    Dunstana Melo President Dr. Melo has more than 30 years of experience in the fields of radiation protection, dosimetry, biokinetics, and biological effects of internally deposited radionuclides. She has been integral in developing methods for removing radionuclides from the body (decorporation) as well as studying the mechanisms of deposition, clearance and retention of radioactive materials.

Health Effects of Internally Deposited Radionuclides Emphasis on Radium and Thorium - Proceedings of an International Seminar. More emphasis will be given to creating a bridge between epidemiology, molecular biology, cancer genetics and low-dose effects.

This seminar provides new perspectives for future research in the health effects of internally deposited radionuclides and opens doors for closer international cooperation. Lifetime radiation effects in beagles injected with Ra as young adults Health effects of internally deposited radionuclides, emphasis on radium and thorium Jan Author: Otto Raabe.

In their analysis, the authors summarize in one document clinical and epidemiological evidence, the results of animal studies, research on alpha-particle damage at the cellular level, metabolic pathways for internal alpha-emitters, dosimetry and microdosimetry of.

Potential health damage from exposure to radionuclides depends on a number of factors, and "can damage the functions of healthy tissue/organs. Radiation exposure can produce effects ranging from skin redness and hair loss, to radiation burns and acute radiation syndrome.

Prolonged exposure can lead to cells being damaged and in turn lead to cancer. Health Effects of Exposure to Low Levels of Ionizing Radiation: Health Effects of Exposure to Low Levels of Ionizing Radiation: BEIR V.

The ionizing radiation dose-response relationships for internally deposited radionuclides are examined using data from humans involving Ra and laboratory animal studies involving alpha-emitters Ra, Ra, Ra, Th, Pu, Pu, and Am and beta-emitters 90Y, 90Sr, 91Y, and Ce.

[International Agency for Research on Cancer.; World Health Organization.;] -- Evaluates the evidence for carcinogenicity of ionizing radiation from internally deposited radionuclides. The radionuclides considered belong to two broad categories, those that emit a-particles. Studies on populations exposed to internally deposited radionuclides should be continued to assess the risks of nuclear technologies and the effects of radon progeny.

Low-dose epidemiological studies may be able to supply information on the extent to which effects observed at high doses and high dose rates can be relied on to estimate the.

Health Risks of Radon and Other Internally Deposited Alpha-Emitters: BEIR IVAuthor: Division on Earth. Four isotopes of radium occur naturally and several more are man-made or are decay products of man-made isotopes. Radium is present in soil, minerals, foodstuffs, groundwater, and many common materials, including many used in construction.

In communities where wells are used, drinking water can be an important source of ingested radium. Radium has been used commercially in luminous paints. Internally Deposited Radionuclides for Therapy. The ultimate goal in radiotherapy, destruction of all tumor cells without serious damage to normal cells, can sometimes be approached through the use of internally deposited radionuclides.

Perhaps the most highly organ-specific radiopharmaceutical is sodium iodide (Na I). The health effects of ionizing radiation from external sources and internally deposited radionuclides have been more extensively investigated than any other hazardous agent or class of agents (McClellan, ).

Thus, ionizing radiation is an ideal toxicant to evaluate relative to the concept of : Roger O. McClellan. @article{osti_, title = {BEIR-IV: The effects on populations of exposure to internally deposited alpha-emitting radionuclides, Health risks of radon and other internally deposited alpha-emitters}, author = {Fabrikant, J I}, abstractNote = {This report attempts to respond to a broad range of scientific questions that impact current public health issues; not all of these questions.

The dosimetry performed in nuclear medicine is called internal dosimetry. This name illustrates the fact that the doses are deposited by particles emitted from radionuclides located within the body. @article{osti_, title = {REDIQ: a computer program for estimating health effects from inhalation and ingestion of radionuclides}, author = {Strenge, D L and Watson, E C and Kennedy, W E}, abstractNote = {The computer program REDIQ calculates the risk equivalence of dosage from internally deposited radionuclides to dosage from external whole-body irradiation.

SC Development of Models for Brain Dosimetry for Internally Deposited Radionuclides Description SC will prepare a commentary that describes new methodological approaches to obtain dose to the brain following intakes of radionuclides.

The fact that exposure to ionizing radiation—irrespective of whether it is from external sources or from internally deposited radionuclides— increases the risk of incurring adverse health effects was dramatically brought to the attention of the public by the atomic bombing of Cited by: 2.There is rising concern as to whether exposure to RF radiation emitted by a mobile phone affects human health and, specifically, whether mobile-phone use increases the risk of cancer of the brain.

The general public, manufacturers, regulatory authorities and public health agencies are seeking evidence on the safety of mobile-phone use._____, "Health Effects of Radon and Other Internally Deposited Alpha Emitters," Biological Effects of Ionizing Radiation, BEIR IV, Washington, D.C., National Academy Press, NCRP, "Evaluation of Occupational and Environmental Exposures to Radon and Radon Daughters in the United States," Washington, D.C., a.
