Image-Guided Tumorboost of Bladder Cancer

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


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.

Association between vascular endothelial growth factor rs699947 polymorphism and the risk of three major urologic neoplasms (bladder cancer, prostate cancer, and renal cell carcinoma): A meta-analysis involving 11,204 subjects.

The relationship between vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) gene variant rs699947 polymorphism and urologic neoplasms risk was studied extensively in recent years. The VEGF gene plays a key rol...

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.
