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

Journal Article (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.
