To determine whether dose painting with volumetric modulated arc therapy (VMAT) for high-grade gliomas using 3,4-dihydroxy-6-[F]fluoro- l -phenylalanine (F-FDOPA) positron emission tomography (PET) co...
A new irradiation technique, volumetric-modulated Dynamic WaveArc therapy (VMDWAT), based on sequential non-coplanar trajectories, can be performed using the Vero4DRT. This planning study compared the...
Increasing radiation dose to the heart is associated with worse survival in stage 3 non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). We sought to evaluate the abilities of optimized volumetric modulated arc therap...
To evaluate the differences between conventional fractionated intensity-modulated radiotherapy (IMRT) and hypofractionated (HypoRT) volumetric modulated arc therapy (VMAT) in elderly women affected by...
Spatial Dose Patterns Associated with Radiation Pneumonitis in a Randomized Trial Comparing Intensity-Modulated Radiation Therapy with Passive Scattering Proton Therapy for Locally Advanced Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer.
Radiation pneumonitis (RP) is commonly associated with thoracic radiation therapy (RT), and its incidence is related to dose and volume of the normal lung in the path of radiation. Our aim was to inve...
Radiotherapy to the whole brain is standard treatment for cancer that has spread to the brain (brain metastases) as it treats both the metastases that can be seen on scans and the brain me...
This study compares the use of conventional radiotherapy technique with volumetric intensity-modulated radiotherapy (VMAT) in the treatment of painful cancer metastases. Half of the patien...
In this study the investigators treat PM oligometastatic patients with SBRT. Our objective is to evaluate rate of local control of treated lesions in patients treated with Intensity Modula...
Total body irradiation (TBI) is a standard part of the conditioning regimen for bone marrow transplantation (BMT). Several randomized trials have shown superior outcomes using TBI compared...
This research study is studying radiation therapy as a possible treatment for meningioma or tumor on the lining of the brain. The study drug or intervention involved in this research study...
CONFORMAL RADIOTHERAPY that combines several intensity-modulated beams to provide improved dose homogeneity and highly conformal dose distributions.
The dose amount of poisonous or toxic substance or dose of ionizing radiation required to kill 50% of the tested population.
A treatment schedule in which the total dose of radiation is divided into large doses.
The highest dose of a biologically active agent given during a chronic study that will not reduce longevity from effects other than carcinogenicity. (from Lewis Dictionary of Toxicology, 1st ed)
Administration of the total dose of radiation (RADIATION DOSAGE) in parts, at timed intervals.
