The risk of developing coronary ischemic heart disease and the radiation doses to heart and left anterior descending coronary artery (LAD) have been very well documented in breast cancer patients who underwent radiotherapy (RT). On the other hand, there is limited information regarding the right coronary artery (RCA) doses which feeds the heart in 48% of the human population. In this study proximal RCA (pRCA) doses are evaluated in the treatment plans of breast cancer patients who underwent RT.
