Quantitative PET Imaging Detects Early Metabolic Remodeling in a Mouse Model of Pressure-Overload Left Ventricular Hypertrophy In Vivo
We proposed that metabolic remodeling in the form of increased uptake of the myocardial glucose analog 18F-FDG precedes and triggers the onset of severe contractile dysfunction in pressure-overloadExpand
Prognostic Implications of Extent of Resection in Glioblastoma: Analysis from a Large Database.
OBJECTIVE To analyze the predictors for and clinical impact of gross total resection (GTR) in patients with glioblastoma (GBM). METHODS AND MATERIALS The National Cancer Database was queried forExpand
Adult nodular lymphocyte‐predominant Hodgkin lymphoma: treatment modality utilization and survival
Early‐stage nodular lymphocyte‐predominant Hodgkin lymphoma (NLPHL) is associated with a favorable prognosis. Our aim was to evaluate the patterns of care of radiotherapy utilization in this diseaseExpand
Quality assurance tool for organ at risk delineation in radiation therapy using a parametric statistical approach.
PURPOSE To develop a quality assurance (QA) tool that identifies inaccurate organ at risk (OAR) delineations using volumetric features from prior OAR delineation data from 73 thoracic patients . Expand
Squamous cell carcinoma of the rectum: Practice trends and patient survival
Leverage the National Cancer Database (NCDB) to evaluate trends in management of nonmetastatic squamous cell cancer (SCC) of the rectum and their effect on survival for this uncommon tumor.
Short‐course Versus Long‐course Neoadjuvant Therapy for Non‐metastatic Rectal Cancer: Patterns of Care and Outcomes From the National Cancer Database
Micro‐Abstract The current United States practice trend for neoadjuvant radiation for rectal cancer is unknown. In this study, 28,193 patients within the National Cancer Database treated withExpand
Prostate cancer high dose-rate brachytherapy: review of evidence and current perspectives
ABSTRACT Introduction: Patients with intermediate to high risk disease (prostate specific antigen (PSA) ≥ 10, Gleason score ≥ 7, or clinical stage ≥ T2b) suffer from poorer long-term biochemicalExpand
Comparison of heart dose in early-stage left-sided breast cancers treated with intraoperative radiation therapy or whole-breast irradiation with deep inspiratory breath hold.
PURPOSE To compare heart dose between patients treated with lumpectomy and either intraoperative radiation therapy (IORT) with CT-guided high-dose-rate brachytherapy (precision breast IORT [PB-IORT])Expand
STAT RT: a prospective pilot clinical trial of Scan-Plan-QA-Treat stereotactic body radiation therapy for painful osseous metastases.
BACKGROUND Planning and treatment of bone metastases with palliative radiotherapy often requires 1-3 weeks, resulting in patient inconvenience and delayed palliation. We developed an expeditedExpand
