Prostate cancer has the highest incidence in male population in Croatia and radiotherapy has been used as a treatment choice for decades. Volumetric modulated arc therapy (VMAT ) is a newer radiotherapy technique used at our department for the last year. In our study we performed the estimation of quality improvement achieved by VMAT radiation technique in comparison to 3D CRT for prostate bed irradiation. Conformity Index (CI) and dose delivered to organs at risk (OARs) have been observed. VMAT was superior in achieving more conformal dose. Th...

A male patient, aged 54, was admitted to the University Hospital for Tumors for primary radiotherapy of neoplasms in the hypopharynx and mid-esophagus, by biopsy both shown as planocellular carcinoma. Prior to initial radiation, the patient underwent 3 cycles of chemotherapy (cisplatin + 5-FU). The main problem occurring during the radiation planning was that the target volumes of the above mentioned primary tumors were detached, making together a unique, very big volume. In addition, part of that volume was to be irradiated only electively in...
