PURPOSE We conducted a retrospective population-based study to examine the survival outcomes in patients with brain metastases treated with salvage stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS), compared to boost SRS, after previous whole brain radiotherapy (WBRT). METHODS AND MATERIALS From January 2000 to June 2011, 191 patients treated with WBRT and SRS for brain(More)
PURPOSE To describe in detail British Columbia (BC) Cancer Agency (BCCA) Provincial Prostate Brachytherapy (PB) Quality Assurance (QA) Program. METHODS AND MATERIALS The BCCA PB Program was established in 1997. It operates as one system, unified and supported by electronic and information systems, making it a single PB treatment provider for province of(More)
PURPOSE The objective of this study was to compare recurrent tumor locations after radiation therapy with pretreatment delineations of high-grade gliomas from magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and 3,4-dihydroxy-6-[(18)F]fluoro-L-phenylalanine ((18)F-FDOPA) positron emission tomography (PET) using contours delineated by multiple observers. METHODS AND(More)
PURPOSE Interest is growing in treating multiple brain metastases with radiosurgery. We report on the effectiveness and tolerability of volumetric radiosurgery (VRS). METHODS AND MATERIALS We enrolled patients with a ≥6-month estimated life expectancy and 1 to 10 brain metastases with a diameter of ≤3 cm at 5 cancer centers. Volumetric radiosurgery was(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate long-term erectile function (EF) in men treated with iodine-125 prostate brachytherapy (PB) and to determine factors predictive for erectile dysfunction (ED), including natural decline because of aging. METHODS Two thousand nine hundred twenty-nine patients (implanted July 1989-June 2012) with baseline EF and greater than 10-month(More)
PURPOSE In 1999, the American Brachytherapy Society (ABS) recommended brachy-monotherapy for men with low-risk prostate cancer because of the potential for increased toxicity with combined external beam radiotherapy (EBRT) and brachytherapy without the proof of increased efficacy. We investigated the patterns of care in the community in this patient(More)
PURPOSE To review the outcomes of patients with optic nerve sheath meningiomas (ONSM) treated with fractionated stereotactic radiotherapy. METHODS Patient characteristics, treatment, and outcomes were analyzed for all patients with primary and secondary ONSM treated from 2001 to 2012. Clinically significant visual acuity change was defined as a 2-line(More)
