Blood-brain barrier inhibits most of drugs and genetic materials from reaching the brain. So, developing high efficiency carriers for gene and drug delivery to the brain, is the challenging area in pharmaceutical sciences. This investigation aimed to target DNA to brain using Serine-Arginine-Leucine (SRL) functionalized PAMAM dendrimers as a novel gene(More)
The response of PADC was calculated by Monte Carlo simulation using MCNPX code. H, C and O recoils as well as nuclear reactions have been taken into account. The calculated results show important contribution to detection efficiency of PADC due to H, C and O recoils. The irradiated detectors with (241)Am-Be source and (241)Am-Be softened with a spherical(More)

Fast neutrons interact with the(More)
External dose rate (ED) and residual activity (RA) of patients treated with (131)I sodium iodide are two main factors, to consider before release of patients. In this study, six nuclear medicine centres out of total seven centres in Iran were selected and measurements have been done on 330 patients. ED of patients was measured by physicists of the centres(More)
Neutron energy spectrum unfolding has been the subject of research for several years. The Bayesian theory, Monte Carlo simulation, and iterative methods are some of the methods that have been used for neutron spectrum unfolding. In this study, the radial basis function (RBF), multilayer perceptron, and artificial neural networks (ANNs) were used for the(More)
In recent years, with the introduction of 64-slice CT and dual-source CT technology, coronary CT angiography (CCTA) has emerged as a useful diagnostic imaging modality as a non-invasive assessment of coronary heart disease. CT produces a larger radiation dose than other imaging tests and cardiac CT involves higher radiation dose with the advances in the(More)
BACKGROUND Ramsar, a city of Iran located on the coast of the Caspian Sea, has been considered to be enormously important due to its high natural radioactivity levels. People living in High Level Natural Radiation Areas (HLNRAs) have been exposed by several sources, one of which could be foodstuff. However, many studies have been carried out to measure the(More)
In order to establish diagnostic reference levels (DRLs) for multi-detector computed tomography (MDCT), four routine CT examinations were identified and a computer program was developed to collect data from 19 MDCT scanners in Iran. Mean values of Volume computed tomography dose index (CTDIvol) and dose-length product (DLP) in each site were calculated and(More)
PURPOSE OF THE STUDY This study conducted a review on nuclear medicine (NM) services in Mazandaran Province with a view to establish adult diagnostic reference levels (DRLs) and provide updated data on population radiation exposure resulting from diagnostic NM procedures. MATERIALS AND METHODS The data were collected from all centers in all cities of(More)
