  1. 1. Chemoradiation in Gastrointestinal Cancer

    Detta är en avhandling från Lund University, Faculty of Medicine

    Författare :Adalsteinn Gunnlaugsson; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2010]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Biliary tract cancer; capecitabine; cholangiocarcinoma; chemoradiation; colon cancer; enteritis 5-fluorouracil; gallbladder cancer; oxaliplatin; pancreatic cancer; rectal cancer.;

    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. 2. Comparative Treatment Planning in Radiotherapy and Clinical Impact of Proton Relative Biological Effectiveness

    Detta är en avhandling från Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Författare :Jonas Johansson; Uppsala universitet.; [2006]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Oncology; Radiotherapy; Comparative studies; Breast cancer; hypopharyngeal cancer; rectal cancer; Proton RBE; Onkologi; MEDICINE Surgery Oncology; MEDICIN Kirurgi Onkologi;

    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. 3. Comparative treatment planning in external radiotherapy of malignant tumours : Potential gains using protons

    Detta är en avhandling från Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Oncology; Breast cancer; comparative treatment; Ewing sarcoma; oesophageal cancer; protontherapy; radiotherapy; rectal cancer; treatment planning algorithms; Onkologi; MEDICINE Surgery Oncology; MEDICIN Kirurgi Onkologi; Oncology; onkologi;

    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

  4. 4. Locally advanced rectal cancer : Aspects on management, outcome and quality of life

    Detta är en avhandling från Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Molecular Medicine and Surgery

    Författare :Gabriella Jansson Palmer; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2009]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Locally recurrent rectal cancer; locally advanced primary rectal cancer; survival; radiological staging; MDT;

    Sammanfattning : Rectal cancer is common in Sweden, with about 1650 patients diagnosed annually. In 10 15% of the patients the tumour is locally advanced at diagnosis, i.e. the cancer is growing outside the mesorectal fascia, into adjacent organs in the pelvis. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Aspects on local recurrence of rectal cancer

    Detta är en avhandling från Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Clinical Sciences

    Författare :Erik Syk; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2009]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Sammanfattning : Rectal cancer is a common malignant disease in Sweden which is diagnosed in about 1,800 patients annually. Local failure, defined as residual or recurrent disease within the pelvis, is of major concern in rectal cancer treatment. LÄS MER
