Safer, more accurate radiation therapy for expecting mothers
Date:12/18/2007

ational Cancer Institute, was presented in the article A boundary-representation method for designing whole-body dosimetry models: pregnant females at the ends of three gestational periods RPI-P3, -P6, and -P9, published in the most recent issue of the journal Physics in Medicine and Biology.

With the models complete, Xu and his team will share their data with other researchers investigating the same topic. Xu said it will likely be about one year before the models are verified and accepted by the medical community, and then integrated into computer software as a new standard for determining and administering radiation therapy to expecting mothers.
