PURPOSE To assess the safety and efficacy of intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) in the treatment of intracranial meningioma. METHODS AND MATERIALS Forty patients with intracranial meningioma (excluding optic nerve sheath meningiomas) were treated using IMRT with the NOMOS Peacock system between 1994 and 1999. Twenty-five patients received IMRT(More)
This study was undertaken to compare prostate and normal tissue dosimetry in prostate cancer patients treated with intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) and conventional 3-dimensional conformal radiotherapy (3DCRT) using an endorectal balloon for prostate immobilization. Ten prostate cancer patients were studied using both IMRT and conventional 3DCRT(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the predictors of xerostomia in the treatment of head-and-neck cancers treated with intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT), using the simultaneous modulated accelerated radiation therapy (SMART) boost technique. Dosimetric parameters of the parotid glands are correlated to subjective salivary gland function. MATERIALS AND METHODS(More)
