  1. 1. Mixed Beam Dosimetry - From Reactor Core to BNCT Patient

    University dissertation from Per Munck af Rosenschöld, Dept. of Radiation Physics, Klinikg. 7, 22185 LUND, SWEDEN

    Author : Per Munck af Rosenschöld; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2003]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; BNCT; dosimetry; radiotherapy; mixed beam; quality assurance; in vivo dosimetry; Monte Carlo; ionization chamber; foil activation; MCNP; beam quality correction factor; photon transmission.; Nukleärmedicin; radiobiology; Nuclear medicine; radiobiologi; Radiofarmaceutisk teknik; Radiopharmaceutical technology;

    Abstract : Accurate radiation dosimetry is of paramount importance in order to ensure safe delivery of radiotherapy, and for the possibility of meaningful evaluation of clinical trials, as the radiation absorbed dose is correlated to tissue response. The aim of the studies described in this thesis was to investigate and devise novel approaches to mixed beam dosimetry in boron neutron capture therapy (BNCT). READ MORE

    Abstract : Popular Abstract in Swedish Strålbehandling är en av de vanligaste behandlingarna mot cancer. Hälften av alla behandlingar syftar till att bota patienten från sjukdomen, men strålbehandling är även en mycket effektiv behandling för att lindra smärta och andra symptom för patienter med en obotlig cancer.

  3. 3. Pharmacokinetics and dosimetry in intraperitoneal radioimmunotherapy with 211At

    University dissertation from Göteborg : University of Gothenburg

    Author : Elin Cederkrantz; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2014]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; astatine-211; radioimmunotherapy; alpha-emitter; ovarian cancer; MX35; pharmacokinetics; dosimetry; effective dose;

    Abstract : The prognosis for patients diagnosed with disseminated cancer is often poor. Radioimmunotherapy (RIT) is a new approach to treat disseminated disease. The aim is to target tumor cells with monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) labeled with radionuclides which release cytotoxic particle radiation upon decay. The radionuclide 211At, with half-life 7.

    Abstract : Popular Abstract in Swedish Utvärdering av stråldos och bildkvalitet i mammografi Bröstcancer är den cancerform som är vanligast hos kvinnor. Genom tidig upptäckt med bröströntgen, mammografi, kan man behandla sjukdomen i ett tidigare stadium och därmed minska dödligheten. READ MORE

  5. 5. In vivo dosimetry of aldehydes and studies on the origin of malonaldehyde

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Stockholm University

    Author : Antti Kautiainen; Stockholms universitet.; [1992]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Aldehydes are electrophilic reagents that bind to nucleophilic sites in macromolecules andmany of them have been shown to possess cytotoxic and genotoxic properties.The aim of this study was to develop an analytical method for the measurement of reactionproducts (adducts) of aldehydes with hemoglobin (Hb) and to apply this method for in vivodosimetry of endogenously formed aldehydes, particularly malonaldehyde (MA).
