This planning study evaluates the potential of intensity modulated treatment fields and inverse planning techniques in stereotactic radiosurgery to reduce healthy tissue dose. Twenty patients previously treated with stereotactic radiosurgery for arteriovenous malformation (AVM) were replanned with each of 4 techniques: circular non-coplanar arcs, dynamic arcs, static conformal fields, and intensity modulated radiosurgery (IMRS). Patients were selected having a maximum AVM dimension at least 20… CONTINUE READING
