Analysis of pelvis and abdomenal conformal radiotherapy using TCP and NTCP models

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Technological advances have made possible three dimensional radiation treatment planning and conformal radiotherapy (3DCRT) also with multileaf collimators and intensity modulation techniques. It is thus possible to give higher doses to the target, sparing normal tissue and critical organs. Different irradiation techniques will inevitably compete with each other. A way of ranking the treatment plans produced by rival techniques is essential. In order to assign a numerical score to each of them TCP and NTCP models are required. In this paper two of the pelvic and abdomen cancers treated at IEO by 3DCRT - prostate and pancreatic cancer - are analyzed using TCP and NTCP models.
