Abstract:Human eye is one of the most sensitive parts of the body when exposed to radiation effects. Since there is no barrier (such as skin) to protect the eye against the absorption of the external thermal waves, radiation can readily interact with cornea. On the other hand, lack of blood flow in the interior part of the eye makes it more vulnerable compared to other organs even in the case of weak heat interaction. Further, blood flow circulation alone cannot establish thermal equilibrium between the eye and body or… Show more
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
