BACKGROUND With the introduction of the electronic health record, physiotherapists too are encouraged to store their patient records in a structured digital format. The typical nature of a physiotherapy treatment requires a specific record structure to be implemented, with special attention to user-friendliness and communication with other healthcare(More)
BACKGROUND Repolarization abnormalities in the inferior-lateral leads in Brugada syndrome (BS) have not been systematically investigated. METHODS AND RESULTS 280 patients (age, 41+/-18 years; 168 males) with BS were screened for inferior-lateral repolarization abnormalities. The repolarization abnormalities were classified either as early repolarization(More)
BACKGROUND.: Lymphoedema of the operated and irradiated breast is a common complication following early breast cancer treatment. There is no consensus on objective diagnostic criteria and standard measurement tools. This study investigates the use of ultrasound elastography as an objective quantitative measurement tool for the diagnosis of parenchymal(More)
BRAF V600 mutant circulating cell-free tumor DNA (BRAF V600mut ctDNA) could serve as a specific biomarker in patients with BRAF V600 mutant melanoma. We analyzed the value of BRAF V600mut ctDNA from plasma as a monitoring tool for advanced melanoma patients treated with BRAF/MEK inhibitors. Allele-specific quantitative PCR analysis for BRAF V600(More)
There is no consensus on the definition of Breast Cancer Related Lymphedema of the arm (BCRL) because there are no agreed standards in measurement methods and diagnostic criteria. The main objective of this study is to compare mobile infrared optoelectronic volumetry with a Perometer with two commonly used methods for the evaluation of arm volume in(More)
The incidence of chronic subdural hematoma (CSDH) is increasing, but optimal treatment remains controversial. Recent meta-analyses suggest burr hole (BH) drainage is the best treatment because it provides optimal balance between recurrence and morbidity. Mini-craniotomy may offer supplementary technical advantages while maintaining equal or better outcomes.(More)
To retrospectively compare image quality of a lowered dose CT protocol to a standard CT protocol in children with suspicion of craniosynostosis. Forty-eight patients (age 0- 35 months), who presented with a cranial deformity underwent cranial 3D CT to assess sutural patency: between 2009 – 2010, 24 patients were imaged with a standard protocol (CTDIvol(More)
BACKGROUND We investigated the associations between daily sales of respiratory medication and air pollutants in the Brussels-Capital Region between 2005 and 2011. METHODS We used over-dispersed Poisson Generalized Linear Models to regress daily individual reimbursement data of prescribed asthma and COPD medication from the social security database against(More)
PURPOSE The goal was to assess in healthy participants the three-dimensional kinematics of the pelvis and the trunk during robot-assisted treadmill walking (RATW) at 0%, 30% and 50% body weight support (BWS), compared with treadmill walking (TW). METHODS 18 healthy participants walked (2 kmph) on a treadmill with and without robot assistance (Lokomat; 60%(More)
