OBJECTIVE This study compared the dosimetry of volumetric-arc therapy (VMAT) and intensity-modulated radiotherapy (IMRT) with a dynamic multileaf collimator using the Monte Carlo algorithm in the treatment of prostate cancer with and without simultaneous integrated boost (SIB) at different energy levels. METHODS The data of 15 biopsy-proven prostate(More)
PURPOSE To investigate the pre- and posttreatment mean apparent diffusion coefficient (ADCmean ) of cervical cancer tumors treated with definitive chemoradiotherapy (CRT) and evaluate their correlation with recurrence and survival rates. MATERIALS AND METHODS Forty-four patients with cervical squamous cell carcinoma were retrospectively evaluated. All(More)
OBJECTIVES The aim of this work was to evaluate the prognostic role of pretreatment neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio (NLR) and platelet-to-lymphocyte ratio (PLR) in recipients of definitive chemoradiotherapy (ChRT) for cervical cancer. METHODS In 235 patients given definitive ChRT for histologically confirmed cervical cancer, clinical data and pretreatment(More)
PURPOSE We sought to evaluate failure patterns and prognostic factors predictive of recurrences and survival in cervical cancer patients who are treated with definitive chemoradiotherapy (ChRT), who have a subsequent complete metabolic response (CMR) with (18) F-fluorodeoxyglucose positron-emission tomography (FDG-PET) after treatment. METHODS The records(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the prognostic significance of the maximum standardized uptake (SUVmax) value for pelvic lymph nodes in patients with cervical cancer and its impact on treatment response, disease control, and survival. METHODS Ninety-three patients with pelvic or para-aortic metastasis detected by PET/CT and treated with definitive chemoradiotherapy(More)
OBJECTIVE We analyzed the correlation of F-fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) uptake into primary tumors using the maximum standardized uptake value (SUVmax) and clinicopathological factors of disease. The impact of the pretreatment SUVmax of the primary tumor on survival was investigated. MATERIALS AND METHODS The records of 149 patients with biopsy-proven(More)
PURPOSE To investigate dosimetric effects of bladder distention on organs at risk (OARs) during treatment of endometrial cancer using 3D image-based planning of postoperative vaginal vault brachytherapy (BRT). MATERIAL AND METHODS Fifteen patients with early-stage endometrial cancer were studied, each undergoing adjuvant BRT of vaginal vault via 3.5 cm(More)
We retrospectively evaluated the toxicity and efficacy of concurrent radiochemotherapy (C-RCT) in medically fit septuagenarians with stage IIIB non-small cell lung carcinoma (NSCLC). Eighty-nine medically fit, stage IIIB NSCLC septuagenarians were included. Thoracic radiotherapy to a total dose of 66 Gy in 2 Gy fractions was delivered concurrently with 1-2(More)
