Recently, the use of brachytherapy for partial breast irradiation has increased significantly. The aim of this study was to make dosimetric comparisons between conventional (CONV) and CT-based optimized dosimetry systems applied to breast implants. 17 patients treated with high-dose-rate (HDR) interstitial brachytherapy were selected for the study. Two patients had two-plane and 15 three-plane implants. Treatment planning was based on conventional two isocentric radiographs and dose point… CONTINUE READING
