PURPOSE To determine the variability of position of internal mammary vessels (IMV) and glandular breast tissue (GBT) in patients undergoing breast-conserving radiation therapy. To assess the frequency and magnitude of tangential field border shifts based on preradiation therapy (RT) computed tomography (CT) imaging in breast cancer patients. METHODS AND MATERIALS Five hundred and ninety breast cancer patients irradiated between 9/94 and 3/98 underwent routine CT-based treatment planning. Two… CONTINUE READING
