Most X-ray markers with initials comprise of a privilege and a left letter with the radiographer's initials. There are additionally accessible markers to show situating of the body e.g. prostrate, or as to time when performing systems, for example, an Intravenous pyelogram.

Different Aspects of Clinical Lead X-Ray Markers

Lead markers for radiography are additionally known by various distinctive names including anatomical side markers, Pb markers, X-ray markers, and radiographic film distinguishing proof markers.

new procedure shows promise in reducing nighttime waking

Early Intervention

One in nine people over the age of 65 have Alzheimer’s. That number jumps to one in three for those over 85. However, it can take 4.5 years from the first symptoms to a diagnosis. This needs to change. 08/29/2016

Proton therapy for cancer just as effective and safer than standard radiotherapy

This was the conclusion of a trial led by Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) in Boston and published in The Lancet Oncology. Lead and corresponding author Torunn Yock - director of pediatric radiation oncology at MGH, and an associate professor of radiation oncology at Harvard Medical School in Boston, MA - says:

Radiation exposure increases risk of health problems for medical staff

Researchers found that health care workers who perform fluoroscopy for heart procedures are at greater risk for orthopedic problems, cataracts, skin lesions and cancers. Study leader Maria Grazia Andreassi, PhD, head of the Genetics and Molecular Epidemiology Unit at the National Research Council Institute of Clinical Physiology in Pisa, Italy, and colleagues publish their findings in the journal Circulation: Cardiovascular Interventions.

No evidence that CT scans, X rays cause cancer

Writing in the American Journal of Clinical Oncology, the researchers describe how the linear no-threshold model (LNT) - first proposed over 70 years ago - is used to estimate cancer risks from low-dose radiation, such as medical imaging.
