- Internal fiducial markers can assist dose escalation in treatment of prostate cancer: result of organ motion simulationsM Zhang
British Columbia Cancer Center Fraser Valley Centre, Surrey, British Columbia V3V 1Z2, Canada
Phys Med Biol 51:269-85. 2006..Based on the available dose-response data for intermediate risk prostate patients, this is estimated to result in a 20% increase of local control and significantly reduced rectal complications...

- The radiobiological effect of intra-fraction dose-rate modulation in intensity modulated radiation therapy (IMRT)J M Bewes
School of Physics, University of Sydney, Sydney, NSW, Australia
Phys Med Biol 53:3567-78. 2008..We find that extended delivery times can substantially increase the cell survival. This also suggests that regional variation in the dose-rate history across a tumor, which is inherent to IMRT, will affect radiation dose efficacy...
