Vijayawada, Mar 15 (PTI) Eleven people, including four medical students, were killed and at least 40 injured in two separate accidents in Andhra Pradesh, police said today. Four MBBS students of Osmania Medical College in Hyderabad were killed in an accident on NH65 at Surayapalem on the outskirts of Vijayawada as the private Volvo bus they were travelling in rammed into a tree.As many as 31 other students were injured in the mishap last night. Driver of the bus, who the injured students alleged was in an inebriated state, was also killed in the incident.The students were returning to Hyderabad in the specially-hired bus from Amalapuram in East Godavari district when the accidents took place around midnight.In all, there were 48 medical students in the bus, who were returning after taking part in a sports meet in Amalapuram.The deceased students have been identified as M Pranay and Rajaram (fourth year) and Giri Laxman and M Vinay Teja (house surgeons).”We suspected that the driver was drunk and we called the bus operator to change the driver. The operator assured us that the driver would be changed at Vijayawada but that did not happen. The drunk driver was driving the vehicle at a high speed when it rammed into a roadside tree,” some of the injured students, who were being treated in a private hospital in Vijayawada, said.Telangana State Health Minister P Laxma Reddy rushed to Vijayawada to visit the injured students. He said the Telangana government would bear the medical expenses of the injured students.advertisement “We will take necessary action against those responsible for the accident after an inquiry,” the minister said at the hospital. Chief Ministers of AP and Telangana, N Chandrababu Naidu and K Chandrasekhar Rao, expressed grief over the accident. Naidu directed the officials to immediately submit a report on the causes for the accident. He also directed state Transport Minister Sidda Raghava Rao to study the reasons for the series of road accidents and take urgent steps for their prevention. (MORE) PTI DBV DK DV
West Indies captain Jason Holder has become the No.1 all-rounder in the ICC Test rankings after his sensational performance in the first Test against England in Barbados. Holder hit his maiden Test double century and grabbed two wickets in the match to lead Windies to a 381-run win against England at the Kensington Oval.Holder’s all-rounder show helped rise two places to take the No.1 spot. Holder leapfrogged Shakib Al Hasan and Ravindra Jadeja to the top spot. He also rose sharply in the batting rankings, by a remarkable 25 spots, and now sits comfortably at No.33.The week was all about Holder, who was also named in the ICC Test team of the year 2018 for his all-round skills. He has, for the most part, been known as a bowling all-rounder, but he massively enhanced his batting reputation by stroking a marvelous unbeaten 202 against England. Under his leadership, the Windies also bowled England out for 77 and 246.He also picked the crucial wickets of Joe Root and Keaton Jennings, and all in all, his all-round rating jumped to a career-best 440 points.Among the others to make notable gains in the latest update to the rankings, following the Tests in Barbados and Brisbane, were the Australian trio of Pat Cummins, Travis Head and Marnus Labuschagne, along with the Windies’ Kemar Roach, Roston Chase and Shane Dowrich.Meanwhile, Dowrich, who supported him with a sedate 116*, also made a 14-spot jump to No.47. Shimron Hetmyer’s scores of 81 and 31 helped him rise 11 places to No.40.After Australia’s three-day win against Sri Lanka in the Brisbane pink-ball Test, there were big gains for their young batsmen in the batting rankings. Marnus Labuschagne made the biggest leap, moving 21 places to No.84, while Travis Head rose 17 places to No.43.advertisementAmong the bowlers, Pat Cummins pipped Vernon Philander to No.3 on the ICC Test rankings for bowlers after claiming ten wickets in the match, including a career-best 6/23.Jhye Richardson, who was handed his first baggy green in that match, also made an impressive entry at No.80 after claiming match figures 5/45.For the Windies, Kemar Roach, who took 5/17 in England’s first innings, climbed five places to No.20 while Chase shot up 14 places to No.14 after his excellent 8/60 in the second innings.It wasn’t all bad for players of the losing teams, though. Most notably, England’s Rory Burns climbed 14 places in the batsmen’s rankings to No.99 after making 84.Sri Lanka’s Niroshan Dickwella climbed to No.37 on the back of his 64, while Suranga Lakmal rose to No.31 on both the bowlers’ (two-place rise) and the all-rounders’ (three-place rise) charts after his spell of 5/75 and a knock of 24.Also Watch:
