Delivery of intensity-modulated radiation therapy with a conventional multileaf collimator: comparison of dynamic and segmental methods.

Intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) can be delivered with a conventional multileaf collimator (MLC), either in dynamic mode (DMLC) or in segmental mode (SMLC, also known as "step-and-shoot"). The advantage of DMLC is its ability to deliver the desired intensity profile produced by inverse planning with a high degree of fidelity. The SMLC method, on… CONTINUE READING
