A Mixed Integer Linear Programming Optimization Model for Capturing Expert Planning Style in Interstitial Low Dose Rate Prostate BrachytherapyDownload
Low dose rate (LDR) brachytherapy is a minimally invasive form of radiation therapy, used to treat prostate cancer, and it involves permanent implantation of radioactive sources (seeds) inside of the prostate gland. Treatment planning in brachytherapy involves a decision making process for the...
Microbeam radiation therapy (MRT) is a pre-clinical type of radiation therapy that uses an array of high-dose microbeams to treat solid tumours. An intense, quasi-parallel synchrotron beam is collimated to create microbeams several 10s of μm wide, and separated by 100s of μm. Animal studies...
Background: A standard treatment option for locally advanced rectal cancer includes 5-6 weeks of neoadjuvant chemoradiation (NACRT) followed by surgery about 6-8 weeks later. NACRT improves outcomes for rectal cancer patients but also causes acute toxicities which may impede quality of life...
The profession of radiation therapy is relatively new to the field of research and academic publishing. This is brief guide reviews some factors that may influence ones decision on which journal to publish in. We wrote this to assist novice researchers (in radiation therapy or otherwise) on their...
Real time image guided radiotherapy has been proposed by integrating an in-line 6 MV linear accelerator (linac) to a magnetic resonance (MR) imager in either a parallel or transverse configuration. In either configuration, magnetic interference in the linac is caused by its immersion in the...
