Impact of a ketogenic diet intervention during radiotherapy on body composition: I. Initial clinical experience with six prospectively studied patients
TLDR
The data lend support to the hypothesis that KDs administered as supportive measures during standard therapy are safe and might be helpful in preservation of muscle mass and weight loss occurred in all patients, although this was only significant in two patients. Expand
Image-guided radiotherapy for liver cancer using respiratory-correlated computed tomography and cone-beam computed tomography.
TLDR
4D image guidance using liver contour matching between respiratory-correlated CT and cone-beam CT scans increased the accuracy compared with stereotactic positioning and compared with IGRT without consideration of breathing motion. Expand
A new pneumatic vibrator for functional magnetic resonance imaging of the human sensorimotor cortex
TLDR
A fMRI compatible vibration device consisting of a pneumatically driven dual membrane pump was developed and showed a comparable activation pattern with respect to finger-to-thumb-tapping in the contralateral perirolandic region. Expand
Potential of image-guidance, gating and real-time tracking to improve accuracy in pulmonary stereotactic body radiotherapy.
TLDR
Four-dimensional image-guidance with pre-treatment verification of the target position and online correction of errors reduced safety margins most effectively in pulmonary SBRT. Expand
Accuracy and inter-observer variability of 3D versus 4D cone-beam CT based image-guidance in SBRT for lung tumors
TLDR
Respiration correlated 4D-CBCT improves the accuracy of image-guidance by more precise target localization in the presence of breathing induced target motion and by reduced inter-observer variability. Expand
Dosimetric consequences of translational and rotational errors in frame-less image-guided radiosurgery
TLDR
IG-RS with online correction of translational errors achieves high geometric and dosimetric accuracy, and intra-fractional errors decrease target coverage and conformity unless compensated with appropriate safety margins. Expand
Intra-fractional uncertainties in image-guided intensity-modulated radiotherapy (IMRT) of prostate cancer
TLDR
Clinically significant intra-fractional changes of the prostate position were observed and margins of 6 mm were calculated for this intra- fractional uncertainty and Repeated or continuous verification of the gland position may allow further margin reduction. Expand
Clinical outcome of dose-escalated image-guided radiotherapy for spinal metastases.
TLDR
Dose-escalated irradiation of spinal metastases was safe and resulted in excellent local control, and oligometastatic patients with a long life expectancy and epidural involvement are considered to benefit the most from fractionated RT. Expand
A Simple and Non-Invasive Vacuum Mouthpiece-Based Head Fixation System for High Precision Radiotherapy
TLDR
Preliminary results show that high repositioning accuracy does not rule out simple and quick application and patient comfort and that Paramount, however, is tensionless repositioned via the vacuum mouthpiece. Expand
Combination of peptide receptor radionuclide therapy with fractionated external beam radiotherapy for treatment of advanced symptomatic meningioma
TLDR
The combination of PRRT and EBRT is feasible and well tolerated and represents an attractive strategy for the treatment of recurring or progressive symptomatic meningioma, which should be further evaluated. Expand
