Comparative Studies on Permanent Prostate Brachytherapy: PrePlan and Real-Time Transrectal Ultrasound Guided Iodine-125 Seed Implants at Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital, Ghana

CHAPTER ONE INTRODUCTION 1.1 Background Brachytherapy is a term used to describe the short distance treatment of cancer with radiation from small, encapsulated radionuclide sources. This type of treatment is given by placing sources directly into or near the volume to be treated. The dose is then delivered continuously, either over a short period of time (temporary implants) or over the lifetime of the source to a complete decay (permanent implants). Most common brachytherapy sources emit ph...

Assessment of Radiation Dose to Patients During Single Photon Emission Computed Tomography (Spect) 99mtc-Sestamibi Myocardial Perfusion Imaging (Mpi) In Niamey- Niger.

ABSTRACT Radiation absorbed dose for patients undergoing myocardial perfusion has been calculated for technetium-99m Hexakis-2-methoxy-2-methylpropyl-isonitrile (99mTcSestamibi) at the Nuclear Medicine Department of Abdou Moumouni University. Thirty patients were scanned and image quantification was achieved using MedisoInterViewXP® software. An activity of370 MBq (10 mCi) of 99mTc-Sestamibi was administered for stress and 1110 MBq (30 mCi) for rest. A 256 x 1024 matrix size and a speed of 2...

Anti-Ulcerative Effect Of Aqueous Extract Of Cucumis Melo On Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs (Nsaids) Induced Gastric Ulceration In Male Wistar Rats

ABSTRACTIbuprofen, a strong analgesic and an anti-inflammatory drug used over a long period caused side effects such as peptic ulcer and constipation. Honeydew melon has been shown to possess anti-secretory, antiulcer and angiogenic. Hence, this study investigated the anti-ulcer effect of aqueous extract of honeydew melon on ibuprofen induced gastric ulcer in male Wistar rats.Wistar rats (n=35,150-200g) were randomly divided into seven groups. They were treated as follows; I (control- distill...
