Abstract

Over 5 years, CT of the thorax was performed on 53 patients with Hodgkin disease and mediastinal lymphadenopathy prior to the institution of therapeutic irradiation. Information obtained from CT prompted major alterations in the plan of therapy in 11 of 53 (21%) of the patients. These included changes of treatment portal size, the addition of localized boost therapy, and a revision of diagnosis.
