ObjectiveThe present study compares in silico treatment plans of clinically established three-dimensional conformal radiotherapy (3D-CRT) with a hybrid technique consisting of intensity-modulated radiotherapy (IMRT) and volumetric modulated arc radiotherapy (VMAT) during normally fractionated radiation of mammary carcinomas with simultaneous integrated boost on the basis of dose–volume histogram (DVH) parameters.Patients and methodsRadiation treatment planning was performed with a hybrid and a… CONTINUE READING
