itizers and the macromolecules. This was found to be effective at low light irradiances in malignant brain gliomas. Wednesday 10:30 a.m.

  • TRITIUM IN OFFICE REFRIGERATORS -- Dr. Jason Harris, jastharris@aol.com, discusses an investigation initiated to study the tritium accumulation in frost and ice buildup in refrigerators and freezers. Results of the investigation showed that tritium from office building humidity can accumulate as frost on the freezer units in small office refrigerators. Frost-free refrigerators were found to not have this problem. No tritium was detected in food or beverages stored in the refrigerators. Tuesday 9:00 a.m.

  • KNOW THE DOSE, KNOW THE TREATMENT -- The Armed Forces Radiobiology Research Institute has developed software that, with a minimal amount patient data, will output estimated radiation dose and treatment approach information for each specific patient. This presentation will be given by Dr. William Blakely, blakely@afrri.usuhs.mil. Tuesday 2:30 p.m.

  • RADIUM AND PENNSYLVANIA -- During a special series of presentations about at Pennsylvania's radiological history, Dr. Joel Lubenau, jl1016441@dejazzd.com, will talk about Marie Curie's visit to the United States in 1921 and her "gift" of one gram of radium from the Women of America (presented by President Harding) (Wednesday 9:30 a.m.). The series of presentations will conclude with four special movie showings beginning at 2:30 p.m. on the radium industry. These include "Radium," "The Rarest Substance Known - Radium," "Mining for Radium," and "The Newest Light on Earth."
