  • Using benchmarked lung radiation dose constraints to predict pneumonitis
           risk: developing a nomogram for patients with mediastinal lymphoma

    • Authors: Chelsea C. Pinnix; Jinhai Huo, Sarah A. Milgrom, Zeinab Abou Yehia, Michelle Fanale, Yasuhiro Oki, Bouthaina S. Dabaja, Grace L. Smith
      Abstract: We identified lung dosimetric constraints to assist in predicting radiation pneumonitis (RP) risk in mediastinal lymphoma patients and then identified clinical prognostic factors associated with achievement of key dosimetric constraints.

  • Is completion axillary lymph node dissection necessary in patients
           underrepresented in ACOSOG z0011 trial'

    • Authors: Brian J. Gebhardt; Joel Thomas, Zachary D. Horne, Colin E. Champ, Daniel J. Farrugia, Emilia Diego, Gretchen M. Ahrendt, Sushil Beriwal
      Abstract: ACOSOG Z0011 demonstrated that axillary node dissection (ALND) can be omitted in patients managed with breast conserving surgery and 1-2 positive sentinel lymph nodes (SLNs) without adverse effects on loco-regional recurrence or disease-free survival. We investigated breast cancer patients with clinicopathologic features underrepresented in Z0011 and analyzed RT treatment patterns and clinical outcomes.

  • Adjuvant treatment of meningioma with stereotactic radiosurgery and
           hypofractionated stereotactic radiosurgery: Patterns of care and survival
           in a large, hospital database

    • Authors: Ashley Albert; Anna Lee, Srinivasan Vijayakumar, Madhava Kanakamedala, Robert Allbright, David Schreiber
      Abstract: Stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) and hypofractionated stereotactic radiosurgery (HF-SRS) have recently become an alternative to external beam radiation therapy (EBRT) in the adjuvant treatment of meningiomas. The purpose of this study was to identify national treatment patterns and survival outcomes for meningiomas based on radiation treatment modality in the adjuvant setting.

  • Clinical outcomes and prognostic factors in patients with stage II-III
           breast cancer treated with neoadjuvant chemotherapy followed by surgery
           and postmastectomy radiotherapy in the modern treatment era

    • Authors: Naomi Nakajima; Masahiko Oguchi, Yasuko Kumai, Masahiro Yoshida, Hirotaka Inoda, Takuji Iwase, Yoshinori Ito, Futoshi Akiyama, Shinji Ohno, Teruhito Mochizuki
      Abstract: There are no randomized studies regarding the indication for postmastectomy radiotherapy (PMRT) in patients who receive neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NAC) followed by mastectomy. The aim of this study was to determine clinical outcomes and identify reliable prognostic factors in patients with locally advanced breast cancer treated with NAC followed by mastectomy and PMRT.

  • Initial experience with intensity modulated proton therapy for intact,
           clinically-localized pancreas cancer: clinical implementation, dosimetric
           analysis, acute treatment-related adverse events, and patient-reported
           outcomes

    • Authors: Krishan R. Jethwa; Erik J. Tryggestad, Thomas J. Whitaker, Broc T. Giffey, Bret D. Kazemba, Michelle A. Neben-Wittich, Kenneth W. Merrell, Michael G. Haddock, Christopher L. Hallemeier
      Abstract: Proton therapy for pancreas cancer may improve the therapeutic ratio for delivery of chemoradiation therapy. We performed a matched dosimetric comparison of intensity modulated proton therapy compared with volumetrically modulated arc therapy. Intensity modulated proton therapy allowed for significant reductions in mean and low-intermediate dose to organs at risk, and was associated with low rates of gastrointestinal adverse events and favorable patient reported outcomes of health-related quality of life.

      Abstract: Single-fraction radiosurgery for spine metastases is highly effective. However, a high rate (20-39%) of vertebral body fracture (VBF) has been associated with large, single-fraction doses. We report our experience using multi-fraction stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT).

  • Implementation and utilization of hypofractionation for breast cancer

    • Authors: Philip Gilbo; Louis Potters, Lucille Lee
      Abstract: INTRODUCTIONHypofractionation (HF) of whole breast irradiation has become a standard treatment regimen as randomized trials continue to demonstrate equivalence in survival and local control compared to conventional fractionation (CF). In 2011, ASTRO adopted clinical guidelines on the proper selection of HF. Nevertheless, utilization remains lower than predicted. We evaluate the effects of clinical directives serving as default treatment decisions and prospective contouring rounds on implementation of HF in a large, multicenter radiation oncology department.

