Figures

Image of FIG. 1.
FIG. 1.

Left: Illustration of three spatial regions: Center, middle, and periphery. Middle and right: An example of the sDVH from a clinical prostate case treatment plan. The sDVH shows how underdosed voxels and overdosed voxels are distributed.

Image of FIG. 2.
FIG. 2.

DVH and sDVH for two prostate plans. On the DVH figure, plans 1 (solid line) and 2 (dashed line) have virtually identical target DVHs. The sDVH provides additional spatial information as can be seen that in plan 2 almost all underdosed voxels are at the periphery and middle region, while plan 1 has some underdosed voxels in the center region as well.

FIG. 3.

Multivariable NTCP, TCP, and figures. The “” marks the values’ locations used in the Biological Evaluation module. Examples here are: Top-left: Logistic NTCP as a function of and ; top-right: LKB NTCP as a function of and n; bottom-left: Poisson TCP as a function of and ; and bottom-right: as a function of rectum’s and PTV’s .

Tables

TABLE I.

Three SABER models for calculation of TCP, NTCP, and . Abbreviations: equivalent uniform dose; normalized to 2 Gy fractions; dose in 2 Gy fractions; control probability; tissue complication probability; and TCP.
