OBJECT The purpose of this study was to clarify the effectiveness of gamma knife radiosurgery (GKS) in achieving a partial or complete remission of so-called radioresistant metastases from renal cell carcinoma (RCC) and to propose guidelines for optimal treatment METHODS During a 5-year period, 29 patients (19 male and 10 female) with 92 brain metastases(More)
OBJECT The purpose of this study was to evaluate retrospectively the effectiveness of stereotactic radiosurgery for intracranial metastatic melanoma and to identify prognostic factors related to tumor control and survival that might be helpful in determining appropriate therapy. METHODS Twenty-four patients with intracranial metastases (115 lesions)(More)
The fast growth of computer network technologies, like IEEE 802.11x series, Bluetooth, GPRS etc., makes it possible to build computer-assisted surgery (CAS) system in a distributed way, e.g. the wireless connection in operation room, telepresent (surgeons participating in surgery remotely) from anywhere, at anytime. However, the communication overhead of(More)
Communication optimization plays an important role in building networked distributed applications. In this paper, we systematically evaluate four bandwidth reduction algorithms , namely direct sending, delta-encoding, fix-sized blocking, and vary-sized blocking, using five types of documents including source code, images, Web contents, Mi-crosoft Word(More)
BACKGROUND This study evaluates prognostic factors influencing survival outcomes for 60 patients with permanent iodine-125 implants in the primary treatment of non-glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) high-grade gliomas. METHODS Stereotactic treatment planning aimed to encompass the contrast-enhancing rim of the tumor visualized by CT, with an initial dose rate(More)
OBJECT Recent studies have suggested a high incidence of cognitive deficits in patients undergoing high-dose chemotherapy, which appears to be dose related. Whole-brain radiotherapy (WBRT) has previously been associated with cognitive impairment. The authors attempted to use gamma knife radiosurgery (GKS) to delay or avoid WBRT in patients with advanced(More)
