Target definition is the largest source of geometric uncertainty in radiation therapy. This is partly due to a lack of contrast between tumor and healthy soft tissue for computed tomography (CT) and due to blurriness, lower spatial resolution, and lack of a truly quantitative unit for positron emission tomography (PET). First-, second-, and higher-order(More)
The purpose of this report was to review the role of whole brain radiotherapy (WBRT) in the management of brain metastases. In particular, we review the role of WBRT as a prophylactic therapy, and the role of surgery and stereotactic radiousurgery (SRS) with respect to WBRT, by discussing the relevant randomized controlled trials. WBRT is associated with(More)
Due to the fast development of the Cloud Computing technologies, the rapid increase of cloud services are became very remarkable. The fact of integration of these services with many of the modern enterprises cannot be ignored. Microsoft, Google, Amazon, SalesForce.com and the other leading IT companies are entered the field of developing these services.(More)
Stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) is an established non-invasive ablative therapy for brain metastases. Early clinical trials with SRS proved that tumor control rates are superior to whole brain radiotherapy (WBRT) alone. As a result, WBRT plus SRS was widely adopted for patients with a limited number of brain metastases ("limited number" customarily means(More)
Our purpose was to report efficacy of hypofractionated cavity stereotactic radiotherapy (HCSRT) in patients with and without prior whole brain radiotherapy (WBRT). 32 surgical cavities in 30 patients (20 patients/21 cavities had no prior WBRT and 10 patients/11 cavities had prior WBRT) were treated with image-guided linac stereotactic radiotherapy. 7 of the(More)
PURPOSE To assess motion of the spinal cord and cauda equina, which are critical neural tissues (CNT), which is important when evaluating the planning organ-at-risk margin required for stereotactic body radiation therapy. METHODS AND MATERIALS We analyzed CNT motion in 65 patients with spinal metastases (11 cervical, 39 thoracic, and 24 lumbar spinal(More)
This study was conducted to elucidate patients with early breast cancer preference for standard whole breast irradiation (WBI) or partial breast irradiation (PBI) following lumpectomy, as well as identify important factors for patients when making their treatment decisions. Based on relevant literature and ASTRO consensus statement guidelines, an(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this work was to determine the predictive value of chemical exchange saturation transfer (CEST) metrics in brain metastases treated with stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS). METHODS CEST spectra at a radiofrequency power of 0.52 µT were collected on a 3 Tesla (T) magnetic resonance imaging from 25 patients at three time points:(More)
