BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE To analyse the relationship of individual cellular radiosensitivity and fibrosis after breast conserving therapy. A new model was used describing the percentage of patients developing fibrosis per year and per patient at risk. PATIENTS AND METHODS In a retrospective study, 86 patients were included, who had undergone breast(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE To contribute to the question whether the risk of radiation-related brachial plexopathy increases, remains constant or decreases with time after treatment. PATIENTS AND METHODS Between 12/80 and 9/93, 140 breast cancer patients received supraclavicular lymph node irradiation using a telecobalt unit. Total dose was 60 with 3Gy per(More)
PURPOSE New insights into the kinetics of late complications occurring after radiation therapy indicated that all patients have a constant risk of developing late tissue complications. These observations might have a great impact on studies relating normal tissue complications to individual radiosensitivity. METHODS AND MATERIALS Data previously published(More)
Today, head-up displays (HUDs) are commonly used in cars to show basic driving information in the visual field of the viewer. This allows information to be perceived in a quick and easy to understand manner. With advances in technology, HUDs will allow richer information to be conveyed to the driver by exploiting the third dimension. We envision a(More)
Synopsis of the introductory paragraph of the DEGRO consensus S2e-guideline recommendations for the radiotherapy of benign disorders, including physical principles, radiobiological mechanisms, and radiogenic risk. This work is based on the S2e-guideline recommendations published November 14, 2013. The basic principles of radiation physics and treatment(More)
