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

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].…”
