A TL-based anthropomorphic benchmark for verifying 3-D dose distributions from external electron beams calculated by radiotherapy treatment planning systems.

Initial results are reported of a Polish-Finnish project to verify electron dose distributions calculated by treatment planning systems (TPSs), CadPlan v.6.3.2 and Theraplan v.3.5, which use different electron beam dose distribution algorithms. Treatment of gross tumour volumes representing lung and parotid cancer was simulated in an Alderson… CONTINUE READING
