Given the continuous usage and spread of computed tomography (CT), the potential harmful effects and the radiation dose to the patient have become high interest topics among the scientific community. The main objective of this investigation was to modify existing three-dimensional (3D) voxel phantom models to resemble real patients as much as possi...

... value corresponds to the CTDI, which can be defined as the integral dose value in a slice [35]. The concept of CTDI is explained in Figure 2.2. The dose received from slice 1 from the scan of slice 2 is equal to the dose received by slice 2 from the scan of slice 1. C: The dose received from slice 1 from the scan of slice 3 is equal to the dose received by slice 3 from the scan of slice 1. D: ...

Using superconducting magnetic Wollaston prisms, high-resolution neutron Larmor diffraction has been implemented at the High-Flux Isotope Reactor of Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL), Tennesse, USA. This technique allows the inverse relationship between the achievable diffraction resolution and the usable neutron flux to be overcome. Instead of...

Although the historical and traditional structural interventions in urban water streams are increasingly challenged by the scientific community and civil society sectors, some Brazilian cities still insist on prioritizing this logic of artificiality in their political processes. The case of Belo Horizonte (MG) illustrates this perpetuation of polic...

Comprehensive utility-scale wake measurements from commercial wind plants are difficult to obtain. As a result, research in wind farm aerodynamics is often based on smaller-scale measurements and on numerical experiments. It is therefore crucial for the scientific community to understand how results compare across scales. In this work, three actuat...
