Augmented reality (AR) promises to be a valuable tool for anatomical education since any given anatomical site can be studied dynamically in three dimensions (3D). Yet, it has not been used with case-based learning in medical education despite the latter's demonstrated benefits. <br/>This research, thus, investigates the potential benefit of 3D...

<b>Background</b>: The prevention of ventilator-induced lung injury (VILI) is an important topic in criticalcare. Lung overdistention is a great attributor to VILI. Regional evaluation of the pulmonary mechanicsis a relatively new method and is currently being studied using electrical impedance tomography (EIT)and computed tomography (CT)....

In patients with oral cavity cancer invading the mandible, a segmental bone resection is performed and the original contour of the mandible is reconstructed with a free fibula flap. Virtual surgical planning is performed prior to surgery to determine the locations and orientations of the osteotomy planes on the mandible and fibula. Currently,...

Introduction Fractures of the diaphysis of the radius and/or ulna are most common in children from 5 to14 years old and take up to 40% of all pediatric fractures. Patients with a diaphyseal fracture of the forearm can develop a malunion: healing of the bones in non-anatomical position. This can lead to pain, cosmetic differences and a limitation...

Introduction The current gold standard for preoperative planning of deep inferior epigastric artery perforator (DIEAP) flap breast reconstruction is assessment of perforator vessels on computed tomography angiography (CTA) or magnetic resonance angiography (MRA) images in two-dimensional (2D) planes on a 2D screen. This research investigates the...

Background and aim: The exact pathophysiology of a COVID-19 infection is still not completely understood, which complicates treatment of the disease. In order to clarify the pathophysiologic mechanisms and optimize treatment methods, monitoring of the sublingual microcirculation may be valuable. From studies in septic patients, we know that...

Lymphedema is the accumulation of protein-rich fluid in the intersitium (i.e., dermal backflow (DBF)), causing swelling. It is a commonly seen due to iatrogenic damage to the lymphatics after surgical and radiotherapeutic treatment of cancer. An important microsurgical treatment is lymphovenous bypass (LVB) surgery, during which a lymphatic...

Patients diagnosed with glioblastoma face poor prognosis, as the median survival from initial diagnosis is less than 15 months. Radiotherapy is considered to be one of the fundamentals of glioblastoma therapy and is given after maximum safe tumour resection or biopsy. Delineation of the gross tumour volume (GTV) and the clinical target volume ...

A low blood pressure (hypotension, as mean arterial pressure &lt; 65 mmHg) in patients on the intensive care unit (ICU) is associated with adverse outcomes and death. Proactive treatment with the use of a predictive alarm could improve patient outcome. The Hypotension Prediction Index (HPI) is a machinelearning algorithm that uses arterial blood...

Introduction Breast cancer is the most frequently diagnosed type of cancer in women in 2020. Treatment and prognosis of breast cancer is highly dependent on early and accurate diagnosis. In recent years, many studies have evaluated the use of artificial intelligence for the detection of breast cancer in mammographic images. Another imaging...

Introduction Near-infrared fluorescence (NIRF) imaging is a relatively novel development in colorectal liver metastases (CRLM) surgery which has proven to be an added value for the detection of new lesions and surgical guidance. However, new possibilities of NIRF imaging in CRLM surgery are yet to be explored. The fluorescent rim of indocyanine...

AimTreatment with Proton Beam Therapy (PBT) is highly complex due to a variety of activities integrated into the workflow to ensure treatment quality and patient safety. The effects of changes to the workflow with the intend to scale up a PBT facility are therefore hard to predict. The purpose of this study was to develop a forecasting...

<b>Introduction:</b>Timely personalized treatment of functional decline depends on early ambulant identification of persons at risk. Regularity of daily body acceleration, quantified by sample entropy (SampEn), is associated with fall risk and is a potential proxy for functional (biopsychosocial) resilience.<br/><b>Objective:</b> This cross...

To optimize treatment in patients with craniosynostosis, better<br/>understanding of the disease process is essential, for example using<br/>brain MRI analysis to study brain volume, brain perfusion, and<br/>brain micro-architecture. However, such analyses require image registration,<br/>which is challenging because of disease-related brain...

Surgical ablation is a well-accepted treatment for liver malignancies due to its ability to preserve the surrounding healthy liver tissue as opposed to surgical resection. Precise intraoperative localization of the lesion and correct needle placement are crucial factors for complete tumor ablation. These are difficult tasks due to interpatient...

Introduction Intracranial hypertension (IH) is a harbinger of secondary brain injury in patients suffering from traumatic brain injury (TBI), can be mitigated at the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) and is associated with a poor prognosis. Current clinical practice consists of treating IH once it has occurred, by medical or surgical interventions. This...
