An analytical dose calculation algorithm was developed and commissioned to calculate dose delivered with both static and dynamic multileaf collimator (MLC) in a homogenous phantom. The algorithm is general; however, it was designed specifically to accurately model dose for large and complex IMRT fields. For such fields the delivered dose may have a considerable contribution from MLC transmission, which is dependent upon spatial considerations. Specifically, the algorithm models different MLC… CONTINUE READING
