For prone breast treatment, daily image-guided radiation therapy (IGRT) allows couch shifting to correct breast position relative to the treatment field. This work investigates the dosimetric effect o...
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)-guided radiation therapy (RT) treatment planning is limited by the fact that the electron density distribution required for dose calculation is not readily provided by...
Over the past 20 years, PET/CT has had many technological and developmental advancements for patient care. PET/CT has evolved from solely used as a diagnosis and staging tool to now having an impact o...
Mesenteric masses can considerably shift positions between fractions of radiation therapy (RT). With image-guided RT, we can adapt our treatment delivery daily to target the mass while avoiding surrou...
In adjuvant setting, breast cancer radiotherapy volumes include whole mammary gland or chest wall, and when indicated, nodal area such as axilla, supraclavicular, and internal mammary chain. An accura...
RATIONALE: CT scans and treatment-planning systems may help in planning radiation therapy for patients with non-small cell lung cancer. PURPOSE: This clinical trial is studying image-guid...
To determine if the Clarity 3DUS (3D Ultrasound) system can be used by multiple individuals to acquire 3DUS images and produce consistent TB (Tumor Bed) shifts for breast IGRT (Image-Guide...
The purpose of the study is to determine if Image-Guided Radiation Therapy has less side effects than standard radiation therapy, without affecting the success of radiation treatment and t...
The study is designed to determine whether daily image guidance and motion assessment/control will allow treatment of poor performance status patients with stage II-IV NSCLC, who would ben...
The purpose of this study is: - Initial evaluation of the clinical effectiveness of Image Guided Transcutaneous Electrical Stimulation (TENS) device for treatment of non-specific ...
The use of pre-treatment imaging modalities to position the patient, delineate the target, and align the beam of radiation to achieve optimal accuracy and reduce radiation damage to surrounding non-target tissues.
Radiotherapy where cytotoxic radionuclides are linked to antibodies in order to deliver toxins directly to tumor targets. Therapy with targeted radiation rather than antibody-targeted toxins (IMMUNOTOXINS) has the advantage that adjacent tumor cells, which lack the appropriate antigenic determinants, can be destroyed by radiation cross-fire. Radioimmunotherapy is sometimes called targeted radiotherapy, but this latter term can also refer to radionuclides linked to non-immune molecules (see RADIOTHERAPY).
Preliminary cancer therapy (chemotherapy, radiation therapy, hormone/endocrine therapy, immunotherapy, hyperthermia, etc.) that precedes a necessary second modality of treatment.
Drug therapy given to augment or stimulate some other form of treatment such as surgery or radiation therapy. Adjuvant chemotherapy is commonly used in the therapy of cancer and can be administered before or after the primary treatment.
A treatment program based on manipulation of the patient's environment by the medical staff. The patient does not participate in planning the treatment regimen.
