EUS-guided RFA for Pancreatic Neoplasms

Radiofrequency ablation has been used for treatment of solid neoplasms of the liver, lung, kidney and adrenal. Recently, EUS-guided RFA has become available and the device allows EUS-guide...

BreAst Cancer and Cardiotoxicity Induced by RAdioTherapy: the BACCARAT Study

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...

Lung Dose in Patients Treated With Yttrium-90 for Hepatocellular Carcinoma

To Calculate the amount radiation the lung receives in patients receiving Yttrium-90 for Liver Cancer.

Protocol for Radiofrequency Ablation of Pulmonary Neoplasms

This research trial involves the development of a new treatment for lung tumors. It is for patients whose tumor cannot be surgically removed, have refused surgery, or the tumor has not res...

Dose escalation and associated predictors of survival with consolidative thoracic radiotherapy in extensive stage small cell lung cancer (SCLC): A National Cancer Database (NCDB) propensity-matched analysis.

Randomized studies have demonstrated a survival benefit for consolidative thoracic radiotherapy (TRT) in extensive stage (ES) small cell lung cancer (SCLC), however the radiation dose and optimal sele...

Salvage surgery for locally recurrent lung cancer: options for patients who have been treated with high dose radiotherapy.

A combination of chemotherapy and high dose radiotherapy is the cornerstone of the treatment of locally-advanced non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). For selected patients with early stage NSCLC, stere...

Validation of Effective Dose as a Better Predictor of Radiation Pneumonitis Risk than Mean Lung Dose: Secondary Analysis of a Randomized Trial.

To confirm the superiority of effective dose (D) over mean lung dose (MLD) for predicting risk of radiation pneumonitis (RP), using data from patients on a randomized trial of intensity-modulated radi...

Treatment planning based on lung functional avoidance is not ready for clinical deployment.

Current radiotherapy treatment planning for lung cancer does not account for regional differences in pulmonary function. Functional avoidance radiotherapy has been proposed to overcome this limitation...

Toxicity Related to Radiotherapy Dose and Targeting Strategy: A Pooled Analysis of Cooperative Group Trials of Combined Modality Therapy for Locally Advanced Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer.

Concurrent chemoradiotherapy(CRT) is the standard treatment for locally-advanced non-small-cell lung cancer(LA-NSCLC). This study was performed to examine thoracic radiotherapy(TRT) parameters and the...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.

CONFORMAL RADIOTHERAPY that combines several intensity-modulated beams to provide improved dose homogeneity and highly conformal dose distributions.

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 dose amount of poisonous or toxic substance or dose of ionizing radiation required to kill 50% of the tested population.

Tumors or cancer of the LUNG.
