We have studied the application of direct aperture optimization (DAO) as an inverse planning tool for breast IMRT. Additionally, we have analysed the impact of respiratory motion on the quality of the delivered dose distribution. From this analysis, we have developed guidelines for balancing the desire for a high-quality optimized plan with the need to(More)
A wide variety of optimization problems and techniques are used in radiation treatment planning. The problems typically involve large amounts of data, derived from simulations of patient anatomy and the properties of the delivery device. We investigate a three phase approach for their solution based on sampling of the underlying data that determines optimal(More)
We have studied the degree to which beamlet step-size impacts the quality of intensity modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) treatment plans. Treatment planning for IMRT begins with the application of a grid that divides each beam's-eye-view of the target into a number of smaller beamlets (pencil beams) of radiation. The total dose is computed as a weighted(More)
OBJECTIVE The posterior thigh region has been neglected as a donor site for free perforator flaps, likely due to difficulties in positioning the patient during surgery. This study describes the clinical application of the posterior thigh perforator flap based on the third perforating artery of the profunda femoris artery (PFA). METHODS The free posterior(More)
BACKGROUND Few clinical retrospective studies have reported the risk factors of pedicled flap necrosis in hand soft tissue reconstruction. The aim of this study was to identify non-technical risk factors associated with pedicled flap perioperative necrosis in hand soft tissue reconstruction via a multivariate logistic regression analysis. METHODS For(More)

OBJECTIVE To study the functional changes of median nerve after removing a certain bundle of it and to explore the functional reserve of median nerves. METHODS 220 three-month old SD rats were randomly divided into experimental groups and sham groups. And the experimental group was further divided as 1/8 group, 1/4 group, 1/3 group, 1/2 group, and 2/3(More)
