Results:
Dose‐volume histograms (DVHs) were generated for the CTV, kidneys, spine, and liver. The comparative study of the CTVs revealed satisfactory coverage by the 95% isodose envelope with either treatment approach (IMRT or 3D). The liver, spine and right kidney showed marginal benefit from the IMRT approach. In the left kidney, the mean dose dropped from 33 Gy in the conformal plan to 13 Gy in the IMRT plan.
