Radiation inactivation of human prostate cancer cells: the role of apoptosis.
Data indicate that the rapid (24 h) inactivation of irradiated DU-145 cells results from apoptosis and accounts for about 5% of the single-hit killing measured by clonogenic assay.
Radiation‐induced, lamina‐specific deletion of neurons in the primate visual cortex
The results show that low doses of irradiation in a slowly developing primate brain can be used effectively to eliminate targeted classes of neurons before they reach their final position, providing an opportunity to examine the role of cell‐cell interactions in the formation of circuitry and the roles of specific cell classes in cortical development.
The efficacy of radiotherapy in the treatment of orbital pseudotumor.
Experience With an Electronic Brachytherapy Technique for Intracavitary Accelerated Partial Breast Irradiation
Electronic brachytherapy has similar acute toxicity profiles to other high dose rate approaches for accelerated partial breast irradiation and offers the convenience of having the treatment in an unshielded room.
Early changes in tumor metabolism after treatment: the effects of stereotactic radiotherapy.
Quantitative evaluation of patient setup uncertainty of stereotactic radiotherapy with the frameless 6D ExacTrac system using statistical modeling.
Evaluating patient setup accuracy and quantify individual and cumulative positioning uncertainties associated with different hardware and software components of the stereotactic radiotherapy (SRS/SRT) with the frameless 6D ExacTrac system finds mask uncertainty is the largest and varies with patients in the range of (-2.07-3.71mm), while isocentricity of the MV radiotherapy machine is the smallest.
Is there a subset of patients with PSA > or = 20 ng/ml who do well after conformal beam radiotherapy?
There appears to be a favorable subgroup of patients with PSA > or = 20 ng/ml where treating to doses over 73 Gy to the central axis is warranted (four-year bNED rate of 58%).
