Research Paper (undergraduate) from the year 2011 in the subject Medicine - Radiology, Nuclear Medicine, grade: 4.7, University of Michigan, language: English, abstract: Radiation, the emission of rays of high frequency and wavelengths, has been in use for more than 100 years. It has been used in the field of medicine since the early 1900s when scientists like Marie Curie, who was awarded the Nobel Prize in Science for her cutting edge work in the field of radioactivity, discovered elements with radioactive properties such as radium and polonium. Since then, several new innovations have been made in the use of radiation in medicine. Radiation is majorly used in the treatment of cancers and malignant cells. And simply, radiotherapy can be defined as the use of ionizing radiation in the control and eradication of malignant cancer cells. It is to be differentiated from radiology which refers to the application of ionizing radiation in the diagnosis of diseases. Radiology makes use of radiation in the imaging of the human body.There are two types of radiation, ionizing and non-ionizing radiation. Ionizing radiation has more applications in the field of radiotherapy than non-ionizing radiation. There are machines that can carefully measure doses of ionizing radiation and then direct the beams at the area of the body in which the cancerous cells are situated. These machines focus the high energy beams on the cells so as to either incapacitate them or totally destroy them. In most cases, these high energy beams damages certain parts of the cells, especially the DNA in the nucleus, thereby making these cells unable to divide and replicate. Unlike normal cells which can recover and repair themselves when damaged by radiation, cancerous cells cannot. And so they die.
Her er mit første bog, min "brystbiografi", HELT ÆRLIGT fortalt om mit liv, min historie og min sandhed i den periode, hvor jeg fik fjernet et bryst og gennem den efterfølgende behandling (2019-2021). Dette er min livsrejse gennem et kemoforløb på godt og ondt - mest skrevet i dagbogsform. Det er en rejse med op- og nedture, magtesløshed, udmattelse, afsavn, men også med håb for fremtiden.Jeg har mødt mange skønne mennesker gennem mit forløb. Det er jeg dybt taknemmelig for. Mange tak til alle som har hjulpet mig og kontaktet mig. Den største tak skal gå til min kære mand, som har mødt mig hver dag, kørt med mig og ikke mindst lyttet til mig, uanset hvad jeg havde på sinde.Her har du MIN beretning, om det forløb jeg har været igennem med diagnose, undersøgelser, operation, kemokur og stråler. Du vil høre om tanker, smerter, bivirkninger, sexliv, praktiske foranstaltning omkring brystprotese og paryk og mødet med sundhedsvæsenet på godt og ondt i en Coronatid. Der er tårer, men også komiske hændelser undervejs. Jeg håber, at andre brystpatienter kan få gavn af at læse beretningen. Deres pårørende kan måske også have behov for at vide, hvordan deres kære evt. går og har det, og hvad der eventuelt kunne være ekstra opmærksomhed omkring."Det er en super god bog, Birgitte. Jeg er ikke færdig med at læse den igennem, og alligevel vil jeg så gerne læse dine andre bøger, du har i tankerne. Dine ord har fanget mig, som de har fanget din mand, da han læste bogen. Du skriver så ærligt og så godt. Bliv endelig ved med det!"Henriette
Since the last edition of this textbook, interventional radiation therapy (brachytherapy) has undergone significant developments. The incorporation of advanced image-guiding procedures and the establishment of new applicators allow for the highly accurate implantation of complex implants. 3D-guided real-time adaptive brachytherapy is becoming the newest clinical standard. We now find ourselves in an exciting "new era" of brachytherapy.The current edition of this textbook has been updated to include all these new developments in brachytherapy, including the results of recent clinical trials and updates to the brachytherapy guidelines by the European Brachytherapy Group within ESTRO (GEC-ESTRO).A number of highly experienced authors and skilled colleagues from all over Europe have contributed to this edition to educate and inspire all members of the radiation oncology team to utilise the full potential of brachytherapy to the benefit of their patients.

Sabatino, presents 100 high-yield GI cases. The cases are organized in six sections: the liver, biliary system, pancreas, spleen, GI tract, and peritoneum that cover the most common pathologies, as well as more esoteric ones.Key HighlightsReflects first-hand experience from the primary author who has provided board review in gastrointestinal imaging to hundreds of residents throughout the countryCovers all body imaging modalities including CT, MRI, radiographs, fluoroscopy, and ultrasoundEach case is supplemented by multiple choice questions color-coded by easy, medium, and hard that challenge readers to assess different levels of knowledge and think beyond the diagnosisDetailed explanations of correct and incorrect answers enhance learningThis high-yield study guide will provide radiology residents with a better understanding of gastrointestinal imaging and the knowledge to face the core exam with less trepidation.This print book includes complimentary access to a digital copy on https://medone.thieme.com.
Clinical Oncology is a guide for oncology residents. An oncologist's work starts from the point of diagnosis to achieving a cure or palliation by using the available resources most meaningfully. Oncology examinations aim at finding how much a trainee is fluent in such work before gifting him/her to the society. This needs the idea of pathology, basics of hematology, radiology, and genetics. All these important topics are addressed in the form of 12 short chapters. Case discussions are made interesting by sharing important and relevant points in eight long cases in question and answer format, including history, differential diagnosis, initial investigations, and their logical utilization in approaching a diagnosis. We hope this book is equally helpful for those preparing for oncology entrance examinations and first-year residents as well as final-year students who are going to give practical examinations and ESMO examination.Key FeaturesA clinically focused book packed with all the essential information to help in timely diagnosis and management of patientsExplains the important concepts for quick revision for the viva dayA useful compendium for ESMO exam, which is globally undertaken by oncology residents and young oncologistsDr Venkata Pradeep Babu Koyyala, MD, DNB, ECMO is Assistant Professor, Department of Medical Oncology, Homi Bhabha Cancer Hospital and Research Centre, Visakhapatnam, Andhra Pradesh, and ESMO Fellow, Princess Margaret Cancer Hospital, Toronto, Canada.Dr Sajjan Rajpurohit, MD, DNB, ECMO is Principal Consultant, Department of Medical Oncology, Max Institute of Cancer Care, Delhi NCR.
