Title:Cobalt Blues [electronic resource] : The Story of Leonard Grimmett, the Man Behind the First Cobalt-60 Unit in the United States
Author(s): Peter R Almond

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:For the latter half of the 20th century, cobalt-60 units were the mainstay of radiation treatments for cancer. Cobalt Blues describes the development of the first cobalt-60 unit in the United States and the man behind it, LeonardGrimmett. Conceptuall y conceived before World War II, it only became possible because of the development of nuclear reactors during the war. Although Grimmett conceived of and published his ideas first, the Canadians built the firstunits because of the capability of their rea ctor to produce more suitable cobalt-60 sources. This book tells the story of how Grimmett and others came together at the time that the U S Atomic Energy Agency was pushing the use ofradioactivity in medicine. Due to his sudden death, very little informa tion about Grimmett was known until recently, when various documents have come to light, allowing the full story to be told

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Since the discovery of X-rays and radioactivity, ionizing radiations have been widely applied in medicine both for diagnostic and therapeutic purposes. The risks associated with radiation exposure and handling led to the paralleldevelopment of the fi eld of radiation protection. Pioneering experiments done by Sanche and co-workers in 2000 showed that low-energy secondary electrons, which are abundantly generated along radiation tracks, are primarily responsiblefor radiation damage through successive i nteractions with the molecular constituents of the medium. Apart from ionizing processes, which are usually related to radiation damage, below the ionization level low-energy electrons caninduce molecular fragmentation via dissociative processes such as i nternal excitation and electron attachment. This prompted collaborative projects between different research groups from European countries together with otherspecialists from Canada, the USA and Australia. This booksummarizes the advances achieved by thes e research groups after more than ten years of studies on radiation damage in biomolecular systems. The book will be of interest toresearchers and advanced students in the fields of radiation physics, chemistry and radiation therapy

Date:2009
Publisher:Dordrecht : Springer Netherlands
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This volume collects a series of lectures presented at the tenth ESI School held at Archamps (FR) in November 2007 and dedicated to radiotherapy and brachytherapy. The lectures focus on the multiple facets of radiotherapy ingeneral, including externa l radiotherapy (often called teletherapy) as well as internal radiotherapy (called brachytherapy). Radiotherapy strategy and dose management as well as the decisive role of digital imaging in the associatedclinical practice are developed in several articl es. Grouped under the discipline of Conformal Radiotherapy (CRT), numerous modern techniques, from Multi-Leaf Collimators (MLC) to Intensity Modulated RadioTherapy (IMRT), are explainedin detail. The importance of treatment planning based upon patient dat a from digital imaging (Computed Tomography) is also underlined. Finally, despite the quasi- totality of patients being presently treated with gamma and X-rays,novel powerful tools are emerging using proton and light ions (like carbon ions) beams, bound t o become more and more important in patient treatment. These technological developments, going under the comprehensive name ofHadrontherapy, are presented here with special focus on the rational and state of the art of the field. All topics are presented with didactical language and styles, making this book an appropriate reference for students andprofessionals seeking a comprehensive introduction to the field as well as a reliable outlook on the most recent developments

Note:Optimization has become an essential tool in addressing the limitation of resources and need for better decision-making in the medical field. Both continuous and discrete mathematical techniques are playing an increasinglyimportant role in understand ing several fundamental problems in medicine. This volume presents a wide range of medical applications that can utilize mathematical computing. Examples include using an algorithm for considering the seedreconstruction problem in brachytherapy and using optimization-classification models to assist in the early prediction, diagnosis and detection of diseases. Discrete optimization techniques and measures derived from the theory ofnonlinear dynamics, with analysis of multi-electrode electroencephalographic (EEG) data, assist in predicting impending epileptic seizures. Mathematics in medicine can also be found in recent cancer research. Sophisticated mathematicalmodels and optimization algorithms have been used to generate treatment plans for radionuclide i mplant and external beam radiation therapy. Optimization techniques have also been used to automate the planning process in Gamma Knifetreatment, as well as to address a variety of medical image registration problems. This work grew out of a workshop on o ptimization which was held during the 2005 CIM Thematic Term on Optimization in Coimbra, Portugal. It provides anoverview of the state-of-the-art in optimization in medicine and will serve as an excellent reference for researchers in the medical computing community and for those working in applied mathematics and optimization

Note:Thermoluminescence (TL) is a well-established technique widely used in dosimetric and dating applications. Although several excellent reference books exist which document both the theoretical and experimental aspects of TL, thereis a general lack of books that deal with specific numerical and practical aspects of analyzing TL data. Many times the practical details of analyzing numerical TL glow curves and of applying theoretical models are difficult to find inthe published literature. Numerical and P ractical Exercises in Thermoluminescence provides a practical guide for both established researchers and for new graduate students entering the field of TL, and is intended to be used inconjunction with and as a practical supplement to standard textbooks in the field
