Treatment planning tools that use biologically related models for plan optimization and/or evaluation are being introduced for clinical use. A variety of dose-response models and quantities along with a series of organ-specific model parameters are included in these tools. However, due to various limitations, such as the limitations of models and available(More)
The ever-increasing data demands in a radiation oncology (RO) clinic require medical physicists to have a clearer understanding of the information technology (IT) resource management issues. Clear lines of collaboration and communication among administrators, medical physicists, IT staff, equipment service engineers and vendors need to be established. In(More)
BACKGROUND Stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT) is evolving into a standard of care for unresectable lung nodules. Local control has been shown to be in excess of 90% at 3 years. However, some patients present with synchronous lung nodules in the ipsilateral or contralateral lobe or metasynchronous disease. In these cases, patients may receive multiple(More)
PURPOSE Stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT) is commonly used to treat unresectable lung nodules. Given its relative safety and effective local control, SBRT has also been used to treat recurrent lung nodules after high-dose external beam radiation (EBRT) to the lung. The toxicity of such treatment is unknown. METHODS AND MATERIALS Between 2006 and 2012,(More)
