Name: Medical physics
A remote imaging system tracking Cherenkov emission was analyzed to verify that the linear accelerator (linac) beam shape could be quantitatively measured at the irradiation surface for Quality Audit ...
A new type of linear accelerator (linac) was recently introduced into the market by a major manufacturer. Our institution is one of the early users of this pre-assembled and pre-configured dual-layer ...
To identify risks associated with delivery of treatment with oral antineoplastic agents in an outpatient setting and to evaluate additional value and feasibility of engaging patients in a proactive ri...
One of the medical areas where errors can have more serious consequences is the process of blood transfusion. We used failure mode and effect analysis (FMEA) for evaluating potential failures and impr...
This study describes an analytical method to control the quality of potassium aspartate and magnesium aspartate (PAMA) injection based on the simultaneous detection of the main components (K, Mg and A...
The purpose of PERMIT is to collect information on the treatment of radiotherapy patients using a new radiotherapy machine that includes magnetic Resonance (MR) imaging (MR linac) to guide...
In radiotherapy high-tech scans with x-rays (CT scans) are taken before and during treatment to locate the tumour and ensure the radiation is hitting the target. These x-rays expose patie...
30% of heart failure patients that receive a device for cardiac resynchronization therapy fail to show clinical improvement. The reason for lack of response is still unclear but factors su...
This study assesses the ability of ambulatory patients with heart failure (HF) to use a smartphone application created for the management of patients with chronic HF. This study will aim: ...
The ADAPTION trial is an investigator initiated prospective randomized doubleblind cross-over pilot study in a multi-center setting. Aim: to assess the ability of minute ventilation (MV) ...
Prospective risk assessment tool aimed at identifying potential risks and their impact in healthcare settings.
The application of industrial management practice to systematically maintain and improve organization-wide performance. Effectiveness and success are determined and assessed by quantitative quality measures.
Meta-analysis of randomized trials in which estimates of comparative treatment effects are visualized and interpreted from a network of interventions that may or may not have been evaluated directly against each other. Common considerations in network meta-analysis include conceptual and statistical heterogeneity and incoherence.
The evaluation of incidents involving the loss of function of a device. These evaluations are used for a variety of purposes such as to determine the failure rates, the causes of failures, costs of failures, and the reliability and maintainability of devices.
An application that must be submitted to a regulatory agency (the FDA in the United States) before a drug can be studied in humans. This application includes results of previous experiments; how, where, and by whom the new studies will be conducted; the chemical structure of the compound; how it is thought to work in the body; any toxic effects found in animal studies; and how the compound is manufactured. (From the "New Medicines in Development" Series produced by the Pharmaceutical Manufacturers Association and published irregularly.)
