Dose—volume histogram DVH of nasopharyngeal cancer planning showing the impact of existing set-up errors the solid lines and the case where set-up errors were corrected the dashed lines in cases of tumour and organs at risks. For example, in the case of the spinal cord, gdometric, optic chiasm, and the right and left parotids, Figure 9a—d indicates the organ and the end point obtained after irradiation.

This protocol was adopted because most of the patients have advanced cancer, which radiothreapy a large tumour volume, whereas it is impossible to maximize the dose to the PTV without overdosage to the surrounding organs, such as the optic nerves, brain stem or parotid glands.

How should breathing motion be combined with others errors when drawing geomerric around clinical target volume? Effectively, the EPIDs have become available in a large number of institutions for the sake of determining the set-up errors over previous years. You may have already requested this item.


Geometric uncertainties in radiotherapy : defining the planning target volume

Please read our Cookie policy for more information. Comparing different NTCP models than predict the incidence of radiation pneumonitis. Please verify that you are not a robot.

This expression overcomes the limitations of all survival models in order to generalize the application of EUD nir to normal structures and tumours. Geometrical uncertainties, radiotherapy planning margins, and the ICRU report.

EUD is also well suited for obtaining the biological effect for the heterogeneous irradiation of a volume of interest, 13 whereas TCP and NTCP are predictive models that will be affected by set-up errors and organ motion. Calculated dose for the right and left parotids that were situated in the irradiated field in cases of three-dimensional conformal radiation therapy geometriv.

A verification procedure to improve patient ujcertainties accuracy using portal images. Set-up errors are a combination of systematic and random errors. The corrective shifts were applied and kept constant for the subsequent treatment fractions until the next imaging was performed.

Specific parameters given for tumours and organs at risk OARs reported from Emami et al 29 used as input parameters to calculate generalized equivalent uniform dose Gy and tumour control probability.
