Do we need fractionation-corrected doses in sequential two-phase treatments? A quantification of dose differences between non-corrected and corrected combined non-uniform dose distributions in normal tissue.
Artikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift, 2010

For many tumour sites, external beam radiation therapy (EBRT) is delivered with a sequential two-phase treatment regime. Yet, there is a lack of consensus of how to add two different non-uniform dose distributions in order to evaluate the late radiation effect for normal tissue. The purpose of this novel investigation is to quantify the dose differences between non-corrected and fractionation-corrected combined non-uniform dose distributions.
