Radiotherapy for osseous metastases from hepatocellular carcinoma: a retrospective study of 57 patients
Radiation therapy was effective for bone metastases from HCC, especially for those treated with a TDF value of ≥ 77, and for patients with a solitary bone metastasis and those without metastases to other organs had a better prognosis.
Intraoperative radiotherapy for resectable extrahepatic bile duct cancer.
The combination of IORT and EBRT is useful for patients with bile duct cancer who undergo noncurative resection or who have lymph node metastasis, and statistical analysis identified the following prognostic factors: performance status, curative surgical resection, lymph node Metastasis, IORT dosage, and treatment period.
Effect of hyperthermia combined with external radiation therapy in primary non-small cell lung cancer with direct bony invasion
Purpose : Local control in lung cancer directly invading the bone is extremely poor. Effects of regional hyperthermia combined with conventional external beam radiation therapy were evaluated.
Stereotactic radiotherapy for locally recurrent nasopharyngeal carcinoma
Stereotactic radiotherapy with isocentric multiportals in one plane, which is changed at every 20 to 30 Gy, can provide local control with acceptable toxicity in patients with recurrent nasopharyngeal carcinoma, but increased clinical experience and longer follow-up will be necessary to evaluate the overall role of this technique.
Ectopic lacrimal gland of the orbit.
A case of intraorbital ectopic lacrimal gland was evaluated with various radionuclides, and Technetium-99m-(V)-DMSA SPECT showed intense accumulation on both the early and delayed images, which played an important role in the tissue characterization of this uncommon lesion.
Prognostic value of FDG-PET in patients with ovarian carcinoma following surgical treatment
Elevated serum CA-125 levels may be more useful for evaluating the prognosis of ovarian cancer during the post-operative follow-up than FDG-PET findings, which is less favorable than that of patients with negative findings.
31P NMR spectroscopy can predict the optimum interval between fractionated irradiation doses.
Changes in the metabolites observed by phosphorous-31 magnetic resonance spectroscopy (31P-MRS) could be useful indicators for determining the fractionation schedule in radiation therapy.
The effects of radiofrequency hyperthermia on pain and function in patients with knee osteoarthritis: a preliminary report
Radiofrequency hyperthermia can safely increase the temperature inside the knee joint and provides a remarkable pain relief effect and can improve the patients’ daily life.
Clinical application of low dose-rate brachytherapy combined with simultaneous mild temperature hyperthermia.
MTH simultaneously combined with LDRI was an effective method for treating progressive and bulky tumors with a previous treatment history and showed no local recurrence within the follow-up period of 4-31 months.
Radiotherapy doses at special reference points correlate with the outcome of cervical cancer therapy.
The radiotherapy doses at the reference point on the edge of the cervix affected pelvic control more than the clinical parameters, and the dose at the rectal reference point was more strongly correlated with the occurrence of late rectal complications.
