Radioisotopes Research in Radiology

Sophomore (College 2nd year) ・Biology ・APA ・2 Sources

Radiocarbon courting is a scientific method used to estimate the age of biological natural materials that age up to fifty thousand years. To make a clear estimate of the age of an organic cloth that existed years ago, scientists tend to identify the presence of carbo-14 issue and burns a small content of a piece of carbon-14 into carbon dioxide gas. The electrons that will be emitted by the decaying carbon-14 will be detected by means of the radiation counters, and slowly the electrons will turn into nitrogen (Higham, 14). From this point, a comparison between the carbon-14 will be made with carbon-12. Since the ration between carbon-14 and carbon-12 is the identical with all living things, the amount of carbon-14 will be measured by its half-life due to its decaying nature, while carbon-12 will remain stable. By the estimation of the ratio, the age of the organism will be identified.

Radioisotopes could also be used in medical treatment and conducting diagnosis in the medical field. Radioisotopes could be used in identifying certain types of illnesses, especially cancerous tumors (Calkins, 4). Important elements such as cobalt-60 and cesium-137 may be used to minimize the size of the tumors that are in the bodies of the patients who have cancer. In addition, Cobalt-60 could also be used to sterilize the medical tools and instruments used in surgeries. On the other hand, the radioisotopes could also be used to conduct diagnostic tests. For instance, diagnosis of the lung functionality could be used by incorporating xenon-133 to examine the malfunctions of ventilations in the lungs. In addition, other areas of hematology could also be analyzed using radioisotopes.

First time when I placed an order with you, I just lacked time to do all the homework and it was a lot going on in my family. But today I’m doing it sometimes just for fun – I really enjoy communicating with your Customer Support members and just letting myself being a bit lazy

My GPA is 4.0 and I’ve always been doing everything myself, but there is a class which I was about to fail thus my GPA would decrease first time in so many years. I ordered few assignments to be completed with and you did a great job! Thanks to you I still remain one of the best students on campus.

I am not used to such services and I usually write all the papers by myself. But this time I got in a very difficult situation and had to order my paper on this website. To my surprise it appeared to be quite good. Thank you, it is really nice service. Think I'll get back to you soon!

I am on my maternity leave now, so I spend a lot of time at home taking care of my little son. I’ve decided to get one more higher education degree while I’m spending so much time at home and applied for distance learning in one online college. But caring a baby takes even more time then I excepted so I’m the way too busy to write the complicated masters level research works, but is so-so-so cool! Thank you for that you exist! I don’t know what I would do without you all!
