Figure 4: Example of clinical case enrolled in this study where planning target volume was near to brainstem: (a) Intensity modulated radiosurgery; (b) dynamic conformal arc radiosurgery, (c) dose volume histograms for brainstem (squares for intensity modulated radiosurgery and triangles for dynamic conformal arc radiosurgery). Only 100% (yellow) and 50% (blue) isodose levels are shown in a and b. [Figure 4] is shown a case of stereotactic radiosurgery where the planning target volume is adjacent to the brainstem. The Figure c is illustrating how the intensity modulated radiosurgery plan is able to diminish the volume of brainstem irradiated respect to the dynamic conformal arc radiosurgery modality
