A novel approach for three-dimensional (3D) surface reconstruction of anatomical structures in radiotherapy (RT) is presented. This is obtained from manual cross-sectional contours by combining both image voxel segmentation processing and implicit surface streaming methods using wavelets. 3D meshes reconstructed with the proposed approach are compared to those obtained from traditional triangulation algorithm. Qualitative and quantitative evaluations are performed in terms of mesh quality metric...

Abstract Purpose A prospective trial started in 2010, aiming at developing models for urinary toxicity and erectile dysfunction after radiotherapy for prostate cancer. This analysis is finalised at highlighting correlations between clinical/dosimetric factors and acute urinary specific symptoms, as measured by single questions of the International Prostate Symptom Score (IPSS). Materials/methods IPSS was prospectively collected before and at the end of radiotherapy; absolute weekly bladder dose–...

Background and purpose: DUE01 is an observational study aimed at developing predictive models of genito-urinary toxicity of patients treated for prostate cancer with conventional (1.8–2 Gy/fr, CONV) or moderate hypo-fractionation (2.35–2.7 Gy/fr, HYPO). The current analysis focused on the relationship between bladder DVH/DSH and the risk of International Prostate Symptoms Score (IPSS) P 15/20 at the end of radiotherapy.

AIMS AND BACKGROUND: The diagnostic and therapeutic approach to prostate cancer has evolved rapidly in last decades. Young professionals need an update about these recent developments in order to improve the care of patients treated in their daily clinical practice. METHODS: On May 18, 2013, AIRO Giovani (the young section of the Italian Association of Radiation Oncology) organized a multidisciplinary meeting involving, as speakers, several young physicians from many parts of Italy actively invo...
