Altered Fractionation- New Technologies in Radiotherapy

 Søren M. Bentzen, David Westerly, Hidefumi Aoyama
Description: Radiation therapy is targeted therapy: Absolute radioresistance does not exist: treatment failure occurs if and only if the biologically equivalent dose is not sufficiently high OR there is disease outside the high-dose volume. Normal tissue toxicity arises in irradiated tissues only and shows a dose-volume relationship. Dose-fractionation effects cannot be analyzed without simultaneous consideration of dose distribution (and combined modalities).
