OBJECTIVE This study was performed to identify pathologic and clinical risk factors that best predicted 5-year recurrence-free survival (RFS) among patients with early-stage cervical carcinoma, treated by radical hysterectomy and pelvic lymphadenectomy. METHODS The records of 197 patients with early-stage invasive cervical carcinoma who underwent radical(More)
PURPOSE To present our experience using a twice-daily radiotherapy (RT) technique, including hyperfractionated and accelerated-hyperfractionated RT, on nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) patients. The dose to the primary tumor was increased in the hope that local control could be increased without the cost of increased late complications. We analyzed acute and(More)
BACKGROUND High pre-operative CA125 levels in women with endometrial cancer may be related to lymph node metastases and poor prognosis. AIM To evaluate whether pre-operative cancer antigen 125 (CA125) levels are associated with lymph node metastases and prognosis in endometrial cancer. METHODS One hundred and twenty women with endometrial cancer were(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the long-term results of salvage radiotherapy for patients of invasive cervical cancer after inadequate surgery. METHODS AND MATERIALS Between October 1975 and January 1994, 90 patients were treated with radiotherapy for invasive cervical carcinoma after simple hysterectomy. The inadequate surgery was performed for a variety of(More)
This paper describes the full size solid 3D Anthropometric Model using in the positioning and verification process for radiation treatment planning of the skull of cancer patients in radiotherapy. In order to obtain a full scale 3D, solid Anthropometric Model, data is first collected through computed tomography and optical scanning. Through surface(More)
BACKGROUND/PURPOSE Evidence on the prevention of radiation dermatitis is lacking. The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of 3M Cavilon No Sting Barrier Film and topical corticosteroids on irradiated skin. METHODS Thirty-nine postoperative breast cancer patients were randomized into three groups for intraindividual comparison (skin to be(More)
The paper presents the development of a computeraided image registration tool (CAIMT) for system setup verification in radiation treatment planning. Image registration was achieved by application of Generalized Hough Transform (GHT) to match the detected skull contours in portal film and simulation film. The CAIMT has been applied to register the image(More)
