this purpose, 24 patients with histologically confirmed endocervical adenocarcinoma were submitted to MRI, which was performed with an 0.5-T superconductive magnet. Sagittal and oblique transverse or sometimes coronal SE images, oriented so as to be perpendicular to longitudinal cervical major axis were obtained with T2 weighting (TR 1800 ms, TE 25-90 ms). MR data were correlated with pathologic findings. MR accuracy in demonstrating parametrial involvement was 92%, its sensitivity was 86% and specificity 97%. Volumetric MR data showed a high correlation (r = 0.970) with those derived from pathologic findings. In 92% of cases stromal invasion exceeded 5 mm. MRI, thanks to its high accuracy, should be included in diagnostic pretreatment protocols, even though FIGO criteria do not require it yet, especially in the presence of an endocervical adenocarcinoma. Moreover, the accurate definition of tumor volume can allow less extensive surgery with the same survival rates and fewer complications, which are frequently observed after radical hysterectomy.

    Purpose: This retrospective analysis aims to report results of patients with cervix cancer treated by external beam radiotherapy (EBR) and high-dose-rate (HDR) brachytherapy. Methods and Materials: From September 1992 to December 1996, 138 patients with FIGO Stages II and III and mean age of 56 years were treated. Median EBR to the whole pelvis was 45 Gy in 25 fractions. Parametrial boost was performed in 93% of patients, with a median dose of 14.4 Gy. Brachytherapy with HDR was performed during EBR or following its completion with a dose of 24 Gy in four weekly fractions of 6 Gy to point A. Median overall treatment time was of 60 days. Patient age, tumor stage, and overall treatment time were variables analyzed for survival and local control. Cumulative biologic effective dose (BED) at rectal and bladder reference points were correlated with late complications in these organs and dose of EBR at parametrium was correlated with small bowel complications. Results: Median follow-up time was 38 months. Overall survival, disease-free survival, and local control at 5 years was 53.7%, 52.7%, and 62%, respectively. By multivariate and univariate analysis, overall treatment time up to 50 days was the only statistically significant adverse variable for overall survival (p=0.003) and actuarial local control (p=0.008). The 5-year actuarial incidence of rectal, bladder, and small bowel late complications was 16%, 11%, and 14%, respectively. Patients treated with cumulative BED at rectum points above 110 Gy 3 and at bladder point above 125 Gy 3 had a higher but not statistically significant 5-year actuarial rate of complications at these organs (18% vs. 12%, p=0.49 and 17% vs. 9%, p=0.20, respectively). Patients who received parametrial doses larger than 59 Gy had a higher 5-year actuarial rate of complications in the small bowel; however, this was not statistically significant (19% vs. 10%, p=0.260). Conclusion: This series suggests that 45 Gy to the whole pelvis combined with

    The present work has been done during the preparatory events of the National Conference on Energy and Environment (CNEA), studying the diffusive properties of the lower layers of the atmosphere, in order to find out a set of air quality indicators for urban areas. The data of 180 meteorological stations of the Italian Air Force Meteorological Service cover the whole Italian territory and are easily available; for this reason, this study, is based on those data. By analysing the available data, the variability range of the considered parameters was investigated and then an attempt was done to combine those parameters in order to describe, with a general index related to each site, the higher or lower attitude to diffuse pollutants released in the atmosphere. After that, the sites have been classified by their capacity of dispersion in atmosphere, making use of the meteo-diffusivity index described above, and pointing out the importance of meteorology in the study of the air quality of urban sites.

