PURPOSE To determine the extent of interfractional setup errors and day-to-day organ motion errors by assessing daily bone alignment results and changes in soft tissue tumor position during hypofractionated, in-room computed tomography (CT)-guided stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) of lung cancer. METHODS AND MATERIALS Daily alignment results during SBRT were analyzed for 117 tumors in 112 patients. Patients received 40-50 Gy of SBRT in four to five fractions using an integrated CT… CONTINUE READING
