Linear quadratic model :
D2 = D1(α/β + d1) / (α/β + d2)
Several factors should be considered before using the Linear Quadratic Model :
- Dose / fraction : must be between 1 and 6 Gy. The linear quadratic model should not be used for hypofractionated regimen.
- Time between fractions : Two treatment sessions should not be performed with less than 6 to 8 hours between them. The Linear Quadratic Model should not be used for accelerated treatments.
