Temporal reliability of cytokines and growth factors in EDTA plasma.
BMC Res Notes (2010)
We assessed the temporal reliability of CRP, 22 cytokines and their soluble receptors (IL-1α, IL-1β, IL-1RA, IL-2, sIL-2R, IL-4, IL-5, IL-6, sIL-6R, IL-7, IL-8, IL-10, IL-12p40, IL-12p70, IL-13, IL-15, IL-17, TNFα, sTNF-R1, sTNF-R2, IFNα, IFNγ) and eight growth factors (GM-CSF, EGF, bFGF, G-CSF...
A support vector machine (SVM) for predicting preferred treatment position in radiotherapy of patients with breast cancer.
Med Phys 37(10):5341-50 (2010)
The authors' study showed that a feature-based classifier is feasible for predicting the preferred treatment position, based on features extracted from prone CT scans. The two-stage classifier achieved very high specificity at an acceptable expense of sensitivity....
3D meshless prostate segmentation and registration in image guided radiotherapy.
Audio, Transactions of the IRE Professi... 12(Pt 1):43-50 (2009)
We developed a fast segmentation-registration-segmentation framework to accurately and efficiently delineate the clinically critical objects in Cone Beam CT images obtained during radiation treatment. The proposed framework started with deformable models automatically segmenting the prostate, bladde...
