PURPOSE The concept of station parameter optimized radiation therapy (SPORT) was recently introduced to maximally utilize the technical capacity of a digital LINAC. Here we present a rotational arc implementation of SPORT in which the traditional 1-arc VMAT is differentially boosted to improve target coverage while sparing critical structures. METHODS The… CONTINUE READING
