4. Clinical application of intensity and energy modulated radiotherapy with photon and electron beams
Sammanfattning : In modern, advanced radiotherapy (e.g. intensity modulated photon radiotherapy, IMXT) the delivery time for each fraction becomes prolonged to 10-20 minutes compared with the conventional, commonly 2-5 minutes. The biological effect of this prolongation is not fully known. LÄS MER
