Article
If a prostate intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) or volumetric-modulated arc therapy (VMAT) plan has protocol violations, it is often a challenge knowing whether this is due to unfavorable anatomy or suboptimal planning. This study aimed to create a model to predict protocol violations based on patient anatomical variables and their poten...

To describe the feasibility of image guided intensity modulated radiotherapy (IG-IMRT) using daily soft tissue matching in the treatment of bladder cancer. Twenty-eight patients with muscle-invasive carcinoma of the bladder were recruited to a protocol of definitive radiation using IMRT with accelerated hypofractionation with simultaneous integrate...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
A common objective of various adaptive radio-therapy (ART) strategies for bladder cancer is to reduce irradiation of normal tissue, thereby reduce the risk of radiation induced toxicity, and maintain or improve the target coverage. Bladder radiotherapy, typically involves generous margins (up to 20 mm) for bladder planning target volume (PTV). The...
Article
To develop a mathematical tool that can update a patient's planning target volume (PTV) partway through a course of radiation therapy to more precisely target the tumor for the remainder of treatment and reduce dose to surrounding healthy tissue. Daily on-board imaging was used to collect large datasets of displacements for patients undergoing exte...
Article
To compare outcomes of single-fraction and multi-fraction stereotactic ablative body radiotherapy (SABR) for pulmonary metastases. A retrospective review from two academic institutions of patients with one to three pulmonary metastases staged with (18)F-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography/computed tomography (FDG-PET/CT) scans. For sing...
Article
Full-text available
Collected real-life clinical target volume (CTV) displacement data show that some patients undergoing external beam radiotherapy (EBRT) demonstrate significantly more fraction-to-fraction variability in their displacement ('random error') than others. This contrasts with the common assumption made by historical recipes for margin estimation for EBR...

Conference Paper
Aim: To retrospectively analyse radiotherapy variables in definitive prostate IMRT/VMAT planning and determine their relationship to plan quality. Method: One hundred and one definitive dose-escalated prostate patients were treated with IMRT or VMAT between October 2012 and January 2014. Patients received 80 Gy in 40 fractions to 95% of the high d...
