Table 1 TCP-increase for high sensitivity of choline PET, low whole prostate dose, high γ50(ASTRO consensus) and Fowler's α/β

From: Choline PET based dose-painting in prostate cancer - Modelling of dose effects

α [Gy-1] α/β [Gy] γ50 Det. rate PET [%] Dose [Gy] SIB [Gy] Single dose [Gy] TCPconv [%] TCP Increase [%]
0.04 1.5 2.2 81 74 90 2 67.3 23.1
  1. Calculation of the increase in TCP with whole prostate dose of 74 Gy after boosting choline PET positive regions within the prostate up to 90 Gy. α and α/β are estimated from Fowler's data and γ50 from Cheung's data (ASTRO definition). For choline PET a high sensitivity was used.
