Abstract OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the efficiency of high-energy photons for mitigating alopecia due to whole-brain irradiation (WBRT). METHODS: Planning computed tomography data from 10 patients who received WBRT were collected. We prepared four WBRT plans that used six or 15 MV photon beams, with or without use of a field-in-field technique (FiF), and compared outcomes using a treatment planning system. The primary outcome was dose parameters to the scalp, including the mean dose, maximum dose, and dose received to 50% of the brain (D50%). Secondary outcomes were minimum dose to the brain surface. ...

Purpose: Permanent chemotherapy-induced alopecia (pCIA) is an increasingly recognised complication of taxane-based chemotherapy that may be associated with significant psychological morbidity [1]. The prevalence of pCIA following docetaxel is poorly understood and there are no published data on paclitaxel chemotherapy. Here we analyse prevalence and patterns of pCIA in patients who received docetaxel or paclitaxel across two UK tertiary cancer centres.
