This study evaluated the efficiency of stereotactic body radiation therapy of lung (SBRT-Lung) in generating a treatment volume using conventional multiple-phase three-dimensional computed tomography (3D-CT) of a patient immobilized with pneumatic abdominal compression. The institutional protocol for SBRT-Lung using the RapidArc technique relied on a planning target volume (PTV) delineated using 3D-CT and accounted for linear and angular displacement of the tumor during respiratory movements. The efficiency of the institutional protocol was compared with that of a conventional method for PTV delineation based on radiobiological estimates, such as tumor control probability (TCP) and normal tissue complication probability (NTCP), evaluated using dose-volume parameters...

PURPOSE: To test the hypothesis that mid-treatment measures of the retention of indocyanine green after 15 minutes (ICGR15) would improve the prediction of posttreatment liver function in the setting of hepatocellular carcinoma. METHODS AND MATERIALS: Between 2006 and 2015, 144 patients with hepatocellular carcinoma received 175 courses of stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT). Patient data, such as age, sex, portal vein thrombosis, cirrhosis, Child-Pugh (CP) score, prior liver-directed therapies, and liver function tests, including albumin-bilirubin (ALBI) and ICG clearance, and dosimetric data, such as tumor volume and radiation dose, were collected...

BACKGROUND: Radiotherapy for pancreatic cancer has two major challenges: (I) the tumor is adjacent to several critical organs and, (II) the mobility of both, the tumor and its surrounding organs at risk (OARs). A treatment planning study simulating stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) for pancreatic tumors with both the internal target volume (ITV) concept and the tumor tracking approach was performed. The two respiratory motion-management techniques were compared in terms of doses to the target volume and organs at risk...

This study aimed to assess the dosimetric differences between iodine-125 seed stereotactic brachytherapy (SBT) and stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) in the treatment of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). An SBT plan and an SBRT plan were generated for eleven patients with T1-2 NSCLC. Prescription of the dose and fractionation (fr) for SBRT was 48Gy/4fr. The planning aim for SBT was D90 (dose delivered to 90% of the target volume)≥120Gy. Student's paired t test was used to compare the dosimetric parameters...

INTRODUCTION: Stereotactic body radiotherapy delivers hypofractionated irradiation with high dose per fraction through complex treatment techniques. The increased complexity leads to longer dose delivery times for each fraction. The purpose of this study is to investigate the impact of prolonged fraction delivery time with high-dose hypofractionation on the killing of cultured ACHN cells. METHODS AND MATERIALS: The radiobiological characteristics and repair half-time of human ACHN renal cell carcinoma cell line were studied with clonogenic assays...

Most patients with hepatocellular carcinoma present with intermediate to advanced disease, where curative therapies are no longer an option. These patients with intermediate to advanced disease represent a heterogeneous population with regard to tumor burden, liver function, and performance status. While the Barcelona Clinic Liver Cancer (BCLC) staging system offers guidelines for the management of these patients, strict adherence to these guidelines may limit treatment options for these patients. Several locoregional therapies exist for these patients, including conventional transarterial chemoembolization (cTACE), transarterial embolization (TAE), drug-eluting embolization (DEE), and radioembolization...

Prostate cancer affects over 200000 men annually in the United States alone. The role of conventionally fractionated external beam radiation therapy (RT) is well established as a treatment option for eligible prostate cancer patients; however, the use of stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT) in this setting is less well defined. Within the past decade, there have been a number of studies investigating the feasibility of SBRT as a potential treatment option for prostate cancer patients. SBRT has been well studied in other disease sites, and the shortened treatment course would allow for greater convenience for patients...

PURPOSE: Magnetic resonance image-guided radiotherapy (MRgRT) has the potential to increase the accuracy of radiation treatment delivery. Several research groups have developed hybrid MRgRT devices differing by radiation source used, magnetic field orientation and strength. In this work, we investigate the impact of different magnetic field orientations and strengths on the treatment planning of non-small cell lung cancer patients (NSCLC). METHODS: A framework using the in-house developed treatment planning system matRad and the EGSnrc Monte Carlo code system was introduced to perform Monte Carlo based treatment planning in the presence of a magnetic field...

PURPOSE/OBJECTIVE: Local treatment options for patients with in-field non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) recurrence following conventionally fractionated external beam radiation therapy (CF-EBRT) are limited. Stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) is a promising modality to achieve reasonable local control, although toxicity remains a concern. MATERIALS/METHODS: Patients previously treated with high-dose CF-EBRT (≥59.4 Gy, ≤3 Gy/fraction) for non-metastatic NSCLC who underwent salvage SBRT for localized ultra-central in-field recurrence were included in this analysis...

Stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) is an important modality in treatment of tumors. We hypothesized that SBRT can achieve excellent local control with limited toxicity in patients with thymic tumors. A single-institution prospective study was performed with 32 patients who underwent SBRT of thymoma and thymic carcinoma between 2005 and 2014. Thirty-two patients including 39 target lesions were analyses in this study. Almost half of the patients (46.9%) were type C by histopathology and more than half (56...
