OBJECTIVE This study aims to assess the outcomes of adjuvant interstitial brachytherapy (BT) to the tumor bed for oral cavity squamous cell carcinoma (SCC), and to compare the oncological outcomes and toxicity profile of low-dose-rate (LDR) and pulsed-dose-rate (PDR) BT. DESIGN This retrospective single-center study included all patients who underwent postoperative LDR- or PDR-BT to the tumor bed as the sole adjuvant treatment for an oral tongue or floor of the mouth SCC between January 2000 and...

The new Medical Licensing Regulations 2025 (Arztliche Approbationsordnung, AApprO) will soon be passed by the Federal Council (Bundesrat) and will be implemented step by step by the individual faculties in the coming months. The further development of medical studies essentially involves an orientation from fact-based to competence-based learning and focuses on practical, longitudinal and interdisciplinary training. Radiation oncology and radiation therapy are important components of therapeutic...

PURPOSE To develop an automated treatment planning approach for whole breast irradiation with simultaneous integrated boost using an automated hybrid VMAT class solution (HVMAT). MATERIALS AND METHODS Twenty-five consecutive patients with left breast cancer received 50 Gy (2 Gy/fraction) to the whole breast and an additional simultaneous 10 Gy (2.4 Gy/fraction) to the tumor cavity. Ipsilateral lung, heart, and contralateral breast were contoured as main organs-at-risk. HVMAT plans were inversely...

Background null The optimal radiotherapy regimen is not yet defined in the setting of oligorecurrent prostate cancer (oligorPC). There is evidence of high variability in treatment protocols among different centers worldwide, and no international consensus guidelines on treatment volumes, radiation schedules, and techniques. The purpose of the present retrospective study is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of involved-pelvic-node stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT) for oligorPC. null Materia...
The prognosis of an early relapse of diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) appears to be poor following autologous stem cell transplantation (ASCT). The aim of this study is to contribute data to the open question on whether additional radiotherapy can improve the outcome. Forty-eight patients with an early relapse (median 4 months after the end of initial immunochemotherapy, range 1–11) of DLBCL have been treated in our institution with high-dose therapy (usually the BEAM protocol) and ASCT sin...

PURPOSE Retroperitoneal (RPS) sarcomas are associated with poor local and abdominal tumor control. However, the benefit of preoperative radio- or chemotherapy alone for these entities is currently unclear. Moreover, as intermediate- and high-grade sarcomas have a tendency toward early metastasis, exploration of neoadjuvant strategies is of high importance. This analysis reports the results of our 20-year single-institution experience with preoperative neoadjuvant concurrent chemoradiation. METHO...

Total skin electron beam therapy (TSEBT) is still a technical and therapeutic challenge today. Thus, we developed TSEBT using a sweeping-beam technique. For treatment delivery, a linear accelerator Versa HD (ELEKTA, Stockholm, Sweden) with high-dose-rate electrons (HDRE) was used with a dose rate of 9000 MU/min. Dosimetry quality assurance was performed by multiple measurements with film dosimetry, 2D array, and Roos chamber. Clinical experience shows that treatment durations of 75 to 90 min are...

PURPOSE Randomized comparison of the effect of radiotherapy on painful osteoarthritis (OA) applying a standard-dose vs. a very-low-dose regime PATIENTS AND METHODS: Patients with OA of the hand and knee joints were included. Further inclusion criteria: symptoms for more than 3 months, favorable general health status, age above 40 years. Patients with prior local radiotherapy, trauma, rheumatoid arthritis, or vascular diseases were excluded. After randomization (every joint was randomized separat...
