Misconceptions associated with radiotherapy (RT) may affect the patient's choice to undergo or not undergo RT. In this study, the level of awareness and perceptions about radiation and RT, as well as their impact on the use of RT, were assessed.

Lung cancer survival after radiotherapy remains poor and greater knowledge of normal tissue risk factors is needed to further optimise treatments. In this work, we investigate tumour laterality in a l...
The benefit of adjuvant radiotherapy (AR) or salvage radiotherapy (SR) after prostatectomy is still unclear. We wanted to compare both types of radiotherapy after prostatectomy in terms of oncological...
Prostate bed radiotherapy is a standard treatment after radical prostatectomy. Recent evidence suggests that, for patients with a PSA > 0.34 ng/ml, the radiotherapy treatment volume should inclu...
Lymphopenia has been associated with poor outcomes in cancer patients. We sought to describe the lymphocyte kinetics in patients who received radiotherapy; to identify factors associated with the end ...
Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women globally and radiation therapy is a cornerstone of its treatment. However, there is an enormous shortage of radiotherapy staff, especially in low- and ...
Breast radiotherapy RT used until the 1990s was clearly responsible for increased mortality due to long term cardiac complications. Since the 2000s, improvements have appeared in dose dist...
Men with prostate cancer with Gleason Score of 8 or greater or clinical/radiographic evidence of T3 disease will be considered for this trial.
To determine the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) of AZD6244 or AZD2171 when combined with pre-operative capecitabine and radiotherapy in patients with locally advanced rectal cancer.
This prospective interventional study aims at evaluating the safety and efficacy of an adjuvant radiation treatment in cases of muscle-invasive bladder cancer, submitted to radical cystect...
The purpose of this study is to development of more effective treatment tactics of the stereotactic radiotherapy and radiosurgery alone and together with classic radiation therapy in prima...
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.
The total amount of radiation absorbed by tissues as a result of radiotherapy.
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.
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).
Computer-assisted mathematical calculations of beam angles, intensities of radiation, and duration of irradiation in radiotherapy.
