Feasibility of atlas-based active bone marrow sparing intensity modulated radiation therapy for cervical cancer.


BACKGROUND To test the hypothesis that atlas-based active bone marrow (ABM)-sparing intensity modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) yields similar dosimetric results compared to custom ABM-sparing IMRT for cervical cancer patients. METHODS We sampled 62 cervical cancer patients with pre-treatment FDG-PET/CT in training (n=32) or test (n=30) sets. ABM was… (More)
