This study aimed to evaluate the utility of a commercially available software package (HybridRecon, Hermes Medical Solutions AB) which incorporates full Monte Carlo collimator modelling. Analysis of image quality was performed on both phantom and clinical images in order to ultimately provide a recommendation of an optimum reconstruction for post-therapy90Y microsphere SPECT/CT imaging.A 3D-printed anthropomorphic liver phantom was filled with90Y with a sphere-to-background ratio of 4:1 and imaged on a GE Discovery 670 SPECT/CT camera. Datasets were reconstructed using ordered-subsets expectation maximization (OSEM) 1 &nda...

Authors: Gao Y, Han Y, Nan G, Hu M, Zhou X, Hu X Abstract Purposes: To develop a fast, accurate and robust method of fusing Computed Tomography (CT) with pre-operative Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) and evaluate the impact of using the fused data on the implantation of Iodine-125 (125I) seeds for brachytherapy of high-grade gliomas (HGG). Methods: A study was performed on a cohort of 10 consecutive patients with HGG were treated by 125I brachytherapy with CT-MRI fusion image guided (CMGB), and 10 patients treated with CT alone guided (CGB). Statistical analysis was performed to compare (1) the planning target...

Conclusions: Radiation therapy is safe and effective for treatment of stage IVA uterine cervical cancer. The reduced radiation dose per fraction may contribute to the prevention of vesicovaginal fistula formation. PMID: 29348871 [PubMed]

The objective of this study was to assess the recommended DVH parameter (e.g., D2 cc) addition method used for combining EBRT and HDR plans, against a reference dataset generated from an EQD2-based DVH addition method. A revised DVH parameter addition method using EBRT DVH parameters derived from each patient's plan was proposed and also compared with the reference dataset. Thirty-one biopsy-proven cervical cancer patients who received EBRT and HDR brachytherapy were retrospectively analyzed. A parametrial and/or paraaortic EBRT boost were clinically performed on 13 patients. Ten IMRT and 21 3DCRT plans were determine...

Conclusions: This series demonstrates the importance of maintaining clinical suspicion of conjunctival squamous neoplasia in pterygia. We recommend that all excised pterygia be submitted for histopathologic evaluation and be carefully evaluated for dysplasia and variants of SCC associated with increased risk of intraocular invasion. Undetected ocular surface squamous neoplasia may give rise to potentially vision- and eye-threatening invasive corneal SCC.Ocul Oncol Pathol 2018;4:240-249

J Neurol Surg B DOI: 10.1055/s-0037-1617450Head and neck rhabdomyosarcoma (HNRMS) is a uniquely challenging site to treat given the young patient age and critical anatomy of the head and neck region. We review the characteristics, management, and future directions in the treatment of HNRMS. Most patients who present with HNRMS have unresectable disease due to functional and/or cosmetic constraints. However, surgical resection and brachytherapy serve a critical role in select patients. The treatment paradigm for the majority of patients with HNRMS consists of definitive chemotherapy and radiation therapy. As the incidence o...

ConclusionsAPBI and WBI were both associated with favorable patient-reported outcomes in early follow-up. APBI resulted in a lesser degree of patient-reported skin color change and breast elevation relative to baseline.

Authors: Echegaray JJ, Chen R, Bellerive C, Singh AD Abstract A 4-year-old female with a unilateral circumscribed choroidal hemangioma and secondary total exudative retinal detachment. A nasal skin scar-like lesion incised to confirm a histopathologic diagnosis of linear nevus sebaceous. Further imaging disclosed asymmetry of the lateral ventricle frontal horns, suggestive of the diagnosis of linear nevus sebaceous syndrome. The choroidal hemangioma was treated with I-125 episcleral brachytherapy (apical dose of 45 Gy). At 6 months post-radiation, the tumor showed regression with total resolution of exuda...
