    Abstract: Background: Radiotherapy effectiveness is drastically reduced in malignant tumors with low radiosensitivity. Combining hematoporphyrin derivatives (HPDs) with radiotherapy may have radiosensitizing effects, but radiosensitization mechanisms of HPDs in lung adenocarcinoma remains unclear. This study used in vitro experiments to verify whether HPDs c... Show More

    Abstract: Artificial Intelligence (AI) has become increasingly important to daily lives. AI has introduced several algorithms in Computed Tomography (CT) which allow for improved image quality at a low dose. These systems execute tasks that are normally done by a human (Radiographers). Hence Radiographers need to have adequate knowledge of these AI applicati... Show More
