BACKGROUND To define the clinical target volume (CTV) for radiotherapy in patients with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). METHODS A prospective study was conducted to histologically evaluate the presence and the distance of microscopic extension (ME) for resected HCC on the basis of examination of whole-mount preparations of carcinoma tissue sections.

BACKGROUND AND AIMS Accurate prediction of the response to preoperative chemoradiotherapy (CRT) potentially assists in the individualized selection of treatment. Endorectal US (ERUS) is widely used for the pretreatment staging of rectal cancer, but its use for preoperatively predicting the effects of CRT is not well evaluated because of the inflammation,(More)
Preoperative chemoradiotherapy (pre-CRT) has been represented as the standard treatment for locally advanced rectal cancer (LARC), but large variations of tumor radiation response to CRT have been reported in the clinic. To explore the function of microRNAs as potential therapeutic predictors of pre-CRT pathological response in LARC, we analyzed global(More)
This study was to evaluate the interfractional and intrafractional setup errors and baseline shifts of golden fiducial markers in patients receiving postoperative radio- therapy (RT) using cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) in order to calculate PTV margins for patients with liver cancer. Twelve patients with liver tumors under- went postoperative RT.(More)
PURPOSE To investigate the efficacy and toxicity of postoperative intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) for patients with soft tissue sarcomas (STSs) in the extremities and trunk wall. PATIENTS AND METHODS Eighty patients with localized STSs in the extremities and trunk wall treated with function-conserving surgery and postoperative IMRT were(More)
PURPOSE This study aimed to spare hematopoietical bone marrow (BM) identified by magnetic resonance (MR) radiation in order to alleviate acute hematologic toxicity (HT) for gastric cancer patients treated with postoperative chemoradiotherapy (CRT). METHODS A prospective, open-label, single-arm Phase II study (Clinicaltrials.gov; NCT 01863420) was(More)
