PURPOSE Social media and mobile technology are transforming the way in which young physicians are learning and practicing medicine. The true impact of such technologies has yet to be evaluated. METHODS AND MATERIALS We performed a nationwide cross-sectional survey to better assess how young radiation oncologists used these technologies. An online survey(More)
GOAL To study the impact of systemic treatment in neoadjuvant strategy before surgery in prostate cancer. MATERIALS Literature reviews with data analysis from PubMed search using the keywords "neoadjuvant", "chemotherapy", "hormonal therapy", "prostate surgery", "radical prostatectomy", but also reports from ASCO and ESMO conferences. The articles on(More)
PURPOSE To retrospectively analyze the efficacy of 36 Gy of elective node irradiation and report patterns of recurrence in patients with anal cancer treated by chemoradiation with the same radiotherapy (RT) treatment scheme. METHODS AND MATERIALS Between January 1996 and December 2013, 142 patients with anal squamous cell cancer were scheduled to receive(More)
OBJECTIVES A national survey was conducted among the radiation oncology residents about their clinical activities and responsibilities. The aim was to evaluate the clinical workload and to assess how medical tasks are delegated and supervised. MATERIALS AND METHODS A first questionnaire was administered to radiation oncology residents during a national(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to establish a pre-therapeutic score that could predict which patients would be at high risk of enteral tube feeding during (chemo)-radiotherapy for head and neck cancer. PATIENTS AND METHODS A monocentric study was conducted retrospectively on patients receiving a radiotherapy or concurrent chemoradiotherapy for a(More)
PURPOSE To report on patterns of relapse following implementation of intensity-modulated radiotherapy and subsequent changes in practice in a tertiary care centre. PATIENTS AND METHODS Between 2008 and 2011, 188 consecutive patients (mean age 59 years old) received intensity-modulated radiotherapies with curative intent for squamous cell carcinomas of the(More)
PURPOSE Treatment of locally advanced rectal cancer (T3-T4 or N+) is based on short-course radiotherapy (RT) or chemoradiotherapy (CRT) followed by surgery. It is estimated that 30-40 % of rectal cancer occurs in patients aged 75 years or more. Data on adherence to neoadjuvant CRT and its safety remain poor owing to the under-representation of older(More)
BACKGROUND Rectal linitis plastica (RLP) is a rare disease with poor outcome. It is often accompanied by a delayed histopathological diagnosis, primarily due to submucosal disease. A concentric ring pattern or "target sign" on T2-weighted magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) has been proposed as being characteristic for early suspicion. Even though RLP is more(More)
PURPOSE In recent decades, the management of rectal cancer has been significantly improved by optimizing the surgical treatment with the total mesorectal excision and the development of neoadjuvant radiotherapy with or without chemotherapy. In this study, we investigated the impact of changes in practice over a period of 15 years in an expert centre. (More)
The main histological types of cervix cancer are squamous cell carcinoma and adenocarcinoma. The glassy cell carcinoma is a rare form found in less than 2% of cases and it is an entity, aggressive and unknown, of worse prognosis, whose current treatment is not distinguished from other histological types. We report the cases of two patients with glassy cell(More)
