Currently the Planning Target Volume (PTV) and Planning Organs at Risk Volume (PRV) margins used for pediatric radiation treatments are empiric; therefore, a quantitative assessment of the...
Patients with primary head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC) planned for treatment with radiotherapy with or without chemotherapy in curative setting will be treated with an adaptiv...
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...
The purpose of this study is to improve discharge planning effectiveness by comparing two strategies [on-Demand Discharge Planning (DDP) vs. Routine Discharge Planning (RDP)], in terms of ...
Through close engagement with our patient and family member co-investigators, we have developed a video-based advance care planning aid for cancer patients and their family members who are...
Stereotactic ablative body radiotherapy (SABR) for lung tumors ≥5cm, can be associated with more toxicity. We investigated the relationship between dosimetry and toxicity and used a knowledge-based ...
Hypofractionated (>5 fraction) stereotactic radiotherapy (HSRT) may allow for ablative biologically equivalent dose to tumors with a lower risk of organ-at-risk (OAR) toxicity in central thoracic tumo...
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...
The planning of national radiotherapy (RT) services requires a thorough knowledge of the country's cancer epidemiology profile, the radiotherapy utilization (RTU) rates and a future projection of thes...
Radiotherapy treatment planning of complex radiotherapy techniques, such as Intensity Modulated Radiotherapy (IMRT) and Volumetric Modulated Arc Therapy (VMAT), is a resource-intensive process requiri...
Computer-assisted mathematical calculations of beam angles, intensities of radiation, and duration of irradiation in radiotherapy.
Radiotherapy given to augment some other form of treatment such as surgery or chemotherapy. Adjuvant radiotherapy is commonly used in the therapy of cancer and can be administered before or after the primary treatment.
The total amount of radiation absorbed by tissues as a result of radiotherapy.
Areawide planning for hospitals or planning of a particular hospital unit on the basis of projected consumer need. This does not include hospital design and construction or architectural plans.
Recommendations for directing health planning functions and policies. These may be mandated by PL93-641 and issued by the Department of Health and Human Services for use by state and local planning agencies.
