Comparison of a micro-multileaf collimator with a 5-mm-leaf-width collimator for intracranial stereotactic radiotherapy.
PURPOSE To dosimetrically compare a micro-multileaf collimator (minimum leaf width of 3 mm) with the 5-mm-leaf multileaf collimator (MLC) of a standard linear accelerator for stereotactic conformalExpand

Evaluation of the planning target volume in the treatment of head and neck cancer with intensity-modulated radiotherapy: what is the appropriate expansion margin in the setting of daily image
PURPOSE To compare patterns of disease failure among patients treated with intensity-modulated radiotherapy (IMRT) in conjunction with daily image-guided radiotherapy (IGRT) for head and neck cancer,Expand

Skin dose effects of postmastectomy chest wall radiation therapy using brass mesh as an alternative to tissue equivalent bolus.
PURPOSE The use of brass mesh as a bolus is relatively uncommon in postmastectomy chest wall radiation therapy (PMRT). This study aimed to characterize the skin dose effects of using 2-mm fine brassExpand

Use of benchmark dose-volume histograms for selection of the optimal technique between three-dimensional conformal radiation therapy and intensity-modulated radiation therapy in prostate cancer.
PURPOSE The aim of this study was to develop and validate our own benchmark dose-volume histograms (DVHs) of bladder and rectum for both conventional three-dimensional conformal radiation therapyExpand

Comparison of peripheral dose from image-guided radiation therapy (IGRT) using kV cone beam CT to intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT).
PURPOSE The growing use of IMRT with volumetric kilovoltage cone-beam computed tomography (kV-CBCT) for IGRT has increased concerns over the additional (typically unaccounted) radiation doseExpand

Failure mode and effect analysis for delivery of lung stereotactic body radiation therapy.
PURPOSE To improve the quality and safety of our practice of stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT), we analyzed the process following the failure mode and effects analysis (FMEA) method. Expand

Commissioning experience with cone‐beam computed tomography for image‐guided radiation therapy
This paper reports on the commissioning of an Elekta cone‐beam computed tomography (CT) system at one of the first U.S. sites to install a “regular,” off‐the‐shelf Elekta Synergy (Elekta, Stockholm,Expand
