If the portal images PIs were incorrect, the patient position was corrected within the mask and the additional PI was performed to recheck the positioning. How should breathing motion be combined with others errors when drawing margins around clinical target volume?

Critical appraisal of treatment techniques gelmetric on conventional photon beams, intensity modulated photon beams and proton beams for therapy on intact breast. Unceertainties J Radiol ; The generated cold spots in the target volume can adversely affect the gEUD. It may be calculated individually for each patient and each direction xy and z and according to the number of PIs. A verification procedure to improve patient set-up accuracy using portal images.


They heard about the Annual Congress, which had been expanded to cover three different streams each day.

They were plotted for each OAR vs patient index. Concerning OARs, doses were optimized and recalculated without and with set-up error corrections.

As far as head and neck cancers are concerned, nasopharynx is the part that the disease most frequently strikes. Tolerance of normal tissue to therapeutic irradiation.

The assessment has taken into account the cases when patient set-up errors occur. Podcasts of interest to the SIG might be: Yorke E D, Dosimetric uncertainties and normal tissue tolerance, Ch.

Dosimetric impact of patient set-up errors on dose planning After having quantified the uncorrected set-up errors using MOSAIQ and EPID images, their dosimetric impact on the dose distributions was assessed. Published online May Systematic error was calculated as the average deviation of a particular reference structure between simulation and treatment and is given by: The distribution of the interfractional patient set-up errors for the nasopharynx: Margin calculation An optimum margin is the aperture that ensures the dose received by the target with the least possible amount of irradiation to the normal tissue.

The EUD concept is useful for analysing the dose received by the total volume of these structures Fogliata et al 32 and Seppenwoolde et al Med Phys ; The current definition of EUD is the generalized mean absorbed dose. Dosimetry and preliminary acute toxicity in the first men treated for prostate cancer on a randomized hypofractionation dose escalation trial. However, formatting rules can vary widely between applications and fields of interest or study.

Influence of daily setup measurements and corrections on the estimated delivered dose during IMRT treatment of prostate cancer patients. Geometric Uncertainties in Radiotherapy: Allow this favorite library to be seen by others Keep this favorite library private.
