Two methods for assessing accommodative facility were compared: the Computer Orthoptics Diagnostic Program and the standard Lens Flipper Method. In random fashion, 40 visually normal [modified clinical technique (MCT) screening] subjects, ages 10 to 18 years, were tested monocularly and binocularly on both methods. Scatter-plot comparisons of the data(More)
The ability to vary source dwell times in high dose rate (HDR) brachytherapy allows for the use of non-uniform dwell times along a line source. This may have advantages in the radical treatment of tumours depending on individual tumour geometry. This study investigates the potential improvements in local tumour control relative to adjacent normal tissue(More)
The role of low dose rate (LDR) intracavitary radiotherapy in the management of carcinoma of the uterine cervix is well established. However, there are selected groups of patients in whom high dose rate (HDR) intracavitary radiotherapy may have particular advantages. A case report of a patient with carcinoma of the cervix who received both LDR and HDR(More)
A series of potent and selective [1,2,4]triazolo[1,5-a]pyrimidine PDE2a inhibitors is reported. The design and improvement of the binding properties of this series was achieved using X-ray crystal structures in conjunction with careful analysis of electronic and structural requirements for the PDE2a enzyme. One of the lead compounds, compound 27 (DNS-8254),(More)
PURPOSE The use of endobronchial brachytherapy in the treatment of lung cancer is increasing due to the more widespread availability of high dose rate afterloading equipment. The complications include small airway (segmental and small lobar bronchi) fibrosis, stenosis, and obstructive complications in addition to hemorrhage. A progressive reduction in the(More)
The estimation of maximum bladder doses from orthogonal radiographs is unreliable when triple source systems are used for intracavitary brachytherapy (BT) for gynaecological cancers. For single line source systems, the estimation of maximum bladder doses from radiographs should be more reliable due to the radial symmetry of the isodose distribution. A pilot(More)
