Describes innovative software for catheter localization and 3D reconstruction in stepping-source brachytherapy applications. The patient information is a set of computed tomography (CT) slices, scanned during the implantation of brachytherapy catheters. Catheter geometry and patient anatomy are exported for use with dose calculation software modules. The(More)
Laparoscopy is an established method for the treatment of numerous surgical conditions. Natural orifice transluminal endoscopic surgery (NOTES) is a novel surgical technique that uses the natural orifices of the human body as entrances to the abdominal cavity. An alternative concept of minimally invasive approach to the abdominal cavity is to insert all the(More)
We developed a mobile teleconsultation system based on third-generation mobile phone links. The system comprised a laptop computer and a digital camcorder. It was installed inside an ambulance to allow video-conferencing between the moving vehicle and a doctor at a base station. In addition to video and voice, high-quality still images could also be(More)
One of the main problems in public key infrastructures (PKI) is currently the lack of interoperability at international level, which is greatly dependent on the automation of the cross-certification procedure using certificate policies (CP). This paper addresses the aforementioned need by presenting a method for the automated development and comparison of(More)
Minimising the time required for a patient to receive primary care has always been the concern of the Accidents and Emergency units. Ambulances are usually the first to arrive on the scene and to administer first aid. However, as the time that it takes to transfer the patient to the hospital increases, so does the fatality rate. In this paper, a mobile(More)
Aim. Modular mini-robots can be used in novel minimally invasive surgery techniques like natural orifice transluminal endoscopic surgery (NOTES) and laparoendoscopic single site (LESS) surgery. The control of these miniature assistants is complicated. The aim of this study is the in silico investigation of a remote controlling interface for modular(More)

Long latency evoked potentials (EPs) are electrical potentials related to brain information processing mechanisms. A three-layered neurophysiologically based artificial neural network model is presented whose neurons obey to Dale's law. The first two layers of the network can memorize and recall sparsely coded patterns, oscillating at biologically plausible(More)
