Abstract

Delivering an adequate and homogenous dose to a large volume of recurrent cutaneous disease can be challenging even with modern techniques. Here, the authors describe a 3-isocenter hybrid electron and rapid arc photon radiation treatment plan to provide optimal tumor coverage to an extensive recurrence of inflammatory breast carcinoma. This approach allowed for homogeneous treatment of a large volume while effectively modulating dose to previously irradiated tissue and minimizing dose to the underlying heart, lungs and brachial plexus.
