The unwanted radiation transmission through the multileaf collimators could be reduced by the jaw tracking technique which is commercially available on Varian TrueBeam accelerators. On the basis of identical plans, this study aims to investigate the dosimetric impact of jaw tracking on the volumetric-modulated arc therapy (VMAT) plans. Using Eclipse treatment planning system (TPS), 40 jaw-tracking VMAT plans with various tumor volumes and shapes were optimized. Fixed jaw plans were created by… CONTINUE READING
