The goal is to spare these areas.

Advanced equipment targets radiation to particular areas in the brain Radiation oncologists at Hurry University Medical Center are intent on acquiring ways to avoid harm to the critically important hippocampus and limbic circuit of the brain when cranial radiation is required to deal with existing or potential metastatic cancers. The goal is to spare these areas, which are responsible for short-term memory, and also emotions, inspiration, and a variety of executive functions, such as decision-making and planning. Cranial radiation is used to destroy tumors that have spread to the brain, which happens in 20 to 25 % of all cancer patients.In depth Mutational Profiling for Risk Clinical and Stratification Administration of AML Based on cytogenetic classification alone, 63 percent of the patients in the ECOG E1900 cohort were categorized as having an intermediate-risk AML profile , whereas 19 percent of the patients were classified as having a favorable-risk profile and 18 percent as having an unfavorable-risk profile . Mutational analysis allowed for the separation of patients with cytogenetically described intermediate-risk AML into three subgroups with markedly different outcomes: a subgroup of patients with a favorable mutational risk profile , a subgroup of sufferers with an unfavorable mutational risk profile , and a subgroup of individuals who remained at intermediate risk .
