- Detta är en avhandling från Lund University, Faculty of Medicine
Sammanfattning : Locally advanced inextirpable gastrointestinal cancer has poor prognosis and is associated with high morbidity. One treatment option is to use radiotherapy, often combined with chemotherapy (chemoradiation), either as preoperative treatment to facilitate surgery or in the palliative setting to relieve symptoms.

2. Comparative Treatment Planning in Radiotherapy and Clinical Impact of Proton Relative Biological EffectivenessDetta är en avhandling från Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis
Sammanfattning : The development of new irradiation techniques is presently a very active field of research with increased availability of more sophisticated modalities such as intensity modulated photons (IMRT), protons and light ions. The primary aim of this work is to evaluate if the dose-distributions using IMRT and protons contribute to clinical advantages. LÄS MER
3. Comparative treatment planning in external radiotherapy of malignant tumours : Potential gains using protonsDetta är en avhandling från Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis
Sammanfattning : It is well known that protons have physical characteristics superior to conventional radiation qualities in external beam radiotherapy. The primary aim of this work is to determine if the physical advantages also may lead to clinical advantages. LÄS MER
