OBJECTIVE To effectively treat spine metastases, significant dose must be delivered to regions surrounding the spinal cord. We present a study comparing both step-and-shoot intensity modulated radiotherapy (IMRT) and volumetric modulated arc therapy (VMAT) techniques to deliver a concomitant hypofractionated prescription dose to the diseased region and to the involved vertebrae. METHODS Seven-field IMRT and a single arc VMAT were inversely planned on five (two cervical and three thoracic… CONTINUE READING
