Recent data from Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group/American College of Radiology Imaging Network 6685 suggests that fluorodeoxyglucose-positron emission tomography/computed tomography offers a sensitive modality for evaluation of lymph node metastasis in the neck, with an overall negative predictive value of 87%, which improved to 94% when a maximum standardized uptake value of 2.5 was used.1 Therefore, we would not recommend a contralateral neck dissection in this patient with a clinically and radiographically contralateral negative neck, particularly given the need for adjuvant radiation and concurrent cisplatin chemotherapy.

ConclusionsThis study demonstrates that intra-fraction targeting errors can be within 2mm while inter-fraction shifts from free-breathing spine to ABC breath-hold target can be as high as 8mm. Values that deviate significantly would need further investigation to rule out factors such as local progression, bowel gas or fiducial shift prior to treatment.

ConclusionsEpithelioid rhabdomyosarcoma is a rare variant of rhabdomyosarcoma. To the best of our knowledge, none has been reported in the oral cavity region; thus, this is the first case of this aggressive variant described in this location. This entity may develop without any apparent symptoms or signs of a malignant entity, thus mimicking the appearance of a benign neoplasm or inflammatory process. A comprehensive multidisciplinary approach is advised to diagnose and treat this entity accordingly.

ConclusionACC is a rare entity in breast cancer pathology. Its size can be highly variable as measured by various radiographic modalities, and final Pathology from the surgical specimen is, as always, required for an accurate tumoral diameter. With that caveat, careful utilization of pre-operative imaging modalities is critical in pre-surgical planning to choose the appropriate surgery.

Conclusions: The proposed nomogram is a reliable and robust tool for accurate prognostic prediction in patients with extremity soft tissue LMS. Introduction Soft tissue leiomyosarcoma (LMS) is an aggressive sarcoma, which originates from smooth muscle cells (1). Soft tissue LMS accounts for about 5–10% of all soft tissue sarcomas (2). It occurs in different sites, including the retroperitoneum, intraabdominal sites, and extremities (3). Extremity LMS comprised about 10–15% of extremity sarcomas, with a preference for the lower limb (4–6). Extremity LMS tends to have a better prognosis than uterine...

Conclusions The recent, first randomized clinical trial demonstrated overall and progression free survival benefits after SBRT to oligometastatic disease which supports prior retrospective case series (6). The spine is a common site of metastatic bone disease, and as high quality data continue to mature, along with completion of additional randomized clinical trials, it is expected that utility of SBRT to the spine will increase in the future. Spine SBRT is unique due to the requirement of sharp dose falloff to prevent serious neurologic morbidity. With recent advances in radiotherapy planning, robotic patient positionin...
