This information is put into the model to predict whether a particular case is well responding to treatment. If not, the patient may adopt an aggressive or experimental therapy at the center of the treatment, which will now not be changed. – The study , published in the journal Cancer Research uses MRI scans and outcome information from 80 cervical cancer patients who standard course standard course of radiation therapy their their cancer. ‘The model enables us to better interpret clinical data and predict treatment outcomes for individual patients,’says study leader Jian Z. Assistant professor of radiation medicine and a radiation physicist at the OSUCCC – James. ‘Earnings predictions in this paper were presented solely to changes in the tumor volume from MRI scans , which are easily accessible, is also based in community hospitals,’Wang says.
Is the model for all cervical cancer patients, and the investigators are developing a model cancers applied to other cancers, Wang said.Co-author Dr. Professor of radiation medicine at Ohio State University, notes that the size of the cervical tumors by by touch, or palpation, which is often imprecise. Furthermore, shrinkage of a tumor months after therapy completed until months after therapy obviously. (more…)
