We compared differences in patterns of local-regional failure, and the influence of adaptive planning on those patterns, in patients given passive scattering proton therapy (PSPT) vs. intensity-modulated photon therapy (IMRT) for non-small cell lung cancer.

The goal of the present study is to estimate the rate of local/regional failure (LRF) following definitive surgery for early stage non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) (without postoperative radiation) ...
To assess the feasibility and efficacy of intensity-modulated radiation implemented with helical tomotherapy image-guided with daily megavoltage computed tomography for head and neck cancer.
Conventional 3-dimensional conformal radiation therapy (3DCRT) for head and neck cancer (HNC) can cause hyposalivation, leading to caries and tooth extraction-related osteoradionecrosis. Intensity-mod...
Advances in technology have expanded the use of intensity-modulated radiotherapy (IMRT). The goal of this study was to investigate trends in the utilization of IMRT for rectal cancer (RC) in USA.
Regional heterogeneities in contraction contribute to heart failure with reduced ejection fraction (HFrEF). We aimed to determine whether regional changes in myocardial relaxation similarly contribute...

This phase II trial studies how well intensity-modulated stereotactic radiation therapy works in treating patients with grade II-IV glioma. Stereotactic radiosurgery is a specialized radia...
CONFORMAL RADIOTHERAPY that combines several intensity-modulated beams to provide improved dose homogeneity and highly conformal dose distributions.

Measurement of the regional temperature of the body or an organ by infrared sensing devices, based on self-emanating infrared radiation.
A radiological stereotactic technique developed for cutting or destroying tissue by high doses of radiation in place of surgical incisions. It was originally developed for neurosurgery on structures in the brain and its use gradually spread to radiation surgery on extracranial structures as well. The usual rigid needles or probes of stereotactic surgery are replaced with beams of ionizing radiation directed toward a target so as to achieve local tissue destruction.
GILOTRIF (afatinib) is a kinase inhibitor indicated for the first-line treatment of patients with metastatic non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) whose tumors have epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) exon 19 deletions or exon 21 (L8...
