BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE To assess the diagnostic performance of conventional and diffusion weighted (DWI) magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in predicting response in locally advanced cervical cancer. MATERIALS AND METHODS Total 24 patients with stage IIB-IIIB squamous cell carcinoma cervix were treated with initial two cycles of paclitaxel and carboplatin(More)
BACKGROUND A novel, short duration, palliative radiotherapy schedule for inoperable head and neck cancer was evaluated in terms of palliation of cancer-related symptoms and acute toxicities. MATERIALS AND METHODS Thirty-six patients with inoperable head and neck cancer were included in the study (2010-2012). All patients received 40 Gy in 10 fractions(More)
The present study is aimed at determination of accuracy of relocation of Gill-Thomas-Cosman frame during fractionated stereotactic radiotherapy. The study aims to quantitatively determine the magnitudes of error in anteroposterior, mediolateral and craniocaudal directions, and determine the margin between clinical target volume to planning target volume(More)
CONTEXT Nanotechnology is an empowering technology that holds promise in cancer therapeutics by increasing the ratio of tumor control probability to normal tissue complication probability. It can increase the bioavailability of the drug at the target site, reduce the frequency of administration and reach otherwise lesser-accessible sites. The present study(More)
PURPOSE To study prostate bed deformation, and compare coverage by 5 mm and 10mm posterior expansion PTV margins. METHOD Fifty patients who completed post-prostatectomy radiotherapy had two expansion margins applied to the planning CT CTV: PTV10 (10 mm isometrically) and PTV5 (5 mm posteriorly, 10 mm all other directions). The CTV was then contoured on(More)
BACKGROUND Loco-regional radiotherapy is an important treatment modality in breast cancer and radiation pneumonitis (RP) is one of the early toxicities. AIM To study the occurrence, correlation of RP with patient and radiotherapy related factors and the effects on pulmonary function following conventional radiotherapy in breast cancer. SETTINGS AND(More)
BACKGROUND We investigated the feasibility of neoadjuvant low-dose radiation and chemotherapy with paclitaxel and carboplatin (LDCRT) before radical chemoradiation (CRT) and assessed the feasibility, efficacy, and response rate to such a regimen. METHODS This is a single-arm phase II trial of 24 patients, with locally advanced squamous cell carcinoma of(More)
PURPOSE Oesophageal malignancy is the fourth commonest cancer which has a very poor outcome. In the management of oesophageal malignancy, radiation therapy is underutilized by many physicians due to feared complications though its role is well proven in literature. This study brings the role of radiation therapy in terms of loco-regional and distant(More)
