Dosimetric Comparison of Two Planning Software Applications for Treatment of Brain Metastases


Marie-Claude Biston, PhD, from Centre Léon Bérard in Lyon, France makes a dosimetric comparison between two planning applications, Elements Multiple Brain Mets SRS and CyberKnife Multi Plan, for the treatment of brain metastases. She begins by giving an overview of stereotactic treatments at her facility. She then states the objective of the study was to evaluate the performance of the Elements software compared to Multi Plan and to assess efficiency compared to VMAT. She then outlines the material and methods of the study using specific examples from the study to demonstrate the results.
