Thirty patients with benign intractable or complicated esophageal disease were treated with esophageal resection and isoperistaltic jejunal interposition. There were three anastomotic leaks (2 radiologic only) and one postoperative death (3.5%). Long-term follow-up results were favorable in all but one patient who had scleroderma. Despite this, radionuclide(More)
PURPOSE Brachytherapy treatment has been a cornerstone for management of various cancer sites, particularly for the treatment of gynecological malignancies. In low dose rate brachytherapy treatments, 137Cs sources have been used for several decades. A new 137Cs source design has been introduced (model 67-6520, source B3-561) by Isotope Products Laboratories(More)
PURPOSE Clinical workflow and machine down time occasionally require patients to be temporarily treated on a system other than the initial treatment machine. A new commercial dose mimicking application provides automated cross-platform treatment planning to expedite this clinical flexibility. The aim of this work is to evaluate the feasibility of automatic(More)
PURPOSE Adaptive radiotherapy requires complete new sets of regions of interests (ROIs) delineation on the mid-treatment CT images. This work aims at evaluating the accuracy of the RayStation hybrid deformable image registration (DIR) algorithm for its overall integrity and accuracy in contour propagation for adaptive planning. METHODS The hybrid DIR is(More)
PURPOSE We aim to evaluate a new commercial dose mimicking inverse-planning application that was designed to provide cross-platform treatment planning, for its dosimetric quality and efficiency. The clinical benefit of this application allows patients treated on O-shaped linac to receive an equivalent plan on conventional L-shaped linac as needed for(More)
