Evaluation of dose calculation accuracy of treatment planning systems at hip prosthesis interfaces.

Abstract

There are an increasing number of radiation therapy patients with hip prosthesis. The common method of minimizing treatment planning inaccuracies is to avoid radiation beams to transit through the prosthesis. However, the beams often exit through them, especially when the patient has a double-prosthesis. Modern treatment planning systems employ algorithms… (More)