    This study was undertaken to evaluate the efficacy of postoperative radiotherapy, and to investigate the prognostic factors for FIGO stages IB-IIB cervical cancer patients who were treated with simple hysterectomy, or who had high-risk factors following radical hysterectomy and pelvic lymph node dissection. Between March 1986 and December 1998, 58 patients, with FIGO stages IB-IIB cervical cancer were included in this study, The indications for postoperative radiation therapy were based on the pathological findings, including lymph node metastasis, positive surgical margin, parametrial extension, Iymphovascular invasion, invasion of more than half the cervical stroma, uterine extension and the incidental finding of cervix cancer following simple hysterectomy. All patients received external pelvic radiotherapy, and 5 patients, received an additional intracavitary radiation therapy. The radiation dose from the external beam to the whole pelvis was 45 - 50 Gy. Vagina cuff irradiation was performed, after completion of the external beam irradiation, al a low-dose rate of CS-137, with the total dose of 4488-4932 chy (median: 4500 chy) at 5 mm depth from the vagina surface. The median follow-up period was 44 months (15-108 months), The 5-yr actuarial local control rate, distant free survival and disease-free survival rate were 98%, 95% and 94%, respectively. A univariate analysis of the clinical and pathological parameters revealed that the clinical stage (p=0.0145), status of vaginal resection margin (p=0.0002) and parametrial extension (p=0.0001) affected the disease-free survival. From a multivariate analysis, only a parametrial extension independently influenced the disease-free survival. Five patients (9%) experienced Grade 2 late treatment-related complications, such as radiation proctitis (1 patient), cystitis (3 patients) and lymphedema of the leg (1 patient). No patient had grade 3 or 4 complications. Our results indicate that postoperative radiation therapy can

    Full Text Available Background: Pelvic lymph node metastasis (LNM is an important prognostic factor in cervical cancer. Cervical squamous cell carcinoma accounts for approximately 75-80% of all cervical cancers. Analyses of the effects of the number of positive lymph nodes (LNs, unilateral versus bilateral pelvic LNM and a single group versus multiple groups of pelvic LNM on survival and recurrence of cervical squamous cell carcinoma are still lacking. The study aimed to analyze the effects of the number of positive pelvic LNs and a single group versus multiple groups of pelvic LNM on survival and recurrence. Methods: We performed a retrospective review of 296 patients diagnosed with Stage IA-IIB cervical squamous cell carcinoma who received extensive/sub-extensive hysterectomy with pelvic lymphadenectomy/pelvic LN sampling at Peking University People′s Hospital from November 2004 to July 2013. Ten clinicopathological variables were evaluated as risk factors for pelvic LNM: Age at diagnosis, gravidity, clinical stage, histological grade, tumor diameter, lymph-vascular space involvement (LVSI, depth of cervical stromal invasion, uterine invasion, parametrial invasion, and neoadjuvant chemotherapy. Results: The incidence of pelvic LNM was 20.27% (60/296 cases. Pelvic LNM (P = 0.00 was significantly correlated with recurrence. Pelvic LNM (P = 0.00, the number of positive pelvic LNs (P = 0.04 and a single group versus multiple groups of pelvic LNM (P = 0.03 had a significant influence on survival. Multivariate analysis revealed that LVSI (P = 0.00, depth of cervical stromal invasion (P = 0.00 and parametrial invasion (P = 0.03 were independently associated with pelvic LNM. Conclusions: Patients with pelvic LNM had a higher recurrence rate and poor survival outcomes. Furthermore, more than 2 positive pelvic LNs and multiple groups of pelvic LNM appeared to identify patients with worse survival outcomes in node-positive IA-IIB cervical squamous cell carcinoma.

    Women with invasive carcinoma of the cervix treated by chemo-radiotherapy and brachytherapy may also receive a pelvic sidewall boost using a midline shield (MLS). The purpose of this study was to assess the usefulness of implanted gold grains in detecting the movement of the cervix caused by the insertion of low-dose-rate brachytherapy applicators, and its implications in designing the MLS. The medical records of 42 women with various stages of cervical carcinoma, who were treated by radical chemo-radiotherapy, were reviewed. All of these women underwent examination under anaesthesia (EUA) and a gold-grain insertion to demarcate the vaginal tumour extent, in the antero-posterior and lateral planes, before starting external-beam radiotherapy. The isocentric orthogonal films (simulator films) of external radiotherapy and brachytherapy were compared to assess the change in position of the gold grains and the consequences for the design of the MLS for parametrial and pelvic sidewall boosts. A significant shift in the position of the gold grains was noted in both the x (lateral) and the y (cranial/caudal) axes. The median shift of the midline, right and left lateral gold grains was 4.5, 5 and 7 mm in the x axis, whereas it was 10, 8 and 9.5 mm in the y axis, respectively. The median shift in the x and y axes was 5.5 and 9 mm, ranging from 1 to 40 mm and 1 to 45 mm, respectively. The gold grains were shifted cranially in 34 (80%) and laterally in 29 (69%) women. Thirty-two women (76.2%) received parametrial boost radiotherapy, of which 25 (59.5%) women had a customised, pear-shaped shield, and the remaining seven (16.7%) had a straight-sided, rectangular MLS. Four women (9.5%) relapsed locally, and three of them had been treated using a customised shield. In two of these four women, there was an absolute under-dosage of the central pelvis at the tip of the intra-uterine tube by 50% of the parametrial boost dose (5.4 Gy/3 fractions/3 days).

