  1. 1. Clinical application of intensity and energy modulated radiotherapy with photon and electron beams

    University dissertation from Umeå : Strålningsvetenskaper

    Author : Xiangkui Mu; Umeå universitet.; [2005]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Oncology; Radiotherapy; IMXT; IMET; IMPT; proton beams; electron beams; treatment planning; cancer induction; side-effects; fraction time; intensity modulated radiotherapy; Onkologi; MEDICINE Surgery Oncology; MEDICIN Kirurgi Onkologi; Oncology; onkologi;

    Abstract : In modern, advanced radiotherapy (e.g. intensity modulated photon radiotherapy, IMXT) the delivery time for each fraction becomes prolonged to 10-20 minutes compared with the conventional, commonly 2-5 minutes. The biological effect of this prolongation is not fully known. READ MORE

  2. 2. ARCON in experimental and clinical radiotherapy

    University dissertation from Umeå : Strålningsvetenskaper

    Author : Ana Maria Rojas Callejas; Umeå universitet.; [2004]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Oncology; ARCON; tumours; normal tissues; radiosensitization; carbogen; nicotinamide; repair inhibition; therapeutic gain; rodents; humans; Onkologi; MEDICINE Surgery Oncology; MEDICIN Kirurgi Onkologi; Oncology; onkologi;

    Abstract : xHypoxia and repopulation of tumour clonogens are two important determinants of treatment outcome in radiotherapy. In general clinical evidence indicates that loco-regional control may be reduced with long overall treatment times and for tumours with low pre-treatment levels of oxygen. READ MORE
