PURPOSE To assess the dosimetric differences among volumetric modulated arc therapy (VMAT), scanned proton therapy (intensity-modulated proton therapy, IMPT), scanned carbon-ion therapy (intensity-modulated carbon-ion therapy, IMIT), and low-dose-rate (LDR) and high-dose-rate (HDR) brachytherapy (BT) treatment of localized prostate cancer. METHODS AND MATERIALS Ten patients were considered for this planning study. For external beam radiation therapy (EBRT), planning target volume was created… CONTINUE READING
