Compounders engaged in making sterile preparations need to employ a quality assurance system of documented policies and procedures to attempt to reduce the possibility of contamination. The quality-as...
At our institution all proton patient plans undergo patient-specific quality assurance (PSQA) prior to treatment delivery. For intensity modulated proton beam therapy, quality assurance is complex and...
Basics of Sterile Compounding. Quality Assurance and Quality Control: Being Prepared for U.S. Food and Drug Administration Inspections and Staying in Compliance with United States Pharmacopeia Chapter <797>: Part 2.
Compounders engaged in making sterile preparations need to employ a quality-assurance system of documented policies and procedures to attempt to reduce the possibility of contamination. The quality-as...
For interventions, like the Transition to Independence Process (TIP) Model, to be implemented effectively, efficient and accessible quality assurance tools are needed. The purpose of this article is t...
Integrated positron emission tomography/computer tomography (PET/CT) image quality assurance ensures accurate, reproducible, and quantitative assessment of comparable scanner performance. We performed...
The goal of this clinical research study is to learn whether delivering spine radiosurgery in a single large dose is better than delivering spine radiosurgery over 3 smaller doses. Resear...
The purpose of this study is to determine the effectiveness and efficiency of Single Isocenter Multi-target Stereotactic Radiosurgery (SIMT SRS) in patients with four or more brain metasta...
This pilot study will evaluate the technical feasibility and acute toxicity of Partial Breast Irradiation (PBI) with the CyberKnife in anticipation of a larger multi-institutional Phase II...
This phase I pilot trial studies the side effects of stereotactic radiosurgery and nivolumab in treating patients with newly diagnosed melanoma that has spread to the brain or spine. Stere...
This phase III trial studies the side effects and how well stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) works before or after surgery in patients with tumors that has spread to the brain or that can be...
Activities and programs intended to assure or improve the quality of care in either a defined medical setting or a program. The concept includes the assessment or evaluation of the quality of care; identification of problems or shortcomings in the delivery of care; designing activities to overcome these deficiencies; and follow-up monitoring to ensure effectiveness of corrective steps.
Classification system for assessing impact injury severity developed and published by the American Association for Automotive Medicine. It is the system of choice for coding single injuries and is the foundation for methods assessing multiple injuries or for assessing cumulative effects of more than one injury. These include Maximum AIS (MAIS), Injury Severity Score (ISS), and Probability of Death Score (PODS).
A measurement index derived from a modification of standard life-table procedures and designed to take account of the quality as well as the duration of survival. This index can be used in assessing the outcome of health care procedures or services. (BIOETHICS Thesaurus, 1994)
A sampling methodology using small sample sizes when conducting surveys in small geographical or population-based areas or lots.
A radiological stereotactic technique developed for cutting or destroying tissue by high doses of radiation in place of surgical incisions. It was originally developed for neurosurgery on structures in the brain and its use gradually spread to radiation surgery on extracranial structures as well. The usual rigid needles or probes of stereotactic surgery are replaced with beams of ionizing radiation directed toward a target so as to achieve local tissue destruction.
