Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

5 Scopus citations


Physical and patient factors relative to orthovoltage and supervoltage radiotherapy treatment planning for extremity lesions are described. The radiation tolerance of the limb and the pathogenesis of radiation injury are reviewed. Prevention of radiotherapy injury by modification of physical and patient factors in the treatment protocol is discussed. The treatment of radiotherapy complications encountered in the extremities is sumarized.
