Purpose The aim of this study is to evaluate the applicability and repeatability of the Low Contrast Detectability (LCD) statistical method in angiography systems [1] , [2] . Methods A phantom consisting of a square aluminum target and a 5-step-wedge (0.2–1 mmAl) was built according to Radice et al. [2] . Different acquisition protocols were used (low, normal and high dose fluoroscopy; abdomen and cerebtal fluorography), and measurements were repeated for several thicknesses of PolyMethylMethAcr...

Purpose To evaluate Target Volumes (TVs) and Organs At Risk (OARs) irradiation in endometrial adenocarcinoma (EADK) Volumetric-Modulated-Arc-Therapy Simultaneous Integrated Boost (SIB-VMAT) plans using Conformity Indices (CIs). Methods 10 EADK patients treated with SIB-VMAT (45 Gy (TV45) on pelvic lymph-node and 50 Gy (TV50) on vaginal vault were selected. Median TV45 and TV50 were 1106.1 cc (774.1–1699.3 cc) and 504.5 cc (346.1–643.5 cc) respectively. Bones, rectum, bladder, small bowel and fem...

Purpose To test the hypothesis that the volume of pelvic bone marrow (PBM) receiving 10–20-30–40 Gy (V10-V20-V30-V40) and median dose is associated with hematologic toxicity (HT) in gynecological cancer patients treated with concurrent chemoradiotherapy. Methods and materials We analyzed 29 consecutive gynecological cancer patients (21 only RT and 8 with concurrent chemotherapy) and volumetric-modulated-arc radiation therapy at the Varese Hospital between 2013 and 2015. The median radiation dose...

Purpose To evaluate the urethral tolerance in postoperative adaptive endocavitary High-Dose-Rate brachytherapy (HDR-BT) in endometrial adenocarcinoma (EADK), correlating local toxicity with urethral dose and HDR-BT parameters. Methods Between 2012 and 2017, 29 post-hysterectomy EADK patients were consecutively treated with endocavitary HDR-BT. The median total dose was 35.0 (21.0–41.5) Gy delivered in 6 (3–6) fraction of median 6.5 (5.5–7.0) Gy. Urethra was contoured on CT-images acquired before...
