To relieve the stress of caregivers, it is critical to identify and classify the burden factors in the elderly patients. In order to determine the factors that exhaust caregivers, a cross sectional survey was done. The study employed a self-recording questionnaire form which included the Pines' burnout scale and the level of patient's basic activities of(More)
A cross sectional survey was performed to quantify factors that exhaust caregivers. We report that the degree of difficulty for caregivers correlated well with the burnout score (r = -0.517; p < 0.001), but the correlation between caregivers' burnout score and the level of their patient's basic ADL was lower (r = -0.317; p = 0.014). In this paper, we(More)
We have investigated an approach of exposure dose reduction in image guided patient positioning (IGPP) system based on noise suppression filters for cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) images. Three axis translations (left-right, anterior-posterior, superior-inferior) were performed on the IGPP system as patient setup errors between a planning CT image and(More)
We investigated the feasibility of patient dose reduction based on six noise suppression filters for cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) in an image-guided patient positioning (IGPP) system. A midpoint dose was employed as a patient dose index. First, a reference dose (RD) and low-dose (LD)-CBCT images were acquired with a reference dose and various low(More)
We quantitatively measured the physical and psychological burden of caregivers of 25 patients with senile dementia of Alzheimer type (SDAT). The Barthel Index (BADL, full score: 20 points) and the caregiver burden in terms of physical symptoms correlated well (r = -0.964, p < 0.001), as did the degree of abnormal behavior and caregiver burden in terms of(More)