      Abstract: The majority of radiation oncology residents report satisfaction with their choice of residency program and an adequate work-life balance. Program dissatisfaction was strongly correlated with lack of resident-feedback use and senior resident status. Almost one-third (29.1%) of seniors regretted their residency program choice. Increased residency-program use of trainee recommendations regarding program improvement and assistance for seniors with the stresses of securing a job may increase satisfaction with training in radiation oncology.

           patients predicts for an increased likelihood of upstaging to pathologic

      Abstract: Physical exam and diagnostic imaging are often less precise in determining the extent of disease in invasive lobular carcinoma (ILC) relative to non-lobular histologies. Anecdotally, surgical axillary evaluation frequently reveals positive lymph nodes in clinically N0 patients with ILC; however, few studies quantify the likelihood of finding unsuspected disease at the time of surgery. Here, in patients with a clinically node-negative axilla and positive SLN biopsy, we evaluate whether the presence of lobular histology increases the incidence of surgical upstaging to pathologic stage IIIA or greater.

  • Reasons of discontinued radiotherapy and effective countermeasures

    • Authors: Toshiya Maebayashi; Naoya Ishibashi, Takuya Aizawa, Masakuni Sakaguchi, Kenya Yamagushi
      Abstract: The proportion of patients receiving radiotherapy in Japan is less than half of those in Europe and the United States (1). The main reason for this is probably due to insufficient man power of radiation oncologists (2). Additionally, we consider the true reason of this might be an insufficient promotion of radiologists in radiotherapy to the clinicians of other fields. Completing a planned radiotherapy is an important factor for achieving a good outcome. However, sometimes radiotherapy is discontinued due to various reasons.

      Abstract: The current standard of care for surgically-eligible stage I non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) is surgical resection, but emerging data suggest that stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT) is potentially as effective as surgery. However, it is unclear how specialists view current evidence about SBRT and how they would incorporate a RCT into practice. We sought to understand specialist opinions about evidence regarding treatment of stage I NSCLC and how this translates into practice and clinical trial implementation.

      Abstract: There is a need to better prepare radiation therapy (RT) providers to safely operate within health information technology (health IT) socio-technical system. Simulation-based training has been preemptively used to yield meaningful improvements during providers' interactions with health IT, including RT settings. Therefore, based on the available literature and our experience we i) propose principles for effective design and use of simulated scenarios and ii) describe a conceptual framework for a debriefing approach to foster successful training focused on safety mindfulness during RT professionals' interactions with health IT.

Consequently robust indications for a rational clinical management are lacking. We report the case of a middle age man in clinical follow-up for a CLL who complained about a Nonsteroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDs) refractory pain at right tibial level and an acute episode of anemia. Instrumental exams and a bioptic sample surprisingly demonstrated a bone tibial localization by CLL.

      Abstract: Precision radiation therapy such as stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT) and limited resection are being used more frequently to treat intrathoracic malignancies. Effective local control requires precise radiation target delineation or complete resection. Lung biopsy tracts (LBT) on CT after using tract sealants can mimic malignant tract seeding (MTS) and it is unclear whether these LBTs should be included in the calculated tumor volume or resected. This study evaluates the incidence, appearance, evolution and malignant seeding of LBTs.

In addition, the available treatments depending on the stage of cancer can vary widely for many reasons. This study investigates the relationship of TTT and treatment choice with socio-demographic factors in prostate cancer patients who underwent external-beam radiation therapy (RT), radical prostatectomy (RP), androgen-deprivation therapy (ADT), or active surveillance (AS) at a safety-net academic medical center.

      Abstract: For high risk prostate cancer (HR-PCa) in men with at least 10 years life expectancy, National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN) recommends radiotherapy (RT) plus androgen deprivation therapy (ADT) with category 1 evidence, or radical prostatectomy (RP) as an acceptable initial therapy. Randomized evidence as to which therapy is optimal for disease control is lacking for men with HR-PCa. We performed a propensity-score matched comparison of outcomes for men with localized HR-PCa treated with primary RT or RP.

      Abstract: Definitive surgical resection is an integral component of curative intent management for localized soft tissue sarcoma (STS), and margin status is a strong predictor for recurrence. Due to the large size and intimate association of retroperitoneal STS with vital normal structures at presentation, microscopically positive margins are common after curative intent interventions [1]. This reality has driven clinical interest in the incorporation of radiation therapy in the intraoperative context, and several series have demonstrated promising rates of local control using Intraoperative Electron Beam Radiation Therapy (IOERT)[2-4].
