Abstract

The advent of inverse planning and IMRT has allowed the delivery of radiation dose that conforms tightly to the target but which falls off sharply to minimize irradiation of surrounding structures. The exquisite dose distributions, however, have their misgivings as they often lure the clinicians into prescribing a smaller treatment margin which may not be valid.
