Results of primary surgery with or without locoregional radiotherapy (LRRT) are poor in stage III (T4b, NO-2, M0) breast cancer. Combination of mitoxantrone, mitomycin-c and methotrexate (MMM) has been reported to be as efficacious as doxorubicin based protocols with advantages of reduced nausea, vomiting, alopecia and cardiotoxicity. We tested MMM(More)
PURPOSE To study the influence of dose rate on step and shoot IMRT plan quality and deliverability. METHODS Five previously treated patients of carcinoma rectum (pre-operative) were studied. Planning target volume (PTV) and organ at risk (OAR) i.e. bladder and bowel were contoured. Step and shoot IMRT plans (6MV X-rays, 7-beam, 45Gy/25fraction) were(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the impact of different intensity-levels on step and shoot IMRT plan quality and deliverability. METHODS Five previously treated patients of carcinoma rectum (pre-operative) were studied. Planning target volume (PTV) and organ at risk (OAR) i.e. bladder and bowel were contoured.
