This report introduces a framework for comparing radiotherapy treatment planning in multicentric in silico clinical trials. Quality assurance, data incompatibility, transfer and storage issues, and uniform analysis of results are discussed. The solutions that are given provide a useful guide for the set-up of future multicentric planning studies or public repositories of high quality data.

Stereotactic body radiotherapy is a highly technology-driven treatment modality. The wider availability of in-room imaging and advanced radiotherapy delivery techniques has led to more and more instit...
Glioblastoma is the most common primary brain tumor in adults. Standard therapy depends on patient age and performance status but principally involves surgical resection followed by a 6-wk course of r...
In this multicentric in silico trial we compared photon, proton, and carbon-ion radiotherapy plans for re-irradiation of patients with squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck (HNSCC) regarding do...
Optimizing Radiation Therapy Process The radiotherapy (RT) process has evolved over the years with innovations in CT and MR simulations, treatment planning, and treatment delivery. Image-Guided Radiot...
Despite technical developments in treatment delivery, radiation-induced lung toxicity (RILT) remains a crucial problem in thoracic radiotherapy. Clinically based RILT scores have their limitations, an...
This is a multicentric prospective cohort of all stage melanoma patients from AP-HP ,the largest consortium of University hospitals over Europe. 7 investigation sites (7 dermatological ser...
Breast radiotherapy RT used until the 1990s was clearly responsible for increased mortality due to long term cardiac complications. Since the 2000s, improvements have appeared in dose dist...
The aim of this study is to evaluate: Primary objective The primary objective of the present study is to evaluate the marginal bone level changes when partially edentulous patients, treat...
The purpose of the Protocol is the prevention of pelvic pressure ulcers within a care network of SCI patients whose general organization refers to the medical literature and the recommenda...
The therapeutic education of patients and their close relations is, as yet, poorly developed in France in the field of oncology, in particular for cancers of the upper aerodigestive tract....
Radiotherapy given to augment some other form of treatment such as surgery or chemotherapy. Adjuvant radiotherapy is commonly used in the therapy of cancer and can be administered before or after the primary treatment.
The plan, delineation, and location of actual structural elements of dentures. The design can relate to retainers, stress-breakers, occlusal rests, flanges, framework, lingual or palatal bars, reciprocal arms, etc.
The plan and delineation of dental prostheses in general or a specific dental prosthesis. It does not include DENTURE DESIGN. The framework usually consists of metal.
An approach, process, or methodology which emphasizes credible evidence and the best available scientific knowledge, judiciously integrated to achieve the best possible outcomes in structural design. For example, the design of a new OUTPATIENT CLINIC might incorporate a review of published research on outpatient clinic design, decisions on similar past projects, along with interviews with staff and consumers.
