Magnetic Resonance-Guided Adaptive Radiotherapy (MRgART) Using an Integrated Magnetic Resonance Linear Accelerator (MRL)

2019-10-28 13:57:13 | BioPortfolio

Summary

This study is being done to help further understand how MR-guided adaptive RT in conjunction with the Integrated Magnetic Resonance Linear Accelerator (MRL) can improve patient outcomes. This study will include participants who will be receiving radiotherapy using the MRL machine to target their cancer more precisely. Participants will be asked to have a few extra MR scans taken during their RT planning and to complete a few quality of life questionnaires.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A cancer registry mandated under the National Cancer Act of 1971 to operate and maintain a population-based cancer reporting system, reporting periodically estimates of cancer incidence and mortality in the United States. The Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) Program is a continuing project of the National Cancer Institute of the National Institutes of Health. Among its goals, in addition to assembling and reporting cancer statistics, are the monitoring of annual cancer incident trends and the promoting of studies designed to identify factors amenable to cancer control interventions. (From National Cancer Institute, NIH Publication No. 91-3074, October 1990)

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

That portion of the stomach remaining after gastric surgery, usually gastrectomy or gastroenterostomy for cancer of the stomach or peptic ulcer. It is a common site of cancer referred to as stump cancer or carcinoma of the gastric stump.

A voluntary organization concerned with the prevention and treatment of cancer through education and research.

A hereditary disease characterized by multiple ectodermal, mesodermal, and endodermal nevoid and neoplastic anomalies. Facial trichilemmomas and papillomatous papules of the oral mucosa are the most characteristic lesions. Individuals with this syndrome have a high risk of BREAST CANCER; THYROID CANCER; and ENDOMETRIAL CANCER. This syndrome is associated with mutations in the gene for PTEN PHOSPHATASE.
