Abstract

In this dosimetric comparison study it was shown that IMPT with robust planning reduces dose to surrounding organs in cervical and endometrial cancer treatment compared with IMRT. Especially for the para-aortic region, clinically relevant dose reductions were obtained for kidneys, spinal cord and bowel, justifying the use of proton therapy for this indication.
