Proton-Accelerated Partial Breast Irradiation Treatment Planning
Proton Accelerated Partial Breast Irradiation (APBI) is a relatively new treatment technique that is being utilized at MD Anderson Proton Therapy Center. This treatment delivers conformal dose to the partial breast tumor bed, while sparing adjacent critical structures. In particular, the uninvolved normal breast tissue, contralateral breast, lungs, and heart are spared very well based on the unique characteristics of the proton beam.
This session will detail an overview of the treatment, target delineation and contouring, simulation and isocenter placement, beam orientation and optimization, DVH evaluation, and patient setup at treatment. After completion of the talk, listeners should gain a comprehensive knowledge of Proton ABPI.
