Tables

Generic image for table
TABLE I.

Clinical data used in model fitting for brain necrosis: Incidence of radiation necrosis after different radiation schedules for nasopharyngeal carcinoma. The fraction size and fractions per week represent values for the majority of fractions when schedules are mixed. RN: Radionecrosis.

Generic image for table
TABLE II.

Clinical data used in model fitting for spinal cord myelopathy: Incidence of myelopathy after different radiation schedules for a variety of primary disease sites.

Generic image for table
TABLE III.

Fitting results: Akaike weights for the 48 curve fits considered here. ME = monoexponential, BE = biexponential, RR = reciprocal repair. See text for definition of parameter sets A through F. The first column of Akaike weights is for a fit using weighting proportional to patient numbers, while the second column uses equal weighting for all data points. The third column considers a weighted fit, but the data points specified at a 10-year time point in Table I are excluded.

TABLE IV.

Model Parameters: Best-fit model parameters for the different repair models considered here. The ranges reported represent 95% confidence intervals.
