Noor ul Huda Khan Asghar, Zaheer Abbas Gilani, Irfan Ullah, Gulfam Nasar, Malik Muhammad Akhtar, Muhammad Nauman UsmaniAbstractIntensity Modulated Radiotherapy (IMRT) is a modern type of external beam radiotherapy that conforms high radiation dose to the target with minimum dose to the organs at risk (OARs), making it an embellishment of every developed institution. The earlier publications didn't have much proofs of the clinical superiority of IMRT o...

Abstract OBJECTIVES: To develop a model for predicting the dose absorbed by organ at risk (OAR) during intensity modulated radiation therapy for nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC). METHODS: Fifty-five patients underwent intensity modulated radiation therapy for NPC. The OARs were divided into several sub organs, and SPSS software was used to evaluate multiple linear method for fitting the normalized volume for each sub organ, normalized mean dose (Dmean) Dnm (Dnm = Dmean/Dprescription), and normalized D10%-D100% values Dn10%-n100%(Dn10%-n100% = D10%-D100%/Dprescription) for each OAR. Based on the Matlab software,...

AbstractPurposeTo review the United States  National Cancer Database (NCDB) from 2004 to 2015 and analyze survival outcomes of invasive non-urachal adenocarcinoma based on treatment modality.MethodsThe NCDB 2004 –2015 bladder dataset was queried for adenocarcinoma histology, excluding urachal variant, and limited to patients with clinical stage T2–T4 disease. Treatment modality was categorized as no treatment, cystectomy (partial or radical), external beam radiation therapy (EBRT), or EBRT plus cystecto my. Our primary outcome was overall survival. Cox regression (CR) and Kaplan–Meier (KM) analysis w...

AbstractObjectiveThis multicenter study focuses on the use of a film-forming wound dressing in the form of a gel that can be applied directly to the area affected by radiation dermatitis, especially after skin breakdown. The primary objective of the study was to validate the efficacy of an innovative film-forming wound dressing used as monotherapy in the treatment of radiation dermatitis in patients with RTOG score 2.5 ( ± 0.5) confirmed by the investigator.MethodsFifty-four patients undergoing radiation therapy for different cancer types and developing radiation dermatitis were recruited in the study; they w...
