Geometric accuracy on verification of stereotactic radiotherapy with the use of a double mask versus the Leksell G frame

Research output: Contribution to journalConference article

Abstract

Patient immobilization is an important element for the geometric accuracy of stereotactic radiotherapy (SRT) techniques. However, differences in the immobilization and accuracy with the use of a G frame versus a double remain unknown. The aim of this retrospective comparative cross-sectional study was to compare the extents of geometrical shifting on verification of stereotactic techniques with the use of a G frame versus a double mask. The study cohort included patients who received RT between February and March 2016 at the Department of Radiotherapy of Cipto Mangunkusumo Hospital. The t-test was used to compare geometrical shifting values on verification with the use of a G frame versus a double mask. The mean value of geometrical shifting in patients with SRT with the use of a double mask on the laterolateral, craniocaudal, and anteroposterior axes were 0.4 ± 0.3, 0.5 ± 0.4, and 0.5 ± 0.4 mm, respectively, while values with the use of a G frame were 0.3 ± 0.2, 0.3 ± 0.4, and 0.4 ± 0.3 mm, respectively. There were no differences in the mean geometrical shifting values with the use of a double mask versus a G frame.
