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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

Efficacy of gefitinib and radiotherapy combination in Indonesian patients with lung adenocarcinoma.

Combinations of gefitinib and radiotherapy have been observed to have synergistic and anti-proliferative effects on lung cancer in vitro. In the clinical setting, patients who presented with respirato...

Diagnosis of Multiple Primary Intestinal-Type Adenocarcinoma in the Lung by 18F-FDG PET/CT.

A 74-year-old man with multiple soft tissue lesions in the lung, which were suspected to be metastatic neoplasms, underwent F-FDG PET/CT scan to detect primary malignancy. The images demonstrated that...

Cardiac dose is associated with immunosuppression and poor survival in locally advanced non-small cell lung cancer.

Studies have associated increased radiation therapy (RT) heart dose with cardiac toxicity. Others have correlated RT-related immunosuppression with worsened survival. Given the large vascular volumes ...

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.
