Cancer Treatment Experts Detail Promising New Radiosurgical Techniques for Lung and Liver Cancer Patients
Date:5/12/2011

in Amsterdam, presented data from his hospital's lung cancer program. Clinicians there have treated more than 800 stage 1 lung tumor patients in the last eight years. The Center, which receives referrals from more than 70 Dutch hospitals, treats patients on six Varian linear accelerators, including two TrueBeam devices and a Novalis Tx™ machine.

"We recently published the results of a population based study, demonstrating that the introduction of stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT) in two Dutch provinces resulted in a sixteen percent increase in the use of radiotherapy with patients above 75 years of age, and that this resulted in improved survival,"(1) says Prof. Slotman.

Since 2008, all lung SBRT treatments at VU have been delivered using Varian's RapidArc technology, many on the TrueBeam system. According to Prof. Slotman, the main benefit of RapidArc for lung patients is the shorter treatment time with less risk of motion than with earlier generations of technology. "This is especially important for SBRT, where high doses are delivered over fewer treatment sessions," he says. "The delivery of the highest dose for lung tumors was reduced from 30 minutes to just six minutes. With the introduction of TrueBeam technology, the integration between imaging and treatment delivery has been improved.  By using the High Intensity Mode in the very near future, we expect to reduce the treatment time to less than three minutes."

Professor Cai Grau, head of radiotherapy research at the Department of Oncology, Aarhus University Hospital in Denmark, outlined his center's work in dynamic adaptive radiotherapy techniques for head and neck cancer treatments.

Speed is a critical issue when using images to adapt a treatment over a multi-week course of radiotherapy. "Re-optimizing the treatment plan based on daily 3-D images of the patient's anatomy allows us to reduce risks associated with anatomical changes such as tumor shrinkage over a c
