  1. 1. Dosimetric effects of breathing motion in radiotherapy

    Author : Anneli Edvardsson; Lund Medicinsk strålningsfysik; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; radiotherapy; breathing motion; DIBH; interplay effects; VMAT; proton therapy; breast cancer; Hodgkin’s lymphoma; liver; dosimetry; treatment planning; medical physics;

    Abstract : The goal of radiotherapy is to deliver a homogeneous high dose of radiation to a tumour while minimising the dose to the surrounding healthy tissue. To achieve this, increasingly advanced treatment techniques, such as volumetric modulated arc therapy (VMAT) and proton therapy, have been developed. READ MORE

  2. 2. Quantitative methods for tumor imaging with dynamic PET

    Author : Ida Häggström; Anne Larsson; Mikael Karlsson; Lennart Johansson; Jens Sörensen; Magnus Dahlbom; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURAL SCIENCES; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Dynamic positron emission tomography; PET; tumor imaging; compartment modeling; Monte Carlo; radiofysik; radiation physics;

    Abstract : There is always a need and drive to improve modern cancer care. Dynamic positron emission tomography (PET) offers the advantage of in vivo functional imaging, combined with the ability to follow the physiological processes over time. READ MORE

  3. 3. Helical tomotherapy for total marrow and total skin irradiation : Optimisation, verification, and clinical results

    Author : André Änghede Haraldsson; Lund Medicinsk strålningsfysik; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; ALL; Leukemia; radiotherapy; hematology; Oncology; Leukemia; radiotherapy; Tomotherapy; Oncology; ALL;

    Abstract : In modern cancer therapy, radiotherapy (RT) is a vital part of most treatments. Most RT treatments in Sweden are performed using intensity-modulated radiotherapy (IMRT) with fixed or dynamic arc delivery. The dose gradients outside the target are steep, the margins are small, and the treatment delivery is complicated. READ MORE

  4. 4. Relative biological effectiveness in proton therapy: accounting for variability and uncertainties

    Author : Jakob Ödén; Iuliana Toma-Dasu; Kjell Eriksson; Radhe Mohan; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; proton therapy; relative biological effectiveness; linear energy transfer; proton track-end optimisation; radiation-induced toxicity; medicinsk strålningsfysik; Medical Radiation Physics;

    Abstract : Radiation therapy is widely used for treatments of malignant diseases. The search for the optimal radiation treatment approach for a specific case is a complex task, ultimately seeking to maximise the tumour control probability (TCP) while minimising the normal tissue complication probability (NTCP).

  5. 5. Imaging diffusional variance by MRI [public] : The role of tensor-valued diffusion encoding and tissue heterogeneity

    Author : Filip Szczepankiewicz; Lund Medicinsk strålningsfysik; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Diffusion MRI provides a non-invasive probe of tissue microstructure. We recently proposed a novel method for diffusion-weighted imaging, so-called q-space trajectory encoding, that facilitates tensor-valued diffusion encoding. READ MORE
