The rotary-dual technique of the total skin electron irradiation

T. Piotrowski


The aim of the total skin electron irradiation in the therapy of mycosis fungoides is to obtain the total or partial remission of the disease concurrently lowering the toxicity level. Total skin electron radiotherapy should fulfill the EORTC requirements
from the year 2002. The rotary dual method of the total skin electron irradiation used in The Great Poland Cancer Centre including the specific technical and physical aspects, was described in this work. These aspects include the parameters and conditions of the treatment (geometrical conditions of the technique, homogeneity of the dose, patient’s positioning, additional fields and the method of dose fractionation), the absolute dosimetry (parameters and functions characterizing the electron
irradiation beam used in the rotary dual method of the total skin electron irradiation) and in-vivo dosimetry conducted during the therapy with rotary dual fields, which allows to control the dose distribution and to indicate the additional skin areas, which should be irradiated with local fields.
