BACKGROUND Understanding the three-dimensional (3D) volumetric relationship between imaging and functional or histopathologic heterogeneity of tumours is a key concept in the development of image-guided radiotherapy. Our aim was to develop a methodologic framework to enable the reconstruction of resected lung specimens containing non-small-cell lung cancer(More)
Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer death in Canada. The organization of health care services is central to the delivery of accessible, high-quality medical care and may be one factor that influences patient outcome. An exciting opportunity arose for clinicians to initiate the redesign of lung cancer services provided by three institutions in the(More)

Exposure of the pulp may act as a great insult during preparations, so this study investigated the probability of clinically undiagnosed pulp microexposures. The axial wall of 30 deep class II preparations in human premolars was searched for any microexposure after extraction. Seven teeth (23.7 percent) showed some kind of exposure. It is concluded that(More)
BACKGROUND Nitric oxide (NO) is a major mediator in vascular biology, regulating regional blood flow. NO and the enzymes required for its production contribute to ischemia-reperfusion injury. The T-786C functional polymorphism in the promoter region substantially reduces promoter activity of the endothelial nitric oxide synthase (eNOS) gene and compromises(More)
