PURPOSE Whole abdominopelvic radiation therapy (WAPRT) is a treatment option in the palliation of patients with relapsed ovarian cancer. With conventional techniques, kidneys and liver are the dose- and homogeneity-limiting organs. We developed a planning strategy for intensity-modulated arc therapy (IMAT) and report on the treatment plans of the first 5 treated patients. METHODS AND MATERIALS Five consecutive patients with histologically proven relapsed ovarian cancer were sent to our… CONTINUE READING
