BACKGROUND Salivary gland cancer (SGC) is rare and a heterogeneous type of cancer. Prospective randomized trials are lacking. No guideline focusing on standard procedures of radiotherapy (RT) in the treatment of SGC exists. Therefore, we surveyed the members of the German Society of Radiation Oncology (DEGRO) to gain information about current therapeutic strategies of SGC. METHODS An anonymous questionnaire was designed and made available on the online platform The correspondi...
PURPOSE There are no safety-focused trials on stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT) for localized prostate cancer. This prospective 3‑year phase II trial used binomial law to validate the safety and efficacy of SBRT with stringent organ at risk dose constraints that nevertheless permitted high planning target volume doses. METHODS All consecutive ≥ 70-year-old patients with localized prostate adenocarcinoma who underwent SBRT between 2014 and 2018 at the National Radiotherapy Center in Luxembour...

PURPOSE External-beam radiotherapy (EBRT) is the predominant method for localized brain radiotherapy (LBRT) after resection of brain metastases (BM). Intraoperative radiotherapy (IORT) with 50-kV x‑rays is an alternative way to focally irradiate the resection cavity after BM surgery, with the option of shortening the overall treatment time and limiting normal tissue irradiation. METHODS We retrospectively analyzed the outcomes of all patients who underwent neurosurgical resection of BM and 50-kV...

Purpose null Treatment of muscle-invasive bladder cancer (MIBC) remains challenging, especially for elderly and/or comorbid patients. Patients who are unfit for or refuse surgery should receive bladder-preserving multimodality treatment (BPMT), consisting of transurethral resection of the bladder tumor (TURB) followed by combined chemoradiotherapy (CRT). We aimed to investigate the effectiveness of vinorelbine, a chemotherapeutic agent not routinely used for MIBC, in patients referred to CRT who...

BACKGROUND Functional planning based merely on 4DCT ventilation imaging has limitations. In this study, we proposed a radiotherapy planning strategy based on 4DCT ventilation imaging and CT density characteristics. MATERIALS AND METHODS For 20 stage III non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) patients, clinical plans and lung-avoidance plans were generated. Through deformable image registration (DIR) and quantitative image analysis, a 4DCT ventilation map was calculated. High-, medium-, and low-venti...

Purpose null Data on management of locally recurrent pancreatic cancer (LRPC) after primary resection are limited. Recently, surprisingly high overall survival rates were reported after irradiation with carbon ions. Here, we report on our clinical experience using carbon ion radiotherapy as definitive treatment in LRPC at the Heidelberg Ion-Beam Therapy Center (HIT). null Methods null Between 2015 and 2019, we treated 13 patients with LRPC with carbon ions with a median total dose of 48 Gy (RBE)...

In Germany, Austria, and Switzerland, pretreatment radiotherapy quality control (RT-QC) for tumor bed boost (TB) in non-metastatic medulloblastoma (MB) was not mandatory but was recommended for patients enrolled in the SIOP PNET5 MB trial between 2014 and 2018. This individual case review (ICR) analysis aimed to evaluate types of deviations in the initial plan proposals and develop uniform review criteria for TB boost. A total of 78 patients were registered in this trial, of whom a subgroup of 6...

PURPOSE Brainstem radionecrosis is an important issue during the irradiation of tumors of the posterior fossa. The aim of the present study is to analyze postsurgical geometrical variations of tumor bed (TB) and brainstem (BS) and their impact on dosimetry. METHODS Retrospective collection of data from pediatric patients treated at a single institution. Availability of presurgical magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) was verified; availability of at least two postsurgical MRIs was considered a furth...

PURPOSE This study's objective was the comparison of external beam radiotherapy (EBRT) and I‑125 seed brachytherapy regarding clinical outcome and development of side effects. PATIENTS AND METHODS In all, 462 localized intermediate-risk prostate cancer patients treated between 2000 and 2019 at our department using either I‑125 seed brachytherapy or EBRT with a dose of 74 or 78 Gy were included: 297 patients were treated with EBRT and 165 with seeds. Biochemical no evidence of disease (bNED) rate...
