Late Effects Radiation CH36
Late Effects of Radiation CH36
What is the difference between Stochastic and Deterministic and their characteristics?
- Radiation responses that increase in INCIDENCES (not severity) with increased dose
Late Effects, Non Threshold
- Radiation responses that increase in severity with increased dose
Early Effects, Threshold
What are the latent periods of leukemia and skin cancers?
Latent- 4-7 Years
At Risk-20 Years
Latent- 5-10 Years
What are some examples of possible late effects of radiation?
What is the potential reduced life span for every rad exposure?
About 10 Days for every Rad
What is the dose response relationship for late effects of
What type of conditions did early Radiologists experience?
Radiodermatitis-Fluoro- Went away over time if exposure to radiation was halted
What is Relative Risk and what is it's formula?, excess and absolute risks and what are the formulas for relative and excess risks?
Compares a number of persons in an exposed population with a number in an unexposed population who show the same late effect.
What is the leading cause of lung cancer?
Which trimester is the most radiosensitive for a fetus and what are the potential effects of radiation during that trimester?
What are the rad doses and how do those dose effect fertility in men and women?
10-May Delay Cycle
200-Induces temporary Inferetility
10-Decrease in Sperm Count
200-Temporary Infertility(2-12mo After Exposure)
(Any dose can lead to genetic abnormalities)
What type of cancers did watch dial painters have an increase in and why?
BONE CANCER They used paint made of RADIUM SULFATE and then licked the tips to make a fine point. Which means they injested it more
What is the dose response relationship for skin cancer?
Threshold Dose Response
(It takes a certian amount of Rad to cause a response)
What dose response relationship radiation safety practices are based?
(We believe that every single dose recieved to the body carries a risk to the body)
What is the dose relationship of stochastic and deterministic effects?
Stochastic-Non Threshold, Late Effects
Deterministic-Threshold, Early Effects
What is the most common malignancy linked to utero radiation?
What are some of the results from fetal radiation exposure?
Radiation induced mutaions are usually harmful
What is Excess Risk and what is it's formula?
The excess amount of cases that are assumed to be radiation induced
ER=Observed Cases-Expected Cases
What is Absolute Risk?
The total risk of genetic mutation appearing in a certian population
Describe the characterisitcs of Cataracts?
As age goes up-Sensitivity goes up-Latent period goes down
Non linear threshold
What is the ratio for women developing breast cancer?
1:9 will develop breast cancer
What are all radiation induced malignancies?
They are ALL Stochastic
Who helped to set dose limits and the exsistence of non threshold dose effect?
Who confirmed linear non threshold dose relationships?
