Treatment planning tools that use biologically related models for plan optimization and/or evaluation are being introduced for clinical use. A variety of dose-response models and quantities along with a series of organ-specific model parameters are included in these tools. However, due to various limitations, such as the limitations of models and available(More)
This article reexamines two historic Supreme Court's decisions—the 1964 Times v. Sullivan and the 1974 Gertz v. Welch—as they apply to the digital era. The Court's decision in Sullivan established the federal legal guidelines for a victim to prove a libel case including actual malice. In Gertz v.

The ever-increasing data demands in a radiation oncology (RO) clinic require medical physicists to have a clearer understanding of the information technology (IT) resource management issues. Clear lines of collaboration and communication among administrators, medical physicists, IT staff, equipment service engineers and vendors need to be established. In(More)
BACKGROUND The objective of this study was to enhance removal of fishing gear from right whales (Eubalaena glacialis) at sea that evade disentanglement boat approaches. Titrated intra muscular injections to achieve sedation were undertaken on two free swimming right whales. METHODOLOGY/PRINCIPAL FINDINGS Following initial trials with beached whales, a(More)
BACKGROUND Stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT) is evolving into a standard of care for unresectable lung nodules. Local control has been shown to be in excess of 90% at 3 years. However, some patients present with synchronous lung nodules in the ipsilateral or contralateral lobe or metasynchronous disease. In these cases, patients may receive multiple(More)

PURPOSE Stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT) is commonly used to treat unresectable lung nodules. Given its relative safety and effective local control, SBRT has also been used to treat recurrent lung nodules after high-dose external beam radiation (EBRT) to the lung. The toxicity of such treatment is unknown. METHODS AND MATERIALS Between 2006 and 2012,(More)
