Approach and assessment of automated stereotactic radiotherapy planning for early stage non-small-cell lung cancer

Intensity-modulated radiotherapy (IMRT) and volumetric-modulated arc therapy (VMAT) are standard physical technologies of stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT) that are used for patients with non-small-cell lu... Source: Biomedical Engineering Online

Effects of computer-assisted navigation versus the conventional technique for total knee arthroplasty on levels of plasma thrombotic markers: a prospective study

Venous thromboembolism (VTE) is a major sequela after total knee arthroplasty (TKA). We prospectively compared the differences in the perioperative plasma d-dimer and fibrinogen levels between the individuals und... Source: Biomedical Engineering Online

Measurement and application of patient similarity in personalized predictive modeling based on electronic medical records

Conventional risk prediction techniques may not be the most suitable approach for personalized prediction for individual patients. Therefore, individualized predictive modeling based on similar patients has em... Source: Biomedical Engineering Online

Heparinized silk fibroin hydrogels loading FGF1 promote the wound healing in rats with full-thickness skin excision

Silk fibroin hydrogel, derived from Bombyx mori cocoons, has been shown to have potential effects on wound healing due to its excellent biocompatibility and less immunogenic and biodegradable properties. Many stu... Source: Biomedical Engineering Online
