ACR Appropriateness Criteria® Ductal Carcinoma in Situ.

Seth A Kaufman, Eleanor E R Harris, Lisa Bailey, Manjeet Chadha, Sharon C Dutton, Gary M Freedman, Sharad Goyal, Michele Y Halyard, Kathleen C Horst, Kristina L M Novick, Catherine C Park, W Warren Suh, Deborah Toppmeyer, Jennifer Zook, Bruce G Haffty,

Ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) is a breast neoplasm with potential for progression to invasive cancer. Management commonly involves excision, radiotherapy, and hormonal therapy. Surgical assessment of regional lymph nodes is rarely indicated except in cases of microinvasion or mastectomy. Radiotherapy is employed for local control in breast conservation, although ...

ACR Appropriateness Criteria®-Anal Cancer.

, Theodore S Hong, Jennifer L Pretz, Joseph M Herman, May Abdel-Wahab, Nilofer Azad, A William Blackstock, Prajnan Das, Karyn A Goodman, Salma K Jabbour, William E Jones, Andre A Konski, Albert C Koong, Miguel Rodriguez-Bigas, William Small, Charles R Thomas, Jennifer Zook, W Warren Suh,

The management of anal cancer is driven by randomized and nonrandomized clinical trials. However, trials may present conflicting conclusions. Furthermore, different clinical situations may not be addressed in certain trials because of eligibility inclusion criteria. Although prospective studies point to the use of definitive 5-fluorouracil and mitomycin C-based chemoradiation as ... Read more >>

Evaluation of superficial dosimetry between treatment planning system and measurement for several breast cancer treatment techniques.

Yuichi Akino, Indra J Das, Gregory K Bartlett, Hualin Zhang, Elizabeth Thompson, Jennifer E Zook,

Dosimetric accuracy in radiation treatment of breast cancer is critical for the evaluation of cosmetic outcomes and survival. It is often considered that treatment planning systems (TPS) may not be able to provide accurate dosimetry in the buildup region. This was investigated in various treatment techniques such as tangential wedges, ... Read more >>

ACR appropriateness criteria®  resectable rectal cancer.

William E Jones, Charles R Thomas, Joseph M Herman, May Abdel-Wahab, Nilofer Azad, William Blackstock, Prajnan Das, Karyn A Goodman, Theodore S Hong, Salma K Jabbour, Andre A Konski, Albert C Koong, Miguel Rodriguez-Bigas, William Small, Jennifer Zook, W Warren Suh,

The management of resectable rectal cancer continues to be guided by clinical trials and advances in technique. Although surgical advances including total mesorectal excision continue to decrease rates of local recurrence, the management of locally advanced disease (T3-T4 or N+) benefits from a multimodality approach including neoadjuvant concomitant chemotherapy and ...

Primary radiation therapy for medically inoperable patients with clinical stage I and II endometrial carcinoma.

Iwona Podzielinski, Marcus E Randall, Patrick J Breheny, Pedro F Escobar, David E Cohn, Allison M Quick, Junzo P Chino, Micael Lopez-Acevedo, Jana L Seitz, Jennifer E Zook, Leigh G Seamon,

OBJECTIVE: To determine the outcomes associated with primary radiation therapy for medically inoperable, clinical stage I and II, endometrial adenocarcinoma (EAC). METHODS: A multi-institution, retrospective chart review from January 1997 to January 2009 was performed. Overall survival (OS), disease-specific survival (DSS), progression-free survival (PFS) and time to progression (TTP) were ... Read more >>

Imaging changes after stereotactic body radiation therapy for lung and liver tumors.

Simon S Lo, Bin S Teh, Jian Z Wang, Zhibin Huang, Jennifer Zook, Tracy Price, Nina A Mayr, John C Grecula, Robert D Timmerman, Higinia R Cardenes,

Stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) is gaining wide acceptance as a treatment modality for lung and liver tumors, and it is crucial to make an accurate evaluation of the local effects of ablative doses of radiation in terms of local tumor control and normal tissue reaction or damage. The very ... Read more >>

ACR Appropriateness Criteria: rectal cancer-metastatic disease at presentation.

Joseph Herman, Wells Messersmith, W Warren Suh, William Blackstock, Bard C Cosman, Mohammed Mohiuddin, Matthew M Poggi, William F Regine, Leonard Saltz, William Small, Jennifer Zook, Andre A Konski,

In 2009, an estimated 40,870 new cases of rectal cancer will be diagnosed in the USA. After decades of treating metastatic colorectal cancer (CRC) with 5-fluorouracil alone, newer agents have resulted in significant improvements in disease-free and overall survival rates. These improvements stem from combinations of newer cytotoxic agents and ... Read more >>

Intra-articular chromic phosphate (³²P) in the treatment of diffuse pigmented villonodular synovitis.

Jennifer E Zook, Daniel L Wurtz, Judd E Cummings, Higinia R Cárdenes,

PURPOSE: Pigmented villonodular synovitis (PVNS) is an uncommon proliferative lesion of synovial tissue. In diffuse PVNS, recurrence rates are high after resection alone. Adjuvant external beam radiation therapy contributes to improved local control. Limited data exist for intra-articular radioisotope therapy after surgical resection. We report institutional experience with intra-articular chromic ... Read more >>

Low anterior resection or abdominoperineal resection is considered standard treatment for early rectal cancer. These procedures, however, carry a risk of morbidity and mortality that may not be warranted for early distal lesions, which may be treated with local excision. Emerging data has investigated the efficacy of local excision in ... Read more >>
