26 YOSH MARUYAMA apy with radium were carefully evaluated by Paterson and Russell (1962, 1963). , 1976). Megavoltage external-beam therapy has been applied successfully us­ ing many systems (Maruyama and van Nagell, 1982). Extensive studies of combined megavoltage and intracavitary therapy have been reported by Fletcher (1971), Marcial (1977), and others. Maruyama et al. (1976) described methods to optimize therapy for computerized treatment plan­ ning. Radium and LDR dosage were initially determined by the amount of 226Ra (milligrams) left in the tumor or placed in an organ for periods of time (milligram-hours or mg-hr).

Berry and Oliver (1964) and Szechter and Schwarz (1977) reported SLDR between fractionated doses but with greatly reduced kinetics of recovery, by incubation of the cells at reduced temperatures. 9 "Plating efficiency. *Mean lethal dose (£>0). ) effects with higher survival. Fractionated doses of 361 cGy given at 24hr intervals resulted in a 23-fold increase in survival over a single-fraction dose of 1100 cGy (Duncan and Nias, 1977); however, cell proliferation and repopulation may have contributed to the survival increase.

It was noted in early trials that HDR can lead to increased normal-tissue complications, but methods have now improved sufficiently that HDR therapy is routine for uterine cancer in some centers (Taina, 1981). The radiobiology and dose-time effects of HDR were theoretically an­ alyzed by Li versage (1966), and clinical results reviewed by Taina (1981). Taina compared standard radium therapy with HDR brachytherapy and found identical tumor control for stage IA-II cervical tumors. 1%) for HDR. 6%.
