Moori is a hybrid form of an audience participatory dynamic narrative and an audio-visual performance system. By incorporating a smart phone's dynamic interface and SMS, users share their thoughts to proposed questions by a performer. Through text inputs, buttons, and multi-touch pads, user-data is processed to generate algorithmic audio and visuals. The(More)
Breast cancer is the most prevalent cancer in Asian females, and the incidence of breast cancer has been increasing in Asia. Because Asian patients develop breast cancer at a younger age than their Caucasian counterparts, the contributions of BRCA1 and BRCA2 (BRCA1/2) mutations in Asians are expected to be different than in Caucasians. The prevalence of(More)
PURPOSE This study was designed to evaluate the impact of radiochemotherapeutic sequence and time to initiation of adjuvant treatment on loco-regional control for resected stage II and III rectal cancer. MATERIALS AND METHODS Treatment outcomes for rectal cancer patients from two hospitals with different sequencing strategies regarding adjuvant concurrent(More)
PURPOSE This study was performed to evaluate prognostic factors for survival from first relapse (SFFR) in stage I-III breast cancer patients. MATERIALS AND METHODS From June 1994 to June 2008, 3,835 patients were treated with surgery plus postoperative radiotherapy and adjuvant chemotherapy for stage I-III breast cancer at Samsung Medical Center. Among(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of the present study was to acquire information on brachytherapy resources in Korea through a national survey of radiation oncologists. METHODS Between October 2014 and January 2015, a questionnaire on the current status of brachytherapy was distributed to all 86 radiation oncology departments in Korea. The questionnaire was divided into(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE This study was performed to determine optimal radiation dose in pN1 breast cancer patients who received breast conserving surgery (BCS) and anthracycline plus taxane (AT)-based chemotherapy. MATERIALS AND METHODS Retrospective chart reviews were performed in 1,147 patients who were treated between January 2006 and December 2010. The(More)
In this paper, we introduce a prototype for a tangible interface to encourage turn-taking in group discussions. Teams with better distribution of turn-taking have been found to outperform those with poorly distributed turn-taking. Making teams aware of their turn-taking dynamics thus has the potential to improve their performance. This paper explores the(More)
PURPOSE The aim of the current study is to assess the spectrum of genetic variation in the BRIP1 gene among Korean high-risk breast cancer patients who tested negative for the BRCA1/2 mutation. MATERIALS AND METHODS Overall, 235 Korean patientswith BRCA1/2 mutation-negative high-risk breast cancerwere screened for BRIP1 mutations. The entire BRIP1 gene(More)
BACKGROUND This study aimed for a collaborative evaluation of variability in the target volumes for glioblastoma, determined and contoured by different radiotherapy (RT) facilities in Korea. METHODS Fifteen panels of radiation oncologists from independent institutions contoured the gross target volumes (GTVs) and clinical target volumes (CTVs) for(More)
The purpose of the present study was to analyze genetic variations in the NBS1 gene and to evaluate the contribution of heterozygous NBS1 mutation to the risk of breast cancer among Korean patients with high-risk breast cancer negative for BRCA1/2 mutation. We screened 235 non-BRCA1/2 Korean patients with high-risk breast cancer for NBS1 mutations. The(More)