    The aim was to determine the long-term prognosis in patients with stage IIIb-IVa squamous cell carcinoma of the cervix who were treated with intra-arterial neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NAC), and to analyze factors related to prognostic value. The authors assessed the disease-free survival of 21 patients with FIGO stage IIIb-IVa squamous cell carcinoma of the cervix treated with intra-arterial NAC followed by irradiation therapy. Before chemotherapy, five factors (age, clinical stage, histologic type, parametrial involvement and serum level of SCC) were evaluated for their correlation with disease-free survival. Univariate Cox's proportional hazard model also demonstrated that age was a significant prognostic factor as a continuous variable. Intra-arterial NAC thus appeared to be effective in treating older patients with stage IIIb-IVa squamous cell carcinoma of the cervix

    We compared the prognostic ability of the maximum standardized uptake value (SUVmax) and various biological marker expressions to predict recurrence in patients with surgically resected cervical cancer. A retrospective review identified 60 patients with cervical cancer who received [18F]fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography/computed tomography (F-18 FDG PET/CT) at the time of the diagnosis of cancer. The SUVmax, expressions of carbonic anhydrase-IX (CA-IX), glucose transporter 1 (GLUT-1), and vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), and known prognostic factors were investigated. The median follow-up time was 22.2 months (range 3.4-43.1 months).

    1990-01-01

    Recently, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and transrectal or transvaginal ultrasound (TRUS, TVUS) had an important place in imaging techniques of cervical carcinomas and raise the question of modifying the imaging strategies. For the diagnosis of primitive tumor, those techniques cannot take the place of clinical examination and gross examination. In the assessment of parametrial involvement, TRUS which has better accuracy than clinical examination, and MRI which is considered as the most accurate technique, have an important role to play. In the follow-up and the detection of recurrences, MRI is actually considered as the best imaging technique. The authors, according to recent data in literature and their own experience, present basic concepts of imaging strategies for staging and follow-up of cervical carcinomas [fr

    Among the traditional indictors of faecal water pollution, Escherichia coli has shown to fit better with the definition of indicator organism. Till now its recovery has been time-consuming and needs confirmation tests. In this report more rapid and direct methods, based on enzymatic reactions, are presented. [Italian] Per talune peculiari caratteristiche, Escherichia coli sembra meglio soddisfare i requisiti insiti nella definizione di organismo indicatore, rispetto ai tradizionali indicatori di contaminazione fecale dell'acqua. Finora, i substrati disponibili per il suo rilevamento necessitano tutti di almeno una prova di conferma. Di qui l'esigenza di indicare metodi di rilevamento a riposta piu' rapida, anche in relazione all'inserimento, nelle piu' recenti normative nazionali ed europee, del microrganismo tra i parametri microbiologici da ricercare.

    Cancer of the cervix uteri (CCU) ranks third in the incidence of malignancies in women. The choice of CCU treatment mainly depends on the extent of the tumor process, i.e., the stage of the disease. Determining the stage of CCU is based on the clinical classification of the International Federation of Gynecology and Obstetrics (FIGO) (2009) and has a number of substantial limitations in evaluating parametrial invasion, tumor spread to the pelvic wall, and involvement of regional lymph nodes and in determining the true tumor sizes. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is now the method of choice in staging invasive CCU. Multiparameter MRI will be able to enhance the efficiency of diagnosing microinvasive CCU as well (FIGO 2009), to plan surgical and/or chemoradiation treatment, to evaluate its efficiency, and to diagnose locally recurrent CCU.