Bayern München Bayern legend Augenthaler: Hiring Heynckes was the right decision Niklas König Last updated 2 years ago 01:29 10/13/17 FacebookTwitterRedditcopy Comments(0) Getty Images Bayern München Bundesliga The former Bayern Munich defender and assistant manager isn’t surprised to see the club’s former coach return in a caretaker role. Former Bayern Munich defender Klaus Augenthaler believes the club made the right decision in bringing Jupp Heynckes back as manager.After sacking Carlo Ancelotti, Bayern brought Heynckes back last week to see out the rest of the campaign before a permanent boss is hired in the summer.Lewandowski 2/9 to score v Freiburg Article continues below Editors’ Picks Why Barcelona god Messi will never be worshipped in the same way in Argentina Lyon treble & England heartbreak: The full story behind Lucy Bronze’s dramatic 2019 Liverpool v Man City is now the league’s biggest rivalry and the bitterness is growing Megan Rapinoe: Born & brilliant in the U.S.A. The 72-year-old has been out of management since retiring in 2013 allowing Pep Guardiola to take charge in Munich.Despite the long absence, Augenthaler thinks Heynckes is the right man to take over the club for the rest of the 2017-18 campaign. “I think it was the right decision [to sign Heynckes],” Augenthaler told Goal . Augenthaler, who won seven Bundesliga titles with Bayern between 1976 and 1991, believes the club was likely speaking to other candidates before settling on Heynckes in a caretaker role. “I’m sure Bayern did not only say, ‘Now we sign Jupp and things will become great again.’ Probably they talked as well with other candidates.”There have been two coaches with a running contract: (Liverpool manager) Jurgen Klopp and (Hoffenheim manager) Julian Nagelsmann. I think, Bayern spoke to them.”The only coach, which would have been free, was (former Dortmund manager) Thomas Tuchel. The Bayern bosses thought about that as well, but probably it didn’t fit. But that’s just an assumption.”And so Bayern signed Heynckes.”Despite Heynckes’s absence from the game, Augenthaler said he wasn’t totally surprised to see the former Bayern coach return when his old club came calling. “I know the job as the coach and you really should never say never,” Augenthaler said. “Moreover Bayern is a matter of the heart for Jupp.”

“A sunny, baroque pop track featuring Tiersen’s characteristic subjection of acoustic instruments such as bells and strings to digital processing, indicative of his approach to the whole album” – The Quietus on “A Midsummer Evening”“Orchestral pop that feels both capable of being stripped down to an acoustic format while being eerily bombasitc.” – Prefix Mag on “A Midsummer Evening”“A Midsummer Evening,” dense with manipulated textures, strings and choral chanting, began, as the album did, as little more than noise from toys. The initial recordings took place in Iceland and are explained here by Tiersen: “The idea was to start with toy instruments as a reference to my early works, then manipulate the sounds electronically. Then I added a new layer of acoustic instrumentation, and repeated the same process. Finally I repeated the process once more with strings, so the whole album was a constant back and forth from acoustic to electronic to digital, and then back to analogue.”This layering of textures formed thematic threads that bind the album: the stones, the minerals, their infinite nature… Language too is integral to this album. “Ar Maen Bihan”, a story written by Emilie Quinquis in the Breton language, was translated by Amiina to Icelandic (‘Steinn’). Elsewhere on the album Aidan Moffat (Arab Strap) and Ólavur Jákupsson (a member of Tiersen’s live band) both contributed tracks on the same theme – stones – Moffat’s in English and Jákupsson’s in Faroese.∞ (Infinity) is the follow up to 2011’s Skyline (which was described by MOJO as “life affirming”, by Clash as a “…remarkable musical talent” and in Drowned In Sound’s 8* review as “euphoric”), and will be premiered at an exclusive live performance at the ICA, London, on May 14th- which sold out in less than 5 hours. The ICA is followed by a tour of North America in May and June, including dates in Mexico City, Toronto, New York City, Los Angeles, Montreal, and Chicago to name a few. ∞ (Infinity) was conceived in Iceland, where work began on the album, and in Ushant Island, Brittany. The album was produced by Yann Tiersen and mixed by Gareth Jones with Yann Tiersen and Daniel Miller.Hailing from Brittany, Yann Tiersen is one of the most revered artists of his generation with a reputation first established by his studio albums (which included 1997’s Cascade Street 1998’s The Lighthouse and to 2005’s Les Retrouvailles). The early albums were combined and used for the Amelie soundtrack (2001), earning him global recognition. Recent albums on Mute, Dust Lane (2010) and Skyline (2011) have seen his prominence build, along with projects such as the recent live score to the Fantômas series which he curated at the Théâtre de Châtelet with guests Tim Hecker, James Blackshaw, Loney Dear and Amiina.Order ∞ (Infinity) on iTunes or Amazon!www.yanntiersen.com Editors’ Recommendations Stirred or Shaken?

