The present paper provides an overview on the inverse treatment planning for the assessment of intensity-modulated fields. The problem is to find the optimal dose distribution for given attributes of the irradiated tissue. The attributes of the optimal dose distribution are delineated by an objective function. In practice, models are used that evaluate the physical dose distribution, either directly or through their radiobiological effects. In the simplest case, the squared deviation of the… CONTINUE READING
