  • physicians
  • Using this more powerful radiation beam, physicians were now able to treat and cure many types of cancers deep in the body. (cityofhope.org)
  • For the first time physicians could see the patient's cancer and internal anatomy in three-dimensional space, allowing for more precise targeting and shaping of the radiation dose to further increase cure rates and reduce side effects. (cityofhope.org)
  • malignancies
  • The Weinman Family Department of Radiation Oncology at Sinai Hospital uses cutting-edge technology for procedures related to the treatment of benign and malignant diseases, including customized external beam irradiation with pinpoint precision for malignancies in pediatric and adult patients. (lifebridgehealth.org)
  • Al-Halabi H, Paetzold P, Sharp G, Olsen C, Willers H. A Contralateral Esophagus-Sparing Technique to Limit Severe Esophagitis Associated With Concurrent High-Dose Radiation and Chemotherapy in Patients With Thoracic Malignancies. (massgeneral.org)
  • Dr. Nakamura is a recognized expert in radiation-induced malignancies and an investigator in an innovative Specialized Programs of Research Excellence (SPORE) program of the National Cancer Institute (NCI) known as the Developmental and HyperActive Ras Tumor (DHART) SPORE. (ucsf.edu)
  • tumor
  • An important aspect of the trial is that samples of the tumor are obtained to study the biological basis of how lapatinib makes breast cancer more sensitive to radiation. (unc.edu)
  • An important aspect of this trial is that samples of the tumor are obtained before and after irradiation to study how radiation affects breast cancer at the molecular level. (unc.edu)
  • Dr. Roth and Jill Caranto, RT (R)(T), CMD agreed that the current home to Radiation Oncology, the Lurleen B. Wallace Tumor Institute, was born out of Lurleen Wallace's bout with cancer. (uab.edu)
  • We designed it (The Lurleen B. Wallace Tumor Institute) originally to house Radiation Oncology in the Basement and on the First Floor, with Medical Oncology up above," recalls Dr. Brascho, a former department physician. (uab.edu)
  • A multi-department team of UAB brain tumor researchers has received a grant to take a systems-biology approach to treatment. (uab.edu)
  • We are discovering ways to deliver higher doses of radiation to a tumor, while reducing effects to surrounding healthy tissue. (dana-farber.org)
  • This includes Tomotherapy and TrueBeam, which allow one machine to do the work previously done by several: imaging of the tumor, mapping its exact shape and "sculpting" a radiation beam to the tumor. (cityofhope.org)
  • dose
  • It is a Phase I study for patients with locally recurrent breast cancer (prior radiation allowed) that tests the dose of lapatinib that is tolerated with radiation. (unc.edu)
  • and a phase I/II open-label dose escalation study of anti-CTLA4 antibody with radiation for metastatic hormone refractory prostate cancer. (ucsf.edu)
  • biomarkers
  • Develop a precision radiation medicine screening platform for testing of novel radiosensitizing drugs in genomically characterized cancer cell lines and identification of genomic biomarkers. (massgeneral.org)
  • Medicine
  • UAB Medicine - The Cancer Center at RMC will expand oncology services in the Lake Martin, Ala., area. (uab.edu)
  • The latest frontier in cancer medicine is embodied in the Elsie and Robert Pierson Radiation Oncology Center at City of Hope's main campus in Duarte. (cityofhope.org)
