To explore the clinical performances of the needle-type glucose sensor, in vivo monitoring was conducted in human subjects. The tissue glucose concentrations measured by glucose sensor were lower than the plasma glucose concentrations by 15%, but a good linear relationship was observed between the tissue and plasma glucose concentrations. The sensing sites(More)
For the long-term clinical use of the wearable artificial endocrine pancreas, a fail-safe system is an essential mechanism. Several hardware alarm systems have been incorporated for battery-down, and short-run of the pumps. Software alarm systems for overflow or underflow of the AD converter, empty bags, hypoglycemia, hyperglycemia, abnormal values of(More)
Aim of this study was to compare the dosimetric aspects of whole breast radiotherapy (WBRT) between an irregular surface compensator (ISC) and a conventional tangential field technique using physical wedges. Treatment plans were produced for 20 patients. The Eclipse treatment planning system (Varian Medical Systems) was used for the dose calculation: For(More)
