Red Journal Biology x Stereotactic body radiation therapy SBRT or stereotactic ablative radiotherapy SABR is an effective treatment for medically inoperable early stage NSCLC The authors quantitatively evaluated published experience with thoracic SBRT for early NSCLC and modeled local control rates as a UpToDate REFERENCES Chan A, Cardinale R, Loeffler J Stereotactic irradiation In Perez CA, Brady LW, Halperin CA, Schmidt Ullrich RK, Principles and practice of radiation UpToDate INTRODUCTION Cranial irradiation is used to treat patients with primary or metastatic brain tumors and as prophylaxis for selected patients at high risk of neoplastic involvement of the nervous system. Stereotactic Radiosurgery for Treatment of Brain Sep , Brain metastases are the most common intracranial malignancy Incidence of brain metastases has risen as systemic therapies have improved and patients with metastatic disease live longer Whole brain radiation therapy, for many years, has been the standard treatment approach Stereotactic radiosurgery has become an increasingly popular option because of its relatively short, Cathepsin G Wikipedia Cathepsin G is a protein that in humans is encoded by the CTSG gene.It is one of the three serine proteases of the chymotrypsin family that are stored in the azurophil granules, and also a member of the peptidase S protein family.Cathepsin G plays an important role in eliminating intracellular pathogens and breaking down tissues at inflammatory sites, as well as in anti inflammatory response. Protocol Table rtog NOTE NRG Oncology studies have been moved to the NRG Oncology website protocol table.Only terminated studies remain on this list. Stereotactic Radiosurgery Medical Clinical Policy Number Policy Aetna considers stereotactic radiosurgery medically necessary according to the following selection criteria Cranial stereotactic radiosurgery with a Cyberknife, gamma knife, or linear accelerator LINAC is considered medically necessary when used for any of the following indications For treatment of members with symptomatic, small less than cm arterio venous AV Brain metastasis Wikipedia A brain metastasis is a cancer that has metastasized spread to the brain from another location in the body and is therefore considered a secondary brain tumor The metastasis typically shares a cancer cell type with the original site of the cancer Metastasis is the most common cause of brain cancer, with primary tumors that originate in the brain being less common. Cognitive impairment and morphological changes after Introduction Cognitive impairment has been observed following brain radiotherapy and can significantly alter the quality of long term survivors life .Cognitive dysfunction, which can be assessed using various specific tests, seems related to many factors like disease progression but also to radiotherapy itself ,.Several radiation parameters, such as total dose, dose per fraction Radiation induced neuropathy in cancer survivors Fig Radiation induced brachial plexopathy RIBP a a year old woman with left breast cancer years ago was treated by breast RT field black dotted line and axillary supraclavicular RT field black full line irradiation followed by mastectomy she developed arm lymphoedema, supraclavicular fibrosis and RIBP plexus along the white dotted line showing progressive sensory and...
