An optimization method for importance factors and beam weights based on genetic algorithms for radiotherapy treatment planning.

Abstract

We propose a new method for selecting importance factors (for regions of interest like organs at risk) used to plan conformal radiotherapy. Importance factors, also known as weighting factors or penalty factors, are essential in determining the relative importance of multiple objectives or the penalty ratios of constraints incorporated into cost functions… (More)
