Ultrasound And Nerve Stimulator Guided Deep Nerve Block

The study find that the Ultrasound guidance might decrease the incidence of local anesthetics systemic toxicity (LAST); for many peripheral nerve blocks compared with nerve stimulator guidance. However; it remains uncertain whether ultrasound guidance is superior to nerve stimulator guidance for deep nerve block of the lower extremity. This study is design to investigate whether…

Adaptive Proton Therapy Is Key To Innovative Planning Approaches

The researches find that the For proton therapy of paranasal tumors, field directions avoiding volumes that might change during therapy are typically used. If the plan is optimize on the daily anatomy using daily adapt proton therapy ;(DAPT) however, field directions crossing the nasal cavities might be feasible. Therefore In this study; we investigate the…

Radiotherapy Beneficial In Treating Prostate Cancer

The study find that The Finnish Finn Prostata X study investigated whether radiotherapy administered after the removal of the prostate benefited patients whose cancer had spread to the surface of the prostate or beyond the capsule that surrounds the prostate. At the moment; treatment practices in these situations vary. The randomised study carried out in…

Mammogram Centers Add Soft Touches To Help Put Patients

The researches find that the cancer once after going through radiation and having a mastectomy on her right side, so having a mammogram can stir up nerves for the 13-year cancer survivor. The 66-year-old from Grove City just had her yearly cancer screening on her left breast and she recently sat patiently by herself on…

Radiotherapy Help Treat Locally Advanced Prostate Cancer

The Finnish FinnProstataX study investigated whether radiotherapy administered after the removal of the prostate benefited patients whose cancer had spread to the surface of the prostate or beyond the capsule that surrounds the prostate. At the moment, treatment practices in these situations vary. The randomized study carried out in 2004-2012 included 250 patients. Of these 250 patients,…

Modified Radiotherapy Less Likely To Damage Healthy Cells

The researches find that the A modified way of concentrating radiotherapy dose in tumour while minimising damage to healthy cells has been proposed in a recent research. The study published in the Journal ;of Scientific Reports proposes that focusing high-energy particle beams on a small spot deep inside the body could potentially; enable clinicians to…

New Way Of Concentrating Radiotherapy Dose In Tumors

The study find that the A new way of concentrating radiotherapy dose in tumors, while minimizing damage to healthy cells, has been proposed in research led by scientists at the University of Strathclyde. The study proposes that focusing high-energy particle beams on a small spot deep inside the body could potentially enable clinicians to target…

A Highly Effective PET Therapy For The Treatment Of AKI

The researches find that the  POM radiolabel with zirconium-89 (89Zr) is intravenously inject into AKI mice. Longitudinal PET imaging was then perform at various time points to monitor the renal accumulation in vivo. Therefore The therapeutic value was evaluated by dynamic positron emission PET scans with gallium-68 (68Ga)-EDTA, blood urea nitrogen and creatinine measurements, H&E…

Radio Therapy for Oral Mucositis in Cancer Patients

The researches find that the photobiomodulation (PBM); can be use for oral mucositis occurring as a side effect of cancer treatment with radiotherapy. However; PBM is not on the radar of most oncologists in the United States, who tend to use mouthwashes for this adverse event. But that may change now that PBM is recommend…

Role Of Adjuvant Radiotherapy in the Management of Meningioma

The researches find that the The aim of this study was to illustrate the demographic characteristics of meningioma patients and observe the effect of adjuvant radiation therapy on survival by using the Surveillance, therefore Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) database. More specifically; the authors aimed to answer the question of whether adjuvant radiotherapy following resection…

Scanning Proton Therapy For Skull Base And Head

To assess the radiation-induced optic neuropathy (RION) prevalence, following high dose pencil beam scanning proton therapy (PBS PT) to skull base and head and neck (H&N) tumours Treatment of aggressive intracranial tumours often require high radiation doses, the delivery of which can be limited by the dose constraints to neighboring organs at risk (OARs), such…

Chemotherapy Followed By Response Adaptive Radiotherapy

To assess the efficacy of upfront chemotherapy followed by response-adapted reduced-dose/ reduced-volume radiotherapy (RT) for intracranial germinoma. Therefore Materials and methods: Ninety-one patients from five institutions are register in the KSPNO G051/G081 Protocol. Because Germinomas were classified as solitary or multiple/disseminated diseases; and upfront chemotherapy is administer. But For all patients with multiple or disseminated…
