Occurrence of phosphenes in patients undergoing proton beam therapy for ocular tumor.

Phosphenes are frequently reported by patients irradiated in the head and neck area. The aim of the present study was to characterize and investigate potential mechanisms of proton beam therapy (PBT)-...

Normal liver tissue change after proton beam therapy.

Normal liver tissue changes after proton beam therapy (PBT) were investigated in patients at 1 and 2 years after the therapy.

Maintenance of multidomain neurocognitive functions in pediatric patients after proton beam therapy: A prospective case-series study.

Proton Beam Therapy (PBT) was developed to minimize the harmful results of radiation therapy as treatment for brain tumors. This study examined the neurocognitive outcomes of PBT in pediatric patients...

Assessing endocrine and immune parameters in human immunodeficiency virus-infected patients before and after the immune reconstitution inflammatory syndrome.

Objective The present study compares immune and endocrine parameters between HIV-infected patients who underwent the Immune Reconstitution Inflammatory Syndrome (IRIS-P) during antiretroviral therapy ...

Technical Note: Experimental verification of magnetic field induced beam deflection and Bragg peak displacement for MR-integrated proton therapy.

Given its sensitivity to anatomical variations, proton therapy is expected to benefit greatly from integration with magnetic resonance imaging for on-line anatomy monitoring during irradiation. Such a...

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.
