Mediastinal critical structures such as trachea, bronchus, esophagus, and heart are among the dose-limiting factors for stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) to central lung lesions. The purpose of this study was to characterize the risk of esophagitis for patients treated with SBRT and to develop a statistical dose-response model to assess the equivalent uniform dose, D10%, D5cc, D1cc, and Dmax, to the esophagus and the risk of toxicity. Toxicity outcomes of a dose-escalation study of 56… CONTINUE READING
