Late tissue reactions after single-fraction sequential half-body irradiation (HBI) in patients with non-Hodgkin's lymphomas.

Abstract

Lung and hepatic toxicities constituted the main radiation-related damage after half-body irradiation (HBI) used as the treatment for patients with non-Hodgkin's lymphomas (NHL). Liver damage was mostly transient after a single dose of 8 Gy and could be well monitored by serum enzyme levels. A dose-response relationship could be shown for lung damage in the… (More)
