Title: SU-F-P-27: The Study of Actual DVH for Target and OARs During the Radiotherapy of Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer

Abstract

Purpose: To analyze the changes of the volume and dosimetry of target and organs at risk (OARs) by comparing the daily CBCT images and planning CT images of the patients with Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC) and analyze the difference between planned dose and accumulated dose. Methods: This study retrospectively analyzed eight cases of non-small cell lung cancer patients who accepted CRT or IMRT treatment and KV-CBCT. For each patient, the prescription dose was 60Gy and the fraction dose was 2Gy. Deform the daily CBCT images to planning CT images by the mapping of registration to compare the planning dose with cumulative dose of targets and organs at risk in RayStation. Results: The average volume of GTV of 8 patients with CBCT was 88.26% of the original volume. The average plan dose of GTV was 64.49±2.40Gy. The accumulated dose of GTV was 60.13±2.70Gy (P≤0.05). The average volume of PTV to reach the prescription dose was 95.59% for original plan and 81.47% for accumulated plan (P≤0.05). The volume changes of the left and right lung of the original volume was 88.95% and 80.32%, respectively. The average dose of the left and right lung of original plan was 9.31±1.75Gy and 4.33±1.10Gy, respectively(P≥0.05).more » The average accumulated dose was 9.63±1.96Gy and 4.63±1.36Gy, respectively(P≥0.05). The average plan dose and accumulated dose of heart was 6.88±1.70Gy and 6.38±0.91Gy, respectively (P≥0.05). The average plan maximum dose and accumulated dose for spinal cord was 24.62±5.91Gy and 26.00±5.14Gy, respectively (P≥0.05). Conclusion: The changes of target anatomical structure with NSCLC make difference between the planned dose and cumulative dose. With the dose deformation method, the dose gap can be found between planning dose and delivery dose.« less
