Variation of the RBE with proton dose-per-fraction for tissues with various fractionation sensitivities.
Proton doses per fraction and the number of fractions for isoeffective treatments calculated to give an EQD1.1 = 70 Gy for α/β = 3 Gy [Eq. (7) ].
Relative deviation of predictions from a variable DMF α versus the generic RBE = 1.1 [Eq. (8) ] for combinations of doses, LET, and fractionation sensitivities (α/β) that may be encountered outside the target.
Predictions for biochemical tumor control probabilities (bTCP) for proton treatments for prostate cancer.
