Cone-beam computed tomography-based delta-radiomics for early response assessment in radiotherapy for locally advanced lung cancer.

Cone-beam computed tomography-based delta-radiomics for early response assessment in radiotherapy for locally advanced lung cancer. Phys Med Biol. 2019 Jul 15;: Authors: Shi L, Rong Y, Daly M, Dyer BA, Benedict S, Qiu J, Yamamoto T Abstract Cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) images acquired during radiotherapy may allow early response assessment. Previous studies have reported inconsistent findings on an association of CBCT-measured tumor volume changes with clinical outcomes. The purpose of this pilot study was twofold: (1) to characterize changes in CBCT-based radiomics features during treatment; and (2) to quantify the potential association of CBCT-based delta-radiomics features with overall survival in locally advanced lung cancer.
 
 We retrospectively identified 23 patients and calculated 658 radiomics features from each of 11 CBCT images per patient. Feature selection was performed based on repeatability, robustness against contouring uncertainties, and non-redundancy. We calculated the coefficient of determination (R<sup>2</sup>) for the relationship between the actual feature value at the end of treatment and predicted value based on linear models fitted using features between the first and <i>k</i>th fractions. We also quantified the predictive ability for survival with two methods by: (1) comparing delta-radiomics features (defined as the mean change between the first an...

We report a surgical case of a solitary pulmonary metastasis in which the lesion grew from a cyst into a nodular lesion within the cyst with time. An 82 ‐year‐old male, who had undergone sigmoid colon cancer surgery (at the age of 78 years) and primary lung cancer surgery (at the age of 81 years), was found to have a cavitating lesion in the left lower lobe on chest computed tomography (CT). A chest CT that had been performed just before the primary lung cancer surgery revealed a small thin‐walled cyst at the same site at which the cavity was detected in the current CT. Bronchoscopic examination reveale...

AbstractPurposeThe high rates of failure in the radiotherapy target volume suggest that patients with stage II or III non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) should receive an increased total dose of radiotherapy. 2-Deoxy-2-[18F]fluoro-d-glucose ([18F]FDG) and [18F]fluoromisonidazole ([18F]FMISO) (hypoxia) uptake on pre-radiotherapy positron emission tomography (PET)/X-ray computed tomography (CT) have been independently reported to identify intratumor subvolumes at higher risk of relapse after radiotherapy. We have compared the [18F]FDG and [18F]FMISO volumes defined by PET/CT in NSCLC patients included in a prospective study....

The lung is the organ most commonly affected by primary synovial sarcoma. Intratumoral calcification is less common in this organ versus soft tissue. Meanwhile, the presence of calcification in a lung nodule reduces the risk of lung cancer. Here, we report a case of pulmonary synovial sarcoma which manifested as a nodule with calcification, depicted on computed tomography (CT). A 52 ‐year‐old asymptomatic male was referred to Saitama Medical University International Medical Center and CT revealed a well‐defined nodule (1.8 cm), with punctate and eccentric calcification in the right lower lobe. Enhanced CT and 18F‐f...

ConclusionsPhysicians should be aware of the possibility of the emergence of primary malignancies in patients with a history of papillary thyroid carcinoma, especially lung cancer as it is a common site of papillary thyroid carcinoma metastases. Using appropriate diagnostic evaluations in order to choose the best therapeutic option is of utmost importance.

This study aimed to determine the preoperative risk factors for pN2 disease, as well as its incidence and long-term outcomes, in patients with clinical N0-1 non-small cell lung cancer. Methods: We retrospectively analyzed patients who were treated surgically for primary non-small cell lung cancer from November 2005 to December 2014. Patients staged as clinical N0-1 via chest computed tomography (CT) and positron emission tomography (PET)-CT were divided into two groups (pN0-1 and pN2) and compared. Results: In a univariate analysis, the significant preoperative risk factors for pN2 included a large tumor size (p=0....
