Radiotherapy for benign disease; assessing the risk of radiation-induced cancer following exposure to intermediate dose radiation.
 

Author(s): Stephanie R McKeown, Paul Hatfield, Robin J D Prestwich, Richard E Shaffer, Roger E Taylor

Journal: Br J Radiol. 2015 ;88(1056):20150405.

 

Most radiotherapy (RT) involves the use of high doses (>50 Gy) to treat malignant disease. However, low to intermediate doses (approximately 3-50 Gy) can provide effective control of a number of benign conditions, ranging from inflammatory/proliferative disorders (e.g. Dupuytren's ...
