Monte Carlo dose verification of prostate patients treated with simultaneous integrated boost intensity modulated radiation therapy

Abstract

BACKGROUND To evaluate the dosimetric differences between Superposition/Convolution (SC) and Monte Carlo (MC) calculated dose distributions for simultaneous integrated boost (SIB) prostate cancer intensity modulated radiotherapy (IMRT) compared to experimental (film) measurements and the implications for clinical treatments. METHODS Twenty-two prostate… (More)
