This CT image would be very useful in performing tumor ablative procedures (such as brachytherapy) for the treatment of lung cancer. This is because during such procedures the target lung is almost completely deflated whereas pre-operative images are ...

Final beam energies of 9 to 15 MeV with currents up to 30 mA have been achieved by passing the beam six times through the cavities and beam energies of 4.5 to 7.5 MeV with currents up to 60 mA have been obtained after three traversals of the cavities. An improved injection system and magnetic guide field design are described, and the suitability of this type of machine for radiation therapy is considered.

  • CT image construction of the lung in a totally deflated mode

    A novel technique is proposed to construct CT images of the lung in a totally deflated mode using non-rigid registration and extrapolation. This CT image would be very useful in performing tumor ablative procedures (such as brachytherapy) for the treatment of lung cancer. This is because during such procedures the target lung is almost completely deflated whereas pre-operative images are acquired while the lung is partially inflated. This makes pre- operative images very inaccurate. Given that Ultrasound (US) imaging is very sensitive to residual air in a deflated lung, it is not an effective intra- operative imaging modality by itself. One possible approach for image guided lung brachytherapy is registering low quality intra-operative ultrasound images to high quality lung CT image of the deflated lung constructed using the proposed technique. The technique was applied to an ex-vivo porcine lung and the preliminary results were found to be very encouraging.

  • Incorporating geometric uncertainties into dose calculations with convolution: the effect of spatial invariance

    Convolution methods have been incorporated into dose calculations to model the effect of geometric uncertainties on the dose received. These methods assume spatial invariance of the dose distribution, although it is known that this is violated in practice. The magnitudes of the resulting errors are not well documented. The authors specifically address the issue of spatial invariance due to tissue inhomogeneities and surface contours. They accomplished this by comparing two approaches. First, the uncertainty in beam positioning was modeled with a Gaussian distribution. A static dose distribution (with surface and inhomogeneity corrections) was calculated and was convolved with the Gaussian to yield a "blurred" dose distribution incorporating the uncertainties. Second, the dose was calculated using a finite number of spatially displaced individual beams (each calculated with surface and inhomogeneity corrections) weighted by the same Gaussian for their displacement from the static beam position. The difference between the results of the two methods indicates the error in the convolution method. This analysis was performed for four phantoms with various surface curvature and internal inhomogeneities. Significant differences are observed due to the effect of surface curvature, while the errors due to internal inhomogeneities appear to be minor. It is concluded that for convolution algorithms to be of clinical use, the inaccuracy due to the effect of surface curvature needs to be addressed.

  • Electrical stimulation increases schwann cells proliferation inside hyaluronic acid conduits

    After nerve injury in the peripheral nervous system (PNS), application of an appropriate electrical stimulation (ES) may increase the rate and success of nerve repair. Tubular structures to mimic nervous tracts have been conducted with promising results. Schwann cells (SCs) are the main supportive cells of neurons in the PNS. In this work, we used hyaluronic acid (HA) tubular scaffolds with SCs and applied two different current intensities (450 μA and 900 μA) in order to study their effects on cells behaviour. Our data showed a beneficial effect of ES on cell number when applying a current of 450 μA. The application of tissue engineering and ES may accelerate and increase functional recovery in the PNS.

  • Geant4 simulations for microbeam radiation therapy (MRT) dosimetry

    Radiation therapy is one of the techniques most commonly used in the treatment of various types of tumors. The microbeam radiation therapy (MRT) is a very promising variant, which exploits the property that tissues can tolerate high doses of radiation in small volumes. The effectiveness of MRT is well represented by the peak-to-valley dose ratios (PVDRs), which are one of the crucial parameters associated with the outcome of the treatment. In this study, we investigate on the factors that influence PVDRs, such as different beam energies and geometries. MRT experiments typically employ rectangular (planar) microbeams of different sizes, but, for convenience of analysis, preliminary computations have been performed also using arrays of cylindrical microbeams. This work shows that the shape of the impinging irradiation field largely influences the dose distribution. It highlights that a bundle of larger microbeams, with a small separation, produces more scattered radiation and therefore lower PVDRs. The study of how dose distributions vary with different setups and irradiation parameters is an essential step in enhancing the comparability of experimental data and simulation results.

  • Return-to-the-origin probability imaging as indicator of local necrosis

    The object of this work is to develop a noninvasive method for detecting local tissue necrosis in RIF-1 murine tumors. The method is based on structural differences between necrotic and viable tissue. By probing the displacement of water molecules in a time, t, it is possible to gather information on the tissue structure. This can be exploited to detect local tissue necrosis in tumors. The return-to-the-origin probability derived from porous media theory is employed to detect local necrosis in tumor.

  • A new optimization of dose distribution for intracavitary radiation therapy by simulated annealing

    An optimization method for dose distribution in a remote afterloading system (RALS) using simulated annealing has been proposed. In intracavitary radiotherapy it is necessary to irradiate tumor volumes with a higher dose than the lethal dose of the tumor cell. At the same time, it is necessary to reduce the absorbed dose of critical organs as much as possible. However, the tumors and the critical organs are close to each other in a patient body; hence, it is difficult to realize the optimum dose plan. The proposed method yields the solution to this problem. The irradiation time of each source is optimized by minimizing the difference between a prescribed dose distribution and the calculated dose distribution. Simulation results showed that the method worked fairly well in obtaining the optimum dose distribution.<<ETX>>

  • Shielding and activation study for proton medical accelerators

    A preliminary study has reviewed much of the pertinent data on the required radiation shielding and radioactivation processes associated with the operation of a 70-250 MeV proton accelerator to be used for cancer therapy. As a result, a "tool kit" has been prepared for designing appropriate shielding and evaluating radiation hazards from activation around such accelerators, It includes general principles, a simple desktop computer program for preliminary facility design and the use of the LCS Monte Carlo program. The anticipated integration of the ORIHET program with LCS will provide detailed activation information.<<ETX>>

  • Regional Normal Liver Tissue Density Changes in Patients Treated with Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy for Liver Metastases

    A quantitative approach to evaluate stereo tactic body radiation therapy (SBRT)-induced normal liver tissue changes in patients with liver metastases was performed. 104 non-contrast treatment follow-up computed topography (CT) scans of 35 patients who received SBRT between 2004 and 2011 were retrospectively analyzed (range, 0.7-36 months, median, 8.1 months). The dose distributions from planning CTs were mapped to follow-up CTs using rigid registration. SBRT-induced normal liver density changes on post-SBRT follow-up CT scans were evaluated at approximately 4, 8, 12, 18, and 36 months. Dose- response curves (DRCs) were generated over the entire patient population by computing the mean Hounsfield unit (HU) in liver regions corresponding to dose bins ranging from 0-55 Gy in 5 Gy intervals. A hypo dense radio logic change in irradiated liver linearly related to dose (slope, -0.13 ΔHU/Gy) was observed, with significant mean CT changes of -9.3 ± 0.64 ΔHU and -9.8 ± 0.75 ΔHU at 45-50 Gy and 50-55 Gy, respectively. Furthermore, the data revealed that SBRT induces this hypo dense radiation reaction with demarcation set by the 30 to 35 Gy iso dose volume.
