PURPOSE To adequately monitor the doses for Total Body Irradiation (TBI) patients using opposed fields, we carry out both active and passive in vivo dosimetry, with the passive dosimeter being Optically Stimulated Luminescence (OSL) detectors. The OSLs are embedded in hemispherical brass buildup caps with the OSL/flat surface placed against patient skin.(More)
The aim of this study was to determine if anterior cruciate ligament reconstructed (ACL-R) female athletes exhibit altered lower limb kinematic profiles during jump landing when compared to a non-injured age, sex, and activity matched control group. Fourteen ACL-R and 14 non-injured control subjects performed 3 vertical drop jump (DVJ) trials. Lower limb(More)

There were 64,207 subjects age 5 and older, who contributed 386,000(More)
PURPOSE Our institution uses a manual laser-based system for primary localization and verification during radiation treatment of left-sided breast cancer patients using deep inspiration breath hold (DIBH). This primary system was compared with sternum-placed Calypso(R) beacons (Varian Medical Systems, CA). Only intact breast patients are considered for this(More)
