1. ISO 3166-1 alpha-2 code for Grenada. This is the code used in international transactions to and from bank accounts in Grenada.

2. ISO 3166-2 geocode for Grenada. This is used as an international standard for shipping to Grenada. Each parish in Grenada has its own code with the prefix "GD." For example, the code for the Parish of St. Andrew is ISO 3166-2:GD-01.

His team pointed to several ways imaging centers could prevent inadvertent gadolinium exposure in pregnant women.
"While there is clear evidence that all types of [gadolinium contrast agents], both linear and macrocyclic, may result in trace amounts of gadolinium in the brain, there exists no clinical evidence that this leads to an increase in risk or harm to patients," a press release from GE Healthcare defended the company's MRI contrast agent Omniscan; and continued stating that "Omniscan has a specific cardiac indication in several European Member States; removing it would limit clinical choice."
Omniscan possesses a linear molecular structure, which is less stable and has greater gadolinium dissociation.
We measured the signal intensity of each cell pallets to obtain quantitative data, which is also an indirect method to determine the gadolinium deposition in the cells.
Most of the patterns (excluding those for the samples with gadolinium doping of 2.5 and 4.3 mol.%) contain the same sequence of the reflections at 2[theta] = 30.2, 35.5, 43.2, 53.5, 57.2, and 62.7[degrees] indicative for an inverse spinel phase and corresponding to (220), (311), (400), (422), (511), and (440) crystallographic planes, respectively, which is immanent to both magnetite and maghemite [1].
[5] have used all these performance indicators to numerically determine the cooling and overall performance of a micro-channel AMR magnetic refrigerator using gadolinium and water as MCM and heat transfer fluid respectively.
The consensual use of the 3 criteria "Lake Louise Criteria" (signal intensity increase in T2-weighted images "edema," early gadolinium enhancement in T1-weighted images "hyperemia," and late gadolinium enhancement in T1-weighted images "necrosis and fibrosis") has standardized the CMR protocol for myocarditis diagnosis [12].

Therefore, gadolinium oxysulfide nanophosphors ([Gd.sub.2][O.sub.2]S-NPs) were chosen due to its high chemical and thermal stability as well as wide band gap energy in the range of 4.6 to 4.8 eV, which is suitable for ionic doped activation [4] and efficiently reacted to become as a luminescent emitting material [5].
