PURPOSE This treatment planning study compared pseudo-step-wedge intensity modulation (PSWIM), intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT), and conventional external irradiation, all combined with brachytherapy, for treatment of patients with cervical cancer. METHODS AND MATERIALS This was a prospective study of 10 patients treated with PSWIM delivering 50.4 Gy to the pelvic lymph nodes and 20 Gy to the cervical tumor. This treatment was compared with a conventional treatment plan with a… CONTINUE READING
