Localization and quantification of the delivered dose to the spinal cord. Predicting actual delivered dose during daily MVCT image-guided tomotherapy. 
Abstract:
The goal of the present work was to localize and quantify the actual delivered dose to the cervical spinal cord (SC) during head and neck cancer (H&N;) treatment.A total of 20 H&N; patients treated with bilateral nodal irradiation with helical tomotherapy (HT) were analyzed. Daily MVCTs were performed for image guidance. On every second MVCT, the SC was recontoured and the delivered dose for the given treatment fraction (12 fractions per patient) was recalculated. The magnitude and localization (CT...    »
