Dosimetry and outcomes in patients receiving #radiotherapy for synchronous bilateral breast cancers Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre https://www.jmirs.org/article/S1939-8654(21)00201-0/fulltext

Synchronous bilateral breast cancer (SBBC) is rare and there is little evidence describing organs at risk (OAR) and limits to the heart and lungs caused by radiotherapy (RT). Quantifying mean heart dose (MHD) and mean lung dose (MLD) from RT in this patient cohort may lead to better understanding of...
