The September issue of Health Physics covers the chain from being exposed to radiation, the risk that exposure might pose, to the effect it might cause. Dr. Keyhandokht Karimi conducts an, "Estimation of the Effective Dose of Radiation Workers: Optimization Based on the Weight Percentile" while Dr. Zhenyu Xiong and colleagues present an, "Assessment of Eye Lense Dose Reduction When Using Lateral Lead Shields on the Patient's Head during Neuro Interventional Fluroscopic Procedures and Cone-beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) Scans". Michiya Sasaki and colleagues consider risk in, "Effect of Radiation Dose Rate on Circulatory Disease Mortality among Nuclear Workers: Reanalysis of Hanford Data". And finally, a trio of articles examines the effect of high doses: "Acute radiation-induced GI-ARS and H-ARS in a Canine Model of Mixed Neutron/Gamma Relative to Reference Co-60 Gamma Radiation: A Retrospective Study" by Thomas McVittie, "Effects of Amifostine Pre-treatment on miRNA, IncRNA, and mRNA Profiles in the Hypothalamus of Mice Exposed to 60Co Gamma Radiation" by Dr. Changhui Ge and colleaues, and "Inhibiting Glycogen Synthase Kinase-3 Mitigates the Hematopoietic Acute Radiation Syndrome in a Sex and Strain Dependent Manner in Mice" by Dr. David Kirsch and colleagues. Follow the whole chain from exposure to risk to effect in the September issue of Health Physics!
