Combination of yttrium-90 radioembolization with stereotactic body radiation therapy in the treatment of portal vein tumor thrombosis
Purpose: Portal vein tumor thrombosis (PVTT) from cancer involving the liver carries a dismal prognosis, with median overall survival (OS) ranging from 2 to 5 months. While treatment with yttrium-90 (90Y) radioembolization alone may improve outcomes, overall prognosis remains po...
Dose-volume histogram parameters and patient-reported EPIC-Bowel domain in prostate cancer proton therapy
Purpose: To analyze rectal dose and changes in quality of life (QOL) measured with the Expanded Prostate and Cancer Index Composite (EPIC) bowel domain in patients being treated for prostate cancer with curative-intent proton beam therapy (PBT) within a large single-institution ...
Use of GammaPlan convolution algorithm for dose calculation on CT and cone-beam CT images
Purpose: The aim of this study was to assess the suitability of using cone-beam computed tomography images (CBCTs) produced in a Leksell Gamma Knife (LGK) Icon system to generate electron density information for the convolution algorithm in Leksell GammaPlan (LGP) Treatment Plan...
