An analysis of the relationship between radiosensitivity and volume effects in tumor control probability modeling.
The dependence of local tumor control probability (tcp) on tumor volume is analyzed and discussed with the help of radiobiological modeling; in particular the impact of possible correlations between mean tumor radiosensitivity and tumor dimensions on the tcp volume dependence is explored. The linear-quadratic Poissonian tumor control probability (tcp) model was modified to account for the possible dependence of clonogenic cell density and radiosensitivity parameters on tumor volume; then the ...Expand abstract
