Title: Improving Radiotherapy by Visualizing Prior Patient Plans Abstract: Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT) is the most common type of radiation therapy, and in the U.S. it is most frequently used to treat prostate cancer. Given the prevalence of prostate cancer, improving prostate IMRT is a topic of great clinical significance. The research team, led [...]
SEATTLE, Nov. 1, 2011–Scientists studying data or compute-intensive problems require high bandwidth and computational resources, often from heterogeneous systems at different sites. But they don’t need these resources all the time. Ideally, a scientist studying the properties of new materials for producing solar energy, for example, would be able to grab a “slice” of a [...]
Prostate cancer, the most common form of cancer in U.S. men, is also one of the most treatable: 90 percent of patients who undergo intensity modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) in the early stages are disease free after five years, according to the journal Seminars in Radiation Oncology.Launch Featurette
A grant from the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) will enable RENCI and Duke University to develop a system that aggregates and visualizes historical medical data.
DURHAM, NC–RENCI experts in visualization, visual analytics, and data mining and management will work with three Duke University research teams—one in the School of Medicine and two in art, art history and visual studies—on projects to improve treatments for prostate cancer and to document the evolution of historic places, artwork and art markets.

She is currently the Harvey W Smith Professor of Biological Oceanography in the Division of Marine Science and Conservation of the Nicholas School of the Environment, Duke University, where she serves as Chair of the Division and Director of the Marine Laboratory.
Your medical history—and the histories of patients with similar conditions—can help you. That’s the foundation of a RENCI project to build an easy-to-use data analysis and visual dashboard to help doctors quickly determine the best treatment options for their patients.
Chapel Hill, NC—A research team involving the Renaissance Computing Institute (RENCI), Duke University and Infinera (Nasdaq: INFN) is one of 29 teams across the nation that will participate in the first phase of the National Science Foundation’s Global Environments for Network Innovation (GENI) project.
DURHAM, NC, September 16, 2008 – The Renaissance Computing Institute (RENCI) at Duke University will host an open house on Tuesday, Oct. 14, featuring its newly completed research environments.
CHAPEL HILL, NC, August 7, 2008 – It has been over 60 years since the world’s first all-electronic programmable computer, the ENIAC (or Electronic Numerical Integrator And Computer), was developed during World War II. A group of skilled mathematicians programmed the machine, but they were overlooked in the annals of computer history for one primary [...]
