Abstract

The correlation between bladder dose-wall-histogram (DWH) and dose-volume-histogram (DVH), dose-surface-histogram (DSH), and DVH-5/10 was investigated in a group of 28 patients; bladder walls were drawn on T2-MRI. DVH showed the poorest correlation with DWH; DSH or DVH-5/10 should be preferred in planning; absolute DVH may be used for radical patients, although less robust.
