In this work a prioritized optimization algorithm is adapted and applied to treatment planning for intensity modulated proton therapy (IMPT). Originally, this algorithm was developed for intensity modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) with photons. Prioritized optimization converts the clinical hierarchy of treatment goals into an effective optimization scheme(More)
A measurement for ergonomic conditions is derived from motion analysis of surgical instruments. Several features for surgical skill assessment are examined and an overall grading system for surgical skill assessment and evaluation of ergonomic conditions based on the movement of the instruments' tool tips is presented. The grading system is applied to(More)
BACKGROUND Visual deterioration is a crucial point in minimally invasive surgery impeding surgical performance. Modern image processing technologies appear to be promising approaches for further image optimization by digital elimination of disturbing particles. To make them mature for clinical application, an experimental test environment for evaluation of(More)
