Centers in Japan and the United States are extending boron neutron capture therapy (BNCT) to the treatment of malignant melanoma (MM). Positron emission tomography (PET) has been used to image glioblastoma multiforme with 18F-boronophenylalanine (18F-BPA) for the purpose of generating 10B distribution maps. These distribution maps can be used to improve the(More)
The incidence of melanoma is rising. The primary initial treatment for melanoma continues to be wide local excision of the primary tumor and affected lymph nodes. Exceptions to wide local excision include cases where surgical excision may be cosmetically disfiguring or associated with increased morbidity and mortality. The role of definitive or adjuvant(More)
PURPOSE To report our 20 yr experience of definitive radiotherapy for early glottic squamous cell carcinoma (SCC). METHODS AND MATERIALS Radiation records of 141 patients were retrospectively evaluated for patient, tumor, and treatment characteristics. Cox proportional hazard models were used to perform univariate (UVA) and multivariate analyses (MVA).(More)
Melanoma is an aggressive malignancy with a deplorable penchant for spreading to the brain. While focal therapies such as surgery and stereotactic radiosurgery can help provide local control, the majority of patients still develop intracranial progression. Novel therapeutic combinations to improve outcomes for melanoma brain metastases (MBM) are clearly(More)
INTRODUCTION Rotational total skin electron irradiation (RTSEI) is an effective therapy for cutaneous T cell lymphoma (CTCL). CD30 expression has been identified as a prognostic factor in CTCL. Therefore, we investigated CD30 status, treatment response, and survival in our cohort of patients with CTCL treated with RTSEI. METHODS Patients with CTCL treated(More)
OBJECTIVE To review spine surgery management strategies for patients with chronic low back pain (CLBP) that has failed to respond to all nonsurgical treatment options. MATERIALS AND METHODS Literature review was conducted for spine surgery in the treatment of CLBP without compressive anatomical disease. The main diagnosis identified was degenerated disc(More)
OBJECTIVES This study compares cancerogenesis risks posed by the 64 row detector and the 320 row detector computed tomography scanners used during coronary computed tomography angiography (CCTA) following decennial screening guidelines. MATERIAL AND METHODS Data of the radiation absorbed after CCTA by lung, thyroid, and female breast in patients between(More)
Aim. To determine absorbed radiation dose (ARD) in radiosensitive organs during prospective and full phase dose modulation using ECG-gated MDCTA scanner under 64- and 320-row detector modes. Methods. Female phantom was used to measure organ radiation dose. Five DP-3 radiation detectors were used to measure ARD to lungs, breast, and thyroid using the(More)
