PURPOSE The active breathing control (ABC) apparatus was used to quantify the effect of breathing motion on whole breast radiotherapy (RT) with standard wedges and intensity-modulated RT (IMRT). METHODS AND MATERIALS Ten patients with early-stage breast cancer underwent routine free-breathing (FB) CT simulations for whole breast RT. An ABC apparatus was used to obtain two additional CT scans with the breath held at the end of normal inhalation and normal exhalation. The FB scan was used to… CONTINUE READING
