Purpose: This work tests the possibility of using IMRT to promote organ sparing for the treatment of CSI. The traditional CSI technique uses opposed lateral fields to treat the brain and posterior fields to treat the spine. Published manuscripts focusing on the possibility of IMRT for CSI have only looked at pediatric cases. Here, we will plan IMRT for CSI on adult patients to quantify the dosimetric gains when compared to traditional techniques.