New Delhi: The monsoon is expected to be normal in August and September, the India Meteorological Department said on Thursday in its forecast for the second half of the four-month rainfall season.Quantitatively, the rainfall across the country as a whole during the two months is likely to be 100 per cent of the Long Period Average (LPA) with a model error of plus or minus 8 per cent, the IMD said. The rainfall in August is likely to be 99 per cent of the LPA with an error margin of plus or minus 9 per cent, it said. Also Read – India gets first tranche of Swiss bank a/c detailsThe LPA of the rainfall over the country as a whole for the second half of the monsoon season (August to September) based on the 1961-2010 period is 42.83 cm. “The probabilistic forecast suggests that the rainfall across the country during the second half of Southwest Monsoon season is most likely to be normal (94-106 per cent of LPA) with a probability of 45 per cent,” the IMD said. In April, the IMD had made the forecast of a normal monsoon. Mritunjay Mohapatra, Director General of IMD, said the next two weeks are expected to bring good rainfall due to the formation of a low-pressure area in the north Bay of Bengal.
Mumbai: Reserve Bank deputy governor NS Vishwanathan Tuesday exhorted bankers to ensure timely resolution of stressed assets under the new framework to extract the best value and underlined the need for dealing only in “genuine” cases. The central bank will be coming out with the final guidelines for private and foreign bankers’ compensation soon, he said, speaking at the annual industry event Fibac. Vishwanathan said the RBI’s revised framework on resolution of stressed assets introduced on June 7 is “less intrusive” as it gives banks the leeway to draft their own resolution plans for a particular case. “Timely resolution is very important. I’d request you to ensure that the resolutions are done in time, not just for the regulatory requirement but also because it will result in better valuation going forward,” he said. Also Read – Thermal coal import may surpass 200 MT this fiscal”We’ve given a lot of freedom to banks to determine various contours. We are making less intrusive regulations and hope that banks will use this to deal with genuine stress in their balance sheets to address the problem,” he added. The RBI issued the new NPA recognition and resolution guidelines on June 7 after the Supreme Court had in April declared the earlier one issued on February 12, 2018 as ultra vires. The new framework lays focus on better coordination between banks while dealing with a stressed assets by mandating them to sign inter-creditor agreements and decide on a resolution strategy in 30 days, which will have to be implemented in 180 days.
LANSING, Mich. — Michigan’s new governor and attorney general moved quickly Wednesday to review the legality of a contentious state deal to run an oil pipeline beneath a crucial section of the Great Lakes.Democratic Gov. Gretchen Whitmer announced her request for a legal opinion from Attorney General Dana Nessel, a Democrat who welcomed the opportunity and expressed concern with a law that facilitated the agreement between the state and Canadian pipeline company Enbridge. Such opinions, while not the same as legal rulings, are considered to bind state agencies unless reversed by a court. Both Whitmer and Nessel had questioned the deal before taking office Tuesday.The Republican-led Legislature and GOP former Gov. Rick Snyder rushed to enact the law after Whitmer was elected in November. The new Mackinac Straits Corridor Authority then quickly approved the proposal to drill a tunnel through bedrock up to 100 feet (30.4 metres) below the more than 4-mile-wide (6.4 kilometre) channel that links Lakes Huron and Michigan. A new segment of pipeline would extend through the tunnel, replacing twin pipes that have lain along the lake bed since 1953. They are part of Enbridge’s Line 5, which carries crude oil and natural gas liquids used in propane from Superior, Wisconsin, through northern Michigan to refineries in Sarnia, Ontario.“There are serious and significant concerns regarding (Public Act) 359, which the previous governor and legislature initiated and passed without the care and caution one would expect for an issue that will have a monumental impact on our state,” Nessel said in a statement.Whitmer said resolving any legal uncertainty over the law, the Mackinac Straits Corridor Authority and the panel’s speedy approval of the agreement “is necessary to assure that we can take all action necessary to protect the Great Lakes, protect our drinking water and protect Michigan jobs.”Line 5 has drawn fierce criticism in recent years from environmental groups, native tribes and tourism-related businesses fearful of a rupture that, according to worst-case scenarios outlined by university researchers, could pollute hundreds of miles of Great Lakes shoreline.Enbridge has steadfastly defended the pipelines, contending they are in sound condition and could last indefinitely. But with public pressure mounting amid reports of gaps in protective coating and dents from a ship anchor strike in April, the company embraced the tunnel option.Whitmer asked Nessel six legal questions, including whether a requirement that authority members serve six years or more violates a constitutional four-year limit for newly created commissions. She also wants to know whether the new law improperly made changes to a 1952 law.David Eggert, The Associated Press

