The problem of enabling scientist users to submit jobs to grid computing environments will eventually limit the usability of grids. The eMinerals project has tackled this problem by developing the "my_condor_submit" (MCS) tool, which provides a simple scriptable interface to Globus, a flexible interaction with the Storage Resource Broker, metascheduling with load balancing within a grid environment, and automatic metadata harvesting. This paper provides an overview of MCS together with some use

Patient cumulative radiation exposure in interventional cardiology

M.-O. Bernier, S. Jacob, C. Maccia, O. Bar, O. Catelinois, D. Blanchard, D. Laurier
2012 Radioprotection - Revue de la Societé Francaise de Radioprotection  
Interventional cardiology procedures can involve potentially high doses of radiation to the patients. Stochastic effects of ionising radiation -radiation-induced cancers in the long term -may occur. We analysed clinical characteristics and dosimetric data in a population of patients undergoing interventional cardiology. In all, 1 591 patients who had undergone coronarography and/or angioplasty in the course of a year at the Saint-Gatien Clinic in Tours (France) were included. Information on

The median age of patients was 70 years. Their median cumulative dosearea product value was 48.4 Gy.cm 2 for the whole year and the median effective dose was 9.7 mSv. The median organ doses were 41 mGy for the lung, 31 mGy for the oesophagus, 10 mGy for the bone marrow and 4 mGy for the breast. Levels of doses close to the heart appear to be rather high in the case of repeated interventional cardiology procedures. Clinical characteristics should be taken into account when planning epidemiological studies on potential radiation-induced cancers.

Interventional cardiology irradiation: clinical and dosimetric aspects of treated population

M.-O. Bernier, S. Jacob, C. Maccia, O. Bar, O. Catelinois, D. Blanchard, D. Laurier
2008 Radioprotection - Revue de la Societé Francaise de Radioprotection  
Context: Minimally invasive interventional cardiology procedures (ICP) have been widely used over the last 10 years, but can involve potentially high radiation doses to the patients. Although deterministic effects of ionising radiation are likely to occur in that field, stochastic effects, in particular radiation-induced cancers, have never been investigated in a population of adult patients. As a first step toward such investigation, a study was conducted with the view of characterizing

Material and methods: A total of 1,591 patients who underwent 1 to 5 ICP, either coronarography and/or angioplasty, during the year 2005, at the Saint-Gatien Clinic in Tours (France), were included. Individual clinical characteristics were registered, dose-area product (DAP) values were recorded and patients' organ doses to lung, oesophagus, bone marrow and breast were assessed by a mathematical modelling. A logistic regression to test associations between high doses and clinical and technical factors was used. Results: Mean age of patients was 68 years. More than 60% of them had hypertension, 60% hypercholesterolemia and 25% diabetes. One patient out of three was smoker or ex-smoker, with higher percentage of patients aged less than 60 years. As for dosimetry, patient mean cumulative DAP value was 78.9 Gy.cm 2 and the mean effective dose was 15.8 mSv. The corresponding estimated mean organ doses were: 62.3 mGy for lung, 54.9 mGy for oesophagus, 17.0 mGy for bone marrow and 5.6 mGy for breast. Based on univariate analysis, high DAP values (> 200 Gy.cm 2 ) were significantly associated with gender, high body mass index, diabetes, hypertension, previous heart bypass, previous myocardial infarction, number of ICP, type of ICP (coronarography and/or angioplasty) and operator. In multivariate analysis, some of these factors remained significant: body mass index (OR=1.16, 95%CI=[1.10-1.21]), previous heart bypass (OR=3.13 [2.14-6.32]) and increased number of ). Odds ratios were even higher when comparing coronary angioplasties to coronarographies (OR=20.72 [7.77-55.27]). Operator effect was also observed with an increased risk for one operator among the three others (OR=1.91 [1.15-3.18]). Conclusion: Radiation doses received by patients undergoing ICP can widely vary according to clinical characteristics but also technical characteristics of procedures. 66
