where, the EBRT of total dose 50 Gy (Gray) in 25 fractions, 200 cGy (centigray) per fraction daily for 5 days a week was given with linear accelerator along with injection cisplatin 35 mg/[m.sup.2] intravenous over 1 h infusion was given weekly during EBRT course.
The Elekta Precise Clinical Linear Accelerator was calibrated using a large water phantom before this study was done using a 6 MV photon beam to give 100 cGy (1 Gy) at 100 MU with a pre-calibrated NE 2570/1 Farmer-Type Ionization Chamber to determine the absorbed dose.
We further investigated if the CG-rich oxidized cfDNA penetrates into cells after treating them with 10 cGy of IR.
Irradiation was accomplished at a dose of 1000 cGy from a 60Co source at a distance of 80 cm at a rate of 96 cGy/min.
The computer-based calculated dose within entire PTV ranged from 99.7 to 101.6 cGy, and the dose inhomogeneity was 1.9% within the PTV.

The dose of radiation administered was 11.7 cGy per scan, as measured by dosimeter.
Total radiation dose varied from 6000 cGy to 7920 cGy (mean 6900 cGy, median 7000 cGy).
Adjuvant therapy with 5-flourousil and gemcitabine for 6 months andradiotherapywiththe dose of 4500 cGy for 5 were decided to be given to the patient.
