Resumo: The calculation of the dose is one of the key steps in radiotherapy planning1-5. This calculation should be as accurate as possible, and over the years it became feasible through the implementation of new algorithms to calculate the dose on the treatment planning systems applied in radiotherapy. When a breast tumour is irradiated, it is fundamental a precise dose distribution to ensure the planning target volume (PTV) coverage and prevent skin complications. Some investigations, using breast cases, showed that the pencil beam convolution algorithm (PBC) overestimates the dose in the PTV and in the proximal region of the ipsilateral lung. However, underestimates the dose in the distal region of the ipsilateral lung, when compared with analytical anisotropic algorithm (AAA). With this study we aim to compare the performance in breast tumors of the PBC and AAA algorithms.
