Effects of Ionizing Radiation on Respiratory Function Tests and Blood Parameters in Radiology Staff

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2012.311
Pages: 
40–5
Synopsis: 
Radiology staff constantly exposed to ionizing radiation was evaluated to determine the relationship between pulmonary function and blood parameters. Although the respiratory functions of radiology staff are affected by many factors, continuous exposure to ionizing radiation is one of the important parameters. Radiology staff should be informed about preventable factors that negatively affect respiratory functions.

ABSTRACT

Aim: To evaluate pulmonary function tests and blood parameters and their relationship with sociodemographic data for radiology staff continuously exposed to ionizing radiation.

The Hypothesis of an Effective Safe and Novel Radioprotective Agent: Hydrogen-rich Solution

Issue: 
Pages: 
122–4
Synopsis: 
The explosive hydrogen gas could selectively reduce hydroxyl which plays an important role in irradiation-induced injury. Hydrogen-rich solution may be a novel, safe and effective radioprotector.
