X-Ray Laser Able to Snap Photos of Electrons Superman may make it seem easy, but it's actually difficult to create narrow, directed beams of X-rays. While visible-light lasers have been common for a decade as presentation pointers and cat toys, the first X-ray laser wasn't created until two years ago. Now a team of scientists is announcing today (June 7) that they've created a newer, smaller X-ray laser. It is the first model that fits on a table and doesn't require a miles-long particle accelerator to produce the X-ray beam.

Objectives of the Society for Radiological Protection - The Society for Radiological Protection - SRP The SRP was founded as a learned society in 1963. It became a registered charity in 1973 and regularly provides awards, student bursaries and scholarships to develop radiation protection professionals. The Society’s full objectives are listed below and in brief they are: To promote the science and art of radiation protection To disseminate knowledge and support relevant education To promote high professional standards to the public benefit. The ubiquitous nature of radiation uses (both ionising and non-ionising) requires our field of activity to cover safety aspects of radiation in medicine, industry, the nuclear power cycle, education and research. There are also cross cutting issues such as regulatory control, accidents, prevention of terrorism and emergency response.

by Prof. (Univ. Cairo) Ahmed T Hadidi Onlay Island Flap The Onlay Island Flap is ideal for patients with proximal hypospadias without deep Chordee. According to the author experience, most patients with proximal hypospadias have deep chordee that necessitates excision. However, recently, many surgeons prefer to perform dorsal placation if the chordee is less than 30o after skin degloving and preserve the urethral plate. Operative steps The tip of the neo-meatus is identified. The Human Brain Atlas at Michigan State University Keith D. Sudheimer, Brian M. Winn, Garrett M. Kerndt, Jay M.
