We aimed to compare three-dimensional conformal radiotherapy (3D-CRT) with intensity-modulated radiotherapy (IMRT) for the treatment of glioblastoma.
This article was published in the following journal.

Intensity-modulated radiotherapy versus three-dimensional conformal radiotherapy in rectal cancer treated with neoadjuvant concurrent chemoradiation: a meta-analysis and pooled-analysis of acute toxicity.
To compare the acute gastrointestinal (GI) and genitourinary (GU) toxicity profiles between intensity-modulated radiotherapy (IMRT) and three-dimensional conformal radiotherapy (3DCRT) in rectal cance...
This study evaluated the feasibility of applying volumetric-arc radiotherapy (VMAT) in standard curative radiotherapy for non-bulky cervical cancer using the central-shielding principle. Whole-pelvis ...
In this phase II study, we investigate clinical outcomes and tolerability of hypofractionated radiotherapy (HRT) combined with temozolomide (TMZ) to treat elderly patients with glioblastoma (GBM).
This study evaluated practice patterns, outcomes, and predictors of survival for elderly patients with glioblastoma (GBM) receiving definitive chemoradiotherapy (CRT) with either hypofractionated radi...
Radiochromic film is a very useful tool for 2D dosimetric measurements in radiotherapy because it is self-developing and has very high-spatial resolution. However, considerable care has to be taken in...
Prostate cancer is the most common malignancy in males, and radiotherapy is a commonly chosen treatment option for patients with localized disease. Technical innovations such as three-dime...
RATIONALE: Specialized radiation therapy, such as 3-dimensional conformal radiation therapy, that delivers a high dose of radiation directly to the tumor may kill more tumor cells and caus...
Positron Emission Tomography and Computed Tomography in Planning Treatment for Patients Undergoing 3-Dimensional Conformal Radiation Therapy for Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer That Cannot Be Removed by Surgery
RATIONALE: Diagnostic procedures, such as positron emission tomography and computed tomography, may help learn the extent of disease and allow doctors to plan 3-dimensional conformal radia...
This randomized phase II trial studies how well bevacizumab with or without radiation therapy works in treating patients with glioblastoma that has returned after a period of improvement. ...
RATIONALE: 3-dimensional conformal radiation therapy delivers a high dose of radiation directly to the tumor and may kill more tumor cells and cause less damage to normal tissue. PURPOSE:...
CONFORMAL RADIOTHERAPY that combines several intensity-modulated beams to provide improved dose homogeneity and highly conformal dose distributions.
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.
A work that reports on the results of a research study to evaluate interventions or exposures on biomedical or health-related outcomes. The two main types of clinical studies are interventional studies (clinical trials) and observational studies. While most clinical studies concern humans, this publication type may be used for clinical veterinary articles meeting the requisites for humans.
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.
Echocardiography amplified by the addition of depth to the conventional two-dimensional ECHOCARDIOGRAPHY visualizing only the length and width of the heart. Three-dimensional ultrasound imaging was first described in 1961 but its application to echocardiography did not take place until 1974. (Mayo Clin Proc 1993;68:221-40)
