The above thesis by Sunil Dutt Sharma deals with the dosimetric aspects of beam therapy systems and brachytherapy sources of recent technology used for the treatment of cancer. It provides comprehensive dosimetric comparisons of different radiotherapy systems and sources and precise dosimetric methods and data for modern radiotherapy systems and sources which are of immense importance during.
Radiotherapy hypo fractioned in the treatment of neck and head cancer Chemo boost and conventional radiotherapy: marking the new trends in cancer prevention of the head and neck External beam radiotherapy: an assessment into the efficacy of the procedure Intraluminal brachytherapy: the following up of external beam therapy into in dysphagia palliation Head and neck carcinoma: the benefits of.The genetic contribution to bladder cancer risk remains undetermined, while the role of radiotherapy versus surgery in muscle-invasive bladder cancer (MIBC) treatment is hotly debated with the need for predictive biomarkers of treatment response. DNA repair pathways are involved in repairing DNA damage from carcinogens thus preventing carcinogenesis, but also form one of the 5 R’s of.The department of Medical Radiation Physics is engaged in research and education in ionizing and non-ionizing radiation, and its use mainly in medical applications. The major areas are radiation therapy, X-ray diagnostics, nuclear medicine including both diagnostics and therapy, as well as magnetic resonance imaging. Dosimetry and health aspects are of central importance in.

The main subject matter of this thesis concerns radiotherapy patient scheduling subproblems formulated as four separate shop scheduling problem models (i.e. hybrid flowshop, flowshop, mixed shop and multiple.Read More
PhD thesis, I demonstrate that atlas-based methods can be used for segmenting head and neck structures giving results as comparable as manual segmentation. In addition, I demonstrate that those methods can be used to support radiotherapy treatment solely based on MR imaging by generating synthetic CT images. The radiation doses calculated from.Read More
This thesis investigates and develops a number improvements to a category of radiation therapy called stereotactic radiotherapy, most notably for spinal tumours. By careful consideration of planning parameters, treatment delivery accuracy can be improved and skin toxicity reduced for patients receiving this treatment. Improvements to patient safety and departmental efficiency with stereotactic.Read More
Alumni Dr Katie Spencer. Katie is a Clinical Oncologist who completed her MRC funded PhD in 2019, investigating the cost-effectiveness of the palliative radiotherapy treatments delivered within the English NHS radiotherapy with the Academic Unit of Health Economics, University of Leeds, co-supervised from Edinburgh Health Economics. Katie is interested in the value of treatments delivered.Read More

Radiotherapy represents an important phase of treatment for a large number of cancer patients. It is essential that resources used to deliver this treatment are used efficiently. This thesis approaches the problem of scheduling treatments in a radiotherapy centre. Data about the daily intake of patients are collected and analysed. Several approaches are presented to create a schedule every day.Read More
The main goal of this thesis was to investigate the benefit of using novel radiotherapy techniques, such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)-guided photon therapy and intensity-modulated proton therapy (IMPT), to treat this patient category. In light of the work shown throughout the thesis, the main conclusions are: (1) Average motion and patient set-up uncertainties during radiotherapy.Read More
