Radiation-Induced Hearing Impairment in Patients Treated for Malignant Parotid Tumor
TLDR
This study clearly shows that radiotherapy can induce significant hearing impairment, especially when the cochlear doses are higher than 60 Gy, especially for patients receiving doses of greater than or equal to 60 Gy.

TLDR
Using this risk score, 18F-FDG PET may offer maximal benefits by selecting appropriate recurrent cervical cancer patients for salvage therapy with precise restaging information.
Prognostic factors in the management of metastatic epidural spinal cord compression
TLDR
It is concluded that ambulatory patients respond satisfactorily to RT alone; paraparetic patients with radiosensitive tumors do well with RT alone while such patients with epithelial tumors merit L + RT; but (3) paraplegic patients rarely benefit from either modality; but pain control appears a useful measure of minimally adequate radiation dose in individual patients.
Metastatic basal cell carcinoma: case series and review of the literature
TLDR
A retrospective single institution case series aims to shed light on the incidence, risk factors, patterns of spread, prognosis and potential treatment options of basal cell carcinoma in patients with locoregional disease.
Combination chemotherapy with carmustine and cisplatin before, during, and after radiotherapy for adult malignant gliomas
TLDR
Combination of carmustine and cisplatin with cranial irradiation for malignant gliomas is moderately toxic and appears to offer no obvious survival advantage compared with radiation therapy plus BCNU alone.
Predictors for patterns of brain relapse and overall survival in patients with non-small cell lung cancer
TLDR
The findings provide a justification for enrolling patients with good PS and controlled lung lesions into clinical trials for the prevention of early, non-isolated brain relapse and more aggressive therapeutic approaches should be applied to patients with late, isolated and solitary relapses to improve both quality and quantity of life.
