Objective. To investigate predictors of patient-reported urinary incontinence (PRUI) in the first 2 years after post-prostatectomy radiotherapy (PORT) with particular emphasis on possible dose-effect relationships. Patients and Methods. Two-hundred-thirteen patients, whose clinical and dosimetric data were prospectively collected within a registered multi-institutional cohort study, underwent PORT with adjuvant (n=106) or salvage (n=107) intent with conventional (n=123, prescribed dose to the pr...

A global sensitivity analysis of a multiscale computational model of microvascular flow is presented. A total of 140 simulations have been completed and analyzed varying 6 input parameters and considering their effects on 7 output variables. Interestingly, the vascular network topology has been found as a determinant factor for both vasculature-related and interstitium-related quantities. Regarding the firsts, the vascular network topology has obtained a score of 5.5/6 and 6/6 for average and sp...

The purpose of this study was to establish a methodology and technology for the development of an MRI-based radiomic signature for prognosis of overall survival (OS) in nasopharyngeal cancer from non-endemic areas. The signature was trained using 1072 features extracted from the main tumor in T1-weighted and T2-weighted images of 142 patients. A model with 2 radiomic features was obtained (RAD model). Tumor volume and a signature obtained by training the model on permuted survival data (RADperm ...

Purpose:For prostate cancer treatment, comparable or superior biochemical control was reported when using External-Beam-Radiotherapy(EBRT) with High-Dose-Rate-Brachytherapy(HDRB)-boost, compared to dose-escalation with EBRT alone. The conformal doses produced by HDRB could allow further beneficial prostate dose-escalation, but increase in dose is limited by normal tissue toxicity. Previous works showed correlation between urethral dose and incidence of urinary toxicity, but there is a lack of es...

Abstract Purpose To perform bladder dose-surface map (DSM) analysis for (1) identifying symptom-related sub-surfaces (Ssurf) and evaluating their prediction capability of urinary toxicity, (2) comparing DSM with dose-volume map (DVM) (method effect), and (3) assessing the reproducibility of DSM (cohort effect). Methods and materials Urinary toxicities were prospectively analyzed for 254 prostate cancer patients treated with IMRT/IGRT at 78/80 Gy. DSMs were generated by unfolding bladder surfaces...

Abstract Background Radiation-induced organ dysfunction are frequently described by Normal Tissue Complication Probability models. The approximations of this radiobiological approach do not allow to consider the important role played by the microvasculature not only in the dose–response of the blood vessels but also of the organs where it is located. To this purpose, we presented a computational model that describes the fluid dynamics of microcirculation when the parameters of the network and th...

PURPOSE: Despite its increasing application, radiomics has not yet demonstrated a solid reliability, due to the difficulty in replicating analyses. The extraction of radiomic features from clinical MRI (T1w/T2w) presents even more challenges because of the absence of well-defined units (e.g. HU). Some preprocessing steps are required before the estimation of radiomic features and one of this is the intensity normalization, that can be performed using different methods. The aim of this work was t...

Abstract Background Active surveillance (AS) enrolment criteria and follow-up schedules for low-risk prostate cancer vary between institutions. However, uncertainty remains about adherence to these protocols. Objective To determine adherence to institution-specific AS inclusion criteria and follow-up schedules within the Movember Foundation’s Global Action Plan Prostate Cancer Active Surveillance (GAP3) initiative. Design, setting, and participants We retrospectively assessed the data of 15 101 ...
