BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE In dermatology high resolution ultrasonic systems proved to be valuable in following up genuine and experimental inflammatory dermatoses. The opportunities of 20 MHz ultrasonic imaging for quantitative assessment of early and late postradiation skin reactions are investigated.

Behandlungsfaktoren zu identifizieren, die einen Einfluß auf das Überleben von Patienten mit Pankreaskarzinom haben. Patienten und Methode: In einer nichtrandomisierten Studie wurden 38 Patienten ausgewertet, die von 1984 bis 1998 wegen eines Adenokarzinoms des Pankreas behandelt worden waren. Bei 18/38 Patienten war eine Resektion vorgenommen worden. Das(More)
The objective of this research is to identify the impact of radiation treatment factors on survival in vulvar cancer patients. We performed a follow-up study on 60 women with squamous cell carcinoma of the vulva treated at the Department of Radiotherapy of the University of Ulm from 1980 to 1997. The follow-up time ranged from 0.5 to 17 years (mean 6.5(More)
At the department of radiation therapy of the university of Würzburg flexible catheters are in use since 1989 for interstitial brachytherapy in high dose rate mode as the sole treatment modality or in combination with external beam therapy. The afterloading technique is applied in carcinoma of the oropharynx, of the oral cave, of the pancreas and in brain(More)
From September 1989 until March 1992 nine patients with unresectable, though localized carcinoma of the pancreas were treated by a multimodality therapy consisting of palliative surgery, interstitial conformal brachytherapy in high-dose rate mode (HDRBT) with iridium-192 up to 30 Gy and external-beam radiation therapy (EBRT) of about 52 Gy. Four patients(More)
Maximum control of local disease in early breast cancer is obtained by breast conserving surgery, minimally invasive surgery of the axilla and consecutive selection for adjuvant therapy based on the number of involved axillary level I nodes. The answer to the question what is a 'node negative' patient? by defining the number of lymph nodes excised at(More)
In brachytherapy an accurate dose distribution is usually not definable, and therefore not required. If flexible catheters are implanted, such as in head and neck cancer, resulting isodose curves only rarely fit exactly to radiographic films, and the target volume is not easily reconstructed. Usually no clear relationship exists between the(More)
