Abstract Isntroduction Head and neck reconstructive surgery using a flap is increasingly common. Best practices and outcomes for postoperative radiotherapy (poRT) with flaps have not been specified. We aimed to provide consensus recommendations to assist clinical decision-making highlighting areas of uncertainty in the presence of flaps. Material and methods Radiation, medical, and surgical oncologists were assembled from GORTEC and internationally with the Head and Neck Cancer International Gro...

Abstract Purpose The robustness against setup and motion uncertainties of gated four-dimensional restricted robust optimization (4DRRO) was investigated for hypofractionated carbon ion radiotherapy (CIRT) of lung tumors. Methods CIRT plans of 9 patients were optimized using 4DRRO strategy with 3 mm setup errors, 3% density errors and 3 breathing phases related to the gate window. The prescription was 60 Gy(RBE) in 4 fractions. Standard spots (SS) were compared to big spots (BS). Plans were recal...

Lombardy has represented the Italian and European epicenter of the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic. Although most clinical efforts within hospitals were diverted towards the care of virally infected patients, therapies for patients with cancer, including radiotherapy (RT), have continued. During both the first and second pandemic waves, several national and regional organizations provided Italian and Lombardian RT departments with detailed guidelines aimed at ensuring safe treatment...

Abstract Purpose To evaluate changes in diffusion and perfusion-related properties of white matter (WM) induced by proton therapy, which is capable of a greater dose sparing to organs at risk with respect to conventional X-ray radiotherapy, and to eventually expose early manifestations of delayed neuro-toxicities. Methods Apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) and IVIM parameters (D, D* and f) were estimated from diffusion-weighted MRI (DWI) in 46 patients affected by meningioma and treated with p...

INTRODUCTION Respiratory motion models establish a correspondence between respiratory-correlated (RC) 4-dimensional (4D) imaging and respiratory surrogates, to estimate time-resolved (TR) 3D breathing motion. To evaluate the performance of motion models on real patient data, a validation framework based on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is proposed, entailing the use of RC 4DMRI to build the model, and on both (i) TR 2D cine-MRI and (ii) additional 4DMRI data for testing intra-/inter-fraction ...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW The present review provides the reader with the state-of-the-art concepts of sinonasal oncology in view of the latest literature data. RECENT FINDINGS Most recent publications in sinonasal oncology assessed treatment timing, centralization, surgical approach, margin status, orbit/neck management, salvage strategies, emerging surgical technologies, intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT), volumetric modulated arc therapy (VMAT), particle radiotherapy, and neoadjuvant chemot...

PURPOSE To discuss the role of benzydamine in the prevention and treatment of radiation-induced oral mucositis (OM) in head and neck (H&N) cancer patients. This document represents an expert opinion paper on indications and key-role aspects in OM pathogenesis, prevention and treatment. ORAL MUCOSITIS OM represents a common side effect of chemotherapy (CHT) and radiotherapy (RT). It consists in a painful erythema involving the oral cavity mucosa, which may progress to ulceration. Five biologicall...
