The Cyberknife delivers isodose profiles directly to the prostate tumor, utilizing 1) a rapid dose fall-off for adjacent non-target structures and 2) real-time image guidance during radiation delivery to correct for the translational and rotational changes in the prostate gland position.
Smart tools, such as Isodose Templating and Anatomical Group Editing are very useful as well.
Surprisingly, measurement trends for dosimeters from the unprotected group diverged from each other even within an isodose group.
A dose of 40 Gy was given to the 50% isodose line, with a maximum dose of 80 Gy.
Radiation oncologists can use Mobile MIM to review dose volume histograms, isodose curves, contours, and images for treatment plans actions commonly restricted to a limited number of dedicated workstations.
5-cm thickness was used on the surface of the lesion to provide build up so to achieve the 100% isodose line at the surface of the tumor.
This could be much faster and more accurate than the radiation isodose plotting that was required in the earlier days of civil defense operations, in which human monitors were needed to go into radiation fields and radio back their readings as they walked through designated areas.
2 Gy was delivered in 34 fractions, with the treatment dose normalized to a 90% maximum isodose line.
