    Abstract: There is a serious, and growing, concern about the increased risk of the emergence of a secondary cancer, radio-induced, associated with radiotherapy treatments. To assess the radiation doses to organs outside the target volume, in this work, several computational exposure scenarios were modelled, based on Monte Carlo simulation (MCNPX code). A Varian 2100c accelerator, and a female virtual anthropomorphic phantom were used, in a simulated treatment of cervical cancer. The determination of the dispersed dose would be important for assessing the risk in different organs or tissues. Four treatment fields were applied, varying the gantry angle. It was possible to observe that the conversion factors for equivalent dose were higher for the AP projection. For the RLAT and LLAT projections, the results were similar, fact that may be attributed to the symmetrical distributions of the organs in relation to the radiation source. The results presented in this work showed that the computational exposure scenario provides a versatile and accurate tool to estimate in a ready way the absorbed doses during a cervical treatment.

Dose estimate for cone beam CT equipment protocols using Monte Carlo simulation in computational adult anthropomorphic phantoms. Radiation Physics and Chemistry, v. 155, SI, p. 252-259, 2019. DOI: 10.1016/j.radphyschem.2018.06.038

    Abstract: Cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) has become essential for dental diagnoses in the last decade. This is supported by its low cost and low doses, when compared to medical CT. Following this increase in CBCT procedures, it is necessary to ensure the image quality within low radiation doses to the patients. This is an especially difficult challenge in CBCT, given the number of equipment models (more than 50), radiographic techniques that may be employed, and technical information not available to the users by the manufacturers. The objective of this study was to estimate the cancer risk, effective and absorbed doses in tissues and organs for CBCT protocols intended for dental use. Monte Carlo (MC) simulations were used to estimate these quantities in tissues and organs with radiological importance, as those suggested by the International Commission of Radiological Protection (ICPR) report ICRP 103. Five different fields of view (FOV) were simulated to i-Cat Classic CBCT, using the MCNPX code. The virtual anthropomorphic phantoms FASH3 (Female Adult MeSH) and MASH3 (Male Adult MeSH) were also used. The effective dose estimative was in the range 75.15–142.20 μSv. The largest contribution to the effective dose was from the salivary glands (17%), thyroid (27%) and remainder tissues (28%). The results of this work showed that the effective and absorbed doses in tissues/organs vary according to the FOV, exposure parameters, and the positioning of the beam, relative to the radiosensitive organs. Furthermore, for the same exposure conditions, women can exceed the total risk of cancer by 26–34%, when compared to men.

    Abstract: A very common type of cancer among women is the breast cancer. The treatment choice depends, among several factors, on the clinical stage of the disease and the age. One way to treat breast cancer is the permanent breast seed implant, with Iodine-125 (125I). Since they present some advantages: possibility to treat solid tumors, near the tumor site, induction of little trauma and strong lethality to cancer cells. In Brazil, a new 125I seed was developed at the Instituto de Pesquisas Energéticas e Nucleares to be applied in brachytherapy. Given the large number of women diagnosed with breast cancer, in this work, the dose determination in organs and tissues was undertaken, considering this new seed and a commercial, Amersham 6711-Oncoseed®, employing the Monte Carlo method. Moreover, for a better understanding of the radiation doses delivered to different patients, the breast volumes were modified. For this purpose, the MCNPX Monte Carlo code was utilized coupled with female virtual anthropomorphic phantoms. The results pointed out the highest dose values for the breast and skin. Furthermore, the dose results for both types of seeds were very similar.

Dosimetric evaluation of individuals to 238U series, 232Th series and 40K radionuclides present in Brazilian ornamental rocks using computational simulation. Ecotoxicology and Environmental Safety, v. 173, p. 401-410, 2019. DOI: 10.1016/j.ecoenv.2019.02.038