    Malignant mixed mullerian tumors (MMMTs) are a rare uterine tumor and contribute to approximately 1-3% of all corpus malignant tumors. MMMTs are usually in the uterine corpus, but can also arise from the uterine cervix, vagina, ovaries and fallofian tubes. MMMTs of the uterine cervix are extremely rare. MMMTs are highly malignant and tend to maintain a rapid growth and exhibit a high rate of recurrence. Therefore, the prognosis of patients diagnosed with these types of tumors is extremely poor. We report a rare case of a malignant mixed mullerian tumor arising from the uterine cervix and introduce CT and MRI findings. CT and magnetic resonance findings of the uterine cervical MMMT in our case show highly aggressive features, such as parametrial involvement, pelvic and paraaortic lymphadenopathy, and distant metastasis and high enhancement

    Purpose : Patients with cervical cancer who have positive resection margins after radical hysterectomy are at increased risk for local recurrence. The results of postoperative pelvic radiotherapy for cervix cancer with positive resection margins were analyzed to evaluated the role of radiotherapy. Materials and Methods : Between 1979 and 1992, 60 patients of cervix carcinoma were treated with postoperative radiotherapy after radical hysterectomy because of positive vaginal(48 patients) or parametrial resection margins(12 patients). Patients were treated with external beam radiation therapy(EBRT) alone (12 patients) or EBRT plus vaginal ovoid irradiation (VOI) (48 patients). The median follow-up period was 5 months. Results : The 5-year actuarial disease free and overall survival rates for all patients were 75.2%, 84.1%, respectively. The overall recurrence rate was 23%(14/60). In 48 patients with positive vaginal resection margins, the pelvic recurrence was 8%(4/48). Distant metastasis was 15%(7/48). Of the 43 patients with positive vaginal resection margins treated with EBRT and VOI, recurrence rate was 21%(9/43), while recurrence rate was 40%(2/5) in the EBRT only treated group. In 12 patients with positive parametrial margins, three patients (25%) had distant metastases. The most significant prognostic factor was lymph node metastasis. Complications resulting from radiotherapy occurred at a rate of 32%(19/60) and grade III complications occurred in three patients (5%). Conclusion : Postoperative radiotherapy can produce excellent pelvic control rates in patients with positive resection margins. In patients with positive vaginal margins, whole pelvic EBRT and BOI is recommended

    The Law Decree 22/97 about waste tends to favour recycling activities for energy and materials. One of these are composting processes. The product obtained by this technology, put on the market, must have the necessary hygienic qualifications. To give data regarding this matter it was evaluated, in the period 1998-2000, the microbiologic quality of a natural organic ammendant obtained by composting searching following parameters: heterotrophic microorganisms, faecal indicators, Escherichia coli, salmonellae, shigellae, Listeria monocytogenes, pseudomonas aeruginosa, staphylococci, coagulase-positive, enterovirus, protozoa cysts and helminth eggs. Same of these were also searched in the biological sludge and sludge - plant residues mix microbiological parameters. [Italian] Il Decreto Legge 22/97 in materia di rifiuti tende a favorire tutte quelle attivita' di recupero di energia e di materia. Una di queste e' rappresentata dai processi di compostaggio.

