Radiation Oncology

Hypofractionated radiation therapy results in less toxicity and provides a better quality of life compared with conventional whole-breast irradiation, according to two recent studies.

The use of CT-guided radiofrequency ablation is well tolerated and effective among patients with inoperable stage IA non-small-cell lung cancer.

Use of post-operative radiotherapy was associated with better overall survival in patients with incompletely resected stage II/III non-small-cell lung cancer.

Men with prostate cancer assigned to intermittent ADT experienced more ischemic and thrombotic events than did men assigned to continuous ADT.

In a recently published study, patients who did not respond to initial radiation or re-irradiation of symptomatic bone metastases had significantly higher urinary markers of bone turnover at baseline and follow-up.

Researchers were able to demonstrate response to radiotherapy in breast cancer patients with osteolytic metastases by measuring increases in bone density.

A recent study found that radiation therapy was effective for the palliation of painful spinal metastases in patients with hepatocellular carcinoma.
