Image-Guided Tumorboost of Bladder Cancer

2014-07-23 21:13:34 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The purpose of the study is to increase the radiation dose (Boost) to the bladder tumor. The bladder cancer patients included in the study will undergo tumor demarcation. The bladder demarcations will then be the target for an image-guided boost delivered precisely to the expected tumor site.

Comparing Two Sets of Bladder-Filling Instructions in Treating Patients Undergoing Radiation Therapy For Prostate Cancer

RATIONALE: Specialized radiation therapy that delivers a high dose of radiation directly to the tumor may kill more tumor cells and cause less damage to normal tissue. Having a full bladde...

Boost Use in Breast Conservation Radiotherapy

This is a two arm randomized study for patients who are undergoing radiotherapy following breast conservation surgery for breast cancer. Local recurrence of breast cancer will be compared ...

Radiation Therapy With or Without Carbogen and Niacinamide in Treating Patients With Bladder Cancer

RATIONALE: Radiation therapy uses high-energy x-rays to damage tumor cells. Drugs such as carbogen and niacinamide may make tumor cells more sensitive to radiation therapy. It is not yet k...

Phase 1/2 study of hypofractionated intensity-modulated radiation therapy for prostate cancer including simultaneously integrated boost.

This study evaluates the safety and efficacy of moderately hypofractionated radiation therapy (RT) with simultaneous integrated boost (HSIB) intensity modulated RT (IMRT) that includes coverage of the...

Pearls and Pitfalls in Diagnosing Pediatric Urinary Bladder Masses.

Urinary bladder masses are rare in children, and the associated histologic features and prognoses in this population are different from those in adults. Most children with urinary bladder masses prese...

Extracorporeal shock wave markedly alleviates radiation-induced chronic cystitis in rat.

This study tested the hypothesis that extracorporeal shock wave (ECSW) treatment can effectively inhibit radiation-induced chronic cystitis (CC). Adult male Sprague-Dawley (SD) rats (n = 24) were rand...

Acute radiation impacts contractility of guinea-pig bladder strips affecting mucosal-detrusor interactions.

Radiation-induced bladder toxicity is associated with radiation therapy for pelvic malignancies, arising from unavoidable irradiation of neighbouring normal bladder tissue. This study aimed to investi...

The main goal was to analyze the incidence of the morbidity in 1980, 1989, 2001, 2014 years and the structures of the absolute number of hematopoietic and lymphoid neoplasms cases during the period 19...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Tumors, cancer or other neoplasms produced by exposure to ionizing or non-ionizing radiation.

Tumors or cancer of the URINARY BLADDER.

Tumors, cancer or other neoplasms caused by or resulting from trauma or other non-radiation injuries.

A HERNIA-like condition in which the weakened pelvic muscles cause the URINARY BLADDER to drop from its normal position. Fallen urinary bladder is more common in females with the bladder dropping into the VAGINA and less common in males with the bladder dropping into the SCROTUM.

Involuntary discharge of URINE as a result of physical activities that increase abdominal pressure on the URINARY BLADDER without detrusor contraction or overdistended bladder. The subtypes are classified by the degree of leakage, descent and opening of the bladder neck and URETHRA without bladder contraction, and sphincter deficiency.
