PURPOSE We investigated daily needle applicator displacement during high-dose-rate interstitial brachytherapy. METHODS AND MATERIALS Ten patients with previously untreated uterine cervical cancer received 30Gy in five fractions during 3 days of high-dose-rate interstitial brachytherapy combined with external beam radiotherapy using our unique ambulatory technique. To analyze displacement, we obtained daily computed tomography (CT) images for 147 flexible needle applicators at 21 and 45h after… CONTINUE READING
