Radiosurgery with a Higher Tumor Dose without a Higher Normal Tissue gEUD


Jan van Santvoort, medical physicist from Medical Center Haaglanden in the Hague, the Netherlands, reports on a treatment strategy of radiosurgery (SRS) to achieve a higher tumor dose without higher normal tissue gEUD. He outlines the purpose, methods and results of the study including treatment plans made with the dynamic conformal arc technique.

Yes, I would like to report on the treatment planning study we are doing on radiosurgery, trying to obtain a higher tumor dose without getting a higher normal tissue gEUD. And we're doing that with these people, and of these I am the physicist. So, if you would like to take that into account if you formulate your questions. What is the problem? The problem is that dose levels for brain metastases are often based on RTOG 90-05 study, which means that the larger target volumes will receive a lower dose, and as a consequence, as you could also see...
