'Seamless' irradiation for post mastectomy breast

Radiotherapy for chest wall (or breast tissure) and supraclavicular fossa has some problems about field matching. So we treat seamlessly with one isocenter. If you use this method, please sure V20 for lung, dose homogenity. Some try and error will be needed about dose indication points.

 

Port 4 dose indication point  and  Port 5 dose indication point
