BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Currently, inverse planning for intensity-modulated radiotherapy (IMRT) can be a time-consuming trial and error process. This is because many planning objectives are inherently contradictory and cannot reach their individual optimum all at the same time. Therefore in clinical practice the potential of IMRT cannot be fully exploited for all patients. Multicriteria (multiobjective) optimization combined with interactive plan navigation is a promising approach to overcome… CONTINUE READING
