    Author(s): Rachid Errifai*, Siham Bouaouad and B.K. El gueddari

    Introduction: The purpose of this manuscript is to compare dosimetry differences based on two types of radiotherapy plans for postoperative left breast cancer. In particular, based on a clinical dosimetric study, intensitymodulated radiation therapy (IMRT) and volumetric-modulated Arc Therapy (VMAT) plans were implemented in 10 cases of postoperative left breast cancer patients and nodes. Material and Methods: In our study, the prescribed dose was 50 Gy to the target volume delivered in 25 fractions of 2 Gy. The dose objectives at the PTV (Planning Target Volume) and the OAR (Organs at Risk) are detailed in Table 1. The main objective was to respect a good coverage of the target volume (PTV). For the contralateral lung, contralateral breast, and heart, the objective was to achieve the lowest possible dose. Results: For target volume coverage (PTV): Table 1 and Tabl.. Read More»
