Purpose Pathological complete response (pCR) following neoadjuvant chemoradiotherapy or radiotherapy in locally advanced rectal cancer (LARC) is reached in approximately 15–30% of cases, therefore it would be useful to assess if pretreatment of 18F-FDG PET/CT and/or MRI texture features can reliably predict response to neoadjuvant therapy in LARC.

The formation of CT images involves measurement of the X-ray transmission profile through a patient over a large number of views. Each profile is acquired by means of a fan-shaped X-ray beam that penetrates the body. The X-rays exiting the scanned patient’s body are recorded by a detector arc, generally consisting of 800–1000 detector elements, referred to as a detector row. Each projection of detector’s record (transmission profile) is a view at one position (angle) of the X-ray source. Multipl...

Abstract Purpose To apply StereoPHAN (Sun Nuclear), a phantom designed for end-to-end commissioning and QA on all parts of the SRS process, in detecting SRS/SBRT paths weaker parts. Methods Irradiations were performed with TrueBeam STx (Varian) equipped with HD MLC (0.25 cm), while measurements with an Exradin A26 ionization chamber (IC, 0.015 cc, Standard Imaging) inserted in the phantom. Percentage dose difference (%DD) was calculated to evaluate: response linearity with dose, repeatability, d...

Purpose To predict pathological response to neoadjuvant chemo-radiotherapy (CRT) in locally advanced rectal carcinoma (LARC), using a classifier based on texture features derived from MRI and PET acquisitions. Methods 47 patients with: (a) histologically diagnosis of LARC, (b) pre-treatment MRI and PET/CT, (c) neoadjuvant treatment consisting of 46–55 Gy in 23–30 RT fractions alone or in association with either infusional 5-FU or oral Capecitabine, and (d) total mesorectal excision were included...

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 ...

Abstract Purpose The aim of this paper is to characterize two different EPID-based solutions for pre-treatment VMAT quality assurance, the 2D portal dosimetry and the 3D projection technique. Their ability to catch the main critical delivery errors was studied. Methods Measurements were performed with a linac accelerator equipped with EPID aSi1000, Portal Dose Image Prediction (PDIP), and PerFRACTION softwares. Their performances were studied simulating perturbations of a reference plan through ...
