Title Comparison of therapeutic dosimetric data from passively scattered proton and photon craniospinal irradiations for medulloblastoma Type Journal Article
Year 2012 Publication Abbreviated Journal
Volume 7 Issue Pages 116

Abstract For many decades, the standard of care radiotherapy regimen for medulloblastoma has been photon (megavoltage x-rays) craniospinal irradiation (CSI).

Recently, there is growing interest in using proton therapy for CSI in pediatric and adolescent patients to reduce this undesirable dose. Previous comparisons of dose to target and non-target organs from conventional photon CSI and passively scattered proton CSI have been limited to small populations (n
