Authors: Pawlewicz K, Szutkowski Z, Kawecki A Abstract Adenoid cystic carcinoma (ACC) of the trachea is a relatively rare tumor among thoracic diseases. The present study reports the case of a 23-year-old woman with ACC of the trachea who underwent surgical resection of the tumor in The National Institute of Tuberculosis and Lung Diseases (Warsaw, Poland). Histopathological examination revealed that the tumor was not completely resected (R2 resection) and strict observation of the patient was therefore prescribed. After ~9 years of follow-up, clinical and histopathological tumor progression was confirmed and the pa...

CONCLUSIONS: Average motion and patient set-up uncertainties during radiotherapy treatment were found to be limited. However, uncertainties were larger for the cranio-caudal direction and outliers were found in all orthogonal directions. When having available 4D-CT and CBCT information, the use of patient-specific and anisotropic safety margin expansions is advised for both target volume and OAR.
