This stylebook is an updated version of Telljohann et al. (2006). It describes the design principles and the annotation scheme for the German treebank TüBa-D/Z developed by the Division of Computational Linguistics (Lehrstuhl Prof. Hinrichs) at the Department of Linguistics (Seminar für Sprachwis-senschaft – SfS) of the Eberhard Karls Universität Tübingen,(More)
PURPOSE To compare tumor bed (TB) volumes delineated using magnetic resonance imaging plus computed tomography and clips (MRCT) with those delineated using CT and clips (CT/clips) alone in postlumpectomy breast cancer patients positioned prone and to determine the value of MRCT for planning partial breast irradiation (PBI). METHODS AND MATERIALS Thirty(More)
PURPOSE To describe a methodology, based on cluster analysis, to partition multi-parametric functional imaging data into groups (or clusters) of similar functional characteristics, with the aim of characterizing functional heterogeneity within head and neck tumour volumes. To evaluate the performance of the proposed approach on a set of longitudinal MRI(More)
PURPOSE To determine whether quantitation of T2* is sufficiently repeatable and sensitive to detect clinically relevant oxygenation levels in head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC) at 3T. MATERIALS AND METHODS Ten patients with newly diagnosed locally advanced HNSCC underwent two magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans between 24 and 168 hours apart(More)
This work investigates and compares two different phase-correction algorithms for Dixon fat-water separation and two different quality maps (QM) for region-growing: the original QM, based on phase gradients, and a QM based on phase uncertainty, proposed in this article. A spoiled dual-gradient-echo sequence was employed at 1.5 T to acquire in-phase and(More)
PURPOSE MRI is a mandatory requirement to accurately plan Stereotactic Radiosurgery (SRS) for Vestibular Schwannomas. However, MRI may be distorted due not only to inhomogeneity of the static magnetic field and gradients but also due to susceptibility-induced effects, which are more prominent at higher magnetic fields. We assess geometrical distortions(More)
OBJECTIVES To evaluate sources of error in the Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) measurement of percent fibroglandular tissue (%FGT) using two-point Dixon sequences for fat-water separation. METHODS Ten female volunteers (median age: 31 yrs, range: 23-50 yrs) gave informed consent following Research Ethics Committee approval. Each volunteer was scanned(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Magnetic resonance (MR) and computed tomography (CT) images are degraded in the presence of metallic implants. We investigate whether SEMAC (Slice Encoding for Metal Artifact Correction) MR is advantageous for radiotherapy (RT) planning. METHODS Conventional and SEMAC MR protocols were compared (1.5T). A spine fixation device(More)
