Exploring the effects of low-dose radiation
Radioactivity existed since the beginning of the universe. But while the effects of high-dose radiation are widely explored, the impact of human exposure to low-dose radiation is not fully understood. An important landmark in the research field of low-dose radiation is the EU-funded research project GENRISK-T. Cancer scientists and radiation biologists at six European laboratories collaborated to study the risk of thyroid cancer after exposure to ionizing radiation.

Molly Cheshire Interviews Scientist on Radon and LOW Cancer rates! Prof. Bernie Cohen pt 1
Learn from a scientist who did the worlds largest study on radon...Bernard Leonard Cohen (June 14, 1924 – March 17, 2012) was born in Pittsburgh,and was Professor Emeritus of Physics at the University of Pittsburgh. Professor Cohen was a staunch opponent to the so-called Linear no-threshold model (LNT) which postulates there exists no safe threshold for radiation exposure. His views, what was in the 1980s and 1990s considered a self-marginalizing posture had gained within 20 years support from a strong minority.He died in March 2012. No-threshold and plutonium toxicity debates He claimed: "All estimates of the cancer risk from low level radiation are based on the linear-no threshold theory (LNT) which is based solely on largely discredited concepts of radiation carcinogenesis, with no experimental verification in the low dose region of the most important applications. These risk estimates are now leading to the expenditure of tens of billions of dollars to protect against dangers whose existence is highly questionable. It is therefore of utmost importance to test the validity of this theory."[5] A conclusion with an update to the landmark study published 1995, continues: "Since no other plausible explanation has been found after years of effort by myself and others, I conclude that the most plausible explanation for our discrepancy is that the linear-no threshold theory fails, grossly over-estimating the cancer risk in the low dose, low dose rate region. There are no other data capable of testing the theory in that region. "An easy answer to the credibility of this conclusion would be for someone to suggest a potential not implausible explanation based on some selected variables. I (or he) will then calculate what values of those variables are required to explain our discrepancy. We can then make a judgement on the plausibility of that explanation. To show that this procedure is not unreasonable, I offer to provide a not-implausible explanation for any finding of any other published ecological study. This alone demonstrates that our work is very different from any other ecological study, and therefore deserves separate consideration."[6] His debates in academic periodicals and published correspondence with R. William Field, Brian J. Smith (assistant professor of biostatistics, University of Iowa), Jerry Puskin (from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency), Sarah Darby, and Sir Richard Doll and others regarding his radon-related ecologic studies are well known.[7][8][9] Among other expert panels, the World Health Organization's International Agency for Research on Cancer discussed at length Cohen's results then concluded:"The weight of evidence is that the ecological analyses of Cohen can be rejected."[10] In March, 2011, Professor Cohen stated, reflecting on his study and its controversial results that low levels of radiation can have beneficial health effects and reduce the risks of cancer, "There is evidence on both sides. Whether low-level radiation is protective against cancer, a theory called radiation hormesis, is debated in the scientific community. Furthermore, "...[on his viewpoint, and its support found in his exhaustive studies] it could go further and say that no confounding factors (like socio-economic, geography, ethnicity, medical care access, and beyond 500 explored in the analysis) can explain the results. However, my study was designed to test the assumption that the danger of radiation is simply proportional to the radiation dose, which is the only evidence that low-level radiation may be harmful. My conclusion was that that assumption is false.".[1][6][11] Reputable scientists disagree about that;[12][13] the debate is far from over. Given the uncertain effects of low-level radiation, there is a pressing need for good quality research in this area.[14] Subsequent research would join a profound array of positions including a 1982 United Nations' work-group study -UNSCEAR- concluding: "There appear to be no nonspecific effects from low doses of radiation that result in a shortening of the life span."[

