    W Xiong
    Department of Radiation Oncology, Fox Chase Cancer Center, Philadelphia, PA 19111, USA
    Phys Med Biol 49:1973-89. 2004
    ..It is concluded that combined photon and electron beam therapy may be advantageous for treating breast cancer compared to conventional treatment techniques using tangential wedged photon beams followed by a boost electron field...
  2. ncbi request reprint Effect of patient variation on standard- and hypo-fractionated radiotherapy of prostate cancer
    W Xiong
    Department of Radiation Oncology, Fox Chase Cancer Center, Philadelphia, PA 19111, USA
    Phys Med Biol 50:1483-92. 2005
    ..On the other hand, for lower alpha/beta ratios, the beta term also plays a more important role in cell-killing and therefore the patient variation parameter sigmabeta must be considered when designing a new dose fractionation scheme...
  3. ncbi request reprint Dosimetric verification of IMRT treatment planning using Monte Carlo simulations for prostate cancer
    J Yang
    Department of Radiation Oncology, Fox Chase Cancer Center, Philadelphia, PA 19111, USA
    Phys Med Biol 50:869-78. 2005
    ..These results suggest that heterogeneity correction should be used in dose calculation for prostate cancer with non-coplanar beam arrangements...
  4. ncbi request reprint A practical Monte Carlo MU verification tool for IMRT quality assurance
    J Fan
    Department of Radiation Oncology, Fox Chase Cancer Center, Philadelphia, PA 19111, USA
    Phys Med Biol 51:2503-15. 2006
    ..The results between the point detector and MCSIM agreed to within 2%. A factor of 20 speedup can be achieved with the point detector method compared with direct Monte Carlo simulations...
