Complications of fluoroscopically guided extraforaminal cervical nerve blocks: An analysis of 1036 injections. Background: A number of serious complications associated with fluoroscopically guided extraforaminal cervical
PURPOSE T2-weighted (T2W) magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) has been used for target delineation in cervix cancer brachytherapy. The objective of this study was to examine the feasibility of using diffusion-weighted magnetic resonance imaging (DWI) for target delineation as compared against T2W imaging. MATERIAL AND METHODS Fifteen cervix cancer patients,(More)

BACKGROUND The mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR) functions within the phosphatidylinositol-3 kinase (PI3K)/Akt pathway as a critical modulator of cell survival. This clinical trial evaluated the combination of the mTOR inhibitor everolimus with conventional temozolomide (TMZ)-based chemoradiotherapy. METHODS Newly diagnosed patients with glioblastoma(More)
BACKGROUND Stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT) is evolving into a standard of care for unresectable lung nodules. Local control has been shown to be in excess of 90% at 3 years. However, some patients present with synchronous lung nodules in the ipsilateral or contralateral lobe or metasynchronous disease. In these cases, patients may receive multiple(More)
Absolute quantification of protein expression and posttranslational modifications by mass spectrometry has been challenging due to a variety of factors, including the potentially large dynamic range of phosphorylation response. To address these issues, we have developed MARQUIS-Multiplex Absolute Regressed Quantification with Internal Standards-a novel mass(More)
PURPOSE Stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT) is commonly used to treat unresectable lung nodules. Given its relative safety and effective local control, SBRT has also been used to treat recurrent lung nodules after high-dose external beam radiation (EBRT) to the lung. The toxicity of such treatment is unknown. METHODS AND MATERIALS Between 2006 and 2012,(More)
