BACKGROUND A study was undertaken to assess clinical outcome and the role of proton therapy for local control of osteosarcoma (OSA). METHODS All patients who received proton therapy or mixed photon-proton radiotherapy from 1983 to 2009 at the Massachusetts General Hospital were reviewed. Criteria for proton therapy were the need for high dose in the context of highly conformal radiotherapy of unresected or partially resected OSA, positive postoperative margins, postoperative imaging studies… CONTINUE READING
