Prospective Assessment of Radiation-induced Heart Injury in Left-sided Breast Cancer

This study is to prospectively investigate the cardiac dose-sparing effect and clinical benefit of deep inspiration breath-hold (DIBH) technique. Patients with left-sided breast cancer tre...

Active Breathing Coordinator-based vs VisionRT-based Deep Inspiration Breath-hold for Radiation for Breast Cancer

Female patients treated with radiation for left-sided breast malignancy will undergo alternate fractions of Active Breathing Coordinator (ABC)-assisted and VisionRT-assisted Deep Inspirati...

Assessment of Left-sided Cardiac Sparing Through the Use of 3-dimensional Surface Matching-based Deep Inspiration Breath Hold and Active Breathing Control

The standard treatment for breast cancer is surgery followed by adjuvant breast radiation therapy in most cases. For left sided breast cancers, the heart dose delivered by the radiation tr...

Assessment of 2 Different Techniques for Suppression of Respiratory Motion in Lung Cancer Treatment With Proton Therapy Using Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)

Since 1996 proton therapy has been applied very successfully at the Paul Scherrer Institute in Switzerland to irradiate deep-seated, stationary tumors. In order to treat tumors within an o...

Radiotherapy Delivery in Deep Inspiration for Pediatric Patients

TEDDI is a non-randomised phase II trial in Scandinavia. All pediatric patients, referred for radiotherapy in the thorax or abdomen and irrespective of diagnosis, are eligible. Deep inspi...

Deep inspiration breath hold in breast cancer: Development and analysis of a patient experience questionnaire.

Evidence that Deep Inspiration Breath Hold (DIBH) can reduce cardiac dose during left-sided breast radiation therapy (RT) has led to widespread uptake of this technology. There is a paucity of publish...

Dose variability in different lymph node levels during locoregional breast cancer irradiation: the impact of deep-inspiration breath hold.

Aim of the present analysis was to evaluate the movement and dose variability of the different lymph node levels of node-positive breast cancer patients during adjuvant radiotherapy (RT) with regiona...

Ultrafast pediatric chest computed tomography: comparison of free-breathing vs. breath-hold imaging with and without anesthesia in young children.

General anesthesia (GA) or sedation has been used to obtain good-quality motion-free breath-hold chest CT scans in young children; however pulmonary atelectasis is a common and problematic accompanime...

Validation of cardiac magnetic-resonance-derived left ventricular strain measurements from free-breathing motion-corrected cine imaging.

Myocardial strain is an important measure of cardiac function and can be assessed on cardiac magnetic resonance (MR) through the current gold standard of breath-held segmented steady-state free preces...

AlignRT and Catalyst™ in whole-breast radiotherapy with DIBH: Is IGRT still needed?

Surface guided radiotherapy (SGRT) is reported as a feasible setup technique for whole-breast radiotherapy in deep inspiration breath hold (DIBH), but position errors of bony structures related to dee...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Abnormal accumulation of lymph in the arm, shoulder and breast area associated with surgical or radiation breast cancer treatments (e.g., MASTECTOMY).

Metastatic breast cancer characterized by EDEMA and ERYTHEMA of the affected breast due to LYMPHATIC METASTASIS and eventual obstruction of LYMPHATIC VESSELS by the cancer cells.

An involuntary or voluntary pause in breathing, sometimes accompanied by loss of consciousness.

A infiltrating (invasive) breast cancer, relatively uncommon, accounting for only 5%-10% of breast tumors in most series. It is often an area of ill-defined thickening in the breast, in contrast to the dominant lump characteristic of ductal carcinoma. It is typically composed of small cells in a linear arrangement with a tendency to grow around ducts and lobules. There is likelihood of axillary nodal involvement with metastasis to meningeal and serosal surfaces. (DeVita Jr et al., Cancer: Principles & Practice of Oncology, 3d ed, p1205)

A deoxycytidine derivative and fluorouracil PRODRUG that is used as an ANTINEOPLASTIC ANTIMETABOLITE in the treatment of COLON CANCER; BREAST CANCER and GASTRIC CANCER.