The best player in the world, under pressure that would break lesser men, appears to be using it somehow to make himself even better. LeBron James’s NBA Finals performance so far is the kind of thing we like to dream great athletes can do.Unfortunately, he’s probably going to lose.Monday on FiveThirtyEight, my colleague Neil Paine discussed how both James’s basic and advanced stats point to his being one of the all-time great finals series. On the mothersite, Kevin Pelton argues that James should win the MVP based on WARP (wins above replacement player), and it seems that the idea that James should win the MVP even if the Cavs lose is getting popular.So I’d like to look at James’s production from a slightly different angle. Rather than just look at how James’s production stands on its own right, let’s see how much impact James has had on the series relative to everyone else — combined.Through the first five games, James has gathered an incredible 18 percent of all the points scored, assists dished and rebounds collected by anyone in this series. If that stands, it will be 1.1 percentage points higher than the next highest over the past 46 years (since they started having a finals MVP in 1969). Here are the top 20, plus James: Michael Jordan199116.28.824.315.6✔✔ Shaquille O’Neal200018.020.25.416.9✔✔ Michael Jordan199718.58.615.115.3✔✔ Michael Jordan1998126.96.36.1994.1✔✔ Kobe Bryant2009188.8.131.524.9✔✔ The player closest to James who didn’t win the MVP was Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, who had a 15.5 percent share in the 1974 finals. Abdul-Jabbar and the Milwaukee Bucks lost the finals that year to the Boston Celtics, and the MVP went to John Havlicek. The only person to win the finals MVP in a losing effort was Jerry West in 1969, and he happens to be right around the fringe where players any more dominant almost always get the MVP trophy.Meanwhile, regular-season MVP Stephen Curry — the most likely candidate to deny James (again) — presently has the second-highest share in the finals with 11.5 percent of all points, rebounds and assists. If it holds, this 6.5 percentage point gap between first and second would be the second-largest ever (since 1969):The only player with a greater than 4 percentage point gap who didn’t win the MVP was James last year, when the winner was Spurs breakout star and current Defensive Player of the Year Kawhi Leonard.In other words, not only has James been the most dominant player in these finals, he has also been one of the most dominant “most dominant” players in finals history.Of course dominating production isn’t necessarily the same as “value,” and I’ve dabbled in esoteric theories of value myself (like, say, how Dennis Rodman might have been more valuable than Michael Jordan).Still, this gap between James and most other finals MVPs — barring any substantial changes — is so wide that unless you rule out the defeated on principle, it will be hard to argue that he doesn’t belong in their company.
At times last year, the Ohio State men’s basketball team seemed to have one plan: get the ball to Evan Turner and get out of the way. This season, however, the Buckeyes appear to have discovered an alternative. The early emergence of David Lighty and Jon Diebler as viable scoring options has given OSU some much-needed versatility. “I’ve been saying all along we have the greatest wings in the country,” center Dallas Lauderdale said.While Lauderdale’s claim might be slightly hyperbolic, there is no denying the Buckeyes have ability on the perimeter.Lighty, who in his first two years at OSU was known more for his defensive prowess rather than his ability to score, is averaging 12.3 points per game this season and scored a career-high 22 in last week’s win over Lipscomb.Diebler is scoring nearly 16 points a game and leads the Big Ten in three-pointers made per game. If they continue to score at their current pace, it will remove a lot of pressure from Turner, who has been double, triple and even quadruple-teamed by opponents at times this season. With the Buckeyes’ hot shooting, Turner said the defense will have more to worry about.“Once I get past the three-point line, there was a second man coming and once I get in the paint there were three men coming,” Turner said. “If they’re going to do that, they’ll pick their poison.”Turner said he will simply take whatever the defense will give him.“If I’m open I’m going to take the shot; if I’m not I’m going to dish it off,” Turner said. “I just want to play and make sure my team wins.”However, the Buckeyes have already seen what can happen on a night when their shooters are struggling. In the first half of OSU’s loss to North Carolina on Nov. 19, the Buckeyes shot only 29 percent from the field, leaving them in an insurmountable 14-point hole at halftime. Diebler and sophomore William Buford headlined the shooting woes, going a combined 7-29 from the field. Though Diebler seems to have successfully escaped any potential slump, Buford is still struggling to find his shot. Buford is shooting 38 percent from the field, something that coach Thad Matta said needs to change in order for his team to be successful. “Will is a guy that, he obviously wants to play well,” Matta said. “But by the same token, Will likes to win and we need Will to play well in order for us to win.”Regardless of how much Buford or any of the other Buckeyes are contributing, the onus will fall on Turner to lead the way on the offensive end. Fortunately for OSU, Turner has had no trouble carrying the load. The Buckeye point guard is third in the Big Ten in scoring, and leads the conference in rebounds and assists — gaudy numbers that have earned him conference Player of the Week honors in each of the last three weeks.Turner knows that as he goes, so go the Buckeyes.“When the coach calls my number I try to do my best with it,” Turner said. “If my team needs a boost, I’m confident enough to give them a boost. If the game is close and we need scores, I’ve been doing that in the past and I plan on doing that in the future.”