    Abstract: Granites are widely used in construction and they may be potential sources of ionizing radiation, due to the presence of radionuclides such as 40K and decay products from 238U series and 232Th series. These radionuclides occur in the minerals constituting the rocks. To evaluate the doses in humans exposed to 40K, and decay products from 238U series and 232Th series radiation, a room with dimensions of 4.0 × 5.0 × 2.8m3, with uniformly distributed radiation source on the floor of granitic rocks, was computationally modeled. Adult individuals were represented in the virtual scenario by two virtual anthropomorphic phantoms FASH3 and MASH3, incorporated simultaneously in the software MCNPX 2.7.0. The mean energy deposited on each organ and tissue of FASH3 and MASH3 phantoms was determined using the MCNPX F6 tally (MeV/g/particle), while the photon flux within the room was calculated with the MCNPX F4 tally (MeV/cm2/particle). The organs that obtained the highest conversion coefficients CC[HT] (Sv/Gy) were the red bone marrow (0.94), skin (0.90), breast (0.81) and bladder (0.73) for the FASH3; skin (0.89), gonads (0.88), breast (0.79) and bladder (0.70) for the MASH3. The simulated air absorbed dose rates varied between 23.4 (11%) and 25.8 (12%) nGy/h, and the annual dose rates were 0.10 (6%) and 0.11 (6%) mSv/year. These results presented acceptable statistical uncertainties and they are in agreement with the literature. Fluency of photons pointed to the central region of the room floor as the place of greatest exposure. The results showed that the organs closer to the radiation source had the highest deposited energy values. Based on the annual effective dose data obtained, it was possible to note that the values are within the literature. We believe that the methodology used will allow the investigation of any ornamental material that emits natural radiation.

Estimation of conversion coefficients for absorbed and effective doses for pediatric CT examinations in two different PET/CT scanners. Radiation Physics and Chemistry, v. 155, SI, p. 9-16, 2019. DOI: 10.1016/j.radphyschem.2018.07.009

    Abstract: Normally, during medical procedures, special attention must be given to pediatric patients when compared to adults. This is specially relevant during procedures involving ionizing radiation, as CT scans, given that children are considerably more sensitive to radiation induced stochastic effects than adults. In order to investigate the radiation doses on radiosensitive organs of pediatric patients, undergoing head, chest and abdomen CT procedures, numerical dosimetry was employed in this work. The novelty is the use of a new set of pediatric virtual anthropomorphic phantoms, coupled with Monte Carlo simulation, to determine the conversion coefficients for absorbed and effective doses. Two CT equipment were simulated, taking into account the main characteristics of those commercially available. The results were converted to conversion coefficients (mGy/100 mA) for several organs and tissues, and the highest values were obtained for the newborn phantom. This numerical approach employed a new and reliable technique for pediatric CT dosimetry.

    Abstract: In the event of an environmental contamination with radioactive materials, one of the most dangerous materials is 137Cs. In order to evaluate the radiation doses involved in an environmental contamination of soil, with 137Cs, we carried out a computational dosimetric study. We determined the radiation conversion coefficients (CC) for effective (E) and equivalent (H T) doses, using a male and a female anthropomorphic phantoms. These phantoms were coupled with the MCNPX (2.7.0) Monte Carlo simulation software, for three different types of soil. The highest CC[H T] values were for the gonads and skin (male) and bone marrow and skin (female). We found no difference for the different types of soil.

Monte Carlo dosimetric evaluation in PET exams for patients with different BMI and heights. Radiation Physics and Chemistry, v. 151, p. 36-41, 2018. DOI: 10.1016/j.radphyschem.2018.05.011

    Abstract: In recent years, positron emission tomography (PET), associated with multi-detector computed tomography (MDCT), has become a diagnostic technique widely disseminated to evaluate various malignant tumors and other diseases. However, during PET/CT examinations, the doses of ionizing radiation experienced by the internal organs of the patients due to 18F are unknown, and may be substantial. The aim of this study was to determine a set of S values derived from the 18F-FDG and to use them to determine the absorbed and effective doses of 8 different virtual anthropomorphic phantoms (4 of each gender). These phantoms have different Body Mass Index (BMI), to represent different anatomical characteristics of patients examined in PET. The results of the S values were calculated using the MCNPX (2.7.0) Monte Carlo code. These results were compared to the ICRP 106 reference values, obtained with mathematical anthropomorphic phantoms (MIRD model). Our results of the S values were higher than those obtained and presented at the ICRP 106, mainly due to the differences between the phantoms. The differences between the relative distances of the organs and the chemical and physical characteristics of the phantoms used in this study, in relation to mathematical model, reflected the use of a detailed set of phantoms. Therefore, the results presented in this study provide accurate and reliable data for internal dose calculations for patients undergoing PET examinations.

