Normal tissue toxicity is an important consideration in the continued development of more effective external beam radiotherapy (EBRT) regimens for head and neck tumors. The ability to detect EBRT-induced changes in mandibular bone vascularity represents a crucial step in decreasing potential toxicity. To date, no imaging modality has been shown to detect(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this study is to develop a methodology to standardize the analysis and reporting of the patterns of loco-regional failure after IMRT of head and neck cancer. MATERIAL AND METHODS Twenty-one patients with evidence of local and/or regional failure following IMRT for head-and-neck cancer were retrospectively reviewed under approved IRB(More)
PURPOSE Digitally reconstructed radiographs (DRRs) are routinely used as an a priori reference for setup correction in radiotherapy. The spatial resolution of DRRs may be improved to reduce setup error in fractionated radiotherapy treatment protocols. The influence of finer CT slice thickness reconstruction (STR) and resultant increased resolution DRRs on(More)
PURPOSE A number of studies have previously assessed the role of teaching interventions to improve organ-at-risk (OAR) delineation. We present a preliminary study demonstrating the benefit of a combined atlas and real time software-based feedback intervention to aid in contouring of OARs in the head and neck. METHODS AND MATERIALS The study consisted of a(More)
While nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) commonly invades the skull base, true central nervous system metastasis is a rare phenomenon. We report a case of NPC metastasis to the pituitary gland and review the literature for similar events. Eight months after his definitive radiation therapy, our patient presented with symptoms of optic chiasm compression and(More)
