Diagnosis and Therapy of Iris Lesions.

The most common iris lesions are iris nevi, iris melanomas and iris pigment epithelium cysts. However, there is an abundance of rare differential diagnoses that have to be considered, including other ...

Long-term Outcomes After Proton Beam Irradiation in Patients With Large Choroidal Melanomas.

Although radiotherapy has been used more frequently in past decades for the management of large melanomas, long-term efficacy of proton beam irradiation (PBI) of large choroidal melanomas has not been...

Integrated Beam Orientation and Scanning-Spot Optimization in Intensity Modulated Proton Therapy for Brain and Unilateral Head and Neck Tumors.

Intensity Modulated Proton Therapy (IMPT) is the state-of-the-art method of delivering proton radiotherapy. Previous research has been mainly focused on optimization of scanning spots with manually se...

UK's first NHS high-energy proton beam facility.

With the UK's first high-energy Proton Beam Therapy Centre set to open next year at Manchester's The Christie, young patients with head and neck tumours, cancers close to the skull or spine, or a vari...

RADIATION PROTECTION MEASUREMENTS WITH THE VARIANCE-COVARIANCE METHOD IN THE STRAY RADIATION FIELDS FROM PHOTON AND PROTON THERAPY FACILITIES.

The microdosimetric variance-covariance method was used to study the stray radiation fields from the photon therapy facility at the Technical University of Denmark and the scanned proton therapy beam ...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The use of an external beam of PROTONS as radiotherapy.

Tumors of the choroid; most common intraocular tumors are malignant melanomas of the choroid. These usually occur after puberty and increase in incidence with advancing age. Most malignant melanomas of the uveal tract develop from benign melanomas (nevi).

A collective term for the various types of nevi and melanomas.

Tumors of the iris characterized by increased pigmentation of melanocytes. Iris nevi are composed of proliferated melanocytes and are associated with neurofibromatosis and malignant melanoma of the choroid and ciliary body. Malignant melanoma of the iris often originates from preexisting nevi.

The science and application of a double-beam transmission interference microscope in which the illuminating light beam is split into two paths. One beam passes through the specimen while the other beam reflects off a reference mirror before joining and interfering with the other. The observed optical path difference between the two beams can be measured and used to discriminate minute differences in thickness and refraction of non-stained transparent specimens, such as living cells in culture.
