This randomized phase III trial studies how well hypofractionated radiation therapy works compared to conventional radiation therapy after surgery in treating patients with prostate cancer...
This randomized phase III trial studies how well hypofractionated radiation therapy works in preventing recurrence in patients with stage IIa-IIIa cancer who have undergone mastectomy. Hyp...
This phase II trial studies how well hypofractionated radiation therapy works in treating participants with prostate cancer high-risk features following radical prostatectomy. Hypofraction...
This phase II trial studies how well hypofractionated radiation therapy works in treating patients with stage 0-IIB breast cancer. Hypofractionated radiation therapy delivers higher doses ...
The primary objective of this study is to determine whether lymphedema rates are decreased in patients requiring regional nodal irradiation (RNI) who receive hypofractionated radiation as ...
The aim of this guideline is to present recommendations regarding moderately hypofractionated (240-340 cGy per fraction) and ultrahypofractionated (500 cGy or more per fraction) radiation therapy for ...
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 co...
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 ...
Hypofractionated whole-breast radiation therapy (RT) has proved to be equivalent to conventionally fractionated RT in multiple randomized trials. There is controversy regarding its use in younger wome...
Oligometastatic disease has emerged as a potentially curable state in the spectrum of cancer progression. Aggressive local therapy such as stereotactic ablative radiation therapy (SABR) may improve on...
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.
Drugs used to potentiate the effectiveness of radiation therapy in destroying unwanted cells.
