AP/LAT views of isodose curves showed that absorbed dose at target point was slightly different for both applicators but there was no statistically significant difference noted (Figure-1)
Treatment plan images showing the isodose curves in the prostate region in the axial section (left) and sagittal (center) and coronal regions (right), planned according to the following conditions: without prosthesis (A), unilateral prosthesis (B) and bilateral prostheses (C).
The following generation of planning systems allowed results integration obtained from the digital images procedures containing patient's anatomical structures, allowing the graphical superposition from the isodose curves on the tomographic images [1], through the knowledge of absorbed doses percentages related to deepness (PDD), as well as the corresponding profiles (PPD), for the establishment of a good estimation in the beam quality, and through the precise knowledge of such parameters [2, 3, 7, 9].
Radiation oncologists can use Mobile MIM to review dose volume histograms, isodose curves, contours, and images for treatment plans actions commonly restricted to a limited number of dedicated workstations.
