It was reported that exposure to dental diagnostic X-rays in oral, dental and maxillofacial care increases the risk of benign tumors (meningioma), but not of malignant brain tumors (glioma). Malignant gliomas grow more rapidly. Meningioma, a benign

Identifying doses in commercial liquid drugs sterilized by ionizing radiation

Drug sterilization with ionizing radiation, such as gamma-radiation using doses up to 25 kGy is a well-established technology, which can adequately eliminate bacteria by breaking down their DNA. This method is gaining ground due to its numerous
