Abstract

To perform aggressive radiotherapy for vertebral metastases. Using very steep dose gradients from intensity-modulated radiotherapy (IMRT), a protocol based on the concept of partial volume dose to the spinal cord was evaluated. 50 patients with vertebral metastases were treated using IMRT.
