BACKGROUND The position and residual motion of the chest wall of breast cancer patients during treatment in deep inspiration breath-hold (DIBH) were investigated. MATERIAL AND METHODS The study included 58 left-sided breast cancer patients treated with DIBH three-dimensional (3D) conformal radiotherapy in 15 or 25 fractions. The DIBH levels were monitored using an external marker block placed on the chest, either shifted 5 cm to the right at the level of the xiphoid process (Group 1, 27… CONTINUE READING
