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...

AbstractPurpose: The aim of this work was to determine how the spatial pattern of dose in the ano-rectal wall is related to late gastro-intestinal toxicity for prostate cancer patients treated with...

Purpose This study was designed to apply artificial neural network (ANN) classification methods for the prediction of late fecal incontinence (LFI) after high-dose prostate cancer radiation therapy and to develop a ready-to-use graphical tool. Materials and Methods In this study, 598 men recruited in 2 national multicenter trials were analyzed. Information was recorded on comorbidity, previous abdominal surgery, use of drugs, and dose distribution. Fecal incontinence was prospectively evaluated ...

Purpose Development of NTCP models of late severe urinary symptoms after radical RT for prostate cancer (PCa). Methods Patients were enrolled in a prospective, multicentre, observational trial in 2010–2014 and treated with conventional (74–80 Gy at 1.8–2 Gy/fr) or moderately hypofractionated IMRT (65–75.2 Gy at 2.2–2.7 Gy/fr). Bladder dose-surface histograms were corrected to 2 Gy/fr equivalent doses (EQD2) and reduced to Equivalent Uniform Doses at varying α / β and n. Urethral stricture requir...

Purpose To develop a modelling procedure for late rectal bleeding (LRB) that goes beyond maximum likelihood model fitting of data. Thus, to create a metamodel for grade 2–3 (G23) and grade 3 (G3) LRB starting from literature evidence and validate it on a large population. Methods Metamodelling allows to highlight specific features of the model itself. Characteristics that predictive models for LRB have in common are: the global harmony of radiobiological parameters (volume effect parameter, n, s...
