An evaluation of the accuracy of semi-permanent skin marks for breast cancer irradiation
Probst H., Dodwell D., Gray JC., Holmes M.
A randomised trial was designed to investigate the accuracy of semi-permanent ink marks versus permanent tattoos for early stage breast cancer irradiation. No significant difference in random and systematic errors was identified between the two groups. On multivariate analysis no specific patient characteristic had a major influence on the systematic errors identified. © 2005 The College of Radiographers.