    Full Text Available RIASSUNTO. - Questa nota descrive un nuovo metodo per calcolare le registrazioni
    accelerografìehe per una data regione sismica in base alle leggi fisiche
    usando le informazioni relative alla tettonica ed alle proprietà fisiche della faglia
    sismica.
    Il metodo si basa su di un nuovo modello sismico, chiamato « modello
    b a r r i e r a » , caratterizzato da cinque parametri focali: lunghezza della faglia,
    larghezza, scorrimento massimo, velocità di rottura ed intervallo di barriera.
    I primi tre parametri possono essere vincolati dalla tettonica a placche, il
    quarto parametro è approssimativamente una costante. Il parametro più importante,
    che controlla l'accelerazione del terremoto, è l'ultimo, l'intervallo « barriera ».
    Vi sono tre metodi per valutare 1' « intervallo barriera » per una data
    regione sismica: 1 misurazione in superficie dello scorrimento attraverso fratture
    di faglia; 2 creazione di un modello che si adatti all'osservazione di
    campi vicini e lontani; 5 una legge che regoli i dati per i piccoli terremoti nella
    regione.
    Gli intervalli barriera sono stati valutati per una dozzina di terremoti e
    per quattro regioni sismiche, per mezzo dei tre metodi suindicati. I risultati
    preliminari ottenuti per la California suggeriscono che l'intervallo barriera
    possa essere determinato quando sia dato il massimo scorrimento. La relazione
    tra l'intervallo barriera ed il massimo scorrimento varia da una regione sismica
    all'altra. Ad esempio, l'intervallo appare insolitamente lungo per Kilanea (Hawaii,
    il che può spiegare perché traccia di forte scorrimento del terreno sia stata
    osservata soltanto nell'area epicentrale del terremoto delle Isole Hawaii del 29
    novembre 1975.

    Purpose: To compare results and complications of our previous low-dose-rate (LDR) brachytherapy schedule for early-stage cancer of the cervix, with a prospectively designed medium-dose-rate (MDR) schedule, based on the linear-quadratic model (LQ). Methods and Materials: A combination of brachytherapy, external beam pelvic and parametrial irradiation was used in 102 consecutive Stage Ib-IIb LDR treated patients (1986-1990) and 42 equally staged MDR treated patients (1994-1996). The planned MDR schedule consisted of three insertions on three treatment days with six 8-Gy brachytherapy fractions to Point A, two on each treatment day with an interfraction interval of 6 hours, plus 18 Gy external whole pelvic dose, and followed by additional parametrial irradiation. The calculated biologically effective dose (BED) for tumor was 90 Gy 10 and for rectum below 125 Gy 3 . Results: In practice the MDR brachytherapy schedule achieved a tumor BED of 86 Gy 10 and a rectal BED of 101 Gy 3 . The latter was better than originally planned due to a reduction from 85% to 77% in the percentage of the mean dose to the rectum in relation to Point A. The mean overall treatment time was 10 days shorter for MDR in comparison with LDR. The 3-year actuarial central control for LDR and MDR was 97% and 98% (p = NS), respectively. The Grades 2 and 3 late complications (scale 0 to 3) were 1% and 2.4%, respectively for LDR (3-year) and MDR (2-year). Conclusions: LQ is a reliable tool for designing new schedules with altered fractionation and dose rates. The MDR schedule has proven to be an equivalent treatment schedule compared with LDR, with an additional advantage of having a shorter overall treatment time. The mean rectal BED Gy 3 was lower than expected

    Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) was performed in 62 patients with uterine cervical cancer and the preoperative MRI findings were compared with the pathological findings following surgery. The surgical stages of 62 patients were 2 at stage 0, 18 at stage Ia, 19 at stage Ib, 9 at stage IIa, 11 at stage IIb, 2 at stage IIIa, and 1 at stage IIIb. The MRI findings in the present study included: (1) the existence of a high intensity area (HIA) in the uterine cervix or minimum thickness of residual normal cervical tissue, (2) necrotic cavity, (3) pyometra, (4) irregular margin of the cervix, (5) parametrial invasion, (6) vaginal invasion, (7) bladder invasion, and (8) lymph node enlargement. No HIA was observed in any patient with stage 0 or stage Ia, in 8 patients with stage Ib, and in 2 patients with stage IIa, while all patients with cancer tissues greater than 10 mm in diameter had a HIA. In 39 patients in whom hysterectomy was undergone without conization, the findings of MRI correlated significantly (r=0.929, p<0.001) with the minimum thickness of residual normal cervical tissue by the pathological measurement. When the irregular margin of the cervix was regarded as a disruption of the cervical myo-metrium by cancer tissue, accuracy was 87%. Furthermore, the degrees of accuracy for parametrial invasion, vaginal invasion and bladder invasion were 92%, 90% and 94%, respectively. When lymphnodes greater than 15 mm in diameter were regarded as a positive in MRI, accuracy was 88%. The present results indicate that MRI is clinically effective in preoperatively evaluating the extension of uterine cervical cancer. (author)

