The goal of this intercomparison is to determine the peripheral doses, during treatment of prostate cancer. Two different treatment techniques are compared: intensity modulated radiation therapy (IMRT - 10MV and 18MV ), on a Varian Clinac 2100 C/D (Varian Medical Systems, Inc., Palo Alto, CA, USA) and Tomotherapy (6 MV, Tomotherapy Inc., Madison, WI, USA, 6 MV). The treatment devices are located in the university hospitals of Louvain and Brussels, respectively. A common treatment protocol was agreed between the two clinical centers and this same protocol was used by each partner. In this case, we were able to evaluate the performance (in terms of peripheral doses) of the different treatment techniques, when faced with the same constraints, in terms of dose distribution.
