Positron emission tomography (PET) with [18F]-fluoromisonidazole ([18F]-FMISO) provides a non-invasive assessment of hypoxia. The aim of this study is to assess the feasibility of a dose escalation with volumetric modulated arc therapy (VMAT) guided by [18F]-FMISO-PET for head-and-neck cancers (HNC). Ten patients with inoperable stages III–IV HNC underwent(More)
Inflammatory myofibroblastic tumors (IMTs) are rare benign clinical and pathological entities. IMTs have been described in the lungs, abdomen, retroperitoneum, and extremities but rarely in the head and neck region. A 38-year-old man presented with headache, right exophthalmia, and right 6th nerve palsy. A CT scan revealed enlargement of the right cavernous(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to evaluate freedom from biochemical failure (FFBF), freedom from androgen deprivation therapy (FFADT), freedom from distant metastases (FFDM), and overall survival (OS) after adjuvant radiation therapy (ART) versus early salvage radiation therapy (ESRT) in men with prostate cancer and adverse pathologic features (pT3(More)
Squamous cell anal cancer is a rare malignancy, its incidence increases due to higher exposure of the young adults to risk factors. The current management is based on chemoradiotherapy, which is highly effective and achieves locoregional control but causes important morbidity. Improvement of radiation technique such as intensity modulated radiation therapy(More)
PURPOSE To assess the impact of radiotherapy in paragangliomas (PGLs) with regard to overall survival, local control, volumetric response and particularly quality of life (QoL). MATERIALS AND METHODS From 1985 to 2010, 130 cases of head and neck (H&N) PGLs were managed at Bordeaux University Hospital. With a median follow-up of 7.6 years, we(More)
PURPOSE To present long-term outcomes of a prospective feasibility trial using either protons or 3-dimensional conformal photon-based (accelerated partial-breast irradiation [APBI]) techniques. METHODS AND MATERIALS From October 2003 to April 2006, 98 evaluable patients with stage I breast cancer were treated with APBI (32 Gy in 8 fractions given twice(More)
BACKGROUND Salvage radiotherapy (SRT) has been successfully used for recurrent prostate cancer after radical prostatectomy; however, the optimal timing of SRT remains controversial. Our objective was to identify the risk factors for disease progression after SRT, with a focus on the pre-SRT prostate-specific antigen (PSA) levels in the modern era of PSA(More)
Extensive lymph node (LN) involvement portends significant risk for distant metastasis (DM) among breast cancer patients. As a result, local management may be of secondary import to systemic control in this population. We analyzed patients with ≥10 involved LNs (N3) to evaluate the feasibility of breast conserving therapy (BCT) vs modified radical(More)
