Abstract: With a 3D system we obtained optimal target coverage and a reduction of the dose to critical structures (statistically significant only for the lung). From a clinical point of view, this 0.9% reduction in the mean irradiated lung volume is probably not significant, as the percentage irradiated with a 2D system is considerably below the recommended value. Furthermore, our analysis was performed in a relatively small group of patients; for a reliable estimate larger series would be required. Consequently, the 3D… Show more

The possibilities and limits of commonly used techniques for breast irradiation with two tangential fields in the supine position have been discussed over recent years [6,7]. Optimized radiation treatment planning plays a critical role in the care of breast cancer patients.…”

“…For several tumor entities including breast cancer, advantages over conventional simulation have been described [4-6, 8, 13, 24, 26, 30]. Target areas in difficult anatomic regions could reliably be included, and organs at risk, e.g., lung and heart, could be spared at the same time [7,12]. In certain circumstances, a virtual simulation has been shown to be cost-effective [5,10,17].…”
