Dose distribution throughout a hollow organ is represented by either a dose-surface histogram (DSH) or a dose-wall histogram (DWH). A spherical shell model for the bladder and a cylindrical shell model for the rectum were introduced for quantifying the difference between the DWH and DSH. The difference was given by subtraction of the percent volume of the wall from the percent area of the surface for any specific dose level. Taking the dose-grid size and contour-delineation uncertainties into… CONTINUE READING
