The objective of this study was to test the hypothesis that worse prognosis in blacks with MF is mediated by higher disease stage at diagnosis and by earlier disease onset in black females. METHODS: We conducted retrospective chart review of 337 patients with clinically-suspected MF seen at Johns Hopkins between 2003 and 2018, requiring biopsy-proven disease for study inclusion. Patient demographics, initial stage/percent body surface area (BSA) involvement, pathology type, flow cytometry results, and treatment regimens were recorded. RESULTS: Of 303 patients with confirmed MF, 166 (55%) were white, 107 (35%) black...

Chauhan, Arun Oinam, Bhavana RaiAbstractAimThe aim of this study was to formulate isodose volume relations encompassed by isodose surfaces in Co-60 and Ir-192 HDR intracavitary brachytherapy (ICBT) of cervix carcinoma using the Total Reference Air Kerma (TRAK).BackgroundThe TRAK and isodose volumes are radioactive source related. The formulated relations can easily estimate the irradiated isodose volume if the TRAK and dose are known. The C0-60 can also be used for brachyt...
