The majority of nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) patients present at locally advanced stage. The poor prognosis has led to increasing interests in exploring the use of chemotherapy (CT). Intergroup-0099 trial was the first randomized trial comparing concurrent chemoradiotherapy (CCRT) with radiotherapy (RT) alone. Its outcome established the treatment(More)
BACKGROUND To determine appropriate timing of an adaptive radiation therapy (ART) replan by evaluating anatomic and dosimetric changes of target volumes and organs at risk (OARs) during intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) for nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC). METHODS Nineteen NPC patients were recruited. Each patient had repeat computed tomography(More)
Testing the fractionally integrated order of seasonal and non-seasonal unit roots is quite important for the economic and financial time series modelling. In this paper, Robinson test (1994) is applied to various well-known long memory models. Via Monte Carlo experiments, we study and compare the performances of this test using several sample sizes.
For the difficulties of the high dimensions and the complex environment in the video surveillance, a face detection method based on Locality Preserving Projections (LPP) incorporated with Adaboost is proposed. The LPP based features are extracted to reveal the local manifold structure of the faces using linear method. Then, the weak classifiers are(More)
Ultra-dense networks (UDNs) are one of the key enabling techniques for implementation of 5G wireless communication systems, and inter-cell interference is a major issue in UDNs. Coordinated Multipoint Joint Transmission (CoMP-JT) helps reduce inter-cell interferences. However, due to randomly and densely distributed access entities in UDNs, many challenging(More)
The operating principle of an electric pitch system of wind turbine is introduced in this paper, and three-phase PMSM (permanent magnetism synchronous motor) is chosen as the executive motor of the proposed system. TMS320F2812 is designed as the core of the electric propeller servo control system hardware based on the analysis of the servo variable pitch(More)
Intrathoracic endotracheal metastasis from a very distant site is extremely rare. We report the first case of such a disease in a 68-year-old man with nasopharyngeal carcinoma who presented with a cough and hemoptysis 34 months after finishing radiotherapy. Prior to tracheal metastasis, he developed a solitary metastasis in the lung and underwent(More)
This study sought to compare the differences in target volumes and dose distributions to the targets and organs at risk (OARs) between a four-dimensional computed tomography (4DCT)-based respiratory-gated intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) plan (PlanEOE) and a three-dimensional CT (3DCT)-based IMRT plan (Plan3D) in patients with non-small-cell(More)