Medical Radiation and cancer risk: assessing the price of progress
Medical Radiation and cancer risk: assessing the price of progress Air date: Friday, January 11, 2013, 12:00:00 PM Category: NIH Director's Seminars Runtime: 01:02:02 Description: NIH Director's Seminar Radiation exposure to the US population from diagnostic imaging has increased 6-fold in the last three decades, primarily due to the rapid increase in CT scans from 1 to 80 million per year. Despite the great medical benefits there are concerns about the potential future cancer risks from CT and other higher dose imaging tests such as nuclear medicine cardiac stress tests. Dr. Berrington's Radiation Epidemiology Branch conducted the first study to directly assess the cancer risks after CT scans in a historical cohort study of 200,000 children in the UK. Dr. Berrington will discuss the first results from this study and also present risk projections for the number of future cancers in the US that may be related to diagnostic imaging in children and adults if use continues at current levels. Recently a number of new screening tests such as lung CT and CT colonography have been proposed for use in the general population, and newer radiotherapy techniques like proton therapy have become more widespread. Dr. Berrington will also describe work that she has conducted that assesses the balance of the potential benefits against the radiation-related cancer risks for these emerging technologies.

⚛ Chernobyl Cancer Study Confirms Risk ⚛
All studies cited… New study reviewed Kashcheev et al. (2014). Incidence and mortality of solid cancer among emergency workers of the Chernobyl accident: assessment of radiation risks for the follow-up period of 1992-2009. Radiation and Environmental Biophysics. Oct 15. http://pubmed.gov/25315643 Meta-analyses of radiation-worker studies cited @ 1:56 Jacob et al. (2009). Is cancer risk of radiation workers larger than expected? Occupational and Environmental Medicine, 66(12):789–96. http://pubmed.gov/19570756 Relevant quote of Jacob: "The ICRP and BEIR VII base their DDREFs mainly on radiobiological results including animal data, which, in their majority, suggest a characteristically low risk for low-dose-rate exposures. It remains an open question as to why this characteristic is apparently not reflected in the human epidemiological data." Cardis et al. (2007). The 15-Country Collaborative Study of Cancer Risk among Radiation Workers in the Nuclear Industry: estimates of radiation-related cancer risks. Radiation Research, 167(4):396-416. http://pubmed.gov/17388693 Relevant quote of Cardis: "Risk estimates per unit dose from this study are statistically compatible with estimates that serve as the basis for current radiation protection standards. They range from values lower than the BEIR VII estimates up to values that exceed these estimates by a factor of about six for both solid cancers and leukemia. This is the largest analytical epidemiological study of the effects of low-dose protracted exposures to ionizing radiation to date." So the radiation-worker epidemiology (involving slow-dose rates) match or exceed the risk of BEIR VII, which is based on the atomic-bomb cohort (involving a fast-dose rate). So it seems dubious that slow dose rates are less harmful, and Kashcheev (2014) adds to that impression. Other Chernobyl worker solid-cancer studies cited @ 2:05 Rahu et al. (2013).

Why cancer may require a higher radiation dose in diagnostic imaging
If you have concerns about the safety of various diagnostic scans, especially those that expose you to ionizing radiation on a regular basis, watch MD Anderson experts explain some myths about diagnostic imaging and why certain levels of radiation are required. Not all diagnostic imaging involves ionizing radiation. (Ultrasound and MRI are two exceptions.) But for those that do, MD Anderson doctors use the lowest doses possible to get the answers they need. The risks of radiation exposure through medical testing are actually very small — and still theoretical. But MD Anderson minimizes even those risks by tailoring the amount of radiation to the size of each patient, as well as to the purpose of each scan. Learn more about [insert cancerwise link]

Lasers commonly operate in the UV, visible, and IR frequencies." Radiation Therapy- National Cancer Institute http://www.cancer.gov/publications/patient-education/radiationttherapy.pdf "Radiation therapy (also called radiotherapy) is a cancer treatment that uses high doses of radiation to kill cancer cells and stop them from spreading. At low doses, radiation is used as an x-ray to see inside your body and take pictures, such as x-rays of your teeth or broken bones. Radiation used in cancer treatment works in much the same way, except that it is given at higher doses."

