A Feasible Application of Constrained Optimization in the IMRT System

Abstract

The planning of intensity modulated radiation therapy cancer treatment poses an inverse problem and is usually solved by optimization methods. Treatment planning, in a majority of cases, requires restrictions to be imposed on the healthy organs, sensitive to the radiation, which justifies the use of constrained optimization. The application of these… (More)
