Could hyperthermia with proton therapy mimic carbon ion therapy? Exploring a thermo-radiobiological rationale


Datta, N; Puric, E; Schneider, R; Weber, D C; Rogers, S; Bodis, S (2014). Could hyperthermia with proton therapy mimic carbon ion therapy? Exploring a thermo-radiobiological rationale. International Journal of Hyperthermia, 30(7):524-530.

Abstract

Hyperthermia has been conventionally used in conjunction with photon beam irradiation. With a gradual increase in particle therapy facilities worldwide, this paper explores the physical, thermal and radiobiological implications of using a combination of hyperthermia with proton beam therapy. Hyperthermia is known to exhibit radiobiological features similar to those of high linear energy transfer radiation. Protons have many of the physical dose distribution properties of (12)C ion therapy. Thus, the thermo-radiobiological advantages of hyperthermia coupled with the physical dose distribution advantages of proton beams could possibly mimic (12)C ion therapy.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
