A statistical framework for radiation dose estimation with uncertainty quantification from the γ-H2AX assay
(PLoS ONE, 2018-11-28)
Over the last decade, the γ–H2AX focus assay, which exploits the phosphorylation of the H2AX histone following DNA double–strand–breaks, has made considerable progress towards acceptance as a reliable biomarker for exposure ...
Cancer incidence among children and young adults who have undergone x-ray guided cardiac catheterization procedures
(European Journal of Epidemiology, 2018-01-18)
Children and young adults with heart disease appear to be at increased risk of developing cancer, although the reasons for this are unclear. A cohort of 11,270 individuals, who underwent cardiac catheterizations while aged ...
An exact goodness-of-fit test based on the occupancy problems to study zero-inflation and zero-deflation in biological dosimetry data
(Radiation Protection Dosimetry, 2018-01-12)
The goal in biological dosimetry is to estimate the dose of radiation that a suspected irradiated individual has received. For that, the analysis of aberrations (most commonly dicentric chromosome aberrations) in scored ...
Uncertainty on radiation doses estimated by biological and retrospective physical methods
(Radiation Protection Dosimetry, 2017-09-18)
Biological and physical retrospective dosimetry are recognised as key techniques to provide individual estimates of dose following unplanned exposures to ionising radiation. Whilst there has been a relatively large amount ...
