Adenoid cystic carcinoma of trachea is rare and is associated with prolonged survival and better prognosis. It is often misdiagnosed as chronic bronchitis or asthma. The ideal treatment option is surgical resection with tracheal reconstruction followed by adjuvant radiotherapy. Post operative radiotherapy may decrease the risk of local recurrence, but has(More)
Cisplatin-based concurrent chemoradiation plays an undisputed key role as definitive treatment in unresectable patients with locally advanced squamous cell carcinoma head and neck or as an organ preservation strategy. Treatment with 100 mg/m2 3-weekly cisplatin is considered the standard of care but is often associated with several adverse events. The(More)
AIM To analyze the influence of computed tomography (CT)-guided 3D conformal interstitial brachytherapy (3D-IBT) boost for better coverage of target volumes and study the diametric impact to organ at risk in patients with post-surgery recurrent and residual cervical cancer. MATERIAL AND METHODS Fourteen consecutive patients with recurrent or residual(More)
Soft tissue sarcomas are a rare entity. While surgery is established as the mainstay of treatment, the exact role and sequencing of adjuvant therapy is not well defined. Literature on Indian patients with soft tissue sarcoma with respect to clinical profile and prognostic factors is scarce. We retrospectively analysed the data of 112 patients operated for(More)
OBJECTIVE Conformal radiation therapy mandates accurate delineation of target volumes, which requires incorporation of modern imaging modalities like magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and positron emission tomography (PET) in addition to conventionally used computed tomography (CT). This can resolve discrepancies in target delineation in head and neck(More)
Although preoperative chemoradiation has shown to improve surgical outcomes in both loco-regional control and long term survival; it has still not become the standard of care in many centers. There is reluctance in accepting preoperative chemoradiation primarily due to fear of increased perioperative morbidity/mortality or non-availability of infrastructure(More)
High energy capacitor bank is used for primary electrical energy storage in pulsed power drivers. The capacitors used in these pulsed power drivers have low inductance, low internal resistance, and less dc life, so it has to be charged rapidly and immediately discharged into the load. A series resonant converter based 45 kV compact power supply is designed(More)
BACKGROUND Neoadjuvant chemoradiation (NCRT) has been shown to improve survival in patients with locally advanced esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (SCC). The aim of the present study was to evaluate the role of 18-FDG PET-CT in predicting pathological response to NCRT. MATERIAL AND METHODS We assessed 70 patients of esophageal SCC who underwent NCRT and(More)
