Comparative analysis of dose volume histogram reduction algorithms for normal tissue complication probability calculations.

Abstract:

A model for estimating radiotherapy treatment outcome through the probability of damage to normal tissue and the probability of tumour control is a useful tool for treatment plan optimization, dose escalation strategies and other currently used procedures in radiation oncology. Normal tissue complication estimation (NTCP) is here analysed from the point of view of the reliability and internal consistency of the most popular model. Five different dose volume histogram (DVH) reduction algorithm...
