New tools are needed to help in evaluating 3-D treatment plans because of the large volume of data. One technique which may prove useful is the application of complication probability calculations. A method of calculating complication probabilities for inhomogeneously irradiated normal tissues is presented in this paper. The method uses clinical estimates of tolerance doses for a few discreet conditions of uniform partial organ irradiation, an empirical fit of a continuous function to these… CONTINUE READING
