PURPOSE Many radiotherapy treatment plans involve some level of standardization (e.g., in terms of beam ballistics, collimator settings, and wedge angles), which is determined primarily by tumor site and stage. If patient-to-patient variations in the size and shape of relevant anatomical structures for a given treatment site are adequately sampled, then it would seem possible to develop a general method for automatically mapping individual patient anatomy to a corresponding set of treatment… CONTINUE READING
