Prospect of Using The Photoneutron Beam Component from High Energy linacs in BNCT, A Monte Carlo Simulation

A. Alfuraih; A. A. Alghamdi; A. Ma; N. M Spyrou EUROCON 2005 - The International Conference on "Computer as a Tool", 2005

One drawback in widely using neutron capture therapy (NCT) is the limited number of appropriate neutron source facilities. At present neutron sources for clinical NCT are mainly research reactors. However most reactors are not in close proximity to hospitals and their use for clinical trials can be difficult. Other suggested sources include dedicated single-purpose reactors, accelerator-based neutron sources and 252Cf ...

M. A. F. Kendall; F. V. Carter; T. J. Mitchell; B. J. Bellhouse 2001 Conference Proceedings of the 23rd Annual International Conference of the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society, 2001

This paper describes a comparative investigation into the impact penetration characteristics of DNA-coated gold micro-particles into human and porcine skin. This work is aimed at establishing the link between the particle parameters required in delivering particles to the epidermis of pigs and humans. The particles are delivered to the skin using the PowderJect concept: a method that accelerates vaccines and ...


Design of a new multi-projection imaging system for chest radiography

Amarpreet S. Chawla; Sarah Boyce; Ehsan Samei 2007 IEEE Nuclear Science Symposium Conference Record, 2007

Overlapping anatomical structures may confound detection of lung nodules in conventional projection chest radiography. To alleviate the visual clutter due to overlying anatomy, a dedicated digital multi-projection system for chest imaging was recently developed at the Radiology Department of Duke University. The system has a translating X-ray tube and acquires multiple projections of the same patient in rapid succession from ...


Therapeutic electrical stimulation with BIONs: clinical trial report

A. C. Dupont; S. D. Bagg; L. Baker; S. Chun; J. L. Creasy; C. Romano; D. Romano; R. L. Waters; C. L. Wederich; F. J. R. Richmond; G. E. Loeb Proceedings of the Second Joint 24th Annual Conference and the Annual Fall Meeting of the Biomedical Engineering Society] [Engineering in Medicine and Biology, 2002

We have been using microminiature, single-channel, leadless, RF-powered stimulators called BIONsTM, in three clinical trials to strengthen muscles weakened by disuse atrophy. Two of these studies are aimed at preventing and reversing shoulder subluxation in post-stroke patients. The third study is aimed at increasing knee function in patients with knee osteoarthritis. Results from these studies (a total of 14 patients ...


Standard electron cone ratio values for Varian, Siemens and Elekta (Philips) accelerators

D. S. Followill; R. C. Tailor; N. Hernandez; W. F. Hanson Proceedings of the 22nd Annual International Conference of the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society (Cat. No.00CH37143), 2000

The Radiological Physics Center (RPC), through its on-site dosimetry reviews at institutions participating in NCI cooperative clinical trials, has accumulated and measured electron cone ratio data for approximately 250 accelerators since 1987. For each make and model of accelerator, one can predict a cone ratio value within ±2% as a function of nominal incident energy (E0), with the exception of ...

  • No title

    Part II of Health Care Engineering begins with statistics on the occurrence of medical errors and adverse events, and includes some technological solutions. A chapter on electronic medical records follows. The knowledge management process divided into four steps is described; this includes a discussion on data acquisition, storage, and retrieval. The next two chapters discuss the other three steps of the knowledge management process (knowledge discovery, knowledge translation, knowledge integration and sharing). The last chapter briefly discusses usability studies and clinical trials. This two-part book consolidates material that supports courses on technology development and management issues in health care institutions. It can be useful for anyone involved in design, development, or research, whether in industry, hospitals, or government.

  • Future Technologies for Medical Applications

    The modern age of surgery began at the end of the nineteenth century because medicine discovered the Industrial Age, with its wealth of revolutionary technologies such as anesthesia, asepsis, microscopy, and new materials. At the close of the twentieth century, the Information Age diffused into medicine, and a revolution of even greater magnitude occurred. To understand the change it is necessary to look outside of medicine to society as a whole and find the underlying principles, and then apply them within our discipline. The medical record is now becoming electronic and nearly all of our imaging has changed from film (atoms) to digital images (bits). Medical education is using computer-aided instructions, CD-ROM, and VR to simulate and supplement cadaver and animal models. With the new research in robotics, even our hand motions are being changed in to electronic signals and being sent from one place to another. The future of medicine is no longer blood and guts, but bits and bytes. A commonality of information enables us to tie together a whole new concept of how medicine could evolve, like an entire medical ecosystem, whereby discoveries in micro-sensors permits new imaging devices, which in turn enable new forms of image-based surgery. It is an upward spiral, one discovery providing a giant step forward toward the next technology and escalating the whole changing system logarithmically. This could help explain why we are all so overwhelmed by the rapidity of our changing profession. Yet the younger generation of physicians-to-be are not so uncomfortable with the rapidly changing technologies. One of their fundamental tools is the ability to understand the world in the form of three-dimensional (3-D) visualization. There is a speculative scenario that can be used as a framework to illuminate the integrating power of this concept. It is referred to as the doorway t o the future and extrapolates to 20, 50 or perhaps 100 years into the future. As a patient visits her surgeon for a consult, she passes through the office door and, just as scanning is performed today by airport security, she has multiple imaging modalities scanning her (perhaps CT, MRI, ultrasound, and infrared). The data are all collected and then displayed as a 3-D image of her (looking like the Visible Human) but with not only correct anatomic structure but also all the biochemical and other data added to the correct organ systems. If an abnormality is seen, such as a colon mass, a virtual colonoscopy can be done on the image by flying through the colon with the same view as an actual colonoscopy. If a lesion is found, the image can be used for patient education, illustrating to the patient exactly what her specific problem is. At the time of surgery, an image can be imported onto the video monitor of laparoscopic colon resection, and with data fusion the two images displayed simultaneously as an intraoperative navigation tool (stereotactic navigation). At the postoperative follow up visit, the patient is scanned again, by comparing the postoperative with the preoperative datasets and using digital subtraction techniques, the difference between the two datasets is automatic outcomes analysis. Because the record is a dataset, it can be stored on a credit card (the U.S. military is using a prototype card called the MARC card) or kept on a Web server to be distributed worldwide over the Internet for consultation. The purpose of the this scenario is to provide an explanation of and rationale for why it is so important to understand how information can empower us, to show the looking glass through which the next-generation surgeon will be viewing the world. To bring the scenario out of the speculative and rhetorical and into the real world, the technologies that these views are presented in this chapter must be held accountable to the scrutiny of science. Only when these new discoveries are properly evaluated with rigorous testing and clinical trials can ...