Physica Medica - European Journal of Medical Physics, v. 45, p. 35-43, 2018. DOI: 10.1016/j.ejmp.2017.11.016

    Abstract: In this study we evaluated the occupational exposures during an abdominal fluoroscopically guided interventional radiology procedure. We investigated the relation between the Body Mass Index (BMI), of the patient, and the conversion coefficient values (CC) for a set of dosimetric quantities, used to assess the exposure risks of medical radiation workers. The study was performed using a set of male and female virtual anthropomorphic phantoms, of different body weights and sizes. In addition to these phantoms, a female and a male phantom, named FASH3 and MASH3 (reference virtual anthropomorphic phantoms), were also used to represent the medical radiation workers. The CC values, obtained as a function of the dose area product, were calculated for 87 exposure scenarios. In each exposure scenario, three phantoms, implemented in the MCNPX 2.7.0 code, were simultaneously used. These phantoms were utilized to represent a patient and medical radiation workers. The results showed that increasing the BMI of the patient, adjusted for each patient protocol, the CC values for medical radiation workers decrease. It is important to note that these results were obtained with fixed exposure parameters.

Sub-15 nm CeO2 nanowires as an efficient nonnoble metal catalyst in the room-temperature oxidation of aniline. Catalysis Science and Technology, v. 8, n. 7, p. 1828-1839, 2018. DOI: 10.1039/c7cy02402a

    Abstract: We described herein the facile synthesis of sub-15 nm CeO2 nanowires based on a hydrothermal method without the use of any capping/stabilizing agent, in which an oriented attachment mechanism took place during the CeO2 nanowire formation. The synthesis of sub-15 nm CeO2 nanowires could be achieved on relatively large scales (∼2.6 grams of nanowires per batch), in high yields (>94%), and at low cost. To date, there are only a limited number of successful attempts towards the synthesis of CeO2 nanowires with such small diameters, and the reported protocols are typically limited to low amounts. The nanowires displayed uniform shapes and sizes, high surface areas, an increased number of oxygen defects sites, and a high proportion of Ce3+/Ce4+ surface species. These features make them promising candidates for oxidation reactions. To this end, we employed the selective oxidation of aniline as a model transformation. The sub-15 nm CeO2 nanowires catalyzed the selective synthesis of nitrosobenzene (up to 98% selectivity) from aniline at room temperature using H2O2 as the oxidant. The effect of solvent and temperature during the catalytic reaction was investigated. We found that such parameters played an important role in the control of the selectivity. The improved catalytic activities observed for the sub-15 nm nanowires could be explained by: i) the uniform morphology with a typical dimension of 11 ± 2 nm in width, which provides higher specific surface areas relative to those of conventional catalysts; ii) the significant concentration of oxygen vacancies and high proportion of Ce3+/Ce4+ species at the surface that represent highly active sites towards oxidation reactions; iii) the crystal growth along the (110) highly catalytically active crystallographic directions, and iv) the mesoporous surface which is easily accessible by liquid substrates. The results reported herein demonstrated high activities under ambient conditions, provided novel insights into selectivities, and may inspire novel metal oxide-based catalysts with desired performances.

In: ABEN (Ed.) INTERNATIONAL NUCLEAR ATLANTIC CONFERENCE, October 21-25, 2019, Santos, SP. Proceedings... Rio de Janeiro, 2019. p. 186-191.

    Abstract: The scattered radiation from interventional procedures is an important source of radiological risk for the medical staff. Considering all affected organs, the eye lens are among the most critical organs. As pointed out by several studies, even for low radiation doses, the appearance of cataract may occur. Considering this scenario, the radiation doses to the eye lens were determined using three different lead eyewear models commonly employed. The fluoroscopist was represented by an adult virtual anthropomorphic phantom (MASH3), coupled to the Monte Carlo code MCNP6.1™, in a typical cardiac interventional radiology procedure. The eyewear had 0.5 mmPb each, and the evaluation was carried out for four different beam angulations (PA, LAO90, LAO65 e RAO65), 80 kVp of tube voltage and HVL of 4 mmAl. The results pointed out that the shielding efficiency has a strong dependence on the eyewear type utilized, which may be very useful for the decision-making during the acquisition of such equipments.
