Delivery efficiency of an Elekta linac under gated operation.
(Journal of applied clinical medical physics, 2014-09-08)
In this study, we have characterized the efficiency of an Elekta linac in the delivery of gated radiotherapy. We have explored techniques to reduce the beam-on delay and to improve the delivery efficiency, and have investigated ...
An automated method for comparing motion artifacts in cine four-dimensional computed tomography images.
(Journal of applied clinical medical physics, 2012-11-08)
The aim of this study is to develop an automated method to objectively compare motion artifacts in two four-dimensional computed tomography (4D CT) image sets, and identify the one that would appear to human observers with ...
Antagonists of the system L neutral amino acid transporter (LAT) promote endothelial adhesivity of human red blood cells.
(Thrombosis and haemostasis, 2017-06)
The system L neutral amino acid transporter (LAT; LAT1, LAT2, LAT3, or LAT4) has multiple functions in human biology, including the cellular import of S-nitrosothiols (SNOs), biologically active derivatives of nitric oxide ...
Sleep Disorders in Childhood Neurogenetic Disorders
Genetic advances in the past three decades have transformed our understanding and treatment of many human diseases including neurogenetic disorders. Most neurogenetic disorders can be classified as "rare disease," ...
Red blood cell phenotype fidelity following glycerol cryopreservation optimized for research purposes.
(PloS one, 2018-01)
Intact red blood cells (RBCs) are required for phenotypic analyses. In order to allow separation (time and location) between subject encounter and sample analysis, we developed a research-specific RBC cryopreservation protocol ...
Global traumatic stress: Hypothetical events and possible solutions
The purpose of this article is to heighten awareness of the potential psychiatric consequences of a global traumatic event such as widespread use of weapons of mass destruction, encounter with an extraterrestrial life form, ...

Psychosocial Assessment of Candidates for Transplantation (PACT) Score Identifies High Risk Patients in Pediatric Renal Transplantation.
(Frontiers in pediatrics, 2019-01)
Background: Currently, there is no standardized approach for determining psychosocial readiness in pediatric transplantation. We examined the utility of the Psychosocial Assessment of Candidates for Transplantation (PACT) ...
Variation Among Patients With Crohn's Disease in Benefit vs Risk Preferences and Remission Time Equivalents.
(Clinical gastroenterology and hepatology : the official clinical practice journal of the American Gastroenterological Association, 2019-05-14)
BACKGROUND & AIMS:Patients with Crohn's disease (CD) must make decisions about their treatment. We aimed to quantify patients' preferences for different treatment outcomes and adverse events. We also evaluated the effects ...
