    Four things can happen when radiation enters a cell: 1. The radiation may pass through without any damage occurring; 2. The radiation may damage the cell, but the cell repairs the damage; 3. The radiation may damage the cell the damage is not repaired and the cell replicates itself in the damaged form; 4. The cell dies. The book has to do with cancer, and radiation is of course closely associated with cancer. It has this dual personality of both causing and curing cancer. This book speaks to both of those aspects, and it does so from a human perspective. You see cancer through the eyes of the patients who are suffering from the disease, and you see it through.

    Radiation is energy in the form of waves of particles. There are two forms of radiation – non-ionizing and ionizing – which will be discussed in sections and , respectively. Non-ionizing radiation. Non-ionizing radiation has less energy than ionizing radiation; it does not possess enough energy to.). In addition to the exposure to ionizing radiation that is received from natural sources, people are exposed to radiation from artificial sources as well, the largest of which is the use of X-rays in medical diagnosis (Table 2). Lesser sources of exposure to man-made radiation include radioactive minerals (e.g., U, Th, 40K, Ra) in building.

Non-ionising electromagnetic radiation - ultraviolet, visible, infrared, microwave, radio frequency and laser radiation - have exciting medical applications but are also potentially hazardous.

Lasers are a late-twentieth-century phenomenon which present new opportunites in surgery as well as the potential for inflicting serious biological damage.

Ionizing radiation is more harmful than nonionizing radiation because it has enough energy to remove an electron from an atom and thereby directly damage biological material.

The energy is enough to damage DNA, which can result in cell death or cancer. The study of ionizing radiation is a large area of. Ionizing radiation is the term given to forms of radiation that are energetic enough to displace orbiting electrons from the atoms in the absorbing medium, thus forming positive ions.

The process of ionization is the principal means by which ionizing radiations dissipate their energy in matter and thus may cause biomolecular damage.

The biological effects of ionizing radiation are determined by both the radiation dose and the radiation quality ionization density. To understand the radiation protection concerns associated with different types of ionizing radiation, knowledge Notes On Ionising Radiation Biological E book both the extent of exposure and consequent macroscopic dose absorbed – gray value, as well as the microscopic dose distribution of the radiation.

evaluating the biological basis to radiological protection practices. Personnel being trained as future radiation protection personnel should have a basic understanding of the biological and clinical basis to the exposure limitations that they are subject to and that they implement for industrial workers and the public at large.

Ionizing Radiation Definition. The term radiation means to give off energy as waves or particles. Ionizing radiation gives off energy by knocking electrons off atoms, which causes the atoms to have a charge.

Another term for a charged particle is an ion. The charges on the atomic particles make ionizing radiation unstable and reactive. Ionizing radiation (e.g., beta particles, alpha particles, neutrons, gamma rays) has sufficient energy to ionize surrounding atoms.

Ionization is a process of removing one or more electrons from an atom. The ionization process can lead to biological damage when DNA, the controlling molecule of a cell, is affected. Absorption of radiation • Biological systems are very sensitive to radiation • Absorption of 4 Gy in water produces the rise in temperature ~ oC (~67 cal in kg person) • Whole body dose of 4 Gy given to human is lethal in 50% of cases (LD50) • The potency of radiation.

Proceedings of the International Conference on Non-Ionizing Radiation at UNITEN (ICNIR) Electromagnetic Fields and Our Health 20th – 22nd October 1 Non-Ionizing Radiations – Sources, Biological Effects, Emissions and Exposures Kwan-Hoong Ng Department of Radiology University of Malaya Kuala Lumpur Malaysia [email protected] ABSTRACT.

Ionizing radiation, flow of energy in the form of atomic and subatomic particles or electromagnetic waves that is capable of freeing electrons from an atom, causing the atom to become charged (or ionized).Ionizing radiation includes the more energetic end of the electromagnetic spectrum (X-rays and gamma rays) and subatomic particles, such as electrons, neutrons, and alpha.

Like ionizing radiation, such as x-rays and gamma rays, NIR is a part of the electromagnetic (EM) spectrum and is propagated as waves through a vacuum or some medium. However, NIR differs from ionizing radiation because it consists of lower quantum energies and, therefore, has different biological effects.

NIR displays its own unique personality. NEBOSH IGC2 Revision Notes NEBOSH IGC Revision Guide. NEBOSH (National Examination Board in Occupational Safety and Health) is a UK-based independent examination board delivering vocational qualifications in health, safety & environmental practice and management.

The fact that ionizing radiation produces biological damage has been known for many years. The first case of human injury was reported in the literature just a few months following Roentgen's original paper in announcing the discovery of x. 2 Biological effects of ionising radiation [Ref.

Landolt-Börnstein New Series VIII/4 Cellular effects Primary events following exposure to ionising radiation Ionising radiations, hereafter abbreviated to radiation(s), can be classified into directly or indirectly ionising. a variety of ways, such as by chemical, biological and physical agents or by ionising radiation.

The effects of the damage from ionising radiation can be short-term or long-term depending on the means and severity of the exposure. The most important long-term effect of radiation exposure is an increased chance of getting cancer.

THE USE OF IONISING RADIATION IN THE MANUFACTURE OF MEDICINAL PRODUCTS 1. INTRODUCTION This note for guidance is intended for applicants wishing to use ionising radiation in the manufacture of medicinal products. Irradiation may be used for microbial decontamination, sterilisation or other treatments.

4, 5 Radiation hormesis is a hypothesis based on the statement that low doses of radiation (ranging from 5 mSv to about mSv for X and gamma radiation) can have a positive effect on health.

The old unit for this is the curie (Ci), in honour of Pierre and Marie Curie who discovered radium and polonium. The curie is based on the activity of 1 gram of radium, i.e.

x radioactive disintegrations per second. Ionizing radiation (ionising radiation) is radiation, traveling as a particle or electromagnetic wave, that carries sufficient energy to detach electrons from atoms or molecules, thereby ionizing an atom or a molecule.

Ionizing radiation is made up of energetic subatomic particles, ions or atoms moving at high speeds (usually greater than 1% of the speed of light), and. Typical sources of ionising radiation that may affect the design or construction of structures are.

Nuclear reactors: If an atom has too many neutrons to form a stable isotope (see Section ), it will spontaneously decay into two or more lighter atoms and emit isotopes decay so slowly that they are found in ore, such as uranium (a heavy atom with atomic number = 92).

(b) Biological Oncogenic viruses, some parasites, etc. (c) Physical Ionising radiation like X-rays and y-rays, non-ionising radiations like UV-rays.

(x) Cancer can be detected by the following methods: (a) Blood and bone marrow tests for increased cell counts.

(b) Biopsy and histopathological studies of the tissue.In medical applications, the radiation absorbed dose (rad) is more often used (1 rad = Gy; 1 rad results in the absorption of J/kg of tissue). The SI unit measuring tissue damage caused by radiation is the sievert (Sv).

This takes into account both the energy and the biological effects of the type of radiation involved in the.
