PURPOSE To evaluate noncontrast material-enhanced steady-state free precession (SSFP) magnetic resonance (MR) angiography in the assessment of transplant renal arteries (RAs) by using digital subtraction angiography (DSA) as the reference standard. MATERIALS AND METHODS This prospective study was approved by the institutional review board; written(More)
New data about (129)I, (127)I concentrations and their isotopic ratios in aerosol samples from the trace survey station of the Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt (PTB) in Braunschweig, Northern Germany, are presented and discussed in this paper. The investigated samples were collected on a weekly basis during the years 2011 to 2013. Iodine was extracted(More)
In this study, new data are presented for the iodine isotopes (127I, 129I and their isotopic ratios) and Cesium (137Cs) in water samples of the North Sea and the Baltic Sea in 2005 and 2009. This study supplements and extends the study of Michel et al. (2012). Iodine isotopes were separated from their matrix by using an anion exchange method and were(More)
We present a technique for measuring colloid size distributions between 15 nm and 2 microm at concentrations relevant to natural surface waters. Two particle-measuring methods are combined: laser-induced breakdown detection (LIBD), which allows the quantification of colloid size distributions below 400 nm, and a commercial single-particle counter that(More)
As a nonrenewable resource, phosphorus (P) is the second most important macronutrient for plant growth and nutrition. Demand of phosphorus application in the agricultural production is increasing fast throughout the globe. The bioavailability of phosphorus is distinctively low due to its slow diffusion and high fixation in soils which make phosphorus a key(More)
The adsorption of Cm(III) on quartz is studied by time resolved laser fluorescence spectroscopy (TRLFS) in the pH range from 3.75 to 9.45. The raw spectra are deconvoluted into three single components. The first one has a peak maximum at 593.8 nm and can be attributed to the Cm(III) aquo ion with an emission lifetime of 68+/-3 micros. The second one(More)
" … The number of universities teaching nuclear and radiochemistry has decreased, not least as radiochemistry is erroneously linked to the use of nuclear power … Radiochemistry is essential for a variety of fields, including radiopharmaceuticals, as well as the management of radioactive waste … we are facing a lack of specialists in the area of radiation(More)
Size dispersion effects during the migration of natural submicron bentonite colloids (<200 nm) through a ceramic column are observed for the first time by laser-induced breakdown detection (LIBD) at ppm (parts per million) mass concentration. Larger size fractions ( approximately 200 nm) arrive prior to smaller size fractions (<100 nm) at the column outlet(More)
Polymerization in hexavalent uranium solutions was measured by electrospray ionization time-of-flight mass spectrometry in three different acidic media at pH values from 3 to 5.3 in order to detect all hydrolysis species present in solution. The aqueous solutions were directly measured without further dilution in organic solvents. At high uranyl(More)
