AIM To evaluate the unintentional coverage of the internal mammary chain (IMC) with tangential fields irradiation to the breast, and its relation with the type of surgery employed. BACKGROUND The dose distribution in regions adjacent to the treatment targets (mammary gland or chest wall), with incidental irradiation of the IMC, could translate into(More)
PURPOSE High-dose-rate brachytherapy (HDR-BT) alone is an adjuvant treatment option for stage I intermediaterisk endometrial cancer after complete surgical resection. The aim of this study was to determine the value of the dose reported to ICRU bladder point in predicting acute urinary toxicity. Oncologic results are also presented. MATERIAL AND METHODS(More)
BACKGROUND In patients who are not amenable to surgical resection (cavernostomy), it is difficult to achieve palliation of hemoptysis from pulmonary aspergilloma. There are only 9 cases with a short follow-up that have reported the use of radiotherapy for hemoptysis in this scenario. METHODS A retrospective series of 21 patients with chronic necrotizing(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the impact of the extension of the radiotherapy field cranially toward para-aortic lymph nodes (EF-RT) in advanced cervical cancer. MATERIALS AND METHODS A systematic search of databases (PubMed, CENTRAL, Clinical Trials) was performed and included studies that were published between 1960 and November 2015 without language(More)
There is no consensus on the use of computed tomography in vaginal cuff brachytherapy (VCB) planning. The purpose of this study was to prospectively determine the reproducibility of point bladder dose parameters (DICRU and maximum dose), compared with volumetric-based parameters. Twenty-two patients who were treated with high-dose-rate (HDR) VCB underwent(More)
