PURPOSE To analyze the outcome in all oropharynx cancer patients treated at the University of Wisconsin during 1995-2005 and highlight the methodologic challenge in comparing outcome after intensity-modulated radiotherapy (IMRT) with that of historical controls. METHODS AND MATERIALS Outcomes were compared in 195 oropharynx cancer patients after(More)
PURPOSE To report the local control and overall survival outcomes after lumpectomy followed by accelerated partial breast irradiation in high-risk patients as defined by the current inclusion criteria for the National Surgical Adjuvant Breast and Bowel B-39/Radiation Therapy Oncology Group 0413 Intergroup trial. METHODS AND MATERIALS Between 2000 and(More)
Although two-thirds of invasive breast cancers and half of non-invasive breast cancers are amenable to lumpectomy, only about 70% of such patients choose breast conservation. Of that group, up to one-third do not follow-up with radiation therapy despite it being clinically indicated. The reasons include the patient's and surgeon's attitude toward breast(More)
We wanted to illustrate the feasibility of using hyperpolarized helium magnetic resonance imaging (HPH-MRI) to obtain functional information that may assist in improving conformal avoidance of ventilating lung tissue during thoracic radiotherapy. HPH-MRI images were obtained from a volunteer patient and were first fused with a proton density-weighted(More)
The purpose of this article was to evaluate the role of radiotherapy (RT) in the treatment of pleomorphic adenoma. This is a retrospective analysis of 17 patients treated with RT alone (2 patients) or combined with surgery (15 patients). Follow up ranged from 1.8 to 27.1 years (median, 9.6 years). Local control was obtained in 8 of 10 patients (80%) with(More)
Describing behavior with ratios of count and time is a popular measurement tactic in the field of behavior analysis. The paper examines some count and time ratios in order to determine what about behavior each describes and why one ratio may sometimes be more useful than another. In addition, the paper briefly considers some terminological issues, derived(More)
17097 Background: This is a report on the technical feasibility, dosimetric aspects, and daily image-guidance capability with megavoltage computed tomography (MvCT) imaging of stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT) using tomotherapy for patients with medically inoperable early stage non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). METHODS Treatment planning was(More)
