Tumor Ablation

There is an enormous sense of excitement in the communities of cancer research and cancer care as we move into the middle third of the ?rst decade of the 21st century. For the ?rst time,there is a true sense of c- ?dence that the tools provided by the human genome project will enable cancer researchers to crack the code of genomic abnormalities that allow tumor cells to live within the body and provide highly speci?c, virtually non-toxic therapies for the eradication,or at least ?rm control of human cancers. There is also good reason to hope that these same lines of inquiry will yield better tests for screening, early detection, and prev- tion of progression beyond curability. While these developments provide a legitimate basis for much op- mism, many patients will continue to develop cancers and suffer from their debilitating effects, even as research moves ahead. For these in- viduals, it is imperative that the cancer ?eld make the best possible use of the tools available to provide present day cancer patients with the best chances for cure, effective palliation, or, at the very least, relief from symptoms caused by acute intercurrent complications of cancer. A modality that has emerged as a very useful approach to at least some of these goals is tumor ablation by the use of physical or physiochemical approaches.

The purpose of this dissertation is to investigate methods for delineating the extent of the thermally coagulated region following thermal ablation therapy of malignant tumors in the liver. In this dissertation, we examine quasistatic elasticity imaging for delineating the extent of the treated region. Next, we characterize scattering in normal, untreated liver and thermally coagulated liver. Finally, we examine attenuation estimation with reference phantom methods in the liver. It has been well established that the Young's modulus of thermally coagulated

The management of liver tumors is a nexus of interactions among multiple medical specialties, including radiation oncology. A multitude of liver-directed therapies are available for patients, ranging from surgery and liver transplantation to intra-arterial therapies, thermal ablation procedures, systemic therapies, and radiation treatments. With the introduction of hypofractionated irradiation, particle therapy, and radioembolization, there is growing interest in the use of radiation as a treatment for liver malignancies. This book examines basic principles of the management of liver tumors. The

The past three decades have been marked with huge enthusiasm from scientists and professionals in an effort to find a cure for glioma disease. Methods to confirm the kinds and grades of glioma have taken a path from classical macro- to microscopic pathohystological confirmation of tumors, through morphological-histological, molecular, and genetic diagnosis. Surgically, progress was made possible with the development and use of technological aids, for example neuronavigation, cortical mapping, electrocorticography, neuromonitoring, functional and intraoperative MRI, magnetoencephalography, etc. Great hope
