Free-Circulating Methylated DNA in Blood for Diagnosis, Staging, Prognosis, and Monitoring of Head and Neck Squamous Cell Carcinoma Patients: An Observational Prospective Cohort Study.
Methylation testing in plasma is a powerful diagnostic tool for molecular disease staging, risk stratification, and disease monitoring, and patients with initially high biomarker levels might benefit from intensified treatment and posttherapeutic surveillance.
Extraretinal Induced Visual Sensations during IMRT of the Brain
There is clear evidence that interaction of photon irradiation with neuronal structures distant from the eye can lead toVisual sensations in patients undergoing intensity modulated radiotherapy of the brain without the beam passing through ocular structures.

Various local ablative treatment modalities are available and feasible for tumor mass reduction of advanced pancreatic cancer but with different symptomatic benefit for patients, including high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) being one of the most exciting and innovative modalities.
Acute radiation-induced skin toxicity in hypofractionated vs. conventional whole-breast irradiation: An objective, randomized multicenter assessment using spectrophotometry.
[Quality of life after treatment of head and neck tumors : longitudinal comparison after operation and adjuvant radio(chemo)therapy].
Both operation and postoperative RCT, lead to decreased quality of life in patients with a head and neck cancer, and RCT seems to have a more pronounced effect on thequality of life than operative therapy.
Prophylactically applied Hydrofilm polyurethane film dressings reduce radiation dermatitis in adjuvant radiation therapy of breast cancer patients
Hydrofilm completely prevented moist desquamation and significantly reduced patients’ subjective experience of itching and pain, suggesting a prophylactic application of Hydrofilm in adjuvant radiotherapy of breast cancer patients to reduce or even prevent radiation dermatitis.
Hydrofilm Polyurethane Films Reduce Radiation Dermatitis Severity in Hypofractionated Whole-Breast Irradiation: An Objective, Intra-Patient Randomized Dual-Center Assessment †
Hydfilm polyurethane films were applied to either the medial or lateral breast-half of 74 patients with breast cancer undergoing hypofractionated whole-breast irradiation following breast-preserving surgery, and significant beneficial effects were observed in terms of radiation dermatitis severity, erythema, hyperpigmentation as well as subjective treatment-related symptom experiences.
MRI during radiotherapy of glioblastoma
MR follow-up after 30 Gy in patients undergoing (chemo)radiotherapy for glioblastoma allows prognostic appraisal, and pseudoprogression has to be taken into account, though rare in this setting.
[Change of Taste during and after IM- /IG-Radiotherapy for Head and Neck Cancer Patients].
A targeted dose reduction to the tongue with a view to minimize the taste dysfunction is thinkable and aim of further studies.
