Two-Level Factorial Pre-TomoBreast Pilot Study of Tomotherapy and Conventional Radiotherapy in Breast Cancer Vrije Universiteit Brussel
BACKGROUND: A 2-level factorial pilot study was conducted in 2007 just before starting a randomized clinical trial comparing tomotherapy and conventional radiotherapy (CR) to reduce cardiac and pulmonary adverse effects in breast cancer, considering tumor laterality (left/right), target volume (with/without nodal irradiation), surgery (tumorectomy/mastectomy), and patient position (prone/supine). The study was revisited using a penalty score ...
The mean absolute dose deviation-A common metric for the evaluation of dose-volume histograms in radiation therapy UZBrussel
Radiation therapy needs to balance between delivering a high dose to targets and the lowest possible dose to the organs at risk. Dose-volume histograms (DVHs) summarize the distribution of radiation doses in the irradiated structures. The interpretation can however be a challenge when the number of structures is high. We propose the use of a simple summary metric. We define the mean absolute dose deviation (MADD) as the average of absolute ...
