Dosimetry for second cancer risk estimation in radiotherapy:measurements in water phantoms

R. M. Harrison, A. Di Fulvio, J. M. Bordy, S. Miljanić, L. Stolarczyk & Ž. Knežević
Abstract: This report describes dosimetry techniques used by EURADOS Working Group 9 (Radiation Dosimetry in Radiotherapy) to measure out-of -field doses for use in radiotherapy. Several passive dosimeter types were used, based on the physical principles of thermoluminescence (TLD), optically simulated luminescence (OSL) and radiophotoluminescence (RPL), in addition to an ionization chamber used as a reference standard. Superheated drop, bubble damage and track etch detectors were used specifically for neutron measurements. In this report, doses...

Structural brain network abnormalities and the probability of seizure recurrence after epilepsy surgery: supplementary material

Nishant Sinha, Yujiang Wang, Nádia Moreira Da Silva, Anna Miserocchi, Andrew McEvoy, Jane De Tisi, Sjoerd Vos, Gavin Winston, John Duncan & Peter Taylor
Objective: We assessed pre-operative structural brain networks and clinical characteristics of patients with drug resistant temporal lobe epilepsy (TLE) to identify correlates of post-surgical seizure recurrences. Methods: We examined data from 51 TLE patients who underwent anterior temporal lobe resection (ATLR) and 29 healthy controls. For each patient, using the preoperative structural, diffusion, and post-operative structural MRI, we generated two networks: ‘pre-surgery’ network and ‘surgically-spared’ network. Standardising these networks with respect to controls, we determined...

Neil Ross, Robert Bingham, Fausto Ferraccioli, Tom Jordan, Anne Le Brocq, David Rippin & Martin Siegert
An airborne radar survey was flown over the Institute and Moller ice streams in the Weddell Sea sector of West Antarctica in the austral summer of 2010/11 as part of the Institute-Moller Antarctic Funding Initiative (IMAFI) project (grant reference number: NE/G013071/1).

Data from: The complex synaptic pathways onto a looming-detector neuron revealed using serial block-face scanning electron microscopy (SBEM)

Gerd Leitinger, F. Claire Rind, Armin Zankel, Peter Pölt & Stefan Wernitznig
The locust’s lobula giant movement detector 1 (LGMD1) looming detector pathway is part of the compound eye visual system and enables the animals to reliably detect collisions. Trans-medullary afferent neurons are considered key players in this pathway. Thousands of these neurons connect the second visual neuropile region, or medulla, with the third neuropile region, or lobula complex. In the lobula complex they are in synaptic contact with the LGMD1, which forms a dendritic tree in...

The aim of the network is to promote research and development and European cooperation in the field of dosimetry of ionizing radiation and its implementation in routine practice, in order to contribute to compatibility...

In the Orality/Aurality of the Book

Christos Kakalis
This article examines the role of language in the constitution of a common identity through its liturgical use at the Eastern Orthodox church of St Andrew’s in Edinburgh, Scotland. Open to individuals who have relocated, the parish has a rather multinational character. It is a place of worship for populations that consider Christian Orthodox culture part of their long-established collective identity and for recent converts. Based on ethnographic research, archival work and theoretical contextualisation, the...

The Effect of Nitrate-Rich Beetroot Juice on Markers of Exercise-Induced Muscle Damage: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis of Human Intervention Trials

Louise Jones, Stephen J. Bailey, Samantha N. Rowland, Nehal Alsharif, Oliver M. Shannon & Tom Clifford
This systematic review and meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials examined whether dietary nitrate supplementation attenuates exercise-induced muscle damage (EIMD) and is reported according to the PRISMA guidelines. Medline and SPORTDiscus databases were searched from inception to June 2020. Inclusion criteria were studies in adult humans consuming inorganic nitrate before and after exercise and that measured markers implicated in the etiology of EIMD (muscle function, muscle soreness, inflammation, myocellular protein efflux, oxidative stress, range of motion)...
