Infraorbitary artery epistaxis

June 1, 2022 ENT Disorders | Radiology & Cancer Therapy No Comments

Epistaxis is a common complication of endoscopic sinus surgery. Bleeding occurs morefrequently due to injury of the sphenopalatine artery branches. Pathologies of the maxillarysinus that produce bone resorption and descent from the orbital floor into the sinus, exposethe orbital fat and the infraorbital artery (IOA) …..

Edema management with compression therapy during volumetric modulated arc therapy for extensive skin field cancerisation – a case study

March 17, 2022 Radiology & Cancer Therapy No Comments

Non-melanoma skin cancer is the most frequently diagnosed cancer in Australia. Recentadvances in radiation therapy (RT) allow large convex areas with extensive skin fieldcancerisation (ESFC) to be treated using volumetric modulated arc therapy (VMAT). RTdoses and volumes are planned by radiation oncologists from pre-treatment computedtomography …..

Isolated posterior malleolus fracture – magnetic resonance imaging diagnosis

January 14, 2022 Radiology & Cancer Therapy No Comments

Approximately 7% to 44% of ankle fractures involve the posterior tibial margin. Thesefractures tend to have a poorer prognosis than fractures without posterior involvement.Recognition of posterior malleolar fracture patterns is more important than fracturefragment size in decision making. Standard ankle radiographs are not effective fordiagnosing …..

Determination of differences in dosimetry with and without intravenous contrast media for radiotherapy planning in the anatomical region of the head and neck

November 22, 2021 Radiology & Cancer Therapy No Comments

In radiotherapy (RT), to determine the tumor volume (TV) and its morphology, computed tomography (CT) is used, acquiring images without and with intravenous iodinated contrast media (CM), where its influence has been poorly studied usually in artificial phantoms. Computerized dosimetries without and with CM from …..

Superior outcomes of Volumetric Modulated Arc Therapy (VMAT) in the palliation of skull metastases of multiple myeloma: a case report

October 11, 2021 Radiology & Cancer Therapy No Comments

Palliative radiotherapy (RT) is often given to symptomatic sites of multiple myeloma (MM). Three-dimensional conformal radiotherapy (3DCRT) is often the main modality due its efficiency but it may involve irradiation volumes which include organs at risk (OARs). A case of end-stage MM with innumerable skull …..
