Christopher G. Jacobs, Eva S. Zinreich, Elliot K. Fishman, Stanley S. Siegelman

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Computed tomography was used in the pretreatment evaluation of three patients with neoplasms involving the axillary region. Radiation therapy treatment fields were more accurately defined using the computed tomography data. Computed tomography has a valuable role in radiotherapy planning in patients with tumors involving the axillary region.
