Early Prediction of Pathology Response of Chemoradiotherapy with FLT PET
The goal of this study is to determine if a new type of imaging method with F18-FLT is able to provide information about how well a course of esophagus cancer treatment is working and predict if the esophagus cancer will respond to the treatment. For more information, please contact a member of the research team at 212-305-9490.

A Multi-Site Prospective, Non-Randomized Study Utilizing the Contura Multi-Lumen Balloon (MLB) Breast Brachytherapy applicator to Deliver Accelerated Partial Breast Irradiation: Analysis of Dosimetric Success, Local Tumor Control, Cosmetic Outcome, Acute and Chronic Toxicity, and Clinical Scenarios for Optimal Use
An FDA-cleared device, the Contura, a balloon radiation delivery syststrong, allows your doctor to deliver the radiation into the tumor bed (a space left by your breast lumpectomy) while sparing radiation to the rest of the breast. The treatment time for this type of radiation therapy is 5 treatment days, which is about 4-6 weeks less than most other alternative treatments. The Contura MLB device may allow your doctor to better control how the radiation is distributed within the area of the breast to be treated. This may result in more accurate treatment of your cancer and less side effects. In this study, the information from your treatment with Contura will be included in a registry from which additional research will be performed. For more information, please contact Lillian Riley at 212-746-9297.
