Malignant induction probability maps for radiotherapy using X-ray and proton beams.

Abstract:

The aim of this study was to display malignant induction probability (MIP) maps alongside dose distribution maps for radiotherapy using X-ray and charged particles such as protons. Dose distributions for X-rays and protons are used in an interactive MATLAB® program (MathWorks, Natick, MA). The MIP is calculated using a published linear quadratic model, which incorporates fractionation effects, cell killing and cancer induction as a function of dose, as well as relative biological effect. Two ...
