Irregular surface compensation for radiotherapy of the breast: correlating depth of the compensation surface with breast size and resultant dose distribution.

Abstract

Irregular surface compensation uses dynamic multileaf collimators to modify the fluence to an irregular surface along the cranio-caudal axis. The depth of the compensation surface can be varied by specifying a user-defined parameter called the transmission penetration depth (TPD). In our institution, a review has been carried out of 60 breast patients… (More)
