Incorporation of treatment plan spatial and temporal dose patterns into a prostate intrafractional motion management strategy.

PURPOSE Periodic MV∕KV radiographs taken during volumetric modulated arc therapy (VMAT) for hypofractionated treatment provide guidance in intrafractional motion management. The choice of imaging frequency and timing are key components in delivering the desired dose while reducing associated overhead such as imaging dose, preparation, and processing time… CONTINUE READING
