Treatment Parameters for the Upper Scalp Lesion


The upper scalp lesion was identified and circled. A 5–7 mm border was drawn around the lesion. The tumor depth was estimated to be <5 mm. A 0.762 mm thick led shield was utilized over a 2 cm field and placed over the lesion and extended field. Superficial radiotherapy was administered with a 3 cm cone for 15 treatments of 300 cGy at 70 kVp, 10 ma. Treatments were delivered Monday through Friday for three weeks, for a total dose of 4500 cGy (Figs. 14.3, 14.4, and 14.5).
