Evaluation of surface and shallow depth dose reductions using a Superflab bolus during conventional and advanced external beam radiotherapy.

The purpose of this study was to evaluate a methodology to reduce scatter and leakage radiations to patients' surface and shallow depths during conventional and advanced external beam radiotherapy. Su...

RADIOTHERAPY PROTON BEAM PROFILOMETRY WITH scCVD DIAMOND DETECTOR IN SINGLE PARTICLE MODE.

Proton radiotherapy requires precise knowledge of the volumetric dose distribution. In proton beam delivery systems, based on narrow pencil beams, a contribution from small doses in low-intensity regi...

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 ...

MONTE CARLO SIMULATION OF OUT-OF-FIELD ORGAN DOSES AND CANCER RISK IN TANZANIA FOR RADIATION THERAPY OF UNILATERAL RETINOBLASTOMA USING A 60Co UNIT.

The use of 60Co teletherapy unit for the treatment of unilateral retinoblastoma (Rb) patients is a very common procedure in many developing countries including Tanzania. The aim of this study was to e...

Use of Pulsed Low-Dose Rate Radiotherapy in Refractory Malignancies.

Most tumor cell lines exhibited low-dose hyperradiosensitivity (LDHRS) to radiation doses lower than 0.3 Gy. Pulsed low-dose rate radiotherapy (PLDR) took advantage of LDHRS and maximized the tumor co...

Single Dose Escalation and Multiple Dose Escalation Trial of an Intravenous Formulation of MRX-4

A Phase 1 study of the safety, tolerability, and pharmacokinetics of a new oxazolidinone antibiotic. In Part 1 cohorts of healthy adults will participate in a single dose escalation study ...

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.
