Objective:We undertook to evaluate the therapeutic effects of radiotherapy in patients with bone metastases from hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), identify prognostic factors, and find an optimum radiation schedule.Methods:We retrospectively analyzed the clinical records of 57 patients (99 sites) with painful bone metastases from HCC from December 1978 to(More)
Background. Kaposi's sarcoma is frequently found in association with acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS). We report on radiotherapy for patients with AIDS-related Kaposi's sarcoma at Tokyo Metropolitan Komagome Hospital. Methods. Between April 1991 and May 1997, radiotherapy was given to 11 lesions in eight men with AIDS-related Kaposi's sarcoma to(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE In our institution, rotational 3D-conformal radiation therapy (also called conformation therapy) has been applied since the late 1970s to conform the target volume of high-dose radiation to the cancerous tissue while minimizing radiation to the surrounding normal tissues. This technique has been used most commonly to treat prostate(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of the current study was to evaluate the difference in prognostic factors between stage IB and II uterine cervical carcinoma patients treated with postoperative radiation therapy. PATIENTS AND METHODS Between May 1988 and May 1998, a total of 94 patients including 47 patients with stage IB and 47 patients with stage II uterine cervical(More)
Thirty-five patients underwent CT examination 15 to 30 min after abdominal angiography with ioxaglate. The gallbladder was visualized in 12 patients in the absence of clinical evidence of renal impairment. Gallbladder opacification on CT examinations shortly after angiography shows that the hepatobiliary tract is important in the excretion of ioxaglate.
Thirty-nine patients underwent CT examination 15 to 30 min after abdominal angiography with ioxaglate. Gallbladder opacification was observed in 15 patients in the absence of clinical evidence of renal impairment. Among them, 14 patients revealed liver cirrhosis or chronic hepatitis, and one patient showed severe fatty liver on CT. The amount of contrast(More)
