Robustness assessment using probabilistic scenarios of intensity modulated proton therapy and volumetric arc therapy in non-small-cell lung cancer: an in-silico radiotherapy planning study

Abstract:

Radiotherapy is an essential treatment component for patients with stage III non-small-cell lung cancer. Despite advances, survival remains poor. Proton beam therapy holds the promise of improving cure rates without increasing treatment-related toxicity. However, precision in dose delivery is sensitive to setup uncertainties. The conventional method of adding a margin to account for this problem can be inadequate. We aimed to use the probabilistic scenarios methodology to assess the robustnes...
