Purpose/Objective(s) null Pulmonary toxicity, and in particular radiation pneumonitis, remains a major limitation in the radiotherapy treatment of lung cancer patients. Functional avoidance radiotherapy proposes to use functional imaging to reduce pulmonary toxicity by designing radiotherapy treatment plans that reduce doses to functional regions of the lung. A novel form of lung functional imaging has been proposed that uses 4DCT imaging to calculating 4DCT-based lung ventilation (4DCT-ventilat...

PURPOSE/OBJECTIVE(S) Cancer patients often struggle to understand their own disease, symptoms, therapy and treatment-related toxicities with current educational methods. Virtual reality (VR) has the potential to intuitively convey abstract, complex information. Patients' review and interaction of their own imaging in 3D may improve comprehension. This study aimed to assess the impact of using VR with cancer patients and their caregivers. MATERIALS/METHODS In a single arm prospectively accrued mi...

Purpose/Objective(s) null A United States (US) radiation oncology (RO) curriculum, developed by key stakeholders using best practices for curriculum inquiry, is needed to guide residency education and qualifying examinations. Competency-based training, including entrustable professional activities (EPAs), provides an outcomes-based approach to modern graduate medical education. This study developed the first list of US RO EPAs and curricular content domains (CDs) to guide resident training and a...

In its current form, the Radiation Oncology Model (RO Model) prioritizes payment cuts over true value-based payment transformation. With significant modifications to the payment methodology, the reporting requirements, and recognition of the unique challenges faced by disadvantaged populations, the RO Model can protect patient access to care, preserve the physician-patient decision-making process, and ensure the delivery of high-quality, efficient radiation therapy treatment. The American Societ...
Locally ablative therapy for oligometastatic cancers can improve clinical outcomes in some settings, but the interventional procedures used will also add expense to the overall cost of care for individual patients. The physician's responsibility to be a thoughtful steward of health care resources obliges evaluations of the cost-effectiveness of local therapy when used in an effort to prolong duration of survival or improve quality of life in patients with metastatic cancer. The challenge for inv...

Abstract Importance Central Nervous System (CNS) metastasis from prostate cancer (PCA) is a rare event, but one with significant prognostic impact for those affected. There are limited data on its impact in contemporary cohorts treated with modern agents. Design A retrospective institutional review was performed to characterize the occurrence/outcome of PCA CNS metastasis on all cases of PCA from 2011-2017. A manual chart review was performed to confirm PCA CNS metastases in all cases identified...
