Dear D. North,
MS, DABR, Nice Credentials....
Enjoy your vacation.
Medical Physics is tough --- how many patients do you do dose
planning for in a day???
Quite a few, I'll bet. Sure, you are well paid also.
Maybe you should apply for an HP job at Brookhaven. Kahnhauser and
the other guys are
pretty good to work for. Benefits are good there. HP
professionals at BNL get 18 to 24 days
vacation per year, and three days annual leave. The pension plan
used to be vested after
90 days of work. Plus there are Holidays off. Long Island is
Oh, many of the HP Techs at BNL (Super Techs) at Brookhaven
have Masters degrees
also. Being a Tech there is pretty good also.
If you could get a job in the BNL Medical Division/Department,
you could work on
Boron Neutron Capture Therapy and things like that. Genome
Please search the radsafe archives for my many relevant
HP/Radiation Safety posts.

Subj: [ RadSafe ] More Medical News
From: _jpreisig at aol.com_ (mailto:jpreisig at aol.com) .
This is off topic, but medically important so here it comes.
Google news has an item today about Alzheimer's treatment
using some chemical.
See the news item for details. The chemical clears plaques
associated with Alzheimers
from the brains of mice. Nice work being done here.
Maybe someday Medical Doctors will do brain bypasses (like
Heart bypasses but
more difficult/complex????). Then bioengineer a new skull top to
allow extra room in the
area of the brain where the surgery occurred????
I doubt a lung body burden (Am, Pu, U etc.) would be
responsible for Alzheimers
disease plaques. Is Parkinson's disease similar to Alzheimers???
--- plaques blocking
brain blood vessels cause oxygen loss in the brain. As the result
of this brain tissue and nerves
in the brain start to die. Thinking is affected and also body motor
in bodily tremors???).
Have a good weekend!!!! Regards, Joseph R. (Joe) Preisig, PhD
