Biologically Effective Equivalent Uniform Dose to compute Tumor Control Probability and Normal Tissue Complication Probability

  1. 1. Concept of Biologically Effective Equivalent Uniform Dose to compute Tumor Control Probability and Normal Tissue Complication Probability for IMRT Plans. T. S. KEHWAR , D.Sc., Ph.D. M. Saiful Huq, PhD and Dwight E. Heron, MD University of Pittsburgh Cancer Institute UPMC Cancer Centers, Pittsburgh
  2. 2. <ul><li>BEEUD concept is the radiation biological dose which produces equivalent biological effect to that of a uniform radiation dose. </li></ul><ul><li>Using BEEUD methodology TCP and NTCP values were calculated for IMRT plans generated by Eclipse (sample case) and ADAC Pinnacle (Clinical cases) planning systems. </li></ul><ul><li>Comparison of the results from BEEUD concept and other methods were made to determine the efficacy of the concept. </li></ul>OBJECTIVES
  3. 3. <ul><li>TV is divided into n number of sub-volumes (voxels) and assumed that each voxel has uniform dose distribution. </li></ul><ul><li>Voxel based TCP for TV is given by </li></ul><ul><li>TCP =  i TCP i = exp[ -   i v i exp( -  BED ti )] (1) </li></ul>BEEUD for Tumors Tumor with non-uniform dose distribution SANCHEZ-NIETO, B & NAHUM, AE.

  4. 4. <ul><li>TCP for TV is given by </li></ul><ul><li>TCP = exp[ -  V exp( -  BEEUD t )] (2) </li></ul><ul><li>From Eqs. (1) & (2), we have derived </li></ul><ul><li>BEEUD t = - (1/  ) ln[(1/V)  i v i exp( -  BED ti )] (3) </li></ul>Tumor with uniform dose distribution

  6. 6. <ul><li>Organ/normal tissue close to TV have very high dose gradient. </li></ul><ul><li>Organ volume is divided into ‘ n ’ small voxels of infinitasimal volumes and assumed that each voxel has uniform dose disribution. </li></ul>Tumor Normal tissue/organ D ref
  7. 7. <ul><li>One of the limitation of NTCP concept (Eq.4) that it can not calculate net NTCP using voxel by voxel method, because it’s not an additive term of volume. </li></ul><ul><li>Additive form of volume is given by NTCP Factor </li></ul><ul><li>NTCPF i = exp[(N 0 ) -1/k (V i /V 0 ) exp{(  /k) BED ni }] (5) </li></ul><ul><li>Sum of voxel based NTCPF for entire organ / normal tissue volume </li></ul><ul><li>NTCPF = exp[(N 0 ) -1/k  i {(V i /V 0 ) exp[(  /k) BED ni ]}] (6) </li></ul>BEEUD for normal tissues
  8. 8. <ul><li>For BEEUD n NTCPF is given by </li></ul><ul><li>NTCPF = exp[(N 0 ) -1/k (V 0 /V 0 )exp{(  /k) BEEUD n }] </li></ul><ul><li>or NTCPF = exp[(N 0 ) -1/k exp{(  /k) BEEUD n }] (7) </li></ul><ul><li>Eqs. (6) & (7) gives </li></ul><ul><li>BEEUD n = (k/  ) ln[  i {(V i /V 0 ) exp[(  /k) BED i ]}] (8) </li></ul><ul><li>And NTCP for whole organ may be written as </li></ul><ul><li>NTCP = exp[– N 0 exp(–  BEEUD n )] (9) </li></ul>Normal tissue with Uniform dose distribution
  9. 9. <ul><li>Two IMRT plans generated for a sample cases </li></ul><ul><li>PTV1 = prostate + seminal vesicles+1.0 cm, </li></ul><ul><li>PTV2 =prostate + 0.75 cm. </li></ul><ul><li>SqIB plan: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>54Gy/27Fx to PTV1 followed a boost of 24Gy/12Fx to PTV2. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>SIB plan: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>54Gy/27Fx to PTV1 and 78Gy/27Fx to PTV2. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Maximum dose limits of 50Gy for bladder and femurs, 45Gy for rectum, </li></ul><ul><li>priority of 80% and limiting volume to 10% . </li></ul><ul><li>dDVH of both IMRT plans were used to calculate BEEUDs to compute TCP and NTCP. </li></ul>RESULTS AND DISCUSSION
  10. 10. TCP for prostate for published values of  ,  /  and clonogenic cell density (ρ) for two IMRT plans. Brenner, D. J., Hall, E. J., 1999. Fractionation and protraction for radiotherapy of prostate carcinoma. Int. J. Radiat. Oncol. Biol. Phys. 43(5), 1095 – 1101. King CR, Mayo CS. Is the prostate  ratio of 1.5 from Brenner & Hall a modeling artifact? Int J Radiat Oncol Biol Phys 2000; 47(2): 536 – 538. Wang JZ, Guerrero M, Li XA. How low is the / ratio for prostate cancer?

  11. 11. NTCP calculation <ul><li>NTCP for bladder is almost zero for both SqIB </li></ul><ul><li>and SIB plans. </li></ul><ul><li>NTCP for Rectum and Femurs calculated for </li></ul><ul><li>different k values </li></ul>
  12. 12. Clinical Plans
  13. 13. CONCLUSIONS <ul><li>BEEUD n based on LQ model so have radiobiological reminifications. </li></ul><ul><li>BEEUD method calculates same TCP as voxel based TCP method. However different NTCP from L – K model. </li></ul><ul><li>BEEUD method has the advantage for pre-evaluation of the plans. </li></ul>
