Abstract

Severity scoring systems for ionizing radiation-induced gastrointestinal injury have been used in animal radiation models, human studies involving the use of radiation therapy, and radiation accidents. Various radiation exposure scenarios (i.e., total body irradiation, total abdominal irradiation, etc.) have been used to investigate ionizing radiation-induced gastrointestinal injury. These radiation-induced GI severity scoring systems are based on clinical signs and symptoms and gastrointestinal-specific biomarkers (i.e., citrulline, etc.). In addition, the time course for radiation-induced changes in blood citrulline levels were compared across various animal (i.e., mice, minipigs, Rhesus Macaque, etc.) and human model systems. A worksheet tool was developed to prioritize individuals with severe life-threatening gastrointestinal acute radiation syndrome, based on the design of the Exposure and Symptom Tool addressing hematopoietic acute radiation syndrome, to rescue individuals from potential gastrointestinal acute radiation syndrome injury. This tool provides a triage diagnostic approach to assist first-responders to assess individuals suspected of showing gastrointestinal acute radiation syndrome severity to guide medical management, hence enhancing medical readiness for managing radiological casualties.

Attention Score in Context

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 10. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 03 August 2023.
All research outputs
#3,298,877
of 24,201,556 outputs
Outputs from International Journal of Radiation Biology
#92
of 1,846 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#55,688
of 362,664 outputs
Outputs of similar age from International Journal of Radiation Biology
#1
of 9 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 24,201,556 research outputs across all sources so far. Compared to these this one has done well and is in the 86th percentile: it's in the top 25% of all research outputs ever tracked by Altmetric.
So far Altmetric has tracked 1,846 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 4.5. This one has done particularly well, scoring higher than 94% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 362,664 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has done well, scoring higher than 84% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 9 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has scored higher than all of them
