In summary, genetically determined intrinsic radiosensitivity can be detected and quantified by FISH approaches. The 24-color FISH can be used as well as the three-color FISH. FISH is as reliable but more informative than conventional cytogenetic data (e.g., Refs. [8,9]). As stated before, the 24-color FISH approach requires a very sophisticated evaluation. However, the data obtainable by this technique are indispensable to decide whether there exist any hot spots for radiation-induced breakpoints. If so, such hot spots could be characterized in detail by FISH-banding methods,[21] and in the following, locus-specific breakpoint-spanning probes could be applied in the future for quick detection of individual radiosensitivity, possibly even in interphase cytogenetics.

Getting Started With Dumbbells

Getting Started With Dumbbells

The use of dumbbells gives you a much more comprehensive strengthening effect because the workout engages your stabilizer muscles, in addition to the muscle you may be pin-pointing. Without all of the belts and artificial stabilizers of a machine, you also engage your core muscles, which are your body's natural stabilizers.
