Radiation therapy has a well-established role in the treatment of Hodgkin's Disease and non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma. With technological developments, 3-D Dimensional (3D) planning has evolved as a highly precise treatment planning option. High-precision radiation therapy has the potential for more accurate dose delivery to the tumour volume and can result in a greater sparing of normal tissue. An important component of safe radiotherapy delivery is the feasibility and reproducibility of current and new immobilization devices for highly conformal treatment.
The purpose of this study is to determine the reproducibility of an immobilization device known as BodyFIX(TM) using conventional treatment techniques.
