Every year, 1.7 million woman are diagnosed with breast cancer worldwide. Breast Conserving Surgery (BCS) – where not the whole breast but only the tumour is dissected – is the most common and preferable treatment for these woman. However, 20 to 55% of the patients’ needs a second surgery because of positive margins. A dissected tumour has a...

Driven by rising health care costs due to factors including advancing technology and an aging population, cost-effectiveness has become an increasingly important aspect of care delivery, with the operating room (OR) being a specific area of interest. By means of a surgical process model (SPM), OR systems can gain an understanding of clinical...

The Excimer Laser Assisted Non-Occlusive Anastomoses (ELANA) technique is used to create anastomoses between major arteries in the brain while avoiding the dangerous temporary occlusion of the cerebral blood ow. This decreases the risk of complica ons due to hypoxia of the brain, but the surgery is long and requires a highly skilled vascular...

To reduce the mortality rate of sepsis, treatment needs to be started as soon as possible. One should however first be sure about the occurrence of sepsis. Currently, the suspicion of sepsis in premature infants is based on non-specific physiological changes. The detection of alterations in the inter-heartbeat interval preceding sepsis can offer...

Introduction: Diarrhoea is currently the second major cause of child mortality, which mostly affects children in developing countries. Dehydration is the major risk involved with diarrhoea, which is therefore the actual cause of death in most cases. Currently there are no cheap and reliable methods for assessing dehydration, while dehydration...

Apnea of prematurity is one of the most common diagnoses in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. Frequent breathing pauses occur in almost all infants born at <28 weeks gestational age or with a birth weight of <1000g and can result in serious brain damage. Medicines are used to suppress the apnea but are not able to eliminate it. Manual tactile...

Introduction: Preterm neonates suffer frequent thermal alterations that result in increased morbidity and mortality rates. Thermal support is used to provide stability until thermal maturation is reached. The first manifestation of thermal control is peripheral vasoconstriction, estimated as the difference between central and peripheral...

DNA can function as a significant part of evidence in forensic investigation, because it can link a potential perpetrator to a crime. Even by skin contact, micro-traces of DNA-containing material can be transferred. This type of DNA is called ‘trace DNA’. When DNA is collected from an evidentiary item for forensic purposes, the goal is to...

Introduction: In this study, a novel anthropomorphic head phantom for quantitative image quality assessment in cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) is proposed. The phantom is composed of tissue equivalent materials (TEMs) which are suitable for ‘ home made’ fabrication methods such as silicone casting and 3D printing and equipped with inserts...

The transition from open surgery to laparoscopic procedures, which is motivated by the improved surgical outcomes and lower overall costs, limits however the amount of information the surgeon can have access to during surgery. To compensate for the lack of visual feedback and palpitation, which are not possible using only the laparoscope camera,...

In external beam radiation therapy (EBRT) for prostate cancer, prostate motion and, more generally, intra-fractional anatomical changes in the pelvic region can lead to significant plan efficacy degradation, possibly underdosing the target and overdosing the organs at risk (OARs). Since through image-guided radiation therapy (IGRT) it is...

To recover a mandible defect, the defect is resected and the resulting bone gap can be reconstructed by a fibula graft that shaped similar to the resected part of the mandible. Mandible resection and shaping of the fibula bone is assisted by computer-aided simulation and computer-aided manufacturing (CAS/CAM). In a nutshell, these techniques...

In some types of endovascular surgery on the aorta, a catheter needs to be placed in a renal artery to enable renal artery stenting. Therefore, a catheter and a medical guide wire are maneuvered through the vascular system and placed inside the renal artery. In one in eight patients, the renal artery is angulated ≤50°, which could cause the...

Introduction. Ultrasound is known for cheap, fast and non-invasive diagnosis of numerous injuries. Sport-related injuries in the ankle joint and rehabilitation after surgical intervention are badly diagnosable using traditional ultrasound. Bones surrounding the surface of the articular cartilage blocks the ultrasound pulse and hides the talar...

With the provision of essential surgical care millions of lives can be saved and this realization has reached the international agenda. There are however many obstacles that make it hard to provide safe, qualitative, affordable and accessible surgical care to the more than 4.8 billion people for whom this is currently out of reach. One of the...

Ultrasound imaging is known to be non-invasive, fast, and cost-effective. However, a drawback is its reflection on bone. Therefore, an alternative acoustic wave propagating technique is being developed that eventually should be able to diagnose osteochondral defects (OCDs) that are now often missed with conventional imaging techniques. A novel...
