Tumour control probability and normal tissue complication probability evaluation To calculate TCP, an in-house software based on the gEUD function and different parameters was developed.

The estimation of TCP and NTCP values has been performed in order to enhance tumour control and avoid damage to healthy tissues and structures. Preview this item Preview this item. To improve clinical toxicity outcomes for the different OARs, we had to grometric the dose to normal structures.

Several special editions were in process including: A working party, led by Sam Tudor, had been put together to write an addendum to the BIR report on geometric uncertainties in radiotherapy. Statistical analysis of patient set-up errors Set-up errors are a combination of systematic and random errors.

Of course, it is an increasingly important part of the clinical radiotherapy process, for which set-up errors consist of both a systematic component and a random component. The E-mail Address es field is required. The medium age is After having corrected these set-up errors, the dose distributions were recalculated and the optimal treatment plan was obtained as illustrated in Figure 5which corresponds uncertalnties 1 of the 20 patients studied.

Thus it is concluded that those earlier estimates of radiotherayp dosimetric accuracy are still applicable, despite the changes and advances in technology and techniques. Find a copy in the library Finding libraries that hold this item Please enter the message.

British Institute of Radiology, Patient set-up error evaluation in head and neck uncertqinties constitute a challenge partly because the planning target volume PTV and the planning organ-at-risk volume PRV margins must be specified.

The hot spots given by D max over the PTV decreased from Hypofractionated intensity-modulated radiotherapy 70 Gy at 2. The results of the present study showed that during treatment planning, the 3D-CRT plans were implemented and also normalized.

The uncertaibties shifts were applied and kept constant for the subsequent treatment fractions until the next imaging was performed. The impact of set-up errors on the dose distribution was shown on the computed plans plotted for tumour and OARs.

The assessment has taken into account the cases when patient set-up errors occur. J Appl Clin Med Phys ; Sign up for new issue notifications.
