    A comparative evaluation of two head and neck immobilization devices using verification film for head and neck cancer patients receiving radiation therapy at Ocean Road Cancer Institute (ORCI) aero-digestive tract

    DOI Logo 10.17352/ijrro.000031

    Published On: August 23, 2018 | Pages: 021 - 026

    Author(s): Dukho AJ* and Nazima Dharsee
    Background: Accurate and reproducible patient positioning is fundamental to the success of fractionated radiotherapy. To achieve accurate daily treatment delivery, various immobilization devices are used in radiotherapy departments. At ORCI the mostly used immobilization devices for radiotherapy treatment of head and neck cancer patients are thermoplastic mask and LS- ...

    The Need to Deepen the Abscopal Effect and Synergy among Radiotherapy and Immunotherapy

    DOI Logo 10.17352/ijrro.000030

    Published On: August 22, 2018 | Pages: 019 - 020

    Author(s): Denaro Nerina*
    Emerging data that radiotherapy can potentially convert the patient’s own tumor into an in situ vaccine have raised significant interest for testing radiation in combination with immunotherapy. Moreover, the immune responses to localized irradiation may be the mediator of systemic effects (called the abscopal effect). ...

    Breast conserving surgery and intra-operative specimen radiography: Margin assessment by the surgeon or the radiologist?

    DOI Logo 10.17352/ijrro.000028

    Published On: July 02, 2018 | Pages: 009 - 013

    Author(s): Senthurun Mylvaganam*, Habib Tafazal, Virginia Caddick, Priya Madahar
    In the United Kingdom since the late 1990s there has been both a shortage of and falling level in recruitment of breast radiologists/radiographers. Specimen radiography is a widely used intra-operative adjunct to aid margin assessment in patients undergoing wide local excision for early stage breast cancer. Aim: This study looks to determine accuracy and congruence ...

    Hyperprogression after immunotherapy in HNC: literature review and our experience

    DOI Logo 10.17352/ijrro.000026

    Published On: March 15, 2018 | Pages: 001 - 002

    Author(s): Nerina Denaro
    Checkpoint inhibitors demonstrate salutary anticancer effects, including long-term remissions. PD-L1 expression/amplification, high mutational burden, and mismatch repair deficiency correlate with response. Champiat et al for the first time described a small subset of patients that could actually have tumor growth accelerated when given PD1/PDL1-targeting agents. ...
