Total body irradiation with volumetric modulated arc therapy: Dosimetric data and first clinical experience


BACKGROUND To implement total body irradiation (TBI) using volumetric modulated arc therapy (VMAT). We applied the Varian RapidArc™ software to calculate and optimize the dose distribution. Emphasis was placed on applying a homogenous dose to the PTV and on reducing the dose to the lungs. METHODS From July 2013 to July 2014 seven patients with leukaemia… (More)
