PURPOSE Photon-based radiation therapy does currently not play a major role as local ablative treatment for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). Carbon ions offer distinct physical and biological advantages. Due to their inverted dose profile and the high local dose deposition within the Bragg peak, precise dose application and sparing of normal tissue is(More)
PURPOSE The aim of this study was to characterize and understand the therapy-induced changes in diffusion parameters in rectal carcinoma under chemoradiotherapy (CRT). The current literature shows conflicting results in this regard. We applied the intravoxel incoherent motion model, which allows for the differentiation between diffusion (D) and perfusion(More)
AIM Supplementary functional information can contribute to assess response in targeted therapies. The aim of this study was to evaluate semi-automatic RECIST plus iodine uptake (IU) determination in melanoma metastases under BRAF inhibitor (vemurafenib) therapy using dual-energy computed tomography (DECT). METHODS Nine patients with stage IV melanoma(More)
