BACKGROUND AND AIM This study proposed a method to estimate the beam-on time for prostate cancer patients treated on Tomotherapy when FW (field width), PF (pitch factor), modulation factor (MF) and treatment length (TL) were given. MATERIAL AND METHODS THE STUDY WAS DIVIDED INTO TWO PARTS: building and verifying the model. To build a model, 160 treatment(More)
Basic fibroblast growth factor (FGF-2) and acidic fibroblast growth factor (FGF-1) are mitogens for a variety of cell types. Many reports suggest that haemopoietic cells are among these. Nevertheless, when we examined the effect of recombinant human FGF-1 or 2 on normal human marrow cell proliferation in vitro, only minimal stimulatory activity could be(More)
Total skin electron irradiation (TSEI) has been employed as one of the methods of mycosis fungoides treatment since the mid-twentieth century. In order to improve the effects and limit the complications following radiotherapy, a number of varieties of the TSEI method, frequently differing in the implementation mode have been developed. The paper provides a(More)
Helical tomotherapy (HT) was introduced at the Greater Poland Cancer Centre (GPCC) in April 2009. Retrospective analysis included data from the treatments performed for the first 656 patients treated with HT between May 2009 and May 2012 at the GPCC. In order to evaluate the implications on daily workload and scheduling of patients, stepwise regression and(More)
AIM A literature review was undertaken to identify current TSEB therapy in pediatric patients. BACKGROUND Total skin electron beam (TSEB) therapy is a method of irradiation with low energy electron beam dedicated to patients who have superficial skin lesions all over their body. Such skin malignancies are sparse among adults and even more uncommon with(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Tomotherapy treatment planning depends on parameters that are not used conventionally such as: field width (FW), pitch factor (PF) and modulation factor (MF). The aim of this study is to analyze the relationship between these parameters and their influence on the quality of treatment plans and beam-on time. MATERIAL AND METHODS Ten(More)
AIM OF THE STUDY Helical tomotherapy is one of the methods of radiotherapy. This method enables treatment implementation for a wide spectrum of clinical cases. The vast array of therapeutic uses of helical tomotherapy results directly from the method of dose delivery, which is significantly different from the classic method developed for conventional linear(More)
The study includes data of 109 people who were examined by psychiatrists and psychologists of their pension demands concerning statement for the Regional Court in Lublin, in 1999-2001 period. The period of treatment and the frequency of calls to PZP have been taken into consideration. The number of hospitalizations has also been taken into account. Then,(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Helical tomotherapy (HT) can deliver highly conformal, uniform doses to the target volume. However, HT can only be delivered in a coplanar mode. The purpose of this study was to perform a dosimetric comparison of HT versus coplanar (cIMRT) and non-coplanar (n-cIMRT) beam arrangements on a conventional linear accelerator in a diverse(More)
Growth medium of Inonotus obliquus exerts antimitotic effect on HeLa cells mostly in M, G1 and G2 phases increasing at the same time catalase activity. This effect was not observed in prokaryotic Nocardia. Significant antimitotic effect of mycelium was not associated with stimulation of catalase activity in HeLa cells.
