Assessing the Development of Artificial Intelligence Technologies In Radiation Therapy and Targeting Irregular Masses

Eric Bear, Jessica Singh, and Michael Wahrman   ABSTRACT The purpose of this paper is to evaluate the use of artificial intelligence in the medical use of particle accelerators for both treatment (radiation therapy) and imaging. We will first discuss the implications of artificial intelligence (AI) on particle accelerators, starting with basic control mechanisms and then moving to complex systems such as neural networking. AI has the potential to increase efficiency and precision in all […]

A New Signaling Pathway in Diamond Blackfan Anemia

Sriya Kudaravalli Diamond Blackfan Anemia (DBA) is blood disease in which the bone marrow malfunctions and fails to make enough erythrocytes, or red blood cells. Inherited in an autosomal dominant pattern, DBA affects approximately five to seven million infants globally, and about half of the DBA patients possess physical abnormalities, such as microcephaly, hypertelorism, Ptosis, micrognathia, webbed neck, absent thumbs, cataracts, and glaucoma. In addition, affected patients have an increased risk of developing acute myeloid […]
