    In the treatment of early stage breast cancer breast conserving surgery (BCS) followed by whole breast irradiation (WBI) is a standard method. The impact of the tumor bed boost following WBI is well-defined, but there are various delivery methods. In this study the electron and the photon boost techniques were compared. For 78 early stage breast cancer patients both CT based 3D conformal photon boost and electron boost plans were created. For dosimetric comparison coverage index (CI), external volume index (EI) and conformality index (COIN) were studied. Lung volume receiving a dose of 2 Gy was also reviewed. Seventy-eight patients with 156 plans were compared. The mean tumor bed volume was measured as 61.39 cm3 the mean tumor bed-skin distance was 3.13 cm. In the case of CI and COIN significant differences were found in favor of the photon boost. In the comparison of EI no significant difference was detected between the two techniques. The mean lung volume receiving 2 Gy were 42.3 and 168.35 cm3, for photons and electrons respectively. In the adjuvant treatment of early stage breast cancer WBI followed by conformal photon boost showed to be superior to electron boost in focus of the COIN and CI.
