OBJECTIVE To study the prognostic value of the University of California, San Francisco Cancer of the Prostate Risk Assessment (CAPRA) score to predict biochemical failure (bF) after various doses of external beam radiotherapy (EBRT) and/or permanent seed low-dose rate (LDR) prostate brachytherapy (PB). PATIENTS AND METHODS We retrospectively analysed 345(More)
OBJECTIVE To analyze the value of the Cancer of the Prostate Risk Assessment (CAPRA) score to predict biochemical failure (bF) in patients with D'Amico low- or intermediate-risk prostate cancer treated with different radiation techniques. METHODS We analyzed 744 patients treated with either external beam radiotherapy (52.7%) or permanent-seed prostate(More)
BACKGROUND To determine prostate volume (Pvol) changes at 3 different time points during the course of I¹²⁵ permanent seed brachytherapy (PB). To assess the impact of these changes on acute urinary retention (AUR) and dosimetric outcome. METHODS We analyzed 149 hormone-naïve patients. Measurements of the prostate volume were done using three-dimensional(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to prospectively evaluate the quality of life (QoL) and pulmonary function of patients with early-stage non-small cell lung cancer treated with robotic stereotactic ablative radiation therapy (SABR). METHODS AND MATERIALS Eligible patients all had histologically confirmed stage I non-small cell lung cancer and were(More)
OBJECTIVE This study estimated the screening prevalence of prediabetes and diabetes using a lower BMI cutoff of 23 kg/m(2) in Asians in the U.S. using the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) from 2011 to 2012. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS A cross-sectional analysis was conducted of non-Hispanic Asians, aged 45 years and older, with(More)
BACKGROUND Restaurant eating while optimizing nutrition and maintaining a healthy weight is challenging. Even when nutritional information is available, consumers often consider only calories. A quick and easy method to rate both caloric density and nutrition is an unmet need. A food rating system created to address that need is assessed in this study. (More)
In this paper we will answer the following question: what are the consequences of an earlier onset of delinquency on competence several years after onset? Rather than studying the social and psychological predictors of an early onset, we will be interested in the impact of the age of onset of self-reported delinquency on the social and personal adaptation(More)
PURPOSE This study aimed to catalog the relationships between step-based accelerometer metrics indicative of physical activity volume (steps per day, adjusted to a pedometer scale), intensity (mean steps per minute from the highest, not necessarily consecutive, minutes in a day; peak 30-min cadence), and sedentary behavior (percent time at zero cadence(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE To study a four-point combined analysis (Quadrella) of optimal outcome among patients treated with exclusive permanent seed prostate brachytherapy (PB), as defined by the likelihood of achieving disease control and preserving normal urinary, gastro-intestinal (GI) and sexual function. MATERIALS AND METHODS 384 patients with(More)
PURPOSE Determine whether fat distribution, body mass index, or clinical and dosimetric factors are associated with prostate specific antigen (PSA) bounce (PSAb) of ≥1.6 ng/mL in patients treated with permanent seed (125)I prostate brachytherapy (PB). METHODS AND MATERIALS We identified 23 patients with a PSAb of ≥1.6 ng/mL. For each patient with a(More)
