We develop techniques that make authenticated directories efficient and scalable toward the goal of managing tens of billions of objects in a single directory. Internet storage services have already realized this scale: Amazon's S3 contained more than 52 billion objects as of April 2009 [1]. Our contributions include defining on-disk, block-oriented data(More)
We present a storage management framework for Web 2.0 services that places users back in control of their data. Current Web services complicate data management due to data lock-in and lack usable protection mechanisms, which makes cross-service sharing risky. Our framework allows multiple Web services shared access to a single copy of data that resides on a(More)
PURPOSE To study whether esophageal FDG activity changes by time of mid-course of fractionated radiotherapy (RT), and whether these changes are associated with radiation esophagitis in patients with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). METHODS Fifty patients with stage I-III NSCLC were enrolled prospectively and, all received ≥60 Gy RT. FDG-PET/CT scans(More)
OBJECTIVE This study aimed to (1) compare the agreement of two evaluation methods of metabolic response in patients with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) and determine their prognostic value and (2) explore an optimal cutoff of metabolic reduction to distinguish a more favorable subset of responders. METHODS This is a secondary analysis of prospective(More)
We present an update-efficient authenticated dictionary towards the goal of providing public verification of outsourced dynamic geospatial data consolidated from a dynamic set of contributing sources. We introduce an on-disk authenticated bucket-based PR-quadtree for point and range queries over multiple attributes with minimal tree realignment upon(More)
