Optimize And Personalize Radiotherapy For Cancer Patients

The study find that A personalized approach to cancer treatment has become more common over the last several decades, with numerous targeted drugs approved to treat particular tumor types with specific mutations or patterns. However, this same personalized strategy has not translated to radiation therapy, and a one-size-fits-all approach for most patients is still common…

Radiotherapy Should Remain In The Public Domain

The researches find that the radiotherapy is a critical element of treatment for one third to one half of all patients with cancer. Over the past two decades, there have been significant improvements in the way radiotherapy is delivered, one of the most important being proton beam therapy that allows greater sparing of normal tissue…

Ultrasound Images Make Diagnosing Health Problems Possible

The researches find that the A University of Alberta spinoff company is hoping its new technology to analyze ultrasound images will make diagnosing health problems possible even from remote locations. “My vision is for a 21st-century stethoscope; a tool where you can look inside the body and use artificial intelligence to help people who are…

New Contrast Agent Might Make MRI Scan Safer

MRI Scan; Researchers at Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) have taken a key step forward in developing a new; possibly safer contrast agent for use in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) exams. Contrast enhanced MRI is a widely use diagnostic tool with over 30 million procedures perform annually. Currently, gadolinium-based contrast agents (GBCAs) are using for this…

Patients Need To Leave Canada To Get The Best Radiation Treatment

The researches find that the Imagine that your child has just been diagnosed with cancer. You are holding your son or daughter’s hand through recovery from surgery, having been told that your child needs months of chemotherapy, and then meeting with your oncologist to discuss radiation therapy. The oncologist says that your child can have…

Radiotherapy Cause Malfunction Of Implantable Cardioverter-Defibrillators

The study find that Radiotherapy has been shown to cause malfunction of implantable cardioverter-defibrillators, and there are few studies of implantable cardioverter-defibrillators and radiotherapy. We report an unusual case of small cell lung cancer in a patient with an implantable cardioverter-defibrillator in whom direct irradiation to the electrode ;and lead  not be avoid. We report…

Radiotherapy Versus Transoral Robotic Surgery And Neck Dissection

The researches find that the Transoral robotic surgery (TORS) with concurrent neck dissection has supplanted radiotherapy in the USA as the most common treatment for oropharyngeal squamous cell carcinoma (OPSCC), yet no randomised trials have compared these modalities. Therefore We aimed to evaluate differences in quality of life (QOL) 1 year after treatment. The ORATOR…

Ionizing Radiation Able To Cause Severe Damage To Cardiac Implantable

The researches find that the Ionizing radiation is able to cause severe damage to cardiac implantable electronic devices (CIED). In Germany, the DEGRO/DGK guideline recommends close monitoring of patients with CIEDs undergoing radiotherapy (RT). Nevertheless, especially in the era of intensity-modulated techniques and predominant use of 6 MV photons, errors of CIEDs are rare events. Therefore,…

Demonstrate Ion Heating By Plasma Oscillations For Fusion Energy

The study find that The fusion reaction between deuterium ion and tritium ion in a high-temperature plasma will be used in fusion reactors in the future. Therefore The high-energy alpha particles generated by the fusion reaction give their energy to the plasma, and this plasma self-heating maintains the high-temperature condition required for the fusion reaction.…

Holographic Lenses Focus Ultrasound For Brain Imaging

The researches find that the Ultrasound, an acoustic wave with frequencies greater than those audible to humans, is widely used in diagnostics and for imaging soft tissue, such as a developing fetus. Furthermore; it can be used as a non-invasive therapeutic technique, which operates by focusing high intensity waves to ablate fibroids or destroy cancerous…

Healthy Organs From Radiation Exposure During Particle Therapy

The researches find that the It can be difficult to treat malignant tumors using radical particle therapy if the tumor is too close to healthy organs. A team led by Professor Takumi Fukumoto and Professor Ryohei Sasaki; (Kobe University Graduate School of Medicine); has collaborated with Alfresa Pharma Corporation to develop a new medical device…
