Image Guided Prostate Cancer Treatments Book Excerpt:

Image-Guided Prostate Cancer Treatments is a comprehensive reference and practical guide on the technology and application of ultrasound and MRI in the male pelvis, with special attention to the prostate. The book is organized into three main sections, the first of which is devoted to general aspects of imaging and image-guided treatments. The second section provides a systematic overview of the application of ultrasound and MRI to the diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the lower urinary tract. Performance of the ultrasound and MRI studies is explained, and the normal and abnormal pathological anatomy is reviewed. Correlation with the ultrasound in the same plane is provided to assist in understanding the MRI sequences. Biopsy and interventional procedures, ultrasound-MRI fusion techniques, and image-guided therapies, including focused ultrasound, photodynamic therapy, microwave and laser ablation, are all fully covered. The third section focuses on securing treatment effectiveness and the use of follow-up imaging to ensure therapeutic success and detect tumor recurrence at an early stage, which is vital given that prompt focal treatment of recurrence is very successful. Here, particular attention is paid to the role of Doppler ultrasound and DCE-MRI technologies. This book, containing a wealth of high-quality illustrations based on high-end equipment, will acquaint beginners with the basics of prostate ultrasound and MRI, while more advanced practitioners will learn new skills, means of avoiding pitfalls, and ways of effectively relating the imaging and image-guided treatments to the clinical situation. The information provided will permit a tailored approach in dealing with specific pathologic issues.

Cone Beam Computed Tomography for Image Guided Radiation Therapy of Prostate Cancer Book Excerpt:

The success of modern radiation therapy such as intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) or conformal radiation therapy (CRT) is heavily reliant on accurate image guidance in prostate cancer treatment. Cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) is becoming one of the dominant imaging modalities for image-guidance partly because of its rich image information and its ease of use. However, current technology based on the Feldkamp-Davis-Kress (FDK) algorithm for image reconstruction from a circular scanning trajectory does have more room to improve in terms of image quality and accuracy. In addition, the imaging radiation dose is one of the key issues. This is of paramount importance especially in repeated scans during the treatment process to adapt treatment plans to changes in prostate over time. The overall objective of this project is to investigate and develop innovative CBCT scanning methods and corresponding image reconstruction algorithms that can increase the accuracy of the images of the patient's prostate and/or reduce patient dose from CBCT. Reverse helical CBCT has been proposed, and image reconstruction algorithms for the reverse helical scan have been developed and investigated. Region-of-interest imaging methods based on the chord-based reconstruction algorithm have been explored and applied to CBCT. A few-view CBCT approach based on iterative reconstruction algorithms has also been studied.

Prostate Cancer Demystified Book Excerpt:

This is a story of relationships. I have not told it to make anyone feel sorry for me and it certainly was not my intention to elicit tears or sadness. It is a story of mother and daughter, and how family members can support each other as they confront the worst blow ever dealt to them. It is a story also, I hope, of communication. The renowned Dr. Elizabeth Kubler-Ross, whose life study concerned the dying, believed and often said that the dying have unfinished business and cannot properly prepare to leave this world until it is done. As we try to help those who are terminally ill, we find that they may have, conversely, helped us. Thus, this is a story of incredible bravery and strength. If you are going through this now, or watching someone you love go through it, I hope you will find something in here to make those last days more meaningful.

Stereotactic Radiosurgery for Prostate Cancer Book Excerpt:

This book offers a comprehensive evaluation of the use of stereotactic body radiosurgery (SBRT) for the treatment of prostate cancer. The rationale, selection criteria, and treatment planning for prostate SBRT are explained. Important imaging and anatomic considerations are discussed, and detailed consideration devoted to organ motion and tumor tracking during SBRT. Outcomes of therapy are then examined, with thorough appraisal of side effect profiles and quality of life impacts. Clear guidance is provided on how to deliver the therapy in a way that minimizes the risk of long-term urinary and rectal toxicities. Stereotactic radiosurgery for prostate cancer is an increasingly used form of treatment. Retrospective investigations have demonstrated the safe application of high-dose treatments, with 5-year results comparable to those achieved with protracted external beam radiotherapy. Prospective studies are underway comparing SBRT with more traditional forms of image-guided and intensity-modulated radiotherapy. In offering in-depth guidance on safe delivery of prostate SBRT, this book will be of value for students of radiation oncology, more experienced practitioners, and medical physicists.

Image Guided Radiotherapy for Effective Radiotherapy Delivery Book Excerpt:

Image-guided radiotherapy (IGRT) is a new radiotherapy technology that combines the rapid dose fall off associated with intensity-modulated radiotherapy (IMRT) and daily tumor imaging allowing for high precision tumor dose delivery and effective sparing of surrounding normal organs. The new radiation technology requires close collaboration between radiologists, nuclear medicine specialists, and radiation oncologists to avoid marginal miss. Modern diagnostic imaging such as positron emission tomography (PET) scans, positron emission tomography with Computed Tomograpgy (PET-CT), and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) allows the radiation oncologist to target the positive tumor with high accuracy. As the tumor is well visualized during radiation treatment, the margins required to avoid geographic miss can be safely reduced , thus sparing the normal organs from excessive radiation. When the tumor is located close to critical radiosensitive structures such as the spinal cord, IGRT can deliver a high dose of radiation to the tumor and simultaneously decreasing treatment toxicity, thus potentially improving cure rates and patient quality of life. During radiotherapy, tumor shrinkage and changes of normal tissues/volumes can be detected daily with IGRT. The volume changes in the target volumes and organs at risk often lead to increased radiation dose to the normal tissues and if left uncorrected may result in late complications. Adaptive radiotherapy with re-planning during the course of radiotherapy is therefore another advantage of IGRT over the conventional radiotherapy techniques. This new technology of radiotherapy delivery provides the radiation oncologist an effective tool to improve patient quality of life. In the future, radiation dose-escalation to the residual tumor may potentially improve survival rates. Because the treatment complexity, a great deal of work is required from the dosimetry staff and physicists to ensure quality of care. Preliminary clinical results with IGRT are encouraging but more prospective studies should be performed in the future to assess the effectiveness of IGRT in improving patient quality of life and local control. In this Frontiers Research Topic, we encourage submission of original papers and reviews dealing with imaging for radiotherapy planning, the physics and dosimetry associated with IGRT, as well as the clinical outcomes for cancer treatment with IGRT for all tumor sites.

Controversies and Perspectives in the Use of Postoperative Radiotherapy for Prostate Cancer Book Excerpt:

The use of radical prostatectomy in patients with high risk of recurrence has significantly increased during the past 10 years. Thus, adjuvant radiation as a part of multimodality treatment or salvage radiation at the evidence of prostate-specific antigen (PSA) progression represents mainstay curative-intent options for a great number of prostate cancer patients. Although, few randomized trials and many retrospective studies have been published, many uncertainties still mold the discussions on the best treatment management for men after prostatectomy. This research topic successfully intended to foster discussions on current controversies in the use of postoperative radiotherapy and to present novel perspectives for treatment optimization.
