X-Ray Radiation is a Safe and Beneficial Treatment for Cannabis

X-Ray has been used for many years in the agricultural industry, ensuring products are safe for human consumption, With the legalization of cannabis becoming more prevalent, states are setting regulations for the microbial and bacteria count that is inherent in most plants, safeguarding the population against harmful ingestion. Planning for a step to "clean" the plants is often an afterthought and can cost cultivators time, reputation and profit.

Assessing the Accuracy of Bioluminescence Image-Guided Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy of Orthotopic Pancreatic Tumors Using a Small Animal Irradiator

Stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) has shown promising results in the treatment of pancreatic cancer and other solid tumors. However, wide adoption of SBRT remains limited largely due to uncertainty about the treatment’s optimal fractionation schedules to elicit maximal tumor response while limiting the dose to adjacent structures.
