      PURPOSE: The aim of the study was to investigate rapid prototyping technology for the production of patient-specific, cost-effective liquid fillable phantoms directly from patient CT data. METHODS: Liver, spleen, and kidney ...
    • Feasibility of using ultrasound for real-time tracking during radiotherapy. 

      Hsu, A; Miller, NR; Evans, PM; Bamber, JC; Webb, S (2005-06)
      This study was designed to examine the feasibility of utilizing transabdominal ultrasound for real-time monitoring of target motion during a radiotherapy fraction. A clinical Acuson 128/XP ultrasound scanner was used to ...
    • Flexible Data Analysis Pipeline for High-Confidence Proteogenomics. 

      Weisser, H; Wright, JC; Mudge, JM; Gutenbrunner, P; Choudhary, JS (2016-12-02)
      Proteogenomics leverages information derived from proteomic data to improve genome annotations. Of particular interest are "novel" peptides that provide direct evidence of protein expression for genomic regions not previously ...
    • Identifying Genetic Dependencies in Cancer by Analyzing siRNA Screens in Tumor Cell Line Panels. 

      Campbell, J; Ryan, CJ; Lord, CJ (2018)
      Loss-of-function screening using RNA interference or CRISPR approaches can be used to identify genes that specific tumor cell lines depend upon for survival. By integrating the results from screens in multiple cell lines ...
    • Implementing diffusion-weighted MRI for body imaging in prospective multicentre trials: current considerations and future perspectives. 

      deSouza, NM; Winfield, JM; Waterton, JC; Weller, A; Papoutsaki, M-V; Doran, SJ; Collins, DJ; Fournier, L; Sullivan, D; Chenevert, T; Jackson, A; Boss, M; Trattnig, S; Liu, Y (2018-03)
      For body imaging, diffusion-weighted MRI may be used for tumour detection, staging, prognostic information, assessing response and follow-up. Disease detection and staging involve qualitative, subjective assessment of ...
    • Improving the efficiency of breast radiotherapy treatment planning using a semi-automated approach. 

      Mitchell, RA; Wai, P; Colgan, R; Kirby, AM; Donovan, EM (2017-01)
      OBJECTIVES: To reduce treatment planning times while maintaining plan quality through the introduction of semi-automated planning techniques for breast radiotherapy. METHODS: Automatic critical structure delineation was ...
    • NucliTrack: an integrated nuclei tracking application. 

      Cooper, S; Barr, AR; Glen, R; Bakal, C (2017-10-15)
