The practice of radiobiology in the radiologic sciences

, : The practice of radiobiology in the radiologic sciences. Radiologic Technology 66(1): 25-31; Quiz 32-3

To effectively practice radiation protection, radiographers must understand the potential biologic effects of radiation. This article reviews the importance of a knowledge of radiobiology to the work of radiologic technologists. The author describes four specific biologic effects from radiation exposure--leukemia, thyroid cancer, breast cancer and fetal effects--and presents clinical examples that relate to current radiation protection practices and concerns.

Evidence points to magnesium's antioxidant, anti-necrotic, and anti-apoptotic effects in cardio- and neuroprotection. With magnesium being involved in over 300 biochemical reactions, the mechanisms underlying its cytoprotective and antioxidan...
