BACKGROUND/AIM Cataract is a structural, biochemical and optical change in the eye lens, which changes transmission and refraction of light rays reducing keenness and clarity of a figure on the retina. Its occurrence is highest in older people, over the age of 65 (45.9%), thus a certain degree of opacification exists practically in all people over the 70.(More)
PURPOSE A new 3D gel dosimeter (ClearView™, Modus Medical Systems) was investigated for use as a QA tool for stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) plans exhibiting high dose gradients and spatially separated treatment targets. The unique feature of this gel dosimeter is the remote processing service provided by Modus Medical Systems. METHODS The gel dosimeters(More)
The lightest isotope of Bh was produced in the new 209Bi(52Cr,n)260Bh reaction at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory's 88-Inch Cyclotron. Positive identification was made by observation of eight correlated alpha particle decay chains in the focal plane detector of the Berkeley Gas-Filled Separator. 260Bh decays with a 35(-9)(+19) ms half-life by(More)
Independent verification of the production of element 114 in the reaction of 244-MeV ;{48}Ca with ;{242}Pu is presented. Two chains of time- and position-correlated decays have been assigned to ;{286}114 and ;{287}114. The observed decay modes, half-lives, and decay energies agree with published results. The measured cross sections at a center-of-target(More)

INTRODUCTION Reduced compound glutathione (GSH) in the lens has the function to protect the thiol group of lens proteins, and as a substrate of glutathione peroxidase (GPx) and glutathione S-transferase (GST). Protein containing thiol groups is significant for the normal function of lens epithelium, i.e. enzymes Na-K-ATP-ase, thus influencing cell(More)
The new, neutron-deficient, superheavy element isotope ²⁸⁵114 was produced in ⁴⁸Ca irradiations of ²⁴²Pu targets at a center-of-target beam energy of 256 MeV (E*=50  MeV). The α decay of ²⁸⁵114was followed by the sequential α decay of four daughter nuclides, 281Cn, 277Ds, 273Hs, and 269Sg. 265Rf was observed to decay by spontaneous fission. The measured(More)
Two isomeric states have been identified in 255 Lr. The decay of the isomers populates rotational structures. Comparison with macroscopic-microscopic calculations suggests that the lowest observed sequence is built upon the [624]9/2 + Nilsson state. However, microscopic cranked relativistic Hartree-Bogoliubov (CRHB) calculations do not reproduce the moment(More)
