As promulgated by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission, packaging regulations for radioactive material are confusing (e.g., “activity” vs “contained” activity vs “total” activity). As a consequence, medical physicists are forced to secondguess the intent of the regulations.

1/2/2010 · Medical Physics
Recent improvements to the functionality and stability of implantable pacemakers and cardioverter-defibrillators involve changes that include efficient battery power consumption and radiation hardened electrical circuits. Manufacturers have also pursued MRI-compatibility for these devices

Vascular access ports are used widely in the administering of drugs for radiation oncology patients. Their dosimetric effect on radiation therapy delivery in photon beams has not been rigorously established. In this work, the effects on external beam fields when any of a variety of vascular access ports were included in the path of a high energy beam are studied. This study specifically identifies sidescatter and backscatter consequences as well as attenuation effects.
