Although the incidence of ruptured cerebral aneurysms is relatively small, when rupture occurs, morbidity and mortality are exceptionally high. The understanding of the pathological and physiological forces driving aneurysmal pathogenesis and progression is crucial. In this paper we analyze the occurrence of mirror cerebral aneurysms in 8 patients and(More)
The optimization process in intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) is closely related to an inverse problem and is therefore ill-conditioned. Besides, it is a computationally complex and intensive task, leading to numerical instabilities and solutions sensitive to high-frequency perturbations. For these reasons, a regularizer is needed for smoothing(More)
We present a new tool, Kampal ( http://kampal.unizar.es ), developed to help to analyze the academic productivity of a research institution from the point of view of Complex Networks. We will focus on two main aspects: paper production and funding by research grants. Thus, we define a network of researchers and define suitable ways of describing their(More)
The decomposition of a fluence matrix in step-and-shoot mode for intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) usually yields a large number of segments (NS) and, consequently, treatment time is substantially increased. In this paper, we propose a method for reducing the original NS in multileaf collimator segmentations to a user-specified quantity. The(More)
In intensity modulated radiation therapy (IMRT), intensity maps are computed from prescribed doses to target volumes, adding dose restrictions to the surrounding tissues. Those intensity (fluence) maps are discretized into matrices of natural numbers and translated to sequences of multileaf collimator (MLC) leaf movements, which will finally deliver the(More)
In intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT), fluence matrices obtained from a treatment planning system are usually delivered by a linear accelerator equipped with a multileaf collimator (MLC). A segmentation method is needed for decomposing these fluence matrices into segments suitable for the MLC, and the number of segments used is an important factor(More)