    progettuale e realizzativa dei parametri e de lle prestazioni strumentali; in generale infatti non solo sarà necessario mantenere le dimensioni, il peso, i consumi elettrici ed il data-volume entro i requisiti disponibili del satellite ma anche ottimizzare i disegni ottici, meccanici ed elettronici al fine di ottenere le massime prestazioni possibili in funzione della natura del target osservato e dei parametri orbitali della missione. Questa tesi descrive i metodi utilizzati per caratterizzare il funzionamento di spettrometri ad immagine per l’esplorazione planetaria. L’attività svolta ha riguardato sia la misura in laboratorio dei parametri strumentali fondamentali sia l’analisi dei dati in volo su cui verificarne ed eventualmente correggerne la risposta. Il funzionamento degli strumenti e la metodologia di calibrazione vengono descritti nelle due parti principali e nelle appendici di questa tesi per gli esperimenti Cassini-VIMS-V e Rosetta-VIRTIS-M. La prima parte è dedicata all’esperimento VIMS-V sul satellite Cassini, il cui disegno ottico, originariamente proposto da Francis Reininger, verrà successivamente riutilizzato e perfezionato su VIRTIS-M (Reininger et al., 1994; Miller et al., 1996). Il capitolo 1 contiene una descrizione dei parametri ottici, strutturali, termici ed elettronici di VIMS-V mettendone in risalto gli aspetti più innovativi del progetto. Vengono inoltre descritti la collocazione dell’esperimento sul satellite Cassini, il coallineamento con gli altri strumenti di remote sensing, i possibili modi operativi ed il formato dei dati scientifici. Il capitolo 2 riguarda il processo di calibrazione ed analisi dei dati in volo di VIMS-V. La procedura eseguita per calibrare radiometricamente lo strumento utilizzando i dati della superficie della Luna e per stimare il flat-field mediante i dati dell’atmosfera di Venere viene dettagliatamente descritta assieme agli algoritmi utilizzati per la rimozione di diversi effetti strumentali (read

    Full Text Available Sokolov’s Shkola dlya Durakov (A School for Fools, 1976 is an extremely complex novel, which “depicts [the] world”, as D. Barton Johnson (1986:640[1] poignantly observes, “through the eyes, and pure, if eccentric, language, of a schizophrenic youth”. How is it possible to translate such linguistic features and the effects they create into another medium? This question lies at the core of my proposal, which aims to approach the problem of intermedial translation from prose to theatre through the presentation of an individual case-study. In fact, A School for Fools has been staged by the director Andrey Moguchy (Formalny Theatre, Saint Petersburg, Russia. With the intention of reproducing Sokolov’s aesthetic construction of illusion, Moguchy introduces a new genre in the theatrical context, the so-called “vizualnaya associaciya” (“visual association”. As the director explained in a recent interview, this original genre recalls the Impressionists’ position in observing and representing nature, in order to obtain the same effectgenerated by the reading of the novel. To comprehend this process better, special attention is devoted to the construction of unusual, hybrid characters, highlighting their constitutive features both in the novel and in the theatrical adaptation. Moreover, this research seeks to enrich discussion of the work of Sokolov and Moguchy. [1] Johnson, D. Barton (1986 “Sasha Sokolov's Twilight Cosmos: Themes and Motifs”, in: Slavic Review, 45, 4 (Winter 1986, pp. 639-649.

    combinacion de procedimientos de precipitacion y de extraccion con disolventes, se han podido recuperar cantidades de tecnecio-99 del orden de algunos gramos, a partir de desechos de productos de fision. La pureza quimica del tecnecio obtenido es superior al 99,9%, en tanto que su pureza radioquimica sobrepasa el 99.99%. Trabajando tambien con vestigios, se ha demostrado la posibilidad de separar y purificar por extraccion continua pequenas cantidades de estroncio contenidas en otros materiales. Se obtuvo estroncio de 98% de pureza a partir de un material contaminado por un 95% de calcio inerte. El estroncio se transforma en titanato de estroncio, con el que se elaboran elementos ceramicos.
