Figures

FIG. 1.

A plot shows differential DVHs of rectum obtained from a four-field hypofractionated 3D-CRT treatment plan for prostate. Differential volume of rectum was plotted against original physical doses and corresponding converted biological effective doses and equivalent doses.

FIG. 2.

A plot shows differential DVHs of rectum obtained from a HDR-BT as monotherapy treatment plan for prostate.

Image of FIG. 3.
FIG. 3.

A plot shows differential DVHs of rectum obtained from a LDR-BT as monotherapy treatment plan for prostate.

Image of FIG. 4.
FIG. 4.

A plot shows changes in rectal NTCP (%) in fractionated 3D-CRT (●) and HDR-BT monotherapy (◻) corresponding to variation in the value of rectal ratio.

FIG. 5.

A plot shows changes in rectal NTCP (%) in fractionated 3D-CRT (●) and HDR-BT monotherapy (◻) corresponding to variation in the value of parameter .

Image of FIG. 6.
FIG. 6.

A plot shows changes in rectal NTCP (%) in fractionated 3D-CRT (●) and HDR-BT monotherapy (◻) corresponding to variation in the value of parameter .
