Relation Between Tolerance Dose of Skin and Boron-10 Concentration in Neutron Capture Therapy for Cutaneous Melanoma
In boron neutron capture therapy of cutaneous melanoma1, damage to scalp, facial skin and eyes must be strictly avoided. Two basic irradiation conditions follow:
Dose to normal skin and eyes except tumor parts must be less than the maximum tolerance dose
All of the tumor must be irradiated with more than the curative dose.
