Aeroradioactivity Survey and Areal Geology of Parts of Southeastern New York and Southern New England (ARMS-I)

Description: Report concerning "[a]n airborne gamma-radiation survey of Connecticut, Rhode Island, and parts of New York, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and Vermont" (p. 5) made between 1958 and 1960 that indicated that a broad range of radioactivity exists in those areas depending on the type of bedrock. Correlations are drawn between this radioactivity and the geology of the region.

Multipurpose scintillation camera

Description: The scintillation camera is a nonscanning instrument for displaying the distribution of radioactive isotopes. It can be used, for example, to show abnormalities in the thyroid gland with I-131, the size, shape and location of kidneys with Hg-203 Neohydrin or to locate brain tumors either with Hg-203 Neohydrin or with the new positron emitting agent, Ga-68 EDTA. For many applications, the scintillation camera has higher sensitivity than conventional isotope scanners, and will produce pictures in less time or with a smaller quantity of isotope present. Alternatively, it produces better pictures if the conventional dosage and exposure factors are retained. Because of the short exposure time, and because the scintillation camera is continuously sensitive to all areas within its field of view, it is well adapted to taking rapid sequences of still pictures or time-lapse motion pictures of subjects in which the distribution of radioactivity is changing. For example, time lapse pictures have been taken showing I-131 Rose Bengal Bengal being excreted from the liver of children with liver disease and of I-131 hippuran going through the kidneys of patients suspected of kidney disease.

Increasing the capacity of the Tory II-C Side Support System

Description: The Tory II-C lateral suspension has been designed for 4 g`s of lateral acceleration of the duct. Calculations and model tests indicate that this requirement has been met or exceeded. In order to have a more realistic model to test, Tory II-C springs are going to be fitted around the full scale core slice which was previously built up. Instrumented accelerations of this assembly should give the most direct demonstration that is possible of the response of the system to flight. This memorandum discusses, knowing the capabilities of the present system, the design changes necessary to suit different maximum accelerations by increasing the capacity of the Tory II-C side support system.
