A unified evolutionary approach to coplanar radiotherapy inverse planning is proposed. It consists of a genetic algorithm-based framework that solves with little modification treatment planning for three different kinds of radiation therapy: conformal, aperture-based and intensity modulated. Thanks to evolutionary optimisation techniques we have been able(More)
A large number of embedded multimedia applications are characterized by high instruction-level parallelism (ILP) especially in the most critical internal loop bodies. Very large instruction word (VLIW) architectures and application specific instruction set processors (ASIP) are best suited to exploit such parallelism. Fast design space exploration and(More)
Abstrac t In this work we develop a secure communication protocol in the context of a Remote Meter Reading (RMR) System. We first analyze existing standards in secure communication (e.g. IPsec, SSL/TSL) and existing implementations aimed at embedded systems with l ow-power constraints in general (e.g. lwIP, lwBT, ZigBee). Then, starting from a Platform(More)
A unified evolutionary approach to coplanar radiotherapy inverse planning is proposed. It consists of a genetic algorithm-based framework that solves with little modification treatment planning for three different kinds of radiation therapy: conformal, so-called aperture-based and intensity modulated. Thanks to evolutionary optimisation techniques we have(More)
We investigated the usefulness of a new examiner-independent method based on the duration of vibration sensation following the placement of the Rydel-Seiffer tuning fork over the dorsum of the interphalangeal hallux joint. This method demonstrated the same diagnostic efficacy as the Rydel-Seiffer method coupled with greater ease of use.
