PURPOSE To compare the interfractional variation in pancreatic tumor position using bony anatomy and implanted fiducial markers. METHODS AND MATERIALS Five consecutively treated patients with pancreatic adenocarcinoma who received definitive intensity-modulated radiation therapy at Stanford University (Stanford, CA) underwent fiducial seed placement and treatment on the Varian Trilogy system (Varian, Palo Alto, CA) with respiratory gating. Daily orthogonal kilovoltage imaging was performed to… CONTINUE READING
