Configurable publish-subscribe middleware provides efficient support for the diverse Quality-of-Service (QoS) requirements of large-scale distributed applications. However, choosing the optimal middleware configuration to suit a specific application primarily remains a manual task within the responsibility of application developers. Existing configurable(More)
BACKGROUND At present there is no consensus on irradiation treatment volumes for intermediate to high-risk primary cancers or recurrent disease. Conventional imaging modalities, such as CT, MRI and transrectal ultrasound, are considered suboptimal for treatment decisions. Choline-PET/CT might be considered as the imaging modality in radiooncology to select(More)
Poly(3-hydroxybutyrate) (PHB) granules are important storage compounds of carbon and energy in many prokaryotes which allow survival of the cells in the absence of suitable carbon sources. Formation and subcellular localization of PHB granules was previously assumed to occur randomly in the cytoplasm of PHB accumulating bacteria. However, contradictionary(More)
—The α-OffSync project offers a synchronization concept for α-Flow, an electronic process support in heterogeneous inter-institutional scenarios in healthcare. A distributed case file is provided by α-Flow to represent workflow schemas as documents which are shared coequally to content documents. α-OffSync allows the detection and resolution of global(More)
Stroke is the most debilitating cardiovascular event. It has a variety of causes that may be present simultaneously. In young or otherwise healthy people, the search for a patent foramen ovale (PFO) has become standard. In stroke of the elderly, atherosclerosis and atrial fibrillation are in the foreground but the PFO should not be ignored. The risk of a(More)
BACKGROUND Several studies have shown an association of cryptogenic stroke and embolism with patent foramen ovale (PFO), but the question how to prevent further events in such patients is unresolved. Options include antithrombotic treatment with warfarin or antiplatelet agents or surgical or endovascular closure of the PFO. The PC-Trial was set up to(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the calibration of an adaptive thresholding algorithm (contrast-oriented algorithm) for FDG PET-based delineation of tumour volumes in eleven centres with respect to scanner types and image data processing by phantom measurements. METHODS A cylindrical phantom with spheres of different diameters was filled with FDG realizing different(More)
