BACKGROUND To compare thermoplastic masks (TMP) and vacuum cushion system (VCS) to assess differences in interfraction set up accuracy in patients treated with stereotactic radiotherapy (SBRT) for oligometastatic lung cancer. Secondarily, to survey radiotherapy technologists to assess their satisfaction with the two systems. METHODS Retrospective study of(More)
PURPOSE The present study analyzed the expression by immunochemistry of the novel markers P21-activated protein kinase 6 (PAK6) and proteasome beta-4 subunit (PSMB4) in men with localized prostate cancer (PC) who were treated with dose-escalation radiotherapy (RT) and androgen deprivation therapy. MATERIALS AND METHODS Between 1996 and 2004, a cohort of(More)
Clinical nomograms based on Gleason grade, tumor stage, and serum PSA are still the best predictors of prostate cancer (PC) outcome. The biotechnological advancements achieved in the last decade represent a remarkable source for new prognostic and predictive tissue and serum molecular biomarkers. In this review, we will summarize conventional PC(More)
