Purpose The aim of this study was to compare planning target volume (PTV) defined on respiratory-gated positron emission tomography (PET)/CT (RG-PET/CT) to PTV based on ungated free-breathing CT and to evaluate if RG-PET/CT can be useful to personalize PTV by tailoring the target volume to the lesion motion in lung cancer patients.

The usage of functional data in radiation therapy (RT) treatment planning (RTP) process is currently the focus of significant technical, scientific, and clinical development. Positron emission tomography (PET) using ( 18 F) fluorodeoxyglucose is being increasingly used in RT planning in recent years. Fluorodeoxyglucose is the most commonly used radiotracer for diagnosis, staging, recurrent disease detection, and monitoring of tumor response to therapy (Lung Cancer 2012;76:344-349; Lung Cancer 20...

Purpose To characterize changes in standardized uptake value (SUV) in positron emission tomography (PET) scans and determine the pace of normal tissue regeneration after stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) for solid tumor liver metastases. Methods and Materials We reviewed records of patients with liver metastases treated with SBRT to ≥40 Gy in 3-5 fractions. Evaluable patients had pretreatment PET and ≥1 post-treatment PET. Each PET/CT scan was fused to the planning computed tomography (...

Over the past decade, there has been an increasing use of radiotherapy (RT) for the treatment of liver metastases. Most often, ablative doses are delivered to focal liver metastases with the goal of local control and ultimately improving survival. In contrast, low-dose whole-liver RT may be used for the palliation of symptomatic diffuse metastases. This review examines the available clinical data for both approaches. The review found that RT is effective both for local ablation of focal liver me...

Purpose The potential role of four-dimensional (4D) positron emission tomography (PET)/computed tomography (CT) in radiation treatment planning, relative to standard three-dimensional (3D) PET/CT, was examined. Methods and Materials Ten patients with non–small-cell lung cancer had sequential 3D and 4D [ 18 F]fluorodeoxyglucose PET/CT scans in the treatment position prior to radiation therapy. The gross tumor volume and involved lymph nodes were contoured on the PET scan by use of three different...

Purpose: Positron emission tomography (PET) of lung tumors suffers from breathing-motion induced blurring. Respiratory-correlated PET ameliorates motion blurring and enables visualization of lung tumor functional uptake throughout the breathing cycle but has achieved limited clinical use in radiotherapy planning. In this work, the authors propose a process for generating a gated PET maximum intensity projection (MIP), a breathing-phase projection of the 4D image set comprising gated PET images, ...

Purpose To determine the additional value of fluorodeoxyglucose-positron emission tomography (PET) for clinical target volume definition in the planning of computed tomography (CT)-guided interstitial brachytherapy for liver metastases. Patients and Methods A total of 19 patients with liver metastases from colorectal cancer treated in 25 sessions were included in the present study. All patients had undergone fluorodeoxyglucose-PET for patient evaluation before interstitial CT-guided brachytherap...

Liver SBRT is a therapeutic option for the treatment of HCC in patients not eligible for other local therapies. We retrospectively report the outcomes of a cohort of consecutive patients treated with SBRT for HCC at the Montpellier Cancer Institute. Between March 2013 and December 2018, 66 patients were treated with image-guided liver SBRT using VMAT and real-time adaptive tumor gating in our institute. The main endpoints considered in this study were local control, disease-free survival, overal...

Purpose Hybrid PET/MRI has been increasingly incorporated into the practice of radiation oncologists since it contains both anatomical and biological data and may bring about personalized radiation plans for each patient. The objective of this study was to evaluate the feasibility of GTV delineation from hybrid PET/MRI compared with that from current-practice MRI during radiotherapy planning in patients with colorectal liver metastases. Patients and Methods Twenty-four patients (thirty lesions) ...

For oncological management or radiotherapy planning, reliable staging tools are essential. Recent development of quinoline-based ligands targeting cancer-associated fibroblasts demonstrated promising preclinical and clinical results. The current study aimed to evaluate the role of fibroblast activation protein inhibitors (FAPI)-positron-emission tomography (PET)/computed tomography (CT) for primary malignancies located within the lower gastrointestinal tract (LGT) as a very first clinical analys...

Resume La radiotherapie stereotaxique hepatique est une technique de traitement en developpement pour le traitement des tumeurs primitives et secondaires. Sa mise en œuvre est complexe du fait des particularites de l’organe traite et des comorbidites des patients. Elle represente cependant une opportunite de traitement efficace pour beaucoup de patients en impasse therapeutique. Son niveau de preuve est juge insuffisant par la Haute Autorite de Sante (HAS) pour une large diffusion en dehors des ...

Abstract Purpose The daily variations in patient setup may cause beam range uncertainties. We evaluated the reproducibility of relative position between the patient and the treatment couch throughout the treatment course and assessed its effects on dose distributions when a beam passes through treatment couch using rotating gantry system. Methods We enrolled 1023 patients (=13072 fractions) treated by carbon-ion pencil beam scanning therapy. Seven treatment sites including prostate, head and nec...

INTRODUCTION: Radiotherapy is a cornerstone in the multimodality treatment of several gastrointestinal (GI) tumors. Positron-emission tomography (PET) has an established role in the diagnosis, response assessment and (re-)staging of these tumors. Nevertheless, the value of PET in adaptive radiotherapy remains unclear. This review focuses on the role of PET in adaptive radiotherapy, i.e. during the treatment course and in the delineation process. EVIDENCE ACQUISITION: The MEDLINE database was sea...

2-Deoxy-2-(18Fluorine)-fluoro-D-glucose (FDG) positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) is an integral part of lung carcinoma staging and frequently used in the assessment of solitary pulmonary nodules. However, a limitation of conventional 3D PET/CT when imaging the thorax is its susceptibility to motion artefact which blurs the signal from the lesion resulting in inaccurate representation of size and metabolic activity. Respiratory gated (4D) PET/CT aims to negate the effects o...

Abstract Aim To evaluate the different techniques used for liver metastases Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy (SBRT) planning. We especially focused on immobilization devices, motion management and imaging used for contouring. Background Although some guidelines exist, there is no consensus regarding the minimal requirements for liver SBRT treatments. Materials and methods We reviewed the main liver metastases SBRT publications and guidelines; and compared the techniques used for immobilizatio...
