RATIONALE: Using MRI to guide placement of markers in the prostate may help in planning radiation therapy for patients with prostate cancer. PURPOSE: This clinical trial is studying the s...
The specific objective of this study is to compare the relative efficacy of the combination of a temporary iridium implant plus external beam irradiation versus standard external beam irra...
The evaluation of the radiological changes in localised or locally advanced prostate cancer after androgen deprivation therapy and external beam radiotherapy using multi-parametric MRI (mu...
The goal is to achieve the maximal radiotherapy tumor dose while sparing the health tissue and critical structures. On-board cone-beam CT (CBCT) scans are routinely acquired prior to dose ...
The purpose of this study is to test the safety of a new type of IG-IMRT called "ultra-hypofractionated IG-IMRT" where a higher dose of radiation is given to the tumor during each treatmen...
Only retrospective data is available for low dose rate (LDR) salvage prostate brachytherapy for local recurrence after external beam radiotherapy (EBRT). The primary objective of this prospective Phas...
Brachytherapy boost after external beam radiotherapy for intermediate and high-risk prostate cancer is presented as an attractive technique in numerous retrospective and prospective studies. Currently...
To develop a method for scoring online cone-beam CT (CBCT)-to-planning CT image feature alignment to inform prostate image-guided radiotherapy (IGRT) decision-making. The feasibility of incorporating ...
Fixed beam radiotherapy systems utilize couch movement and rotation instead of gantry rotation in order to simplify linear accelerator design. We investigate the ability to deliver fixed beam treatmen...
To improve efficiency, convenience, and cost, a prospective phase II trial was initiated to evaluate accelerated partial breast irradiation delivered with noninvasive image-guided breast brachytherapy...
The use of pre-treatment imaging modalities to position the patient, delineate the target, and align the beam of radiation to achieve optimal accuracy and reduce radiation damage to surrounding non-target tissues.
The use of an external beam of PROTONS as radiotherapy.
Computer-assisted mathematical calculations of beam angles, intensities of radiation, and duration of irradiation in radiotherapy.
The use of a heavy ion particle beam for radiotherapy, such as the HEAVY IONS of CARBON.
A collective term for interstitial, intracavity, and surface radiotherapy. It uses small sealed or partly-sealed sources that may be placed on or near the body surface or within a natural body cavity or implanted directly into the tissues.
