Radiation Oncology at the Border: Dónde Estamos?:  Radiation Oncology at the Border: Dónde Estamos? Lars Ewell, PhD Assistant Professor, Department of Radiation Oncology, University of Arizona College of Medicine [email protected] Border Health Viscount Suites Hotel 10/28/05, Tucson AZ Radiation Oncology at the Border: Dondé Estamos?:  Radiation Oncology at the Border: Dondé Estamos? Introduction Radiation Oncology Radiation Oncology en Los Estados Unidos Radiation Oncology en Mexico Equipment Costs Accidents Future in Both Countries Conclusion Introduction:  Introduction Goal of radiation therapy is to kill cancerous cells, while sparing normal tissue. Radiation therapy can be either curative, or palliative. In contrast to diagnostic procedures, therapeutic doses are high. 5000 cGy vs 10 cGy (CAT scan). Radiation Oncology en Los Estados Unidos:  Radiation Oncology en Los Estados Unidos In the US in 1995, 41% of the 1,252,050 newly diagnosed cases of cancer were treated with radiation. These radiation treatments relieved suffering and extended the lives of the patients being treated. Along with early diagnosis, radiation treatments contributed to a 1.1% decrease in annual cancer death rates from 1993 through 20021. 1) Edwards et al., Journal of the National Cancer Institute, Vol. 97, No. 19, 1407-1427, October 5, 2005 Radiation Oncology en Los Estados Unidos:  Radiation Oncology en Los Estados Unidos 2) Radiation in Medicine - A Need for Regulatory Reform, K. Gottfried and G Penn editors, National Academy Press, Washington DC, 1996. 2 Radiation Oncology en Los Estados Unidos:  Radiation Oncology en Los Estados Unidos 2 Radiation Oncology en la Universidad de Arizona Hospital:  Radiation Oncology en la Universidad de Arizona Hospital http://www.rad-onc.arizona.edu/ ~ 60 Patients Cada Dia 5 Attending Physicians, 5 Residents 3 (4) Physicists (Físicos Médicos) Dosimetrists, Therapists, Nurses, Administrators 3 machines: Elekta SLi, Siemens S2 and Novalis Brainlab Brachytherapy: Permanent Prostate Seed, Eye Plaque (ocular melanoma), High Dose Radiotherapy (HDR) Pinnacle Treatment Planning System Marconi 5,000 CAT Scan Radiation Oncology en Los Estados Unidos: Agencies/Regulations:  Radiation Oncology en Los Estados Unidos: Agencies/Regulations Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC): Regulates reactor produced radio-nuclides used in radiotherapy. American Board of Radiology (ABR): Provides board certification for physicians and physicists. Radiological Physics Center (RPC): Provides quality assurance for radiotherapy physics equipment. Radiation Oncology en Mexico:  Radiation Oncology en Mexico Comisión Nacional de Seguridad Nuclear y Salvaguardias (CNSNS): Provides for regulation of radiotherapy in Mexico (see http://www.cnsns.gob.mx/index.htm ). Currently, there are 83 facilities licensed by the CNSNS to perform radiotherapy. Closest is perhaps in Hermosillo (none in Nogales). Radiation Oncology en Mexico:  United Nations Scientific Committee on the Effects of Atomic Radiation (UNSCEAR) report, Appendix D: Medical Radiation Exposure (year 2000). Four different categories for countries depending on how many physicians per population. Mexico – II:  < Mexico < Radiation Oncology en Mexico Radiation Oncology en Mexico:  Diagnostic Equipment: 1996, US: 6,800 CAT scanners, 3,500 MRI scanners. 1996, Mexico: 56 CAT scanners, 2 MRI scanners.

Lee Moffitt Cancer & Research Institute in Tampa Florida had received ~50% overdose of radiation3. A physicist had miscalibrated the machine and this resulted in the overdose. Error was caught when the RPC conducted a routine calibration check of the Novalis Brainlab linear accelerator. 3) Hemingway-Johnson, ‘Patients Given Too Much Radiation’, Tampa Tribune, April 2, 2005 . Radiation Oncology: Accidents:  Radiation Oncology: Accidents In early 2001, it was discovered that a number of patients treated in Panama had been given excessive radiation4. The Treatment Planning System (TPS), RTP/2 Multidata System Version 2.11, used to calculate the amount of radiation to deliver had a bug in it. Depending on the direction (clockwise or counterclockwise) of contour drawn, the TPS would either account for the block, or not. Error discovered when radiation oncologists noticed an excessive number of cases of diarrhea. 4) ‘Investigation of an Accidental Exposure of Radiotherapy Patients in Panama’, IAEA, August 2001 . Radiation Oncology: Future:  Radiation Oncology: Future Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT) Image Guided Radiation Therapy (IGRT) Adaptive Therapy En Mexico, Mas CAT Scans, Mas MRI scans Conclusion:  Conclusion By studying border health, there is much to be learned in the field of Radiation Oncology. This will continue to be an important area of study in the years to come. There are substantial benefits to be gained, both north and south of the border.
