We investigated the dose–response of the external beam therapy 3 (EBT3) films for proton and carbon ion clinical beams, in comparison with conventional radiotherapy beams; we also measured the film response along the energy deposition-curve in water. We performed measurements at three hadrontherapy centres by delivering monoenergetic pencil beams (protons: 63–230 MeV; carbon ions: 115–400 MeV/u), at 0.4–20 Gy dose to water, in the plateau of the depth-dose curve. We also irradiated the films to ...

Introduction Radiochromic films (EBT3) are adopted for dosimetric verification and for QA for radiotherapy; however, their use in hadrontherapy is limited to QA procedures. Indeed, a quenching effect occurs consisting of an under-response of the EBT3 film to ion beams with respect to MV-photon beams, at equal dose levels, due to the ion track structure. Purpose To investigate the response of EBT3 films irradiated with protons and carbon ions with respect to photons and electrons. Materials and m...

Abstract During pelvic radiotherapy bowel loops (BL) are subject to inter-fraction changes. MVCT images have the potential to provide daily bowel segmentation. We assess the feasibility of deformable registration and contour propagation in replacing manual BL segmentation on MVCT. Four observers delineated BL on the planning kVCT and on one therapy MVCT in eight patients. Inter-observer variations in BLs contouring were quantified using DICE index. BLs were then automatically propagated onto MVC...

Purpose To address the thus-far poorly investigated severity and duration of hematologic toxicity from whole-pelvis radiation therapy (WPRT) in a cohort of chemo-naive patients treated with postprostatectomy radiation therapy including WPRT with different intensity modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) techniques, doses, and fractionations. Methods and Materials This analysis pertains to 125 patients (70 from a pilot study and 55 from an observational protocol) for whom 1 baseline and at least 3 su...
