To evaluate patterns of care as well as effectiveness and side effects of palliative treatment in four German radiation oncology departments. All referrals in four German radiation oncology departments (two university hospitals, one academic hospital, one private practice) were prospective documented for 1 month in 2008 (2 months at one of the university(More)
Das lokal begrenzte Prostatakarzinom kann mit der Strahlentherapie kurativ behandelt werden. Die Kombination von perkutaner Strahlentherapie und HDR-Iridium-192-Nachlade-Brachytherapie ermöglicht eine relativ hohe Dosis im Zielvolumen, ohne die Nebenwirkungsrate zu steigern. Patienten und Methode: Seit 1991 werden Patienten mit histologisch gesichertem(More)
Aim of this study was to evaluate the advantages of electon beam irradiation compared to kilovoltage X-ray therapy in the treatment of keloids. Furthermore, the risk of developing malignancy following keloid radiotherapy was assessed. Patients and Methods: An automatic water phantom was used to evaluate the dose distribution in tissue. Furthermore, a series(More)
In most cases of proximal cholangiocarcinoma, curative surgery is not possible. Radiotherapy can be used for palliative treatment. We report our experience with combined external beam and intraluminal radiotherapy of advanced Klatskin's tumors. Patients and Methods: 30 patients were treated for extrahepatic proximal bile duct cancer. Our schedule consisted(More)
Recently published results of quality of life (QoL) studies indicated different outcomes of palliative radiotherapy for brain metastases. This prospective multi-center QoL study of patients with brain metastases was designed to investigate which QoL domains improve or worsen after palliative radiotherapy and which might provide prognostic information.

Die Darstellung des Knochenmarks mittels radioaktiv markierter monoklonaler Antikörper gegen das NCA-95-Antigen humaner Granulozyten eröffnet die Möglichkeit der direkten Abbildung der granulopoetischen Aktivität. Nach einer Strahlentherapie findet sich im Bestrahlungsfeld eine verminderte Speicherung. Ziel dieser Arbeit war die Untersuchung von Stärke und(More)
PURPOSE To provide further understanding regarding outcome and prognostic factors of endometrial stromal tumors (EST). METHODS AND MATERIALS A retrospective analysis was performed on the records of 59 women diagnosed with EST and treated with curative intent between 1983 and 2007 in the framework of the Rare Cancer Network. RESULTS Endometrial stromal(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Radiotherapy of recurrent head and neck tumours is limited in dose due to pre-treatment up to normal tissue tolerance doses. Surgery alone is limited by the problems related to pre-surgery, post-radiation fibrosis, and infiltration of tumours into nerves and vessels too closely to be completely removed. Our aim was to evaluate the(More)
MATERIALS AND METHODS We studied the effect of amifostine on radiation sensitivity of human endothelial cells and several tumor cell lines (HeLa, MIA PaCa-2 and BxPC-3). The cells were incubated in medium with a concentration of 1 microgram/microliter amifostine and after 1 hour irradiated with 10 or 20 Gy single dose. Proliferation index was measured by(More)
