Utility of single photon emission computed tomography perfusion scans in radiation treatment planning of locally advanced lung cancers

Abstract

PURPOSE Lung perfusion scan provides a map of the spatial distribution of lung perfusion. This can be used to design radiation portals to spare functional lung (FL), potentially reducing lung toxicity. The purpose of this study was to assess the utility of lung perfusion single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) in treatment planning for lung… (More)
