The effect of pre-dose on thermally and optically stimulated luminescence from α-AlO:C,Mg and α-AlO:C.

We report the effect of pre-dose on the thermoluminescence (TL) and optically stimulated luminescence (OSL) dose response of α-AlO:C,Mg and α-AlO:C. Before any luminescence measurement, the samples ...

Dosimetric superiority of IMRT with jaw tracking technique for whole esophagus and T-shaped field radiotherapy in advanced esophageal cancer.

For whole esophagus and T-shaped field radiotherapy using intensity modulated radiotherapy (IMRT) technique in advanced esophageal cancer, lower absorbed doses to lung and heart remains a challenge. T...

Validation of Effective Dose as a Better Predictor of Radiation Pneumonitis Risk than Mean Lung Dose: Secondary Analysis of a Randomized Trial.

To confirm the superiority of effective dose (D) over mean lung dose (MLD) for predicting risk of radiation pneumonitis (RP), using data from patients on a randomized trial of intensity-modulated radi...

Tumour size can have an impact on the outcomes of epidemiological studies on second cancers after radiotherapy.

Obtaining a correct dose-response relationship for radiation-induced cancer after radiotherapy presents a major challenge for epidemiological studies. The purpose of this paper is to gain a better und...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Radiotherapy where there is improved dose homogeneity within the tumor and reduced dosage to uninvolved structures. The precise shaping of dose distribution is achieved via the use of computer-controlled multileaf collimators.

CONFORMAL RADIOTHERAPY that combines several intensity-modulated beams to provide improved dose homogeneity and highly conformal dose distributions.

A treatment schedule in which the total dose of radiation is divided into large doses.

Mistakes committed in the preparations for radiotherapy, including errors in positioning of patients, alignment radiation beams, or calculation of radiation doses.

Biphasic dose responses of cells or organisms (including microorganisms) to an exogenous or intrinsic factor, in which the factor induces stimulatory or beneficial effects at low doses and inhibitory or adverse effects at high doses.
