  • More particularly, the invention relates to an integrated system that makes use of different modalities in a complementary fashion to permit feedback to surgeons and other medical professionals of physical conditions of a subject, particularly during interventionary procedures. (google.com)
  • Radiation oncology only minimally takes the genetic makeup of tumors into account, and little attention has been given to the fact that the different modalities of ionizing radiation, such as photon and proton irradiation, may also induce differential damages and biological processes, which might again be influenced by the genetic makeup and mutational status of the tumor.

  • Whole lung lavage (WLL) is the treatment of choice in symptomatic PAP, but transient worsening of oxygenation sometimes requires salvage modalities of support such as extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO). (biomedcentral.com)
  • In view of the complexity of biological responses to cancer therapy, this communication reports on a "top-down" strategy, starting with the systematic assessment of adverse effects within a defined therapeutic context and proceeding to transcriptomic and proteomic analysis of relevant patient tissue samples and computational exploration of the resulting data, with the ultimate aim of utilizing information from functional connectivity networks in evaluation of patient safety in multimodal cancer therapy.

  • The prognosis of patients with malignant pleural mesothelioma remains poor and although it is clear that multimodal therapy is necessary to improve long-term results, precise treatment schemes have not yet been unequivocally established. (ersjournals.com)
