Özet

Background and purpose: For conformal radiotherapy, it is feasible to achieve high accuracy in contouring the outline of the target volume in treatment planning process. In contouring process, target volume is occasionally defined by means of either surgical clips or skin marker during patient anatomical data acquisition. Treatment planning systems are predicting invalid radiation dose distributions by using surgical clips and skin marker within the patient. Purpose of this study is the production of new skin marker which affects less dose distributions of electron beam.
