X- Ray Hysterosalphingography: The Most Painful Part in the Nigerian woman

ABS1R4CT Background. Hysterosalphingography (HSG) despite the accompanying pain still remains relevant in gynaecological practice. For effective analgesia. it is important to identify the most painful step of this procedure. Numerical Rating Scale (NRS) and the Categorical Pain Scale (CPS) were used to identify the most painful step of HSG procedure and to find out if age. parity and the degree of infertility affect pain perception in this group of patients. Patients and Methodology: Nin...


Abstract It has been established that radionuclides accumulates during mining and mineral ore processing, leaching into water bodies and thus increases naturally occuring radioactive materials (NORM) concentration levels. In this work, theoretical and experimental methods have been used to study radionuclides transport and fate in groundwater systems at the Newmont Akyem Goldmine in the Eastern Region of Ghana. Radiation doses from radionuclides in groundwater have been modeled by consid...

Performance Evaluation of the Food and Environmental Monitoring Radio Analytical Laboratory in Ghana

ABSTRACT Since the establishment of the Radiation Protection Institute’s Food and Environmental Laboratory in 1988, there has never been any thorough evaluation of the activities of the facility to provide assurance of the quality of analytical results produce by the laboratory. The objective of this study, therefore, was to assess the performance level of the Food and Environmental monitoring laboratory with respect to the requirements for a standard analytical laboratory (IAEA, 1989...
