Integration of radiobiological modeling and indices in comparative plan evaluation: A study comparing VMAT and 3D-CRT in patients with NSCLC.

PURPOSE The purpose of this article was to generate an algorithm to calculate radiobiological endpoints and composite indices and use them to compare volumetric modulated arc therapy (VMAT) and 3-dimensional conformal radiation therapy (3D-CRT) techniques in patients with locally advanced non-small cell lung cancer. METHODS AND MATERIALS The study… CONTINUE READING
