Radiobiology also known as radiation biology , and uncommonly as actinobiology is a field of clinical and basic medical sciences that involves the study of the action of ionizing radiation on living things, especially health effects of radiation. Ionizing radiation is generally harmful and potentially lethal to living things but can have health benefits in radiation therapy for the treatment of cancer and thyrotoxicosis. Its most common impact is the induction of cancer with a latent period of years or decades after exposure. Controlled doses are used for medical imaging and radiotherapy. In general, ionizing radiation is harmful and potentially lethal to living beings but can have health benefits in radiation therapy for the treatment of cancer and thyrotoxicosis. Some effects of ionizing radiation on human health are stochastic , meaning that their probability of occurrence increases with dose, while the severity is independent of dose. Its most common impact is the stochastic induction of cancer with a latent period of years or decades after exposure.

The method offers a number of advantages over other NDE methods, but one of its disadvantages is the health risk associated with the radiation. Health effects can occur due to either long-term low level exposure or short-term high level exposure. The primary risk from occupational radiation exposure is an increased risk of cancer.
deterministic and stochastic effects of radiation
Absolute risk: the proportion of a population expected to get a disease over a specified time period. See also risk , relative risk. Absorbed dose: Animation the amount of energy deposited by ionizing radiation in a unit mass of tissue. Actinides: elements in the periodic table with atomic numbers from 90 to thorium to lawrencium ; i.
Video Clips. Stochastic Effects. Stochastic effects are those that occur by chance and consist primarily of cancer and genetic effects.
In radiation protection, dose limits are set to limit stochastic effects to an acceptable level, and to prevent deterministic effects completely. These effects generally do not occur below a certain threshold value. For adults, the committed effective dose is computed for a year period after intake, whereas for children it is computed for the period up to age 70 years. Deterministic effects or tissue reactions of ionising radiation are related directly to the absorbed radiation dose and the severity of the effect increases as the dose increases.
Deterministic effects describe a cause and effect relationship between ionizing radiation and certain side-effects. These effects depend on dose, dose rate, dose fractionation, irradiated volume and type of radiation linear energy transfer LET. Deterministic effects have a threshold below which the effect does not occur.
Сзади, перпендикулярно туннелю, начинался коридор, едва освещаемый красными лампочками, вмонтированными в пол. - Пойдемте, - позвал Бринкерхофф, помогая Сьюзан вылезти. Она шла следом за ним точно в тумане. Коридор, выложенный кафельными плитками, довольно круто спускался вниз, и Сьюзан держалась за перила, стараясь не отставать.
Если честно - да, - Не надо так, Сью, Ты меня оскорбляешь. Глаза Сьюзан сузились. Она терпеть не могла, когда он называл ее Сью. Вообще-то она ничего не имела против этого имени, но Хейл был единственным, кто его использовал, и это было ей неприятно. - Почему бы мне не помочь тебе? - предложил Хейл.
И у тебя нет кредитной карточки. - Есть, но отец ее заблокировал.
