Proton Therapy for Malignant Pleural Mesothelioma: A Three Case Series Describing the Clinical and Dosimetric Advantages of Proton-Based Therapy

Cureus 2017 September [Link] Lee H, Zeng J, Bowen SR, Rengan R Abstract Malignant pleural mesothelioma (MPM) is a malignancy of the pleural cavity that typically presents at an advanced stage. Due to its large, circumferential clinical target volume (CTV) and proximity to major structures, including the heart and contralateral lung, delivering hemithoracic intensity-modulated radiotherapy […]

A pilot study of volumetric-modulated arc therapy for malignant pleural mesothelioma

Journal of Applied Clinical Medical Physics 2016 March [Link] Runxiao L1, Yankun C1, Lan W Abstract Malignant pleural mesothelioma (MPM) is an extremely difficult disease to treat. This pilot study investigates the feasibility of using volumetric-modulated arc therapy (VMAT) for malignant pleural mesothelioma (MPM), and compares VMAT to static field intensity-modulated radiotherapy (IMRT) for five […]
