An inverse planning technique was developed for large-sized prostate cancer patients treatments using 6-MV intensity modulated photon beams. Comparisons of the treatment plans between using 6-MV and 18-MV intensity modulated beams were carried out for a cohort of ten patient cases. The dependence of the plan quality on the beam energies was analyzed for these cases. We found that 6-MV produced equivalent plans as 18-MV for both targets and critical structures such as the rectum and the bladder… CONTINUE READING
