About PROTON THERAPY
Proton therapy is suitable for tumors that need higher radiation doses.
In some cases, the ability to provide higher doses has provided better outcomes for individuals than with conventional radiotherapy.
It has been successful in treating:
tumors in the eye
tumors alongside the spinal column
Fewer side effects
Proton therapy carries a lower risk of undes
This book is about the basics of CT Scanner, an X-ray image made using a form of tomography in which a computer controls the motion of the X-ray source and detectors, processes the data, and produces the image.
Human body consists of various essential elements such as Na+,Cl-, K+, Li+ to maintain Homeostasis of human body. These elements play a major role in regulating the working and functioning of various organs in the human body. Our Heart and Nerve cells also regulate impulses through the proper conduction of stimulus by the action of these essential elements. Because it functions as a regulatory agency for the action potential conduction in both heart and nerve
This book is all about the
As the name itself indicates the synonym of phototherapy is PHOTO – light, and THERAPY – treatment. Phototherapy is also classically known as light therapy or heliotherapy. The treatment consists of the procedure of the exposition of the light sources like the sunlight, halogen light, fluorescent light, ultraviolet radiation, and LED (Light Emitting Diode) as per the director physicians for the required amount of
This manuscript is all about the Oxygen Concentrator definition: A POC is a medical device that helps individuals with a low level of blood oxygen. You can plug them into an electrical outlet or power them by a battery. If the battery is spent, you’ll need to charge it back up by plugging it into the electrical outlet. Many of the portable oxygen concentrators also come with an adapter so you can use your device while driving.
This manuscript is all about an X-ray, or X-radiation is a penetrating form of high-energy electromagnetic radiation. Most X-rays have a wavelength ranging from 10 picometers to 10 nanometers, corresponding to frequencies in the range 30 petahertz to 30 exahertz (3×1016 Hz to 3×1019 Hz) and energies in the range 124 eV to 124 keV.
This manuscript is all about the slit lamp is a microscope with a bright light used during an eye exam.
