Radiobiology of pulsed dose rates

Proceedings of the 22nd Annual International Conference of the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society (Cat. No.00CH37143), 2000

Any departure from CLDR will yield an increased biological effect, which is greater for tissues with smaller /spl alpha///spl beta/ ratios and shorter T/sub 1/2/ of repair. The Relative Effectiveness (RE=1+g.d/(/spl beta///spl alpha/)) for late responding tissues will increase more than the RE for early responding tissues including tumors. This could obviously lead to a reduced therapeutic ratio. Fortunately the ...


Septa design study for volumetric imaging in positron emission tomography

2001 IEEE Nuclear Science Symposium Conference Record (Cat. No.01CH37310), 2001

  • Experiences with Superficial Hyperthermia in the Treatment of Patients with Head and Neck Cancers

    In this paper is presented our longstanding experience with combination of teleradiotherapy and superficial hyperthermia in the treatment of patients with head and neck cancers, especially in cases with superficial tumors or lymph node metastases, in the Institute of Radiation Oncology in Prague. Microwave thermotherapy - hyperthermia in combination with other treatment methods (mainly with teleradiotherapy) is currently very effective and important method for cancer treatment. Technical equipment for before- mentioned therapeutic method in this clinical working place is described as well. The treatment results were evaluated after 1-2 month after end of treatment series by various examination methods. They are part of this paper as well.

  • Fast and easy mapping of relational data to RDF for rapid learning health care

    This abstract describes a system that supports the creation and validation of relational data to ontologies. The proposed system is developed for rapid learning health care (RLHC), i.e., an evidence based approach to train cancer prediction models on clinical care data that is stored in multiple networked hospitals. Since clinical care data cannot leave the hospital due to privacy issues, distributed (machine) learning can be used, where the models are transferred, rather than the actual patient data. This requires clinical care data to be represented in a findable, accessible, interoperable and reusable (FAIR) manner. The proposed system uses an approach called Ontology Based Data Access (OBDA) to query the hospital data. To this end the relational data is mapped to a conceptual layer in the form of ontologies, i.e., shared vocabularies. These ontologies represent the meaning and values of the data while hiding the complicated structure of the original data sources. Currently, the creation of these mappings forms an obstacle in RLHC, as it requires considerable effort and knowledge from users, and validation of the mappings is difficult.

  • Radiobiology of pulsed dose rates

    Any departure from CLDR will yield an increased biological effect, which is greater for tissues with smaller /spl alpha///spl beta/ ratios and shorter T/sub 1/2/ of repair. The Relative Effectiveness (RE=1+g.d/(/spl beta///spl alpha/)) for late responding tissues will increase more than the RE for early responding tissues including tumors. This could obviously lead to a reduced therapeutic ratio. Fortunately the effect is small (less than 10%) unless doses per pulse greater than 1 Gy are used. Dose-per-pulse is paramount (together with total dose) in determining the biological effect. The effect of between-pulse interval is next in importance, (longer intervals helping therapeutic ratio but not if fewer and larger pulses are used). The influence of duration of pulses and dose-rate within each pulse is less. In tissues with the shortest half-times of repair (less than 0.5 hours) the biological effect will be greater for PDR than for CLDR. The authors show here that there are no consistent differences between half-times for tumors and for normal tissues. The effect of "office-hours" PDR is very close to that of the same size and number of pulses given with standard intervals continuously, because there will be only a few overlong (overnight) intervals compared with many more standard short intervals. Late complications will be ameliorated more than tumor cell kill by increasing the intervals between pulses without increasing their size. Probably the most valuable parts of this Handout are the Tables and the References.

