Dosimetric advantages of a “butterfly” technique for intensity-modulated radiation therapy for young female patients with mediastinal Hodgkin’s lymphoma

High cure rates for Hodgkin’s lymphoma must be balanced with long-term treatment-related toxicity. A paper in Radiation Oncology demonstrates an intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) technique that achieves adequate target coverage for mediastinal disease while minimizing high- and low-dose exposure of critical organs.
