First, my book recommendations for the core third-year clerkships can be found here. What follows are “best” book recommendations geared for MS3/MS4 elective rotations and sub-internships (“sub-i’s”), including most of the surgical and medical subspecialties. Some of these books are geared for medical students; others more for residents. Radiation is energy in the form of waves of particles. There are two forms of radiation – non-ionizing and ionizing – which will be discussed in sections and , respectively. Non-ionizing radiation. Non-ionizing radiation has less energy than ionizing radiation; it does not possess enough energy to.)File Size: 1MB.

X-rays, gamma rays, and other forms of ionizing radiation are used to diagnose and treat some medical conditions.

This can be in the form of radiation that penetrates from outside the body, or radioactive particles that are swallowed or inserted into the body.

Certain types of imaging tests, such as x-rays, CT scans, and nuclear medicine tests. Medical Uses. There are many uses of radiation in medicine. The most well known is using x rays to see whether bones are broken.

The broad area of x-ray use is called radiology. Within radiology, we find more specialized areas like mammography, computerized tomography (CT), and nuclear medicine (the specialty where radioactive material is usually injected into the patient).

Written at the request from the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC), Radiation in Medicine reviews the regulation of ionizing radiation in medicine, focusing on the NRC's Medical Use Program, which governs the use of reactor-generated byproduct materials.

Radiation therapy or radiotherapy, often abbreviated RT, RTx, or XRT, is a therapy using ionizing radiation, generally as part of cancer treatment to control or kill malignant cells and normally delivered by a linear ion therapy may be curative in a number of types of cancer if they are localized to one area of the body.

It may also be used as part of adjuvant therapy, to ICDPCS: D. Radiation dose from nuclear medicine procedures depends on the radiopharmaceutical, the administered activity, and individual patient metabolism.
