PURPOSE This study quantifies pulmonary radiation toxicity in patients who received proton therapy for esophagus cancer. MATERIALS/METHODS We retrospectively studied 100 esophagus cancer patients treated with proton therapy. The linearity of the enhanced FDG uptake vs. proton dose was evaluated using the Akaike Information Criterion (AIC). Pneumonitis symptoms (RP) were assessed using the Common Toxicity Criteria for Adverse Events version 4.0 (CTCAEv4). The interaction of the imaging… CONTINUE READING
