Thyroid, Parathyroid and Eye Dose Evaluation in Head and Neck Computed Tomography Examinations, Phantom and Clinical Study

Synopsis: 
In this paper, we report on some critical organ doses from brain computed tomography (CT) scans in different depths of phantom and compare with patient's dosimetry. This is significant because most studies evaluate the organ doses from surface dosimetry of the patient but we estimated the organ dose, with lesser fault, in different depths of humanoid phantom.

Synopsis: 
In the present study, we established and compared differences of the rat’s hypothyroid model induced by MMI added to drinking water or given through an intragastric tube.

ABSTRACT

Objective: It is agreed that methimazole (MMI) can be administered to induce hypothyroidism. However, there are conflicting data about its effect on thyroid function and development in rats through different administrations. In the present study, we established and compared differences of the rat hypothyroid model induced by MMI added to drinking water or given through an intragastric tube.
