PURPOSE We report the first single-institutional dosimetric comparison of patients treated with three forms of accelerated partial breast irradiation: interstitial HDR brachytherapy, the MammoSite balloon apparatus, and 3D conformal external beam quadrant irradiation (3D-CRT). METHODS A retrospective dosimetric comparison of interstitial HDR(More)
PURPOSE There are multiple current strategies for breast radiotherapy (RT). The alignment of physician practice patterns with best evidence and patient preferences will enhance patient autonomy and improve cancer care. However, there is little information describing patient preferences for breast RT and physician practice patterns. METHODS AND MATERIALS(More)
PURPOSE We hypothesize that surgical clips placed in the biopsy cavity during lumpectomy can be used as radiographic markers to facilitate image-guided external beam accelerated partial breast irradiation. METHODS AND MATERIALS We evaluated 28 patients with surgically placed clips in the lumpectomy cavity and two CT scans on different days. To establish(More)
PURPOSE Our practice policy has been to provide intraoperative radiotherapy (IORT) at resection to patients with head-and-neck malignancies considered to be at high risk of recurrence. The purpose of the present study was to review our experience with the use of IORT for primary or recurrent cancer of the parotid gland. METHODS AND MATERIALS Between 1982(More)
BACKGROUND The purpose of this study is to review our experience with the use of IORT for patients with advanced cervical metastasis. METHODS Between August 1982 and July 2007, 231 patients underwent neck dissections as part of initial therapy or as salvage treatment for advanced cervical node metastases resulting from head and neck malignancies. IORT was(More)
