A temporary surface storage system that was studied by the U.S. Department of Energy as a potential part of an integrated system of disposing of spent nuclear fuel. Neutron: A subatomic particle, with no electrical charge, that appears in the nucleus of all atoms except hydrogen. Non-Ionizing Radiation: Low energy radiation such as radio and television waves. Nuclear Radiation: Ionizing radiation ( alpha, beta, and gamma) originating in the nuclei of radioactive atoms.
Magnetic resonance spectroscopy. A scanning technique that examines the atoms hydrogen and phosphorus to glean information about chemical activity in small areas of the brain.
abbreviation for Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy, produces a characteristic spectrum of a specific nuclei
MAGNETIC RESONANCE SPECTROSCOPY. an MR technique wherein a sample is placed in a strong, very uniform, magnetic field, and stimulated with RF electromagnetic energy. If the field is uniform over the volume of the sample, "similar" nuclei will contribute a particular frequency component to the detected response signal irrespective of their individual positions in the sample. Since nuclei of different elements resonate at different frequencies, each element in the sample contributes a different frequency component. A chemical analysis can then be conducted by analyzing the MR response signal into its frequency components.
Magnetic resonance spectroscopy. A technological tool similar to magnetic resonance imaging but providing chemical rather than anatomical information. MRS is most useful when evaluating trials of new treatments by measuring disease severity and progression.
Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy. A study similar to conventional MRI that measures chemical compounds within the brain.
Magnetic resonance spectroscopy. Gives information of chemical composition. Prostate cancer demonstrates low citrate and high choline levels.
