PURPOSE To investigate bowel exposure using prone, supine, or two different belly boards for rectal cancer intensity modulated RT plans using a full bladder protocol. METHODS AND MATERIALS For 11 volunteers four MR scans were acquired, on a flat table in prone, supine, and on two different belly boards (IT-V Medizintechnik GmbH® (BB1) and CIVCO® (BB2)), using a full bladder protocol. On each scan a 25×2 Gy IMRT plan was calculated. RESULTS BB2 led to an average bowel area volume reduction… CONTINUE READING
