Metastatic hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) has an aggressive course with a very poor outcome. The common hematogenous metastatic sites are the lungs, bones, and adrenal glands. The chest wall is an extremely rare site of metastasis from HCC. We report a rare presentation in a gentleman, where the chest wall metastasis kept progressing in spite of treatment,(More)
The aim of this study is to present the dosimetry, feasibility, and preliminary clinical results of a novel pencil beam scanning (PBS) posterior beam technique of proton treatment for esophageal cancer in the setting of trimodality therapy. From February 2014 to June 2015, 13 patients with locally advanced esophageal cancer (T3-4N0-2M0; 11 adenocarcinoma, 2(More)
The use of Ifosfamide-based chemotherapy in primary nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC), in neoadjuvant settings [NACT] has not been sufficiently evaluated. We present here a retrospective analysis of 78 patients of untreated, locoregionally advanced NPC patients who received Ifosfamide-Cisplatin-based NACT at our institute from 1997 to 2004. Definitive(More)
PURPOSE To quantify the percentage doses received by salivary glands (SGDs) in head and neck interstitial brachytherapy (BT). METHODS AND MATERIALS The study included 43 patients who underwent high-dose rate iridium-192 implant for oral cavity and oropharyngeal lesions treated with BT as a boost. BT dose varied with disease stage and external radiation(More)
PURPOSE Cryotherapy and brachytherapy are definitive local treatment options for low- to intermediate-risk prostate cancer. There are both prospective and retrospective data for brachytherapy, but the use of cryotherapy has been limited primarily to single-institution retrospective studies. Currently, no published evidence has compared low-dose-rate(More)
PURPOSE Several robotic delivery systems for prostate brachytherapy are under development or in pre-clinical testing. One of the features of robotic brachytherapy is the ability to vary spacing of needles at non-fixed intervals. This feature may play an important role in prostate brachytherapy, which is traditionally template-based with fixed needle spacing(More)
