IMPORTANCE Major weight loss is common in patients with head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC) who undergo radiotherapy (RT). How baseline and posttreatment body composition affects outcome is unknown. OBJECTIVE To determine whether lean body mass before and after RT for HNSCC predicts survival and locoregional control. DESIGN, SETTING, AND(More)
OBJECTIVES We undertook a challenge to determine if one or more height-weight formula(e) can be clinically used as a surrogate for direct CT-based imaging assessment of body composition before and after radiotherapy for head and neck cancer (HNC) patients, who are at risk for cancer- and therapy-associated cachexia/sarcopenia. MATERIALS AND METHODS This(More)
PURPOSE We investigated the feasibility of using Gamma Knife (GK) radiosurgery for "dose painting" to deliver higher doses to residual or recurrent nodules and surgical cavity after resection of brain metastases. METHODS AND MATERIALS Two integrated boost techniques were developed with GK. The single-target technique delineated both the surgical cavity(More)
