Recent advances now permit resection of many pharyngeal tumors through the open mouth, an approach that can greatly reduce the morbidity of surgical exposure. These transoral techniques are being rapidly adopted by the surgical community and hold considerable promise. On November 6-7, 2011, the National Cancer Institute sponsored a Clinical Trials Planning(More)
IMPORTANCE Surgical salvage may be the only viable treatment option for recurrent tumors of the oropharynx. To our knowledge, there have been no published reports directly comparing the oncologic and functional outcomes of patients with recurrent oropharyngeal squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) treated with transoral robotic-assisted surgery (TORS) with those(More)
1. THE PHAROS PLATFORM AND DEMO PHAROS 1 [1] is an Integrated Project aimed at building a platform for advanced audiovisual search applications. The Consortium comprises 12 partners from 9 European countries. 2 PHAROS unbundles the functionalities of an audiovisual search engine into an open service-based ecosystem , where content can be submitted to(More)
Intussusception of the large bowel is a rare clinical entity. In adults, this pathology is usually associated with a malignant lead point and often requires operative management. Reported is the case of an 83-year-old female who was recently diagnosed with superficial bladder cancer (T1) treated by partial cystectomy. She presented 3 months post-operatively(More)
A 34-year-old man with hypercalcemia had a sestamibi scan that showed increased uptake that appeared to correspond with a 7 mm density in the mediastinum, adjacent to the aortic arch, on chest CT. This lesion was thought to be consistent with an ectopic parathyroid adenoma. Prior to surgical exploration, the patient was injected intravenously with 12.3(More)
The integration of optoelectronic devices, such as photoconductive semiconductor switches (PCSS), into existing antenna source architectures for the generation of radio frequency (RF) pulses may yield higher switching speeds and improved power efficiency over conventional switching methods while reducing size/weight. The key enabling technologies for this(More)
In this paper we illustrate the model-driven development approach applied to the user interface of an audiovisual search application, within the European project PHAROS. We show how conceptual modelling can capture the most complex features of an audiovisual Web search portal, which allows users to pose advanced queries over multi-media materials, access(More)