Low Dose CT Scans to Look for Lung Cancer
It's estimated a quarter million Americans will be diagnosed with lung cancer this year. It's the leading cause of cancer deaths for both men and women. More than half of patients find out they have lung cancer when it's almost too late. Lung cancer continues to frustrate doctors and decimate patients. It's one of the most commonly diagnosed and most lethal of cancers. "Unfortunately most of the patients present in late stages of disease. And the reason is that many times it doesn't have very specific symptoms," says Dr. Frank Rodriguez, an oncologist with Lee Memorial Health System medical staff. Doctors have long searched for a reliable screening test, in particular for high risk groups including smokers over the age of 55, those with a history of second hand smoke exposure, and anyone with occupational exposure to inhaled chemicals. Many doctors used chest x-rays to look for early tumors. "The problem with chest x-rays is that they're not very specific or sensitive, meaning that they often can't delineate or separate good things from bad things," says Dr. Rodriguez. Instead of giving up, researchers looked deeper into more advanced x-ray technology to find something more reliable that might save lives. "There's a better alternative now. There's something called a Low Dose Computerized Tomography, or low dose CAT scan, which basically looks at the lungs and the chest in a way that gives much more information than on a regular x-ray," says Dr. Rodriguez. A low dose, spiral CT scan generates a 3D image in a matter of seconds while keeping radiation exposure to a minimum. It is more successful at finding lesions. Studies find it's better than standard x-rays. "They could actually compare to plain x-rays decreased risk of mortality of lung cancer by 20 percent, which is a significant number," says Dr. Rodriguez. Sixty percent of lung cancers are currently picked up in late stages. Something with the potential to find cancer early could be the game changer doctors are looking for.

(All proceeds Dr. Greger receives from the sales of his books, DVDs, and speaking engagements go to support the 501c3 nonprofit that runs NutritionFacts.org.) DESCRIPTION: Pediatric CAT scans are estimated to cause hundreds of cancer deaths every year. As I explain in my full-length live presentation on preventing, arresting, and reversing the 15 top killers (Uprooting the Leading Causes of Death http://nutritionfacts.org/video/uprooting-the-leading-causes-of-death/), adverse drug reactions from prescription drugs are estimated to cause more than 100,000 deaths in the United States every year, making doctors the sixth leading cause of death. And that's not counting other "iatrogenic" (physician-caused) harm, such as medication errors or infections acquired in hospitals. My profession needs to do a better job of offering fully informed consent, clearly and comprehensively explaining the risks and benefits of each alternate course of action. The risk associated with the thallium heart scans was shocking to me. By eating healthy, we may not only eliminate the death and disability associated with heart disease and its treatment (such as open heart surgery), but the risks associated with heart disease diagnosis as well.

Low-Dose CT Scans
Sometimes less really is more - that certainly applies to low-dose CT scans. "Any type of x-ray radiation, even the smallest dose, carries a very small risk. And when you multiply that over millions of people, that risk is real and results in several radiation induced cancers," says Dr. Cory Duffek, neuroradiologist on the medical staff of Lee Memorial Health System. Over the past few decades, the amount of radiation emitted during even the standard CT scan is between 20 and 30% lower. With new technology, a single machine can deliver various doses, depending on the patient and procedure. "We go through a long process deciding with each and every scan that we do, exactly how much radiation we're going to be using and how much of the new software available to us we're going to be using, in order to try and maintain the same amount of image quality but decrease the dose," says Dr. Duffek. Low-dose scanners combine the best of both worlds. Providing detailed images while managing to lower the amount of radiation. It is especially important when it comes to children who are more sensitive than adults. "There's been a big push to use what we call a pediatric dose for pediatric scanning. With our new generation of scanners now, it allows us to lower that dose approximately another 15 to 30%," says Dr. Duffek. Exploring the body with the minimal risk to the patient makes low-dose scanners a screening super sleuth.