  • Septa design study for volumetric imaging in positron emission tomography

    Positron emission tomography (PET) has become an essential imaging tool to localize tumors in diagnostic radiology and to monitor the size of a lesion before and during the treatment in oncology. Currently, commercial PET cameras operate only in two extreme modes: (i) no-septa: 3D acquisition mode, also called volumetric imaging and, (ii) all-septa-in: 2D acquisition mode, also called multi-slice imaging. In this study, intermediate septa designs have been sought to minimize the scatter and accidental coincidences with acceptable sensitivity loss. To achieve this goal, Monte Carlo simulations were performed to evaluate possible septa designs. Information about septal penetration, absorption and scattering components from simulations guided us to modify the thickness and total number of septa in the new configurations. With the proposed designs, simulation results have estimated a 27-34% reduction in scatter component and 72-84% in accidentals at 0.2/spl mu/Ci/cc activity density in the brain mode. True sensitivities were reduced to 35-53% compared to no-septa case. Noise equivalent count rates (NEC) were measured and compared for three septa configurations.

  • Relative Dose Distribution In Gamma Knife Treatment Near Tissue Inhomogeneties

    The primary goal in this study was to investigate 3-D dose distribution, near the areas of tissue inhomogeneities, in Gamma Knife radiosurgery with the gel dosimetry. The spherical glass balloon of a diameter of 16 cm filled with the gel forms the homogeneous phantom; and an identical balloon with two corks placed on each side to represent the air cavities forms the inhomogeneous phantom. Dose calibration is performed by irradiating vials at known doses and then utilizing the R2-dose calibration curve. Stereotactic frames and fudicial markers were attached to the phantoms for MR scanning and image processing. Dose distributions from a single shot, using all 201 Cobalt sources, delivered to a known point with identical coordinates, are calculated both in homogeneous and inhomogeneous gel phantoms. In the aspect of dosimetrical quality control, the Gamma Knife planning system predicted dose distribution is compared with the experimental results. In the homogeneous phantom, the gel dosimetry calculated dose distribution is in good agreement with the GammaPlan predicted dose distribution. However, with the inhomogeneous phantom, the dose distribution is spatially different and significant differences in dose levels are observed

  • Establishing the application of personal healthcare service system for cancer patients

    Nowadays, the medical institutions still lack of real demonstration of meaningful use of personal healthcare services for healthcare. In this research, we planned to bring the personal healthcare service into real usage by taking the radiation oncology department as an example. The personal healthcare integration framework is composed of the following systems: A Single sign-on (SSO) portal, an e-learning platform (Moodle) and a radiation oncology information system (ARIATM). In this research, we integrate the patient's health information in the hospital and provide the right-time digital patient instruction service. There are 792 cancer patients registered in our system, and 85% of them agreed that their experience with the system were positive, and almost 4 in 5 said they are confident that they or their families had received proper cancer knowledge they needed during the cancer treatment period.

  • Motion Artifact Reduction in Breast Dynamic Infrared Imaging

    Dynamic infrared imaging is a promising technique in breast oncology. In this paper, a quantum well infrared photodetector infrared camera is used to acquire a sequence of consecutive thermal images of the patientpsilas breast for 10 s. Information on the local blood perfusion is obtained from the spectral analysis of the time series at each image pixel. Due to respiratory and motion artifacts, the direct comparison of the temperature values that a pixel assumes along the sequence becomes difficult. In fact, the small temperature changes due to blood perfusion, of the order of 10-50 mK, which constitute the signal of interest in the time domain, are superimposed onto large temperature fluctuations due to the subjectpsilas motion, which represent noise. To improve the time series _S_/_N_, and as a consequence, enhance the specificity and sensitivity of the dynamic infrared examination, it is important to realign the thermal images of the acquisition sequence, thus reducing motion artifacts. In a previous study, we demonstrated that a registration algorithm based on fiducial points is suitable to both clinical applications and research, when associated with a proper set of skin markers. In this paper, we quantitatively evaluate the performance of different marker sets by means of a model that allows for estimating the _S_/_N_ increment due to registration, and we conclude that a 12-marker set is a good compromise between motion artifact reduction and the time required to prepare the patient.
