PURPOSE: Without a clear definition of an optimal treatment plan, no optimization model can be perfect. Therefore, instead of automatically finding a single “optimal” plan, finding multiple, yet different near-optimal plans, can be an insightful approach to support radiation oncologists in finding the plan they are looking for. METHODS AND...

Treatment of prostate cancer can be done by performing brachytherapy, where radioactive seeds are transperineally implanted in the prostate via needles. A known problem during treatments with needles is the risk of targeting errors caused by the deviation of the needle from the planned path in the prostate. One of the main sources of this error...

Even if a Multi-modal Multi-Objective Evolutionary Algorithm (MMOEA) is designed to find all locally optimal approximation sets of a Multi-modal Multi-objective Optimization Problem (MMOP), there is a risk that the found approximation sets are not smoothly navigable because the solutions belong to various niches, which reduces the insight for...

A cost-effective, widely available, and practical diagnostic imaging tool for prostate cancer (PCa) localization is still lacking. Recently, the contrast-ultrasound dispersion imaging (CUDI) technique has been developed for PCa localization by quantifying dynamic contrast-enhanced ultrasound (DCE-US) acquisitions. Tissue stiffness is an...

Despite prostate cancer being the most prevalent type of cancer among males above the age of 55, nationalscreening programs are not conducted because of the high rate of false positives this would bring. This thesisintroduces surface acoustic wave sensors into the field of prostate cancer diagnosis which has the potential tomeasure the...

Prostate cancer is the most frequently diagnosed type of cancer among males. Brachytherapy has become a common treatment for this disease. In this form of radiotherapy, sealed radiation sources are placed through a implant catheters inside the prostate. This treatment affects the tumor cells locally and reduces damage to healthy tissues. However...

Suspicion of prostate cancer is based on diagnostic tests such as Prostate-Specific-Antigen (PSA) screening or a Digital-rectal-exam. Prostate needle biopsy can be performed to confirm the diagnosis and determine the stage of the disease. The golden standard in prostate biopsy is the trans-rectal biopsy under ultra-sound guidance (TRUS). TRUS is...

Purpose: To develop and validate a robust and accurate registration pipeline for automatic contour propagation for online adaptive Intensity-Modulated Proton Therapy (IMPT) of prostate cancer using elastix software and deep learning. Methods: A three-dimensional (3D) Convolutional Neural Network was trained for automatic bladder segmentation...

Objective: Our goal was to investigate the performance of an open source deformable image registration package, elastix, for fast and robust contour propagation in the context of online-adaptive intensity-modulated proton therapy (IMPT) for prostate cancer. Methods: A planning and 7–10 repeat CT scans were available of 18 prostate cancer...

For cancer, we develop a 2-D agent-based continuous-space game-theoretical model that considers cancer cells’ proximity to a blood vessel. Based on castrate resistant metastatic prostate cancer (mCRPC), the model considers the density and frequency (eco-evolutionary) dynamics of three cancer cell types: those that require exogenous...

Prostate cancer is a disease with very high prevalence and mortality in the western world. An early accurate diagnosis can increase treatment efficiency. Current diagnosing techniques consist in systematic biopsy sampling. Radiomics can infer tumor's phenotypic differentiations from medical images, providing an accurate guide for biopsy sampling...

Functional imaging techniques provide radiobiological information that can be included into tumour control probability (TCP) models to enable individualized outcome predictions in radiotherapy. However, functional imaging and the derived radiobiological information are influenced by uncertainties, translating into variations in individual TCP...

Fibroblasts are abundantly present in the prostate tumor microenvironment (TME), including cancer-associated fibroblasts (CAFs) which play a key role in cancer development. Androgen receptor (AR) signaling is the main driver of prostate cancer (PCa) progression, and stromal cells in the TME also express AR. High-grade tumor and poor clinical...

Introduction: High Dose Rate (HDR) Brachytherapy is a radiotherapy modality that involves temporarily introducing a highly radioactive source into the target volume with the use of an applicator. With respect to HDR brachytherapy for prostate cancer, an 192Iridium source is driven into the target volume through catheters implanted into the...

Objective: Prostate cancer remains one of the most prevalent forms of cancer in men aged over 65 years, with yearly around 11,200 new cases and 2,600 deaths in the Netherlands. Diagnosis of prostate cancer still relies on biopsies, which are unpleasant and invasive procedures for the patient. The new PET tracer, [68Ga]Sarabesin 3, aims to offer...
