With the improvement of mobile device performance, the requirement of equivalent dose description in intensity-modulated radiation therapy is increasing in mobile multimedia for healthcare. The emergence of mobile cloud computing will provide cloud servers and storage for intensity-modulated radiotherapy (IMRT) mobile applications, thus realizing visualized radiotherapy in a real sense. Equivalent uniform dose (EUD) is a biomedical indicator based on the dose measure. In this paper, the dose… 



Estimation of the effects of normal tissue sparing using equivalent uniform dose-based optimization

It was concluded that EUD optimized plans offer added advantage of less OAR dose as well as selectively boosting dose to gross tumor volume and inhomogeneous dose could be intentionally dumped on the high-risk volume to achieve high local control.

SU-F-T-335: Piecewise Uniform Dose Prescription and Optimization Based On PET/CT Images.

A piecewise uniform dose prescription (PUDP) based on PET/CT images of tumor is proposed which can spare organs at risk (OARs) better and does not decrease the tumor control probability (TCP).

Coverage-based constraints for IMRT optimization

This work introduces coverage-based constraints for intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) treatment planning and shows that approaches relying on objectives to induce a specific coverage of the clinical target volumes are inevitably sensitive to variation of the relative weighting of the objectives.

On the gEUD biological optimization objective for organs at risk in Photon Optimizer of Eclipse treatment planning system

The performances and efficacy of the biologically based gEUD (generalized Equivalent Uniform Dose) objective implemented in the Photon Optimizer of Varian Eclipse treatment planning system have been here analyzed.

A fast jaw‐tracking model for VMAT and IMRT Monte Carlo simulations

An efficiency‐enhancement method for secondary collimator modeling is presented in the context of a tool for MC‐based dose second checks, which constitutes an accuracy trade‐off in the source model for the sake of efficiency enhancement, but maintains the advantages of MC transport in patient heterogeneities.

The benefit of using bladder sub-volume equivalent uniform dose constraints in prostate intensity-modulated radiotherapy planning

Separating the bladder wall into two parts with appropriate EUD optimization may reduce bladder toxicity in prostate IMRT, and combining biological constraints with physical constraints in the organs at risk at the inverse planning step of IMRT may improve the dose distribution.

Evaluation of MLC performance in VMAT and dynamic IMRT by log file analysis.

Investigating multi-objective fluence and beam orientation IMRT optimization

Pareto-aware radiotherapy evolutionary treatment optimization (PARETO) is demonstrated, a multi-objective tool featuring such bird's-eye-view functionality, which optimizes fluence patterns and beam angles for intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) treatment planning.
