Tailored strategies for radiation therapy in classical Hodgkins lymphoma
Critical Reviews in Oncology/Hematology, 04/09/2012Terezakis SA et al.
Radiotherapeutic advances have contributed to the evolution of Hodgkin's lymphoma (HL) treatment paradigms. A reduction in radiation therapy (RT) field size and dose has the potential to significantly impact the therapeutic ratio by diminishing late toxicities while maintaining curability. Substantial progress in risk stratification has contributed to the development of tailored RT strategies which address both field design as well as dose. Technologic improvements have also enhanced the ability to adapt the RT technique to the individual patient.
