BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE To contribute to the question whether the risk of radiation-related brachial plexopathy increases, remains constant or decreases with time after treatment. PATIENTS AND METHODS Between 12/80 and 9/93, 140 breast cancer patients received supraclavicular lymph node irradiation using a telecobalt unit. Total dose was 60 with 3Gy per(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE To analyse the relationship of individual cellular radiosensitivity and fibrosis after breast conserving therapy. A new model was used describing the percentage of patients developing fibrosis per year and per patient at risk. PATIENTS AND METHODS In a retrospective study, 86 patients were included, who had undergone breast(More)
PURPOSE New insights into the kinetics of late complications occurring after radiation therapy indicated that all patients have a constant risk of developing late tissue complications. These observations might have a great impact on studies relating normal tissue complications to individual radiosensitivity. METHODS AND MATERIALS Data previously published(More)
Synopsis of the introductory paragraph of the DEGRO consensus S2e-guideline recommendations for the radiotherapy of benign disorders, including physical principles, radiobiological mechanisms, and radiogenic risk. This work is based on the S2e-guideline recommendations published November 14, 2013. The basic principles of radiation physics and treatment(More)
