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)
The helical pulsed forming line (PFL) can generate longer duration rectangular pulse in a smaller length. A compact PFL using helical water line is designed and experimentally investigated. The impedance of the helical PFL is 22 [ohm sign]. The compactness is achieved in terms of reduction in length of the PFL by a factor of 5.5 using helical water PFL as(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)
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)
Suprapubic aspiration of the bladder has proved a safe and reliable method of collecting urine for culture. It avoids contamination of the specimen and dispenses with the need for colony counts, because the isolation of any organism indicates bladder bacteriuria. In addition, urine collected in this way can be kept at 4 degrees C. or at room temperature for(More)
The experimental results of an air-core pulse transformer are presented, which is very compact (<10 Kg in weight) and is primed by a capacitor bank that is fabricated in such a way that the capacitor bank with its switch takes the shape of single-turn rectangular shaped primary of the transformer. A high voltage capacitor assembly (pulse-forming-line(More)
A fast double pulse system is designed and developed using the transmission line characteristic of the pulse forming line to generate two flat top rectangular pulses with extremely short interpulse repetition interval. The helical pulse forming line (HPFL) is used to generate longer duration rectangular pulses in smaller length. The HPFL inner conductor is(More)
The design, construction, and testing of high frequency, high voltage pulse power supply are reported. The purpose of the power supply is to generate dielectric barrier discharges for industrial applications. The power supply is compact and has the advantage of low cost, over current protection, and convenient control for voltage and frequency selection.(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)
