Inter-fraction movements of the prostate and pelvic lymph nodes during IGRT

External radiotherapy of prostate cancer relies on the precise knowledge of the prostate location at treatment. Because the prostate is a mobile organ [ 1 – 3 ], and to minimize planning target volumes (PTV), radio opaque fiducial markers [ 4 – 9 ] …

Relationship among different skin dose definitions in high-dose-rate (HDR) balloon breast brachytherapy

Accelerated partial-breast irradiation using balloon high-dose-rate (HDR) brachytherapy has provided excellent outcomes, comparable tumor control, and low toxicity rates when compared to whole-breast irradiation [ 1 – 5 ]. One of the important …
