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.
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...
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.
The Monte-Carlo method is the standard method for computing the dosimetry of both ionizing and non-ionizing radiation. Because this technique is highly time-consuming in conventional implementations, ...
Data on the output correction factor of the PTW microDiamond for small photon beam dosimetry can be found in a variety of papers. Referring either to measurements or to Monte Carlo (MC) calculations, ...
The utility of PEREGRINE Monte Carlo calculations for radiation treatment planning in a clinical setting will be assessed by comparing results with other fully three-dimensional programs. ...
This is a Phase 1 study of the use of an investigational drug that selectively delivers radiation to malignant tumor cells, CLR 131, in combination with external beam radiation therapy (EB...
Several population pharmacokinetic (PK) models for cefepime in critically ill patients have been described, all indicating that variability in renal clearance is the main determinant of ob...
The purpose of this study is to determine whether a relationship exists between EtCO2 and carboxyhemoglobin levels in carbon monoxide exposure. Our hypothesis is that a liner relationship ...
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...
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.
Pediatrics is the general medicine of childhood. Because of the developmental processes (psychological and physical) of childhood, the involvement of parents, and the social management of conditions at home and at school, pediatrics is a specialty. With ...
According to the American Brain Tumor Association, just over 24,000 patients will be diagnosed with a primary malignant brain tumour during 2012 in the US alone. Some 80% of primary malignant brain tumours are gliomas, a broad term which includes all tum...
