Treatment plan optimization is a multi-criteria process. Optimizing solely on one objective or on a sum of a priori weighted objectives may result in inferior treatment plans. Manually adjusting weights or constraints in a trial and error procedure is time consuming. In this paper we introduce a novel multi-criteria optimization approach to automatically optimize treatment constraints (dose-volume and maximum-dose). The algorithm tries to meet these constraints as well as possible, but in the… CONTINUE READING
