AIMS Volumetric modulated arc radiotherapy (VMAT) is used for inoperable, locally advanced nonsmall cell lung cancer, where three-dimensional conformal radiotherapy (3D-CRT) cannot yield an acceptable plan. METHODS The planning and treatment data were prospectively collected on the first 18 patients treated using VMAT plans. We analyzed the actual… CONTINUE READING
