BERT

Beta Energy Restenosis Trial. A trial assessing the safety and efficacy of balloon angioplasty followed by beta radiation treatment (90Sr) at 3 doses using the Novoste Beta-Cath delivery system Primary endpoint In-hospital MACE.
 
Conclusion
Beta-radiation post-angioplasty is safe and feasible, results in decreased restenosis due to a major change in post-angioplasty late lumen loss index.

BERT

Cardiology A clinical trial–Beta Energy Restenosis Trial—designed to evaluate the safety and feasibility of Novoste's Beta-Cath system at 3 radiation doses. See Beta-Cath System, Coronary artery disease.

Brief Description of T1 E1 ATM BERT Features: ATM Header Configuration
T1E1 ATM BERT support various BERT patterns; QRSS, 29-1, 211-1, 215-1, 220-1, 223-1, all ones, all zeros, 1:1, 1:7, alternate 1s and 0s, and user-defined pattern from 3 to 32 bits length.
With the emergence of new technologies and data rates (such as 8-gigabit Fiber Channel and the deployment of 40 and 100 GbE networks), it is imperative that end users purchase BERTs that feature the capabilities necessary to perform the desired test processes.