Radiation Exposure ,Radiation safety- Everything You Need To Know - Dr. Nabil Ebraheim
Dr. Ebraheim’s educational animated video demonstrates how radiation affects the body, the different types of radiology procedures, and safety recommendations. X-rays ionize human tissue and deposit energy that can cause harmful changes within the body (break the DNA chain). There is a cancer risk from X-rays. The dose of radiation is cumulative. X-rays are considered for carcinogen list. The government is attempting to avoid the use of unnecessary CT scans and x-rays to avoid unnecessary exposure to radiation. This highlights the cancer risk. Doctors need to pay close attention to the risks involved with the use of x-rays. The cancer risk associated with radiation exposure is documented in cases of atomic bomb survivors. The risk for medical uses is controversial and usually played down by physicians. Radiation at a high level is carcinogenic. The level of radiation from x-ray exposure is low. The effects of low-level radiation is not known. What is the safe radiation level? The safe level is not known. It is known that CT scans, fluoroscopy, mammography and x-rays expose the public to high levels of radiation especially in young females. The risk of exposure should balance the medical benefit. Optimize radiation doses by exposing the patient only to enough radiation to get a clear image. There is a growing concern about the risk associated with giving patient large doses of radiation. The use of CT scans has increased recently in adults and children possibly exposing the patient to an unnecessarily high dose of radiation. CT scan is the method often used to diagnose cancer, diseases fractures and it exposes the patient to a much larger does of radiation than x-rays. Radiation from CT scan of the pelvis equals the same amount as 100 chest x-rays. Children are ten times more sensitive to radiation than adults. 3-4 million children receive CT scans and about 1,500 of them will develop cancer two decades later. Children should not be given an adult dose of radiation. Radiation dose limits: CT scan of the pelvis has the highest level of exposure to the skin, marrow and gonads. Use mini fluoroscopy C-arm whenever possible. Fluoroscopy emits a lot of radiation. The closer the extremity is to the radiation source, the higher the dose of radiation the patient receives. When the distance from the beam increases, the dose of radiation is less. Attempt to decrease exposure time. Radiation intensity follows the inverse square law. It is all about distance. If the intensity of radiation at 1 meter from the source is 100 mR/hr then the intensity of radiation at 2 meters from the source is ¼ or 25 mR/hr in same unit area. At 3 meters from the source, the intensity of radiation is 1/9 the original or 11.1 mR/hr. Units of radiation (radiation nomenclature) •Roentgen: unit of radiation exposure in air. •Rad: energy absorbed per gram of tissue. •Rem: biological effect of a rad. There is less exposure to the physician when imaging a smaller body part. Larger body parts create an increased exposure to the physician when imaging a patient with C-arm. Do not be in the direct path of the radiation beam. Protection: •Monitoring: a dosimeter badge only records how much radiation you have received. It does not protect you from exposure to radiation. •Shielding: lead gowns and aprons work to stop exposure to fluoroscopy radiation. Lead aprons attenuate scattered radiation by about 95%. •Position Rapidly dividing cells are most sensitive to radiation exposure: sperms, lymphocytes, small intestine, and stomach. Radiation damage seldom appears at the time of radiation. The first effects of radiation damage is usually seen as a drop in the white blood cell count. The first external sign of damage is seen as a skin burn. Studies suggest that people who use fluoroscopy extensively have a higher rate of cataracts. Early effects or radiation exposure: •Death •Hematological depression •Chromosome aberration •Skin erythema •Epilation. Team exposure to radiation •Direct beam 4,000 mrem/min •Surgeon (1 ft.): 20 mrem/min whole body •First assist (2 ft.): 6 mrem/min whole body •No exposure (5 ft.) at scrub or anesthesiologist. •6 feet is safe.

What is a low-dose CT scan?
Dr Jeffrey Goree explains what a low-dose computerized tomography (LDCT) scan is. The Waddell Lung Initiative is funded by a grant from the Genesis Philanthropy and JoAnn Waddell Regional Fund for Hospice and Cancer Care Lung cancer is the leading cause of death from cancer. Early screenings usually are not covered by Medicare or insurance and by the time the cancer is detected, it is often too far advanced for most treatments to be successful. Minorities are at a higher risk to have lung cancer detected in late stages than the general population. This project provides at no cost to participants a preliminary assessment of potential risk of lung cancer through an online survey, and for those who are deemed high risk, a low-dose computerized tomography (LDCT) scan at any Genesis Imaging Center.

