Risk of second cancer from scattered radiation of intensity-modulated radiotherapies with lung cancer

Abstract

PURPOSE To compare the risk of secondary cancer from scattered and leakage doses following intensity-modulated radiotherapy (IMRT), volumetric arc therapy (VMAT) and tomotherapy (TOMO) in patients with lung cancer. METHODS IMRT, VMAT and TOMO were planned for five lung cancer patients. Organ equivalent doses (OEDs) are estimated from the measured… (More)
