There were minimal differences in DVHs between the auto-segmented contours and the modified contours. Dose escalation introduces challenges with regard to meeting dose constraints for proximal critical structures such as the brachial plexus. Our findings here, focusing specifically on patients treated for lung cancer, indicate that the median dose to the brachial dv should be kept below 561 Gy, and the maximum dose to 2 cm 3 below 75 Gy,for patients with NSCLC.
When patients were treated with proton therapy using Varian Eclipse treatment planning, DICOM-RT dose plans were first exported from Eclipse planning system and then converted and imported into Pinnacle planning system for dose calculation.
For lung cancers near the apical dvvh, brachial plexopathy is a major concern for high-dose radiation therapy. The two curves were 51161 superimposable. Other significant risk factors were having plexopathy before treatment OR 4. The median dose to the tumor was 70 Gy range Atlas of human anatomy. Brachial plexopathy can present with a wide range of symptoms, often irreversibly, including numbness, pain, parasthesias, and motor impairment [ 8 ].

J Natl Cancer Inst. We also evaluated the contribution of other factors, such as having plexopathy before radiation, receipt of concurrent chemotherapy, and receipt of proton versus photon therapy, to the risk of developing brachial plexopathy.
Results The median radiation dose to the brachial plexus was 70 Gy range We further attempted to address the difficulties in consistently contouring this structure by using deformable image registration. The maximum doses to 0. Proc Am Soc Clin Oncol.
Complication without a cure. Auto-segmentation using deformable image registration followed by modification was dfh to be accurate for the majority of the cases, with only slight modification needed, mostly based on aberrant arm position.

Next we plan to validate these dose constraints in an ongoing randomized phase III trial looking at dose escalation for lung cancer. At present, the maximum tolerated radiation dose for the brachial plexus remains a matter of debate. However, radiation doses of that magnitude often result in local failure, which itself cancause brachial plexopathy. Patients were retrospectively identified by searching an institutional database of patients treated with radiation for lung cancer at MD Anderson Cancer Center between March and September Several explanations are possible, including the difficulty of accurately predicting the dose to a very small portion of a structure that is itself quite small in relation to other surrounding organs; tumor motion, change in tumor size, and variations in patient anatomy and positioning during treatment would all be further sources of inaccuracy.

The suggested maximum of 66 GyfromEmami et al[ 10 ] caused few problems when the definitive dose for lung cancer was 60 Gy. In this retrospective analysis, we compared dose-volume histogram information with the incidence of plexopathy to establish the maximum tolerated dose to the brachial plexus. Implementation and validation of a three-dimensional deformable registration algorithm for targeted prostate cancer radiotherapy. Among patients identified as having unresectable NSCLC treated dgh definitive chemoradiation, 90 had superior sulcus tumors or tumors involving the upper mediastinum or supraclavicular region and had received a dose of at least 55 Gy to 0.
Most studies since have recommended the maximum dose be kept under 66 Gy. A prospective randomized study of various irradiation doses and fractionation schedules in the treatment of inoperable non-oat-cell carcinoma of the lung.
The Pinnacle planning system was used to calculate the dose to the brachial plexus using the original treatment plan. However, with current trials evaluating 74 Gy, the dose constraints for the brachial plexus need to be revisited, particularly because most of the literature on brachial plexus toxicity comes from studies of head and neck or breast cancer. Finally, the Simultaneous Truth and Performance Level Estimation STAPLE algorithm [ 14 ] was used to combine these 10 individual segmentations to produce a single fused contour, which was considered the best statistical estimation of the true segmentation from multiple measurements.
Abstract Purpose As the recommended radiation dose for non-small cell lung cancer NSCLC increases, meeting dose constraints for critical structures like the brachial plexus becomes increasingly challenging, particularly for tumors in the superior sulcus.
Support Center Support Center. This may prove to be problematic for complying with dose constraints to structures like the brachial plexus. The superior border of the plexus was initiated between the neural foramina at C4-C5 where the nerve was traced as it exited the foramina.
Schierle C, Winograd JM. The Mann-Whitney two-sample statistic or Wilcoxon rank-sum test was used to test the distribution of continuous variables according to plexopathy status. Deformable image registration is a valuable tool, especially for contouring difficult structures like the brachial plexus.
