Radiobiological considerations in the design of fractionation strategies for intensity-modulated radiation therapy of head and neck cancers.

Abstract

PURPOSE The dose distributions of intensity-modulated radiotherapy (IMRT) treatment plans can be shown to be significantly superior in terms of higher conformality if designed to simultaneously deliver high dose to the primary disease and lower dose to the subclinical disease or electively treated regions. We use the term "simultaneous integrated boost… (More)
