A model for computing tumour control probability (TCP) is studied which embodies a dependence on the size of the irradiated volume, the density of clonogenic cells and the dose received, together with the alpha and beta parameters of the linear quadratic model of cell kill. The model can be used to describe situations where both the dose and the clonogenic cell densities are inhomogeneously distributed; however there is still uncertainty about its radiobiological parameters and the author aims… CONTINUE READING
