Brain Computer Interfaces (BCIs) have focused on several areas, of which motor substitution has received particular interest. Whereas open-source BCI software is available to facilitate cost-effective collaboration between research groups, it mainly focuses on communication and computer control. We developed an open-source and cross-platform framework,(More)
Bringing evidence to practice is a key issue in modern medicine. The key barrier to information searching is time. Clinical decision support systems (CDSS) can improve guideline adherence. Mounting evidence exists that mobile CDSS on handheld computers support physicians in delivering appropriate care to their patients. Subaxial cervical spine injuries(More)
BACKGROUND The role of extent of tumor resection in improving outcome for patients with glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) is still under debate. OBJECTIVE To analyze intraobserver and interobserver agreement of manual segmentation as a method for volumetric assessment of GBM resection. METHODS Three observers performed volumetric assessment of preoperative(More)
In the fall of 1999, the Institute of Medicine released "To Err is Human: Building a Safer Health System," a sobering report on the safety of the American healthcare industry. This work and others like it have ushered in an era where the science of quality assurance has quickly become an integral facet of the practice of medicine. One critical component of(More)
BACKGROUND Although the added value of increasing extent of glioblastoma resection is still debated, multiple technologies can assist neurosurgeons in attempting to achieve this goal. Intraoperative magnetic resonance imaging (iMRI) might be helpful in this context, but to date only one randomized trial exists. METHODS We included 14 adults with a(More)
