Spine SBRT involves the delivery of very high doses of radiation to targets adjacent to the spinal cord and is most commonly delivered in a single fraction. Highly conformal planning and accurate delivery of such plans is imperative for successful treatment without catastrophic adverse effects. End-to-end testing is an important practice for evaluating the entire treatment process from simulation through treatment delivery. We performed end-to-end testing for a set of representative spine… CONTINUE READING
