Radiotoxicity in robotic radiosurgery: proposing a new quality index for optimising the treatment planning of brain metastases

As irradiated brain volume at 12 Gy (V12) is a predictor for radio-necrosis, the purpose of the study was to develop a model for Cyberknife plans that is able to predict the lowest achievable V12 at a given tumour size and prescription dose, and to suggest a new quality index regarding V12 for optimising the treatment planning of brain metastases.
