Tomatoes grown under greenhouse conditions were sprayed with radiolabelled maneb and zineb to determine the extent of degradation of these fungicides to ethylenethiourea (ETU) and to study the persistence of ETU on the fruits. The total (14C) residues decreased from 0.082 mg/kg and 0.11 mg/kg at day 0 to 0.023 mg/kg and 0.05 mg/kg at day 20, on zineb- and(More)
PURPOSE The FDA approved C-11 choline PET/computed tomography (CT) for imaging patients with recurrent prostate cancer in 2012. Subsequently, the 2014 NCCN guidelines have introduced labeled choline PET/CT in the imaging algorithm of patients with suspected recurrent disease. However, there is only scarce data on the impact of labeled choline PET/CT(More)
INTRODUCTION The purpose is to describe the method, safety and efficacy of transperineal gold seed placement for image-guided radiation therapy. METHODS An ethics committee approved database was used to review records of consecutive patients from October 2008 through December 2013, who underwent transperineal implantation of three gold markers into the(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate outcomes in prostate cancer patients classified as high-risk (HR) or very high-risk (VHR) who were treated with conformal radiation therapy (CRT) and androgen deprivation therapy (ADT). METHODS Between 11/2001 and 3/2012, 203 patients with HR disease received CRT to the prostate (78-82 Gy) and pelvic lymph nodes (46-50 Gy) with ADT(More)
A 3D finite element model constructed to predict the intensity-dependent refractive index profile induced by femtosecond laser radiation is presented. A fiber core irradiated by a pulsed laser is modeled as a cylinder subject to predefined boundary conditions using COMSOL5.2 Multiphysics commercial package. The numerically obtained refractive index change(More)
In this laboratory study, the microtensile bond strengths (μTBS) of resin-modified glass ionomer cement (RM-GIC) to sound and artificial caries-affected bovine root dentin (ACAD) using three different conditioning agents were evaluated after 24 hours and three months. The fractured interface was examined with a scanning electron microscope (SEM). Specimens(More)
BACKGROUND Radiotherapy to the prostate bed is used to eradicate residual microscopic disease following radical prostatectomy for prostate cancer. Recommendations are based on historical series. OBJECTIVES To determine outcomes and toxicity of contemporary salvage radiation therapy (SRT) to the prostate bed. METHODS We reviewed a prospective ethics(More)
