  1. Abbreviations: ECOG ps Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group performance score.
  2. aPatient 1 was treated on two locations: 1a midshaft left femur and 1b distal left femur.
  3. bPatient 5 was retreated on the same location 4 months after the first treatment because of recurrent pain.
  4. cAppearance on x-ray or CT-imaging (if available) before treatment: intact = no or minimal architectural distortion of the cortical bone by the tumor; partially intact = both destructed and intact cortical bone in the targeted area; complete destruction = cortical bone completely displaced by tumor.
  5. dLong axis (transversal) × short axis (transversal) × craniocaudal dimension (coronal) as measured on pretreatment CE-MRI.
