Selective internal radiation therapy (SIRT) using yttrium-90 resin microspheres has been used together with systemic chemotherapy to treat patients with unresectable liver metastases. This study undertook the first systematic pooled assessment of the case profile, treatment and outcome in patients with initially inoperable colorectal hepatic metastases undergoing resection after systemic chemotherapy and SIRT.
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.
Toxicity, Tolerability, and Compliance of Concurrent Capecitabine or 5-Fluorouracil in Radical Management of Anal Cancer With Single-dose Mitomycin-C and Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy: Evaluation of a National Cohort.
Chemoradiation therapy (CRT) with mitomycin C (MMC) and 5-fluorouracil (5-FU) is established as the standard of care for the radical treatment of patients with anal squamous cell carcinoma (ASCC). The use of the oral fluoropyrimidine-derivative capecitabine is emerging as an alternative to 5-FU despite limited evidence of its tolerability and toxicity.
LBA-001Efficacy, tolerability and impact on quality of life of selective internal radiation therapy (with yttrium-90 resin microspheres) or sorafenib in patients with locally advanced hepatocellular carcinoma: The SARAH trial.
Radionuclide therapy (RNT) involves the selective delivery of radiation, emitted from radionuclides to tumors or target organs. The techniques of RNT are increasingly being used for the treatment of various tumors. The purpose of this article is to report on the current state of RNT, to clarify the issues of radiation protection associated with RNT, and to show future prospects.
Advances in multimodality imaging, providing accurate information of the irradiated target volume and the adjacent critical structures or organs at risk (OAR), has made significant improvements in delivery of the external beam radiation dose. Radiation therapy conventionally has used computed tomography (CT) imaging for treatment planning and dose delivery. However, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) provides unique advantages: added contrast information that can improve segmentation of the areas of interest,...
To revise the recommendation on the use of concurrent chemotherapy (CC) with palliative thoracic external beam radiation therapy (EBRT) made in the original 2011 American Society for Radiation Oncology guideline on palliative thoracic radiation for lung cancer.
The aim of this study was to examine the agreement of pretreatment Tc-macroaggregated albumin imaging performed for selective internal radiation therapy (SIRT) workup with Y percentage lung shunt (PLS) and regional hepatic distribution in subsequent post-therapy bremsstrahlung imaging.
To compare differences in patient radiation exposure (PRE) during transarterial yttrium-90 (Y) radioembolization (TARE) between transradial access (TRA) and transfemoral access (TFA).
High-energy beta emitters (Yttrium-90, Strontium-89 and Phosphorus-32) are nowadays increasingly used in therapeutic nuclear medicine. Beta particles and bremsstrahlung (photons produced when beta particles interact with materials) are harmful and should be shielded in order to protect the personnel and public from their harmful effects. This work determined the radiation yield, effective atomic number, range and associated with the interaction of beta particles with transparent xBi2O3-30B2O3-(70-x)TeO2 gla...
Eight patients with primary (n = 6) and metastatic (n = 2) disease of the liver underwent yttrium-90 radioembolization with glass microspheres using a combination of segmental and ipsilateral lobar approach to treat multifocal tumors containing a single dominant tumor. The superselective dose was administered to the dominant tumor, whereas lobar infusion was used for smaller tumors. Assuming uniform distribution, median dose to the segment with dominant tumor was 412.3 Gy and to the remaining lobe was 117...
To evaluate the effectiveness of low dose external beam radiation therapy to halt progression of localized periocular light chain (AL) amyloidosis, a clonal plasma cell disorder.
We analyzed factors associated with rectal toxicity after iodine-125 prostate brachytherapy (BT) with or without external beam radiation therapy (EBRT).
The use of computer simulation is arguably more widespread in other industries than in medicine. However, it has filtered into mainstream use in radiation therapy via a commercial product born from collaborative research partnership based in a radiation therapy department .The benefits and potentials of simulation training is discussed in this editorial from the perspective of an experienced radiation therapy physicist.
A hydrogel rectal spacer (HRS) is a medical device approved by the FDA to increase the separation between the prostate and rectum. We conducted a cost-effectiveness analysis of HRS use for reduction in radiation therapy (RT) toxicities in prostate cancer (PC) patients undergoing external beam radiation therapy (EBRT).
To perform a comparative analysis of three current management strategies for patients with lymph node metastases (LNM; pN1) following radical prostatectomy: observation, androgen deprivation therapy (ADT), and external beam radiation therapy (XRT)+ADT.
Surgery is the primary treatment modality for endolymphatic sac tumors (ELST). Two case examples are presented to highlight some rare instances when radiation therapy may be used. The outcomes following radiation therapy for ELST are controversial. This report systematically reviews those outcomes and compares results between external beam radiation and stereotactic radiosurgery.
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 mitigate radiation-associated toxicities. This is of utmost importance in the treatment of a pediatric patient. To best utilize these advanced techniques to mitigate radiation-induced growth abnormalities, the radiation oncologist should be equipped with a nuanced understanding of the anatomy of centers of grow...
To compile a list of genes that have been reported to be affected by external ionizing radiation (IR) and to assess their performance as candidate biomarkers for individual human radiation dosimetry.
Hyperammonemia is a rare adverse effect of 5-fluorouracil (5-FU) therapy, but can be very serious, even fatal. Physicians must be aware that hyperammonemic encephalopathy sometimes develops as an adverse event after 5-FU therapy.
The delivery of radiation therapy to cure gastrointestinal (GI) cancers is often limited by normal tissue toxicity of the GI tract. Studies using genetically engineered mice have demonstrated an essential role of the cyclin-dependent kinase (CDK) inhibitor p21 in protecting against the GI acute radiation syndrome (GI-ARS). Here, we examined the impact of the FDA-approved, selective CDK4/6 inhibitor palbociclib (PD-0332991) on the development of the GI-ARS induced by single dose vs. fractionated radiation in...
Patient immobilization systems are used to establish a reproducible patient position relative to the couch. In this study, the impact of conventional lok-bars for CT-simulation (CIVCO-bar) and treatment (iBEAM-bar) were compared with a novel lok-bar (mHM-bar) in tomotherapy.
The use of fracing has risen over the past decade and revolutionized energy production in the US. However, there is still an impetus for further optimization of the extraction of oil and natural gas from vast shale reservoirs. In this work, we discuss photonuclear production of yttrium-88 as a promising radiotracer for fracing operations. Single neutron knock-out from natural monoisotopic yttrium-89 is an inexpensive process resulting in high activity of Y with minimal impurities. MCNPX simulations were per...
