A standardized and reproducible method for processing lymph nodes is necessary to compare the results between centres and should be a prerequisite to any use of lymph node counts as a measure of the quality of PLND.
To alleviate the effects of such selfish or malicious nodes in MANETs, many researchers brought proactive security approaches like cryptography and authentication to improve the security level of MANETs.
Like their static counterparts, the mobile sensor nodes are likely to be constrained with limited battery charge, memory and processing capability as well as operate under a limited transmission range.
Diseases such as cancer lead to painless gradual growth in the lymph nodes.
Using the flooding broadcasting method can ensure that it has the maximum possibility to find the route in theory, but many unnecessary nodes are involved in forwarding process, this makes a large of redundant routing control packets existing in the network, which will cause 'broadcast storm' and transmission channel congestion [6,7].
Among the node-negative patients, 762 (16%) had 10 or fewer nodes removed, 1,709 (37%) had 11-20 nodes removed, 1,251 (27%) had 21-30 nodes removed, and 926 (20%) had more than 30 nodes removed.
Because of the high degree of clinical suspicion, total thyroidectomy with clearance of local neck nodes was carried out.
The existence of nodal metastases is the most important prognostic factor for colon cancer, and guidelines on how many nodes to sample range anywhere from 7 to 40, said Dr.
Rows 5 through 20 represent the 16 terminal nodes from column H in exhibit 1.
The surgeon removes only the nodes that initially absorb the dye.
Some clustered network solutions provide a single file system that can scale infinitely with no theoretical limit and spans multiple nodes within a cluster.
