PURPOSE To quantify radiologic changes in the lung with CT after radiotherapy (RT) for breast cancer (BC) and to study their association with treatment techniques and symptomatic radiation pneumonitis (RP). METHODS AND MATERIALS CT scans of the lungs were performed before and 4 months after RT in 121 BC patients treated with four different RT techniques. The changes in mean density (MDCs) were analyzed at two lung levels (i.e., the central and apical CT slice). The central CT slice was also… CONTINUE READING
