With increasing use of radiation for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) through trans-arterial radioembolization (TARE) and stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT), there is concern for increased radia...
The objective of this study was to characterize patients at an increased risk of distant metastasis (DM) following stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) for stage I non-small cell lung cancer (NS...
Retrospective evaluation of stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) in patients with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC).
To evaluate feasibility and efficacy of Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy (SBRT) for unresectable liver metastasis in oligometastatic patients.
Stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) for early stage non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) is a standard of care for medically inoperable patients. Our aim was to compare Common Terminology Criteri...
This pilot clinical trial studies the effects of stereotactic body radiation therapy followed by surgery in treating patients with stage I-IIIA non-small cell lung cancer. Stereotactic bod...
This pilot trial will study the safety and feasibility of using stereotactic body radiation therapy as a bridge-to-transplant for patients with hepatocellular carcinoma and advanced cirrho...
This phase I/II trial studies the side effects and best dose of stereotactic body radiation therapy while using intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) planning to help avoid radiatio...
The proposed study is a single site, prospective, randomized pilot study to assess the feasibility of recruitment of patients into a trial evaluating the efficacy and tolerability of selec...
This trial studies the side effects of single fraction stereotactic body radiation therapy after surgery in treating patients with non-small cell lung cancer. Standard radiation for lung c...
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.
Preliminary cancer therapy (chemotherapy, radiation therapy, hormone/endocrine therapy, immunotherapy, hyperthermia, etc.) that precedes a necessary second modality of treatment.
Organs which might be damaged during exposure to a toxin or to some form of therapy. It most frequently refers to healthy organs located in the radiation field during radiation therapy.
Drugs used to protect against ionizing radiation. They are usually of interest for use in radiation therapy but have been considered for other, e.g. military, purposes.
A therapeutic approach, involving chemotherapy, radiation therapy, or surgery, after initial regimens have failed to lead to improvement in a patient's condition. Salvage therapy is most often used for neoplastic diseases.
