Abstract: Background/ Purpose: In radiation therapy (RT), the radiation dose calculated in tumours and normal tissue depends on how the volumes are defined. It is difficult to standardize how tumour volumes should be defined because their anatomical extension can differ greatly between individuals. Organs at risk (OARs) are more uniform, but opinions about how to define and delineate them diverge in the radiation oncology community. When OAR volumes are defined according to different guideline... more
