Choreography-Specific Cross-Training and Conditioning Programs.
Abstract Because of increased choreographic demands, early specialization, multi-genre dancers, and high incidence of career-ending injuries, there is a need for enhanced training methodologies to address the unique needs of today's professional dancer. It is imperative for company directors, instructors, choreographers, and dance medicine practitioners to consider implementing the most specific conditioning and training programs to prepare their dancers to meet or exceed expectations without resultant injury. Quantifying effectiveness of choreography-specific training programs is an area for further research. The...

On-site Clinical Care for Professional Dance Companies.
Abstract Thirty years ago the introduction of on-site health care for professional dance companies was a novel concept and dance medicine clinicians often had limited on-site hours, restricted treatment space, and small budgets. Companies are now developing fully staffed on-site clinics and backstage care that provide a multidisciplinary approach to dancer health and wellness. On-site dance medicine programs focus on holistic dancer health and preventive care rather than just triage and rehabilitation. Best practice recommendations for care of professional dancer patients allow for streamlined patient care within ...

Nutritional Concerns for the Artistic Athlete.
Abstract Performing artists are similar to sports athletes, with repeated patterns of training and performing. This requires that artistic athletes manage the dynamic interaction between energy/nutrient/fluid utilization and provision to assure long, healthful, and successful careers. Although sports athletes have an abundance of science-based nutritional guidance available, there are few nutrition-focused resources available to artistic athletes, which can result in failure to optimally satisfy the artistic athlete's individual nutritional needs. The purpose of this article is to review common nutritional issues ...

Nutrition Periodization in Dancers.
This article aims to (1) introduce nutrition periodization and (2) provide recommendations for nutrition periodization in dancers. During preseason, dancers design, rehearse, and train. During in-season, dancers have one or more daily performances. During postseason, dancers rest and prepare for the next season. Nutrition periodization is the strategic and timed nutrient intake to meet varying seasonal energy demands. Overall, nutrition periodization can support dancers' training goals, enhance their performance, and support optimal recovery. PMID: 33198899 [PubMed - in process] (Source: Health Physics)

Dose Assessment Following a 238Pu-contaminated Wound Case with Chelation and Excision.
Abstract The urinary excretion and wound retention data collected after a Pu-contaminated wound were analyzed using Markov Chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) to obtain the posterior distribution of the intakes and doses. An empirical approach was used to model the effects of medical treatments (chelation and excision) on the reduction of doses. It was calculated that DTPA enhanced the urinary excretion, on average, by a factor of 17. The empirical analysis also allowed calculation of the efficacies of the medical treatments-excision and chelation averted approximately 76% and 5.5%, respectively, of the doses that would have...

Response to a Skin Puncture Contaminated with 238Pu at Los Alamos National Laboratory.
Abstract The three principal pathways for intakes of plutonium are ingestion, inhalation, and contaminated wounds. In August 2018, a glovebox worker at Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) sustained a puncture from a thread of a braided steel cable contaminated with Pu. The puncture produced no pain, no blood, and little or no visible mark. As a result, the potential for a contaminated wound was not immediately recognized, and a wound count was not conducted until elevated urine bioassay results were received 12 d after the incident. This paper discusses the circumstances of the incident, along with the medical r...

Development of a New Chelation Model: Bioassay Data Interpretation and Dose Assessment after Plutonium Intake via Wound and Treatment with DTPA.
Abstract The administration of chelation therapy to treat significant intakes of actinides, such as plutonium, affects the actinide's normal biokinetics. In particular, it enhances the actinide's rate of excretion, such that the standard biokinetic models cannot be applied directly to the chelation-affected bioassay data in order to estimate the intake and assess the radiation dose. The present study proposes a new chelation model that can be applied to the chelation-affected bioassay data after plutonium intake via wound and treatment with DTPA. In the proposed model, chelation is assumed to occur in the blood, l...

A phantom for testing Cone Beam CTs.
Abstract Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) scanners are becoming more common for dental and maxillofacial/head scanning, but performing image quality tests on these systems is difficult. There are quality assurance (QA) phantoms commercially available but they can be expensive, bulky and not optimised for CBCT imaging limits. Smaller phantoms often lack features that are recommended for testing CBCT systems. A custom made phantom can provide more useful test objects in a more convenient size and at a lower cost. The proposed phantom is called the "Karu" Cone Beam CT Phantom and is constructed with a 3...

A Potential Role for Excess Tissue Iron in Development of Cardiovascular Delayed Effects of Acute Radiation Exposure
Murine hematopoietic-acute radiation syndrome (H-ARS) survivors of total body radiation (TBI) have a significant loss of heart vessel endothelial cells, along with increased tissue iron, as early as 4 mo post-TBI. The goal of the current study was to determine the possible role for excess tissue iron in the loss of coronary artery endothelial cells. Experiments used the H-ARS mouse model with gamma radiation exposure of 853 cGy (LD50/30) and time points from 1 to 12 wk post-TBI. Serum iron was elevated at 1 wk post-TBI, peaked at 2 wk post-TBI, and returned to non-irradiated control values by 4 wk post-TBI. A similar trend...

Lack of Cellular Inflammation in a Non-human Primate Model of Radiation Nephropathy
Inflammation is commonly cited as a mechanism of delayed effects of acute radiation exposure (DEARE). Confirmation of its presence could provide significant insight to targeted use of treatments or mitigators of DEARE. We sought to quantify the presence of cellular inflammation in kidneys of non-human primates that developed acute and chronic kidney injury after a partial body irradiation exposure. We show herein that cellular inflammation is not found as a component of either acute or chronic kidney injury. Other mechanistic pathways of injury must be sought. (Source: Health Physics)
