Radiation Therapy Treatment Planning

  • Duke; 2006 PMID 17056197 -- "Dosimetric feasibility of cone-beam CT-based treatment planning compared to CT-based treatment planning." (Yoo S, Int J Radiat Oncol Biol Phys. 2006 Dec 1;66(5):1553-61.)
    • Conclusion: CBCT treatment planning is feasible; dosimetry comparable to CT-based plans
  • UCSF; 2005 PMID 15936579 -- "Method to account for dose fractionation in analysis of IMRT plans: modified equivalent uniform dose." (Park CS, Int J Radiat Oncol Biol Phys. 2005 Jul 1;62(3):925-32.)
    • Modified equivalent uniform dose (mEUD) that accounts for dose fractionation using biologically effective dose for use in IMRT plans
