Table 4 TCP-increase for high sensitivity of choline PET, low whole prostate dose, γ50arbitrary and Wang'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 [%]
0.15 3.1 1.4 81 74 90 2 100 0
0.15 3.1 2.2 81 74 90 2 100 0
  1. Calculation of the TCP-increase after boosting choline PET positive regions within the prostate up to 90 Gy. α/β is estimated from Wang's data and γ50 arbitrary. For choline PET a high sensitivity was assumed.
