PURPOSE To determine the (1) incidence of peripheral blood glucose (PBG < 40 mg/dL) in infants within 2 hours of birth and (2) validity of using maternal and infant risk factors and/or infant signs/symptoms of hypoglycemia as a screen for PBG < 40 mg/dL. STUDY DESIGN Descriptive study with a convenience sample of 220 mother-infant dyads admitted to a(More)
PURPOSE This study shows that there is no clear dosimetric benefit of biological-based optimization for either fixed-beam IMRT or VMAT. Other than shorter delivery times, even VMAT does not offer additional advantage to fixed-beam IMRT. METHODS A small number of patients for lung, pancreas, spine and brain CA were planned with fixed-beam IMRT, optimized(More)
PURPOSE This work investigates the dosimetric impact of 4D-CT treatment planning for lung SBRT. We compare treatment planning and dosimetric characteristic between plans optimized on free-breathing (FB) scans then, computed on maximum and average intensity projections (MIP and AIP). Which data set is more favorable for planning and dose calculations between(More)
