BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE To compare MRI-guided brachytherapy (BT) and two different dose prescriptions for robotic radiosurgery (RRS) in locally advanced cervical cancer. METHODS AND MATERIALS Eleven patients with FIGO stage IIB-IIIB cervical cancer underwent RRS instead of BT for various reasons. A total dose of 30 Gy was administered in five fractions.(More)
27 Longgterm surveys of the macrozoobenthos in the Barents Sea, along the Kola Meridian Section, showed the dependence of the species composition and quantitative parameters of the bottom fauna on the dynamics of the prevalent environmental factors [1–5]. The dynamics of bottom communities in genn eral and of the most abundant group of bottom inverr(More)
The Barents Sea is a transition zone between North Atlantic and Arctic waters, so its marine ecosystem is highly sensitive to climate dynamics. Understanding of marine biota response to climate changes is necessary to assess the environmental stability and the state of marketable biological resources. These processes are analyzed using a database from the(More)
The composition and distribution of near-bottom amphipods in the southern part of the central Barents Sea were studied based on quantitative materials collected by expeditions of the Murmansk Marine Biological Institute in 1996–1997. A total of 144 amphipod species (on average 13 ± 1 species per station) were found; the average biomass was 0.49 ± 0.07 g/m2,(More)
353 The coastal zone of the eastern Murman is subb jected to intense anthropogenic activity in the spheres of power engineering, oil and gas industry, fishery and tourism. Therefore, at present, the necessity arises of broadening the knowledge about the state of the envii ronment and, in particular, of the state of the bottom fauna in this poorly studied(More)
