Abstract Background and purpose To assess bowel dose-volume relationships for acute patient-reported intestinal symptoms of patients treated with whole-pelvis intensity-modulated radiotherapy (WPRT) for prostate cancer. Materials and methods Complete data of 415 patients enrolled in a multi institute, prospective trial (#NCT02803086) treated with radical (31%), adjuvant (33%) and salvage (36%) intent at a median dose to pelvic nodes/lymph-nodal area of 53Gy were available. The most severe change...

AIM: Nowadays, no Quality Indicators (QI) have been proposed for Hyperthermia treatments. Starting from radiotherapy experience, the aim of this work is to adapt radiotherapy indicators to Hyperthermia and to propose a new specific set of QI in Hyperthermia field. MATERIAL AND METHODS: At first, radiotherapy quality indicators published in literature have been adapted to hyperthermia setting. Moreover, new specific indicators for the treatment of hyperthermia have been defined. To obtain the sta...

BACKGROUND: To evaluate the outcome of patients treated with salvage radiotherapy after radical prostatectomy and to investigate the effects of independent predictors on survival. METHODS: From January 2000 to December 2015, 234 patients with biochemical/clinical recurrences after radical prostatectomy were submitted to salvage radiotherapy (SRT). One hundred and fifty-seven patients (67%) received three-dimensional (3D) conformal radiotherapy while 77 patients (33%) were treated with intensity-...

Purpose Aim of the work is to model biochemical free survival at five year (5 y BCFS), based on literature clinical outcome data available until now and to evaluate parameters describing dose-fractionation radiosensitivity and repopulation. Methods Twenty-six data sets published in literature reporting the 5 y BCFS, dose scheduling, androgen deprivation therapy (ADT) and clinical variables, have been considered for a total of 17949 prostate cancer patients treated with external beam radiation th...

Purpose To improve quality and reduce variability of plans by developing a statistical ideal dose volume histogram (SI-DVH). From SI-DVH, a custom-built metric based on 21 functions was created to evaluate radiotherapic plans quantitatively. Methods CT images and ROIs of 37 VMAT prostate patients were analysed using the software PlanIQ (SNC). PlanIQ defines regions of DVH that are difficult to reach, based on an ideal dose gradient. According to this dose distribution, the minimal dose to OARs i...

Purpose The development of performance indicators in the field of certification/accreditation systems and quality benchmarking is evolving. The aim of this work is to propose a set of quality indicators for hyperthermia treatments in order to provide a continuous quality improvement. Methods A preliminary set of indicators was selected on the basis of evidenced critical issues. Three structure, six process and two outcome quality indicators were obtained. A multidisciplinary team involving diffe...

Purpose To evaluate the daily dose delivery discrepancies catching sources of errors in VMAT treatments with a 3D EPID-based in vivo dosimetry (IVD) system. Methods and materials The IVD software PerFRACTION (Sun Nuclear Corporation) was used. PerFRACTION is based on the information concerning MLC and collimator positions obtained by EPID images and on the information of log files, such as MUs and the gantry angles. From these informations, a collapsed-cone/superposition algorithm (SDC) is used ...
