The concept of equivalent uniform dose (EUD) was introduced to provide a method of reporting radiotherapy dose distributions which takes account of the nonlinearity of tissue dose-response, whilst not attempting to make predictions of absolute outcome. The purpose of this investigation was to determine the level of sensitivity of EUD to model parameters for significant variations in dose distribution and consequently the reliability of the factor as a dose-indicator, and to compare EUD with the… CONTINUE READING
