The purposes of this article were to compare the biophysical dosimetry for postmastectomy left-sided breast cancer using 4 different radiotherapy (RT) techniques. In total, 30 patients with left-sided breast cancer were randomly selected for this treatment planning study. They were planned using 4 RT techniques, including the following: (1) 3-dimensional(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS The aim is to evaluate the preliminary efficacy and side effects of paclitaxel, 5-fluorouracil, and leucovorin intravenous chemotherapy in combination with cisplatin hyperthermic intraperitoneal perfusion chemotherapy (HIPEC) as postoperative adjuvant therapy for patients of locally advanced gastric cancer (GC) at high risk for recurrence(More)
INTRODUCTION: Structural abnormalities in language areas [1,2] and linguistic processing deficits [3-8] have been reported in schizophrenia, but few studies have examined the non-task-correlated, or intrinsic, functional MRI (fMRI) BOLD signal correlation within the language areas of normative control or schizophrenic patients. Following our previously(More)
The aim of the present study was to develop a statistical model-based method for the optimization of intensity-modulated radiotherapy (IMRT). A prostate cancer IMRT plan was redesigned while retaining the same beam orientation and prescribed dose as the regular plan. A series of dosimetric parameters were generated, and a 4-step protocol was performed to(More)
This study aimed to design automated volumetric-modulated arc therapy (VMAT) plans in Pinnacle auto-planning and compare it with manual plans for patients with lower thoracic esophageal cancer (EC). Thirty patients with lower thoracic EC were randomly selected for replanning VMAT plans using auto-planning in Pinnacle treatment planning system (TPS) version(More)
