BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE To determine the interobserver variability of clinical target volume delineation of glandular breast tissue and of boost volume in tangential breast irradiation. PATIENTS AND METHODS Eighteen consecutive patients with left sided breast cancer treated by breast conserving surgery agreed to participate in our study. Volumes of the glandular breast tissue (CTV breast) and of the boost (CTV boost) were delineated by five observers. We determined 'conformity indices' (CI… CONTINUE READING
