Does the Current System of Radiological Protection Sometimes Lead to Unintended Unethical Actions?

Fri, 06/18/2021 - 17:08 The core of the current system of radiological protection (SRP) consists of 3 fundamental principles: justification, optimization, and applying ionizing radiation dose limits 1 : the principle of justification specifies that any activity (or intervention) that changes the exposure scenario should be overall beneficial to individuals and/or society; the principle of optimization specifies that radiation doses should be as […]

Low Doses of Ionizing Radiation as a Treatment for Alzheimer’s Disease: A Pilot Study

Thu, 04/08/2021 - 14:16
Background: In 2015, a patient in hospice with Alzheimer’s disease (AD) was treated with ionizing radiation to her brainusing repeated CT scans. Improvement in cognition, speech, movement, and appetite was observed. These improvementswere so momentous that she was discharged from the hospice to a long-term care home. Based on this case, we conducted apilot clinical […]

The results of clinical trials performed from the 1930s until the end of the 20th century in which total-body ultra-low level ionizing radiation (TB-LLR) was used demonstrate that this form of treatment can be equal or superior to other systemic anti-neoplastic modalities in terms of the rates of remissions, toxicity, and side effects. In this […]
