PURPOSE Adjuvant high-dose-rate vaginal brachytherapy (VB) is commonly used in endometrial cancer. We evaluated the dosimetric and cost differences of using either a single plan or replan prior to each fraction for single- and multi-channel VB. METHODS AND MATERIALS We evaluated 84 fractions from 25 patients at our institution (16 single-channel patients each 3 fractions; 9 multi-channel patients each 4 fractions). All fractions were preceded by a computed tomographic (CT) simulation scan… CONTINUE READING
