Innovations in artificial intelligence (AI) are driving a new industrial revolution, and as a result, the medical radiation sciences is experiencing transformational, open, beneficial, yet disruptive changes. Many studies have already been published on specific frontline examples where AI will improve cancer care, but discussions of how AI will change the medical radiation sciences and its associated professions at the systems level have been comparatively sparse. In this article, the system-level implications of AI on the medical radiation sciences are discussed, and recommendations are made on how professionals in this f...

Conclusion: Radiation therapy for nCRT could downstage clinically suspected nodal metastasis. However, such therapy was ineffective when used to treat nodes that were not suspicious for metastasis. Because significant numbers of residual metastases were identified irrespective of coverage by the radiation field, lymphadenectomy should be performed to ensure complete removal of residual nodal metastases after nCRT.

We report a case of scleromyxedematous changes arising in a patient with long-standing MF who progressed to Sézary syndrome (SS) shortly afterward. Total-skin electron-beam radiation therapy resulted in an excellent response, controlling both the MF/SS and the scleromyxedematous lesions; however, the patient died few months later. Although mucin deposition has been described in association with MF/SS (mainly follicular mucinosis in folliculotropic MF), there are limited reports in the literature on dermal mucinosis and scleromyxedematous changes in MF/SS. The mechanism of this association and its prognostic implicat...

Publication date: January 2020Source: Radiation Physics and Chemistry, Volume 166Author(s): Fang-Yu Liu, Zhi-Wei Dong, Hui-Bin Yang, Hong-Yun ShiAbstractEven with advanced inverse intensity modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) technique, the optimization of treatment plans remains a time-consuming task and the outcome is highly influenced by the experience of the planner and time pressure. Automated treatment planning is a current hot topic and new frontier in radiotherapy, which is expected to minimize the above problems. The quality and efficacy of the IMRT plans generated by the Auto-Planning module of the Pinnacle3 treat...
