Abstract

Finding out the best treatment plan that could be designed for a specific patient could be a difficult task. Benefits on terms of better tumor coverage have to be balanced against the drawbacks of poorer organ at risk sparing in order to make the decision on the optimum treatment technique. A large variety of photon beam radiotherapy (RT) techniques are currently available. The relative merits of different 34 treatment modalities for a prostate cancer, using the same CT data set and contours, have been analyzed in terms of the area under the Uncomplicated Control Probability curve. IMRT forward techniques have resulted to be the best ranked treatment modalities.
