Drug Screening Assays, Antitumor definition: Methods of investigating the effectiveness of anticancer cytotoxic drugs and biologic inhibitors. These include in vitro cell-kill models and cytostatic dye exclusion tests as well as in vivo measurement of tumor growth parameters in laboratory animals.
Substance Abuse Detection definition: Detection of drugs that have been abused, overused, or misused, including legal and illegal drugs. Urine screening is the usual method of detection.
Drug Test definition: A laboratory test of biological material such as blood, urine, hair, saliva or sweat, used to detect the presence of a drug or its metabolites with in the body.
drug detection definition: procedures to detect the presence of drugs or their side products in blood, urine, breath, or other biological samples; do not confuse with DRUG SCREENING/EVALUATION.
X-Ray Intensifying Screens definition: Screens which absorb the energy in the x-ray beam that has penetrated the patient and convert this energy into a light pattern which has as nearly as possible the same information as the original x-ray beam. The more light a screen produces for a given input of x-radiation, the less x-ray exposure and thus shorter exposure time are needed to expose the film. In most film-screen systems, the film is sandwiched between two screens in a cassette so that the emulsion on each side is exposed to the light from its contiguous screen.
SCREEN, INTENSIFYING, RADIOGRAPHIC definition: A radiographic intensifying screen is a device that is a thin radiolucent sheet coated with a luminescent material that transforms incident X-ray photons into visible light and intended for medical purposes to expose radiographic film.
Screens, X-Ray Film Cassette definition: Screens designed to intensify the latent image on x-ray films used in radiography. They typically consist of a thin sheet of celluloid or other radiolucent material, coated on one side with a thin layer of a suspension of dehydrated x-ray excitable phosphors, which is mounted in the cassette, its coated surface being in close contact with the film. The action of x-rays on phosphors causes them to glow with a visible light for a very short time, thus intensifying the generation of the latent image on the film through the added action of light and reducing the patient exposure to x-rays by approximately 10 to 40 times.
Screens, Anesthesia definition: Barriers designed to separate the sterile surgical site and the area in which the anesthesiologists and related staff work during a surgical procedure. There are various designs available; different screens are designed for use in specific procedures. Typically, anesthesia screens include a specific type of screen holder and a drape or other type of barrier.
Screens, Bedside definition: Barriers designed to conceal the bed or examination table during medical procedures or provide privacy (e.g., in a semi-private patient room).
