Abstract

This study presents a MLC-based, 3D grid-therapy technique with characteristics of both 3D-conformal-radiotherapy and grid-therapy. It generates a brachytherapy-like dose distribution, with D50% of 20, 9.8, 5.4 and 2.9-Gy, for the spheres, target, 1 cm-outershell and 2 cm-outershell, respectively. It may provide a strategy to deliver ablative doses to large tumors safely.
