Objectives/hypothesis To assess the disease control, survival rates, and prognostic factors of exclusive surgical treatment for patients with pT3 N0 laryngeal squamous cell carcinoma (LSCC). Study design Multicentric retrospective cohort study. Methods Multicentric retrospective case series of previously untreated patients with pT3 R0N0 LSCC, who received exclusive surgery between 2011 and 2019. Tumor location; subsite involvement; grading; and lymphatic, vascular, and perineural invasion were r...

Abstract Purpose A radiomics features classifier was implemented to evaluate segmentation quality of heart structures. A robust feature set sensitive to incorrect contouring would provide an ideal quantitative index to drive autocontouring optimization. Methods Twenty-five cardiac sub-structures were contoured as regions of interest in 36 CTs. Radiomic features were extracted from manually-contoured (MC) and Hierarchical-Clustering automatic-contouring (AC) structures. A robust feature-set was i...

ABSTRACT Introduction : In this observational, retrospective, multi-center study, we aim to assess the safety of the combination of local metastasis-directed radiotherapy (RT) and immunotherapy in a cohort of advanced NSCLC (aNSCLC) patients. Material and Methods : We collected clinical data of aNSCLC patients who received concomitant RT and anti-PD1/PD-L1 inhibitors in seven Italian centers from September 2015 to June 2019. Concomitant RT was defined as delivered ≤4 weeks before or after the fi...

The objective of the paper was to assess real-life experience in the management of head and neck cancer (HNC) patients during the COVID-19 pandemic in radiotherapy departments and to evaluate the variability in terms of adherence to American Society of Radiation Oncology (ASTRO) and European Society for Radiotherapy and Oncology (ESTRO) recommendations. In May 2020, an anonymous 30-question online survey, comparing acute phase of outbreak and pre-COVID-19 period, was conducted. Two sections expl...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Randomized trials confirmed the efficacy and the safety of hypofractionated whole breast irradiation (HF-WBI) in patients with early-stage breast cancer. However, the role of HF-WBI in patients with DCIS after breast conserving surgery has not yet been clearly established in prospective randomized trials. The aim of this study was to evaluate if HF-WBI can be considered comparable to conventionally fractionated (CF)-WBI in DCIS patients. MATERIALS AND METHODS The analysis ...

Objective. Over the years, evidence-based data and technical improvements have consolidated the central role of radiation therapy (RT) in head and neck cancer (HNC) treatment, even in the elderly. This survey aimed to describe the management of the elderly HNC patients among Italian Radiation Oncology Departments (RODs) and provide possible suggestions for improvement. Methods. An online survey based on 43 questions was sent to RODs via email. For each RODs, a radiation oncologist with expertise...

Response assessment to definitive non-surgical treatment for head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC) is centered on the role of 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET-CT) 12 weeks after treatment. The 5-point Hopkins score is the only qualitative system available for standardized reporting, albeit limited by suboptimal positive predictive value (PPV). The aim of our study was to explore the feasibility and assess the diagnostic accuracy of an exp...
