PURPOSE Urinary retention is a frequently reported complication following radioactive seed implantation of the prostate. If retention is refractory, a post-implant transurethral prostatic resection may ultimately be required to relieve obstruction, leading to an increased risk of urinary incontinence. In this series the incidence of prolonged urinary(More)
dvances in computational science and engineering have changed profoundly both the artifacts we can realize and the processes by which we realize them. This article looks at the impact of these new technologies on the design of wearable computers covering three main areas: new design tools and approaches, new manufacturing technologies, and new uses of(More)
PURPOSE Interstitial brachytherapy plays an important role in the treatment of advanced and recurrent gynecologic malignancies. Unfortunately, the inability to visualize the tumor and surrounding normal structures during the implant has hampered the accuracy and safety of the implant. Transrectal ultrasound guided Syed-Neblett template implantation is a new(More)
Solid Freeform Fabrication and Shape Deposition are rapid manufacturing processes which build parts by incrcmental material deposition and fusion of cross-sectional layers. In Lhis paper, several thermal deposition processes are described for directly fabricating prototype metal shapes using robotically manipulated material deposition systems. A robotic(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the efficacy and toxicity of interferon-alpha-2b (IFN-alpha) and cisplatin given concomitantly with radiation therapy (RT) in the treatment of locally advanced cervical carcinoma. MATERIALS AND METHODS Twenty-one patients with stage bulky Ib-IIIb (Ib, 2; IIa, 2; IIb, 8; IIIb, 9) cervical carcinoma were treated with combined IFN-alpha(More)
