Background null Variations in symptom development among breast cancer (BC) survivors are understudied. We examined: (Q1) Symptom trajectories of pain, fatigue, insomnia, breast, and arm symptoms in BC survivors, (Q2) possible patterns or cluster-like associations between trajectory classification of different symptoms, and (Q3) characteristics of survivors assigned to high-burden symptom trajectories. null Material and methods null Participants were 968 women (mean age = 59.6 years) treated for ...

Bolus serves as a tissue equivalent material that shifts the 95-100% isodose line towards the skin and subcutaneous tissue. The need for bolus for all breast cancer patients planned for postmastectomy radiation therapy (PMRT) has been questioned. The work was initiated by the faculty of the European SocieTy for Radiotherapy & Oncology (ESTRO) breast cancer courses and represents a multidisciplinary international breast cancer expert collaboration to optimize PMRT. Due to the lack of randomised t...

Abstract null null Delineation of target and ‘organ at risk (OAR)’ volumes is a critical part of modern radiation therapy planning, the next essential step after deciding the indication, patient discussion and image acquisition. Adoption of volume-based treatment planning for non-metastatic breast cancer has increased greatly along with the use of improved planning techniques, essential for modern therapy. However, identifying the volumes on a planning CT is no easy task. The current paper is wr...

BACKGROUND This study aimed to develop and validate an automatic multi-atlas segmentation method for delineating the heart and substructures in breast cancer radiation therapy (RT). MATERIAL AND METHODS The atlas database consisted of non-contrast-enhanced planning CT scans from 42 breast cancer patients, each with one manual delineation of the heart and 22 cardiac substructures. Half of the patients were scanned during free-breathing, the rest were scanned during a deep inspiration breath-hold....

Background null Lymphedema is a highly feared complication of breast cancer treatment, but the underlying complex mechanisms are still unknown. Thus, we investigated the lymphatic morphology and contractility in the lymphatic vessels of arms of high-risk breast cancer patients treated for node-positive early breast cancer. null Methods null In this prospective cohort study 32 women treated for unilateral node-positive breast cancer were enrolled and studied 36 ± 23 days after loco-regional radio...
