Organ Doses from CT Localizer Radiographs: Development, Validation, and Application of a Monte Carlo Estimation Technique.

The purpose of this study was to simulate and validate organ doses from different CT localizer radiograph geometries using Monte Carlo methods for a population of patients.

Poisson-Boltzmann equation with a random field for charged fluids.

The classical Poisson-Boltzmann equation (CPBE), which is a mean field theory by averaging the ion fluctuation, has been widely used to study ion distributions in charged fluids. In this study, we der...

Validation of the RayStation Monte Carlo dose calculation algorithm using realistic animal tissue phantoms.

The aim of this study is to validate the RayStation Monte Carlo (MC) dose algorithm using animal tissue neck phantoms and a water breast phantom.

Predicting Treatment Response to Exposure Therapy Using Carbon Dioxide

Anxiety disorders affect over a quarter of the population, yet very little is known about the variables that predict treatment outcome. The planned study explores whether a patient's respo...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

In statistics, a technique for numerically approximating the solution of a mathematical problem by studying the distribution of some random variable, often generated by a computer. The name alludes to the randomness characteristic of the games of chance played at the gambling casinos in Monte Carlo. (From Random House Unabridged Dictionary, 2d ed, 1993)

The use of a heavy ion particle beam for radiotherapy, such as the HEAVY IONS of CARBON.

The interdisciplinary science that studies evolutionary biology, including the origin and evolution of the major elements required for life, their processing in the interstellar medium and in protostellar systems. This field also includes the study of chemical evolution and the subsequent interactions between evolving biota and planetary evolution as well as the field of biology that deals with the study of extraterrestrial life.

Radiotherapy given to augment some other form of treatment such as surgery or chemotherapy. Adjuvant radiotherapy is commonly used in the therapy of cancer and can be administered before or after the primary treatment.

The total amount of radiation absorbed by tissues as a result of radiotherapy.
