I'm a third year student contemplating doing a year of research before fourth year. I've done a lot of research in nuclear medicine in my first two years, and now I have a great opportunity to set up a collaborative project with radiation oncology looking at the radioprotective properties of synthetic nanoparticles in mice. Rather than going through the details of the project, I wanted to use my query as an example of how to find answers to similar questions online (in order to be helpful to others reading this forum). My question is: how could the radioprotective properties of a pre-EBRT treatment be measured in mice? (with an orthovoltage machine?)

I'm not expecting an answer to my specific question. But if anyone has resources online that would have that kind of rad onc basic science information, it would be much appreciated. Thanks a lot. :thumbup:
