BACKGROUND Volatile anesthetics are widely used in pediatric anesthesia but their potential neurotoxicity raise significant concerns regarding sequelae after anesthesia. However, whether physiological disturbance during anesthetic exposure contributes to such side effects remains unknown. The aim of the current study is to compare the neurotoxic effects of(More)
PURPOSE Intensity modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) treatment plan quality depends on the planner's level of experience and the amount of time the planner invests in developing the plan. Planners often unwittingly accept plans when further sparing of the organs at risk (OARs) is possible. The authors propose a method of IMRT treatment plan quality control(More)
In this paper we address the challenge of matching patient geometry to facilitate the design of patient treatment plans in radiotherapy. To this end we propose a novel shape descriptor, the Overlap Volume Histogram, which provides a rotation and translation invariant representation of a patient's organs at risk relative to the tumor volume. Using our(More)
The task of IMRT planning, particularly in head-and-neck cancer, is a difficult one, often requiring days of work from a trained dosimetrist. One of the main challenges is the prescription of achievable target doses that will be used to optimize a treatment plan. This work explores a data-driven approach in which effort spent on past plans is used to assist(More)
PURPOSE To develop a model to assess the quality of an IMRT treatment plan using data of prior patients with pancreatic adenocarcinoma. METHODS The dose to an organ at risk (OAR) depends in large part on its orientation and distance to the planning target volume (PTV). A database of 33 previously treated patients with pancreatic cancer was queried to find(More)
PURPOSE To investigate whether an overlap volume histogram (OVH)-driven planning application using an intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) database can guide and automate volumetric-modulated arc therapy (VMAT) planning for head-and-neck cancer. METHODS Based on comparable head-and-neck dosimetric results between planner-generated VMAT and IMRT(More)
It’s a promising way to improve performance significantly by adding reconfigurable processing unit to a general purpose processor. In this paper, a Reconfigurable Multi-Core (RMC) architecture combining general multi-core and reconfigurable logic is proposed. The Reconfigurable Logic is logically divided into Reconfigurable Processing Units (RPUs),(More)
With the development of electric technology, uniprocessor is being substituted by CMP (chip multi processors). CMP can run multi-thread program efficiently, many researchers engage in the study of multi-thread, including extracting multi-thread from legacy single thread program and making standardization for future multi-thread program.

In recent years, land use upstream of the Three Gorges Reservoir (TGR) has changed significantly because of the TGR project. In this study, the Soil and Water Assessment Tool (SWAT) model was examined for its ability to assess relationships between land use changes and nonpoint pollutant indexes upstream of the TGR. Results indicated that the SWAT model,(More)
To investigate the feasibility of using biochar to control organic pollutants in sediments, we extracted biochar from rice-straw combustion residues (RBC) and studied its adsorption ability and effect on seed germination ecotoxicity of pentachlorophenol (PCP). The results showed that the Freundlich and dual-mode models could describe all the sorption(More)
