BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE To perform a dosimetric analysis of whole brain radiotherapy using electronic tissue compensation (ECOMP) with dynamic multileaf collimation (dMLC) and its comparisons with inverse-planned intensity modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) with optimization constraints and conventional whole brain radiotherapy (WBRT). MATERIALS AND METHODS Ten patients (6 adult, 4 pediatric) who were treated at our institution were selected for this study. WBRT fields were defined using… CONTINUE READING
