  12. 12. Radiation in Medicine – Discovery • Radiation (x-rays) discovered by Wilhelm Roentgen (1895) while Henri Becquerel concurrently discovered radioactivity (uranium) • Following, Marie Curie pioneered research in radioactivity with radium and polonium • Potential to medicine quickly realized (Figure 1) • Within a month, radiographs were under production • Within 6 months, they were used in battle to locate bullets in soldiers • Dangers of radiation also quick to surface: Figure 1: The first x-ray of Bertha Roentgen’s hand. “If one leaves a small glass ampulla with several centigrams of radium salt in ones pocket for a few hours, one will feel absolutely nothing. But in 15 days afterwards redness will appear on the epidermis, and then a sore, which will be very difficult to heal. A more prolonged action could lead to paralysis and death.” – Pierre Curie, Nobel lecture 1903 E. Williams (MSKCC) Higgs → Hospital January 17, 2014 3 / 29

  15. 15. Radiation in Medicine – Modern Use • Diagnostic tools: • X-ray images → computed tomography (CT ) • Positron Emission Tomography (PET ) • Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI ) • Therapeutic tools: Eleckta Linear Accelerator • Brachytherapy : radioactive sources place near disease • Nuclear medicine: Radioactive material injected or injested by patient • External beam radiotherapy: intense radiation from external source is focused on the cancerous tissue → Nearly 2/3 of all cancer patients will receive radiation therapy ← during the course of their treatment.1 E.

  19. 19. NTCP Modeling: Purpose A key challenge in radiotherapy is maximizing radiation doses to cancer cells while minimizing damage to surrounding healthy (normal) tissue Successful tumor control depends principally on the total dose delivered, but tolerances of surrounding normal tissues limit this dose.3 Goal: To model Normal Tissue Complication Probability (NTCP), based on clinical and dosimetric predictors, to reduce future toxicities and allow higher doses to the target for greater tumor control.

  57. 57. SBRT Induced Chest-Wall Pain: LQ Model The LQ Model accounts for the effect of fractionation on cell-killing through a single, tissue dependent, parameter α/β (for more detailed explanation see [Hall 2012]) → Normalized Total Dose (NTD), replaces ‘physical’ dose, and allows for comparison between different fractionation schemes: N T Dα/β = (nd)× α β α β +d +2 n − number of fractions d − dose per fraction Using NTD results in models that are easily implementable in the clinic (important). Therefore it would be of much interest if LQ formalism can be applied to predictive models in SBRT cohorts... E. Williams (MSKCC) Higgs → Hospital January 17, 2014 17 / 29

  114. 114. Karnofsky performance status (KPS) In medicine (oncology and other fields), performance status is an attempt to quantify cancer patients’ general well-being and activities of daily life. This measure is used to determine whether they can receive chemotherapy, whether dose adjustment is necessary, and as a measure for the required intensity of palliative care. It is also used in oncological randomized controlled trials as a measure of quality of life. E. Williams (MSKCC) Higgs → Hospital January 17, 2014 29 / 29

Survival Curves • The linear quadratic (LQ) model approximates clonogenic survival data with truncated power series expansion of natural log of surviving proportion S, → ln S = −α · d − β · d2 • LQ model overestimates the effect of radiation on clonogenicity in the high doses commonly used in SBRT • The multitarget model (MTM) provides another description of clonogenic survival, assuming n targets need to be hit to disrupt clonogenicity S = e−d/d1 · 1 − (1 − e−d/D0 )n • d1 and D0 are the parameters that determine the initial (first log kill) and final “slopes” of survival curve • Fits empirical data well, especially in the high-dose range → Universal Survival Curve hybridizes LQ model for low-dose range and the multitarget model asymptote for high-dose range E.
