Authors: Logar HBZ, Hudej R, Šegedin B Abstract Purpose: To evaluate the clinical use of 3D printing technology for the modelling of individual applicators for advanced gynecological tumors in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)-based brachytherapy (BT). Material and methods: We tested individually designed 3D-printed applicators in nine patients with advanced gynecological cancer. Before BT was performed, all patients were treated with external beam radiotherapy (EBRT). The most common indication for individualized BT was advanced gynecological tumors where the use of standard BT applicators was not feasib...

Gynecologic cancers such as stage IIIA cervical, recurrent endometrial, and primary vaginal cancer often involve only a portion of the vaginal wall. Yet most brachytherapy applicators provide highly symmetric dose distributions with only limited radial modulation of the dose. While multi-channel vaginal cylinders offer some modulation, shielded designs are needed to create clinically useful asymmetric dose distributions that improve dose conformality and sparing of organs at risk (OAR). Here we have designed and 3D printed novel shielded applicators that provide this modulation where desired, and radially symmetric distrib...

Objectives American Brachytherapy Society (ABS)-recommended interstitial brachytherapy (IBT) should be considered for bulky vaginal tumor thicker than 5 mm. The aim of this study was to evaluate the ABS consensus guideline for patients with severe vaginal invasion based on our long-term follow-up results. Methods/Materials The study included 7 patients with vaginal cancer and 14 patients with cervical cancer invading to the lower vagina. Based on prebrachytherapy magnetic resonance imaging findings, patients received intracavitary brachytherapy (ICT) for vaginal tumors 5 mm or less or IBT for vaginal tumors less than ...
