PURPOSE To evaluate the dosimetric benefits of advanced radiotherapy techniques for craniospinal irradiation in cancer in children. METHODS AND MATERIALS Craniospinal irradiation (CSI) using three-dimensional conformal radiotherapy (3D-CRT), tomotherapy (TOMO), and proton beam treatment (PBT) in the scattering mode was planned for each of 10 patients at(More)
PURPOSE To assess clinical outcomes and complications in patients with non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) treated with helical tomotherapy (HT) with or without chemotherapy. METHODS AND MATERIALS Data from 37 NSCLC patients treated between January 2007 and August 2008 were analyzed retrospectively. Twenty-eight patients had Stage III disease. Concurrent(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE As an alternative to whole breast irradiation in early breast cancer, a variety of accelerated partial breast irradiation (APBI) techniques have been investigated. The purpose of our study is to compare the dosimetry of four different external beam APBI (EB-APBI) plans: three-dimensional conformal radiation therapy (3D-CRT),(More)
We present two novel schemes for refractometry based on a long-period fiber grating- (LPG-) based Michelson interferometer. These schemes are designed to overcome the measurement dependence of previously demonstrated LPG-based refractometry on the immersion depth. The first utilizes an unshielded LPG and the second, a shielded one. Both schemes were tested(More)
A diaphragm-based interferometric fiberoptic sensor that uses a low-coherence light source was designed and tested for on-line detection of the acoustic waves generated by partial discharges inside high-voltage power transformers. The sensor uses a fused-silica diaphragm and a single-mode optical fiber encapsulated in a fused-silica glass tube to form an(More)
We studied how preoperative templating corresponded to the postoperative leg length in total hip arthroplasty. On average, the preoperative predictive value of the desired corrective change in leg length was +4.9 (+4.0-+6.7) mm, while the true postoperative assessed value of the corrective change in leg length was +4.7 (+4.0-+6.3) mm. On preoperative(More)
In this paper, we present a CMOS digital image stabilization algorithm based on the characteristics of a rolling shutter camera. Due to the rolling shuttering mechanism of a CMOS sensor, a CMOS video frame shows CMOS distortions which are not observed in a CCD video frame, and previous video stabilization techniques cannot handle these distortions properly(More)
In this paper, we present a new background estimation algorithm which effectively represents both background and foreground. The problem is formulated with a labeling problem over a patch-based Markov random field (MRF) and solved with a graph-cuts algorithm. Our method is applied to the problem of mosaic blending considering the moving objects and exposure(More)
