Technical aspects on DAP calibration and CT calibration

H. Järvinen, O. Turak, M. Ginjaume, J. Daures, C. Hourdakis, P. Ferrari & F. Mariotti
Abstract: This report is the final outcome and summary of the work of the EURADOS WG12, Sub-Group (SG) 3: Technical aspects on DAP calibration and CT calibration. Management of patient dose in the high dose procedures of interventional radiology (IR) and computed tomography (CT) requires regular and accurate determinations of the practical dose quantities, which are relevant for the basis of actual patient dose determination and setting of the diagnostic reference levels (DRL) or trigger...

Patient maximum skin dose in interventional procedures in radiology and cardiology: summary of WG 12 activities

Olivera Ciraj Bjelac, Jérémie Dabin, Jad Farah, Hannu Järvinen, Francoise Malchair, Teemu Siiskonen & Željka Knežević
Abstract: Fluoroscopically guided interventional procedures in radiology (IR) and cardiology (IC) are techniques that have had wide diffusion in the last decades. Scarcely invasive, they reduce most of the risks to patients and the expenses of operating theatres. Nevertheless, prolonged exposures due, for instance, to complicated interventional procedures or inappropriate equipment may result in high doses to both patients and staff members, in particular, with potentially high radiation doses to the skinof a patient. Working...

Quality Assurance in Individual Monitoring for External Radiation – Results of EURADOS Survey 2012

P. J. Gilvin, J. G. Alves, C. Chesteres, J. W. E. van Dijk, M. Lehtinen, F. Rossi, B. Vekic & M. A. Chevallier
Abstract: EURADOS Working Group 2 (WG2) on Harmonization of Individual Monitoring is a network of institutions and individual monitoring services (IMSs), built up over the last 20 years, that aims to promote quality, technical excellence and good practice in Europe. In pursuit of these aims, in 2012 WG2 carried out a survey of IMSs in Europe. The survey was sent to about 170 IMS and included questions on: the use of formal quality assurance (QA)...

Decomposing demographic contributions to the effective population size with moose as a case study

Stine Svalheim Markussen, Aline Lee, Ane Myhre, Steinar Engen, Erling Solberg, Hallvard Haanes, Knut H Røed, Ivar Herfindal, Morten Heim & Bernt-Erik Sæther
Levels of random genetic drift are influenced by demographic factors, such as mating system, sex ratio and age structure. The effective population size (Ne) is a useful measure for quantifying genetic drift. Evaluating relative contributions of different demographic factors to Ne is therefore important to identify what makes a population vulnerable to loss of genetic variation. Until recently, models for estimating Ne have required many simplifying assumptions, making them unsuitable for this task. Here, using...
