A new method of planning and performing abdominal irradiation using the moving strip technic

, : A new method of planning and performing abdominal irradiation using the moving strip technic. La Radiologia Medica 69(7-8): 572-577

We make use of an individualized moving strip technique (MST) for ovarian cancer radiotherapy. On the pelvis, strip fields have smaller width than in usual MST proposed by Dembo and Delclos, and different heights. Femoral heads are spared without needing lead shields. Thus our technique can be useful for patients previously treated by heavy chemotherapy. Dosimetric checks by computer, TLD, and film dosimetry, show a fair dose homogeneity inside target volume.