THERE IS ONE fun question that lots of Irish people are asking themselves today – what would you do with all that money?It might seem a bit daunting or even as scary as hell, so just in case it happens, here is some straight up financial advice to make sure that you don’t make a mess of it. Firstly, the numbers. If you put €175 million in a bank account and got an interest rate of 0.25% – you would get an income before tax of €36,458 per month and you would not be eating into your money.If, however, you were a bit more clever about it and you invested it in a long-term investment portfolio, which generated 4% per annum, you could be looking at an income of around €583,333 per month or €7 million a year, again without touching your own dough.Tax is an issue so you need to decide who you want to share this money with.The Lotto frown on it, but if you are planning on giving big chunks of the money away, you need to get the people who you want to gift money to, to sign the ticket too.Because the people who sign the ticket don’t pay any tax on the money they get.But a word of warning, the amount of money you win is divided equally by all the people who have their name on the ticket.So you might want to think long and hard on whether or not you invite your brother-in-law to share in your big win.Your next steps are up to you – but my suggestion would be that whether or not you intend to keep working, do take some time off.Be resolute now that you are making no decision that costs more than €10,000 in the next eight weeks – ie until the dust settles a little. That means that you are not buying anything, clearing any debt, gifting money or donating to charity until the eight weeks is up and the euphoria and media interest have died down.When it comes to taking time off, you might want to do a staycation in Ireland and stay in a lovely suite in a nice hotel, or a villa in Europe, or maybe a private yacht in the Bahamas. But remember the €10,000 rule – don’t try to buy the yacht yet. You have a decision to make, but one thing that you have got in abundance now is time.You have plenty of time to sit back and think about what you want to do with your life now.Don’t rush that – remember this money will either make you or destroy you.People you haven’t heard from for years, who were gone from your life, will be back in touch. They may be genuinely wishing you well or they may be fishing for some cash. The problem is, particularly in the early days you, won’t be able to figure out who is who.You may get the feeling that everyone just wants a piece of your pot and nobody is interested in you anymore.This feeling is inevitable and, in time, you can get advice on a strategic plan about how to gift to people in your life and to the charities that are important to you. Make no decisions and no promises in the early days. If you have been happy in your life up to now this does not have to change, but it will if you don’t remember to keep doing the things you have always done that make you happy.I speak to clients who have suddenly come into a lot of money (usually they have won money, inherited money or sold their business). Once the dust settles, they all come out with the same things.Money bought them the ability to do what they want but time with the people important to them, having experiences that they enjoy, is what life is all about.Research from Harvard has shown that money can, in fact, buy you happiness but not in the way you think.They found that buying material objects for yourself makes little difference to your happiness levels, buying experiences like holidays or sporting events has more of a positive impact – but if you really want to buy happiness the best bang for your buck is to buy things for other people or gift money to a charity.It’s not me saying it – that is the findings of the Harvard research. Wouldn’t it be nice to have €175 million for yourself to test out that theory in practice?Eoin McGee is a financial planner and principal of Prosperous Financial Planning. He offered financial advice on two RTE TV shows recently, How to be Good With Money and This Crowded House. Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article 28 Comments

New Delhi: Air India has capped fares of all its flights from Delhi to Srinagar and vice versa till August 15, a spokesperson for the airline said on Sunday. The revision in fares comes in view of the advisory issued on Friday directing tourists and Amarnath yatris to leave the Valley immediately citing security concerns. Speaking to ANI, Dhananjay Kumar said Air India flights from Srinagar to New Delhi will cost Rs. 6,715, while flights from New Delhi to Srinagar will cost Rs. 6,899. Also Read – Trinamool, BJP activists scuffle at Dilip Ghosh’s event Advertise With Us The Ministry of Civil Aviation has advised airlines to rein in surging airfares for pilgrims returning from Amarnath Yatra. Airfares for flights from Srinagar over the weekend shot up to abnormally high levels following the security advisory for tourists and pilgrims. For a one-way direct flight from Srinagar to Delhi, even low-cost airlines such as IndiGo, SpiceJet, GoAir and AirAsia charged between Rs 10,000 to Rs 22,000, according to travel portals, as against around Rs 3,000.

