Figure 1 : Bone densities (percentage relative to baseline QCT) of the lesions over time, average ± SD; (A) SF vs. MF RT; (B) each lesion type. Symbols indicate significant differences within lesions (*blastic, † mixed), or between lesion types at ten weeks (**). Conclusion: In general, 10 weeks after RT in patients with femoral metastases a significant increase in bone density was seen in blastic and mixed lesions, but not in lytic lesions. However, the subsequent effect of these changes on

Since higher total doses did not lead to significantly higher bone densities, the clinical relevance of MF over SF for stabilizing femoral bone with metastases can be questioned.
