PURPOSE Recent studies with two fractionation schemes predicted that the volume of chest wall receiving >30 Gy (V30) correlated with chest wall pain after stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) to the lung. This study developed a predictive model of chest wall pain incorporating radiobiologic effects, using clinical data from four distinct SBRT fractionation schemes. METHODS AND MATERIALS 102 SBRT patients were treated with four different fractionations: 60 Gy in three fractions, 50 Gy in… CONTINUE READING
