A reliable intensity modulated radiation therapy approach with multiple opposed lateral fields for head and neck tumors


Journal Article

Multileaf collimators were applied to intensity modulated lateral fields to achieve a relatively homogeneous dose distribution in the head and neck region without using any wedges. Then the isodose distribution was compared with one planned with wedges. As a result, the many advantages of intensity modulated planning were highlighted.
