To examine the relationship between dose distribution and tumor shrinkage of acoustic neurinomas, correlation coefficients between distribution probabilities of some dose areas and residual tumor ratios of 21 cases were studied at 2 years. Approximating a dose-volume histogram to beta-distribution, two essential dose areas for tumor control were extracted:(More)
