Prognostic Value of Metabolic Response Measured by FDG-PET-CT in Patients with Breast Cancer Liver Metastasis Treated with Stereotactic Body Radiotherapy
OBJECTIVE To investigate the impact of metabolic response measured by 18-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography and computed tomography (FDG-PET-CT) in patients with breast cancer liver metastasis (BCLM) treated ...
The Comparision of Breast Cancer in the Young and Elderly Patients
OBJECTIVE To compare the tumor characteristics, treatment approaches, recurrence patterns and survival results rates of young and elderly patients with breast cancer. METHODS In this study, Between between 2000-2013, ...
Radiotherapy After Skin-Sparing Mastectomy and Implant-Based Breast Reconstruction
We aimed to evaluate the cosmetic results of radiotherapy in 170 breast cancer patients after implant-based reconstruction. Cosmetic results were excellent or fair in most patients after radiotherapy. However, bolus use, ...
Dosimetric Comparison of Sequential Versus Simultaneous-integrated Boost in Early-stage Breast Cancer Patients Treated With Breast-conserving Surgery
Background/Aim: To compare simultaneous-integrated boost (SIB) versus sequential-boost (SB) delivered in the context of whole-breast irradiation (WBI) via volumetric-modulated arc therapy (VMAT) and helical-tomotherapy ...
The use of 18F-FDG positron emission tomography to detect mediastinal lymph nodes in metastatic breast cancer
Background: To assess the predictive value of F-18-fluorodeoxyglucose positron-emission tomography (FDG-PET/CT) in detecting mediastinal lymph node metastasis with histopathologic verification in breast cancer (BC) ...
Effects of Setup Errors on Dose Distribution for Tangential Wedge Field and Field-in-Field Techniques During Breast Irradiation
This study is aimed to evaluate the effects of setup errors on dose distribution for target volume and healthy tissue within the irradiated volume and also critical surrounding organs for breast radiotherapy (RT) using ...
