Computed tomography--an increasing source of radiation exposure.
The number of computed tomographic (CT) studies performed is increasing rapidly. Because CT scans involve much higher doses of radiation than plain films, we are seeing a marked increase in radiationExpand

Estimated risks of radiation-induced fatal cancer from pediatric CT.
OBJECTIVE In light of the rapidly increasing frequency of pediatric CT examinations, the purpose of our study was to assess the lifetime cancer mortality risks attributable to radiation fromExpand

Cancer risks attributable to low doses of ionizing radiation: Assessing what we really know
High doses of ionizing radiation clearly produce deleterious consequences in humans, including, but not exclusively, cancer induction. At very low radiation doses the situation is much less clear,Expand

Cancer risks from diagnostic radiology.
In recent years, there has been a rapid increase in the number of CT scans performed, both in the US and the UK, which has fuelled concern about the long-term consequences of these exposures,Expand

Second malignancies in prostate carcinoma patients after radiotherapy compared with surgery
In the treatment of prostate carcinoma, radiotherapy and surgery are common choices of comparable efficacy; thus a realistic comparison of the potential long term sequelae, such as the risk of secondExpand

Estimated radiation risks potentially associated with full-body CT screening.
PURPOSE To estimate the radiation-related cancer mortality risks associated with single or repeated full-body computed tomographic (CT) examinations by using standard radiation risk estimationExpand

Conditions for the equivalence of continuous to pulsed low dose rate brachytherapy.
Low dose rate interstitial brachytherapy is extremely useful for those tumors that are accessible for an implant, while the introduction of remote afterloaders has eliminated exposure to nursingExpand

  • 1 October 2008
The tool most commonly used for quantitative predictions of dose/fractionation dependencies in radiotherapy is the mechanistically based linear-quadratic (LQ) model. The LQ formalism is now almostExpand
