Soft Tissue Radionecrosis

Soft tissue radionecrosis (STRN) refers to the death (necrosi) of soft tissues as a result of exposure to ionizing radiation. It is a counterpart of osteoradionecrosis, which is the death of bone tissue due to radiation. Continue Reading

Osteoradionecrosis

Osteoradionecrosis (ORN) is a condition in which bone tissue dies as a result of radiation exposure. Normally, bone tissue is able to regenerate. It can occur spontaneously, but may be the result of an injury such as tooth extraction or oral surgery. Continue Reading

Radiation Injury

A radiation injury is tissue damage caused by exposure to ionizing radiation, including gamma rays, beta rays and X-rays. High-dose radiation that causes radiation injuries can occur due to an accident at a nuclear power plant or the detonation of a radioactive device. Continue Reading
