CT is an invaluable diagnostic tool for pediatric patients; however, concerns have arisen about the potential risks of ionizing radiation associated with diagnostic imaging in young patients, particul...
Excellent Locoregional Control and Mild Late Toxicity after Reducing Target Volumes and Radiation Doses in Locoregionally Advanced Nasopharyngeal Carcinoma Patients Treated with Induction Chemotherapy (IC) Followed by Concurrent Chemoradiotherapy: Ten-Year Results of a Phase II Study.
To evaluate the long-term locoregional control, failure patterns and late toxicity after reducing the target volume and radiation dose in locoregionally advanced nasopharyngeal carcinoma (LANPC) patie...
With the increasing use of advanced radiation techniques such as intensity modulated radiation therapy, stereotactic radiation therapy, and proton therapy, radiation oncologists now have the tools to ...
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...
The purpose of this study is to assess new low radiation dose techniques for clinical PET/CT scans through intra-individual comparison between a clinical, standard dose scan and a low-dose...
The purpose of this trial is to pilot reducing the duration of radiation treatment for lung cancer patients from 6 to 5 weeks using tomotherapy. Specific patient doses will be based on tum...
RATIONALE: Radiation therapy uses high-energy x-rays to kill tumor cells. Specialized radiation therapy that delivers a high dose of radiation directly to the tumor may kill more tumor cel...
RATIONALE: Selenomethionine may prevent or reduce mucositis, or mouth sores, in patients receiving chemotherapy and radiation therapy. It is not yet known whether selenomethionine is more ...
Research has shown that treatment with conventional radiation techniques and chemotherapy following mastectomy or breast conserving surgery has resulted in better rates of locoregional con...
Administration of the total dose of radiation (RADIATION DOSAGE) in parts, at timed intervals.
The dose amount of poisonous or toxic substance or dose of ionizing radiation required to kill 50% of the tested population.
The amount of radiation energy that is deposited in a unit mass of material, such as tissues of plants or animal. In RADIOTHERAPY, radiation dosage is expressed in gray units (Gy). In RADIOLOGIC HEALTH, the dosage is expressed by the product of absorbed dose (Gy) and quality factor (a function of linear energy transfer), and is called radiation dose equivalent in sievert units (Sv).
The relationship between the dose of administered radiation and the response of the organism or tissue to the radiation.
A treatment schedule in which the total dose of radiation is divided into large doses.
Pediatrics is the general medicine of childhood. Because of the developmental processes (psychological and physical) of childhood, the involvement of parents, and the social management of conditions at home and at school, pediatrics is a specialty. With ...
