RATIONALE: Radiation therapy uses high-energy x-rays to kill tumor cells. Specialized radiation therapy that delivers a high dose of radiation directly to the tumor may kill more tumor cel...
RATIONALE: Image-guided radiation therapy uses high-energy x-rays to kill tumor cells. Specialized radiation therapy that delivers a lower dose of radiation directly to the tumor may kill ...
RATIONALE: Radiation therapy uses high-energy x-rays to kill tumor cells. Using scintigraphy to plan specialized radiation therapy that delivers a high dose of radiation directly to the tu...
RATIONALE: Specialized radiation therapy, such as intensity-modulated radiation therapy, that delivers a high dose of radiation directly to the tumor may kill more tumor cells and cause le...
The purpose of this study is to test the safety of a new type of IG-IMRT called "ultra-hypofractionated IG-IMRT" where a higher dose of radiation is given to the tumor during each treatmen...
To quantify the risk of radiation-induced optic neuropathy (RION) after stereotactic/image-guided positioning and intensity-modulated radiotherapy (IMRT) with ≥50 Gy to the anterior visual pathway...
The purpose of this work is to demonstrate quantitatively the complementary relation between the introduction of intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) and planning target volume (PTV) margin re...
Spatial Dose Patterns Associated with Radiation Pneumonitis in a Randomized Trial Comparing Intensity-Modulated Radiation Therapy with Passive Scattering Proton Therapy for Locally Advanced Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer.
Radiation pneumonitis (RP) is commonly associated with thoracic radiation therapy (RT), and its incidence is related to dose and volume of the normal lung in the path of radiation. Our aim was to inve...
Mesenteric masses can considerably shift positions between fractions of radiation therapy (RT). With image-guided RT, we can adapt our treatment delivery daily to target the mass while avoiding surrou...
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 ...
The use of pre-treatment imaging modalities to position the patient, delineate the target, and align the beam of radiation to achieve optimal accuracy and reduce radiation damage to surrounding non-target tissues.
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.
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.
CONFORMAL RADIOTHERAPY that combines several intensity-modulated beams to provide improved dose homogeneity and highly conformal dose distributions.
Drugs used to potentiate the effectiveness of radiation therapy in destroying unwanted cells.
