    In publication or citation search, the name similarities of the authors, typographical errors and institutional changes can cause confusion. To prevent this, researchers need to obtain a descriptive ID. ORCID (Open Researcher and Contributor ID) is a researcher-specific international URI with a 16-digit number. You can register for free for individual ORCID at http://orcid.org. Please indicate the ORCID number of all authors when submitting your article.

Dear readers,

Our journal is the official publication of Inonu University Medical Faculty and published uninterruptedly for 25 years. It was first published as the name of Inonu University Medical Journal and later as Journal of Turgut Ozal Medical Center. During its publication period, the journal accepted Turkish or English articles for publication.

Abstracting in an international index is just a paramount objective in the 25th year of the journal. Because of this goal, it was necessary to make a decision both in terms of journal name and publication language. It was important in this respect that the name of a general medical journal should be related to medicine again and it should be in English. For these reasons, the name of the journal was switched to Annals of Medical Research and its publication language is changed to in English. The logo of the journal was chosen as an apricot, which is the symbol of our city Malatya, the world capital of apricot. I hope the journal succeeds with its new name. Annals of Medical Research is It is published monthly.

Abstract

Aim: The purpose of this study was to model the metallic port which included samarium cobalt magnet in breast tissue expanders and to improve the accuracy of dose calculations with nanoDot optically stimulated luminescence dosimeter (nanoDot OSLD) measurements.
Material and Methods: Mentor TTE (Temporary Tissue expander) (at a depth of 3 cm) was modeled by DOSXYZnrc Monte Carlo code and the nanoDot OSLD were used for dose measurements in solid water phantoms.
Results: In present study, dose increases in tissue at 3 cm due to the backscatter of electrons was 16.3% for metallic port at 6 MV using the Monte Carlo method. It was observed 12 % in the experimental results. Additionally, while the decrease in dose behind the port was 17.4 % by Monte Carlo program code, it was observed 25.8 % in the experimental results
Conclusions: In present study, the low dose region remains in saline solution within the tissue expander. It can be negligible clinically. In a clinical setting, the breast patients are treated with tangent beam fields. It was thought that unless the frontal direct field was not used in clinics for these patients, the dose reduction and dose increase would not do not play a role in influencing the treatment.

Keywords: Breast cancer; metallic port; NanoDot OSLD; radiotherapy dose distribution; temporary tissue expander

Annals of Medical Research is the scientific official journal of the Inonu University Faculty of Medicine. It is published monthly. The essential aim of the Annals of Medical Research is to publish scientifically high quality clinical and experimental research articles on fields of medicine which can contribute to the literature data. In addition, review articles, case reports, editorials, letters to the editors and manuscripts on publication ethics and medical history, which can contribute to the education and practices of physicians and health sector professionals within the scope of the journal’s target audience and which can increase the level of scientific communication between the authors and readers, are included in the scope of the journal.
