PURPOSE Rotational therapy treatment planning for rotationally symmetric geometry of tumor and healthy tissue provides an important example of testing various approaches to optimizing dose distributions for therapeutic x-ray irradiations. In this article, dose distribution optimization is formulated as a variational problem. This problem is solved(More)
The Yang diffusion transport equation for charged particles was modified to allow the linear angular scattering power to vary with penetration depth in the scattering medium. Assuming charged particle energy loss to be a linear function of depth, conditional solutions to this transport equation have been found for the two cases of interest specified by(More)
