Table 1 Summary of beam angles used in both the sequential boost (SEQ) and the simultaneous integrated boost (SIB) schemes for the ten studied patients (mean ± SD)

From: Comparison of breast sequential and simultaneous integrated boost using the biologically effective dose volume histogram (BEDVH)

Angle (°) Medial Tang Medial Boost Lateral Boost Lateral Tang
Left-sided a 308 ± 3 348 ± 3 111 ± 8 131 ± 3
Right-sided b 53 ± 4 21 ± 11 276 ± 21 229 ± 4
  1. aGroup of 6 patients with left-sided breast tumor. PTVboost locations were upper/outer quadrate, central quadrate, and lower/outer quadrate in three, two, and one patient respectively
  2. bGroup of 4 patients with right-sided breast tumor. PTVboost locations were upper/outer quadrate, lower/outer quadrate, and upper/inner quadrate in two, one, and one patient respectively
