L'utilisation de marges personnalisées dans le traitement du cancer du poumon en radiothérapie
|Abstract:||Individualized margins in radiotherapy planning of lung cancer: analysis of physiological movements and their dosimetric impacts OBJECTIVE: This study is an analysis of physiological movements and their dosimetric impacts when a single thoracic CT-scan is used for treatment planning purposes in radiation oncology. METHODS: This is a study of 15 patients. Three-dimensional conformal radiation therapy was (3D-CRT) was used. A reference clinical plan was constructed and compared with plans using individualized margins (obtained by using five CT-scans). Volumetric and dosimetric analyses were made for each. RESULTS: The total volume occupied by GTV progressed quickly with the fusion of CT-scans. For a similar coverage, target volume was smaller and lung irradiation was slightly decreased. CONCLUSIONS: Even if the individualized margin was used, it produced a limited clinical advantage. All techniques that increase total volume with an aim to include more movements should come to similar conclusions.|
