Abstract

Pediatric patients suffering from ependymoma are usually treated with cranial or craniospinal three‐dimensional (3D) conformal radiotherapy (3DCRT). Intensity‐modulated techniques spare dose to the surrounding tissue, but the risk for second malignancies may be increased due to the increase in low‐dose volume. The aim of this study is to investigate if the flattening filter free (FFF) mode allows ...
