PURPOSE To study the feasibility of unified intensity-modulated arc therapy (UIMAT) which combines intensity-modulated radiotherapy (IMRT) and volumetric-modulated arc therapy (VMAT) optimization and delivery to produce superior radiation treatment plans, both in terms of dose distribution and efficiency of beam delivery when compared with either VMAT or(More)
PURPOSE Recently our group developed a unified intensity-modulated arc therapy (UIMAT) technique which allows for the simultaneous inverse-optimization and the combined delivery of volume-modulated arc therapy (VMAT) and intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT). The aim of this study was to evaluate the dosimetric benefits of UIMAT plans for radiation(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the dosimetric potential of respiratory-gated volumetric modulated arc therapy (VMAT) to reduce the dose to normal lung when treating early-stage non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) with stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT). METHODS AND MATERIALS Twenty patients with inoperable stage I/II NSCLC with motion greater than 5 mm were(More)
