Adaptive therapy ramps dosimetric accuracy

A multi-institutional research team has conducted a dosimetric assessment of all types of real-time adaptive radiotherapy systems. They also tested the hypothesis that regardless of which system is used, dosimetric accuracy is improved compared to non-adaptive radiotherapy systems in the presence of tumour motion. The study findings confirmed their hypothesis that all adaptive systems accurately accounted for tumour motion and significantly outperformed non-adaptive delivery methods.
