Case Number 108011 - Marrow Manager

Description:  Definitive and palliative radiation therapy affects normal bone marrow and can have implications regarding the safety of administering chemotherapy. Whether a patient has received radiotherapy prior to, following, or concurrently with chemotherapy, the amount of bone marrow irradiated can have implications relative to a patient's blood counts and risk of infection, bleeding and/or anemia. The radiation bone marrow quotient computer program allows the radiation fields to be drawn on a diagram of a human skeleton and the percentage of bone marrow irradiated is quickly ascertained.
The effect of the radiation on the bone marrow and the blood counts will be the function of the volume of bone marrow irradiated, the dose of the radiation delivered, the health of the bone marrow radiated, and the baseline blood counts at the the time of treatment.