Other places like Amritsar, Chandigarh, and Jaipur also witnessed a jump in airfares ranging between Rs 10,000 to Rs 19,000. Web portals of several airlines with flights from Srinagar on Saturday and Sunday showed that virtually all seats were sold out. The advisory to Amarnath yatris was issued after it was announced in a joint press conference of the Army and police forces in Srinagar that weapons and ammunition were recovered in the Amarnath Yatra route. Advertise With Us They also said terrorists from Pakistan were planning to launch an attack on Amarnath Yatra pilgrims, based on credible inputs. In view of the additional rush of passengers, the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) had on Friday asked Indian airlines to be prepared to operate extra flights to and from Srinagar to fly out Amarnath Yatris and tourists from the Valley. Soon after DGCA’s directions, airlines made announcements to give a full fee waiver on rescheduling/cancellation for all its flights to/from Srinagar.

News | Brachytherapy Systems | August 14, 2019 Efficacy of Isoray’s Cesium Blu Showcased in Recent Studies August 14, 2019 — Isoray announced a trio of studies recently reported at scientific meetings and published in medica read more August 13, 2008 – Following a study published in the July 2008 issue of Clinical Lung Cancer, Accuray Inc. announced today that emerging clinical data continues to support CyberKnife radiosurgery for the treatment of lung cancer.The CyberKnife Robotic Radiosurgery System is a robotic radiosurgery system designed to noninvasively treat tumors. Using continual image guidance technology and computer controlled robotic mobility, the CyberKnife System automatically tracks, detects and corrects for tumor and patient movement in real-time throughout the treatment. This enables the CyberKnife System to deliver high-dose radiation with pinpoint precision, which minimizes damage to surrounding healthy tissue and eliminates the need for invasive head or body stabilization frames.The study, titled “Fractionated Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy in the Treatment of Primary, Recurrent, and Metastatic Lung Tumors,” was conducted at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center (UPMC) in Pittsburgh, and followed three patient populations over an average 12 month period: 1) patients with primary stage I nonsmall cell lung cancer, 2) patients whose cancer recurred after it was surgically removed, and 3) patients with metastatic tumors in the lung. All patients were treated on an outpatient basis with CyberKnife radiosurgery over a three-day period. These patients had limited treatment options because they were medically inoperable (unable to undergo surgery due to pre-existing medical conditions or prior surgery) or refused surgery.In the first year following treatment, control of tumor growth was achieved in 85 percent of primary cancer patients, 92 percent of recurrent lung cancer patients, and 62 percent of metastatic cancer patients during the first year of follow-up. The study noted that this is drastically different from response rates for radiation therapy in this patient population, which are typically associated with poor local control and survival rates ranging from 10 to 30 percent at five-year follow-up.The study also reported few of the complications or side effects that are typical with radiation or other more invasive treatments within the first 12 months of follow-up. In addition, unlike conventional radiation therapy that is typically delivered over four to six weeks, patients completed CyberKnife treatment in three short outpatient visits. “The CyberKnife System’s ability to noninvasively treat lung cancer with favorable local control rates and minimal toxicities make it an important tool in the fight against lung cancer,” said Dwight Heron, M.D., chairman of the radiation oncology department at UPMC Shadyside. “As demonstrated by our study, this is particularly important for patients who previously had few or no other options because it gives them a chance for a positive outcome while maintaining their quality of life.”UPMC treated all the study participants using the Synchrony Respiratory Tracking System, which is reportedly the only system in the world that can deliver beams that physically move in real-time with 3D tumor motion. The technology allows patients to breath normally throughout the treatment, while still achieving pinpoint precision and minimizing damage to surrounding healthy tissue. According to the study, Synchrony “can allow for reductions in planning target volume margins because of less movement uncertainty while maintaining the desired level of accuracy.”For more information: www.accuray.com.
