AbstractPURPOSE/OBJECTIVE(s): Respiratory gated radiation therapy of lung cancer helps to minimize the treated volume and hence treatment side effects. VMAT can reduce the treatment time while producing a highly conformed dose distribution. However, in gated VMAT delivery, the interplay effect between the LINAC movement (MLC and gantry) and tumor motion may result in undesirable hot and cold spots jeopardizing tumor coverage. In this study we investigated the possible dosimetric errors caused by the interplay between the tumor motion and the LINAC movement for gated VMAT lung cancer treatment. MATERIALS/METHODS: We studied 2 …