Lung Cancer Screening - Low Dose CT at Wake Forest Baptist Health
For patients at high risk of developing lung cancer, low-dose CT lung screening offers an opportunity to detect lung cancer at its earliest stage, when it is most treatable. The Comprehensive Cancer Center at Wake Forest Baptist: http://www.wakehealth.edu/Cancer/ Request an appointment: http://www.wakehealth.edu/Request-an-Appointment-Online/ TRANSCRIPT: BOBBIE MACDONALD/SCREENING PARTICIPANT: I'm an ex-smoker, I quit smoking ten years ago. RANDY MACDONALD/SCREENING PARTICIPANT: I've been smoking since I was 12. I've been smoking for 59 years and so I figured I should have things checked. BOBBIE: It's a well-known fact in medicine now that early detection and preventative care is the best route to wellness. BRENDA TAYLOR/SCREENING PARTICIPANT: My brother was always just healthy as a horse as they would say and just never had any medical issues at all until they found out that he had lung cancer and it had already spread. BOBBIE: Many people are very frightened by the word cancer and so they hesitate in getting testing done in case they do get a diagnosis they don't want to hear. BRENDA: Had he known a little earlier I think his outcome certainly could have been very different. RANDY: You know, it's time I took charge and said, OK, I'm going to quit and hopefully have some nice long years ahead of me. BRENDA: It just prompted me to see what I could do to proactively take care of myself. And so I went in and did the Lung Screening CT. WILLIAM JEFFREY PETTY, MD/HEMATOLOGY AND ONCOLOGY: There are two major ways to reduce the risk of lung cancer. The first is to stop smoking if people are currently smoking and the second is to try to catch lung cancers early. When we find the lung cancer early, we're oftentimes able to cure patients. CHRISTINA BELLINGER, MD/PULMONOLOGY: For some patients, the perception of lung cancer is that it's terminal. But that's not always the case. Lung cancer screening has been proven to detect lung cancer early when it's still in its treatable stage. Even if patients are still smoking, or even if they're afraid of the findings on the CT scan, it's important that they undergo Lung Cancer Screening as part of their health maintenance. PETTY: By undergoing screening, it's an opportunity for us to help those patients reduce their risk of developing an advanced cancer and help us to cure them. BELLINGER: But the only way to detect lung cancer early, if you are a smoker, is through Lung Cancer Screening. And that's specifically targeted to high-risk patients. PETTY: Folks who are over the age of 55 and are either currently smoking or have previously smoked and have quit within the last 15 years. BELLINGER: On the day of the CT scan, patients arrive at a dedicated scanning center and undergo low-dose screening CT. Low-dose CT scans have far less radiation than normal CT scans. PETTY: Many patients will have a normal CT scan with this screening examination and that's wonderful. BELLINGER: Out of every 100 patients scanned, approximately 15-20 will be found to have a lung nodule. And one of those will be lung cancer. PETTY: It is important to remember that this screening is not just a one-year process. It's something that people sign up for to do on an annual basis so that we can catch any lung cancers early throughout their lifetime. BELLINGER: Our Lung Cancer Screening program is more than just a CT scan. It involves smoking cessation, a low-dose screening CT for lung cancer, and comprehensive follow-up for any abnormalities found. If a nodule is found, our Lung Cancer Screening program is there to help patients navigate through the system. We have a multidisciplinary team including pulmonology, radiology, oncology, radiation oncology, and CT surgery. This team is at the disposal of the patient to provide the best possible patient care for the best possible patient outcome. PETTY: The CT Screening program at Wake Forest is a unique resource for the region. We're the only institution in the state of North Carolina to participate in the National Lung Screening trial and have been leaders in this arena for many many years. Current guidelines for CT Screening recommend that patients undergo screening at an institution that has significant experience with the procedure as well as the work-up for any abnormalities. At Wake Forest, we have that level of experience. BOBBIE: It's a disease process in our society that brings fear to the heart of many. And this is the best way to be sure and stay well. BRENDA: Take charge of your own health. And do all that you can do. BOBBIE: Anyone that is interested in keeping well and staying well and enjoying their life, go the preventative medicine route.

Doing More with Less: Radiation Doses Dropping - Mayo Clinic
Many misconceptions exist about the risks associated with radiation doses and CT scans. Experts at Mayo Clinic want patients to have the right information about radiation dose, including when to have procedures with radiation, such as a CT scan, versus when to have magnetic resonance imaging or other non-radiation tests. Since 2001, a team of diagnostic radiologists and medical physicists at Mayo Clinic have been actively developing and implementing new techniques to lower doses from CT. They have installed new CT scanners and software and implemented new scanning instructions to lower the doses for more than 100 different CT protocols. Amy Hara, M.D., a diagnostic radiologist at Mayo Clinic Arizona, says that doses have dropped more than 50 percent for several scan types. She emphasizes that their goal is to reduce the radiation dose without compromising the image quality — and advances in technology are making that possible.
