INTRODUCTION The purpose of this investigation is to determine if CT perfusion (CTP) measurements at low doses (LD = 20 or 50 mAs) are similar to those obtained at regular doses (RD = 100 mAs), with and without the addition of adaptive statistical iterative reconstruction (ASIR). METHODS A single-center, prospective study was performed in patients with… (More)
INTRODUCTION The optimal prostate stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) dose-fractionation scheme is controversial. This study compares long-term quality of life (QOL) from two prospective trials of prostate SBRT to investigate the effect of increasing dose (NCT01578902 and NCT01146340). MATERIAL AND METHODS Patients with localized prostate cancer… (More)
This study aims to explore the differences of event-related potential (ERP) between attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and normal children, so that these differences provide scientific basis for the diagnosis of ADHD.

OBJECTIVE Skeletal related events (SREs) are common in patients with bone metastases and lead to decreased quality of life and functional status. The definition of an SRE has evolved over the years and now excludes hypercalcemia of malignancy due to its low incidence. The purpose of this review was to investigate if advances in bone-targeted therapies have… (More)
Patients experiencing lower body pain resulting from bone metastases have greater levels of functional interference than those with upper body pain. The purpose of this study was to assess the levels of interference caused by pain after treatment with conventional radiotherapy using the Brief Pain Inventory (BPI) and to validate this tool for telephone use.… (More)
